OBIT: Stephen J. Nazzaro, 42, of Georgetown, MA passed away suddenly of cardiac arrest on Tuesday September 5, 2017. He leaves behind the love of his life Jillian (D’Entremont) Nazzaro, his children Cooper Stephen (13) and Reese Avery (11), and their dog Penny (3) who love and miss him dearly.

Stephen was born in Melrose and raised in Revere. He is survived by his proud parents Steven and Rita (Parsons) Nazzaro and younger brother Michael. After graduating Northeastern University with a degree in Physical Therapy, he pursued his life long passion as a Physical Therapist and was employed first at Lahey Clinic in Burlington and, for the last 13 years, at Partners in Rehabilitation in Georgetown.

Stephen and Jillian met in Boston 18 years ago and just celebrated 16 years of marriage in August. A devoted husband, father, son, brother, and friend, he was active in the Georgetown community as a coach for his children’s soccer teams and a member of the Georgetown Soccer Board. He loved nights out with Jillian in Boston, talking sports and playing basketball with Cooper, and kicking the soccer ball around and snuggling with Reese. Stephen was a very loving husband who took joy in surprising Jillian with thoughtful gifts from the heart. He enjoyed attending Red Sox, Patriots, Bruins, and Celtics games with his wife, children and their friends. Family was everything to Stephen. He made lasting memories with family and friends during trips to lakes in New Hampshire and Tennessee, Jamaica, Disney World, and Ogunquit, ME. He also loved attending country music concerts with his wife and their friends. As a Christmas surprise for his children three years ago, he drove to Connecticut and hand picked their shih-poo puppy, who they named Penny, and became a loyal family companion. He loved training her, taking her for walks, and going for rides with her. She completed their family and brought joy to them every day. Stephen’s family and friends love him dearly and feel grateful to have had the privilege of loving him.

He is also survived by his father in law David D’Entremont, his mother in law Jeanine (Giguere) D’Entremont, sister in law Debra (D’Entremont) Contardi, brother in law Brad Contardi and their children Brandon and Isabella, his loving aunt Marilyn Parsons, his Godmother Joan (Parsons) Falco, and many loving aunts, uncles and cousins.

Family and friends will be received on Sunday, September 10TH from 3 to 7 PM at The Mackey Funeral Home, 128 S. Main Street, Rt. 114, Middleton. Funeral Services will be held on Monday, September 11 at 10 AM at St. Mary’s Church, 202 Main Street, Rowley.

Dear Jillian, Family,Friends Patients and Coworkers of Steve, I am so deeply sorry for your loss. I met Steve as a paitient many years ago and he always had a lovely story to share about his wife and children. It was obvious even to a stranger how much he loved you all. Over the years I saw him several more times and got to enjoy knowing him some more. I am a massage therapist and recently had the pleasure of moving my practice almost next door to him. I enjoyed talking shop with him and had great respect for how knowledgeable he was in his field. I am deeply grieved at the loss of such a great man and feel fortunate to have known him. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. May he Rest In Peace. Much love and God Bless, Deb Wood-Scearbo
Jillian, I am so sorry to hear about Stephen passing. You always spoke highly of him and all the wonderful activities you did together. May God give you and your family comfort. Marinete
Jillian and family, We are so sorry to hear of Steven's sudden passing. He was a kind and easy soul. I had the pleasure of meeting him and working with him to recuperate from both my shoulder surgeries. He and I would laugh and chide each other, making my PT visits fun to look forward to! I remember we did discuss a dog for the family and what breeds may make the best addition. I am glad to see he found just the right dog in "Penny." Please accept our heartfelt sympathy during this difficult and tragic loss.Thoughts and prayers being sent to all of you folks. May he rest in peace... Patty (Basile) O'Hearn and Michael O'Hearn
I was at a crossroads in my life when I met Steve in 2012. I worked under him as a rehab aide for 3 years and during that time, because of him, I knew PT was my career choice. I saw him as my mentor and he taught me so much. He is easily one of the most personable, kind hearted, and genuine people I have ever known. I was beyond lucky to look up to him and call him a friend. My deepest condolences to your family during this difficult time. -James MacDonald

Your are stronger than you think and know I'll be praying for you during the difficult days ahead. May he Rest In Peace. Mary Wright
