Stephen Niemiec Obituary

Mr. Stephen A. Niemiec, 94, entered the arms of the Lord on Monday, November 20, 2023, in the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital at New Brunswick.

Stephen, the son of the late Mary Wos Niemiec and the late Blazey Niemiec was born in Bayonne, New Jersey, where he resided until 1987 when he decided to relocate to Piscataway, New Jersey.

Stephen was a graduate of the Newark College of Engineering (NJIT).  He enjoyed a long thirty-four-year career as an electrical engineer working for Western Electric in Kearny and then later their parent company, AT&T in Union, before retiring in 1986.

A veteran of World War II, Stephen served proudly in the U.S. Navy as an electronic technician aboard the aircraft carriers USS Philippine Sea CV-47 and the USS Kearsarge CV-33.

Throughout his life, his free time was always spent saltwater fishing.  He would often go with family members on a private boat or even at times enjoy the experience of the party fishing boat.   Fishing and being on the water were a combination for him of relaxation, peace, sport and his love of the open seas.  Stephen was also a life member of the National Rifle Association and a member of the Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

He was the last surviving son of the nine children of Mary and Blazey.  Predeceased by his wife, Ann Rydzik Niemiec in 1973, Stephen is survived by his son, Michael Niemiec; his grandson, Andrew Niemiec; his granddaughter, Lauren Previtera and her husband, Buddy; his great granddaughter, Mila Rose Previtera and his many nieces, nephews, neighbors, and friends.

Stephen lived by his own code, molded over the years by his parents and the generation he grew up in.  He has now rejoined all those who left this earth before him.  Stephen will be greatly missed, but he will never be forgotten.  May he rest in peace.

In accordance with Stephen’s precise wishes, all his funeral arrangements were private.
