Obituary of Steven F. Tynan

Steve Francis Tynan, 67, of Berlin, New Jersey passed away on November 27, 2019.  A decorated Army veteran, he spent countless hours helping other veterans in need. 

Steve was born in Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania where he attended St. Charles grade school.  A scrappy guy who could have been a stunt double for Steve McQueen, he was an excellent baseball player and excelled in football and track as well.  Steve was a guy's - guy who the girls all loved.  

After his graduation from Upper Darby high school, Steve enlisted in the Army, which he made his career.  A proud, dedicated GI, he wore his pride for the Army in how he conducted himself on and off duty.  Steve made life long friends with his Army “buddies” and always looks at them as brothers.  During his time in the Army Steve traveled the world.  His bloodline may have originated in Ireland, but he always talked about how much he loved his time living in Italy.  

After retiring from the Army Steve worked for  SpectaGuard, where he got to know many of the  Philadelphia  Flyers.  After his time with  SpectaGuard, he worked for Shell Oil in Texas.

Of all the things that Steve loved to do, nothing brought him more pride and pleasure than spending time with his grandson, Bryce.  He loved playing baseball with him, taking him fishing, and being one of the best  Pop Pop a child could ever have. 

Steve had a heart of gold and will always be known for his kindness, generosity, and his willingness to help those in need, especially our veterans, no matter what military branch they served in.  He will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and Brothers in Arms.

He is survived by daughters Karrie Tynan and Kellie Tynan, grandson Bryce Urrutia and sisters Linda Tynan Wood and Gloria Jean Tynan. 

Services will be at the convenience of the family.

As soon as I read Steve's name I knew exactly who he was. I love the Steve McQueen reference. I was one of so many who had had a crush on Steve and thought he was so cute. I remember him playing on the baseball team and the photo of him up to bat.

Am thinking of his family, especially his grandson.

When I heard about Steve's passing and I saw the pictures of him, a flood of memories came rushing in my mind. Yes, all the girls loved him.  One night after some crazy partying we wound up at the Llanarch Diner.  Breakfast food was always the choice. I'll never forget Steve's order... one dozen eggs scrambled!  He was a crazy guy back then.   A short time after he had enlisted in the service some of us went to Europe for a back pack/ youth hostile adventure. Mike Tallent, Rodger Mckinenny and myself (can't remember all the others ), all visited Steve and his new wife at the time in Italy. They were living in a house near Verona and Venice. We were only around 20 or 21 years old then. I remember thinking how mature and grown up he was compared to the guy we knew at home.   

My thoughts are with his family.
