On August 25th, 2022, Steven Paul Kaye passed away at the age of 62 in Florida where he lived his last year of life with his daughter Desiree Kaye, and ex-wife Alicia Palokonis.
Steven was born on May 31, 1960, and is preceded in death by his mother, Faith Stewart-Kaye and father, Robert Kaye. Along with his daughter Desiree, Steven is survived by his brothers Jeffery, Robert and Charles Kaye; sisters Julie Kaye-Kaufman, Pamela Smith and Kim Lohr, and many nephews and nieces.
Steven lived most of his life in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where he could enjoy outside events, concerts, and social gatherings and be close to family and friends, but also spent some time in Texas in his early adulthood. Steven worked most of his life in carpentry and/or construction and was an excellent handyman who could build or remodel anything up until the last couple years of his life due to a work injury. He was beyond kind and loved life and the people around him, never denying a helping hand to those in need, despite the possible inconvenience or setback.
Those who knew him loved him deeply and will miss his free-spirited and passive character that always made you feel understood and accepted. Forever in our hearts. Love you Dad.
Desiree Kaye says
I am so appreciative of ADCremations for allowing me to contribute to my Father’s obituary. So many things are always left unsaid, especially when a passing occurs so unexpected like my Father’s did, it gives a feeling of relief to know that others will hear you in his name. Thanks
I am grateful to have had the privilege to spend the last year with Steven to get to know each other after so many years had gone by. We had a lot of laughs remembering the past. It was nice to see him and his daughter spend time together. I Love You Steven and I will miss you dearly.
Love Alicia 🕉️
