Steven J. Raccuglia, 50

June 21, 2020

Steven J. Raccuglia, 50, of Millersville passed away unexpectedly at home, on June 21, 2020. Born in Brooklyn, New York he was the son of Gerard S. and Geraldine V. (Simms) Raccuglia. He was the loving husband to Christy (Butala) Raccuglia.

Steven will be remembered for his love of sports. He was an avid fan of the Las Vegas Raiders, New York Mets and New York Knicks. Not only did he follow his teams, he knew the teams inside and out. He could share the history, players and scores of his teams to anyone that would listen. Sports were important to him and even played a role in meeting his wife and starting their family. Family meant everything to Steven. He was highly active in his children’s lives and could always be found on the sidelines cheering them on. To say he was a great dad was an understatement. He loved the roles of husband, father, provider and cook. He learned how to cook from his mother, and cherished learning the recipes and techniques to make the meals perfect.

He will be greatly missed by his wife Christy, his parents, children; Michael R. Raccuglia and Danielle R. Raccuglia, both of Lancaster, sister, Roseanne Raccuglia-Lau, wife of Michael, of Brooklyn, NY, niece, Hannah Lau, as well as a host of extended family.

A Memorial Mass will be held on Thursday, July 16, 2020 at 11AM at St. Philip the Apostle Catholic Church, 2111 Millersville Pike, Lancaster, PA 17603. A visitation will be held from 10AM-11AM. In lieu of flowers the family requests memorial contributions in Steven’s name be made to the American Heart Association, 300 5th Avenue, Suite 6 Waltham, MA 02451.

I remember Steve as a gentle giant. We went to HS together and he helped me through some teenage angst. Our group of friends spent many a day smoking cigarettes and laughing across the street from our school. He was a kind and generous soul. I haven’t seen him in 30 + years. It sounds like he didn’t change. We were very lucky to have had him in our lives. My deepest condolences to his family. I am sure he loved his family fiercely. Till we meet again old friend.
