Thank you Pop for the many years of dedication to the youth of Holmdel. You gave so generously to the youth sports programs in town. It was an honor to work with you over the years. Thank you for all that you did. You will be missed. Tom and Mary Critelli

Getting to know Steve and all the family was one of the greatest blessings in my life.  I got to know Steve and family as neighbors, then as dear friends.  Steve was so kind, so giving and so charitable with his time and energy and love for others. I was a transplant from the midwest, and getting to know this incredible Italian family was exhilarating!  I love them all.  When I think of Steve, I hear him say  "pa-pum-pa-pum-papum" and see him motion with his hand as he says it. And he was always smiling.  Rest in peace.  I will never forget you.

Pops you will be so missed. Walking down the street and seeing you outside or sitting on my Sisters porch just talking with you are good memories. You were always so sweet to Rachel. We all miss you already but know you are in heaven with those loved ones. Pain is no more but happiness is plenty for you now.

Karen Hatcher left a message on September 4, 2020:
Sending love to the Cittadino family during this tender time. Uncle Steve was certainly one of a kind, always full of life! I have so many sweet memories of times spent at Aunt Jo and Uncle Steve's house summers as a kid, of early morning breakfasts he'd make me when he'd come in from the night shift at work. He leaves a legacy of love.
Kathy (Jones) and Steve Taylor left a message on September 4, 2020:
I (Kathy) have known Steve most of my life. I grew up on Mill Lane across the street from Steve and Jo Cittadino. Steve was quite a man. He was a great father and always had dinner with his kids no matter what. He would do anything for anybody and he will be missed. My husband Steve knew Steve for many years since he was a custodian with Holmdel for 25 years. Our thoughts, prayers and love go to Linda, Garry and Steven. Much love, Kathy and Steve Taylor
Debbie and Bruce Myer left a message on September 4, 2020:
All our love to all of you, my cousins!! He was always a father to me. I will miss him so much 💗💗
Karen Strickland left a message on September 4, 2020:
Such sad news for Holmdel. Every wrestling match and football game I ever attended, Pops was there to support and encourage kids (and tell me stories of old Holmdel). He is the epitome of the selfless volunteer. It was a joy to see him around town and I feel a loss. The family should be proud of the model their "Pops" showed us.
Susan and Derrick Healy left a message on September 4, 2020:

POP was a long time neighbor of ours. We would always stop to chat with him when he was outside. Pops always loved seeing Rachel and was always so sweet to her. Pops was a very good and kind person. He will be very missed.
