Weintrob, Stephen D., - of Ventnor, Former Ventnor City Commissioner, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his five adoring "girls" on January 3, 2017. Steve was larger than life. He was generous to a fault, kind, and stubborn as hell. He had the worst sense of humor and only those who knew and loved him laughed at his jokes. The term "go big or go home" should have been trademarked by Steve, he was never one to skimp on anything or anyone. Steve was lovingly known by his friends as "Steve, Buy the Whole Lox Weintrob." There wasn't a gadget he didn't buy in triplicate so he could make sure his daughters enjoyed them as much as he did. He loved to play squash, golf, garden, cook and entertain. He was a dreamer and never afraid to take a risk, we should all follow in his footsteps. Most importantly his proudest accomplishments were his loving wife Harriet (Bronstein) of fifty-two years, his two adoring children Penny Wright (husband Angel Alicea), Amy Weintrob-Burnside (husband Matthew), and most exceptional grandchildren Lauren and Aly. He was blessed to get bonus grandchildren in Jordan, Josh and Chris. Brother-in-law and sister-in law Ed and Robin Bronstein, sister-in-law Catherine Weintrob and his two best buddies Oliver and Gray-cee. Steve was pre-deceased by his parents Fay and Phil Weintrob, brothers Mark and Joel and in-laws Louis and Libby Bronstein. A lifelong resident of the area, Steve was born in Atlantic City, raised in Margate and a Ventnor resident for the past fifty-two years. After attending Atlantic City High School, Steve honorably served in the United States Air Force returning to Ventnor to become an accomplished businessman as a bookstore owner including the first bookstore at Stockton College, a restauranteur (Lox Stock and Bagel/Neptune Inn), and real estate broker. Steve participated in many civic positions in the community including President of the Jaycees where he was named as an Outstanding Man of the Year 1973 and voted one of the top "Eighty-Seven People to Watch in 1987" by Atlantic City Magazine. Steve was an incredibly hard worker yet he never missed a chance to support his girls or his community. Rest easy Dad because we all ate breakfast. Services are Private at the Request of the Family. A memorial service will be held at Beth El Synagogue, 500 N. Jerome Ave., Margate on Friday January 6, where friends and family may call from 11am to 12:30pm with services beginning at 12:30pm. In lieu of flowers, contributions in Stephen's memory may be made to the Alcove Center for Grieving Children and their Families, 376 Tilton Road Rear, Northfield, NJ 08225 or to the charity of the donor's choice.

Dear Harriet & Girls: I am so sorry and so sad to learn of Steve's passing! I went to school with Steve from the 4th grade on - we have known each other since we were 9 years old. He was always upbeat and funny - just a nice guy! My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this sad and difficult time. Love, Carol

My sincere sympathy to you and your dear love ones. May you find comfort in these word at John 5:28&29, "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment." The comfort Jehovah gives is that those sleeping in God's memory will be awaken here on earth and reunited with the living. So the resurrection tells us about Jehovah's love and kindness.

Bert Sabo

Sorry to hear of Steve's passing. When he was commissioner, and I was the Fire Chief, we had more than a proffessional relationship. When I would run accross him even after he left office, he always had time to talk. Like meeting an old friend. It is a sad loss for his family and the city!
