It is with a heavy heart that our PASR Chapter shares the sad news of the sudden death of our member Stephen K. Kupsov of Havertown, PA. Steve passed away on June 23, 2023. He was 79 years old. He is the beloved husband of Pamela (nee Berman) Kupsov and the loving father of David (Chris) Kupsov, and Nancy (Paul) McNelis. He is also the devoted grandfather of Kyle and Anna Kupsov and Emilie (nee Kupsov) Keenan, and Declan McNelis. Steve is also the great grandfather of Elizabeth Keenan.Steve was born on July 1, 1943 in Lowell, Massachusetts to Julius and Dorothy (nee Cohen) Kupsov. He is a graduate of Rider University in New Jersey and Villanova University in Radnor, PA. He received his master’s degree in education from Temple University in Philadelphia, PA. Upon graduation, Steve served his country in the United States Air Force during the Vietnam Era. Mr. Kupsov taught at John Bartram High School in Southwest Philadelphia for over 30 years. He was very active in athletics during his teaching career and was an off-field official and timekeeper during high school football games and more recently had moved into the college ranks. He umpired baseball games in Philadelphia for a number of years. Steve was interested in all sports; however, baseball held a special spot for him, especially his love of his hometown team from his childhood, the Boston Red Sox.
Steve was a very active member of the Pennsylvania Association of School Retirees (PASR) and was relentless in getting everyone involved in soliciting their legislators to get a COLA for our members, particularly those before Act-9. There will be a void in this effort; unfortunately, he will not be here to see the fruits of his labor. Nonetheless, Steve was recognized by the State and the Delaware County Chapter as the recipient of the John Dillon and Fred McKillop awards. He is the only PASR member to be the recipient of both awards. In recognition to his devotion to public education and dedication to PASR his family has asked that donations be made in his memory to PASR and sent to PASR 878 Century Drive, Mechanicsburg, PA 17055 or made online at https://www.pasr.org/member-donate-lpec/ .
