Steven Richard Kilby (1970-2019)

Steven Richard Kilby born August 30th, 1970 passed away on Sept 5th, 2019. Steven is the son of his deceased parents James Andrew Kilby & Anne Marie Kilby. He is survived by his four brothers Jim Kilby Jr., Chuck Kilby, David Kilby & his twin brother Robert Kilby.

Steven was born hard of hearing with cerebral palsy and was a true inspiration to everybody who knew him. Steven was faced with such difficult obstacles in his life and he always continued to fight with the heart of a lion.

Steven was a Dallas Cowboys fan and held on to his conviction in a house full of NY Giants fans. Not an easy thing to do but Stevens path was not an easy one. All his four brothers took on their journeys with the knowledge that no matter how bad things got it was never as bad as what Steven had to endure day in and day out. He loved playing sports. Enjoyed board games and talking to pretty girls. In his teenage years he helped his Mom out at the Children’s school in Vernon, NJ every summer. Everyone loved Steve. He went to Midland Park HS where he participated on the soccer team. Following his brother David’s footsteps he played the position of goalie. He loved those days. When Steven was 16 he was hit by a car crossing the street by the A&P supermarket in Vernon. It began a journey of fighting back that lasted for many years. He was bed ridden and under daily house care from nurses. They all loved Steve. After years of therapy he was able to fight his way out of that bed into a wheelchair where he spent the rest of his life. His brother Chuck looked after Steven in his later years. They went to the movies, ball games, etc. Steven loved Chuck and his family. Steve lived in a house with 24 hour care in Milord, PA. Steven loved his brothers and always enjoyed hearing from his twin brother Robert. Robert always took the time to shower him with gifts and make sure his brother was being treated with the utmost care. They were born only minutes apart from each other. His brother David was so inspired by Steven he became the President of a Cerebral Palsy foundation called the Ability Center in Virginia Steven will always be remembered as a fighter. He took the cards he was dealt and played the game like a champion. He will be buried next to his Mom & Dad in the Glenwood graveyard. God waits for Steven. He will always be remembered and missed.

Relatives and friends will be received on Monday September 9th from 4-8PM at the Ferguson-Vernon Funeral Home 241 Rt. 94, Vernon, NJ (GPS use 1 Vanderhoof Court). The family will gather at the funeral home on Tuesday September 10th at 9AM for a 10AM Mass of Christian Burial service at St. Francis de Sales Church 614 Rt. 517, Vernon, NJ committal services at the Glenwood Cemetery. In lieu of flowers donations to or any local Cerebral Palsy Foundation would be appreciated. For directions and condolences see

Steven was always a character. You rarely saw him without a smile. He loved his brothers so much, even though they they were Giant’s fans. He never missed an opportunity to laugh and joke around with his friends and family. He was a true inspiration or me. I look forward to seeing again at God’s table!
