Colebrook – Steven Allen Mezinger, age 58, died suddenly in Hackensack NJ on Wednesday October 31, 2018. He was the son of Joseph and Helen (Stocz) Mezinger born in Warren, Ohio on December 11, 1959.
Steven was employed by Ozark Motor Lines for the past 5 years. He hauled throughout the Eastern United States and when asked where he lived he would always say “his truck”.
The joy of Steven’s life was working and showing his haflinger ponies. He was very dedicated to the family farm and working in the barns. He also loved going to rodeos with his children and at one point rode bulls. He liked NASCAR racing and the Kentucky derby. He was always a jokester and thrived on making everyone around him laugh.
Steven is survived by his children Amanda Gauthier of Pittsburgh PA, Crystal Mitchell and Warren Mezinger both of Mesa AZ, brothers Joseph (Laura) of Cherry Valley, John of Colebrook and Sister Mary (Emil) Kokavec of Orwell. He is preceded in death by his wife Kathy and parents.
