Farago, Steven J. - January 14, 2020 - At age 73 - Cherished only son of the late Maria and Steven Farago. Devoted and beloved husband of Marti Cattoni. After fleeing Hungary in the Revolution of 1956, Steve and his already widowed Mom ventured to the United States. They lived in NYC and San Diego before settling in Buffalo. Upon graduating from Buffalo State College he became a special education teacher. He later opened his small business "Avenue Skates" the first skateboard shop in the city. A stagehand for many years, he retired from I.A.T.S.E. Local Ten in 2015. Steve used to love restoring classic Jaguars and building custom Harleys. With uncompromising attention to detail, precision and quality were the standards he sought in everything he did. Also befitting of someone who never gave up, he was a diehard Bills and Sabres Fan. A gathering to honor his memory will be scheduled at a later date. Arrangements by C. Mertz & Son Funeral Home, Inc. Share condolences at www.mertzfh.com
