Larry Raymond Harback, known affectionately as Larry to his friends and family, passed away peacefully on February 15, 2024, at the age of 89. Born on December 4, 1934, Larry's life was one marked by devotion to his loved ones, his faith, and his community. Larry's journey began as a proud graduate of Towson High, where he laid the foundations of a life characterized by hard work and dedication. In 1956, he married the love of his life, Colleen Patricia Harback (nee Naylor), and together they built a family filled with love and laughter. Their union was blessed with two children, Lauri "Robin" (Robert) Bost and Leslie Christopher (Kate) Harback, who were the pride and joy of Larry's life. A man of faith, Larry sang in the church choir for over 50 years at Trinity Episcopal Church, where his tenor voice and warm presence will be dearly missed by the congregation. His commitment to his church was unwavering, and his contributions to the choir and church community were immeasurable. At home, Larry's faithful dog, Alfie, was a constant companion and source of joy. Their bond was a testament to Larry's kind and caring spirit. Larry's life was one of melody, craftsmanship, and steadfast love. He leaves behind a legacy of harmony, both in the music he shared and the family he cherished. As we say farewell to Larry Raymond Harback, we celebrate a life well-lived and a man well-loved. His memory will continue to resonate in the hearts of those who knew him, just as his voice once filled the halls of Trinity Episcopal Church.

Monkton, MD

Patricia "Pat" Redmond, a cherished matriarch and beacon of warmth within her community, passed away peacefully on February 3, 2024, at the age of 86. Born on January 13, 1938, to the late William and Marie O’Neill (nee Becker.) Pat's life was a testament to the enduring power of love, family, and the simple joys that make a life well-lived. Pat was the beloved wife of the late Gilbert Redmond, with whom she shared 48 years of devoted marriage. Together, they built a family foundation that would stand the test of time. She was a loving mother to John Redmond and his wife Jenny, and a guiding light to her daughter-in-law Diane Redmond and son-in-law Michael Schab. Though she was predeceased by her children Mark and Donna, her legacy continued to flourish through her nine grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren, with two more on the way, each of whom brought her immeasurable joy. A woman of many interests, Pat found pleasure in life's simple delights. She was an avid fan of the Orioles and the Ravens, her enthusiasm for the games as steadfast as her support for her family. Her intellectual curiosity was often satisfied through the daily ritual of solving crossword puzzles, a pastime that kept her mind sharp and her wit intact. Pat's love for Maryland Steamed Crabs and wintergreen Life Savers were well-known, small indulgences that spoke to her appreciation for the flavors of life. Pat's presence was a gift to all who knew her, and her absence will be deeply felt. Her unwavering spirit, her dedication to her family, and her capacity for joy will continue to inspire those she has left behind. As we bid farewell to Pat, we celebrate a life that was full of love, laughter, and cherished moments that define our existence. She will be remembered with fondness and held in our hearts forever.

Leonard W. Steg

Sep 28, 1944 - Feb 04, 2024

location-icon

Monkton, MD

Leonard W. Steg, known affectionately to all as Len, embarked on his final fishing trip across the celestial waters on February 4, 2024, at the age of 79. Born on September 28, 1944, Leonard's life was one grand, joyous adventure, filled with laughter, love, and the occasional fish tale that "somehow" grew with every telling. Len's journey began as the spirited son of Leonard E. and Dorothy Steg (nee Schleicher), and though he outlived his parents and sisters, Jane Reichel, Marlene Berry, and Sandra Mohr, the stories they shared could fill volumes of family lore. His heart, however, truly belonged to his high school sweetheart and wife of 59 years, Geraldine H. Steg (nee Stipek). Together, they navigated life's waters with grace, humor, and an unbreakable bond. The proud patriarch of a lively crew, Leonard's legacy includes his children: Timothy (Janet) Steg, Tjark C. (Sharon) Steg, and Tracey L. (Bryant) Smith. His grandchildren, Ashley, Alaine, Kathryn, Michael, Justin, Brooke, and Tjark, were the sparkle in his eye, while his great-grandchildren, Kash, Kennedi, Karter, Owen, and Archer, were the extra bait in his tackle box. An avid outdoorsman, Len's interests weren't limited to freshwater fishing. He was also a seasoned veteran of goose and deer hunting, a master of the waves with his boating escapades, and a crabbing connoisseur. His tales of the one that got away were as legendary as his ability to make even the most stoic of us crack a smile. Len's life was a masterclass in not taking things too seriously, except when it came to his secret crabbing spots—those were on a need-to-know basis, and frankly, you didn't need to know. His humor was as infectious as his enthusiasm for the great outdoors, and he leaves behind a trail of laughter and memories that will echo through the trees and across the lakes he loved so much. As we bid farewell to Len, let's honor his memory by casting a line, telling a joke, and remembering that life, much like fishing, isn't just about the catch—it's about the thrill of the chase, the stories you share, and the company you keep. Tight lines, Leonard, until we meet again. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to or in Len’s memory. To to the family or in memory of Leonard "Len" Steg, please

Paul Henry Kearney

Jun 06, 1934 - Jan 27, 2024

location-icon

Monkton, MD

Paul Henry Kearney passed away January 27th, 2024 following complications from multiple health issues. He was 89 years young. Paul was preceded in death by his beloved wife Joan Lankford Kearney, 2014, and oldest son Tom Kearney, 2019. He is survived by children Theresa Saby, Patrick Kearney and Paul Kearney Junior, seven grandchildren and six great grandchildren. Paul was a loving and considerate husband, father, friend, and neighbor. In his younger years Paul and Joan were very involved in theatre arts. Their small performance group did local productions such as "Porgy and Bess," and "West Side Story." The undying love of “Tony and Maria” could not have been a more metaphoric example of the devotion of Paul and Joan. But with a growing family Paul soon employed his vocal talents singing with a local nightclub band to help bring home extra income. Think “The Four Seasons” on the local Baltimore nightlife scene and you have “The Four Continentals.” Venues such as The Patapsco Inn, The Green Dolphin and the Club Venus Lounge saw the guys four nights a week throughout the 1960s and early 70s. All that would change in 1973 as Paul’s day job with the National Security Agency at Fort Meade led to a three year tour to a small town in Washington State. The change to a less urban setting and slower pace of life was a welcome change for Paul, Joan and their kids. Paul was often asked “Paul, what do you do at that job in the NSA?” So, due to the secure nature of the NSA workings, he would always jokingly reply, ”Well, I make screen doors for submarines!” That was Paul, a patriot with a wry sense of humor and loved by all who knew him. He was also a deeply devoted man of faith. In the years after Joan’s passing he moved into the Glen Meadow Retirement Community, Glen Arm, Maryland, where he enthusiastically coordinated weekday Catholic Mass services for the faithful. Also, he was “that guy” always there helping the less capable members on and off the shopping bus, carrying bags, and just there for anyone needing some extra assistance. After Joan’s passing in 2014 Paul strongly yearned for the time they would be reunited. Early in the morning of Saturday, January 27th, his longing was over and now, he and Joan, together, sing for the angels their own rendition of West Side Story’s “Somewhere, A Place for Us.” Join us at 10:00 AM on Wednesday, February 7th, at St. John Hydes Catholic Church, as we celebrate Paul’s life and his reunion with the love of his life. To to the family or in memory of Paul Henry Kearney, please
