Steven Joseph Petillo
Steven was our little 9 year old Superstar. He loved Baseball (both playing it and watching his Yankees). He loved to pitch and was a natural at the game he loved.
Steven was taken home to heaven on Aug. 16, 2010, while our family was heading on a vacation to Busch Gardens, VA. until we were sent out of control on the I-95 after being hit by a reckless driver, sending us down a 45 ft. embankment. Our little man died instantly upon impact when our mini-van hit a tree at some point while tumbling down the embankment.
Steven was the only one to perish in this tragic accident, God must have needed an angel with a contagious smile and a giving heart. We will never forget our little man, our hearts ache more & more each passing day, & our tears flow like fountains. We will always LOVE you & keep you forever in our hearts & in our family.
Till we all meet again little man……
In Steven’s memory, since he loved the game of Baseball so much, and enjoyed helping everyone, THE STEVEN PETILLO FIELDS OF DREAMS FOUNDATION, INC. has been created.
