ASBRAND - Steven, 53, of Tampa FL, passed away suddenly on June 6, 2016.

Steve grew up in Westwood, but as all who knew him will attest, he was a Southern boy at heart. He made Florida his permanent home after graduating from FSU in 1984. He loved sports, gardening, cooking a great meal, and all things Seminole. Most of all, he loved being a dad. His sons were the joys of his life, and he took the greatest of pride in them. He will be missed by all for his quick wit and big heart.

Steve is survived by his sons, Justin and Jackson, and his former wife, Sonia. He is also survived by his mother Claire (Scotton) of Westwood, MA, and his sister Deborah of Boston. He was the son of the late Charles Asbrand. He will be forever missed by a large extended family of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews.

Friends and family are invited to attend a Christian Mass of Burial on Saturday, June 25, at 10am at St. Margaret Mary's Church in Westwood. Interment following at New Westwood Cemetery. Reception immediately after at Fox Hill Village, 10 Longwood Drive, Westwood.
