Message From The Family

Thank you for your support during this difficult time. Please enhance this tribute to Stephen by adding your memories and photos.

Stephen Paul Waible passed away at age 58 on November 12, 2020 at the Community Hospice House in Merrimack NH, with his loving wife and children by his side.

Stephen was born on May 18, 1962, at Saint Albans Hospital in New York City to Jane and Leo Waible II. He graduated from Virginia Tech where he received a Bachelor's degree in Geology. He then began his 34 year career at Raytheon, later receiving his Masters degree in Supply Chain Management at the University of San Diego.

In addition to his parents, Stephen is survived by his wife Valrie and 3 children Vanessa, Stephen II, and Sophia. He also leaves behind his 3 siblings, Leo III, Edward, and Laura, and many loving aunts & uncles, cousins, nieces & nephews, and in-laws that were near and dear to his heart.

Stephen provided countless lifelong memories for his family, friends, and friends who became family that we will all cherish forever. He will be remembered for his many fun traditions; annual cider day, Jaws pool parties, yearly treks up to Bethlehem NH to cut down the family Christmas tree, family ski trips & vacations, and over the top decorating for Halloween & Christmas.

Stephen was known to be one of the most passionate souls; a super fan of the Dallas Cowboys, Boston Red Sox, Star Wars, Lost in Space, and Jaws, to name a few. He was a long time collector of beer cans, Sci-Fi models & movies, light sabers, rocks & minerals, and Hallmark ornaments. He loved to share his eclectic music taste and air guitar skills with all, and attended many concerts throughout his lifetime - one of his favorites being Talking Heads.

Stephen's Memorial Gathering will be held on Saturday, November 21st at 11:00 AM, followed by the Mass of Christian Burial at noon, Celebrated at The Immaculate Conception Church, 216 E Dunstable Road, Nashua NH. Family and friends are invited to attend and honor his memory, all guests are required to wear masks and social distancing will be practiced. The funeral will be live-streamed from starting about 10 minutes before the service begins, 11:50AM. There will be no graveside burial.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his name for GPA, also known as Wegeners, at The Vasculitis Foundation,

His time spent on earth, although too short, was full of great adventures and happy memories. Stephen dedicated his life to his family and brought out the fun in every situation, often laughing until he cried. We are honored to celebrate the time between the day he entered this world and the day he left it. He would encourage us all to do the same, with a shot of J├Ągermeister in hand.

Assisting the family with arrangements is the Cremation Society of New Hampshire, Manchester.

Condolence & Memory Journal

I just received information on Steve's passing and am saddened. I worked with Steve@ Raytheon as a Quality Engineer, Supply Chain Program Manager and in the Raytheon Six Sigma Group. Steve was always a great guy to work with, helpful and always ready to get the job done, but have fun doing it. He had an infectious smile and laugh. It goes without saying that Steve will be missed.

Dear Val and Waible family, I was lucky enough to work with Steve throughout his early years at Raytheon, and until I retired from Raytheon. Steve was always great to be around. He will be missed. Thinking of you all, Kurt

Dear Val, Vanessa, Steve and Sophia & the Waible Family,
As a Raytheon co-worker, I was very sorry to hear about Steve. He was a great teammate, well respected, very knowledgeable in his field and just a great person. When I heard of this sad news, immediately I thought of how he wanted to support me in a charity run in the summer of 2019. Steve was respectfully persistent in making sure he provided a donation, and followed up multiple times to ensure he did. Steve's patience (w/ me in making sure I figured out how to donate), resolve and selflessness was never more evident for me than in this example. Outside of this example, at work, I had the utmost confidence working with Steve, sought his help in more advanced supply chain issues and enjoyed working with him directly. While I cannot compare what you his close family is going through, just know that there are those in the Raytheon family that are very sad for his loss too,

With great respect, & God Bless,

Mike O'Sullivan

"Brother Leo, Jane, Leo III, Ed, Laura and kids. Mimi, Erich, Gretchen and I are truly saddened by this loss. He is and will always be in our prayers. We must all be thankful that God gave us Steve and will remember the good times. I heard that one of his wishes before he was hospitalized was to borrow the cider press again for on more "cider party".
