OBITUARY

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Joel Stepakoff at the age of 82 in Dunwoody, GA, on January 14, 2024. Joel was a devoted fan of the Atlanta Braves and Boston Red Sox, and he cherished watching Sunday football games. His love extended to his family, scratch-offs, and traveling. Preceded in death by his brother Gerald and his parents Gertrude and Samuel, Joel is survived by his forever prom date Elaine, his children Jeffrey (Amy), Michael (Tara), and Scott (Jody), as well as his grandchildren Ruthie, Joey, David, Rachel, Sophie, Charlotte, Eli, Griffin, and Libby. Originally from Hartford, CT, Joel met his future wife, Elaine, during junior year of high school, and they married in 1962, raising three boys. Relocating to Atlanta, GA, in 1969 for a career opportunity, Joel spent most of his professional life as the VP of National Accounts for Berkline Furniture Company. In his leisure time, he enjoyed playing basketball at the Jewish Center and golfing at renowned courses worldwide. Joel and Elaine were avid travelers, exploring diverse cultures and cuisines. Known for his unwavering support, Joel was always there for those who needed him. After retirement, he became an active member of the North Atlanta Men's Club, engaging in poker games with friends and enjoying canasta and Mahjong with Elaine and their social circle. Cruises, trying new restaurants, and proudly discussing his sons were among his favorite activities. Memorial donations in Joel's honor can be made to the Winship Cancer Center, the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research, or Temple Emanu-El. Joel Stepakoff leaves behind a legacy of love and vibrant memories in Dunwoody, Georgia.
