Steven Molnar, 69, passed away at his home in Hopkinton on Oct. 15.
Steven was strong-willed and candid. He also had an enormous heart, a keen intellect and a wonderful sense of humor. He was generous, loyal and full to the brim with knowledge gained through all of his life experiences.
After graduating from UCLA with a major in mathematics, Steven started his career at Hughes Aircraft Company in California, then moved to Massachusetts to work for Raytheon in 1989. Steven liked to say that he was a mathematician who worked as an engineer. After a long and illustrious career as an engineer, Steven retired in 2022. He continued to have an unquenchable thirst for knowledge. He was often spending his spare time researching topics of interest or reading books. Steven loved contemporary classical music and cooking. He was also an avid cyclist, riding his bicycle 50 miles a day. Steven lived life fully until the very end.
On Aug. 23, 2002, Steven met Adel at a dog park. They married exactly one year later on Aug. 23, 2003. Steven will be greatly missed by his wife, Adel Peterdi Molnar, daughter, Ramona Molnar, and their canine and feline companions. He truly loved each of them — and if you knew him, you knew it.
There are no services planned. A celebration of life will occur, with details to be determined.
