Mr. Oscar Steadman III, 47, passed away Tuesday, September 20, 2016 at the Center for Comfort Care after a long illness. He was the husband of Mrs. Donna (Page) Steadman.
He was born in Glen Cove, LI on January 16, 1969, the only child of Beth (O'Mara) Steadman and the late Oscar Steadman II. Oscar was born pre-maturely and weighed just slightly above 5lbs., but went on to become a towering 6'3 and was known to many as "Big O". He resided in LI and attended the Glen Clove School System. Being the only son of a Hall of Fame recipient, his love of sports was evident from early in life. He played in Central Islip Little League where he made life long friends. Oscar had many cousins that he spent his childhood with.

Oscar was a promising young athlete while attending Central Islip High School, in Central Islip, NY, where he played JV and Varsity Baseball and Football . His coach stated at one time that he was one of the best baseball players he'd ever seen. This lead him to Western Connecticut University where he attended college and continued to excel in sports and to his family surprise exceeded academically; He was a Communications major and received a BA in Arts in 1992.

After graduating, Oscar went on to work for Ability Beyond for over 20 years where he was a Residential Coordinator, managing the homes for the disabled and even volunteering his time doing residential home makeovers. A gentle giant who would give his last dollar to anyone in need. A man who was always willing to help others selflessly. He made everyone feel loved and treated everyone he met with respect and dignity. His love of spades and spending time with his WestConn brothers was equal to his love of sports. He was a beloved Dallas Cowboys and New York Knicks fan.
He continued to play sports for several leagues in Danbury and the surrounding areas.

Like the towering oak tree his roots ran strong and deep, as was his love for his family. Oscar is survived by his wife Donna Steadman, his three children; Oscar Steadman IV, Mia Steadman, Olivia Steadman, two stepchildren; Darryl and Deshana Brown, mother in law; Irene Page of New Brockton, Alabama, six sisters in law; two brothers in law, aunts, uncles, cousins, extended family. Although an only child, he is also survived by his West Conn brothers who were an integral part of his adult life.
