Steven H. Corr December 13, 1941 - July 26, 2021

Date of Funeral

August 3, 2021

CORR, Steven H. of Norton, MA, formerly of Canton, passed away peacefully after a long fight with many illnesses on Monday, July 26, 2021, at the age of 79.

Steven was a lifetime Bostonian, born in Boston on December 13, 1941 and living in the city or the suburbs his entire life. He grew up in Dorchester as a boy and attended Boston Latin school before attending Northeastern, being the first college graduate in his family, when he met his lifetime love Lois. After college he served his country, as a first lieutenant in the Army Corp of engineers where he spent a tour in Vietnam. After an honorable discharge, he started a long career in environmental engineering where he worked  for the next 40 years in both the private and public sector, being a leader in water environmental  associations across New England, becoming the president of the New England Water Environmental Association in the late 1980s and 1990s. He had passion as a public servant, being a selectman in Stoughton during the 1970s, working for the Massachusetts department of environmental protection in the 1990s and 2000s, and as the chairman of the Board of Health in Norton in the mid-2010s.

His true love was his wife Lois, who he was married to for 55 years. They did everything together throughout their lives raising their boys, traveling the world together, visiting Europe, Africa, Australia, and Asia, and spending time with their friends and family. They could not be separated, and cherished and supported one another.

Throughout his life he was deeply involved with his children’s lives, Jonathan and Andrew, coaching their sports teams, participating in school events, including working with them at the former Schaefer stadium to raise scholarships, encouraging them to try new things that he was not able to do when he was younger, and instilling the belief of hard work to enable success, helping them drudge through the snow on their paper routes when they were young boys.  He was an avid Boston sports fan which he instilled in his boys through their attendance at Celtics and Red Sox games.  He loved playing tennis and racquetball, and golf became one of his passions that he shared with his boys after he turned 50.

Steven’s body would light up when he had the opportunity to spend time with his grandchildren, talking with them regularly over FaceTime, visiting them over holidays, or vacationing with them.

Steven also had a passion for learning and history. He graduated from Northeastern University with a Bachelor of Science in civil engineering, attended Cornell and Northeastern for his Masters in Science in environmental engineering, and received his Master in Business Administration from Boston University. He continued his education and  learning through avid reading in books on history, political science, and any and all biographies he could get his hands on. He never stopped learning taking continued education classes all his life and even taking classes at Wheaton college until recently.

Steven is survived by his beloved wife Lois (Lifcovich) Corr, his children Jonathan Corr & his wife Rae and Andrew Corr & his wife Svetlana, and his grandchildren Rosie, Zackary, Liza, and Gregory.
