George Stefiuk, 65, of Newport, formerly of Westfield, NJ, passed away on Saturday, May 1, 2021, at his home.
A memorial service to honor his life will be held at a later date.
Captain George Stefiuk was born on August 17, 1955, in Plainfield, NJ, to the late Stephen and Frances Stefiuk. He worked for Federal Bronze Products and founded Machined Parts Inc., both located in Newark, NJ. He and his wife Robin moved to Newport, NC eight years ago. George began a second career working as a ferry boat captain at Hammocks Beach State Park and with the Lady Swan Boat Tours of Swansboro. Whether he was boating or fishing, being on the water with friends and family was what he enjoyed most.

He will be fondly remembered by his grandchildren Ellison, Chase, Reagan, and Nikolai.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, Stephen Stefiuk Jr.
His sense of humor and selflessness will be remembered by all.
