The world became a better place the day Stephen Freedman was born, and his death is a painful loss not just for his family and Fordham friends but for everyone who knew him. He brought joy to our lives because he saw the joy in life.
A profoundly spiritual man with a passion for the complementary perspectives of science and religion, Stephen spent his life striving to become a whole person. His love for God and passion for humanity continue to inspire us to strive for wholeness personally, interpersonally, and as a community.
