Arthur Stephen “Steve” Dolloff


Arthur Stephen, “Steve,” Dolloff, 72, of Riverside, died unexpectedly on November 25, 2021. He was the beloved husband of Patricia Ann (DeLuca) Dolloff.

Born in Providence, a son of the late Marshall and Barbara (Wood) Dolloff, he was a lifelong resident of Riverside.

Throughout his long career Steve was a marine contractor and an industrial electrician.

He was a sailboat builder for C&C Yachts, Middletown from 1979-1981.
