Marlborough – Stephen A. Kantor, 66, died Oct. 24, 2018 as a result of injuries sustained in a recent accident. He was the husband of Nadine (Trotta) Kantor, to whom he was married for 43 years.
He was born in Dublin, Ireland, the son of Ethel A. (Bloom) Kantor of Newton and the late Arthur J. Kantor, and lived in Marlborough for 25 years.
Stephen was a graduate of Framingham South High School, class of 1970, and worked most of his life in the marble and granite industry for many different companies in the area.
