Dr. Stephen P. Mauer, 68

Stephen P. Mauer, 68, a doctor of Chiropractic, passed unexpectedly but peacefully in his sleep on the night of December 16-17, 2017, having succumbed to an aggressive brain disease.
Born December 2, 1949, he was the eldest of six sons born to June and Paul Mauer of Rochester, N.Y. The Mauer family has owned property here for over 50 years on Raquette River Drive and been regular seasonal visitors for over 60 years.
Steve attended the Spencerport Central Schools near Rochester, Monroe Community College, and Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. Upon completion, he practiced his art in Geneva, N.Y. for over 30 years.
His hobbies included fishing, auto mechanics, watching stock car and Grand Prix races, and making things go boom, just a kid at heart his whole life!
Having been predeceased by his parents, Steve is survived by his wife Suellen, daughter Heidi (Assaf) Wunsch, two beloved, adorable granddaughters, Ayalah and Dafna, his five brothers, Donald (Peg) of Piercefield,  Jonathan (Sekti) of Rochester, N.Y., Peter (Theresa) of Marietta, GA, Andrew (Kathy) of Warsaw, N.Y. and Timothy (Julie) of Brush Prairie, WA, and numerous nieces, nephews, and their children.
Ron Mercel and Ralph Tandy, his two best buddies since the days of their youth, share in the Mauer family’s heartfelt sorrow.
