Obituary of Jeffrey Carman Strieter
Webster/Penfield: Jeffrey C Strieter passed away unexpectedly on Saturday July 20, 2019, age 70. He leaves his wife of 48 years, Carol; daughters Rachael (Patricio Gutierrez) Strieter and Gretchen Marinov; grandchildren Nikolay, Julian and Simon; brother Steven (Sue) and their children Katie, Ben and Jessie; brother Tom and his children Matthew, Angie and Laura.
Jeff was born in Bay City, MI to Carman and Lois Strieter on April 27, 1949. He graduated from Michigan Tech University with a bachelor’s degree in chemistry. In 1971 he married Carol and they moved to Rochester, NY. While working, he went on to earn an MBA and a master’s degree in Statistics from Rochester Institute of Technology. For 30+ years he was a professor of Marketing at SUNY Brockport, and simultaneously earned his PhD in Marketing at Syracuse University.
Jeff loved spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren. He traveled all over the world and the USA with his wife. He loved fishing in any season, and for many years traveled with friends to Canada for remote fishing expeditions. During the summers, he could be found at Cayuga Lake, riding his boat and spending time with Carol at their cottage.
Jeff was an entrepreneur and ran a tax preparation business in which he was very devoted to his clients. He was insatiably curious, always tinkering, fixing, and reading voraciously as a lifelong learner.
He also loved all music, especially classical music, cultivating roses, making and collecting wine, making cheese and sauerkraut, and keeping bees.
Friends and family are invited to his Memorial Service at 2 PM on Saturday August 17th at Faith Lutheran Church, 2576 Browncroft Blvd. Calling hours and reception will follow from 3 - 4:30 PM. Memorials may be directed to Autism Speaks, American Cancer Society or Faith Lutheran Church.
