Licensed Funeral director Steven Kanowitz has helped families in New York and Florida for nearly six decades. A partner at Gutterman’s for more than 30 years, Steve prides himself on being “old school,” committed to making things better for everyone who comes to him. He’s enjoyed a great career built on a simple approach—he loves to help people. His deep concern for others allows him to treat everyone with dignity and compassion. He also brings a comprehensive understanding of the Jewish traditions to individuals and families who have lost a loved one.
Born in Brooklyn and raised in Syosset, Steve is the face of the business at Gutterman’s and one of the principal reasons Gutterman’s is so well-known and respected in New York and Florida. If you’ve met Steve, you’ll understand why he doesn’t need a business card—he’s his own walking business card! He loves his job and it shows. He’s a great listener who cares deeply about people. He works hard to be accessible and easy to reach, available 24/7 if necessary. He’ll carefully answer all your questions and provide you with guidance and insight throughout the funeral and grieving process.
Steve has a great passion for golf, both as a player and in his capacity as charity golf chairman at two different country clubs. A hole-in-one at a charity golf outing years ago spurred him to become actively involved in the sponsorship and promotion of charity golf outings—he’s now involved with 40 to 60 such events every year in Florida and New York. He’s also been a key player in Gutterman’s philanthropic efforts, supporting Jewish and community organizations. Steve has been honored many times for his charitable work.
A resident of Nassau County, Steve is a devoted husband, father and proud grandfather of six.
