Stephen P. Virdinlia, 53, of Shrewsbury, passed away peacefully on Friday, August 28, 2020, at his home at the Shrewsbury Nursing and Rehab Center after a recent progression of his multiple sclerosis diagnosis, which he has been living with for 29 years. He spent his final weeks surrounded by his loving family and friends, including an incredible team of caring doctors and nurses.

Stephen was born on March 30, 1967, in Fall River, MA, to Paul and (late) Joan Virdinlia of Framingham.
Stephen grew up in Framingham and attended the Framingham Public Schools until he made a choice to pursue a technical education at Keefe Tech from where he graduated in 1985. He then furthered his education by studying electronics at ITT Technical Institute. He was later employed by Framingham Cable and then as a technician at Sears Automotive.

Stephen was a gentle, caring soul who enjoyed the company of others. He appreciated humor and laughter and was ready to crack a joke at any moment. His clever wit was clearly inspired by his favorite comedians, Jeff Foxworthy and George Carlin. Additionally, he loved watching the Boston sports teams, but his favorite to cheer for was the Red Sox. He also enjoyed the History Channel and was eager to engage in conversations about the topics. Furthermore, Stephen was an active participant in all of the social activities at the Shrewsbury Nursing and Rehab Center and was a frequent winner of the trivia contests. Stephen will always be remembered for his kindness towards people and his infectious smile. He will be greatly missed by many.

Stephen is survived by his devoted father, Paul W. Virdinlia of Framingham and his sister; Carol M. Armstrong and her husband Ted of Northborough. Stephen also leaves behind many that cared for him including his adopted family at the Shrewsbury Nursing and Rehab Center along with his aunts, uncles, and cousins and other members of his extended family.

Due to the continued health crisis, arrangements and interment will be private. A celebration of Stephen’s life will be held at a later date. To leave online condolences, please visit

In lieu of flowers, remembrances may be made in Stephen’s name to either Greater New England National Multiple Sclerosis Society, 101A 1st Ave, Waltham, MA 02451 ( or to Shrewsbury Nursing & Rehab Center, c/o Activities Fund, 40 Julio Drive, Shrewsbury, MA 01545 (

Dear Mr Virdinlia,

My deepest sympathies to you and your family. I saw Steven last year and he was doing very well and active telling jokes for the entire audience up there at his home. Best Wishes

Steve and I graduated together, and saw each other at our 10 year reunion. Unfortunately like so many things in life we loss touch until I read this, while searching for my son's uncle's passing info. so many of us pass in and out of each others lives for different reasons and for different lengths of time. More of us should really make extra efforts to know those who enter our lives. Steve will be missed but I'm sure fondly remembered by those he knew. I pray that his family bonds even stronger and look forward when they will all be together again. - Scott Wyman Class of 85 Keefe Tech "unicorns"

I knew Steve in middle school mostly. He had a one of a kind sense of humor and was a good kid. I'm very sorry for your loss.

To Stephens family,

I worked with Stephen at Framingham Cable Company and knew him all through High School. Few people during my High School years at Keefe had as much joy in each day as he did. Always a smile, always a cheer for you and a hard working honest individual. While I did not keep very close with Stephen I did get to see him at Keefe Tech Class reunions and am ever so thankful for the ladies of our class year who made sure he could be there. May God bless and keep you all and grant you peace as well as strength in his passing as I am convinced that you will daily be reminded in wonderful ways as to the joy Stephens life brought to many.

Dear Christine and Tyler,

I was sad to learn, your beloved husband, and father, passed.

When you said your family sustained a horrific tragedy and your hearts were broken, it was hard to hear you lost your husband, dad and best friend. I know you and your family always loved and prayed for Stephen and I have no doubt he is now in Heaven as you all reach out to him.

Christine, I know you will miss your husband and he will always be your one and only love; know, that gift to Stephen will comfort him through eternity. Tyler, I know you loved your father and always did your best to make him proud of you; know, continuing that gift will comfort him through eternity.

May all the wonderful memories shared by the three of you, and all your family, help sustain you as you grieve your loss.

In my prayers,
Diane Terrano
