Steven M. Schug Tooth    
(Asbury Park Press)

Steven M. Schug Tooth, 26, of Little Egg Harbor Township, passed away peacefully Monday, Oct. 27, at home, surrounded by family and friends. He was born in Neptune and resided in Brick before moving to Little Egg Harbor Township 22 years ago. He worked as a medical assistant for Whiting Medical Assoc., Whiting. He was a member of St. Theresa’s Roman Catholic Church, Little Egg Harbor Township, where he served as a Youth Minister, and was a member of the Knights of Columbus Council 14165, St. Theresa’s Church.
He is survived by his parents, Glenn and Madelyn Tooth of Little Egg Harbor Township; two sisters, Irene Biles and her husband Marshall of Little Egg Harbor Township, and Staff Sgt. Christine Tooth of Grand Forks, N.D.; his maternal grandmother, Irene Jarrett of Little River, S.C.; and his great-grandmother, Joanna Schug of Burke, Va.
God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be, so he put his arms around you and whispered “come to me.” With tearful eyes, we watched you and saw you pass away, and although we love you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest, God broke our hearts to prove to us, he only takes the best.
A Memorial Mass will be said at 11 a.m. Monday at St. Theresa’s Roman Catholic Church, 450 Radio Road, Little Egg Harbor Township. Memorial contributions may be made in his name to St. Theresa’s Church, 125 E. Main St., Suite 3, Tuckerton, NJ 08087. Arrangements are being handled by Wood Funeral Home, Tuckerton.

    Dear Kristen,

    For one so young he sure touched a lot of people! Steven’s Mass today was beautiful. Fr. Mick said that Steven chose the songs and readings and even told him what to say in his homily! I was thinking of you during the Mass. At the end as people were starting to leave, the fire alarm went off! There were a lot of Youth Group kids there, too. One came from South Carolina, one from Altoona, Pa., and one came from Texas! I’m sure others came from a distance, but I didn’t speak with them.

    St. Steven, pray for us.
