CONROY [Providence RI Journal, Thursday 8 June 2006] Conroy, Stephen E., 55, of Providence's East Side and Johnson's Pond, Coventry, passed away Tuesday, June 6, 2006, at his home. In his famous poem about death, WH Auden wrote: 'Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone, prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone...' Surely Stephen would relate to that sentiment. Among his many passions were his two Jack Russell Terriers, Buddy and Nickel. Their names came up frequently and with great love in both casual and intimate conversations. A lover of rare books, Stephen would surely concur with Auden that the dog also needs tending while the humans grieve. To many, Stephen was synonymous with yard sales and with movies. He helped host a yearly Oscar party on Benefit Street where the food rivaled the parties in Hollywood, as did Stephen's love for and knowledge about movies. Although it is rumored that he was known to talk during movies, it was fueled by his enthusiasm and love for them. For many years, Stephen lived in the Middle East. From 1972-1976, he was in the Peace Corps in Afghanistan and then Tunisia. His stories of life there, with its labyrinth of alleyways and mysteries, kept listeners spellbound. After leaving the Peace Corps, Stephen chose to remain in Tunisia at the University of Tunis until 1981. It seems appropriate then, to use the words of Rumi, an Afghani poet, to bid Stephen farewell: 'That's how you came here, like a star without a name. Move across the night sky now, with those anonymous lights.' Born in Providence, he was a son of Rose C. (DeLuca) Conroy of East Providence and the late Robert L. Conroy. He leaves his partner of twelve years, Tom Limone and their two dogs, Buddy and Nickel, and three sisters, East Providence City Councilwoman, Third Ward, Valerie A. Perry of East Providence, Sharon S. Johnson of Scituate and Barbara R. McGovern of Riverside. He was the brother of the late Robert L. Conroy, II. His funeral will be held Saturday at 9 AM from the Perry-McStay Funeral Home, 2555 Pawtucket Avenue, East Providence, with a Mass of Christian Burial in St. Martha's Church, Pawtucket Avenue at 10 AM. Burial will be private. In lieu of flowers, contributions in Stephen's memory to the Providence Animal Rescue League, 34 Elbow Street, Providence, RI 02903, would be deeply appreciated. Calling hours Friday 4-8 PM.
