Steven G. Berghorn, 64, of Ithaca, passed away on Sunday, April 21, 2019 at Cayuga Ridge Nursing & Rehabilitation Center.  Born July 10, 1954 in Elgin, IL, he was the son of Delores (Schmidt) Berghorn and the late Ralph Berghorn.  After growing up in the Chicago area, Steven attended Eastern Illinois University.  He was employed as a Certified Public Accountant, first at Rush Presbyterian Hospital and later for the Lutheran Church in Chicago.  It was only recently that he moved to the Ithaca area.

Steve was our manager in the Revenue Audit Department at Rush. It was such a pleasure working with him. After he moved on to other positions, he would keep in touch. I had hoped to reconnect after all these years to see how he was and finding that he died is so sad. My condolences to the Berghorn Family. I, along with my coworkers, loved working with Steve

So sorry to hear of Steve's passing in the EIU Alumni Newsletter - Winter 2020. Steve was a brother of Delta Sigma Pi business fraternity. Those were good times! We may all go our own ways but the memories stay forever.
