In Loving Memory ~
Our beloved father, grand and great-grandfather was born in Fort William, Ontario on January 6, 1929 and passed away peacefully on April 26, 2023.
Steve lived a very full life and was a shining example of loyalty, strength, and character to all his family and friends. A true Gentleman.
He will be missed by his son Dave (Shannon), daughter-in-law Jacquie, grandchildren Daniel (Deanna), Adam (Isa), Graham (Lexi) and Laurel (Adam), 5 wonderful great-grandchildren as well as many nieces and nephews and his brothers and sisters-in-law.
He was predeceased by his youngest son Donald in 1998 and loving wife Elsie in 2010.
Steve grew up and lived his entire working life in Thunder Bay, Ontario, retiring to Sooke, B.C. in 1990. For 30 years they spent half the year in BC and half on Perch Lake (near Atikokan, Ontario), his favorite place to be.
Steve loved the outdoors and was an avid fisherman and hunter. Until almost the very end he devoted hours daily to walking, swimming and golf. He was a long time Rotarian and an active member within his church families in Sooke, Thunder Bay and Atikokan.
A Memorial service will take place at Knox Presbyterian Church, 2110 Church Rd., Sooke, B.C. on Saturday, May 20, 2023 at 2 pm.
