STJEPAN BOTINCAN After a brief illness, and with deep regret, we announce the peaceful passing of Stjepan on August 23, 2017, at Concordia Hospital, at the age of 87 years. He was predeceased by his daughter Marica; father Martin; mother Bara; sisters Marija and Anka. Stjepan is survived by his wife Katica; daughter Stefica (Andy); sons Marijan (Amanda) and Josip (Maria); grandchildren Susan, Martin, Colinda, Jennifer, Stephanie and David; and great-grandchildren Jada, Hunter, Lexi, Esperanza, Inde, Ryder, Katarina and Ethan. Stjepan worked after the Second World War in Croatia in the local coal mines and on the oil fields. Then he went to trade school to learn telephone repair and stayed with the telephone company until 1970, when the family decided to go to Canada. Once here, he worked at Varta Batteries until his retirement. His passions were fishing, hunting and mushroom picking. He loved his family and his many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

  • I always found Stev to be a model old world gentleman. He brought me some of his homemade wine from time to time and always a special bottle of whisky at Christmas. I will have a toast to him today. Rest in peace my friend. - Posted by: Brent Shabbits (Stev's mechanic) on: Aug 25, 2017
