STEVEN ANDREW HURST April 25, 1989 - December 4, 2013 It is with heartbreaking sorrow that we announce the passing of Steven Andrew Hurst: our son, brother, and friend, on December 4, 2013. He will be sadly missed by his mother and father: Karen and Don Hurst and his sister, Katie; grandparents Keith and Doreen Routley; Uncles: Greg (Maureen) and David (Sharon) Routley; Auntie Tanis Mulder (Dan), cousins, and special friend Rachel Brooker. He was predeceased by his Amma, Marge Hurst, and his grandfather Allister Hurst. Steven grew up in the North End of Winnipeg in a loving family that cherished music, education and the creative arts, and was adored by an extended family. It is impossible for us to imagine a future without his humour, love, and talent. Steven was an exceptionally creative young man. We will always cherish his kind, sensitive, and creative spirit. He loved comedy and delighted in making people laugh, which was evident in some of the short films he produced as a film student at the University of Winnipeg. He had extraordinary dedication to learning the craft of music, film, and sound. His exceptional musical talent allowed him to naturally learn any instrument he pleased. He sang; played guitar and many other instruments; and was a budding songwriter. He played in many local bands, and proudly played bass guitar with Randy Bachman at the 2004 dedication of the new music wing at West Kildonan Collegiate. He had an exceptional ear; he could hear things the rest of us couldn't and he was naturally interested in honing his skills in film and sound. He was a cherished friend to many people in our community. He established long, loyal friendships, some that lasted from his earliest school days. He attended Luxton School, Seven Oaks Middle School and West Kildonan Collegiate. Steven was a great cook and would surprise his family with his creations. He worked at Pete's Place restaurant for many years while going to school, and more recently at Stella's Restaurant. He also worked construction for PCL Construction - where he proudly worked on the construction of the Winnipeg Floodway and the new Manitoba Hydro Building. A celebration of Steven's life will be held on Tuesday, December 10, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. at St. John's Anglican Cathedral, 135 Anderson Ave., Winnipeg, Manitoba under the auspices of the Kildonan United Church. The family request that no flowers be sent. In keeping with Steven's kind spirit and generosity, donations may be made to the Christmas Cheer Board, Box 51089, Winnipeg, MB R2X 3C6. www.seasonsfunerals.ca

  • Do not judge a song by its duration nor by the number of its notes Judge it by the richness of its content and by the way it touches and lifts the soul The unfinished song is precious and dear And when it has enriched your life and its melody lingers on in your heart, is it unfinished? Or is it endless? Sorrowfully missed and always loved. Mom, Dad, Katie and friends. - Posted by: Karen Hurst (Mother) on: Dec 04, 2014

  • We cannot describe how much we miss you and send you love and light on your 25th birthday as we recall your birth as our son and brother on April 25, 1989. - Posted by: Mom, Dad and Katie () on: Apr 24, 2014

  • I didn't know Steven well, but I wanted to. I was going to ask him to be my scene partner for the second semester of our performance class. I never got the chance. I was a cutter, and after he died, I felt sick with myself. I swore I wouldn't do it anymore. I'm a writer, so in my mind, everything that happens means something. I know it doesn't make up for him dying, but he changed my life, and probably saved it. I thought you should know that. Also, I'd like to write a character inspired by Steven in one of my books. I didn't know him well enough for it to be a true or proper reflection of Steven, but he will be inspired by him. And I don't know when it will be published, but I'd like to make a dedication to him at the beginning of that particular book. If you have objections to me doing that, please let me know and I'll honor that. I'm so sorry for your loss. He affected everyone who met him, even if it was a brief meeting. And he changed my life. - Posted by: Rana (classmate) on: Feb 24, 2014

  • As the days pass, I know it isn't any easier to deal with Steven's death. He will continue to be a very special person, and has quite obviously touched many people in a very positive way! I do hope that your memories and those of others will help sustain you as grieve and heal. I have one particular memory that is very special to me and is one that I relive extremely often. Steven and Katie were both very gracious and kind to perform music at my Dad's funeral. When I think of my Dad, I think of, and visualize Steven playing guitar in the foyer as friends and family came to pay their respects. Steven's playing was awesome and he actually played a song he wrote. I remember how that music made me feel. I was surprised and amazed and so proud of him. It was so beautiful and so well performed. I will treasure that wonderful memory - Posted by: Wendy Swiss (Family friend) on: Feb 18, 2014

  • My thoughts and prayers to Mr. & Mrs. Routley, Mr. & Mrs. Hurst & Katie. You are all so important to me, my memories with you and time spent with your family have shaped the person I am today. I love you all and wish you the hope and love you need. - Posted by: Elizabeth Edwards (Friend) on: Jan 04, 2014

  • I've struggled to find the words to write here because it meant goodbye. It meant no more, and the end. Grief and tragedy have a way of narrowing our view and making us forget. We very easily forget that the time we caught frogs of all shapes and sizes, trying to beat some nonexistent record, despite the desperate pleas of our sisters. And how quickly I forgot the time we watched the Muppet Christmas Carol three times in a row just so that we could quote it properly. I almost didn’t remember the time we were brushing our teeth and you tried to convince me that your mum and dad made you brush your teeth only for 20 seconds, lest your baby teeth fall out too soon. It’s incredible how effortlessly I forgot the many times we played Batman – each time me teasing you by almost letting motorcycle Batman fly down the stairs in a splashy display of defiance. You were one of my first friends – someone who looked up to me and who I looked up to. We messaged often, and shared some very special heart to hearts in recent years – the most recent of which just one year ago. But in my pain I couldn’t remember all of the good. Now, I remember every second. And each memory; every movie we watched, every prank we played and every talk we had now plays brightly in the cinema of my mind. While the pain of loss will linger, the movie plays on. I’ll carry and cherish these filmstrip memories forever. You gave us many gifts – the gift of song, humour, kindness and creativity. You challenged and inspired us. And, we’ll honour your memory by never forgetting the gifts you’ve given us. My heart and thoughts go out to you Aunty Karen, Uncle Don and Katie. - Posted by: Samantha Karikas (Cousin ) on: Jan 02, 2014

  • We will miss you dearly Steven. You are a charismatic, loving and kind soul. We knew you to always be on an adventure and know you will continue on doing so in the next life. At our wedding a few years ago one of the kindest comments on celebrating our marriage we received was from you Steven and we will never forget that. Love and big hugs to our family so deeply affected by your loss. - Posted by: Sandi, Scott and Lucas Routley (First Cousins) on: Dec 31, 2013

  • Our prayers and deepest condolences to the Hurst Family. Many wonderful memories of Steven in the music program at ESOMS. I am honoured to have been one of his teachers. God bless and may the memory of Steven and his music live on forever. - Posted by: John-Luke Racciatti (Teacher) on: Dec 20, 2013

  • Steven, You were always a good friend and I wish we had been closer. Over the years, as with any relationship there were trials and tribulations but the bond of all the north end kids stayed strong after all these years. It breaks my heart knowing that I will never see you again in this world. You made me a better person just in so many different ways and I hope that you know that. Cheers my friend, I'll see you on the other side. - Posted by: Colin (Friend) on: Dec 20, 2013

  • I had the privilege of performing with Steven last June among other times, ever so talented he was, a genuine gift of music along with his humor, the amount of trouble now in everyone that knew him to see his life as we know it come to such an early and abrupt end. My heart goes out to everyone especially to his ever so loving family and that circle of friends that date back oh so long ago in that short life, honored to be a part of it. May this love extend to all so we do not have to write of these times like this again. - Posted by: Kirk (friend) on: Dec 18, 2013

  • My cousin was tender-hearted and kind and he was funny and talented. All of us miss him sorely but we will hold close our memories of his smile, his laugh, his insight and his love. His light burned brightly; now we will all carry a spark of his light in our hearts. - Posted by: Madeleine hHardin (Cousin) on: Dec 18, 2013

  • We weren't close and we only chilled a few times, but still I thought you were a real legit, awesome dude. I remember one time we chilled and had beers, my buddy left to go to the store and it was just us two and admittedly I'm a shy guy, and normally when left alone with someone I hardly talked so there would be a very awkward silence. But it wasn't the case with you.... you had a way of making everybody around you feel comfortable and welcome... I always enjoyed the few times we had beers and hung out and just wanted to say what an awesome person you are. Reading these posts it's very clear you're a well loved person and one in a million, rest in paradise brotha, we'll have to crush a few cans on the other side some day - Posted by: nick (friend, west k alumni) on: Dec 14, 2013

Although I never met him, I recall how you had so frequently spoke of your love and your hopes for Steve. I hope your memories will help sustain all of you as you find your way toward. All my love, Lori - Posted by: Lori (Colleague and friend) on: Dec 12, 2013

  • Don, Karen and Katie - I am so shocked and saddened to hear of Steven's passing. Although I only met Steven a couple of times when he came to see his dad at the office - it was very clear how proud of him the whole family was. Don talked about Steven and Katie often - and I remember how proud and excited Katie (and Don & Karen) were when Steven went to audition for Canadian Idol. I hope your broken hearts will be healed in the future by all the wonderful and loving memories you have of your cherished son and brother. My thoughts and prayers are with you. - Posted by: Colleen Davies (Worked with Don at CEDC ) on: Dec 11, 2013

  • Dearest Karen, Don and Katie - I can't begin to express how heartbroken we are for you with the loss of your beautiful son. Over the years, we watched Steven grown into a fine and very talented young man who will always be remembered for his kindness and gentle spirit. Steven and I had many great curbside chats when our paths crossed as they often do when you are next door neighbors. He was always willing to help carry in one of my large purchases or if I came knocking at the door looking for a missing ingredient to borrow, Steven would rummage through your cupboards to find it. My thoughts and prayers are with you always as we continue to share our stories and remember this beautiful little boy who lived next door.

With your ear for music, your eye for the visual arts, your charismatic personality and your generous heart, you captivated every audience who stood before you - whether it was a single individual, or a crowd of a hundred. You brought joy to so many hearts, and I know wherever you are you will continue to do so. Your memory, like your smile, will always shine bright.

I still have a picture of Steven and I jamming with Randy Bachman and it will forever be a memory I cherish.

  • My thoughts are with you in your sorrow. I have a nice memory of Steven - it was a telephone call when he was about 7 or 8 years old. He was on an overnight trip out of town and he thought he had forgot his "blankie". Dad made sure though that if Steven called and he did call, that I would tell him that his "blankie" was in the pillow case with his pillow. Sleep peacefully Steven Mom and Dad did not forget your "blankie". - Posted by: Joyce (worked with Don at TBS) on: Dec 07, 2013

  • My deepest and most sincere condolences go out to Don, Karen, Katie & all those who knew Steven. I remember Karen bringing Steven to the office many times and watched this young boy grow up over the years. I loved hearing about his developing talents working as an extra in film and his passion for playing music. He had so much creativity and found his niche. I enjoyed receiving his CD compilations of music he recorded with his band back in his teen years. I was a fan and looked forward to new developments. He had so much talent and used those gifts to share with others and I will never forget that about Steven. I am saddened at such a tragic loss and keeping you in my prayers. - Posted by: Brenda Letain (Fomer WD Colleague of Karen) on: Dec 07, 2013

Although we had fallen out of touch somewhat since graduation, I ran into him a little over a month ago. We had a great time catching up, so I was shocked and saddened to hear of his passing, especially at such a young age. I wish to extend my deepest condolences to Steven's family for their tragic loss. May he rest in peace. - Posted by: Colin Simm (Friend) on: Dec 06, 2013
