STEPHEN KENNETH KUZDUB
November 9, 1956 - August 18, 2021
Stephen was predeceased by his father, Kazimierz (Kaz) Kuzdub, and leaves behind to cherish his memory, his wife of 35 years who was the love of his life, Monique Freynet, his mother Audrey Kuzdub, his sons, Christian (Tamara) and Justin, his grandchildren, Ocean and Soleil, his brothers and sister and in-laws, as well as many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews, and numerous friends and coworkers at Best Windows.
Steve was a man of many talents and remarkable creativity. He brought new life to many an older home and was an avid gardener. He gladly helped family, friends and neighbours alike with great skill, generosity, humility and kindness. He was a rock for our family and was always there for us when we needed him. Steve loved to converse, looking at a subject from all angles, while teasing and provoking hours of discussion and banter. He was always interested in our lives and knew how to ask great questions. His sense of humour and booming laugh were much appreciated by all. Steve was an absolute radiant presence full of joy, wisdom, and love. He will be sorely missed.
A private Celebration of Life will soon be held in his honour.

Condolences & Memories (6 entries)
I am so sorry to hear of Steve's untimely passing. I haven't seen him since I was a child but he is a regular figure in my childhood memories. He had a kind spirit and an incredible and infectious laugh, one of my all-time favourites in fact. Most importantly, even as a child you could tell what a caring and kind man he was...he just emanated goodness. Sending my love to Monique and his family. (Mes plus sincères condoléances). I hope you feel surrounded by love as you reflect on your cherished memories together. Rest in Peace Steve. - Posted by: Michelle Sousa (daughter of friend) on: Sep 03, 2021

What a shock to read this morning that Steve has passed away. I really loved Steve since we first met. I always enjoyed our good conversations, our times together. I really admired and appreciated his great skills of fixing or building anything. A kind and generous good man with a deep sense of family which he loved beyond everything. I’ll always remember his smile and his laughter. My sincere condolences to the Kuzdub family et à Monique, les enfants et petits-enfants ainsi qu’à la grande famille Freynet. - Posted by: Jacques Lafrance (Friend) on: Aug 30, 2021
I was very saddened to learn of Steve's passing. I met Steve in 1975 through his brother Brian. Many years have passed since I last saw Steve but I never forgot our conversations or the laughs we shared. Steve was a pillar and always offer sound advice. One time there was a party planned at Steve's house on Picardy. Brian had asked me to come early to help set up. I remember Mrs. Kuzdub was there and had asked to Steve to open the back window as the house was hot. Steve went up to the window, grabbed it with both hands at the bottom and was trying to pull it upwards but it was stuck. He kept pulling and you could see the window wasn't opening easily. Just as the window flew open I yelled, "Hey Brian... you're ape is getting away"! I remember how hard we all laughed. I wish to offer our heartfelt condolences to Steve's immediate, extended family and friends during this difficult time. Rest In Peace Steve. - Posted by: Jim Levesque ( friend) on: Aug 28, 2021
Stephen was my friend for many years growing up in the North End of Winnipeg. We went on many adventures and played a lot of winter road hockey in the lane behind our house. Unfortunately we fell out of touch with each other after high school. Stephen (or “Kuzdub” as we all called him) was a good guy. My condolences to his family and friends. - Posted by: Bob Guse (Friend from school days) on: Aug 28, 2021
