February 2, 1948 - February 8, 2022

Following a lengthy battle with cancer, Steve passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his wife and children on February 8, 2022.
He will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by his wife of 52 years, Klara; children, Kathryn (Mark) and Steve (Anne); grandchildren, Maya, Olivia, Alex, and Theo; and his brother Peter (Janice). He was predeceased by his parents, Istvan and Iren Meszaros.
Born in Hungary, his family immigrated to Canada when he was 10. His first love was soccer, but was eventually surpassed by his second love, his high school sweetheart, Klara. After completing several degrees at the University of Manitoba, including a Master of Education, he and Klara raised their children in Powerview where he spent most of his career as Principal of Powerview School. He then spent the final years of his career working as the Principal of Edward Schreyer School in Beausejour. After his retirement, Steve and Klara spent two years in China where they worked and travelled.
Upon their return to Canada, Steve and Klara moved to Winnipeg to be closer to family and spent their leisure time sailing in Gimli, playing pickle ball, and folk dancing.
Steve has touched the lives of many people throughout his life. Known for his smile and friendly demeanor, he was always happy to help, encourage those around him, and share his expertise.
After a lifetime of achievements, adventures, and activities, we know that he will be smiling down on us while he continues his adventures in the afterlife with friends who have passed before him.
As per his wishes, there are no plans for a Celebration of Life.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to CancerCare Manitoba or your favorite charity.
On behalf of Steve, the family would like to thank the nurses and doctors from the WRHA Palliative Care Team and CancerCare Manitoba for their excellent support.

  • Mr. Maszaros was a true gentleman. I had the privilege of attending school with his son Steve Jr., who like his father, always has a smile and sunny disposition. I am so sorry to hear of his passing and offer my sincere condolences to Steve Jr., Mrs Maszaros and family. - Posted by: Anissa Bunn (student - Powerview ) on: Feb 22, 2022

  • Saddened to read of the passing of former colleague Steve. Klara, when we met in the 70s, you and Steve were such a lovely couple, living in Beausejour with your two young children. You, Kathryn and Steve visited to welcome my first born Kari. Many years later, 1997, my second daughter, Ainsley, graduated from ESS. At the grad banquet, I enjoyed a short conversation with Steve, principal of ESS, asking about you and your children. Now I extend my sympathy, Klara, to you, your children and their families. May the wonderful memories you shared as a family in the different communities you lived, each with your own special recollections, help to ease the sorrow you are each experiencing at this time. You are in our thoughts and prayers Sincerely, Karen Hintz - Posted by: Karen Hintz (former colleague) on: Feb 21, 2022
