Condolences & Memories (7 entries)

  • So sad to hear of Steve's passing. Met and worked with Steve at the Winnipeg Taxation Centre back in the 1980s. Popeye Doyle, as I used to call him, and I hit it off when we first met. Easy going and great guy to talk too. We had so many many laughs over the years when we worked together. A good run but gone too soon. Rest in peace my friend.

  • I send my deepest condolences to my dearest childhood friend Lynn and her family. Steve was a special guy and I have known him since we were all in our teens. What great memories we shared! Steve was always quiet but witty, kind and caring with everyone he met. As soon as Steve met Lynn, she was the apple of his eye. They were young and fell madly in love. I was honoured to be Steve and Lynn's Maid of Honour and we remained lifelong family friends. He will be sadly missed. Sending much love and sympathy to Lynn, Jeff, Derrick and Cindy & their families during this sad loss. - Posted by: Maureen Taylor (Longtime Family Friend) on: Jul 19, 2022

  • I am so sorry to hear that Steve passed away. My sincere condolences to his family. I worked with Steve at the WTC, and he was extremely proud of his children and grandkids. He always spoke about his family with deep affection. He was so witty and always had a smile when I walked by his desk. He will be missed! - Posted by: Franca Caligiuri (Co-worker) on: Jul 18, 2022

  • I am very sorry to learn that Steve passed away. My condolences to his family and friends. We worked together for a few years and I always thought very highly of him. He was a great guy, generous, witty and kind. - Posted by: Lynn Prosak (Coworker ) on: Jul 17, 2022

  • I have known Steve my entire adult life since his wedding to my 'cousin' Lynn in 1974. Steve and I would see each other at all the 'family events'...the Christmas times, the 'Turkey Bowl' Thanksgivings, weddings, births and the passings. With Steve's passing I thought of who he was to me. As a musician of sorts, I thought of the bass player in the band. Oh there are those who may take the mike and solo or play a fancy lick on the guitar...but when you know music you know that it's the bass player who is truly important. Always there, keeping the beat, the tempo, holding everyone together. Ask any musician and they will tell you: Without the's just not the same band. So it was with the Steve I knew. Not unlike my Uncle Gord, Steve's Father-in-law, Steve was that quiet man who always had a warm smile, a kind word, a gentle thought...and if you listened close just a little nudge to get you laughing. All those important things in life that keep the music playing in all our hearts... From my family to all of those who love Steve and hold him dear, our condolences and warmest thoughts.

  • I met Steven when we worked at Coca-Cola in the 70's. We met again at the WTC, in the 90's. He was always very friendly and cordial whenever we would talk about the "old times". Rest in Peace Steven. - Posted by: Marcia Ginter (co-worker) on: Jul 16, 2022
