On January 19, 2012, beloved husband, father and grandfather went home to be with Jesus after a thankfully brief battle with renal cancer. Steve was a longtime Port Coquitlam resident, and most recently, was living in Oliver, BC. He spent the majority of his career teaching Junior High School in Coquitlam. Steve was a man of service, both to God and to his fellow man. Most recently, he was the President of the Okanagan Gleaners. Steve is survived by his wife, Betty-Jo; sons Eric (Kimberley), Brock (Mary); granddaughters, Abigail and Ainsley; brother, Eugene (Bonnie), and sister Jill.
He was a gifted educator, man of faith and volunteer with the Okanagan Gleaners in Oliver, B.C. He will be truly missed by family and friends.
