DUCSAI, Steve Gabor

July 3, 1970– April 18, 2013

Steve Gabor Ducsai, beloved son, brother, uncle and friend, passed away in the loving arms of his best friend Gina Berman on April 18th, 2013 at the age of 42. Born in Simcoe Ontario on July 3rd 1970, he is survived by his loving mother Valerie Ardo and step father George Ardo. He was a protective big brother to Szilvia Schaaf (Darren), Nicholette Ardo, Krisztina Douglas (Don) and Zoltan Ardo. Loving uncle to Makayla, Kohen, Kade, Dante, Kairo, Ziara, and Kyra. He was a best friend of Gina Berman and a dear friend to Dale Langley. Steve was survived by his grandmother Maria, also numerous uncles, aunts, and cousins throughout Canada and Hungary. He was predeceased by his father Joseph.

Steve was truly a larger than life character, he will be remembered by many for his energetic smile and entertaining sense of humour. He graduated from Bishop Grandin High School. He was a leader on the high school football team, then moved on to play semi pro football for the Florida Stingrays. He moved back to Calgary to be one of the founders and captain of the Calgary Thunder Football team. His passion for people had him employed by such places as Calgary Cash Casino, Tasmanian Ballroom, Ranchmans, and NV Nightclub. His drive for success and unrelenting handwork led him to be a manager and part owner of the Tasmanian Ballroom where he was known by the city as “Even Steven”.

With a real zest for life Steve was an all around athlete who succeeded at anything he set his mind to. To list a few, he was the greatest fisherman, a scuba diver, a dancer, a self proclaimed rapper, a dog lover, and it was a great honour for him to be chosen to be a part of the Hungarian Bobsled team.

Steve stood out amongst many for his infectious gregarious personality. He loved his family and friends and always had a way to make everyone he met feel welcomed into his life. With his strong will to live and the love and care of many supporters throughout the past 12 years, our family is deeply grateful for the outpouring of love, prayers, and support in many heart felt forms. With too many people to name individually we would like to thank everyone who touched Steve’s life. Special thanks to Dr. Christine Grabenstetter, all the staff at A.R.B.I. (Tony), staff at Inglewood House (Brandy, Karen, Helena, and Saba), staff at the Nickel House (Jani). All the doctors and nurses who provided countless hours of care and support; on behalf of Steve “Thanks dude!”.

  2. Very sorry to hear about Steve passing away. In the short time we played together we became close and I really enjoyed his friendship. Steve was full of life and he was always surrounded by friends. I didn’t see him much after I moved to Ontario but thought of him often.
