    Our thoughts are with you and your family at this difficult time. We remember when Steven coached our youngest son in basketball and always thought highly of him. He was a good coach , and we could tell, a good father and husband. We know those traits will live on in his children.

    Dear Maija and Family,

    My heart goes out to you for the loss of your best friend, husband and Father. In reading all the other condolences it looks like Steven always had that smile on his face and great sense of humour just like I remember. I was shocked to hear about your loss, and it hurts to know that you and your children are suffering. May you find the strength you need by turning to Jehovah. Allow Him to carry you in this time of distress. I wish I was there to give you a hug and say a good bye to Steven.

    Our sincere condolences to family and friends. So sorry to hear of your loss! Steve, Westty and crew built our fence and deck in Langdon this spring and then a couple of our neighbors as well. He was a great pleasure to deal with as a businessman and his skill and passion for the trade was very evident in everything he did. Not only were we thrilled with the completed work, we really enjoyed the company of Steve, Westty and the crew during their time on the job. Steve will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

    My sincere condolences, I am very sad to hear of such a deep loss, Steve was a truly remarkable individual. Although I did not know him for very long, he proved to be one of my greatest mentors for coaching lacrosse. I had the pleasure of working with him for only one short season as an assistant coach but what he taught me about the sport, coaching, leadership, respect, humility, and teamwork will no doubt carry me through not only the rest of my lacrosse career, but also for many years afterward. I am lucky to say that I knew and had the pleasure of working with him. My thoughts go out to everyone who knew him, but especially his family in such a difficult and tragic time.

    I am in shock since I heard last night. Steve was a brother to me growing up. I will never forget him and the crazy laughs we all had. I haven’t been around in years, but I never forgot the both of you.

    keep your head up. Keep smiling cause that’s what he would want.

    sincerely,
