IVERSON, Steven Randall

April 15, 1948 – Minnedosa, Manitoba
February 28, 2019 – Calgary, Alberta

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Steve, beloved Father, Brother and Friend on Thursday, February 28, 2019.
Steve was born in Minnedosa, Manitoba on April 15, 1948, where he maintained close ties throughout his life, always taking the time each week to read the Minnedosa Tribune. After leaving Minnedosa, Steve eventually settled in Calgary and began working for ATB Financial where he met the future mother of his children and his close friend, Donna. The most important people in Steve’s life were his sons, Andy and Stu; he loved taking them to Heritage Park and The Calgary Zoo. Steve fully embraced being a sports parent, attending every hockey, basketball and football game with a passionate engagement. There was nothing Steve enjoyed more than discussing basketball with Stu or football with Andy. Steve was also an avid pool player, besting his son and daughter-in-law up to the week before his passing. Steve will be remembered for his quiet compassion and his deep thoughtful love of his family.
Steve leaves to remember him: his sons, Andy (Stephanie) and Stu (Faye); their Mother and his life long friend Donna, brothers, Alfred (Betty) and Richard (Evelyn); and his nieces and nephews.
Steve was predeceased by his parents, Lois and Amar; and brother, Phillip.
Steve will be privately cremated and his ashes scattered at the Queen’s Park Cemetery in Calgary in the spring.
In lieu of flowers, should one wish, an in-memoriam donation page has been established in support of the Kidney Foundation of Canada.
Condolences may be forwarded through
The family wishes to express their gratitude towards the tremendous care Steve received from the AHS Home Care Team and the personnel at the Intensive Care Services and Hemodialysis Units at the Foothills Medical Centre, especially Dr. Schorr.
In living memory of Steve Iverson, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Chapel of the Bells, 2720 CENTRE STREET NORTH, CALGARY, AB, T2E 2V6, Telephone: 403-243-8200.

  1. I was very sad to hear the news of Steve’s passing. I will always remember the kindness Steve showed me when Andy and I would hang out, and around westside – He was always ready with a hearty hello and was always keen to hear how I was doing. I’ll also never forget how hard the three of us struggled to move his not-quite-empty waterbed one weekend… Andy and I laughed about that many times afterwards. Steve was a warm and kind man, and I will miss him; my thoughts will be with you all during this difficult time. Sending my love

    A Friend is Forever
    Several of Steve’s friends, from our time as youths growing up in the north end of Minnedosa, were shocked and deeply saddened of learning of his passing. Over the past few days we gathered together through emails and telephone conversations and reflected upon our friend, his life with us as young individuals growing up in our prairie town and how we each ventured out to find where our future place was to be and what was important to us. Although I hadn’t spoken with Steve in the past few years I do recall our last few conversations where he told me about his comfort of living in Calgary and having his family near to him. He was very proud of his sons. His family meant everything to him and, as with most of us, nothing else really matters. We know he is at peace with this memory and his family knowing they were all greatly loved by him.
    He was a true friend to all of us who knew and grew up with him in Minnedosa.
    Our sincere condolences to his life long friend Donna, his sons Andy and Stu and their families, and Alf, Betty, Richard and Evelyn.
    Garnet and Sheila Shearer

  3. I too was deeply saddened to hear of Steve’s passing. I share many of the memories that Garnet Shearer mentioned and they are fond memories indeed. Steve was a true friend in every respect of the word – always there to help in any way he could. I sold Steve my treasured 1957 Chevrolet way back when and he cared for that car just as I had, something I always appreciated. Your old Minnedosa buddies loved you Steve and you will be forever missed!! As has been said, Steve’s family meant everything to him – my thoughts and prayers go out to each of you at this difficult time. Sincerest condolences to Donna, sons Andy and Stu and your families and to Alf, Betty, Richard & Evelyn. Sincerely, Wayne McLeod

  4. To my cousins Andrew & Stuart,
    I am wanting to send my sympathy to you for the loss of your dad and my Uncle Steve. I know that it has been many years since we have seen each other but I have always been interested in what you have been busy doing. One of my favourite pictures in our home is that of all the Iverson men taken at Andrew’s pre-wedding supper. It is on a shelf where I have my Saturday morning coffee, so you are thought of weekly! I’m sorry that Uncle Steve had so many health issues these past years, but from all that Dad and Mom have told me he was so proud to have you both as his sons. I wish you both all the best and I hope that our paths will cross someday soon. Thinking of you in sympathy, Your cousin, Joy
