February 1, 1966 – Cold Lake, Alberta
July 6, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Steve Kostyk on Friday, July 6, 2018 at the age of 52 years.

Steve was born in Cold Lake, AB and grew up in Comox, BC loving the outdoors and camping every chance he could. Steve moved to Calgary in 1997 where he worked at Calgary Coop as a meat cutter and eventually owing his own Landscaping company.

Steve was an avid cyclist as he would say “before it was cool to wear the cycling shorts”. Just some of his proudest achievements were the races he entered and proudly shared with family and friends. He entered the Mount Washington Cycling race in BC which his parents and Aunt cheered him on to the finish. He loved to read and immerse himself in knowledge. He was admired for his ability to build and fix anything. He loved the time he shared with his parents in the BC sun working on cars with Ed and long walks with Isabelle.

There was nothing he would not do to help his family and friends. It was with one glance and a simple hello that Steve and Val remained in each others lives for 19 years. They shared a deep love for their family “The girls” Maddie and Ceili. Enjoying every hike, snowshoe and walk with them.

He will be remembered and loved everyday by wife Valerie Kostyk, parents Edward and Isabelle Kostyk; and sister Tracy Ricard (Denis).

What an honor it was to have met Steve! He was so much fun to work with. Always smiling and friendly. He had this work ethic like you wouldn’t believe. Now you’re up at 30 000 feet cruising altitude watching over everyone. My condolences to the kostyk family.
