Steve was a well-respected, self-employed entrepreneur who specialized in carpentry and home renovations. He was well known for his beautiful guitar playing and melodic voice, his music touched the hearts of many.
Steve will be remembered for the loving, kind, generous and accepting soul that he was each day of his life. He lit up every room he entered with a big smile and laughing eyes. His jokes are unforgettable and his wisdom everlasting.
To honor Steve’s wishes there will not be a traditional service but instead a Celebration of Life will be held in early summer with details to follow. Arrangements entrusted to Northwood Funeral Home Cremation and Reception Centre (942 Great Northern Rd, 705-945-7758). www.northwoodfuneral.com
