Predeceased by his wife Marie (2005), survived by his daughters, Donna (Wayne Smith) & Shirley (Wayne Holly). Also survived by 5 grandchildren,10 great grandchildren and his niece Nancy Williams (Dave). Dad was very proud to serve Canada in WWII on the HMCS Saint John as a radio signal operator. In 1944 he participated in the infamous Murmansk run, a convoy of 25 warships escorting 28 freighters with food for Russia. He was a member of RCL Branch 24 in St. Catharines for over 70 years. Dad truly enjoyed his amateur radio and all the friends he made and listened to over the years. VE3 BOE is now a silent key. A Memorial Service to celebrate his life will be held at Christ Lutheran Church, 140 Russell Avenue in St. Catharines on Thursday, December 20, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. We would like you to join us for a light lunch and refreshments at the Church following the service.

My deepest condolences to all of Steve's family. Your loss is felt among all of us who knew him. I will miss sitting on the swing and chatting with him. His cottage was a special place which he enjoyed so much. His tales of the war (but not of the ports) were fascinating. His love of life was endless, as was his humour. Thanks for the memories. Farewell for now "Sailor Steve".
