Stephen will also be forever remembered by his Father Ron (Nancy), and siblings Carol, Debbie, Janie, Pam, Tom, Ron, and Kelly. Stephen was predeceased by his mother Gloria, his brother Terry and sister Patty.
Stephen was known for his quick wit, work ethic, love of history, travel and sports. In his early years, Stephen played hockey and baseball and actively participated in his children’s sports either through coaching or supporting from the sidelines. Later in life, Stephen enjoyed travelling with his wife, Deborah, sailing and curling competitively and he always attended his grandchildren’s sporting activities. He dedicated over 22 years of service to the Canadian Border Service Agency as a Border Service Officer and made many friendships and connections that were long-lasting.
