Walsh, Steven JosephMonday, 20 Apr 2015
Steven Joseph Walsh died peacefully in his sleep in Kamloops, B.C.
on April 20th, 2015 at
the age of 72.
Steve is survived by his children Tammy, Wendy and Steve, his sisters Gen, Mary, Ann, Betty and Nellie, and his brother John. Steve is also survived by his grandchildren Shane and Mistie and his great-grandson Aiden. He is preceded in death by his first wife Lorna and his second wife Jan.
Steve was born on May 5, 1942 in Gambo, Newfoundland to Jack and Josephine. He moved to Thompson in 1964 where he met his wife Lorna. Steve and Lorna welcomed three children into their lives. Years later they decided to move west to provide a better life for his family, so in 1976 they packed up and moved to Fort McMurray where he got a job as a shovel operator. Steve worked at Suncor until his retirement in 2002 when he moved to Kamloops.
Steve was an accomplished guitar player and singer. He enjoyed participating in, and later on, running the karaoke night at The Eagles in Kamloops. Steve was a sports fanatic, particularly Hockey and Baseball. If he wasn’t listening to music, you could bet he was watching sports on TV or attending a game. He was also an avid bowler and enjoyed fishing in the summer.
A celebration of his life will be held at the Fraternal Order of Eagles at 755 Tranquille Rd on Saturday, April 25, at 9:30 am. All are welcome to attend and help us celebrate his life. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to The Heart and Stroke Foundation, The Canadian Diabetes Association or the Kidney Foundation of Canada in Steve’s memory.
