It is with deep and heavy sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our “Big Steve” in Lakeland, Florida on February 10, 2015 at the young age of 61. Predeceased by parents Stjepan (2006) and Barka (2009). Adoring husband & best friend to wife Jayne for 38 years. Most devoted father and biggest fan to his sons Steven (Lindsay) and Ryan (Kelly). Most dedicated and cherished Dede to his “GGs” Blake and Jack. Brother-in-law to Wayne & Deb Fortin, Leah & Ted Nantais and Paul & Darlene Fortin. Fondly remembered by many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces & nephews, along with countless other friends who were lucky enough to have known him. Steve retired from Daimler Chrysler after working for 35 years. He had two passions in life. First and foremost his family. Second was his undeniable passion for sports, especially softball, and the special bond he had with his team mates from the FOG Devils. Steve touched the lives of so many people with his big smile, kindness and generosity. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Donations to the Ontario Heart and Stroke would be appreciated by the family.
