"To you Steve, peace and love. Peace is what I believe you now have and love because it will always be there. Healing is a journey, so is life and relationships.
See what journey our daughters have travelled? So proud of them.
Thank you for all the help you have assist me with and keep at it because I still need it.

"J'ai rencontré Steve à quelques reprises et à chaque fois j'ai trouvé qu'il avait un bel humour, un calme divin et qu'il aimait profondément Josée, Marina et Chanelle.  Il avait un petit air «british» à la James Bond et un sourire d'enfer.  J'ai adoré discuter avec lui, il avait une grande intelligence et une grande perspicacité. Il a donné ce qu'il avait de meilleur à son entourage et ce malgré les hauts et les bas de notre complexe existence. Je souhaite beaucoup de courage et d'amour  à Josée, Marina et Chanelle dans cette difficile épreuve de la vie.  Je vous aime profondément :-) Maryse X0X0X0"

"Way back when in grade school and high school at Lower Canada College in Montreal and then in mechanical engineering at McGill University, Steve was much less the quiet and reserved man he matured into. He gave a most hilarious speech as the best man at my wedding and was known for being the most erudite engineer at McGill, regularly contributing to the engineers' magazine the funniest and most provocative articles such that all the English majors across campus flocked to read them when the magazine was released. Steve was an excellent defenceman and we played together at LCC and for the engineering team at McGill. My memories include: playing guitars around the campfires at Bark Lake in Quebec's Laurentiens serenading the wildlife; Steve water skiing on those long legs, cigarette in hand, albeit a bit wet; solving life's issues over a beer or two at the Mansfield tavern near McGill; and studying like mad to get through engineering while leading a balanced social life. I will miss my friend although geography and busy lives recently kept us apart.  
He was always a gentleman and a caring and thoughtful friend. His legacy lives on through his daughters and loving wife."

"I was very saddened to learn of Steve's passing. I met Steve when he joined Sidock Group. The time we had together was limited as I retired in March, 2013. Steve was a true professional and a gentleman. Being of similar age we had a lot to discuss and also being from England added to our discussions. I enjoyed the short time we had together. He will be missed but so pleased to have made his acquaintance. My thoughts are with you, his family."

"Talentueux, réservé, un cœur d'amour pour son épouse et ses deux filles, Marina et Chanelle. Steve était un homme introverti, intelligent, gentil et doux. Soucieux de la réussite de chacun et attentionné. Un homme droit et compatissant que j'ai eu le privilège de connaître. Mes sincères condoléances!"

"Quiet yet comical, Steve was a kind, sweet man.  Good to his family and nieghbors.  He will be greatly missed but always with all three of his girls."

This tribute was added by Janet Sisk on 7th May 2014

"I only met Steve a few times, but I do know that he loved his family.  I work with his wife, Josee, and remember him coming to see our students perform in the school musical.  It meant a lot to her for him to attend.  I pray that his family will be comforted during this difficult time.  Hugs being sent."

"Steve was a quiet and reserved man, so I didn't get to know him very well, but he taught my son how to change a tire and I think they both benefited from that lesson. I imagine Steve enjoyed teaching and I know that Cooper appreciated the learning. I am so sorry that he won't be giving any more life lessons to kids, especially his own. I pray that other people will be as giving toward Chanelle and Marina and will share life lessons with them as Steve did for Cooper."
