It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Steve Eveleigh, at the age of 73, on December 5, 2021 at Boundary Trails Health Centre.
Steve was loved and will be missed by his wife, Judi, his children and stepchildren, brother, foster family, friends and fellow volunteers.
Originally born in Buchans, Newfoundland, Steve later moved to Nova Scotia at the age of four, lovingly fostered and raised by Hazel Kennedy and family. At the age of 15, he moved to Manitoba where he created a life full of memories, including starting a family, riding his motorcycles and giving back to the communities he lived in. Steve gave countless hours volunteering at the Red Cross blood donor clinics, becoming high a miler raising thousands of dollars in funds for Ride for Site and participating with the Children’s Toy Runs. In 1997, Steve met Judi and together they continued supporting the Ride for Site from coast to coast, then having countless other adventures together, side by side, for the next almost 25 years, until he suddenly lost his battle with lung cancer.
As per Steve’s wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be no formal service at this time. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Steve’s memory to the Canadian Lung Cancer Association.
