Obituary of Steve Smith

On the evening of December 24, 2020 Steve Smith went to heaven to be with his Mom Mavis. Steve was born August 21,1970 in Duncan, BC to Mavis and Barry Smith (now of Chetwynd, BC), he loved them beyond compare. Steve is survived by his loving wife Rhonda "Sweetie", son Koby, and daughter Haley "Muriel" (Dillion); his father Barry, brother Wayne (Connie) Smith, brother Ken (Lillian) Smith; his father and mother in-law Ken and Val Gerbrandt; brothers & sisters in law Dale(Rhonda) Gerbrandt, Lisa(Gene) Wesley and Bev Smith. He is also missed dearly by numerous nieces and nephews, extended family and many friends. Steve dedicated his life and love to his soulmate Rhonda and children Haley and Koby. All the good times included road trips, camping, travelling to other countries, kayaking, concerts/music festivals galore. A highlight of their travels was when he got to see the Grand Canyon. Steve enjoyed his career as a Journeyman Welder and Heavy Duty Mechanic and was very good at it. He had always hoped to go back to work. Steve enjoyed spending hours on end working on projects in his garage with family and friends, he was always willing to lend a hand at the drop of a hat. He always had a positive attitude even when not feeling his best and could find humour in the toughest times. We are going to miss those smiling eyes and that laugh! Steve loved anything to do with the outdoors. He grew up learning how to trap, hunt, and fish from his Dad, brothers and uncles. He learned how to be a survivor, which showed through his strength and courage during his illness. We want to give a special thanks to the UofA hospital ICU team that gave Steve such great care in his final hours. We also want to give a heartfelt thankyou to unit 3G2 and 5B1 for the years of caring for Steve like he was family. Steve left this world surrounded by family. A celebration of life will happen at a later date. Cremation has taken place. These were Steve's final wishes.
