Steven Frank Smith

October 8, 1958 – April 14, 2016

After battling cancer for the past six years, Steve took the hand of the Angel, and passed peacefully with dignity and his loving wife at his side, April 14, 2016 at the Red Deer Hospice Centre.

Steve was born October 8, 1958 in Ponoka, AB to Frank and Dorothy Smith. He resided with his family and completed his education in Ponoka until he married his wife Cyndie Hermary, July 11, 1987. They purchased their first home in the Village of Clive, where they enjoyed raising their four children; Dana of Stettler, Candace (Sandy) of Bentley, Stephanie (Shantel) of Wetaskiwin, and Brandon (Holly) of Clive. In 2008 Steve and Cyndie built their new home in the country North East of Clive. Steve loved the country lifestyle surrounded by wildlife and tranquility of nature. He enjoyed chain sawing and building “extreme” bon fires for family and friends. Steve was very passionate about his Grandchildren; Paul, Izaak, Dredan, Dylen, Sylaz, Cerenity, Lazarus, Saul, and little Emily. He loved to have their help with firewood, tell them stories, and do outside activities.

Steve was an ambitious man, always striving for excellence. He was employed in the pipeline industry as a superintendent, foreman, and side boom operator. Through his employment he created a large network of close friends, sharing his knowledge, skills, stories and his wonderful sense of humor.

One of Steve’s most cherished memories was a private fishing trip with his wife, where Steve caught a 120-pound Marlin in Mexico. He enjoyed long drives in the country listening to his favorite music, riding his tractor, spending time with his wife, children, grandchildren, family and all of the friends that touched his life along the way!

Steve will live on through memories of the loved ones he leaves behind. He will be fondly remembered, sadly missed, but not forgotten!

A celebration of Steve’s Life will be held at the Clive Baptist Church, April 22, 2016 at 1:00pm. Refreshments to follow.
