LINDOP, Stephen Henry

It is with heavy hearts that the family of Stephen Henry Lindop announces his passing on March 28, 2021.

Born in Victoria, British Columbia, on February 20, 1954 to Stuart and Kathleen Lindop, Stephen leaves behind his brother Mark (Ginette), sister Mary-Ellen (Ron), sister Monica (Paul), brother Chris (Laurie-Ann), and brother David (Wendy); his children Adrienne, Ian (Dominique), and Zachary (Nina); and his grandchildren Nora and Emily.

Stephen was a man of action and passionate supporter of his family, friends, and causes to make the world a better place (of which there were many).  As a devoted Christian, Stephen dedicated his life to the ideal of “Service Above All Else”.  True to his nature, Stephen was a fighter to the end. The family finds solace and comfort knowing that he is now reunited with his Creator, whom he served with all of his being while with us.

The family would like to thank the Grey Nuns hospital for caring for Stephen to the best of their abilities for the final 95 days of his life. The family would also like to thank everyone for their love, prayers and support over the past days, weeks, and months, which not only helped us refortify our strength and faith, but which also undoubtedly had a transcendent impact on Stephen as he fought on and ultimately found peace.

A Celebration of Stephen’s Life will be held on Saturday, April 17, 2021 at 1:30 pm. Friends and family may join by virtual attendance by viewing the livestream at To send condolences to the family please contact Serenity Funeral Service.

Derek and I send our deepest condolences to all of Stephens family. I had the privilege of working with Stephen at both Ruverview School in Devon and at Calmar High School. Stephen was a great supporter of my alternative 8/9 Split class in Devon. He accompanied us on many field trips and as such became a great mentor for my students. He will be fondly remembered and sadly missed.

My sincere condolences to all of Stephen’s family and friends. His passing was very sad.
I was a teacher/Assistant Principal in Devon. Although I was at the Robina Baker when Stephen was at Riverview, I still new him.

Devonna Klaassen

On behalf of the Black Gold School Division, our condolences to Stephen’s family. He will be remembered for his contributions to the school division and the community.

Debbie and Edgar Schmidt

One of my earliest memories of Stephen was of a freckle faced young boy smiling over a bowl of Campbell’s soup in a magazine advertisement. As his cousins, living several provinces away, we were pretty impressed by his stardom!
Stephen continued to have a ready smile and adventurous personality throughout his life. We were shocked and saddened to hear of his passing. Our deep condolences and love are extended to the whole Lindop family.

Beth Zazula

To my dear nephew Zachary and his loving family , Nina, Nora and Emily and to all the Lindop family I offer my deepest sympathy and love at this time .

Love, Auntie Beth

Stephen was a man of action, always promoting a new idea to make the world a better place. When we had a chance to visit, he would talk about his family with such pride and love! Our sincere condolences to those who will hold him close in their hearts.

Clint Peevey

During my youth, as a student; I had opportunity to spend many hours in Mr. Lindop’s company. I have and always will view him as a gentleman, well worthy of my deepest respect. I will forever cherish my memories of our conversations, and will continue to try and live up to quality of character he both taught and demonstrated as a principal. I feel truly privileged to have had the chance to get to know him, and wholeheartedly offer his family my condolences as he truly was a great man.

Renee Peevey

Stephen was a funny, kind, generous, inspirational man who truly led by example. Our family had the pleasure of getting to know Stephen when he was Principal at Tofield school.
One of my favourite memories was the first time he joined our family for dinner. After the meal was over the 3 children politely excused themselves to go to their rooms to do their homework. We sat in unbearable silence, until kids were out of earshot, before exploding into laughter! R.I.P. Stephen, remembered always by the Peevey family

Dianne Lehman

I had the pleasure of meeting Stephen twice, many years ago. He struck me as a very genuine, caring person; a gentleman. These are the endearing traits of the Lindop family members I have known over the years.
To each of you, I am very sorry to hear that you have lost your brother, father, grandfather.
Big virtual hugs

Stephen was long time very valuable member of the Nisku-Leduc Rotary Club. His focus was on EDUCATION and one of his memorable expressions was: “If we can teach the girls to read, they will read to their babies and our literacy problems will be solved.”

Andre A Lopez

As I reflect on our relations with Rotary Canada—-I can say that none of this would have been possible without Stephen. I’m not sure/don’t that I remember how Stephen contacted me, but we began a conversation via e-mail and got to appreciate one another as we discussed education and our Club’s efforts to develop a scholarship program. Stephen kept inviting me up to Edmonton to meet his Club and perhaps find a way to synergize our thoughts and efforts, and create something special. Once while in Seattle, my previous home, I took Stephen up on his offer and flew to Edmonton and spent five days as a guest at his home. Of course one thing led to another, Stephen visited Belize and soon Rotary Belize was working with Rotary Edmonton. I can’t remember all the projects we created together, but it has been a very fruitful and long friendship. The last time I saw Stephen was in Lisbon, Portugal at the Rotary International Convention—-Stephen was giving a seminar on how a simple communication can develop into a life changing experience for two Clubs, two countries and two people. Stephen it was a great journey, thank you….

Deepest condolences to the entire Lindop family. Stephen often saw things that were impossible to do at the time and often found ways to make them possible. He will be sadly missed. RIP Stephen.

Katie Hiller

Dear Adrienne (and Ian and Zachary), I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your dad. I know he was great by the things that he did, and what people have written about him, but mostly I know he was great because he had a great kid like you. I hope that the funeral on the 17th brings you all some comfort and is a time of healing. Thinking of you and your whole family.
Mrs. Hiller (JMHS)

Marilyn McMartin

Stephen was a man of action and was admired and respected by all that knew him. He was very proud of his kids and so proud when he got his grandchildren. Hold him in your hearts and know that he will be watching over you. You will each have your own angel on your shoulders . My deepest condolences to all the family.

Ginette and Mark
I was so sorry to see that you have lost a close family member. It is never easy, and even harder at a time when you are unable to gather in person to share stories, laughter and tears. My thoughts are with you.

Peggy Kellogg

I worked with Stephen years ago at OLPH School in Sherwood Park and he taught one of my children while at Jean Vanier School. I was shocked and sad to read of his passing at such a young age. My sincere condolences to all his family members and may he rest in peace.


My sincere condolences to Stephen’s family. I was on a trip to the Netherlands with Stephen several years ago, introducing Eavor to a number of key influencers. Stephen was a true gentleman and a professional in all aspects of the trip. What a pleasure it was to get to know him. He will be missed very much by the Eavor team.

Dawn Arnold

I am so sad to hear about Stephen. I was teaching at Tofield School when he became principal there. He was my favourite of all the principals I had, and I modelled my own administrative style after his.
I remember that he loved to drop into classrooms during the day, chat with the kids, snd by doing this, he became a very approachable person for them.
I had been trying to get the region to do something to the floors in my shop because they were very slippery and unsafe. I was in the classroom portion and saw Stephen walking very fast through the lab toward us. Then all of a sudden, no Stephen. Seconds later, he resumed his trek toward us.
My floors were fixed within a month.
May all of you have peace in knowing that he is with his “favourite guy”, his creator.
