Steven Richard Utungan Phillips, aged 36, passed away tragically on Friday, March 11, 2022.
Steven was born to Rick and Elmira “Almara” Phillips on May 27, 1985, in Inuvik, NT. He was a loving husband, father, stepfather, brother, son, uncle, and friend. He blessed this world with a beautiful baby girl Shelby Phillips (Smiley). She was the light of his life and filled his soul with love, grace, and understanding.
Steve’s appetite for all things mechanical led him to a career in heavy-duty mechanics. He passionately worked each day with Tombstone Heavy-Duty; often the first to arrive and the last to leave each day. Six years ago, he found his happily ever after with Casandra Andruik and her two amazing children, Tegan, and Shane O’Donnell. They quickly added a beautiful puppy Axel to their household and from that day forward Axel was always at his side. This blended family hastily became his reason for living. Steve will be deeply missed by his friends, family, and all who knew him.
He is pre-deceased by his adoring mother, Elmira “Almira”; Grandmother, Linda, & Grandfather, Albert “Bus”.
He is survived by his loving wife Casandra; children Shelby, Tegan, & Shane; Father, Rick; brothers, Ricky (Jenny, Emma, & Alyssa), & Jody (Dawn); sisters, Patricia (Mariah, Annabelle, Teegan, Aaliyah, & Logan), Shannon (Jacob), & Kimberly (Trinity) as well as numerous friends and extended family.
A celebration of life will be held at 11:00 am on Wednesday, March 23, 2022, at the Fort Saskatchewan Royal Canadian Legion in the Normandy Room.
