Terry Steeves



1949 – 2020


It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Terry Steeves, beloved father, grandfather, brother, friend and neighbor. Terry passed away at his home near Bashaw, AB at the age of 70.Terry’s memory will be cherished by his children, Chris (Patty) and Tara (James) and the light of his life, his grandchildren, Carter, Ainsley, Gracie, Declan and Emersyn. As well as his brothers, Tom (Marlene) and Tim and sister, Hiadee (Ray) and numerous nieces and nephews.

Terry was born in Moncton, NB on July 22, 1949 to Althea and Clarke Steeves. At the age of 18, Terry joined the RCMP and found himself posted to Alberta where he served at many posts proudly for nearly 29 years, retiring in 1998. An avid sportsman, Terry enjoyed playing and coaching hockey and baseball, hunting and camping.

Terry grew to love the country life and ranching which lead him to his “piece of heaven” in 1993. His love for the land and ranching was evident in how he lived. He took pride in being a good friend and neighbor and his handshake was his word.

Terry’s truest joy was his family especially his grandchildren whose pictures he displays proudly, even in his truck. He will be deeply missed by his family, friends and everyone who knew him.

Wow, what a shocker this was to hear of Terry passing. We spent sometime together in Lethbridge and I considered him to be a friend.

Sorry I missed his celebration of life but didn’t hear of his passing until yesterday.

He was quite the man and I sure enjoyed being around him

Rest In Peace my friend.

Condolences from one of the East Coast cousins. I remember the moustache in particular….it was an impressive sight and everyone was so proud to see him go off to be a “Mountie”….the first one to do so in our family as far as I know. My memories are few due to the age gap but I do know they are fond and I extend my sincere sympathies to all of Terry’s family.

Sincere condolences to Terry’s family and friends. I was privileged to work with Terry both on the watch in Red Deer and on the Emergency Response Team, he was a fearless team mate. He was so much fun to hang around with, keeping up with him was impossible in all he did. He was a character on the golf course, golfing was always secondary to the fun at hand. RIP my friend.
