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.
