Passed away peacefully, after a brief illness, with his family by his side, at Lisaard House in Cambridge, Ontario on Wednesday, January 2, 2019 at the age of 68 years. Survived by his wife of 43 years, Dagmar Lutzi, his daughters Melissa (Harvey), Stephanie (Kevin), and his cherished grandchildren, Erik, Scarlett and Molly. Predeceased by his mother Frances Andrasaska. Steve loved to travel with Dagmar and his family, from Europe to Hawaii, soaking up the sun when he could and always enjoying the local cuisine, which he would incorporate into the family meals he planned at home. Steve loved to socialize with the friends and neighbours he and Dagmar made over the years. Christmas parties, bridge nights and meetings of their wine club were always anticipated. After becoming a grandfather, Steve loved nothing more than to spend time with his grandchildren, whether watching movies with Scarlett or taking Erik to golf. The moment Molly was born, it was clear to all that she had inherited his kind eyes, and he always brought a smile to her face. Because of his love for his grandchildren, in the last few years of his life, no exotic locale could compare to a trip to Disney World in Florida.
The family would like to extend their gratitude to the staff and volunteers at Lisaard House in Cambridge, Ontario for making the final weeks of Steve's life comfortable, and allowing for a few last wonderful memories to be made.
Friends are invited to share their memories of Steve with his family and celebrate his life during a memorial reception at the Erb & Good Family Funeral Home, 171 King St. S., Waterloo, on Family Day, Monday, February 18, 2019 from 5-9 p.m. Cremation has taken place.
