He immigrated to Canada after the WWII in 1947 and settled in Port Colborne, Ontario where he met the love of his life, Ida, also of Port Colborne. Ida and Steve were married on May 12, 1956. They were blessed with 58 years of marriage filled with love, happiness and many adventures. Steve spent most of his working life at the International Nickle Company (INCO), now Vale Mining Company, and retired after over 40 years of service. During his time at INCO, Steve went back to school at Niagara College to earn his First-Class Power Engineering designation which further advanced his career at INCO. Steve was a dedicated member of the Port Colborne community and celebrated his German heritage as an active member of Club Rheingold. Steve was a long-time committed member of the St. Peter’s Lutheran Church congregation and volunteered his time there when called upon. Steve was an avid gardener and health enthusiast with a keen interest in wholistic medicines. Steve was our go to person for a homeopathic remedy for any given affliction. Steve will be remembered by the positive impact he had on so many lives. Family and friends were always welcome into their home for a glass of his homemade wine, a meal or a warm bed if need be. Steve was everything a Father and Husband and Grandfather (Opa) should be. Loving, caring, helpful, patient and wise are words that come to mind when thinking of Steve. Steve had a wonderful life filled with love, happiness, family, friends, world travel and so many good times. These many fond memories of Steve will live on with those that were lucky enough to know him and have him in their lives. It must be mentioned that Steve had a wonderful sense of humor with a superb gift for comedic timing! The twinkle in his eye and conversational whit will forever be missed by those that knew him. The family would like to thank the staff at Portal Village for all the care, warmth and kindness they showed Steve during his short stay there. Also special thanks to kind staff at Amica Aspen Woods, Revera Scenic Acres and Bethany Calgary Center for all their help, guidance and understanding.
