Steve Alex Lister

March 16, 1960 - June 28, 2014


Steve passed away on June 28, 2014 in Powell River, at the age of 54. We are full of sorrow because we have lost him, but our hearts are full of a love for Steve that is much greater and stronger than sadness.

Steve was born in Powell River on March 16, 1960 to Joan and Robert (Al) Lister and grew up on Vancouver Island and in Powell River.

“Generous” is a word that describes Steve. He was generous in spirit and character. Not only was he good-natured, fun to be around, considerate and funny, but he also enjoyed and was also known for giving thoughtful gifts to those around him. Steve was also giving of his time and often offered to help people with projects or errands. This kindness was returned to him; many people in the community did special and considerate things for Steve.

In his working life, Steve possessed many skills and abilities and used them to work a variety of professions, including deckhand, chokerman, mechanic, forklift operator, masonry, courier and self-employed handyman. Steve had a multitude of interests and hobbies that added to his enjoyment of life, including repairing and riding motorcycles and performance cars, collecting, travelling, filming and editing videos, playing guitar, and amassing an absolutely amazing music collection. Steve really enjoyed spending time with family, friends and pets in his home, which was a place where everyone felt comfortable and welcome.

Steve is survived by his mother (Joan) and siblings Louise (Glenn), Lorraine (Barry), Phillip (Denise) and Carrie (Garnett) and was predeceased by his father (Al). Steve is also survived by his nieces and nephews who all adore and love him: Tina, Robin, Dana, Laura, Leah, Alana, Danielle, Stefan, as well as his great-nieces and nephews.

A special thank you to Steve’s friends for helping and supporting him in his last years.

 Steve, we will all keep you forever in our hearts.

Life is…

The flash of a Firefly in the night…
It’s the breath of a Buffalo in the winter air…
It’s the little shadow that runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset…
It’s wishing you a safe journey Steve, till we meet again…

Love you forever!
Ride Free My Friend!
