LOVENUIK, STEVE
Pa, a master builder of family, Friendships, and structures, passed away peacefully at home, on Wednesday, July 4, 2007. Steve's passion for living life fully and sharing that passion made him unforgettable to all that he met. He was a positive force in many lives, especially his family of 8 children, 17 grandchildren, and to Dorothy, his loving wife of 51 years. Steve is survived by Dorothy; children and grandchildren, Jeff (Cheryl), Anna, Calvin LOVENUIK of Calgary, Laurie (Perry,) Kyle, Kurtis, Michael NISHIYAMA of Edmonton, Donna (John,) Alyson, Veronica, Paula ROONEY of Calgary, Pat (Dale,) Kara, Ben, Mallory KNELLER of Durango, Colorado, Stephen LOVENUIK of Revelstoke, British Columbia, Mary (Gord,) Krysia, Ross, Reid FERGUSON of Calgary, Margaret (Joe) Sofia SCHLIESSLER of Vancouver, British Columbia, and Monica (Dave,) Declan, Brendan GAINER of Redmond, Washington; sisters, Mary (Joe) HOOVER, Elise (Chris) DEMUYNCK, Margaret GELINAS, and brother Al (Heather) LOVENUIK. Steve was born in Smoky Lake in 1934, the son of Anna and Nicholas LOVENUIK. He grew up in Coal Valley. Steve was respected as an owner of a successful construction business in Edmonton. Over many years he was responsible for the construction of several hundred buildings in the area. Steve was forever working to help those he loved. Throughout his life he was always aware of the needs of his growing family and made everyone happy. He gave us a great sense of family that we all possess now - that legacy lives on. He loved to see his family gathered around the dining room table for a feast prepared by Dorothy and to hold everyone captive until he recited his Italian, or Polish, or Latin version of Grace. Like Louis Armstrong sang, Steve lived in 'A Wonderful World'. We will miss him at track meets, recitals, athletic races, golf games, ski hills, volleyball games, dance competitions and soccer games. He was an avid spectator and Number One Fan of his children and his grandchildren's endeavors. We would like to thank Doctor Helen Hays for her kind and caring support and efforts to help make Pa comfortable in his final week. Prayers on Monday, July 9, 2007 at 7: 00 p.m., Hainstock's Funeral Home 9810-34th Ave, Edmonton. Funeral Services on Tuesday, July 10, 2007 at 11: 00 a.m., Saint Thomas More Catholic Parish, 210 Haddow Close (23rd avenue and Terwillegar Drive), with interment at Rosehill Cemetery, Edmonton.
