The Chronicle Herald, Halifax, May 11, 2010
Steve Andrews
slipped away as gently and peacefully as he had lived his life on Monday, May 10, 2010, at home with his sons and the family members he cherished most with him. Born in Corner Brook, NL on May 28, 1954, Steve was a very proud and caring father to "his boys" Matthew and Jay of Halifax. His family was his rock, ensuring his last months were spent in love and comfort. He will always be missed by his sisters and brothers, Shirley and Dale Blair of Tantallon; Wendy Bedingfield and Brenda Robertson of Gaspereau Valley; David and Sharon Andrews of St. John's NL; and Dick and Becky Andrews, British Columbia. He leaves to mourn him "the girls", nieces, Alexandra Blair (William Severino), Atlanta, Ga; Krista Blair (Tony Chalmers), Nottingham, England; Caroline Blair-Smith (Malcolm Smith), Tantallon; and Rachael Bedingfield (Ueli Albert), Gaspereau Valley; "little David" Andrews, St. John's; Morgan and Wesley Andrews, British Columbia. Special to Steve were his great-nephews, Peter and Jeffrey Smith, Oliver Albert, Nicholas Severino and Conor Chalmers; and great-niece Sophia Severino. He leaves behind Marsha Pond, mother of his boys; his aunts, Ruth Klevorick and Annie Andrews; special cousins, Bob Andrews, Karolyn Genge and Sean Tavenor. He was predeceased by his mother, Barbara; father Wesley K. Andrews; and by his uncle Bert and Uncle Gordon Andrews. His remaining family and friends in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland live in remembering how Steve loved to sail, to ski and coach soccer with the boys, to participate in and later to organize Scouts, to "strategically place" rocks in Shirley and Dale's garden and to make drinkable wine enjoyed by the old neighbourhood. He cheered at Matt's football and baseball games; enjoyed Jay's drumming competitions and relished lobster and sailing weekends in Baddeck. He built beautiful stain glass and shared it with those he loved. He was a volunteer for Feed Nova Scotia and Habitat for Humanity. The family thanks the Capital Health Palliative Care Team for helping Steve fulfill his wish of staying at home and VON nurses, especially Debbie Townsend and Geralyn MacDonald. Donations in Steve's memory should be made to Feed Nova Scotia or the Victorian Order of Nurses. He has been cremated.
