It is with great sadness that the family announces the death of John Mariner Steeves on October 8, 2020 at the Saint John Regional Hospital. He was the son of the late Wendell and Winnie May Steeves.
He will be sorely missed by his wife Donna and his children Daniel (Dawn) Evans of NB, Megan (Colin McManus) Evans of AB, Kelly (Shawn) Riopelle of BC, Gavin Steeves and Jordan Steeves both of Quebec, granddaughter Arianna Evans of NB and brother Allan (Sheila) Steeves of Ontario. He was predeceased by brothers Ross (Judie) Steeves and Glendon (Persis) Steeves.
A consummate storyteller, his career was in journalism which he performed across the country from Whitehorse to St. John's. In his retirement, his passion was duplicate bridge. He and Donna traveled the Atlantic Provinces playing bridge tournaments, sightseeing and discovering. His funny anecdotes and bridge lessons will be missed by extended family and friends.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Wallace Funeral Home, Sussex. As no formal service can be scheduled due to Covid-19, condolences can be made through WallaceFuneralHome.com
