I did not have the pleasure of serving with Steve. However I am sure he held a high standard of respect and friendship amongst his peers. As a former Member of the Signal corp. I am always saddened from one of Canada’s Warriors departure.

I wish his immediate family and all of the people that had him touch their lives to remember the good times and disregard the Bad.

Stand down soldier Your watch is done….

Sincerely;
Retired Sgt Ken Murphy VVV

Rest easy, Warrant. Canadians sleep safely at night because of men and women like you who stood ready to visit violence on those who would harm us.

Thank you for your service sir. I’m deeply sorry for his passing. To his family, you have my deepest sympathy. I am personally affected by PTSD in my family, it is a huge burden to be left with after serving your country so faithfully.

This is profoundly saddening to hear. My sympathies to Bonnie, their children, family, and friends. Steve was a good man, hard worker, and excellent military serviceman. He will be missed.
