    We regret to advise of the death of Steve Passmen on 19 November 2016 at the Eagle Ridge Hospital in Port Moody, BC. Formerly a resident of RJ Kent Residences in Port Coquitlam, BC Steve was a WW II veteran.

    Steve was born in 1923 and raised on farms near Assiniboia and Hudson Bay, SK.  He enlisted for World War II in the Royal Canadian Engineers in Regina, SK in 1942 and served overseas until 1946 in France and Germany. After his return to Canada and demobilisation, Steve worked as a heavy equipment operator, foreman and member of the International Union of Operating Engineers. He worked on road and other construction projects in Goose Bay NL, Revelstoke BC, Vietnam, Couer D'Alene, Idaho, and on the Alaska Pipeline.

    In retirement, Steve built a waterfront home in Anacortes, Washington. After the passing of his wife, he moved to Green Valley, Arizona for the warmer climate and great golfing. In 2012 he returned to the Lower Mainland of British Columbia to be close to family. He was a resident of RJ Kent Residences in Port Coquitlam for the past two years.

    A celebration of Life will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 133 at 2675 Shaughnessy St, Port Coquitlam, BC on the afternoon of 28 January 2017.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Lung Association of your choice. Online Condolences can be sent to {khJan2017}
