Obituary of Kevin MacDonald Steele
Cleveland, Nova Scotia - Calgary, Alberta
It is with deep love and wonderful memories, that the family of Kevin MacDonald Steele wish to share of his peaceful passing at home in Calgary on Monday, June 27, 2022, at the age of 67 years.
Kevin was born in Cleveland, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia to parents Roderick and Charlotte (nee MacDonald). At an early age, he became an avid reader with a thirst for knowledge and a passion for history, especially World War II, which spanned his entire life. His quick wit was sure to illicit a chuckle, albeit sometimes solely his own. Kevin’s proudest achievement was raising a family alongside his best friend and wife, Grace, instilling values of empathy and kindness through the way he lived his life.
Kevin will be deeply missed by his loving wife Grace (nee MacSween), son Glenn (Alison) and daughter Katherine; brothers Paul (Lise), Dennis (Jesslyn), and John (Julia) Steele; sister Maureen (Terry) MacDonald; and brother-in-law Rankin (Marie) MacSween; along with his nieces and nephews, Meaghan MacSween, Leah and Mya MacDonald, and Michael, Kate, and Alex Steele. He is predeceased by his parents, Roderick and Charlotte; brothers Gerard and Michael; in-laws Daniel and Marguerite MacSween; and Nancy Guidolin and Danny MacSween.
Friends and family are invited to gather for a Celebration of Kevin’s Life at 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, July 14, 2022, at McInnis and Holloway Deerfoot South, 12281 40 Street SE, Calgary.
