July 2, 1968 – Nov. 11, 2014
It is with great sadness that we share the loss of our beloved Steven who was taken tragically in a motor vehicle accident on Tuesday, November 11. Steve was the third child born to Marg and Bob Mains in Edmonton, Alberta. The family moved to Red Deer in 1971 and Steve completed all of his public schooling here at Mountview School, Eastview Junior High School and Lindsay Thurber Comprehensive High School. He was a skilled hockey player who nurtured his talents with the Red Deer Optimist Midget Chiefs and enjoyed a long career in the AJHL with the Red Deer Rustlers and the Hobbema Hawks. Following his hockey days, he followed in his father’s footsteps and pursued his passion for aviation and all things airplanes working for Chemonics Industries in the summer and proudly earning his private pilot license when he was back home. In 1994, while working in Fort McMurray, he met and married the love of his life, Agatha Marshall. Steve and Agatha moved to Red Deer in the fall when Steve found work with Schlumberger. They finally settled in Sylvan Lake and enjoyed travelling to sunny destinations with family, friends and their beloved puppies. He will be lovingly remembered as a kind and gentle soul who had a magical way with animals and all the patience in the world with small children. When Steve hugged you, he pulled you into his heart. We will all miss his sweet face and the beautiful twinkle of his loving eyes. He leaves behind his wife, Agatha, his mother, Margaret, brother, Randy (Dawn, Kyle, Haylee), sister, Sandra (Shawn), numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins. Also mourning this loss is his sister in law, Rhona (Ken), brother in laws, Ed (Alane), Maurice, mother in law, Ann, and six nieces and nephews, Cody, Jamie, Dylan, Billy, Jake and Kennedy. He was predeceased by his father, Bob Mains and a sister, Suzanne. A Funeral will be held Our Lady of the Assumption Church, Sylvan Lake on Monday, November 17, 2014 at 11:00 A.M. As an expression of sympathy memorial donations may be made in Steve’s honor to the Central Animal Services (CARES).
