Nov. 20, 1935 – May 22, 2012
With great sorrow we announce that Abe passed away peacefully with his family by his side.
Abe is survived by his loving wife of 49 years, Joan; his four sons: Michael, Christopher, David (Tina) and Dr. Richard Steeves (Anna); eight grandchildren: Terry, Amanda, Josh, Oliver, Christyn, David, Sara and Karl; great-grandson Draven; sister Marianne Baumgartner and brother-in-laws Günther Bartholomes and Hermann Walz and many nieces and nephews in Germany.
Abe was born in Stuttgart, Germany and came to Canada in 1953. He resided at Canim Lake for the last 26 years.
This gentle husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather will be greatly missed, but always in our hearts.
Many thanks to the staff of 100 Mile Hospital and the wonderful nurses at the ICU at the Royal Inland Hospital for their care and compassion.
No service by request.
