Steve Conne

November 24, 1921 - August 10, 2013


He passed away Aug. 10,2013 with his family by his side.
His family was very important to him and he had a great effect on them all .  He will be sadly missed by his loving wife Shirley; his 3 children Randy (Marg) of Kelowna, Laurie (Bob Jeffs) of Nelson and Dan (Mia) of Nelson; his 6 grandchildren Damon (Kimberley) Jeff's, Cayley (Bernie) Gallon, Sara Conne, Kyle Conne, Koko Conne and Yuki Conne; his 5 great grandchildren Taila Gallon, Emma Jeffs, Makenna Gallon, Anna Jeffs and Charlie Jeffs; and his nephew Jack (Eunice) Bird.
Steve and Shirley always considered Nelson their home even though they lived for a time in Trail, Campbell River and Coquitlam. Steve owned a few dry cleaners, worked as a fishing guide and in real estate and then at KFP until he retired. Their retirement years were very active ones – they travelled extensively. He loved the outdoors and of course, there was much skiing and hiking with his buddies and you know who you are and he thanks you for the memories.
Thank you to all of you involved in our father's care – Dr. Woodward, Dr. Malpass, Dr. Tuval, Dr. Subzwari, the staff at Mountain Lakes, those at the Nelson Hospital and the staff at Minto House in Nakusp and of course the caseworkers.
There will be a private memorial at a later date.
