Steven Root Andrew Fyvie

June 5, 1957 - March 15, 2020


Steven Andrew Fyvie “Root”
1957 – 2020

Steven Andrew Fyvie “Root,” passed away after a battle with cancer on March 15, 2020, at the Kootenay Lake Hospital, he was 62 years old. He was born on June 5, 1957 in Burnaby, BC.

Steven was a Professional West Coast Faller on North Vancouver Island for many years. He then moved to Elkford, BC in 2006 to try his hand at the Line Creek Mine. Deep down, falling was is his blood and that never left him. Steve had his try in the logger sports, where he excelled effortlessly. Wherever there was a falling job to be had, Steve was your guy, power saw in hand.

Being an outdoorsman was second nature to him, no questions asked. On his days off, he was seen off-Roading with close friends or off on his own adventure.

His care free spirit, joking nature and big smiles, people couldn’t help but be drawn to him. It’s an honour to call you our son, brother, nephew, cousin, uncle, father, papi and friend. Our hearts are broken but know this “we will see you again.”

Steven was predeceased by his partner Brigitte Poirier on September 8, 2018, and his dad Dave Fyvie on February 7, 2020.

Steve is survived by his children, Tyler Fyvie, Kendra Fyvie Ball (Gilles Ball), Granddaughters Lydia and Charlotte Ball, Salina Preist (Matt), brother, Mike (Dianne)  Niece, Amanda (Ryan Humphrey) daughter’s, Mecca and Liv, nephew, Adam Fyvie (Katie) son’s  Emett and Owen, sister, Bernice (Mike Jones)  Niece, Kristen Jones (Jeff)  Nephew, Brad Jones (Emily), aunts, cousins, and so many friends. As well as Steve’s extended ‘family’ in Elkford – God Bless You.

 Special thanks to the doctors, nurses and the social workers at Kootenay Lake Hospital for the care you gave Steven. Thank you to Thompson Funeral Service for all your help in guiding us through this difficult time.

Farewell to you. But not farewell.

From: Karen Waugh
Relation: cousin

Wow, as with everyone else we are still trying to come to terms. Our hearts go out to sister Bernice and brother Mike and their families, as well as Steve’s family. Your brother/dad was a wonderful man. We didn’t see much of each other in later years, but when we did it was like it was yesterday. He was so easy to be with, lovable and always up for a laugh. All us girls (aunts & cousins) had a soft spot in our hearts for Steve. Ya just couldn’t help it ! Have you noticed that whenever you speak of him, it is with a smile? He will be loved, missed and remembered by everyone he touched. And as Diane said, hopefully he finds his dad who went first to wait for him.
Rest in peace, cuz !
