Steve has gone before his time. Rest in peace friend.
Marit and the rest of the Aarvik family, it was a shock to hear about Steve leaving this life far too early.
The warm thoughts and tears cried just prove how much he meant for so many people.
I was so lucky to have seen the warmth and kindness in his eyes.
I am glad I met him for a brief moment in time and space.
Remember him with pride.
Marit, Scott and I are thinking of you as the holidays approach. Knowing you have your girls & grandbabies to comfort you during these days is of great comfort...but please know that you have many friends who also hold you in our thoughts and prayers. Steve will be missed, but his legacy of laughter will go on. Just can't help but smile just thinking about him...
My condolences to friends and family of Steve Aarvik. May the God of all comfort help to ease your pain during this difficult time because He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:6,7

The Lord has a fine fisherman with him now may he watch over Steve always. Frank and Nancy Kelty
Come With Me
The Lord saw you getting tired
And a cure was not to be,
So He put his arms aroud you
And whispered ‘Come with me.'
With tearful eyes we watched you suffer
And saw you fade away.
Although we loved you dearly,
We could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Your beautiful smile at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove
He always takes the best.
It's lonesome here without you,
We miss you so each day.
Our lives just aren't the same
Ever since you went away.
When days are sad and lonely
And everything goes wrong,
We hear you gently whisper,
‘Cheer up and carry on.'
Each time we see your picture,
You seem to smile and say,
‘Don't cry, I'm in God's keeping,
We'll meet again someday.'
We miss you Dad! Rest in peace.
Steve, I think you left us way too early. Thanks for always welcoming me and for loving our kids. We will miss you very much.
On behalf of the family of Kari and Arne Aarvik we will convey our warmest sympathy and condolences from the family in Fosnavåg. It was with great sorrow we received the sad message that Steve has passed away. Unfortunately, the captain has started his last journey far too early. Our warmest thoughts and prayers goes to his beloved family who must carry the sorrow and loss. Rest in peace dear Steve.
Hugs and blessing to your family from ours!
Marit and family, I am saddened to hear about your loss. I have great memories of spending time with your family at the lake. Prayers and blessings coming your way. Francean Brown and family
Varme tanker går til dere alle.
Venche og Dag m. familie
Ufattelig og trist at vi ikke lenger får høre din rungende latter. Hvil i fred. Våre tanker Marit og familien.
Per & Hege.
Varme tanker til deg og dine Marit, fra Mariann
On behalf of my brother Christer and myself, I would like to express our deepest sympathies and condolences to the family in Seattle. Our thoughts and prayers are with you in these difficult times. Despite the huge distance between Aarvik/Aalesund and Seattle, we always were updated on Steve´s fisheries up in Alaska. The captain certainly had deserved to have many more years at home with his beloved ones….. Rest in peace dear Steve.
Steve, peace to you, and blessing to your family, may your family be surrounded in love.... Tim and Carol
The passing of Steve is an incredible loss and his spirit will always be missed. We send our continuous love to the Aarvik family during these difficult times. It is through memories and good times that we will remember Steve by and cherish those throughout our lifetime.
Steve was a wonderful man with lots of love to give and he will be missed greatly.
Så utrolig trist at du er borte fra oss. Vi vil minnes deg som en raus og flott person. Våre tanker går til dere i den aller nærmeste familien. Hvil i fred kjære Steve.
When a fellow mariner passes through the veil between this life and the next, I picture it as if Steve's ship is sailing out over the horizon. We, on this shore wave a fond farewell as his ship passes out of sight. But, on the other shore are many friends and family who have gone before waving a fond welcome on as his ship comes into sight. With our sympathy for your loss. Emery Shrock & Crew at Captain's Nautical Supplies
