STEAD, Calvin Kenneth
The Guest Book is expired.
With great sadness we announce that Calvin passed away peacefully, at age 50, at home with his family by his side. He is survived by wife Kris, daughters Molly and Anna, mother Ione Longmore, and sister Sharon Park. Much loved father, husband, son, brother, uncle and friend: Cal will be so very much missed. We'll all remember his sense of humour, stories and jokes. Travels around the world during his youth, family get-togethers, teaching in Japan, family road trips, poker nights, a career in tech and 'Calvin dinners' were all high points of Calvin's life. During his five years of cancer treatments, Cal embraced his Christian faith and left an indelible mark on all he met. We are thankful to Dr. Smiljanic, Dr. Klimo, Dr. Bains, Dr. Bieg, Pat MacDonald and all the amazing staff in Lion's Gate Oncology. In lieu of flowers, his daughters Molly and Anna Stead request donations to the 'Dugout' (connected to First United Church) or the Lion's Gate Hospital Foundation earmarked for the Paul Klimo fund.
