LAW, Steven Gary It is with deepest sorrow we announce that Steven Gary Law, our beloved son, father, brother, family member and friend passed suddenly on September 1, 2021 at the age of 56. Those who knew Steve, even just a little, lost a shining light in their lives. Steve was born March 7, 1965 on the North Shore. As a child he spent many hours with his Nana and Poppa enjoying milkshakes and fries at the family restaurant, the Tomahawk BBQ, where he first learned many of the skills he carried with him throughout his career in sales, and his love of cooking. Steve had a knack for telling a story and making people laugh and he always loved being the centre of attention and the main focus of the camera. Steve's love of hockey started at a young age at Hollyburn Country Club, leading the club in points and goals. Many hat tricks were had on the ice and Steve certainly had the potential to go professional had he chosen to do so. When Steve became an older brother, he took this role very seriously and became the protector of his sister and brother and he relished all their attention. Growing up they shared family activities like skating, bowling, and going to see Star Wars in the theatres dozens of times. Of the 3 of them, Steve always had the best hair, no one could rock a mullet like Steve, he carried the message of the mullet way past its prime, but he did the mullet proud. Steve loved Aerosmith and many of the 80's rock bands and he reconnected with his cousins at the shows and concerts that he attended. Steve found spending those hours at live music events to be some of the most impactful times of his life. One of Steve's favourite places was Eagan Lake in the Cariboo. Steve would spend weeks there every summer as a child and then as an adult with his children always inviting friends to join him fish, waterski, ride motorbikes and quads and so much more. It was an annual event to see what Star Wars floatie he had purchased for the lake, each year getting bigger and more extravagant than the year prior. Memories were made around the camp fire that will remain with all of us forever. Steve had an obsessive devotion when it came to his teams, the Boston Bruins and the Seattle Seahawks. Wherever he lived, he always had a shrine to Bobby Orr, and he used the number 4 whenever possible. When it was a Seahawks game day, you would always find Steve dressed in full Seahawks attire from head to toe. He was the ultimate fan and the Seahawks #12 man. The greatest day of Steve's life was the day he became a dad. Sarah and Brandon brought him so much joy and love, and they were always a source of pride and happiness to him. As a Dad, Steve was caring, dedicated and committed to helping raise two wonderful people along side his partner and first love Leah. For part of their childhood, Steve was working in Portland, and he would drive all night to participate in important events and milestones. Steve's love and devotion for his children was undeniable. Later in life, Steve returned to BCIT to obtain a diploma in Community Services and worked with Pacific Coast Community Resources, showing his natural inclination to want to help and care for others. Steve will be missed every day by his mom Sharon (Sandy), his daughter Sarah (Tristan), his son Brandon, his Dad Barry, his sister Sharlene and brother Sean (Carla). He will also be missed by his sisters Jen and Valerie, his nieces Samantha, Brianna and Meg, his nephews Erik and Ryan, and his Uncle Ron and Uncle Bill, his Aunt Jackie, and his cousins Ron Jr., Russell, Shirley and Margaret, along with many friends. Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at www.hendersonslangleyfunerals.com for the LAW family. A celebration of Steve's life will be held at a future date. "Life's a journey, not a destination, and I just can't tell just what tomorrow brings." - Aerosmith
