Elaine (and Family) , I am so very sorry to hear of Steve’s passing. Unfortunately, I never had the opportunity to meet Steve. I was home the first week of August and everyone was headed over to your cottage on Sunday for a BBQ. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time. R.I.P. Steve.

I am so sorry for your loss Elaine. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time.

Sorry to hear of Steves passing sincere condolences to all the family …..great friend left us too soon may his gentle soul fly high with the Angels in heaven . May God give you the strength during these difficult times !!

Elaine and families, I was shocked and devastated when I heard this tragic news, as I’m positive everyone that knew Butch felt. I knew Butch through his best bud Justin Newman up at Henders!! I remember the last night spent with both Butch and Newman along with my sister Jackie. What a great night that was, lots of laughs, chats and hee haws. I remember what my sister said to me the next morning, she said what a nice fella Butch was -the fruit of the earth, no truer words said. R.I.P. Butch God Bless

Elaine, I was so shocked and saddened to learn of your husband’s sudden passing. My most heartfelt condolences to you and your family.

Elaine, words could never express how deeply saddened we are for the loss of Steve. Just two years ago we met in Hender’s Road while ye were looking for a moose….that’s when a great friendship was made. Steve and Shawn got along like they were friends for a lifetime…many a time spent having a coffee and a yarn in the ” smoke room ” at your house in Deer Park. There was never a time when you’d show up and Steve would ask you “want something to eat? or have a coffee ” we always felt so welcome. He thought alot about you and it showed…a great man who cared deeply for his grandkids as well. No one can heal your pain but time, family, friend’s and great memories will make each day help you through.Deer Park has lost a great friend, RIP my friend.

So sorry Elaine. There are no words. Thinking of you. Keep his memory alive.
Rick & Linda Hayden

Our most sincere and heartfelt condolences to The Escott Family.
As I mentioned to Elaine shortly after hearing this devastating news, Steve was The Older Brother that I did not have but wish I did. We often shared ideas and laughter as well as a few tears during some of our challenges. We helped each other in a heartbeat and solidified an agreement with nothing more than a handshake. Although our friendship spanned most of the last decade, we always remained in communication. I trust that Steve is in Heaven riding his Harley, still steering us away from harm and guiding us the best he can.
God Bless, BJB,, Karen and Family
