Obituary for Stephen Alphonse Osadan

Fantin’s Funeral Chapel
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Stephen “Steve” Osadan on July 31, 2021, at Chinook Regional Hospital, Lethbridge, Alta. He was 78 years of age.

Steve was born in Blairmore, Alta., on Feb. 23, 1943, to proud parents Martin and Annie Osadan, and he matured into a hard-working and good-natured young man.

His upbeat personality and bright smile helped him win the heart of the love of his life, Cathy Beck. The happy couple married on July 25, 1987, and they went on to be blessed with almost 30 years of marriage.

Growing up in the Crowsnest Pass, Steve had a true appreciation for the outdoors and he enjoyed it whenever he could while hunting, fishing or camping. He also liked going to casinos to try his luck.

Over the years, Steve was an active volunteer for many organizations in Crowsnest Pass, Lundbreck and Pincher Creek, such as Citizens on Patrol and the Royal Canadian Legion — most recently Branch 43, Pincher Creek.

He also loved dogs and, more than anything else, spending time with his family and friends. Steve was an incredibly happy person who almost always had a smile on his face and a joke at the ready. Wonderful memories of him will remain in our hearts forever.

Left to mourn his passing and celebrate his life are his many nieces and nephews, including Margaret Jones and children, Lindsey Jones and Ryan (Elisha Self) Jones, Leslie (John) Orleni and children, Brenda (Aaron Frederick) Verbaas and Michael Verbaas, and Byron Voytko; his great and great-great nieces and nephews; his brother-in-law and sister-in-law Billy and Jill Beck of Osoyoos, B.C.; and countless friends, especially his best friend, Les Robertson of Pincher Creek, Alta.

He was predeceased by his beloved wife, Cathy Osadan; his parents, Martin and Annie Osadan; his brothers and their wives, Martin (Midge) Osadan, Joe (Carol) Osadan and John (Margaret) Osadan; and his sisters and their husbands, Veronica (Frank) Edl and Cathy (Leon) Grosso.

With respect for Steve’s wishes, no funeral service will be held. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations will be gratefully accepted by your local SPCA or animal shelter. Condolences may be registered at www.fantinsfuneralchapel.ca.
