December 10, 1952 – June 6, 2013
Steve was born in Birmingham England and immigrated to Canada, becoming a citizen in 1983. He briefly worked in Edmonton before joining “Farmer Construction” in Victoria, BC working as an Estimator during the building of Woodgrove Shopping Centre in Nanaimo.
He started the “Country Pies” business in Coombs then got back into construction, building homes and doing renovation work up and down the Island before settling in the Comox Valley.
Steve will be terribly missed by his wife Barbara and step-son Patrick Fraser; his father and dear mom (in their 90’s) still living in England; brother Phillip Harris and wife Hannah; and Steve’s niece Katie, husband Russell and great nephews, all also in England. And Mike, he will miss you too Buddy.
The Harris and Fraser families would like to extend a special thank you to the Victoria Cancer Clinic, Dr. Jason Wale, Dr. Margaret Manville and extend the deepest gratitude to Dr. Simon Colgan and the extraordinary home care nurses who helped Steve so much during his final days.
Steve made many friends through his work and in respecting his wishes there will be an open house on Sunday, June 30th starting at noon at his home he built in Comox to celebrate his life. Please join us.
