STEGMAN William “Jack”
September 4 1956 – Aug 19 2011
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our brother, uncle, and a great friend to many. Born in New Westminster, BC and passed away peacefully at Campbell River & District General Hospital at the age of 54. Predeceased by his father Bill 1998, mother Ann 2006, and brother Jim 1996. Jack leaves behind his brother Gary (Joanne & family), sister Wendy (Peter Savin), sister Tracy Mullen (Tj Dafoe), and will be lovingly missed by his pride and joy nephews Austyn & Braedon Mullen. Jack touched the lives of many people with his smile and generosity, he maintained his trademark sense of humor all the way and will be missed by countless friends and family whom were blessed to have known him. In 1976 Jack was severely electrocuted at the Ocean Fall’s Mill and suffered for many years with muscle and nerve damage. He maintained his Small Engines Certificate in 1980 and his Motorcycle Mechanics Certificate in 1981 but because of chronic pain he was unable to make a working career and had permanent disability.
The early years he loved riding motorcycles and was a caregiver to his grandfather and mother for many years. He would always lend a helping hand to anyone in need and will be deeply missed by his friends. New found hobbies of sketching native art, enjoyed friends visiting and always looked forward to Friday afternoons with his nephews which consisted of a buffet of candies and chocolate, sketching groovy art, and shooting targets with their homemade slingshots. By family request there will be no service.
“Love is a smile, a tear and a touch, love says little, but means so much, love is forever, and we give it to you, from the family who thought the world of you.”
