Early, Stephen Wilson 'Steve'

Passed away suddenly at Errinrung Retirement Home in Thornbury on Sunday February 28, 2021.

Steve was born in Brampton, only son of the late Frank and Eleanor (nee Wilson) Early.

Dear brother of Elizabeth Francis-Harris, of Meaford, predeceased by his brothers-in-law Peter Francis and Terry Harris.

Loving uncle of Charlie Francis, of Toronto.

Dear friend of Kathy and John Kerr, of Meaford.

Fondly remembered by his cousins and many friends.

Steve looked forward as a young child, spending summers at the family cottage in Meaford resulting in his move, 30 years ago, to a life of “Gentleman Farming” with a variety of “critters” and becoming involved in his rural community.

Cremation has taken place and a private family interment of his ashes will take place at Lakeview Cemetery in Meaford.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Steve was a good friend and I always laughed at his jokes, even the “politically incorrect” ones. It was all good fun.
    He will be missed.

      Hi Ann, thanks for your comments. Steve thought he was marrying you and moving west.
      For his sake, he is now released and free to fly.
      So sad, in his better days, he was a great guy but over the past years dementia took over.
      Thank you on his behalf for your constant friendship, Ann.
