Steven Andrew Fyvie “Root,” passed away after a battle with cancer on March 15, 2020, at the Kootenay Lake Hospital, he was 62 years old. He was born on June 5, 1957 in Burnaby, BC.
Steven was a Professional West Coast Faller on North Vancouver Island for many years. He then moved to Elkford, BC in 2006 to try his hand at the Line Creek Mine. Deep down, falling was is his blood and that never left him. Steve had his try in the logger sports, where he excelled effortlessly. Wherever there was a falling job to be had, Steve was your guy, power saw in hand.
Being an outdoorsman was second nature to him, no questions asked. On his days off, he was seen off-Roading with close friends or off on his own adventure.
His care free spirit, joking nature and big smiles, people couldn’t help but be drawn to him. It’s an honour to call you our son, brother, nephew, cousin, uncle, father, papi and friend. Our hearts are broken but know this “we will see you again.”
