Steve is sur­vived by his com­mon-law wife, Alice Payne; his sons, Gary, Louis­bourg, Glen (Lucy), Bate­ston and their mother Mar­jorie; his sis­ter, Mar­jorie, Marys­town, New­found­land.

Be­sides his par­ents, he was pre­de­ceased by his broth­ers, Garfield, Levi and Maxwell, sis­ters, Win­nifred and Is­abelle.
