McInnis-Stephen. It is with heavy hearts that the family and friends of Stephen Robert McInnis announce his sudden and unexpected passing on July 22, 2004. Steve was a good friend to many, generous to a fault, the defender of the underdog, quick to help friend or stranger in time of need or distress, saviour of stray animals, and loved nothing more than to catch up on the latest news with his many friends. Steve leaves behind his wife and best friend Maureen, his sisters Maryellen (Richard) and Lisa (Rob); brothers John (Rose) and Mike (late Sandy) sister-in-law Linda (Bruce) and parents-in-law Buzz and Claire Powell. He will be sorely missed by his beloved nieces Drea, Erin, Michaela, Laura, Kylie, Becky, Angela and Andrea; nephews Curt and Michael, as well as numerous great nieces and nephews. An informal outdoor memorial service will be held at the home of Geoff and Brenda Howard, 4318 Sunrise Road on Friday July 30 at 2 pm. Flowers greatfully declined; however, in keeping with Steve's love of the mountains and forests he worked in and the wildlife therein, those who desire may make a donation in his memory to Wilderness Watch, V.F.G, c/o Dennis Martel Box 982, Lake Cowichan, BC V0R 2G0.
