Obituary of Steven Nickolas Vander Maaten

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Steven Nickolas Vander Maaten, at the age of 68, at home, after a lengthy battle with illness.


Steve was born on August 15th, 1953, in Kimberley BC and spent many years there. Once he was ready to settle down, he chose Canal Flats as his home. As an avid outdoorsman, Steve spent much of his time out in nature – hunting, fishing, and hanging out at the lake with his family. In his later years, he devoted much of his time to his grandchildren.


Steve’s memory will be treasured in the hearts of his loving wife Lynda, children Savannah, Jesse (Courtney), Bayley, and his grandchildren Raina, Tayton, and Rosalie. His father Stein (Donna), sister Jo Ann (Merv), brothers JH (Judi), Cal, Martin (Dorie), brother-in-law Allan (Lori), many nieces and nephews, and great nieces and nephews. Steve was predeceased by his mother Edna, and sisters Judy and Joan.


A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
