“Remember me fondly

and know that I loved you”

I lived a wonderful life. Born in Ireland, one of the youngest of 19 children. I was surrounded by love. At 24 I left my homeland for Canada where I met my bride Mary in Toronto and we were soon blessed with 3 children. Stephen is survived by his children Maureen Mohan, Michael Ireland, Teresa Ankenman, Spouses and Children. We then settled out west and enjoyed the best years of our lives. Being a risk taker served me well in construction and land development. We were grateful to see our children well established in their lives. After Mary’s passing in 1993 I enjoyed many years of daily golf (not to mention 6 hole in ones), cheering the Canucks, and time spent with cherished family and friends. Throughout life’s hardships my faith and optimism always gave me the strength to endure. Stephen’s Funeral Mass was held at Star of The Sea Parish on Monday Oct. 1, 2012. A Christian Burial took place a Gardens of Gethsemani.
