Thon, Steven Kelwood of Holberg, BC born on October 10, 1955 lost his battle with ALS on May 27, 2011 in Vernon, BC at the age of 55. Predeceased by his brother Brian, father Norlin and wife Donna.

Steve spent the last few months in Vernon being cared for by his brother Bob and sister-in-law Glenda, enjoying daily drives in his truck. Steve was the ultimate Canuck fan and was able to make it to game one against San Jose. Not even his tough exterior could hide his caring nature to help his family and friends at a drop of a hat. He holds a special place in the hearts of all who knew him. Special thanks to Glenda and Bob for their loving care of Steve during his last months. There will be no service by request. Donations in Steve’s memory can be made to the ALS society of BC.
