Benedetti, Steve of Port Alberni, BC, passed away on Wednesday, March 5, 2014 with family by his side.
Predeceased by the love of his life; Jacqueline Faye Benedetti who passed February 14, 2010 and his parents Stephen and Marie Benedetti; he leaves behind his loving family, daughter, Sandy (Ben) Fedorchuk; son, Brant Benedetti; daughter-in-law, Tracy Benedetti; grandchildren, Kyle Fedorchuk, Jaime Benedetti and Kendall Benedetti. He is also survived by three brothers, all of Nelson, BC; Donald (Nina), Raymond and Silvio (Barbara) and many other family and friends in Nelson and surrounding area.
Steve’s career started at a young age with the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce which took he and his family in various communities in British Columbia and the Yukon. Relocating in 1982 to Port Alberni was the last move the family made as it was where Steve wished to retire.
Steve was an avid curler, fisherman and golfer in his younger years and found success in any sport he wished to play.
At Steve’s request there will be no formal service. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, it would be Dad’s wish that you make a donation to the charity of your choice.
“There’s a bridge of happy memories
From her to heaven above
I know we share that bridge, Dad
It’s called the Bridge of Love.”
