(January 31, 1953-October 19, 2022)
Stephen Jevcak passed away after a brief illness on Wednesday, October 19th surrounded by his family.
He will be sorely missed by his siblings; Lind de Vries, Tom Jevcak (Rosemary), Sandra Jevcak, and Ed Jevcak (Helen), as well as his nephew and nieces; Kurt de Vries (Cleo), Quinn de Vries (Jeff), Leah de Vries (Dustin) and Jordy Jevcak-Hall. Predeceased by his father and mother; Stefan Jevcak and Anna Jevcak (nee Sincak).
Steve is best known for his kindness and altruism. He would go out of his way to help anyone in any way he could. He was a farmer, truck driver, musician, mechanic, animal lover, heavy machinery operator, party host (The Webber Road Parties) and, most importantly, a great friend. Steve had a way of inciting the extremes in both himself and others–it was always full tilt, pedal to the metal. Whether you loved him or hated him, he made you feel something. He was a very special person, truly one of a kind. Many people will remember him bar-hopping with his best friend, Butler (pictured above).
In his final years, Steve mostly kept to himself, but found comfort in a new close friend – Sadie. They found one another when they needed each other most. Sadie will miss all their truck rides together.
Steve’s family would like to thank Mike, Ron, Bruno, his nurse Lisa, and the care teams at the Juravinski Innovation Tower (St. Joseph’s) for their kindness and care. Any donations to the Niagara SPCA in Steve’s name would be greatly appreciated. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Lampman Funeral Home. www.lampmanfuneralhome.com

Steve always enjoyed playing and joking with his nieces and nephew when they were children. Loved the many dogs he and friends had. The music room at the barn had many wild tunes with the 70s band. Some wild rides in the car were memorable. Something like the dukes of hazzard. He loved the farm life and operating different equipment. Enjoy your ride in eternity Steve. Hope you’re driving a great car.
We are so very sorry to hear this sad news. Our sincere condolences to the family, Lind, Tom, Sandra and Ed. May he rest in peace.
