It is with great sadness that the family of Stephen Duane Hovey announces his sudden passing at the age of 61.
Stephen is survived by his devoted son, Shannon (Keri); and loving daughter, Madison; his parents, Lois and Duane; sister, Susan and niece Nikki; three grandsons, Riley, Ty and Levi; as well as, numerous other relatives and friends.
Born in Toronto on October 12, 1959, Stephen enjoyed hockey as a child and later became involved in car sales where he found a life long career. He worked many years for Honda, Harvard Auto Sales, and most recently was founder and co-owner of Scotiashare Bus Sales.
Stephen enjoyed spending time in the Miramichi with his loving family. He was a caring and wonderful son, father, and grandfather. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him. Stephen had a great sense of humour and a special talent for making all in his company feel at home. He could always be counted on to lend a helping hand when needed and was always there with a huge heart. There is an enormous void forever in our hearts. He is one of a kind and can never be replaced.
Arrangements have been entrusted to the loving care of York Funeral Home’s Miramichi Valley Chapel. Due to Covid19 restrictions, there will be a Celebration of Life held at a later date. Personal condolences may be offered through www.yorkfh.com
