It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Raymond “Toughie” Steeves, 83, on October 13, 2015 at the Dr.George-L.-Dumont University Hospital Center, Moncton, NB, surrounded by his caring family. Born in Moncton, he was the son of Walter and Arloa (Cunningham) Steeves. Ray was the last member of his immediate family.
He was a loving husband to his wife Yvette “LeBlanc”. Raymond will be sadly missed by his three
daughters: Charlotte (& Ron) Leger, Susan (& Yvon) Melanson, Donna Steeves;
grandchildren: Marc, Michel, Natalie, Luc and Catherine and his great grandson, Malik.
Ray worked as a Cost Analyst at CNR for 35 years followed with 5 years of consulting work with the Drug and Alcohol Commission. He was Deputy Mayor/Counsellor for 8 years. Ray was instrumental in the building of the Centennial Arena in Dieppe and President of the Recreation council. He was a parishioner of St Theresa Church. Ray devoted many hours to volunteering, community work, the Bill W program and politics (Blue party of course!!!!).
Ray was an accomplished hockey and baseball player. Played hockey with teams like the Memramcook Rovers, Moncton jr. Hawks, Amherst Ramblers, Miramichi Beavers. He played baseball for the Dieppe Cardinals that won the 1949 maritime junior championship and the Lewisville Keefe Cubs which were inducted into both the N.B. baseball Hall of fame and Moncton hall of fame.
He enjoyed golf, reading and gardening which were a source of pride and joy. No visitation by request.
