It is with profound sadness that the family of Steven Kevin Briggs announce his passing on September 11, 2023 at the age of 62, after a battle with Cancer. He was predeceased by his father Fred. He is survived by his mother Barbara, siblings, children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and friends.
Steve was born and raised in Keighley, Yorkshire, England. After graduating from school Steve earned his Journeyman Chef certification with the British Army Catering Core. He had a lifelong passion for cooking which took him to many places throughout Europe and Alberta. He began a career as a Correctional Officer later in life working at the Drumheller Institution. He was a vocal member of the local union advocating for his fellow officers for many years before his retirement in 2020.
Steve was a passionate storyteller, and his many stories will be missed greatly.
An informal, come and go, Celebration of Life will be held starting at 1 pm, Saturday, September 23, 2023 at the Nacmine Community Hall.
Come share some tea, biscuits and stories.
