April 20, 1948 – July 27, 2022
In Loving Memory ~
On the morning of Wednesday, July 27, 2022, Steven Robert Bridge passed away at home in Cranbrook . Steve was born on April 20, 1948, the first child born to Ken and Phoebe Bridge. He grew up and went to school in Cranbrook and when he was in Grade 6, he won a contest to name a school. That school was Amy Woodland Elementary School in Cranbrook.
Steve married Krista Langenbach on November 2, 1985 and together they raised their two children; Kenny and Jenni.
All summer you would find Steve at his huge vegetable garden. He was employed at the Skookumchuck Pulp Mill for 34 years and during that time he purchased East Kootenay Greenhouse. He and his wife Krista ran it until they decided to shut it down in 2007.
Until this spring, he still enjoyed his huge vegetable garden at that property.
Steve loved camping at his favorite camping spot in Rexford, Montana. He has many fond memories of the trips he took to Cuba. He always enjoyed his Havana Club Rum and a nice Cohiba Cigar.
Steve will be deeply missed by his beloved wife Krista and his children; Kenny and Jenni (Ryan) as well as his two grandchildren – his grandson and buddy Jack and his granddaughter Maizie. He also leaves behind his brothers Henry Bridge, Ken (Karin) Bridge and one sister Sue Pettypiece.
He will be sadly missed by his sister-in-law Anna Langenbach and brothers-in-law Paul and Walter (Elaine) Langenbach.
Steve leaves his nephew Cohen Langenbach and nieces Marcy, Lisa, Candice, Chrissy and Donna as well as one uncle Charles Dyer and one Aunty Maxine and numerous cousins from Cranbrook, Kamloops, Fraser Lake and the west coast.
Steve was predeceased by his parents, Ken and Phoebe Bridge.
At Steve’s request, there will be no funeral service. If friends desire , memorial donations may be made in Steve’s memory to a charity of your choice.Obituary
