SWATYK, Stefan “Steve”

Peacefully at his residence, with his family on Friday, April 24, 2020 at the age of 68. Loving husband of Penny Swatyk (nee Tregarthen) married 47 years, and loving father of Kate Albanese (Nick) and Krissie Swatyk. Cherished grandfather of Breya Albanese and Peter Stefan Albanese. Beloved son of Paulina and the late Iwan Swatyk. Survived by his sisters Stefanie Callipari and Oksanna Lacina (Joe), and nieces and nephews Mike and Sofia Callipari, Josh and Jessie Lacina, Jennifer Blaak (nee Tregarthen), Tiffany and Bret Tregarthen, Johnathan and Cassie Kletzel.

Steve grew up in Chatham, Ontario, and moved around a couple times before finally settling with his family in Burlington, in 1987. He cherished spending time with his family and friends, and will be fondly remembered for both his passion for music and his love of motorcycles. Steve loved to play music for his grandchildren and jam with his buddies on the guitar. In the warmer months, he insisted on taking the back roads on his motorcycle to enjoy the scenic routes and calming rides through the country. We will forever remember Steve for his stories, his kind heart, loving nature and witty sense of humour.

Special thanks to Jas at Saint Elizabeth Health Care, Dr. Keith Comeau, and all of our family, friends and neighbours for all of their care and support during this difficult time. Private funeral prayers will be held. We look forward to gathering together for a Celebration of Steve’s Life once the COVID19 restrictions have been lifted. Please visit the funeral home website for more information. In memory of Steve, those wishing to make a donation are asked to please consider the Canadian Cancer Society.

My condolences to all of Steve’s friends and family. I so regret losing touch with my best friend from high school Steve over the years. Distance and raising family took its toll. Steve was one of the most easy going and easy to like persons I have ever known. Goodbye my dear friend!

I'll miss so many things but perhaps 'his open garage door' inviting neighbours to 'come, sit, chat' for a bit will be missed the most. Such calming conversation can not be replaced. Thanks for your friendship Steve! Ron Foster

I was saddened to hear of Mr. Swatyk's passing. Our families have been friends for as long as I can remember and he possessed a generous, warm personality. Steve would reach out to me by phone every now and again over the years to just talk and the conversations were always open and friendly. My deepest condolences to his family, and hope they are all well during this already stressful time.
Chad and Amy Boyko.
