Steedman, Donald (Don) Wayne


MARCH 17, 1946 ~ NOVEMBER 19, 2023

The family of Don Steedman is sad to announce his sudden passing in Rocky View Hospital in Calgary after a short illness.

Born in Red Deer, Alberta in 1946, the eldest son of John and Helen Steedman, he spent his early school years in Calgary. In 1960 Don and his family moved to Windermere where his parents bought and ran the Rio Lynne grocery, gas station and cabins.

Growing up Don was a avid sportsman, playing sports of all kinds including basketball, hockey, and baseball. In his later life his love of sports brought him to cycling and he became very involved with the local cycling club.

Don was perhaps best known in the valley for his many years of owning and operating Rockies Pizzeria in Radium. After suffering a stroke in 2016, Don worked hard at his rehabilitation and deciding to make the best of his situation, got himself a scooter for getting around Invermere. He could often be found downtown visiting various businesses, going for coffee with friends, or venturing out on the Legacy Trail with his three wheeled adaptive E-bike.

Don made many friends over the years and became a part of many families, where he would share his funloving and positive attitude.

Passing before him were his parents, Helen and John and his brother, Bob. He is survived by his brother Jack (Glenda), Windermere, his sister Carol Dobson (John), Brisco and many nieces and a nephew.

Join us as we celebrate and remember Don on Friday, December 8th, 3:00 pm at the Windermere Community Hall.
