Mr. Stefan ‘Steve’ Kueller passed away at the Medicine Hat Regional Hospital, Medicine Hat, Alberta, on Monday, April 8, 2019, at the age of 81 years.
Steve is survived by his children, Sandra (Derrick), Carole, Steven, Eric and their families. His memory will be cherished by his sister, Rose Morfitt as well as his nieces and nephews in the Pomreinke family. He was predeceased by his wife, Sharon; sister, Maria (Mary) Pomreinke and a brother, Michael.
Steve was born in Budapest, Hungary and immigrated to Canada in 1956. After working a short time in Ontario, he moved out west, settling in Maple Creek, SK. Steve retired with Sharon in Medicine Hat after working for Parks Canada in various locations throughout Alberta and BC. Steve was known for his tireless work ethic and skilled craftsmanship in addition to his generosity and sense of humour. He was a carpenter by trade but would tackle jobs involving other trades with equal confidence. His animated style while telling a story amused all that he shared them with.
Steve recently spent lots of his time helping out at the Shell on Dunmore Road. He talked fondly of many of the staff members who welcomed him and embraced him as family. Special thanks to the friends who called 911, EMS who provided emergency response, MHRH Emergency Room staff and physicians for their valiant efforts and to the ICU Staff for their care and compassion.
