It is with enormous sadness that we, the family, announce the sudden passing of Stephen Wallace Burton, at home, on Sunday, Feb. 16, 2014.
Steve was born on April 14, 1987, in Sydney, N.S., but lived in Guelph, Ont. since 1999.
He was the beloved brother of Alison and Reginald Reid, the loving uncle of Mallory Reid (Jay) and Tyler Reid and the great-uncle of Addelaine Reid, whom he adored, the loving nephew of Debbie (Rob) Desveaux, the son of Wallace 'Buzz' Burton and a wonderful person to many more relatives in Cape Breton.
Steve was predeceased by his mother, Sharon Ann (nee Brown) Burton; by his maternal
grandparents, Ignatius and Kathleen Brown and by his paternal grandparents, Wallace Burton and Eileen Burchell.
Steve was the treasured friend of so many special people who shared their love, friendship and life with him. He was a big guy with a big heart and a bigger personality. He was a philanthropist to the core and shared all he had and all he was with everyone he encountered. Although he faced many challenges in his life, he overcame all and came out a better person for all that he had to live through. Steve will live on through all of us who were lucky enough to know him and have him in our lives.
"How can the Devil take a brother if he’s close to me?
I’d love to go back to when we played as kids but things
changed, and that’s the way it is.
Things will never be the same.
That’s just the way it is."
