STEVE SZEGO SR. (published on July 08, 2009)

STEVE SZEGO SR. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, and grandfather, Steve Szego Sr. on Thursday, July 2, 2009 at the age of 76. Steve worked for Dominion Tannery for seven years before embarking on a career as a letter carrier for Canada Post where he worked for 27 years until he retired at age 61. He is survived and will greatly be missed by his wife of 51 years, Anna; children Julius, (Heather), Steven (Sharlene), Charlotte, (Darryl); grandchildren Cardelle, Vanessa, Lena, Emma, and Ellie; and sister-in-law Kathy. Steve was predeceased by his parents, Istvan and Sarika, and his brother Ferencz. Steve was born April 17, 1933 in Budapest, Hungary and came to Canada in 1956, settling in Vancouver where he continued with his passion for soccer by playing semi pro, and where he met his beloved wife Anna. They soon married in Abbotsford, B.C. in 1958, and lived there for two more years before moving to Winnipeg. Steve had an unbridled passion for horse racing and loved to spend time at his second home Assiniboia Downs, where he also worked part time. He continued his penchant for horse racing until the day he died, winning numerous contests and his love of hockey, especially the Toronto Maple Leafs, brought him many fond memories and enabled him to meet a lot of friends. Honourary pallbearers will be Ted Foreman, Billy Foreman, Gord Garvie, Norman Nault Sr., Norman Nault Jr., Ed Winterhalt and John Nemeth. A memorial service will be held on July 13 at 3:00 p.m. at Chapel Lawn Memorial Gardens 4000 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg, Manitoba. Our family would like to thank the staff on GD4 at the Health Sciences Centre. In lieu of flowers, friends may make a donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, Ste. 200 - 6 Donald St., Winnipeg, MB R3L 0K6 or a charity of their choice. We feel sad to let you go, you were so tired, and this we know. In our hearts the smiles and laughter will remain, to help us with this awful pain. May God watch over you, we love you so much. Until we meet again. They're at the post, and they're off! Hope there is a racetrack up there Dad!
