Obituary for Stephen Wright Gertridge

STEPHEN WRIGHT GERTRIDGE of Bedford, Nova Scotia passed away on April 2, 2020. He we predeceased by his parents, Marilyn and Dean Gertridge of Gaspereaux Valley, N.S.

He is survived by his wife Paige, two daughters Erin Kingan (Gavin) Oamaru, New Zealand, Kira Poirier (Richard) of Upper Rawdon,
N.S. and grandchildren Tyson, Harper, Cameron, and Dean. He is also survived by his sisters Daphne Frazee (Jim ), Grace Fraser (Ted), and brother Trevor Gertridge (Suzanne)

Stephen was a very proud father of both his girls whom he loved dearly and had many fond memories of skiing in the winters and spending the summers at the cottage together.

In his earlier years he enjoyed coaching hockey for Sackville High and in the 80's fulfilled his love for speed car racing at Shubenacadie raceway. The cottage in Seafoam was a very special place for him as he loved the Northumberland Straight and took every opportunity he had to be out on the water. He worked with RJR Macdonald for many years, managed the Halifax Windjammers basketball team until he started Beam Security which he continued to operate until his retirement.

Steve had a large circle of friends that he enjoyed spending time with and was always there to lend a helping hand. You would always know when Steve was around as you would hear his unforgettable laugh from a mile. He will be dearly missed. A celebration for his life will be held at a later date.

Steve was a best friend for many years. Although we spent many years racing at AMP in Shubenacadie my greatest memories are of our trips to Quebec City for the winter carnival. Steve, Paige and I made this trip many times and partied long into the wee hours on far too many nights. The next time I have a glass of Caribou I will raise it in memory to Steve and all the good times we shared.

Paige, I was very sorry to hear of your loss. I remember as a kid (1970's) hanging around with Susan at your family home and you & Steve would always be in & out rushing to do something exciting. You two were really living the life. I'm sure those times hold fond memories for you too. I'm hugging you in my heart Paige....Pat Urbach Leonard
