Stephen “Steve” Matthew Pooley. August 16th, 1953 – January 1st, 2018

With great sadness, we announce the passing of Stephen Matthew Pooley, who died on January 1st, 2018, at St. Michael’s Hospice after a lengthy illness. Steve is survived by his much-loved daughter, Erin, son, Mathew, grandchildren, Asha and Everett, and wife, Joanne. Steve was a wonderful artist and sign painter, and, in his last few years, he enjoyed painting representations of landmark signs around Vancouver. His decades-long career in the movie industry was a source of great pleasure for Steve, and he made many dear friends in the industry. Steve had a particular talent for friendship–some of his closest friends were from his childhood and teenage years. John Daly–a friend from their days at Eric Hamber high school–was by his side every day in his last several weeks. Steve is also survived by his parents, Don and Kate Pooley, and his five siblings, Johnny, Tony (Charmaine), Elizabeth (Paul), Sheila (James), and Mark, as well as many nieces and nephews. A private celebration of Steve’s life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in Steve’s memory to St. Michael’s Hospice, Burnaby.
