It is with heavy hearts that the family of Steve Plican announce his passing after a long battle with COPD, on Friday, December 18th, 2020 at the age of 89 years.

 Steve was predeceased by his parents Mike and Rosie Plican and siblings Russell, John, Anne, Helen, Raymond and Bill.

 Steve was born in Thorhild, AB and lived on the original homestead, until, due to health in 2017, he moved from his farm to independent senior living in Thorhild, where he continued to enjoy life and his many friends in the community.  He would always say “I just love it here”.  Those who knew him, knew of his kindness and his generosity to always lend a hand.
