Steven Auld Obituary

It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce the passing of Steven Llewellyn Auld, a beloved husband, father, and grandfather. Steve passed away on February 19, 2024, at the age of 69, in the calming presence of his devoted family at the QEII Health Sciences Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Steve was born on January 3, 1955, in Halifax, Nova Scotia, to Alfred James and Gladys Marie (Forhan) Auld.

Steve married his high school sweetheart, Elizabeth (Bettyanne LeBlanc), and they were married for 48 years. Their love was a shining example to all who knew them. Steve was a loving and devoted husband, and his family was the center of his world, he felt so blessed by his wife and children, the very core of his existence.

Steve's career was marked by dedication and achievement despite having to retire early due to declining health. He retired from the Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation (NSLC) as a manager in Bedford, where he was highly respected by his colleagues and peers. He took great pride in his work, and his expertise in the industry was evident through his training as a Scotch Connoisseur and German Wine Specialist. He was also a Master Product Specialist and attended the Distillery Training Course at Hiram Walkers & Co in Waterville, Ontario. Steve thoroughly enjoyed his work life managing, coaching, and training throughout HRM. In sharing his knowledge, he strived to inspire with excellence.

In addition to his professional accomplishments, Steve was an active member of his community. He enjoyed playing senior men's softball for both the NSLC and the Beaver Bank Smokeaters. He also served as a volunteer firefighter with the Beaver Bank Fire Department and found fulfillment in his role as a CPR and First Aid trainer. Steve's commitment to service extended beyond his community, as he was recognized with the President's Award for his valuable contributions to the MS Society in 2003. In later years, after seeking a wheelchair sport he could try, he joined the Lakeshore curling club, which he totally enjoyed while he was able to. Thanks to the wonderful friends he met.

Those who knew Steve described him as a wonderful husband, father, and friend. He was caring, considerate, and always a gentleman. His fun-loving nature and kindness endeared him to all who crossed his path. Steve's love for his family was unwavering, and he never missed an opportunity to express his love for them, often saying " I love you more".

One of Steve's greatest passions was for his "Babe" as well as all of his children's pets along the way. The unconditional loyalty and love, the kisses and cuddles comforted him always.

Steve will be deeply missed by his loving wife, Elizabeth, his son, John D (Penny), his daughter, Adrienne (Steve) Boutilier, and his cherished granddaughter, Emily Blaire. He was especially close to his sister-in-law, Janet (Jeff) Dickie, nephew Greg and sis Leah LeBlanc. Steve is also lovingly survived by his sister, Sandra (Jack) Delaney and brother, Timothy (Joy) Auld as well as numerous loving family members, including cousins, nieces, nephews, grandnieces, and grandnephews.

Steve was predeceased by his father, Alfred James, mother, Gladys Marie (Forhan), and sister, Barbara (Jim) Stewart.

Our family would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude to two very special nurses, Elizabeth Obeng Nkrumah and Barbara Wright, for their loving support and exceptional care. Their dedication and compassion brought comfort to Steve and his family during a difficult time. The family also wishes to thank all the VON nurses and countless EMT individuals for their support and assistance along the way.

Cremation has taken place, and a celebration of Steven's life will be held at a future time. In the meantime, our family would like to share the following thought that brings us solace as we remember him. Steve's presence will be deeply missed, but his spirit will live on in the hearts of those who loved him.

"When we lose someone we love, we must learn not to live without them, but to live with the love they left behind".
