Reginald Steven “Steve” Knowles, 69, of Berwick passed away on June 4, 2019 at the Valley Regional Hospital. He was born in the Payzant Memorial Hospital in Windsor, NS, and was the son of the late Benjamin Alan Knowles and Patricia Lenora (Crudge) Knowles.
He attended Windsor Regional High School, Kings College and Middleton Community College. Steve worked in retail, and was Co Owner of The Brown Paper Bag and later worked in the men's department at K.B. Dress Shop, Windsor. He also ventured to Alberta and worked as a farm labourer. As a result of having Parkinson’s Disease, Steve lived at Liberty Lodge, Berwick for the past sixteen years.
Steve was a very caring person and kind to a fault. He was a Tim’s coffee goer, enjoyed weekly outings at Open Arms, was an avid science fiction reader, loved music and watching action and adventure movies, as well as going to yard sales. While his mother was living, he made week-end treks to Windsor to try to beat her in Skip Bo.
Steve is survived by his daughter Angelique, Winnipeg, MB., son Andrew, Red Deer, Alb., brother Alan (Linda Eaton) Knowles, North's Corner and special friend Jeannie Viner, Berwick.
