Steve Mike Tarcon

January 25, 1943 ~ April 12, 2018 (age 75)

   It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Steve Tarcon of Coleman, AB on April 12, 2018 at the Crowsnest Pass Health Care Centre, Blairmore, AB.  He was 75 years of age.

   Steve was a devoted, loving husband, father and grandfather.  He was married to his best friend and love of his life, Nancy for almost fifty-five years and resided in Coleman his entire life.  In his early days, he worked as a coalminer for ten years before starting CNP Waste Disposal, which he owned and operated for fifty-five years and will be continued by his son, Trevor.  Steve built and operated many businesses throughout the Crowsnest Pass including a hardware store, beauty salon, restaurant, motel and mini-storage.  Although he wasn’t an active member of local clubs and associations himself, he was a dedicated supporter of many, providing generous donations every year.  Steve loved travelling with Nancy and they visited numerous countries together.  He also enjoyed time spent with close friends, but most cherished to him was the many special dinners and celebrations held surrounded by his family.  Steve will be remembered for his generosity, sense of humour and contagious laugh.

   Left to mourn his passing and celebrate his life is his beloved wife, Nancy Tarcon of Coleman, AB; his devoted children, Trevor (Riva) Tarcon of Coleman, AB and Sherryl (Brett) Gehring of Okotoks, AB; his precious grandchildren, Ryan (Jade) Tarcon, Brandon Tarcon, Corby Tarcon, Ashlyn Gehring and Kalan Gehring; his cherished great grandson, Leo Tarcon; his dear brothers, Joe (Joy) Tarcon of Winfield, BC and John (Vera) Tarcon of Bellevue, AB; as well as his extended family and many friends.

   He was predeceased by his parents, Myrtle and Andrew Tarcon of Coleman, AB.

   A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.  Memorial donations will be gratefully accepted by the CNP Health Foundation (P. O. Box 455, Blairmore, AB T0K 0E0).  Condolences may be registered at
