We Remember

SOUCY, Stephen Joseph Gilbert

On Sunday, November 22, 2020, our beloved Steve Soucy suffered a heart attack and passed away.  Steve has left behind the love of his life, Julie; his children Jacob, Jackson and Jayla; his brothers Shawn, Scott, and Serge; as well as his father, Gilbert and his partner Marcelle; and many other family, friends, and musical colleagues.

Steve was an accomplished award-winning keyboardist, producer, arranger, composer, and engineer for the past 50+years.

We never realized how far Steve’s reach went until we had to say goodbye to him.  Steve probably did not even realize how many lives he touched.  The number of calls and messages have been so beautiful to see and hear and the love we feel has been an amazing testament to the man he was.

People Are Awesome – a catchphrase loved by Steve, and an embodiment of the way he lifted up all the individuals he had the opportunity to touch. Steve was a pillar of our community, and he will be sorely missed.

A Go Fund Me account has been set up to assist in helping the family with the costs of finalizing Steve’s journey on Earth and putting him to rest, Click here to contribute through Go Fund Me

  • Sue Miller says:

    My heart is so broken for you all. The idea of losing someone with such a bright and strong light inside of him seems impossible. Death reminds us of this ever so often that we are not here forever or even for as long as we hope. I remember the nights when Steve and Julie would play at my restaurant and the beautiful harmony that resulted in them collaborating together. It was pure magic. Never to be forgotten. My condolences to the Soucy family in the loss of your wonderful father and brother and to my friend Julie, you brought a pure joy to Steve that was apparent to all. He is still with you always and forever. I love you my friend and wish I could hold you close to ease your grief.
    Love you Steve. Say hi to Jimi, Janis, Curt, Jim, Chris Cornell, and Amy🎼❤️

    Our heartfelt condolences to all of Steve’s family and friends.
    I’m proud to call Steve one of “My Men” and I’m so grateful to have had him in my life for the past 25 plus years. We hadn’t spoken in probably a year and I’m so grateful that we had a great talk about 6 days before he passed. It was so good to hear his voice and we had a great chat. It was like old times.
    I loved him as everyone did and he will be greatly missed. R.I.P. Steve Soucy, until we meet again.
    With much LOVE from Bob & Lucia❤️❤️❤️❤️🎹🎹🎹🎹🎹❤️

    We knew Steve through his many performances with Cadillac Kings/Uptown Hornz. He was a real professional and always enjoyed his joie de vivre. He would be there early and we loved watching him warm up before a show.
    Please accept our condolences for the whole family and his fellow musicians. He will be sadly missed.

  • Larry McGuire says:

    Dear Julie,
    Please accept my heartfelt condolences for your loss. I am so glad to have met you both starting with the ribbon cutting ceremony of Okanagan Oldies 103,9 a few years back and the many great times enjoying your terrific musical performances around the Okanagan. I will forever cherish Steve’s warm smile & charisma in my heart and hope that you can again “Rise Up” when your heart mends over time. Please keep in touch my friend.

  • John Einarson says:

    Steve was a monster talent. What a thrill it was for me to play onstage with Steve and Julie last year at the Winnipeg Social in Kelowna. Such a profound loss. Condolences to Julie and family.

  • Donna Lee Randon says:

    Hi Julie and family and Gil, Julie I know you don’t know me but I wanted to send you my condolances. I just found out This May weekend that Steve died last November. So sorry to hear about his passing. I knew Steve from PEI
    I first sang in the Soucy family band and then Steve, Shawn and I along with our guitar player Sonny Gaudet played in a band called “Just Us” I have lots of wonderful memories making music with those guys and Steve was already a phenomenal piano player back then.
    And Shawn a great drummer. I moved to Alberta and I found out years later the boys to BC – I turned to teaching singing
    They continued to perform.
    So glad that you got to share the gift and love of music together and I wish you
    Much love from others to help you through this difficult time and transitions

  • Randy Benson says:

    Hi My name is Randy Benson and I met Stephen in Northern New Brunswick when he was 17. My wife and I stole him away on a bicycle trip to Europe for 2 months. His father nearly killed us. HE,HE. I played violin with him. They he moved to Vancouver. He was my best man at the Banff Springs hotel. I worked as a jazz musician there for 4 years. We always talked about forming a band in Vancouver but never did. Wonderful friend. I loved him dearly even though we did not see each other for a long time. Wow! What memories struggling up the hills and sleeping in the rain and playing wild crazy music in New Brunswick with Shaun on drums and Gil would get up also and play Mandolin. Scott helped me put a roof on my barn. I really liked him. Serge was very young maybe 5 or 6. Lots of fun. Soooo long ago. Love to hear from the family. Your friend Randy Benson
