It is with great pain and heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Steven Charles Dollar on Thursday, June 3rd, 2019 at the age of 58, in Hawkesbury, Ontario.
Originally born in Sault Saint-Marie, Ontario, and having grown up in Oshawa and Waterloo, Ontario, Steven graduated from Windsor Law School. He went on to enjoy a successful practice, having worked as Military Defense Council and Attorney for the Judge Advocate General’s Office in Canada and abroad. He then began working as Federal Crown Council at the Canada Revenue Agency in Ottawa, and then with the Public Prosecution Service of Canada, in Kitchener, Ontario.
Though his career was an important and meaningful part of his life, Steven’s son, Geoffrey was evidently the centre of his world. As such, Steven purchased his final home in Hawkesbury to be closer to Geoffrey. He wanted to watch his son blossom into a successful performing artist whom he has actively supported and from whom he has derived great pride. His most recent, and final home sits on the Ottawa River, where Steven enjoyed many peaceful moments, during which he has found serenity, solace, and comfort.
Steven is survived by his son, Geoffrey Michaël Dollar, his former spouse, Johanne Richer, and will be greatly mourned by his parents, Gordon and Marilyn Dollar, his two brothers and their wives, Alan & Mary, Stewart & Yin as well as by his niece and nephews, Julia, Sean, and Justin. The extended Dollar family, located primarily in Southern Ontario, will equally cherish the memories they share with Steven, and mourn his loss.
He will be remembered for his kindness, his generosity, as well as for his distinct sense of humor and personality.
A visitation from 10 am to 11:30 am followed by the Funeral service will be held on Saturday, July 6th, 2019 at Shawn Jackson Funeral Home at 31 Elgin Street, St. Thomas, Ontario, with a reception to follow the service.
Steven will be laid to rest in the St-Thomas Cemetery in St-Thomas, Ontario.
