Stephen Paul Kauk

April 10, 1983 – July 3, 2022

Steve passed away peacefully at home on Sunday July 3, 2022, at the age of 39, after a fierce battle with cancer. Steve’s journey over the last five years demonstrated his relentless courage in facing life’s challenges with a smile.

Steve leaves behind his loving wife Amy Bartley Kauk and cherished daughter Claire Frances Kauk. He is sadly missed by his parents Eric & Kathy Kauk along with his parents-in-law Brian & Donna Bartley; brothers Sean Oates (Lori); Chris Kauk (Amy); and brother-in-law David Bartley (Megan). Steve will be lovingly remembered by his aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.

Steve was dedicated in all areas of his life and his selflessness was felt by all who knew him. Steve was always willing to go out of his way to help others. He was strong and never one to complain, even in the face of a terminal cancer diagnosis.

Throughout his life, Steve built many strong friendships. He was genuinely always there when you needed him. Steve’s friends thought the world of him and he valued them deeply.

Steve prioritized his family above all else. The values and integrity Steve held were instilled through his loving upbringing. Steve’s immense love for his wife and daughter will continue to be felt throughout their lives; he will always be part of them.

A celebration of Steve’s life will be held at The Bracebridge Fairgrounds on Wednesday July 13th from 11:00 am - 2:00 pm.
