Landriault, Steven Arthur

It is with much sadness we announce the death of our eldest brother, Steven Arthur Landriault (Steve) Steve was born on April 14th, 1950, to Marion Augusta Landriault (Steinke) and Michael Antoine (Andy) Landriault. Steve graduated from Gr. 13 at Lively High School and attended Laurentian University to obtain a BA in history. For a short while, he worked as a miner at Falconbridge Nickel Mines (now Glencore) and then enrolled in the stationery engineering program at Cambrian College.  Upon completion of that, he obtained employment at the Spruce Falls Power and Paper Company (later Tembec) in Kapuskasing Ont. and worked there until his retirement in 2008.  While working, he helped teach some courses for those enrolled in a stationery engineer program through Northern College. He then moved to Kirkland Lake with his wife, Laura, to live closer to her family.  He was employed by the Beaver House First Nations band as the Lands and Resources Coordinator for Forestry, a job he very much enjoyed until retirement in 2014. Steve was heartbroken and long grieved his beloved wife, Laura, when she died tragically in 2014. Steve was many things: an avid reader especially of history books and the bible, a solver of crossword puzzles, a collector of board games and vinyl records. Steve is best described as a man of few words, soft spoken, a kind gentle soul, never mean, who often helped others in need.  He definitely danced to the beat of his own drum, living life on his terms. Steven was predeceased by his parents. He is survived by his sister, Valerie (George), brother Todd (Kathryn), sister Leanne (Curtis), brother Keith (Joan), brother Terry and numerous nieces and nephews.  He will be missed. A Celebration of Life will be held in the summer. If you so, choose donations in Steve’s memory can be made directly to a charity of your choice.

  1. Steven was a good friend all through my years at Laurentian University. I believe I met him during Frosh week of first year, possibly through his cousin Greg S., and the friendship continued. I wish I had put in more effort to keep in touch after those years.

    Heartfelt condolences to all those who loved him and will miss him.
