WILLIAMS, Stephen Mark:
On July 8, 2018, peacefully at Nurse Maude Hospice surrounded by his loving family, aged 45 years. Dearly loved husband and best friend of Anthea and "father" to his fur babies Freda and Colin. Loved son and son-in-law of Martin and Jane Williams, and Paddy and Roy Craig. Admired brother and brother-in-law of Matthew, and Robert. Loving and fun uncle of Annaleisse, and Isaac.
Steve's caring, happy and positive nature affected all of those around him and we are all so much the richer for knowing him. He will forever remain in our hearts.
Special thanks to all of his Oncology colleagues for providing such loving care and support throughout his journey and latterly to Julia and the team at Nurse Maude Hospice for caring for him so wonderfully in his final days. Messages may be addressed to The Family of the late Stephen Williams, c/- PO Box 39001, Christchurch 8545. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Nurse Maude Hospice would be appreciated and may be made at the service. A celebration of Steve's life will be held in our Westpark Chapel, 467 Wairakei Road, Burnside, on Saturday, July 14, at 10.00am. A link to the live webcast is available on the obituaries page at
