Predeceased by his parents Dale Haley in 2004 and Shirley Haley in 2009.
Survived by his daughter Sasha Haley (Mickey), grandson Tanner, sisters Barbara Chapman and Pauline Lyons (Dennis), brothers David (Leona), and Gerald (Shelley), nephews Justin, Jeremy, Ryan, David Jr, Matthew, and Robert, and niece Ashley. Stephen spent all of his life, except for his first year, in the Comox Valley. Many of his friends all lifetime friends.
Stephen worked in kitchens starting at the Old House Restaurant when he was 10 years old doing part shifts. He started full shifts when he was 14 and stayed there till the Old House closed. After this he started working immediately at the Kingfisher where he worked until his passing.
Stephen was a trout fisherman and he fished for many years at Maple Lake and other places but his favourite was always Maple Lake. Stephen was a 7-11 regular and had coffee there for years with the 7-11 gang who stood outside and chatted with everyone that came by.
No flowers please.
Stephen will be put to rest with his parents.
