PO1 Stephen Labelle, CD (Retired) RCCS

30 Jun 22

It is with great sadness, we announce the passing of PO1 Labelle On June 30, 2022.

His dedicated service in both the SIGINT and Cyber communities, has and always will be a positive influence to all those around him. He has dutifully served his country and will always remain part of our family.

Steve is survived by his children James and Thomas (children of Laurie MacMillan), his parents Dora and Tony, his sisters Karen (Christopher), Lisa (John), his brother Mike (Shari) and his nieces and nephew. He is predeceased by his father Ralph.

Steve was born on August 14, 1975, in Montreal, Quebec.

Steve was active and was always in search of understanding why and how things worked the way they did. He loved golfing, hockey, biking, travelling, exploring new things, and spending time with friends and family. He loved being a father to James and Thomas and was passionate about teaching them new things. They were his greatest love and the hardest thing for him to leave behind.

He had a distinguished military career with the Canadian Armed Forces since 1993 until he could no longer stand his post. Throughout that time, he had the opportunity to travel to various places across the world and was dedicated to his work, leading others, and keeping our country safe.

A memorial service for Steve is scheduled for Tuesday July 12, 2022, at Beechwood Cemetery in Ottawa, ON. Friends and family are invited to arrive at 12pm where a memorial service will take place at 1pm followed by a burial ceremony and a reception from 2:30-4:30 pm.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to ALS Canada, in memory of Steve. http://support.alsevents.ca/stephenlabelle
