Stephen “Steve” Douris
Stephen “Steve” Douris was taken from us on Saturday February 29, 2020, at the age of 45.
Steve was born in Alberta, Canada on May 9, 1974 to parents Earl and Debra Douris. He moved with his family to the United States as a teenager. He had lived in several different areas before settling down in Henderson, NV. Steve had a longtime passion for cooking and made this his career. He graduated from Le Cordon Bleu in 2012 and worked at various fine dining restaurants along the Las Vegas strip. He had dreamed of opening his own family run restaurant and was studying for a business degree prior to his passing.
He is survived by his wife, Tinka, and their three children, Stephen, Iolite and Chloe, of Las Vegas, NV; his parents, Earl & Debra Douris, and sister, Tara Douris, of Henderson, NV; Maternal grandmother, May McAndrew, and many beloved aunts, uncles & cousins, from Alberta, Canada.
Steve enjoyed spending time with his family, fine dining, rockhounding, creating jewelry pieces and luxury cars.
Steve was an intelligent, kind hearted man, who long suffered from mental illness. Through his struggles he always loved his family dearly. He will be missed by all who knew him.
Steve I still cannot believe you are gone. I never thought that last September would be our final visit. From traveling the country on road trips to days of working the night shift together or sharing a cocktail you were a good friend. My only regret is that I wasn’t able to come visit you sooner. It is with heavy heart that I say goodbye to you my brother. Until we meet again. Much love to you and the entire family. Go with god, you are at peace.
I am so sorry for the loss of a beautiful but misanderstanded soul! Cooking and loving food. Senseless death! Canada has many free programs for the mentally ill. Why not the States? Why was he gunned down by police? I love the entire Douris and McAndrew family. Stay strong. Prayers from Canada!
Our hearts go out to all of you. We will cherish the memories of years gone by, especially when all the kids were young!
I am so sorry for the loss of my friend. My condolences to his entire family. I had many fun times with Steve and many long talks on the phone and weekend visits once he and his family moved to Nevada. He was always a character. He was loved and will be missed.
SO SORRY LOVE YOU GUYS PRAYERS
