Support 7 was requested for a funeral service honouring Toronto Fire Capt. Stephen Forsey in late February.  Our volunteers dutifully attended, providing beverages and snacks for attendees throughout the service. Capt. Forsey’s passing was determined to be a line of duty death. The Greater Toronto Multiple Alarm Association expresses its sincere condolences to the Forsey family.

His obituary from the R.S. Kane Funeral Home reads as follows:

It is with profound sadness that the family announces the sudden passing on February 25, 2017 at the age of 52. Beloved husband of Dianne, loving father of Renee and Brandon. Dear son of Philip and Patricia Forsey and cherished brother of Karen Forsey (Sean and Spencer Perry) and Philip Forsey (Meagan and Philip Forsey). He will be deeply missed by the many members of his extended family.

Steve loved his work as a Captain with the Toronto Fire Department and lived his life to the fullest everyday. He enjoyed fishing, boating, hunting and cooking and shared his love of swimming as a coach. Most of all, Steve loved his family both at home and at work.
