Steven A. Morin, 49, of Fogelsville, formerly of South Canaan, passed away on Monday morning, May 27, 2019 at Lehigh Valley Hospice after a valiant battle against pancreatic cancer. His beloved wife, Erin (Baxter) Morin survives him.
Born April 29, 1970 in Peckville, he was the son of Felicia M. Morin of South Canaan and the late Allan J. Morin who died in 2012.
Steve is also survived by two beautiful daughters, Amara and Hailey, both at home; a brother Michael Morin and his wife Bonnie of LeClaire, Iowa and their daughters Brooke and Logan Marie; and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and a large extended family.
Steve graduated from Western Wayne High School in the class of 1988. He proudly served in the U.S. Navy from 1989-1993. He served on the USS JFK CV-67 and was attached to the squadron VAW-126 and was actively deployed during Desert Shield, Desert Storm, and Operation Just Cause. Steve shared a special bond with his fellow brothers on that ship; it was a bond that will never break.
Steve worked for Lowe and Moyer International where he was a sales representative.
Steve enjoyed hunting, fishing, and recreation target shooting. He took total joy in cooking and tasting everything whether it be inside or an outdoor barbeque, surrounded by family and friends. Steve also was proud of crafting some pretty incredible beer concoctions.
His most precious times were spent with wife and daughters. He loved trivia and scrabble games and taking long walks with his family. Bedtime stories with the girls and endless hours of making up stories were a gift that will be forever treasured. Steve was a deeply devoted husband, and the best Dad ever. He was a loving and caring son and brother. Steve will be missed dearly, but will live forever in our hearts.
Through the Gift of Life, Steve was able to give the gift of sight.
