Stephen William (Steve) Barden, age 72, of Camano Island passed away unexpectedly Sunday Sept. 4, 2022, in Rhemes-Notre-Dame, Italy.

Steve grew up in Seattle and later resided many years in La Conner and Camano Island. He received a Nursing degree from BTC and enjoyed working for Warm Beach Senior Community as a nurse before retiring.

Steve would always do anything for his friends, family, or community and loved spending time with them. He lived life to the fullest and enjoyed watching the Seattle Mariners, taking care of his many bonsai trees, gardening, cooking, hiking, and traveling the world. He was always up for any adventure, climbing Mt Rainier, backpacking the 500-mile Camino de Santiago from France to Spain, paragliding, or just riding the Expedition Everest rollercoaster at Disney world.

He is survived by his wife of 51 years, Pam; children, Brittany (spouse Scott) and Robert; grandson, Corbin; brothers, Bryce, and Chuff (spouse Carolyn); sister-in-law, Karen (spouse Bill); nieces and nephews, May, Case, Heidi, Maddy, Joseph, and Richard. He was preceded in death by his parents, Robert, and Marilu Barden.

He will be forever loved and forever missed.

Funeral services will be held Saturday, Oct. 1 at 10:30 a.m., at Sacred Heart Church of La Conner with a reception to follow. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Steve's life.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to Stanwood Food Bank, Tri-Parish Food Bank, or Catholic Community Services.
