Obituary

Doctor Steven Bilyk, loving husband to Sharon Young, passed away peacefully with his family by his side on June 20th, 2024 at the age of 79.  Steven loved being surrounded by his family, his wife Sharon, son Nicholas, daughter-in-law Marie Claire, daughter Melissa, son in-law David, and his grandchildren Clementine, Jude, Kamryn and Briar.

Steven was a Family Doctor practicing in Toronto who was very devoted to his patients. His love for playing golf, being involved in horse racing, travelling, fishing, taking his children to various sports or activities, all kept him busy over the years. Steven also loved to dance and socialize and had a great sense of humour.

Family was so important to him that over the years Steven kept a close tab on everyone by conducting what the grandchildren call "the interview". During family visits he would sit in his chair and call upon each family member to talk about their lives, their school life, professional life, love life, personal life and would then share his thoughts and opinions on what was said, all inspired by love.

Steven will be missed by his family, his nieces and nephews who are both near and far, his friends Stan and Elaine, his "group" from Woodbine Racetrack, his many patients over the years and his many cats.

Thank you to Dr Sandra Marcus and the care Team at Scarborough Grace Hospital for their care, guidance and support over the past few weeks.  Thank you to the wound care and home care Nurses and PSWs who cared for him for many years when he was at home.

The family will be holding a private service in memory of Steven. In his honour donations can be made to torontocatrescue.ca

I remember back in the 1970s Dr Bilyk took very good care of my grandfather, Karl Pieplow. With sympathy.

I was talking with my daughter on the phone when I saw the obituary. You delivered her June 22, 1990. It was a long labour and you were hoping that I would deliver in time for you to get to the Blue Jays game - lol (and I did!) You were a very caring and compassionate doctor and I missed you when you retired. My thoughts and prayers to your family.

We are so sorry to hear of uncle Steven's passing. I can still remember listening to "putin' on the ritz" in his maroon interior car" when I was 15 and working for him. And I still have the picture at Elgin House of him holding up the tiniest fish ever caught. Love you all very much. He will be missed.
