Steve Hewson

May 1, 2018
With sorrow Steve passed away May 1, 2018. He left behind his sister Liza and nephews Jordan and Michael Petryk.

Steve was best known in the valley as the Chef at the Chemainus Theatre from 2004 to 2017, when he retired.

Watching employees grow and become friends, the growth of the Theatre and co-workers, suppliers and the so many guests that he would interact with and talk about food, were his passions.

Many of us could not help but get caught up in his excitement on how to take a simple food and make it better – and yes it was always better. He loved the menus, researching new foods and ideas on presentations.

Steve found a home in Chemainus and with the Chemainus Theatre. Please join us for a celebration of his life to be held at the Chemainus Theatre Playbill Dining room on Sunday, June 3 at 1:00 pm.
