Steven Michael Sarasin, 61, of Charlevoix, passed away on Monday, February 23, 2021. He was born on August 4, 1959 in Charlevoix, the son of Clayton Sr. and Reva (Steenbergh) Sarasin.
Steven graduated from Charlevoix High School, and went to work as a cook at the Holiday Inn as well as an excavating company before enlisting in the United States Military. Upon his discharge, Steven moved to Florida for a handful of years before returning home to Charlevoix. He tended bar at a couple of local restaurants, and eventually worked at Harbor Industries until he retired after over 20 years.
Steven was an avid outdoorsman. He loved to spend time in the woods hunting, or even just observing the animals in their natural habitat. He enjoyed deer hunting locally as well as traveling to the UP to bear hunt. He also liked fishing, camping, and building fires – all with his beloved dog, Spurt, at his side.
Steven is survived by his son, Hunter (Heather) Sarasin; two brothers, Butch (Sherry) Sarasin of East Jordan and Chris (Lisa) Sarasin of Charlevoix; his sister, Debra (Scott) Blanchard of Charlevoix; his granddaughter, Remi Sarasin; and his girlfriend, Deb Juralbal.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
Steven’s family has chosen to celebrate his life privately.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Charlevoix Area Humane Society.
Arrangements are in the care of the Winchester Chapel of Mortensen Funeral Homes. Please sign his online guestbook at www.mortensenfuneralhomes.com
