Steven Michael Ghiardi, 55, of S. River Dr., Gwinn, passed away unexpectedly early Wednesday morning, December 18, 2019 at his home.

Steve was born August 21, 1964 in Ishpeming to John E. ‘Jack’ and JoAnn M. (Mayo) Ghiardi and graduated from Gwinn High School, Class of 1983. He was employed for a short time at Big Boy in Marquette until his health prevented him from working.

Steve was a member of St. Anthony Catholic Church in Gwinn, the Keweenaw Bay Indian Community and was a proud member of AA where he enjoyed support from his fellow members and friends. He was avid sports fan, especially cheering for the Detroit Tigers, Green Bay Packers and listening to high school sports on the radio. Steve loved woodworking and his daily walk to the post office.

Surviving are his loving mother, JoAnn Ghiardi; his sister, Jodi (Jeremy) Smith of Marquette; nephew, Tyler (Kendra) Smith; aunts: Barbara, Dorothy, Karen and Dolores Mayo, and Marlene Damgaard; uncle, John (Doris) Mayo; numerous cousins and his special canine companion, Zoey.

He was preceded in death by his father in 2014; his brother Mark Ghiardi in 1966; and uncles: Bill, Bob, Donald and Ulie Mayo.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11:00 am on Monday, December 23rd at St. Anthony Catholic Church with Rev. Allen Mott officiating. Burial will be in the Gwinn Cemetery. The family will greet relatives and friends in St. Anthony’s Baraga Room from 9:30 am until the time of Mass at 11:00 am. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be directed in Steve’s memory to UPAWS or St. Vincent DePaul.
