Obituary:
BUXTON – Noble “Eugene” Steeves, 88, passed away peacefully in his sleep December 7, 2016 at the Veteran’s Administration Togus Springs Hospice in Augusta.
Eugene was born in Waterville, Maine, December 24, 1927 to Noble and Annie Steeves.
He grew up in Buxton and helped run the family gas station, graduating from Samuel D. Hanson High School in 1946. He then worked locally as a mechanic until he enlisted in the 8th Army in 1950.

Upon returning home, he married Kathleen L. Tapley in 1954. He worked as a woodsman for 15 years before becoming a diesel mechanic for 20 years. After retirement, he built a greenhouse and he and Kathleen ran a roadside vegetable stand, having been known to raise as many as 500 tomato plants in a season. Their children will never forget their strong work ethic.

You have all met again, someday we will meet again. Your son Bruce Steeves is taking the loss of you very hard and his mother Cathleen, and his brother Dennis. You were the last one that he had, he did not think that he would have to go threw this right off after his mother passing a year and 3 days ago. There isn't a moment in the day that goes by that he isn't thinking about all the good times that you all have had. It is too bad that you here for your sons birthday, you pass 4 days away from it and he is taking it very hard. But as we all know at this point you are in a better place and you are no longer hurting. We are all sending you and the rest of you lots of love up there please look down at my father and help him threw this as much as you can. Fly high with your wife, son, and many more of the family.
