It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that we, the family, announce the sudden and unexpected passing of our beloved husband, father, brother, grandfather and uncle, Stephen Hilton Underhill (nickname “Flubur” to his many friends), on Thursday, January 14, 2021, at Plaster Rock, NB, at the age of 59 years.

Born in Moncton, NB, on November 17, 1961, he resided in Blackville, NB. He was pre-deceased by his parents, the late Hilton and Mona (Hare) Underhill; Grandchild Nolan Underhill.

He is survived by his partner, Shelly (Greely); sons Trevor (Chelsie) of Quarryville, NB, and Chad (Faye) of Mactaquac, NB; brother Shawn of Sydney, NS; sister Rosanne Pleadwell and brother-in-law Dale Harris of Blackville; grandchildren Claire, Sonny, and; niece Melissa Mountain of Grey Rapids, NB; and niece Ashley Underhill of Saskatoon, SK.

Stephen was a graduate of Miramichi Valley High School (1979) in Miramichi, NB, and the New Brunswick Community College (1980) in Moncton, NB. He was a Journeyman Welder by trade with a strong and meticulous work ethic. Stephen took tremendous pride in the quality of his work. He enjoyed passing down his experiences and knowledge to junior welders on various jobs throughout New Brunswick, Newfoundland, BC, Alberta and Saskatchewan. No matter where his travels took him, Stephen always looked forward to coming home to Blackville where he could be close to his family and many friends.

He was an avid outdoorsman and a “country boy” from a very young age and loved spending time in the woods and exploring nature. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, building camps, trapping and boating. Stephen often bragged about his cooking skills and enjoyed making meals and BBQ for friends, family and co-workers. Above all, his greatest pleasure was spending time with his two sons and two grandchildren, whom he missed greatly when working away from home. Stephen was always caring and helpful to family members and he had many friends who appreciated his help and “can do” attitude.

The family will receive relatives and friends from Northumberland Funeral Home on Monday, January 18, 2021, from 2 to 4 pm and 6 to 8 pm. Please note; facial coverings are required and social distancing guidelines will be followed.
A private funeral service will take place on Tuesday, January 19, 2021, at 11 am, from Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Blackville, with Father Gerry Laskey officiating. Interment will take place later in the spring.

As expressions of sympathy, donations may be made to the Miramichi Salmon Association or to a memorial of one’s choice.

Funeral arrangements are in the care of Northumberland Funeral Home, 102 Pleasant St, telephone (506) 622-7741
