Steven C. “Steve” Litke, beloved son of Gale Litke and proud father to Mackenzie and Brett Litke, 53, of Plainville, passed away unexpectedly on April 24, 2017. He is now reunited with his father, George E. Litke, “Paw” who predeceased him in 2011.
Steve was born on May 10, 1963 in Bristol, son to Gale (Monsees) Litke, of Plainville, and the late George E. Litke. He was a lifelong resident of Plainville who attended local schools graduating from Plainville High School in 1981. Steve was an outstanding mason, landscaper, and contractor. He loved fishing, snowmobiling, hunting and above all spending time with his family. He had the biggest heart and was the type of man that would put anyone first and himself last. There are not too many people who were as giving and hardworking as Steve. As a father, son, brother, nephew, uncle, godfather and best friend to many, Steve will be dearly missed as those who knew him cherish the memories he leaves behind.
