Steven Casavant

February 6, 1955 — March 13, 2024

Steven Casavant, aka DJ Pirate Steve, passed away in his apartment peacefully on March 13, 2024 with his partner by his side. Steve was born in Glendale, California on February 6, 1955. William Brogan and Steve were partners for 26 years. Steve's younger brother Scott lives in Bakersfield, California. Steve had a happy childhood and remained close to his mom until she passed away in 2015. Steve was a brother to William's two sisters and William's mom became his second mother.

Steve's life journey was filled with more than most people experience in a lifetime, both good and bad. Steve was sweet, kind, and brave. His music was his ministry and his way to share joy. Steve also loved his cat Wiwi, watching "The Price Is Right," staying fit, church, sharing Madonna with his partner, and going biking. Steve was loved and will be missed.

A celebration of life will be held Saturday, April 20, at 2 p.m. at St. Francis Lutheran Church, 152 Church Street (between Duboce and 14th streets). There will be interment of the ashes and a meal afterward. Donations are welcome for "Casavant memorial service."
