Steve Parton has passed away

Obituary: Musician and businessman Steve Parton was ‘full of life’ | TheSpec.com

The Dundas resident, who died March 11, 2021 at age 49, wrote two books about his battle with kidney cancer after he was diagnosed with it in 2013.

Steve was the son of Andie Parton with whom Lynn co-authored many books in the early 2000s.   He also collaborated with Lynn Johnston on her three comic strips songs, which I always thought was one of the coolest things.  His music definitely elevated Lynn's lyrics.

Here's to you Steve Parton.  I salute your life and your mark on the Foobiverse.

Lynn last made reference to Steve Parton in this writing from 07-10-2017, which made no reference to his cancer or his relationship with Lynn, but instead concentrated on how evil her on-line fans were.

Hopefully, if Lynn writes something about Steve, it will be more about him than the last things she wrote.
