Steve Aylward Obituary – Death : We are deeply saddened to learn that St. Louis U. High teacher Steve Aylward of St. Louis, Missouri, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on October 7, 2021 at age 64. It was reported that he died leaving families, friends and loved ones in great grief and fear.
He was a perfect example of what it means to be a wonderful person. He had a calming presence and was extremely kind, he touched the hearts of so many, and was an inspiration to everyone who knew him.
Causes of Steve Aylward’s Death…
At the moment, no information has been received from the family as they are observing their difficult times. The circumstances surrounding the actual cause of death had not been made public as at the time of writing this report. Investigation is still on-going to know the actual cause of death.
In 2006, at the time of Aylward’s retirement from SLUH, Tim Huether ’06 of the Prep News wrote an extensive article about his career and impact on students. (You can see article on page 9 and 10).
As everyone knows, he leaves behind the pride & joy of his existence, families and friends. His loss will have a significant impact on our entire college community. Steve’s commitment to his loved ones and his love of learning has forever positively impacted the lives of many.
The little reminders that cause tears today will turn into little reminders that make us sad and then those little reminders will eventually make us smile and remember Steve just as he would have wanted us to-with love, a grin and maybe a cold one.
Please pray for the repose of the soul of longtime SLUH teacher Steve Aylward ’64, who died today. We thank Mr. Aylward for impacting the lives of so many Jr. Bills. Read about his remarkable career in a 2006 Prep News article: https://t.co/LhtGS9hE71 #ManForOthers #AMDG pic.twitter.com/jzfdBZbbfM
