Steven Vages


Steven Thomas Vages of West Tisbury and Cape Cod died Tuesday, March 17, 2015, at his home on Cape Cod. He was 60.

Steven, the son of Thomas L. Vages Jr. and Dona-Maria Vages, was born on Dec. 25, 1954, on Cape Cod, where he lived until he was 8 years old. His family moved to Marshfield where he lived for several years, until he moved back to Cape Cod and the Island.

Steven and his family moved to Martha’s Vineyard, where he could live out his passions: boats and fishing. Steven loved to be on the water fishing at any time, day or night. He was a master at everything he did, from development to construction, to oil, to computers. Steven was a true diamond in the rough. No matter what the situation might be, he would always find the humor in everything. He was happy and content. His humor was infectious. If you were blessed enough to ever meet Steven, you will surely never forget him. He would make you laugh until you cried.

The world has lost a great man, son, husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend. Steven will be greatly missed, and always remembered for his laughter and amazing smile.

He was predeceased by grandparents Thomas L. Vages Sr. and Mary Virginia Vages of Centerville and Lt. Colonel Harry I. Fernandes and Rosa B. Fernandes of Hyannis; mother-in-law Marcia Wright; and father-in-law William Wright. Steven is survived by his wife Beth, his daughters Holly and Tyler, son Jeffery, and his granddaughter Piper; younger brother Mark T. Vages; sisters Lisa Vages and Christina Vages; brother-in-law Scott Frank; sister-in-law Marilda Frank; his children’s nanny and forever daughter, Antoinette Lattimore of Dublin, Ireland; many nieces and nephews; and many friends on Martha’s Vineyard.

Services were held Friday at John Lawrence Funeral Home in Marstons Mills.
