EAST ANDOVER – Steven Joel Fyrberg, 61, of East Andover, died on Thursday, Aug. 17, at Rumford Hospital after a lifelong battle with diabetes.

He was born in Ipswich, Massachusetts, on Aug. 20, 1955, the son of Judith and the late Roland Fyrberg. After spending summers on Richardson Lake, the Fyrberg family moved to East Andover in 1969, where Steve lived the rest of his life. He attended Telstar High School and graduated in the Class of 1973. After graduation, he worked in the logging industry and as a local carpenter. Steve would go on to build a home for his family on Farmers Hill Road. The family home was a source of great pride for Steve. He cut every log, planed every board and showed his children how to nail down sub floors and gather stones for the chimney. Together, they built the log home from the ground up.

Steve’s life passions were his children and boating and camping trips. His favorite spot was Richardson Lake — he spent many weekends up to the lake with his family and his dog, Maggie.

He was predeceased by his brothers, Clay and Glen Fyrberg.

He is survived by his mother, Judith Fyrberg of East Andover; his sister, Heidi and husband, Michael Bean, of Milton Township; his children, daughter, Liza Fyrberg and boyfriend, Mitchell Perry, of Newport; son, Forest and wife, Kim, of Waterville; daughter, Shannon and husband, Michael Klein, of Lake Placid, N.Y.; their mother, Donna and husband, Donald Leveille, of Shelburne, N.H.; five grandchildren, Lucas, Annika, and Keira Fyrberg, and Eleanor and Hazel Klein; along with many nieces and nephews and great-nieces and -nephews.

He was a devoted father and friend. He lived a simple life and enjoyed taking his time. He will be remembered for his love of the great outdoors and adventurous spirit, which his family carries on in his memory.
