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

Steven was born on Dec. 25, 1954. He was the son of Thomas L. Vages Jr. and Dona-Maria Vages.

He was born on Cape Cod where he lived until he was eight, and then moved to Marshfield, where he lived for several years before moving back to Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard. He and his family moved to Martha’s Vineyard where he could live out his passion, 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 always happy and content. His humor was infectious. If you were blessed enough to ever meet Steven, you were surely never to forget him. He could 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 his grandparents, Thomas L. Vages Sr. and Mary Virginia Vages of Centerville, and Lt. Colonel Harry I. Fernandes and Rosa B. Fernandes of Hyannis, by his mother in law Marcia Wright and father in law William Wright. Steven is survived by his wife Beth, his daughters Holly and Tyler, his son Jeffery, his granddaughter Piper, and his children’s nanny and forever daughter, Antoinette Lattimore of Dublin, Ireland, and many nieces and nephews. Steven was the eldest brother of Mark Vages, Lisa Vages and Christina Vages, and brother in law to Scott Frank and Marilda Frank. He is survived by many friends on Martha’s Vineyard.
