Steven E. Kearney, M.D., 66, passed away peacefully in his Ashburnham, Massachusetts home on August 30, 2016.

Steve was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and grew up in Midland, Michigan.  He relocated to Evergreen in 1978 and co-founded Conifer Medical Center where he was known as "a good, old-fashioned family doctor."

Family members described him as an eternal optimist, continually pursuing solutions to heal from a knee and spine injury in 2005.  

He enjoyed playing guitar on open mic nights at the Muddy Buck.

A celebration of Steve's life will be held at The Barn at Evergreen Memorial Park on Friday, December 30, 2016, at 3 pm.  Attendees are encouraged to bring their instruments.
