BLUE MOUNDS - It is with great sadness that the family of Steven James Convery announce his unexpected passing on Thursday, Jan. 19, 2023, at his home in Blue Mounds, Wis. He was born to parents, Cecil “Bob” and Meryl (Eggins) Convery on June 15, 1977, in Lismore, New South Wales in Australia.

Steven graduated in 1996 from Richmond River High School in Lismore, Australia. Always eager to learn, Steven would strike up conversations with older people he met and ask them what they would do differently if they could go back in time. He kept hearing the same advice. I wish I would have traveled when I was your age. So that is exactly what he did! He took the money he had earned picking macadamia nuts and traveled. He spent time in Japan and the United States until he ran out of money and headed back home to Australia.
