"I was born February 22, 1944, in Berkeley, California to Owen Morrell and Alpha Dietz Clark, who preceded me to Paradise in 1995 and 1996. I was raised in Ogden, Utah. I graduated from Ogden High School in 1962, and Weber State University in 1968. I served in the California mission from 1964-1966. In 1968, DeAnn Jensen and I were married in the Logan temple. We brought forth six children: Sheri (Michael) Rokus, David (Melanie) Clark, Nanette (John) Allred, Janna (David) Astin, Kaylene (Nate) Cotton, and Katie Clark; twenty-two grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren. Siblings include Roger, Carolyn, Richard, and Nancy. In 1972, I graduated from Arizona State University with a Master's in Social Work and worked for Davis County for 31 years, retiring in 2007. I had many Church callings, but the most special was with DeAnn, when we served as a senior missionary couple assigned to the Young Single Adults in Oxford, England, 2010-2012. We enjoyed serving in the Ogden Temple from 2014-2018. DeAnn and I have been on eight cruises, and have traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and Europe. I have had many medical issues, including the effects of polio since the age of four, so John 16:33 really applies. For me and you, hopefully Alma 46:39 will as well."
In honor of Steve, his loving family and friends dedicate this scripture to his exemplary life; “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith” (2 Timothy 4:7).
