The family of Steven L Densley wish to celebrate his life as we mourn his passing. Despite multiple health problems he cherished life until the morning of Friday the 2nd of February, 2024. Steve was a resident of Layton, Utah. He was born on September 5, 1945, in the LDS Hospital in Salt Lake City. He was the 5th child of William Melvin Densley and DeVone Olaine Jensen Densley.
He leaves us in sorrow, his wife, Cheryl, his sister, Sharon, 4 children, Shaun, Heather, Matt, Cory. Adopted in-laws, Gary, Pam, and Jessica. Also 5 grandchildren, Ethan, Zana, Liam, Belle, and Selina.
Steve got his master’s degree in Electrical Engineering and worked for over 30 years for Boeing doing multiple jobs in the field of rocket science that too few of us understand. After he retired, he spent his time doing the things he loved, like helping his children fix and repair (anything) their houses and cars. He loved doing favors for the people in his ward. To relax, he read books. He liked murder mysteries, spy novels, and non-fiction histories. He was a jack of all trades and master of one. He built his own house. He fixed his own cars.
He was a man of strong faith. He testified many times of his faith in his Savior, Jesus Christ. The thing he loved most in his life was his wife, Cheryl. Most of the actions taken in his life were to make Cheryl happy. He many times went against his own preferences to do what she wanted. His final concerns were that Cheryl would be cared for.
Steve lived all his life in the United States. However, he was able to travel. After a 2 1/2 year Mission to Germany for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, he was able to tour Europe for several weeks. Later, after retirement, he toured Europe and Alaska with his wife. He enjoyed watching home and car repair shows on television with his family.
We are in pain that we will not see him again in this life. Energy in the universe is constant. It just changes forms. He will live on in this life in our hearts and memories. He will be greatly missed.
We would like to thank the medical professionals at Davis Hospital, Tanner Clinic, the Layton Police and Layton Fire Departments for their caring support and assistance.
