Steven John Stark, age 69, of Cedar Hills Utah, passed away from a sudden heart attack on Wednesday, February 7, 2018. He was born on March 18, 1948 to Henry John Stark and Bertha Mae Rasmussen Stark in Rupert, Idaho. He attended local schools around Minidoka County, graduating from Raft River High School in Malta, Idaho. He attended Idaho State University and graduated from Brigham Young University in 1973 with a degree in Computer Science. In 1983 he earned an MBA from the University of Phoenix. He worked at Beehive, Radix, KALL Radio and Eaton-Kenway Companies in the Salt Lake area, then 6 years at Rapistan DeMag in Grand Rapids, Michigan; all in the Automated Material Handling Industry as a Computer Software Engineer. Returning to the Salt Lake area, he worked for Applied Materials and Software Technology Group as a Research and Development Specialist, and ended his career at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

He was a loving husband to Lorrie Lou Nelson whom he married in the Idaho Falls Temple on July 12, 1968. They loved to travel and had many opportunities to do so on job sites and with family vacations. He raised 6 wonderful children in West Valley City, Utah. Steven was a man of few words, but showed great love for his children, grandchildren and many others. He was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, serving faithfully in many capacities. He really enjoyed being a “Cub Scouter,” a Ward Clerk, Primary Teacher and High Priest Group Leader. He had a strong testimony of the Gospel and loved people, was always willing to serve anyone at anytime. He loved drawing, oil painting and playing his Ukulele. He enjoyed retirement, while serving at the Mount Timpanogos Temple and at the Charleston Assisted Living Center in Cedar Hills, Utah, doing genealogy and spending time with family. Steven will be greatly missed for his quick wit and family jokes.
