Our beloved Cameron Ethan Steck died in an automobile accident on the morning of Sunday, October 6, 2019. His death was tragic, heart-breaking and unexpected – and his passing will leave a void in this world that won’t quickly heal.

Cameron was born on May 25, 1997, in Salt Lake City, Utah – moving to Mesa, Arizona with his parents when he was young. Cameron was a beautiful, bright and charming boy who grew into a charismatic and lovable young man. At the time of his death, he was a student at Chandler Gilbert Community College within arm’s reach of his associate degree.

It is impossible to capture Cameron’s essence in an obituary. He was a beautiful spirit. He looked after the downtrodden; he loved deeply and was loved by everyone who knew him. He loved hanging out with his friends over coffee. He enjoyed music and snowboarding. His smile and laughter were contagious. He was filled with hope for the future and had been recently making plans for continuing his college career and taking a trip during the Christmas break.

Cameron was hilarious and warm and fearless and resilient. He had a gift for enchanting and endearing himself to teachers, employers, friends and strangers. He was adored as a son, brother, nephew, cousin, and friend – and Cameron loved his family in return.

Cameron is survived by his parents, Ethan and Erin Steck; his younger brothers, Gavin and Jonah; his grandmother Sahndra Marshall; and countless cousins, aunts, and uncles. He is predeceased by his grandmother, Mary Steck, who loved him beyond words.

Condolences

  • Cameron was such a light in my life, and nothing could dim that light even after his life on earth. For years Cameron let me confide in him, he gave me peace through so many hardships. He struggled with his own battles for so long but he was always optimistic telling me that “We will get together with our families to bbq and sit back and watch our kids play around together and hold our spouses hand and we’ll look back at this time in our lives and remember how alone and lost we felt, but also how those experiences gave us the strength to push through so we could finally look for happiness and love in the right places and become the women and man that we want to be.” His laugh, his smile and his energy was so contagious and it’s something that will always be cherished. Erin and Ethan, your son was such an amazing soul and I’m so incredibly sadden for your family. I pray for brighter days.

    I didn’t know Cameron. But that doesn’t mean I don’t feel immense pain in reading about his untimely passing. He sounds like he was a very loving & warmhearted person who had his demons, but still made better the lives of so many. My heart aches for you and your family & our family will keep you all in our prayers while we support you as you celebrate his life. I love you Ethan – stay strong brother. God loves you all even more. Keep the faith.

    I LOVED this young man since he was how old? Maybe 10?? His smile brought a smile to my face every time I saw him. Such a polite young man who was always willing to accept a kiss on the cheek which earned a huge hug and love you Sister Arrington in return.. OH How I will miss his face., That cheeky grin.. Know we love you Steck family.. Here for you always.. xxx

  • Ethan, Erin, Gavin, and Jonah,
    How my heart is broken for you. I know that your lives will never be the same. I pray that you may feel the love of so many people around you and of your Heavenly Parents, and that you will be able to see beauty and experience joy even in your pain. How grateful I am to know that we will be reunited one day with the loved ones who are lost to us for a season. Love to you all.

  • Such a huge loss to your family. My prayers and thoughts are with you. I keep hearing what a warm person he was so now is a shining star. He is with the lord now.

  • Love to all the Steck family… especially to Cameron who was a great primary kid and wonderful young man.

  • Cameron Steck was an absolute gem. He loved so deeply and so often wanted nothing more than to help take people’s pain away. Cam was a best friend so many of us. He came into my life at the darkest of times and showed me there was a light. He told me life was worth trying at and then he then made me laugh until my ribs hurt. Cameron wanted the best for everyone, and what a beautiful impression that is to leave on the world. There are no words for the way this will be changing the lives of so many, his warm smile will be so deeply missed. Erin and Ethan, Cameron brought life to so many people with his beautiful heart. He will be missed so dearly and I’m praying for your families healing.

    Dear Steck family,
    My deepest condolences to your family. I didn’t know Cameron personally, but I have talked to him maybe once or twice. Although, I would notice him every day with his radiant style of clothing. When I found out he had passed, I was heart broken. My heart really does go out to you guys. Especially something happening so suddenly & not being able to prepare for it. I just had a baby & to think about her being taken away from me like that is what truly makes me sympathize with how you guys must feel. I’m not going to say it gets easier, but you have his beautiful light that left trails to live with & great memories to remember. I too am a member of the church, which is what makes it harder. God surely has him wrapped in His arms tightly & is looking down on you & your family. My deepest deepest condolences & much love.
