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.
