Steven William Stine, 75, was born September 9, 1948 in Missoula, Montana and was called home Friday, January 26, 2024 at his home in Mesa, Arizona. There to greet him on the other side of the veil will be his parents, Carl and Betty Stine, along with many other family members. Left to carry on his legacy and traditions are his wife of 47 years Katherine “Ann”, and his six children: Jaime (Josh) Lyman, Kelly (Joe) Baker, Brooke (Mark) Groves, Megan (Joe) Liljenquist, Whitney (Chaz) Smith, Carly (Ross) Coelho and 15 grandchildren.  He is also survived by 4 siblings: Linda Herkins, Karen Castro, Jim Stine and Mark Stine. After 31 years of teaching and coaching (tennis and basketball) at Taylor Junior High, he retired to spend more time with family, enjoy life and to travel. He was a devoted husband, father and papa who was loved deeply by his wife, his 6 daughters and his grandchildren. Our fondest memories are of him boating on the lake with his family and friends. He also enjoyed adventure riding with his jeep or side by side. He was known as a hard worker all his life, always ready and willing to help one of his kids, a neighbor, or friends with anything they needed. He was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, never wavering, and enduring to the end.  The viewing will be Friday, February 16, at Bunker Funeral Home, 33 N. Centennial Way, Mesa 85201 from 7-9 pm. Flowers can be sent to Bunker’s Funeral Home address, if you wish, for the viewing and funeral the next day. The memorial service will be Saturday, February 17, at the LDS Lehi Stake Center, 1430 N. Grand Mesa, 85201 from 10-11:15 am. Open House will be 5-8 pm at Steve and Ann’s home that same evening. Desserts will be provided and a chance to visit with Ann and the family.

  • I’m so sorry to hear about Steve! He was always good to me and my family! Steve and Ann moved and we moved to Gilbert and lost touch, but I always thought about your family! He will surely be missed! Wade and Lanell
