SHARE Obituary: Lynn Flint Steed


Our dear sweet husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, bro-ther, uncle and friend, Lynn Flint Steed, 74, peacefully returned to his Heavenly Father, Jan. 13, 2002, surrounded by his loving family due to complications from surgery.

Lynn was born Jan. 15, 1927 in Clearfield, Utah, in his parents' home, the youngest son of 10 children born to Charles and Mabel Steed. He married his high school sweetheart, Amber Jean Talbot, on January 15, 1947 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. After living for 12 years in Clearfield, working as an electrician and aircraft mechanic and having three children, he and Amber moved to Southern California, where their fourth child was born. Lynn worked in the television and movie industry and later moved to Northern California where he worked for over 25 years in the Health Spa industry. After retiring, Lynn and Amber moved to St. George, Utah, where they spent the past four years.

He was known by all as a highly skilled, hard working man who could make or fix anything.

He spent his life caring for his loving companion, family and others, and set a perfect example of humility, kindness, and unselfish Christ-like service to others for his family to follow. Lynn was always a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in several callings including as a member of the bishopric in two wards. His joy was his family, serving others, photography, woodworking, traveling, and his home and garden.

Survivors include his wife, Amber, of St. George; four sons, Randy (wife, Wendy) Steed of Eagle, Idaho; Rick (wife, Jill) Steed of Sandy, Utah; Dean (wife, Julie) Steed of Las Vegas, Nevada; and Kip (wife, Angie) Steed of Idaho Falls; 19 grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; three brothers, Jerro (Wife, Elma) Steed and Don (wife, Marjorie) Steed all of Clearfield; Jay (wife, Pat) Steed of Wenatchee, Washington; and a sister, Verla (husband, Grant) Olsen of Clearfield.
