Obituary: Steve Russell

Steve Russell "Still Riding" He was born Steven Gill Russell in Salt Lake City, May 24, 1952 and passed away September 10, 2005. He graduated from Granite High School 1970, other achievements included a Brown Belt in Kempo Karate and a black belt in Tae Kwon Do. He pursued his career with Technical schooling in the Steel Fabrication Industry. He later went on to run Structural Steel for 10 years and ultimately opened up his own steel business in 1986 where he and his wife have owned and operated Steel Works Inc. for the past 20 years. Steve was also an avid hunter of ducks and bucks. But his true passion was always searching for the trophy elk with his best friend Bob Larson. Even on the day he passed away, he was found in his camouflage sitting on his 4-wheeler with his hands gripped to the handle bars, ready to ride. He was a devoted family man and spent countless hours helping anyone who needed it. Everyone who knew Steve, knew all you had to do was talk to him and you had an instant friend. Steve is survived by his best friend and wife, Nikki; mother, Carol Russell; two sons, Chris and Brett Russell, and his daughter, Georgia (Allan) Davidson; three sisters, Patty Russell, Dawn (David) Lucas, Sue (Scott) Knaub and brother, Shane (Tammy) Russell. A special thank you goes out to all of our employees at Steel Works who have dedicated themselves through their continued employment to help Steve's legacy live on.
