Obituary: Steven Douglas Crittenden

Steven Douglas Crittenden 1970 ~ 2005 Steven Douglas Crittenden, beloved son, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin and friend finished his journey on Earth September 21, 2005. He was called back following a recent surgery. Steven was welcomed into this world July 3, 1970 by his parents Douglas O. and Susan C. Crittenden and doting big sister Kimberly. He will be greatly missed and is survived by his parents, older sister Kimberly Crittenden Moody and husband Phil, baby sister and best friend Andrea Rae Crittenden, adoring niece and nephew McCall and Maxwell Moody. He leaves behind his devoted canine companion Keno and a loving extended family that includes aunts, uncles, cousins and faithful friends, to grieve his loss. He was greeted on the other side by grandparents Orlo and Agnes Crittenden, Jim and Reva Clark, special cousin Scott Wolfer, as well as mentors and close friends Kelly Ridd and Maynard Jackson who all preceded him in death. Steven was born in Salt Lake City, Utah. He moved from Rose Park to the Murray-Taylorsville area at the age of 4. He graduated from Taylorsville High School in 1988. He attended Salt Lake Community College and was looking forward to entering the "Radiology Tech" program. Steven was a very hard worker and collected at least one lifelong friend from every job. He was happiest spending time in "God's Country" camping, hunting and fishing with his wonderful friends. He was an avid traveler and enjoyed many trips to Hawaii with his family as well as special trips to Alaska fishing with this father and other family members. Steve was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Steven was an example and teacher to his family and friends. He taught us about the power of persistence and perseverance, he showed us what a difference unconditional love and compassion can make, and lived life giving more than he took. His final act of generosity was donating his organs so that others may have a better quality of life. If you wish to honor Steven, please become an organ donor. The family would like to extend a special thank you to Dr. Fred Reihmer and the many friends (you know who you are) for the tireless support, strength, care and kindness you gave not only to Steven, but to his entire family.
