Steven Bearnson

January 8, 1965 — February 7, 2022

Steven Roy Bearnson passed away peacefully, at the age of 57, surrounded by loved ones at Lakeview Hospital in Bountiful, Utah. He died on Monday, February 7, 2022, after a valiant fight against COVID-19.

Steven was born in Bountiful, Utah, on January 8, 1965 to James “Big Jim” and Rhea Bearnson. Steven, more affectionately referred to as “Bearnie”, was loved by all; known for his caring demeanor, legendary bear hugs and infectious personality. From a young age Steve had a passion for sports, which continued throughout his life. He played baseball and football, and was fortunate to become an all-state athlete in football. Steve also took his love of sports to the sidelines, serving as the mascot for the Bountiful Braves his senior year of High School. This was a job he took very seriously and was widely known to be the best at it.

Steven had five children that he loved dearly, and never failed to show up as their biggest cheerleader. He made a point to impress upon his children that they were never an inconvenience to him. Steve would travel long distances to watch their games, pick them up when they were homesick, or just to be there when they needed to know they were loved. He was always willing to drop everything to help his kids. On numerous occasions, he drove trailers full of his kid's stuff to aid them in moving across the country. He also found it of the utmost importance to provide his children with memorable experiences. On several occasions he spontaneously surprised his kids with a trip to Disneyland.

Steven was the proud grandfather of four, with another on the way. His oldest granddaughter, Oakley, decided to carry on the nickname “Bearnie” in place of Grandpa. His grandsons loved going on four-wheeler rides to find reindeer, camping trips, and going to the arcade with him. Bearnie will be remembered for great heart and never-ending sense of adventure.

Steven was a lifelong member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He served a full-time mission in Chicago, Illinois. Steve graduated with bachelor’s in accounting from Utah Valley University, where he also received his teaching degree. He was a jack of many trades: entrepreneur, tradesman, home renovation expert, and high school accounting teacher, among many other skills. As a child, Steve is remembered by his mother as always taking things apart just to see how they worked and subsequently putting them back together, succeeding most of the time.

Steven is survived by his daughter, Stefyn Bearnson Hall, Sean Hall (Husband), Hendrix Hall (Son), Tina Hemphill (Mother); son, Kade Bearnson, Taylor Bearnson (Wife), Oakley Bearnson (Daughter), Riggins Bearson (Son), Indie Bearnson (Daughter); son, Collin Bearnson, Emily Bearnson (Wife); daughter Brecken Keele, Gavin Keele (Husband); daughter Sage Bearnson, Lisa Bearnson (Mother); mother Rhea Bearnson; sister Gwen Davis, Steve David (Husband); sister Sharon Mitchell, Dave Mitchell (Husband); sister Kathy McNamara, Steve McNamara (Husband);  brother Mike Bearnson, Jenni Bearnson (Wife); and an abundant loving extended family. He is proceeded in death by father, Jim Bearnson and brother, Kevin Bearnson.

Steven will be missed by many longtime friends, family, and anyone who has ever been touched by his larger-than-life personality. Next to his Savior Jesus Christ and his family, his true love was driving his boat on Lake Powell surrounded by loved ones. We know that’s how he would want to be remembered.
