Beloved husband, father, son, brother, grandpa, uncle, and friend passed away at Intermountain Medical Center on September 22, 2010 with family and friends by his side after a long and courageous battle with lung disease.
He was the first child of three born to Ralph Edgar Bonner and Ruth Lahree Ashworth Bonner on January 26, 1947. Being only 4 lbs at birth, Steven started his journey here with determination, fight, and spunk. He would have to rely on those early characteristics throughout his life.
Steve was a very hard worker and took great pride in his work and abilities. He was a successful Barber and carpenter/cement finisher.
He wasn't a big fan of gossip, idle chit-chat, or putting on airs. He was a man of few words, but what he did say was to the point.
His gruff and rugged exterior fooled some but those who took the time to cut through the outer crust found the gooey middle and received the gift of a life time companion and friend.
He left behind his mark of craftsmanship in many Salt Lake City structures, but his biggest mark and his greatest pride in life are his three children; Spencer, Marci, Rhyse, and his first grandchild Tayvia, born August 19, 2010. Keep the porch light on Steve.
Survived by wife, J'Nette Romrell Bonner; two sons, Spencer (Amy) Bonner, Rhyse Bonner and daughter Marci (Arthur) Higgins; granddaughter Tayvia Faith Higgins; mother Ruth Bonner; sisters Bonnie Bowman, and Sandra Calder; aunts, uncles, nieces, and nephews. Preceded in death by father Ralph Bonner.
