Steven Carl Valentine died Friday, Feb. 12, 2021, at Summit Healthcare Regional Medical Center in Show Low, Arizona, from a sudden illness. He was 67 years old.
Steve was born on May 19, 1953, in Los Angeles, California to his parents, the late Walter Carl and Reatha Grace (Smith) Valentine.
Steve was a self-employed heavy equipment mechanic and was also known to be a "jack of all trades." He built his home in Linden (just outside of Show Low).
