Stephen was born on Jan. 18, 1987, and was raised in Helena before moving to Belgrade in 2002. He graduated from Belgrade High School in 2006. He was a lineman for Integrated Communications Services.
Stephen loved the outdoors, especially hunting. His dream was to become a hunting guide and guide in Alaska. He loved practicing on his motorcycle for the upcoming races or just going to the mountains to trail ride.
He wrestled for four years at Belgrade High School and took Montana Open First Place in 2006. While he did all that stuff, he loved just hanging out with friends, either as he was riding or just at home. His grin would light up a room and always will be remembered by everyone.
Even though he had a short life, he lived it to the fullest. He will be dearly missed by all his family and friends.
He is survived by his parents, Steve and Cheryl Yurish; sister, Felicia Yurish; nephew, Keagon Hardie; and brother-in-law, Scott Hardie, all of Belgrade.

He was preceded in death by his great-grandparents: Agnes Balentine, Joseph Stoner, Mary Starz and Oscar Starz; grandparents, Joyce Stoner-Yurish and Edward Yurish.
A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. Friday, June 15, at the Belgrade Special Events Center. A reception will immediately follow at the Center.
