We are saddened to announce the passing of a beautiful brother, son, and friend, Steven Gene Conway. Steve fought a difficult battle with colon cancer, and went on to be at one with God on Saturday, October 12, 2013. Steve was a loving brother, and son. And while events and circumstances within his life prevented him from having the capacity to be in the lives of his children, we can hereby speak on his behalf in saying that he was aware that his legacy and the best part of himself is living on within his children. And, through them, Steve's beauty will continue to be everlasting. Steve's courageous soul, peacefully, passed away in his sleep, at the age of 56 years old. At the time of his passing, Steve was residing with friends in Orem, Utah, and we would like to extend our gratitude to the Robert Kaiser family for the help and time they spent with Steve during his last days.
