Stephen Anthony Purner
April 8, 1960-March 5, 2013

Steve was a California native and long-time San Diego area resident. He was born in Pasadena, grew up in Sierra Madre, graduated from St. Rita Elementary School and St. Francis High School, and attended the University of Kentucky. Steve followed his grandfather and father into Thoroughbred Horse Racing, enjoyed his Country Music, and rabidly cheered for the UCLA Bruins, but best of all he was a father, son,
brother, uncle, cousin and friend. He was taken far too soon by heart disease.
He will be greatly missed by his daughters Melissa and Jessica, mother Kathy, sisters Julie (John), Kathleen (Rob), and Jennifer (Rob), brothers Dan (Julie) and Andrew (Tammy), 20 nieces and nephews (especially Trey, Savvy & Hudson), cousins, and a lifetime of good friends, especially Mary and Grace. Steve was preceded in death by his father Fred A. Purner, Jr.
A memorial Mass will be held on Thursday, March 14, at 5:00 pm at St. Rita Catholic Church, 318 N. Baldwin Ave., Sierra Madre, CA. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that donations be made to the Fred A. Purner, Jr. award at St. Francis High School, 200 Foothill Blvd., La Cañada Flintridge, CA 91011.
