Steven Jay Wertz
4/14/1961 - 4/21/2016
Steven Jay Wertz was born in Caldwell, Idaho on April 14, 1961. There will be lunch and a Bluegrass "Jamb" Celebration of his life on Saturday, April 30th from 1 to 3 PM at his beloved Cuddy Mountain Ranch in Council, Idaho. Bring your instruments and join in. After graduating with high honors from BSU (as Steve always said, GO BRONCOS), he started his life long career in drafting. Most of his working years were at Hansen & Rice in various positions where he was working at the time of his death. We were so blessed to have him join our family when he married Tammy Anderson on May 24, 1981. He was such a wonderful Dad to their three boys, Jacob, Travis and Brandon (Katie). His latest role in life was being "papa" to Jude and little Lily. They were his life, and a prouder "papa" there wasn't.
On April 21, 2016 Jacob wrote this tribute: This has probably been the hardest day of my life. This morning I lost my hero and my best friend. You taught me what it means to be a man and how important family is. You are who I aspire to be. You were taken from us so fast that I can't believe it's real. You meant so much to so many. You are so loved. Until we see each other again, Dad, I love you so much.
