1958 ~ 2018
Salt Lake City, UT-Steven Ostmark, born March 17, 1958, left us far too soon due to complications from pneumonia on March 26, 2018. Steven was a wonderful husband, son, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, coworker and friend to so many. Steven is survived by his wife Tammy; his children Zachary (Stephanie) and Milisa (Suzi); his grandchildren Brock, Callie, Jaxon and Oliver; his brothers Harley (Debbie), Glenn (Pamella), Troy (Tammy); and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents Bente and Kjell Ostmark; and his brother Jeff Ostmark. Steven was born on St. Patrick's Day and he loved it and hated it at the same time. Too much green and too much corned beef and cabbage over the years! His father was from Norway and his mother was from Denmark so he nick named himself "Sven!" He loved wearing Viking horns proudly showing off his heritage. He was a loyal Chicago Bears fan sticking with the team through good times and bad. When he met his wife, Tammy, he found his soulmate. They are two peas in a pod and the perfect match. He loved spending time with his children and grandchildren as they lived close by. They spent many fun times with him in his second office "the garage" or barbecuing in his backyard, as Steven was a master with the barbecue! Steven worked as a Configuration Management/Analyst for Northrop Grumman for 35 years. His passion was for Utah Special Olympics and the athletes loved seeing him every year at the Summer Games. A memorial service will be held at Southeast Christian Church, 1881 E Vine Street, Salt Lake City, Utah 84121 on Tuesday, April 3, 2018 at 6:00 pm. Casual dress as Steven was a casual guy.
