Steven Craig Wilkins, 63, of Springville, Utah passed away on Thursday, January 11, 2024 due to health complications from his Diabetes/Dialysis. He was born in Lynwood, California on June 18, 1960 to Kenneth Morris Wilkins and Diane Alice Tetley Wilkins. He moved to Rancho Cordova, California when he was 5. He served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for 2 years in Hartford, Connecticut from 1979-1981. After that he attended College at Brigham Young University, and then eventually moved to Utah to live permanently in 1996. Steve was married for around 9 years to Angela Padian and helped raise 5 step-children named Vanessa, Zackary, Astral, Savannah and Rebecca, and two step-grandchildren named Megan and Linkin.
Steve enjoyed the outdoors, camping and four wheeling. He enjoyed cooking with cast iron, dutch ovens and other equipment. He loved listening to the Beatles and Led Zeppelin. He loved all things Three Stooges and shared it with us all, especially his step children, the nieces, nephews and anyone else who would watch it with him. He loved all animals. He was a jokester who loved to tease and laugh about everything, which endeared him to us all. Steve had a long 31 year career working for Fed-Ex in several different positions. He first worked in the call center, then became a driver, then a manager at the SLC Airport and at present was a dispatcher for the company. He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and held many positions in the church.
Steve is survived by his Mother, Diane Alice Tetley Wilkins of Springville, Utah; his three siblings Connie of Springville, Utah; Julie (Bruce) of Spanish Fork, Utah; Roger (Donna) of Lehi, Utah; and 10 nephews and nieces. He was preceded in death by his Father, Kenneth Morris Wilkins, and his cat Moe, and dogs Larry and Curly.
Due to Steve’s wishes, we will have an immediate family gathering graveside dedication at the Spanish Fork Cemetery on Tuesday, January 16, 2024. At a later time we will have a memorial service to which his extended family and friends will be invited to. Thank you to all of his doctors/nurses, and Davita Dialysis Clinics in Provo and Orem Utah, who took such good care of him, and his Fed-Ex family whom he loved.
