Steven Lee Fagerstone was born September 4, 1953, the first born to Winston and Delma (Payte) Fagerstone. Steve was born and raised in Arvada, CO.
In 1974 Steve moved to Gastonia, NC. There he met and fell in love with Rhonda Stevenson. Steve and Rhonda were married in 1976. From that union came Steve’s pride and joy…first Heather, then Christopher. Steve loved his children dearly. Their favorite memory of their dad was Sunday walks. Every Sunday they would take a long walk and pick up “treasures” along the way.
Steve worked in a machine shop for many years in Gastonia, NC. In 1993 Steve moved back to Colorado and went to Truck Driving School. His goal was to become an OTR driver so he could make trips to North Carolina to see Heather and Christopher. He had many tales from behind the big wheel. Steve loved to tell stories…some more believable than others!
In 1998, Steve moved with his mom and dad to Casper where he lived until his passing. Steve was into the outdoor’s and was always up for an adventure. He was not above heading to the river or the mountains with just a tent, sleeping bag and of course, coffee. He liked to travel with his special friend, Jackie.
If you were to look in the dictionary for the definition of independent, you would find Steve’s picture. Steve would do what he wanted, when he wanted and with whom he wanted. He wore his emotions on his sleeve and wasn’t afraid to show them…good or bad!
Steve was very talented. He spent countless hours carving everything from bears, to lions, to knives and guns. Steve was passionate about racing, no matter the type. He loved sprint cars and would do whatever it took to be able to watch them. Ask him about any driver and he could tell you more than you probably wanted to know.
Steve was proceeded in death by his paternal and maternal grandparents, his brother Gary, dad Winston, and many aunts, uncles and cousins. He is survived by his children and grandchildren, Heather (Ryleigh) and Christopher (Tristen), his mom Delma, brother’s Ben (Karen) and Carl (Stacie), sister-in-law Julie, nieces Amanda (Adrian), Emily and Dondrae, nephew Evan, many aunts, uncles, cousins, and his special friend, Jackie. Steve also leaves behind many friends. His passing leaves a hole in the heart of all who knew and loved him.
Memorials in Steve’s name may be made to Casper Community Church.
Rest high on that mountain, dear brother.
