Steve Marshall
Panguitch, Utah

    Steven Monte Marshall, 78, passed away peacefully in his home in Panguitch,  surrounded by his wife and children. Steve was born in Panguitch, on January 20, 1945 to Monte D. Marshall and Cleo Tebbs.  He lived life to the fullest. Some might even say he lived life to the extreme - never doing anything halfway and always being motivated by deep and passionate interests. His enthusiasm for life influenced everyone around him. He always led by example, worked hard, served others, and instilled those ethics in all of his children and grandchildren.  
    Steve grew up in Panguitch and was the oldest of five children. In his early years, he enjoyed training and jockeying horses, hunting, fishing, and wrestling. Steve had a profound and lifelong love of learning. If he wasn’t actively doing something, he could be found reading or studying something - taking notes that could be found with nearly every book or magazine he read. This love of learning carried him through his education. He graduated from Panguitch High School in 1963. He then moved on to graduate from Dixie College and, ultimately, the University of Utah College of Pharmacy. 
    Steve married his sweetheart, Marilyn Allen, on August 26, 1972, in the St. George Temple. They had seven children: Anne, Sam, McKenzie, Colin, Jocelyn, Shaun, and Skye. 
    Steve was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He served an honorable, full-time mission in the Northern States (US and Canada) Mission. Some of his favorite church callings were Scoutmaster, Elders Quorum presidency of the Panguitch Lake Branch, and teaching gospel doctrine to inmates in the Garfield County Jail. 
    Steve remained a man of many talents, hobbies, and interests. He was a talented musician who played the guitar and sang in community musicals and church choirs. He had a passion for creative writing and wrote many poems. He was a farrier and enjoyed shoeing horses. He loved photography, photographing the outdoors, and documenting his travels with Marilyn, starting with a 5-month honeymoon tour across Europe in a Volkswagen van. They also traveled to many US National Parks, Africa, China, Albania, Peru, Greece, Mexico, the Amazon Rainforest, and Tahiti. 
    Steve was an intense competitor. He wrestled in high school and college and coached all his sons through many years of wrestling. He loved biking, swimming, running, climbing, hiking, skiing, and competed in many triathlons and full and half marathons until his late 60’s. His children and grandchildren were often coerced into healthy athletic competition, being bribed to compete or even paid to engage in a challenge. Steve always knew the value of pushing yourself against strong competition.  
    In his later years, Steve enjoyed spending time at his cabin at Panguitch Lake, hiking, hunting, and horse riding in the hills. His friends and family hold precious memories of those hikes, hunts, and horse rides. 
    Steve loved Panguitch and was a valued community member as a business owner and Pharmacist. He was proud of the business he built, and people often commented on how beautiful the Panguitch Drug Store was and how much they loved it.  He served on the Panguitch Chamber of Commerce, working hard to improve and maintain Panguitch Main Street and help keep a historical look to the buildings. He served many years on the Board of Trustees at Southern Utah University and The Bryce Canyon Natural History Association. 
    Steve was a staple in the community. But, much more than that, he was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. He was a loyal and trusted friend. He was a man of integrity and honor. He will be sorely missed by  all who had the good fortune of knowing him and being known by him. 
    Funeral services will be held in his honor on Tuesday, November 14, 2023, at 12:00 Noon. Friends may call Monday for a viewing from 6:00-7:00 pm or Tuesday from 10:30-11:30 a.m. Burial will be in the Panguitch Cemetery.
