Steven Andrew Bean 1968 ~ 2011

KAYSVILLE - Steven Andrew Bean slipped away to the company of heaven and family on Wednesday, March 30, 2011. He is now free from the ailments which beset him from his teen years. What will he do now with the quick wit and humor that fought back the years of pain? Steve was born November 16, 1968 to David E. Bean and Elaine Sims Bean, the ninth of ten children. He graduated from Davis High School in 1987 and served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in St. Louis, Missouri. One of the highlights of his life has been volunteering with Curtis Pettingill keeping stats for the Davis High football and basketball teams for many seasons. Steve married Elinda Morrill in the Bountiful LDS Temple on June 23, 2005. She came with three bright, beautiful children whom Steve adopted in July, 2009. He loved the job of father, even in difficult times. Steven is survived by his wife and children, Stefanie, Marissa and David. Also surviving: his father, David E. Bean (Lois); siblings, Carolie (Glenn) Parker, Shauna (Jeffrey) Yarbrough, Lisa Fitch, Cory (Alayna) Bean, Gaynell (Guy) Parker, Joseph (Eve) Bean, Clark (Sharon) Bean, Emilie (Charles) Baxter, Daniel (Katy) Bean; and his dogs, Dr. Jones and Indy (because they named the dog Indiana). He is also survived by his uncles, Richard Bean, Roger (Eve) Bean, Merrill (Joan) Bean, and Aunt Barbara Sansom, and a jolly raucous multitude of cousins, nieces and nephews. Great uncle of fifteen bright souls. He was preceded in death by his mother, Elaine, and niece, Stephanie Parker. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the Perpetual Education Fund.
