April 29, 1972 - January 10, 2014
“Stevo” passed away unexpectedly on Friday. He is survived by his wife, Angela, sons, James and Evan and daughters, Savannah and Phoenix; parents, Joel and Fran Miller of Silt, Colorado; sisters, Sheri and Lorraine; brothers, David and Eric; and in-laws, David and Patty Nelson and family. He leaves many cousins, nieces, nephews, uncles, and a beloved grandmother Evelyn May. A multitude of friends up and down the valley also mourn his passing. He is preceded in death by his niece, Kellie Miller.
Steve was a dinosaur for his kids to ride on, a father who gave them all his love. He was a husband who loved and adored his beautiful wife. He was a son who gave the biggest bear hugs to his parents and always said that he loved them. He was more than a brother — a best friend, a co-writer of music, partner in all.
A painter by profession, Steve found his passion as a musician, snowboarder, skater, farmer, and thrill seeker.
Born a punk rock rebel, he was the heartbeat of the band EOS and was a leader in the punk scene in the ’80s and ’90s. He always wanted to play one more song. Steve had a smile that would light up the room. The life of the party, his contagious smile would stay in everyone’s heart long after they left. He never knew a stranger and had a way to make every person he met feel special. To some, a musical hero, to others, a drinking buddy, and yet he was always a permanent fixture in a fabric of friends who are deeply interwoven throughout this valley. He was rarely on time for work but always on time to go snowboarding. He always kept us laughing.
A public viewing will be at Farnum Holt Funeral Home, 405 W. 7th Street in Glenwood Springs on Thursday, January 16th, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. A public memorial service celebrating “Stevo’s” life will take place on Saturday, January 18th, at 2:00pm at New Creation Church, Canyon Creek exit off I-70. Pastor Mark Bintliff will officiate.
“The journey never ends
on this long and twisted road.
Throw caution to the wind as we travel in the night
The past is the past, the future is unknown
Now is the choice
You don’t have to be alone”
-Lyrics by Steve Miller
