Steven R. Weeks, a much-loved brother, father, grandfather, and friend passed away peacefully in his sleep Jan. 11 in a care facility in Boise, Idaho.
He led a very blessed life and touched many lives with his gentle soul and easy-going, day-to-day lifestyle.
This is not saying he did not get into a little trouble from time-to-time living life to the fullest.
At the age of 18, Steven was drafted into the Army and served his country in the Vietnam War for two years.
When he returned home, he lived in Seneca and Burns, working for the logging industry and providing for his family.
His joys in life were his kids, Coryell and Angela, his cars, rides on his ATV, and fishing and hunting with his family in the Malheur National Forest, where they named his favorite spot “Pudge’s Point.” This is where his ashes will be spread for him to rest.
Burns held a very special place in Pudge’s life. It was the place he loved most and the place he never wanted to leave. He enjoyed the friends and the memories he made there.
It was his love of Burns that set his last wishes to have a celebration of his life to be held in the spring (to be announced later) with his friends and family, sharing their favorite stories and memories of Steve and his wonderful life.
