Steven Darrell Bird was born in Montpellier, Idaho, to Carolyn and Darrell Bird on Oct. 13, 1954. He passed away in his home on July 29, 2019, surrounded by his family and full of love.

Steve loved being outdoors. Fishing, hunting and camping were where he was the happiest. He found the outdoors to be in alignment with his natural quiet nature, and it always inspired his inner curiosity. Steve always believed in doing and offering your very best. This was evident in his work with Sun Valley Roofing, where he offered the highest quality of work for more than 35 years. This belief was also obvious in how he gave back to his community. He coached a full generation of youth in a variety of sports, he built slides and planted trees at community parks and he helped less fortunate community members with maintenance and house construction projects for the price of a Coke.

He was a devoted family man, teaching his daughters everything, including how to ride a bike, change a car tire and hold their head high with deep pride in themselves through any adversity.

Steven is survived by his loving family: his wife, three daughters, mother, sister and brother, and granddaughters. He also lives through memories by his countless friends.

The family would like to express their deepest thanks to the Hospice of Wood River Valley and Dr. Julie Lyons.

All who knew and loved Steve are welcome to attend a celebration of life at The Life Church of Sun Valley, 931 N. River St. in Hailey, on Aug. 17 at noon. We will share in stories and fellowship, followed by a luncheon.
