Stephen Scott Huntsberger passed away at the age of 67 on February 21, 2023, surrounded by his loving children. He was born on November 7, 1955, on a San Antonio Air Force Base to John Paul Huntsberger and Audrey Ann Dale, both of whom preceded him in death. Steve spent his childhood and high school years in Corvallis, Oregon, where he played baseball, football, and basketball. He was a natural athlete and excelled in every sport he played.
Before his senior year of high school, his family moved to Austin, Texas. During his time in Texas, he joined the Austin Rugby Club and the Tejas Club where he made lifelong friendships that lasted until his passing. After graduating from the University of Texas, Steve pursued his passion for teaching and became a high school science teacher.
His love for skiing took him on a trip with his friends to Salt Lake City, Utah, where he met the mother of his children. He fell in love with the city and stayed there for the rest of his life. Steve had a long and adventurous career as the Vice President of Hospitality and On-Mountain Dining at a ski resort in Park City, Utah. He was passionate about creating unforgettable experiences for guests and was respected by his colleagues for his leadership and dedication. Steve was a loyal and supportive friend, always there to offer a helping hand or a listening ear. He cared deeply about the people in his life and was quick to provide his love and support whenever it was needed.
Steve loved spending time outdoors and had a passion for camping, fishing, golfing and traveling. He was always eager to share his love for these activities with his family and friends. He was known for his hospitality and warmth towards all who knew him, and he brought joy and laughter to every gathering.
Steve was a loving and dedicated father to his two children, Ian and Claire, and a supportive and caring brother to his siblings, Paul Huntsberger and Ruth Howard. He cherished the time spent with his family and was always dedicated to creating lasting memories with them.
Steve’s passing is a significant loss to all who knew him. He will be missed beyond belief by his family and friends, who will always cherish the memories they shared with him. His legacy of kindness, generosity, and love will live on in the hearts of those who were fortunate enough to know him.
We will be gathering for a celebration of life just as Steve would have wanted. More information will be provided at a later date.
