BEAR RIVER CITY Steven Lee Holmgren, 57, of Bear River City, died Saturday, Dec. 8, 2001, in Brigham City, Utah, doing what he loved best, golfing! He was born Oct. 1, 1944 in Tremonton, Utah the son of Delbert Kenneth and Elaine Hokanson Holmgren. He married Margaret Ann Douglas on June 20, 1969 in Howell, Utah. They made their home in Bear River City where he lived for the past 57 years.

Steve was educated in Box Elder County, graduating from Box Elder High School. He graduated from Utah State University, receiving his degree in commercial art and photography.

Steve was a partner of Holmgren Land and Livestock, where he was a farmer and rancher his whole life. He previously served on the Bear River City Council, and then honorably served as Bear River City mayor. He was presently serving as the Box Elder County commissioner. He loved serving the county with all of his heart. He was a member of the BRAG Association, Box Elder Countys Agribusiness Committee, and served on the East Access Management Team and the Governors River Enhancement council as well as many other offices in the community and county.

Steve was a member of the Bear River City First Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where he was a priest in the Aaronic Priesthood.

Steve was a loving husband, father, grandfather, cattleman, businessman, and friend. He loved his family with all his heart and always wanted the best for everyone. He was always willing to lend a helping hand to someone in need.

He enjoyed golfing, listening to good music, reading his daily paper, watching a good western movie, and spending time with his family. One thing that should always be remembered, is his positive attitude that he always displayed. He encouraged everyone he came in contact with, to do the same. He said, Just always think positive, and everyone and everything will be OK, and work out as it should. He was right, it always did. He will always be dearly loved and missed by all.

He is survived by his wife, Margaret of Bear River City; his children, Annette (John) Bosworth of Plain City, Shane and Colette Holmgren, and Chrystal (Clay) Butler all of Bear River City; his brothers and sisters, Kenneth (Norine) Holmgren of Ogden, Shirley Meldrum of Ogden, Holley Wangsgaard of Logan, Diane (Fenton) Arnell of Bear River City, and James (Terri) Holmgren of Tremonton; and 6 grandchildren, Brodee, Skyler, Payton, Jordin, Hudson, and Harlie.

He was preceded in death by his parents; father and mother-in-law, Louis (Joyce) and the late Carol Lee Douglas; two brothers-in-law, Dallas Meldrum and Brent Wangsgaard.
