Stephen McConkie Obituary 23 Apr 2006
Stephen Lowell McConkie Jr.
Stephen Lowell McConkie, Jr. True and Faithful Stephen Lowell McConkie, Jr., 27, a giant of a young man, passed away peacefully at his home April 21, 2006 after a courageous battle with cancer. Stephen was born February 26, 1979 in Harbor City, California the first son and second child of Stephen L. and Shauna Stout McConkie. He was thereafter joined by five siblings, to whom he was the perfect brother. Stephen was reared in Southern California where he pursued the joys of adolescence. He became an Eagle Scout at the age of 13 (later adding three palms) and has since always revered the principles of faith, loyalty, and hard work. Stephen graduated from Brighton High School in 1998 and then honorably served as a missionary in the Australia Adelaide Mission. He loved being a missionary, loved those he served with, and loved the people he met in Australia. Shortly after his return he met the girl of his dreams and was sealed to Andrea Ence June 11, 2003 in the Salt Lake LDS Temple. They are the parents of Stephen Connor who, in association with his mother, brought inexpressible joy into Stephen's life. Stephen graduated from the University of Utah with a degree in Communications and English. While attending the U he served in multiple student government positions and as president of the Latter-day Saint Student Association. Stephen was blessed throughout his life with an unfailing testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ. He found great joy in serving in the Church and had a passion for studying the scriptures. He had a special gift for getting along with people and made friends very easily. He was a natural leader and was looked to as an example by many. Stephen is survived by his eternal companion, Andrea; and his son, Connor; parents, Stephen and Shauna McConkie; siblings, Alison (Gardiner) Packer, Spencer, Annalisa (Gregory) Condie, Richard (serving in the Scotland Edinburgh Mission), Benjamin and Samuel; nephews, Isaac, Tayden, and Wyatt Packer. Also survived by the Ence family who loved and accepted him as their own, Richard K. and Marla Tingey Ence, Scott, Michelle, Katie, David, and Madelyn. Grandparents Owen and Colleen Engh Stout; numerous aunts and uncles; and more than one hundred first cousins. He is preceded in death by his grandparents, Elder Bruce R. and Amelia Smith McConkie. Stephen's family expresses appreciation and love to so many friends and family members for their selfless care and generosity during his illness. In particular we thank Dr. Lor Randall, Dr. Elise Horvath, the entire sarcoma team, and all those at the Huntsman Cancer Institute who gave Stephen such excellent care. We are grateful for the members of the Cottonwood 6th Ward who have offered much kindness and love and to Bonneville Mortgage Company which has been constant in its care and support of Stephen and his family throughout this ordeal. Funeral services will be held Wed-nesday, April 26, 12 noon at the Big Cottonwood Stake Center, 1750 E. Spring Lane (5200 South). Friends and family may be greeted in the Relief Society room prior to the service from 10-11:30 a.m. A viewing the previous evening, also at the stake center, will be held from 6-8 p.m. Interment at the Salt Lake City Cemetery.
