Steven John Sargent "Sarge" passed away on November 28, 2017. Our Dad was born on April 25, 1940 in Salt Lake City to Elmer John and Gertrude "Annie" Webb Sargent and raised in Hoystsville/Coalville, Utah.
He married his partner in crime, love of his life Sandra Afton Brown on November 9, 1962. Reunited after just over two years. He owned Sarge's truck & auto in Midvale for over 40 years.
Dad and Mom enjoyed many hobbies with family and friends including hunting, camping, fishing, snowmobiling, boating at Lake Powell (Mom's favorite) and his beloved Jeep (his favorite). He was also an avid football (Broncos and U of U) basketball (Jazz) and NASCAR fan. It was always a party with our parents for sure.
