Steven Osburn

Steven Osburn

12/26/1956 — 7/6/2017

Steve was tragically taken from us too early in a vehicle accident on July 6, 2017, near Pateros, Wash.

He was born to Donald and Della (Hartwig) Osburn on Dec. 26, 1956, in Cottonwood.

He graduated from Highland High School in Craigmont in 1975, and went to work farming and driving logging truck for Osburn and Son's Logging.

Steve married Sherry Solberg and they had two sons, Chris and Cody. This marriage later ended in divorce. Steve later met and married the love of his life, Gayle Westhoff, at their Weippe house in 2010.

Steve took great pride in being an owner and operator of Don Osburn and Son's Logging and later Osburn and Son's Logging; driving logging truck for 26 years. Everyone knew him coming down the road by the "OZZIE" on his truck's bug shield. He later worked for Truss Systems and was well know for the locations he could place his truck to set the trusses off. When Truss Systems relocated, Steve went to work for Atlas Sand and Rock, driving dump truck.

Steve loved camping and four-wheeling with his family and friends. He enjoyed snowmobiling and tinkering on any machine to achieve full power potential. He will always be remembered as a super nice guy who would do anything for anyone, and his capability to make anything run. He loved his life with Gayle and their beautiful new home that he helped build. He also enjoyed caring for his two dogs and cat. Steve's granddaughter, Taylor, held a special place in his heart. He loved going to, and watching, everything she was involved in, as well as her coming down to stay with him.

Steve is survived by his mother, Della of Craigmont; and nine siblings, brothers Lonnie (Glenda), Danny, Tony (Debbie), sisters Trish (Ted Wicks) and Lana (Gary Fonnesbeck) all of Lewiston; brother Richard and sister Julie (Ernie Steckman) of Winchester; brothers Jerry (Teri) and David (Tammy) of Craigmont; son Chris (Michelle) of Lewiston; son Cody (Jill) of Nezperce; and stepson Shane Doyle (Kellie) of Great Falls, Mont. He is also survived by his granddaughter, Taylor Osburn, of Craigmont. He leaves behind many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and nephews, and more family and friends than we are able to list.

He was preceded in death by his father, Donald; grandparents Carl and Edith Osburn; and grandparents George and Mary Hartwig.

Services will be held at 10 a.m. Tuesday, July 11, at the Craigmont School Gymnasium. There will be a covered-dish gathering immediately following at the Craigmont Legion Hall in Craigmont. Please come and share a favorite "Steve" story. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Lewis Clark Animal Shelter, Lewiston.
