Steven R. Conley passed away peacefully at his home in Richland, WA on October 25, 2021 at the age of 71.
Steve is survived by his wife, Carrie Conley; his children, Lexie Dewitt and her husband Stuart, and Kyle Conley and his wife Melissa; his sisters, Jan Waldrup and Peggy Conley; his grandchildren, Charlie Dewitt, Loralai DeWitt, Lucas DeWitt, Kate Conley and Clare Conley. He is predeceased by his parents, Glen and Barb Conley and his brother Todd Conley.
Steve was born in Seattle, WA October 23rd, 1950. He graduated from Lewis and Clark High School in Spokane, WA. He attended Washington State University on a football scholarship and pursued a degree in zoology, but later attended University of Washington to pursue a degree in economics. He then went into banking and commercial lending and moved to the Tri-Cities where he met his wife Carrie. They married, and had two children, who were the light of his life. Steve’s job took the family to Moses Lake, Yakima, and East Wenatchee, back to Kennewick and later Walla Walla during his commercial banking career. His ability to establish relationships made him a successful banker with many businesses.
Steve was a devoted father and avid duck hunter. In his twenties and early thirties Steve competed in many skeet shooting and duck calling competitions. Steve enjoyed watching his children play sports and spent nights and weekends volunteering and coaching. Steve also went on a trip of a lifetime to Argentina to dove hunt. He had many memorable hunting trips with friends during his life. He will be deeply missed by his friends, family, and all who knew him.
A graveside service for family is planned at Einan’s at Sunset Funeral Home.
Jan, Peggy, Carrie and family,
I am so sorry to hear of Steve’s passing. I feel that I knew him in two separate lives. First, when we were kids, the Conleys would come visit us on the farm. We played in the barn, 8n the creek, and whatever other mischievous thing we could find. Also loved the big Conley family reunions. As we grew up, we all went our separate ways and didn’t keep in touch like we should have. Fast forward to when I was working at Richland High School and realized I was working with Steve’s wife! Thus, the second life. What a joy seeing him as a husband, and the father of two wonderful kids. So many memories of Steve, all include his contagious smile and wonderful personality. He will be missed. You are all in my heart and prayers during this difficult time
I remember Steve in high school, he was a year behind me at LC. Great athlete in the sports he played. He was on the LC football team that won the State Champion in 1967.
So sorry to hear of Steve’s passing. We got to know him through our sons baseball. My deepest sympathies goes out to Carrie Lexie and Kyle. Many Hugs and prayers to you all.
Rick and Bobbie
Carrie, Please accept my deepest condolences.
