BURLEY—Steven H. Wrigley, a 49-year-old resident of Burley, passed away at his home on Wednesday, Dec. 7, 2022, of natural causes.
He was born Jan. 30, 1973, in Burley, Idaho. He began school here and in 1983 the family moved to Delta Junction, Alaska. He finished his schooling and graduated from Delta High School. Steven enjoyed managing the high school basketball team, playing ball and being with the team and players. He loved working on the family farm and enjoyed the baby pigs. He also worked at the IGA in Delta Junction stocking shelves, giving hugs, and was the manager over the dairy department.
Steven was the happiest person ever! He greeted everyone – whether he knew them or not – with a huge hug and smile! He accomplished much in his years with us and had so many growth opportunities. He loved playing T-ball and then baseball. He was involved in the Special Olympics while in Alaska and participated in basketball every year. He also went to St. Paul/Minneapolis, Minnesota, for Special Olympics.
Steven was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and enjoyed participating in the various callings he received. He loved being the secretary of the Melchizedek Priesthood Group in his branch in Delta, Alaska, and every priesthood holder got a call from him every month so he could finish his monthly report! He was the best home teacher/minister there ever was! Steven was faithful in everything he did.
