Larry Steven Saddler, aged 72, passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by his loved ones on November 9th, 2021. Steve was born on March 9th, 1949, in Du Quoin, Illinois to Pernie
Genevia Toth and Evan Henry Saddler. He was the baby of the family following his three big sisters: Jody, Peggy, and Carol, and his big brother, Roger. His parents later divorced, and Steve
lived with his father and his siblings in Illinois throughout his childhood. He later moved to Utah to be with his mother and stepfather, John Toth. He had the pleasure of becoming an older
brother to four more siblings: Johnny, Sheila, Shauna, and Rose that he loved very much.
He enlisted in the army and served honorably in Viet Nam from 1970 to 1972 and in the States until 1974. He married Mona Louse Martin on August 24th, 1973, and started their family, settling in Utah. Steve continued to serve his country and support his family by working at the Tooele Army Depot for 25 years until he retired.
In 1974 Steve and Mona were blessed with their first son, Randy. They were blessed with two more boys, Jim in 1976 and Dave in 1979. Their first grandson Tyler was born in 1995 followed by Braison in 1997 and Matthew in 2001.
After retirement, he did many different things but his most favorite thing to do was wet a line in whatever body of water was available. He passed his passion for fishing on to his children. His greatest pride and joy was his family and particularly his children and grandchildren. He changed for the better when his grandchildren were born and enjoyed his time with them very much. One of the things he will be remembered for most is his sense of humor and his infectious laugh.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Evan, Pernie, and John, his older sister Carol and his younger sister Rose.
He is survived by his loving wife, Mona, and his children and grandchildren as well as his brothers and sisters and numerous extended family.
A graveside service will be held on Wednesday, November 17th at 2:00 PM in the Grantsville City Cemetery.
