Steve Sheldon Rawlings

Steve Sheldon Rawlings, 74, passed away on September 29, 2021 at the Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center in Idaho Falls from injuries sustained in an ATV accident.

He was born March 25, 1947 in Preston, Idaho to Sheldon Rawlings and Roma Louise Smith. He loved his early life helping his father build a family home, fixing any type of equipment necessary and interacting with his siblings Diane, Cathy, Kim and a bit later in life Stacey.

Steve was an outstanding speaker, writer, athlete, coach, mechanic, husband and father. His priority was family and actively working to ensure their success and attending all types of events kids and grandkids were involved in. After a decorated award-winning professional career with a fortune 500 company, running a family-owned piano business and then as an elected government official in Utah, Steve enjoyed returning to his Preston roots and life with his wife, and his best friend, (brother in-law) Kevin Gamble. He was still pursuing life vigorously, including gardening, buying horses to enjoy and breed as well as commencing with clearing the land for building a recreation area when an accident took him from this life.

On June 14, 1965 Steve married Jenell Gamble, also of Preston, Idaho. He is survived by his three sons Troy (Lisa) Rawling of Farmington, Utah; Chad (Amber) of North Salt Lake, Utah; Kitt (Susan) of Syracuse, Utah; by 14 grandchildren; by a sister Cathy Nash of Bountiful, Utah; and by a brother Stacey Rawlings of Salt Lake City, Utah. He was preceded in death by his parents and a brother (Kim) and sister (Diane).

Funeral services will be held on Friday, October 8, 2021 at 12:00 p.m. at Webb Funeral Home, 1005 South 800 East, Preston, Idaho. Viewings will be held Thursday from 6-8 p.m. and Friday from 10:30-11:30 a.m. both at Webb Funeral Home. Interment will be in the Preston Cemetery.

So sorry to hear about Steve's death. Even though we were cousins I didn't know him as well as I would of liked to. What I do know of him is that he was always giving of his time to help his parents and family. When I did talk to him he always talked about his boy and how proud of them he was. May you remember that you will be together again and that he will always be with you.

Steve Rawlings #41 football. The hardest hitting player I ever came up against. Hated the dummy drills in practice coming up against Steve. A great friend. Brian Hyde

Just got the news about Steve from my brother Jeff. Going to school with Steve and Jenell is a special forever memory in my life. We have shared so many special experiences as classmates, double dating experiences, Cheerleaders screaming for Steve as he played so amazing on our great team for our school, and so many memories along the path of life as we attended Preston HIgh School together. May you know that I am with you Jenell and all your family at this difficult time.

Steve was a good man who had a kind heart and good spirit. I haven't spoken with him in nearly ten years, but his quick wit and wry sense of humor are fresh in my memory. My condolences to his family. I am sorry for your loss.
