Frederick Steers, age 80, passed away peacefully with family at his side at Mountain View Hospital, Payson, Utah. He was born 12th September 1938 in London, England to Leslie Ernest and Mary Ellen (Gill) Steers. The middle of three children.

He attended William Penn School in Peckham, London, but much of his education was from the school of life. Growing up in London during WWII taught him the value of hard work and how to get things done when times were tough. During his teen years Fred was a keen boxer and became the amateur boxing champion of Great Britain in 1952 for the 117lb weight division.

It was during his time in the British Army (1958-1959), serving on the island of Cyprus that he met his wife, Greta. She was attracted to the tall handsome man with the whitest of teeth and found he was also a big romantic softie. They married 28th January 1961 in Edinburgh, Scotland.

They emigrated to Australia in 1963 to start a new life and to find adventure. It was during his time in Australia that Fred met the missionaries and joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He has been a faithful member ever since.

It was time to return home in 1972 and Fred brought his family back to Britain and after a long cold year in London, they moved up to Carnoustie, Scotland. Fred was working in retail by this point and was the manager for several stores and businesses throughout the UK.

Eventually there became a powerful draw of grandkids in the US and Fred & Greta moved to Vernal, Utah in 1991. After retiring Fred couldn’t slow down and became a qualified soccer referee and a member of the board of directors for the Utah Chapter of AYSO.

Fred showed his love through service. He was always willing to help, the more physical the task at hand, the happier he was. He would often take a vacation to visit his children and spend much of the time painting rooms or repairing things in the house that needed some attention.

He is survived by his beloved wife of 58 years, Greta; daughter Joanne (Ken) Heister, and sons Darren (Mai-Ly) and Luke; sister Valerie (Geoff) Ashton; 8 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren.

He was preceded by his oldest daughter, Pamela Lesley Merrill, grandson, Britt Merrill and brother Leslie Ernest Steers.

Services will be held Friday, 5th July 2019 at Legacy Funerals, 3595 North Main, Spanish Fork, UT at 7:00 pm. Graveside services on Saturday, 6th July 2019 at Vernal Dry Fork Cemetery at 12:00 noon. Condolences can be offered at

One of his best qualities was to make people feel comfortable in his presence. He made long-lasting friendships wherever he went. We love him dearly and will miss his couthie spirit.
