Steven Michael Moyers, husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather died peacefully at his home in Morgan, Utah on December 19th, 2022 at the age of 80.

He was born in Enid, Oklahoma in 1942 to Raymond and Catherine Moyers.  He was raised on the family farm in Drummond, Oklahoma with his siblings Carolyn, Connie, and Phil Moyers.

After he graduated from Oklahoma State University with a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering, he started his career in the nuclear power industry in the state of Washington.

It is there that he met his first wife, Donna Rae Willis Moyers.  They started their family in Richland, Washington and had two daughters; Gaylene and Cara Lynne.

The family moved to Omaha, Nebraska in 1970 when Steve began working at the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Power Plant.

In 1977 they moved to Litchfield Park, Arizona where Steve was involved with the start up of the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station.  He worked there until he retired.

He tenderly cared for his wife Donna until her passing. Together they lived a full life filled with love and service for each other and all those that surrounded them.  They were loved by their family, friends and community.

Later he married Barbara Smith Anderson and moved to Morgan, Utah where he enjoyed the final years of life.

Steve enjoyed hiking, canyoneering, rafting, water and snow skiing, camping, and traveling with his family.  He was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and served as a bishop and patriarch. He loved being surrounded by his and Barbara's family, all of whom he knew most of their lives. Together, Steve and Barbara loved watching their grandchildren in their sporting, theatrical, and academic events.

He is survived by his wife Barbara Anderson Moyers.  His sister Carolyn (Dennis) Jones.  His daughters Gaylene Moyers and Cara (Daniel) Vance.  Barbara’s children Shelly (James) Winn, Brent (Shelyse) Anderson, Shauna (Richard) Johnson, Paul (Diana) Anderson, Becky (Jeff) White, David (Tiffany) Anderson, Brad (Amber) Anderson, Scott (Lindsey) Anderson, Mark (Lindsey) Anderson, and Emily (Bob) Kinnear.
