Steve was born to Steve and Connie Chavez in Colorado Springs, Colo. He went to school in Pagosa Springs and Colorado Springs, where he loved to spend time with family and friends. Steve enjoyed the simple things in life, such as his family, music and making people laugh. Anyone who was lucky to have known him would say he was the funniest guy who would give the shirt off his back, whether he knew you well or not. He enjoyed the outdoors, doing construction and was always there to lend a hand. Even if life was hard, Steve made anyone around him smile. We will all miss Steve’s morning and night calls with his iconic laugh. Steve will be greatly missed. 

Steve will be reunited in paradise with his father, Steve Chavez Sr., and his niece, Felecia Carabajal, and other family members he cherished. 

The family of the late Steve Urban Chavez Jr. wishes to acknowledge the words of comfort, cards, prayers, food, flowers and other expressions of love, sympathy and kindness shown before, during and after the loss of our beloved Steve. We would also like to thank the loved ones who attended his service.
