Steven Merle Junk

Steve left us peacefully in Lacey, Washington, on April 30, 2011, at the age of 55. He was born on April 4, 1956, in Anchorage, Alaska, to Willard Frank Junk and Marijane (Junk) Ridley. After graduating from Olympia High School in 1974, he attended college for one year at Bremerton Community College, studying journalism.

Steve Junk worked in construction for many years, including Marks Drywall for about 15 years. He was also the light man for the band Porky and the Beans! Steve married twice and has two children, Lindsey Ruth and John Steven. Steve loved to camp and fish, especially on the Deschutes River at his sister’s place. Steve is survived by his children, Lindsey and John; parents, Marijane and William Ridley
Steve was a very comical character that everyone loved, so much so that, even when he was very ill, he was still joking, laughing and sporting that smile that we all know. Some say that he missed his calling and maybe should have been in the entertainment industry. We will miss him so very much and will always smile when we think of him and remember the good times.

He attended LP Brown Elementary, Jefferson Middle School and Olympia High School, graduating from Medical Lake High School in 1974.
