Steven Clark Moon

Steve came out of the womb June 4, 1958 (closely followed by his twin Stan) with a force that projected him his entire life. His mother, Rosemary Moon, claimed she had to tell the doctor there was another baby coming.

Growing up in St. Ignatius, these mischievous twins were involved in antics from day one. Whether it was rocking their cribs to lock the adults out of their bedroom, communicating in their own language, filling the propane tank with the garden hose, switching classrooms, or teasing their older brother Bill and older sister Marianne, the twins always kept others on point!

Steve, the extrovert, worked at The Malt Shop during high school. He changed sprinkler pipes for local farmers, and went on to remodel a building in Polson with his father, George Moon, turning it into a business called Moon’s Saloon. Many happy moments with friends occurred in this business as well as on Flathead Lake where Steve had a boat with two speeds: off and full speed ahead.

Selling his business, he found his path working as an electrician at nationwide commercial construction sites. He eventually moved to the Bay Area where he met his future wife, Janette Lindquist. The two were married on July 11, 1993, spent 14 years in the city, active in Lion’s Club, Businessmen’s Fellowship and the Gideons.

Steve was an accomplished handyman who could do anything with just his hands and some tools. He built a house in El Cerrito, Calif., and owned a trailer court in Gold Hill, Oregon. His last years were spent in Rogue River, Oregon in poor health. He died Sept. 17, 2022.

He is survived by his wife, Janette (Rogue River, OR), his brother Bill and sister Marianne (Missoula, Mt) and several nieces and nephews.

In his memory, Steve would want you to say hello to a stranger and give a helping hand to someone in need.

Rest in peace, Steve. You are so loved.
