Steven was one of those people who you are blessed to cross paths with in a lifetime. I first met Steve by listening to him give some great lectures at BYU. Then my wife and I got to know Steve and Linda a little more and thoroughly enjoyed them both. I love his book "The Illegal Trial of Christ." I share a lot of "patriotic" views and feelings with Steve. I certainly hope God will allow him to continue to influence key people on earth like Steve did while he was here--including me! May Jesus' supporting influence continue to be with Linda and their family!

This memorial garden is awesome. I was thinking of your Dad on President's Day and I was going to reach out to all of you individually and let you know I was thinking of him/you guys. He was the definition of a patriot and I always loved helping put on those President's Day parties at the office building way back in the day as a kid (I think I was like 11 years old lol). Such a great uncle, I miss him right along with you all!

As we’ve thought about Steve these past few weeks, Wendi’s post about his advice to “be nice, be kind, be sweet, be gentle” kept coming to our minds. We can’t think of any words that better describe Steve. His mother’s letter was a beautiful tribute to her son. Because Steve lived consistent with what he believed, everyone lucky enough to know him knew of his goodness. We will remember Steve for his passion for our country, his devotion to his family, and his love for our Heavenly Father and Savior. We’re grateful Steve and Linda moved to Mesa and into our lives so many years ago. The Allen family will always have a spot in our hearts. We love you all! Clark and Lynnette

We little knew that evening that God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly. In death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone; for part of us went with you, the day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide; and though we cannot see you, you are always at our side. Our family chain is broken and nothing seems the same, but as God calls us one by one, the Chain will link again.

If it weren’t for certain of the sometimes seemingly serendipitous circumstances in our lives, we’d miss some of what turn out to be the greatest people and events in our lives. Our introduction to you, Steve, and your wonderful wife, Linda, and your family, and to the myriad of your extraordinary talents, qualities, and abilities could have been one of those circumstances. Before our “chance” introduction to you about 10 years ago, we had never even heard of you—now, we’ll never forget you! Overnight, and since, our relationship went from unknown to eternal friends! Thank you, Steve, for all that you were, for all that you became and exemplified through your adversity, and for all that you are now, “…mingling with Gods”, and angels, and allowing us through your intermittent ministering proximity to us to see glimpses of the reality of where you are and where we’ll sometime be—where we will again embrace and continue our extraordinary friendship through eternity. Thank you, Steve! And by extension, thank you, Linda!

Thinking of you and your wonderful family today as we look thru photo memories since our paths crossed almost a decade ago. Friends like your family are a rare treasure. It seems like we have been friends forever … especially when the veil parts and we remember “our former friends and birth … from a more exalted sphere.” True friends like you and other “uncommon heroes” have helped us thru what Malachi 3 describes as the refiners fire when the Lord makes up his crown jewels. The family tributes today were heartwarming, tender, joyful … but I think your Bishop expressed my thoughts when he described his career crossroad and his interview with a legal assistant who used to work with Steve. She described Steve as a happy lawyer and an inspiring teacher. Steve did it all and gave his all to honor his family, his clients, his covenants and his Heavenly Father who has said of Steve – welcome home thou good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of thy Lord.” Steve and Linda brought joy to all who have known them and Steve found his greatest joy in his posterity. Fittingly, tomorrow is Hamburger Wednesday … a... Read more

Fittingly, tomorrow is Hamburger Wednesday … a favorite repast for Steve and his inner circle of Constitutional students among whom are Dr. B, Doug, Coconut 🥥 and Randy, Allen, Jim, Todd and Ken. We are all still in line for Steve’s next class about the Illegal Trial of Christ taught by a true disciple of whom Jesus said, I call you my friend. I was blessed to work with Steve on his last couple books, including a few chapters in his Book of Remembrance like the one also mentioned in Malachi 3. Over four decades ago I made a career choice like the Bishop mentioned today. I was promised that if I made the right choice I would be blessed to meet men of moral courage like our Founding Father’s in every dispensation. It seems as if we have known Steve and Linda for a very very long time. Steve – Aloha oe. Until we meet again.

Those who have known Steve are familiar with the passion he had for our forefathers and our country’s historical beginnings. During a period of his life, he devoted much of his time to writing and lecturing about our nation’s forefathers. He is also known for his strong unwavering testimony of our Savior Jesus Christ and His teachings. Don and I have always admired him for his dedication to his wife Linda who is and always will be the love of his life. Together they raised a fine family to which he was committed and who brought them much joy. Steve was a loving and caring man who left behind a legacy of faith, friendship, and a commitment to religious values.

Being neighbors for the few years we were was definitely not long enough. We could not have chosen better neighbors. Steve was always so kind and easy to talk to. What a great man! I was blessed to have known him! I am thankful for the things I learned from him, for he was ALWAYS teaching! Prayers are with his family, always! 💕💕💕

We met Steven and Linda while we all served together as Missionaries in the BYU Pathway Connect Program. They joined the Mission and were in place at the exact moment when we needed missionaries to take over a class (Cohort) of students. Past experiences has shown us that changing missionaries in the middle of the semesters typically results in students dropping out of the program. They were the perfect fit. It was clear to us that the Lord inspired us to assign the cohort to the Allen’s. Their love snd skills kept the students in the program and they all flourished. At the graduation of that first Cohort, we witnessed the mutual love snd respect between the Allen’s and the students. It was truely inspiring. We came to know the Allen’s over the following 2+ years. We’ve come to love them as missionaries and friends. We’ve read their books and come to see that side of their love of this country and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe that if Steven had his health he wouldn’t have departed from his precious Linda. But we know Steven in a wonderful pain-free place, most likely meeting all those he’s written about...

But we know Steven in a wonderful pain-free place, most likely meeting all those he’s written about and wishing he could come back and amend his books with more personal insights from those meetings. Our prayers are with Linda and the family at this time of joyous sorrow.

We have been friends with Steve and Linda for many years. He was such a kind man. We loved his passion of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the founding fathers. So much to learn. Loved his example of quietly being a true disciple of Jesus Christ. He will be missed. Love and prayers to his family.

I remember at an event both Steve and Linda attended how mesmerized everyone was when Steve spoke. He was a gifted author and speaker. I will miss this beautiful person. .

I wept at this news. I will always hold Steve in fond memory and admiration. He was always a good friend and a good example of living the gospel of Jesus Christ. I pray that his family will be comforted and reassured that he is in the best place.

My history includes the Allen family in so many ways. And what a happy history! So many good memories and so many happy associations. Kirk and I had such great fun in La Jolla with Steve and Linda, especially teaching tennis! We have been inspired by Steve’s writings as well. Our love and best wishes go to the Allen family. You have a great legacy to live up to! We will come down to visit you, Linda, and to visit the flower garden in the spring when travel is back to normal!
