Steve Holman, 69, died peacefully at his home in Page, AZ on September 20, 2023, after an almost three-year battle with cancer. He was a kind and patient man who loved spending time with family, friends, and his dog. He lived with a humble nature and curiosity that endeared him to everyone he met. Steve was an honest man, a loyal friend and confidant, and embodied a unique blend of hard work, creativity, generosity, street smarts, and a wry sense of humor.
Born on April 21, 1954 to George and Carla Holman, Steve grew up surfing, skin diving, and riding motorcycles in San Pedro, CA. He loved fishing, hunting, exchanging stories over a beer, restoring his old trucks, playing golf, and gazing at the stars. He was always on the move, keeping his mind active and his hands busy building, learning, and living.
Steve had a passion for exploring the outdoors. He knew most of the dirt roads within 100 miles as the crow flies, and spent every summer camping and fishing in “God’s Country” at his favorite spot up at Row Lakes on Boulder Mountain. Steve was an avid collector of interesting rocks, arrowheads, and antique treasures he found while exploring the outdoors on his quad. He enjoyed Classic Rock music and he wore Hawaiian shirts while not taking life too seriously.
Steve and his wife Tina had a collaborative and caring relationship, building a business and raising three “crummy kids” together. Their marriage was based on mutual support and a deep love for each other. Together they built and ran Holman Plumbing with quality and pride for over 35 years. Steve plumbed the most essential buildings in his community, including Lake View Elementary, Page Middle School, Page Hospital, the Public Safety Facility, and many hotels and commercial properties. He also designed and built the home in which he and Tina raised their family.
Though we mourn his passing, let us remember Steve for the joy he brought into our lives. His spirit lives on in the countless stories, memories shared, and the many fish that got away.
Steve is survived by his loving wife of 46 years Tina, his sons, John, David, and Michael, daughter-in-law Ursula, hānai son Ross Parker, and his grandson Sam. Steve joins his parents and brother Clifford in eternal rest.
A celebration of Steve’s life will take place on December 16th, 2023, at Page Elks Lodge at 2:00pm. In keeping with Steve’s aloha spirit, attendees are encouraged to wear Hawaiian shirts. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations in Steve’s memory be made to

As we say goodbye to Steve, let’s remember to embrace life’s adventures, savor its open dirt roads, and above all, share laughter and cold ones with the people we love. He wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.
