Stephen Edward Summerill

August 11, 1942 — July 28, 2022

Stephen Edward Summerill, 79, passed away on July 28, 2022 at his home surrounded by family.  Steve was born on August 11, 1942 in Ogden, Utah to Lorin and Doris Summerill.  He grew up running the streets of Ogden side by side with his identical twin brother, Stanley. The bond these two shared was indescribable their entire lives.


He graduated from Ogden High School in 1961.  He married the love of his life, Judie Faulkner on September 20, 1962 in the Logan, Utah temple.  After working various jobs at places like McDonalds and Ogden Auto Club he settled into the banking world working for Commercial Credit.  In the Fall of 1977 they moved to Pocatello, Idaho with his job.  After Commercial Credit he worked at the Railroad Credit Union and then onto Idaho Central Credit Union.  It was during this time he started taking on side paint jobs to earn extra money to support their 6 children.  It did not take long for him to realize this was his passion and he eventually left the banking world to pursue his career in painting and wallpaper.


 Summerill Painting and Wallpapering was not just a job to him.  It was his joy, his friends, his hobby and something he was always very proud of.  There was not a day that went by he didn’t get up loving to go to work.  His clients all quickly became his friends and he loved talking with them and learning about their life. He gave back to the community willingly and offered his services to everyone.  He is well known due to his character, personality, work ethic, enthusiasm for life and his white overalls (or coveralls as he called them). 


He battled with heart disease for 40 plus years, always with a positive attitude and “not gonna get me done” perspective.  He amazed his doctors when the odds were stacked against him and lived far beyond what any of them ever thought possible.  He lost his sweetheart, also known as “mum” on January 10, 2022 just six months prior to his passing.


He is predeceased by his parents Lorin and Doris Summerill and granddaughter Heidi Summerill Tobler.  He is survived by six children: Heidi (Jack) Plett, Robyn Summerill, Chris (Dani) Summerill, Shaun (Tanielle) Summerill, Kimberly (Torrey) Hymas, and Holly (Josh) Choules, 16 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren.


The family would like to thank all the doctors and providers at Intermountain Heart Institute Heart Failure and Intermountain Heart Institute Heart Rhythm Specialists in Murray, UT, Friends and Family Home Care and Heritage Home Health and Hospice.  Evelyn, Patti, Annie and Annabrit-he loved you.
