Beloved Husband, Father, Grandfather and Brother Stormy Steven Decker passed away at his home at the age of 62 the morning of November 17, 2021 due to a chronic illness.
Stormy was born in Craig, Colorado April 24, 1959 to Lane and Harriette Decker, as the youngest of 7 children. He attended all of his schooling in Craig. At an early age he developed a great love of the outdoors, fishing and horses.
He married Jeanie Demille in 1977 in Craig, where he had his first son, Shaun. They were later divorced. He married Shannon Stana Preece in 1991 In Centennial, Wyoming after many years together, and had 2 sons; Zackariah and Kyle. He was widowed by Stana in April 1999. He then spent the rest of his life with Deserae Aaron Allred. They spent many beautiful years together until officially being married February 28, 2020.
Stormy was a man of many trades including horse trainer, oilfield, mining, grocery management, and manufacturing. He spent the longest at Evanston Carbon Fiber where he retired due to health reasons late 2019.
Stormy will always be remembered as a kind and caring man, whose quiet strength and resilience made him a rock for those close to him. He was happiest and most at peace being in the mountains, beside a gently rolling stream, casting his line in the water, with his dog beside him. He always had a special relationship with the animals in his life, and cared deeply for them. He was a strong friend, who listened carefully and always had helpful advice. He was a devoted husband and father who always made you feel special when you were beside him. We will miss everything about him, including his sparkling blue eyes, infectious smile and laugh, camping and fishing stories and relentless teasing.
He is survived by his loving wife Deserae Allred of Evanston, Wyoming, sons Shaun Decker of Evans, Colorado, Zackariah Decker (Jeri) of Evanston, Wyoming and Kyle Decker (Beverly) and granddaughter Vasti of Jacksonville, North Carolina, dog Savannah and cat Jack, sisters; Angela Tucker (Green River, WY), Teresa Johnson (Cape Girardeau, Missouri), Donna Carter (Craig, Colorado), Judy Rogers (Coos Bay, Oregon) and Audrey Bergeson, (Encampment, Wyoming), as well as numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Lane and Harriette, his second wife Shannon, his brother Casey and many beloved pets, especially his Reggie dog.
Due to his request there will be no service. His family and friends will hold a Celebration of Life where his ashes will be spread at his favorite fishing spot in the Grey’s river late next spring or early summer. In lieu of flowers, the family requests any who wish to, to make a donation in his name to your favorite nature or conservation effort that protects the pristine beauty of the natural world that he loved so much. We’ll miss you Stormy, remember you fondly forever, and we were lucky to have you in our lives.
