Steven Scott Swanson

Steven Scott Swanson joined his brother, Kevin on June 24, 2024. Steve is survived by his children, Joshua and Courtney, Olivia and Luke; brothers Jason and Aaron; partner Dylan; and parents Sandy and Don, who birthed him on Sept 24, 1967. He was supposed to arrive on October 15th, but in true Steve fashion, he was unable to wait those 3 weeks and started living when HE was ready.

Steve was always full speed ahead; he knew life was precious and that every single moment had to be enjoyed. He helped us dream and then achieve. He embodied love and generosity.

Steve treated life like the ocean and always dove in head-first. There was so much to explore, always going a little further, always going a little deeper. He was a wave, ferocious and free, until dashed against life’s rocks. Then gently returned to the depths of our hearts, where he was always meant to be.

Rock In Peace, Steve. Rock on.

In his honor, there will be a visitation on Saturday, June 29, 2024 from 10:00am to 12:00pm at Crowder Funeral Home in Dickinson, Texas. A celebration of life will follow at 12:00pm

  2. Steve was my best friend for over 20 years. We had the BEST time traveling the country going to the football games on our annual football trips. All the great concerts we also went to. So many memories I will cherish through the rest of this journey through life. You taught me to live life to the fullest and you were an example by the way you always did what you wanted and explored all that life has to offer. I love you and will see you again.

  4. Steven was a kind, sweet and generous person. Our hearts go out to you Dylan for your loss. Words cannot describe how sorry we are. We can’t imagine your pain and grief at this time. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers. May your happy memories outweigh the sadness you are feeling.

  5. Thank you uncle Steve for always making me laugh and smile. We will all love and miss you! 💗❤️🌈

  6. It hasn’t been easier since these last couple of days. Nonetheless, I think it’s even harder trying to process the fact that you are no longer here with us. My mind often drifts away with these why, what if, could have, would have thoughts hoping maybe that will miraculous somehow changes this painful reality that you are, in fact, gone forever. The memories of all of us drinking, talking, smoking, and swimming couple of weeks ago still fresh and warm, yet so painful every time I’m reminded. You always spoke so passionately of your love for traveling, writing and recently, the excitement of publishing your books. Your unconditional love and encouragement for Dylan was admirably beautiful. Your patience of listening and explaining to the kids is a gift. Your ability of turning a house into a dream home often put us all in awe. These are the beautiful memories of a great human, a brother- YOU. As we all try to grace ourselves through this senseless time, I’m reminded that all the ones we love don’t really go away, that they- YOU walk beside, near and with us everyday…may your soul finally rest in peace because until then, I’ll be seeing you again!

    Love always Uncle Steve!

  7. Steve showed me that in life where it was full with a lot of hardship and struggle, there was always light and good things to look for. For Steve to be gone is hard to accept and to think that I have to live the rest of my life without you is unbelievable. You are one of the most kindest people I’ve ever had in my life, and no one can ever replace that person. Until we meet in the next life, thank you for being such a huge influence in my life. Rest well Uncle Steve. Love you.

  8. It is hard to think that you are not with us. We will always miss you. Rest In Peace Uncle Steve.

  9. It pains so much to know that Steve is no longer with us. For the past 5 years that I have interacted with him he became part of family and and best friend.

    I am so sorry for family and friends for the loss.
