Steven Aamold

October 14, 1952 ~ January 01, 2018

Steven "Steve" Ray Aamold passed away suddenly on January 1, 2018 at his home in Bozeman, Montana, after a courageous year and a half battle with lung cancer. Steve was born in Great Falls, MT on October 14, 1952, to Roland and Faye Aamold. Before graduating from Harrison High School in 1971, he lived in Stanford, Ennis, Butte and Harrison, MT. Steve enlisted in the Army in 1971 and served for three years during the Vietnam war.

After graduating from the Aviation Maintenance Technology program in Helena, MT, Steve worked for a few years as a mechanic in Yellowstone National Park and the final twenty years before retirement as a property and maintenance manager in Bozeman, MT. He had many talents and could fix almost anything mechanical or electrical.

Steve was a life-long learner and could intelligently converse on just about any subject. He extensively researched areas of interest. In addition to learning, he enjoyed reading, panning for gold, trips to the Oregon Coast, watching the Three Stooges, and cooking for his friends. He was an excellent cook and it was a blessing that he cooked and enjoyed New Year’s Day dinner with friends. Steve was a very private person and frequently grumpy on the outside, but had a warm heart of gold on the inside.

Steve’s parents, Roland Aamold and Faye Young, preceded him in death. He is survived by his stepmother, Dolly Aamold of Butte, MT; sisters, Gayle Hokanson (Garry Spitzer) and Rhonda Mosteller of Bozeman, MT; brother, Don (Bunny) Preston of Lakeside, MT; nieces, Heidi (Brian) Morrison and Aimee Hokanson of Bozeman, MT; nephews, Lance (Natasia) Ek and Aaron Ek of Walla Walla, WA and many friends including Tim Bell and Frank Baril of Bozeman, MT.

A celebration of life will be held from 4 until 7 p.m. on Friday, January 12, 2018, at 644 St. Andrews Dr., Bozeman (586-2987). 

Donations in Steve’s honor may be made to the Bozeman Health Foundation (designation to the Cancer Center),  931 Highland Blvd., Suite 3200, Bozeman, MT 59715 or a charity of your choice.

Arrangements are in the care of Dokken-Nelson Funeral Service. Condolences may be left at www.dokkennelson.com.
