Steven M. Morietta, 61, was called to his eternal resting place on Tuesday, September 27, 2022.
Steven was an avid knife collector, and he enjoyed spending his Sundays barbecuing for his family. He had a very big personality and the laugh to go with it. He was an absolute die-hard St. Louis Cardinals fan even though he would fight with them through the television sometimes as their unofficial couch coach. He also enjoyed fishing and was a proud army veteran. He had a burning love for music, and he was never hesitant to offer help in any situation. Any chance at spare time he had, was spent riding his bike. He was a very giving person, he had a very close knit group of friends and never said no to a motorcycle ride.
Mr. Morietta is preceded in death by his grandparents Frank and Agnes Vivod, his parents Earl Morietta and Sharon Marie Vivod.
He is survived by his spouse Dora Morietta; daughter, Sophia J. Morietta; siblings, Teresa Juenger, Bob Morietta, and Christine Throm. He is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, Gerardo and Rodrigo Moreno, Francisco, Emiliano, and Mateo Estrada, Collin Throm and Morgan McAteer and other relatives and friends.
The family will be receiving condolences on Sunday, October 2, 2022, from 5:00 P.M. to 9:00 P.M. A holy rosary will be recited at 7:00 P.M.
A funeral service will depart on Monday, October 3, 2022, at 10:45 A.M. from Hillside Funeral Home to St. John Neumann Catholic Church.
Pallbearers will be Francisco Estrada, Francisco Daniel Estrada, Emiliano Andres Estrada, Javier Moreno, Javier Gerardo Moreno, Gerardo Javier Moreno, and Rodrigo Javier Moreno.
Services will conclude at the church to proceed to a cremation at a later date.
