It is with deep and sincere sorrow that we announce the passing of
Steven James Holstrom, who left us on Jan. 2, 2024.

Born in Torrance, California on May 22, 1952, Steven, fondly known as
"Steve" to friends and family, lived a life full of adventure, laughter,
and love. A proud resident of Lake Havasu City, Arizona, Steve was a man
of many talents and interests.

As a retired general contractor in construction, he had a love for
building that extended far beyond his profession. Whether it was
tinkering in his workshop or constructing a grand vision, Steve's hands
were never idle. He found joy in boating and fishing, always at peace
when he was on the water. His wit and humor brought laughter and
lightness to any gathering, and his accomplishments as a World Champion
water skier were a testament to his determination and skill.

Steve almost went to the Olympics until an unfortunate injury, but his
spirit remained indomitable. Steve was the cherished father of Jill
Whitney, Jeremy Holstrom, Travis Holstrom, and Nichole Holstrom. He was
the adored brother of Peter Holstrom and Diane Lannan, and the beloved
grandfather of seven.

Steve is preceded in death by his parents, James and Melcena Holstrom,
and his loyal canine companion, Tonka. In the words of Mark Twain, "The
secret of getting ahead is getting started." Steven embraced this
philosophy, always ready for a new project or adventure. His zest for
life was infectious, and his presence in our lives will be sorely

Please join us in celebrating Steve's vibrant life by sharing your
memories and uploading photos to his memorial page on the Lietz-Fraze
Funeral Home website. Your stories and pictures will serve as comforting
