Steve Mapes, February 18, 1942 to July 19, 2017
Steve grew up in Garden Home and Tigard where he graduated from high school in 1960. After studying at the University of Oregon and Portland State, he married Esta Anderson in 1965. They moved back to Garden Home where they raised their two children, Kevin and Kelli. Steve worked as a supervisor for the Portland Water Bureau, where he retired in 1998.
Steve was an avid runner, completing several marathons, cheering on the Ducks and Trail Blazers and supporting his children in their activities. Steve and Esta traveled the world and loved returning to their beach house at Road’s End. Steve was a wonderful community member and could always be counted on for Garden Home activities. Memorials to Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
