Steven ‘Steve’ Vie

Steven Vie, a longtime resident of Ridgecrest, passed away on Sept. 1, 2018, in Sequim, Wash., following a courageous battle with cancer. Steve leaves behind children Steven (Kelly), Kelly and David (Anne); and grandchildren Sutton, Miriam and Reid.

Steve and his wife of 53 years, Mary, moved to Ridgecrest in 1967 after he was recruited from the University of Arizona architectural program by the Department of Defense to work at China Lake Naval Weapons Center (currently NAWS). He worked for the Public Works Department as an architectural engineering technician before retiring after 31 years. He was also well-known for his participation in various youth sport programs, notably Pony and Little League baseball, where he held multiple board and coaching positions for 17 years.

The family would like to thank all those who sent cards and well wishes to Steve during his illness. He very much looked forward to them and appreciated the thoughts and kindness.
