He was preceded in death by brother Jeffrey Birkestol and niece Rachel Birkestol. He is survived by siblings: Derek Birkestol, Bryan Birkestol, Victoria Yeager and Darcy Dreger. In his youth, Steve enjoyed motocross racing with his brothers. He tried his hand at various vocations. For the Stillaguamish Tribe Steve was a fish tagger, a Fisheries officer and also a tribal fisherman. Steve was a longtime collector of comic books and baseball cards. His greatest talent was his art. Steve could draw or paint anything, and it would be amazing.
