On Tuesday, April 28, 2021, Stephen Daniel Tidler, passed away at the young age of 33.

Stephen was born on July 31, 1987 in Phoenix, AZ.

He attended Blue Ridge Unified School District. His short working career included working in the family pawn, jewelry and bail bond businesses. He also pursued a life on the open water with his US Coast Guard certifications. He was briefly married to his long-time girlfriend, Kim Camp.

His enjoyment of life included lake and ocean activities, fishing, archery, golfing, 4-wheeling, traveling and camping. He was an avid music lover and enjoyed playing the guitar. During the winter months, you would find him at Sunrise or other resorts snowboarding with friends and family. Most of all, Stephen enjoyed hanging out with his beloved daughter Emma in Tonto Basin, going on midnight walks, sledding, re-watching Adam Sandler movies, and quoting lines from Billy Madison.
