PRICE-On May 24, 2015, Stefan Blair Feichko, age 60, passed away unexpectedly.
He was born April 23, 1955 in Price to Ervin and Violet Brundage Feichko.
Stefan was an active member of the United Mine Workers of America and a former employee of Wattis and Hiawatha mines where he served as Chairman on the UMWA Safety Committee. He was a lifelong resident of Carbon County and a member of the Catholic Church. Stefan's passion in life was his family and farming. He was a talented craftsman who enjoyed woodworking. Stefan loved the outdoors, especially hunting and fishing with his daughter and his nieces and nephews. He loved sharing his knowledge with his family and passing down his knowledge for generations to enjoy.
Family meant the world to Stefan and his daughter Dakota was the center of his universe for the past 18 years. He also cherished the many wonderful years that he shared with his mother. Stefan loved caring for his mom and they could always count on each other. He was deeply proud of Dakota and her love Allen. Although Stefan may be gone, his joy will live on through Dakota's joyful laughter.
Stefan is still watching over his beloved daughter and her partner, Dakota Feichko (Allen); his mother, Violet Feichko; daughter, Holly; two sisters, Carol Rogers and Violet Adams; brother, Ervin, Jr. (Susan) Feichko; and many loving nieces, nephews and cousins.
Stefan joined his father Ervin Feichko, Sr. and the two of them are no doubt laughing and talking about the good old days.
