Harvard Steve Pepiot, age 72, of Reedsport, Oregon, went to be with the Lord on Friday, September 24, 2021. He was born on February 17, 1949, in Roseburg, Oregon, to Leonard and Irene Pepiot. Steve graduated from high school in 1967 and went on to Oregon College of Education, graduating in 1972.
Steve taught in the Reedsport School District his entire career, impacting the lives of countless children, colleagues, and parents, and becoming well known for his famous Dutch rubs. He taught full time for 30 years and substituted for an additional 14 years.
Steve loved God first and then his family. Survivors include his wife Marti, sons Willie (Terisa) and Jamie (Carmel), sisters Linda (Wally) Croghan and Jeannie (Dale) Daly, and his grandchildren, who were the apples of his eye: Summer, Willow, Corbin, Gwynn, and Adaline.
A celebration of life for Steve will be held in the Reedsport Community Charter School football stadium on Saturday, October 9, 2021, at 2:00 p.m. If it rains, the service will be held in the Reedsport Community Charter School gymnasium.
