Steven Eric Schweizer
Resident of Sunnyvale

Age 48, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, June 22, a loving, devoted husband, father, son and friend. Preceded in death by his father, Robert Schweizer, in 1975, survived by his wife, Colleen Yamada and children, Chloe, Alex, Evan and Vivien Schweizer, sister Cathy Heinitz (Tom), niece Haley, nephew Ryley, and mother Carol Schweizer, also "extended family" Craig and Cathie Derbidge.

After earning his BS in Mechanical Engineering from CSULB, and MS in Engineering Science from Dartmouth College, Steve pursued his education continuously until his fourth child was born, eventually also finishing a BSEE from San Jose State. A born engineer, his interests ranged from wristwatches, to calculators, to vacuum cleaners, and especially cars. He could fix anything, from the mundane toaster, to our family car, a '77 Dodge Van, to a computer network. He enjoyed a small but deep circle of friends at home and at work. We will always remember his unique sense of humor, amazingly analytical mind, quiet sensitivity and love for his family and friends.

We never doubted Steve would be there for us, if it was in his power, through all the trials and challenges of life. Rest easy in your "happy place", knowing that you are in our hearts forever.

A Celebration of Steve's Life will be held Sat, June 30 at 11:00, Alta Mesa Funeral Home, Palo Alto. In lieu of flowers, please do something special with your family in his memory.
