Keeping Things Running Smoothly!

Steve Salisbury was born in Portland and was born to build, fix and create! He is the youngest of three boys and has two sisters. He was raised in Sandy until his mom met and married Dick Wand, from Corbett. Steve moved with his mom and brothers to Corbett and began attending the Corbett schools when he was just eight years old. His stepdad was a home builder and also installed septic systems and did land surveys. Steve learned early on to drive and operate a back hoe, tractor, and bulldozer. When Steve was not working with Dick, he played basketball. He loved the sport and played all through middle and high school. He also loved to be in the great outdoors. After graduating from Corbett High School, he began working at an art foundry, doing welding. When he was on a hunting trip to the Eagle Cap Wilderness in Eastern Oregon, he met a girl on a horse. She was hunting with her family as well and it turns out she also was a Corbett High graduate! Trudi Becker was two years older and they had known of each other, but were not friends. They got back home and started dating! Steve began work at NAPA Auto Parts as a truck driver and one who loaded and unloaded freight. He worked nights for five years. Steve and Trudi married in 2005 and currently have four children, ages 12, 8, 3 and 8 months. Trudi is a Portland firefighter and they live in Estacada on acreage with their seven horses. After working at NAPA, Steve went to work with his step dad, doing construction. The recession hit in 2008, so he then went to horse shoeing school for two years. He and Trudi are devoted parents who love raising their children in the country. In 2013, Steve applied for a maintenance position at the Corbett School District with Mark Wilson. Together they fix and repair just about everything imaginable! Steve loves the fact he is back on campus where he is quite familiar with the buildings since attending school there years earlier. He appreciates the fact that each day is different and there is always something to work on!
