Stephen Eugene Boone was born on March 12, 1944 to the late John and Nellie Boone in Caroline County Virginia. He slipped away quietly at his home on June 29, 2018 at 7:30 am.
Steve accepted Christ at an early age. He was educated at schools in Caroline County and Fredericksburg, Virginia.
Steve united in holy matrimony with Thelma Jean Fox on May 1, 1965. To this union, three children were born. Lisa Lorraine, Kevin Maurice and Stephen Lamont Boone.
Steve was truly a devoted family man. He loved spending time with his immediate and extended family. He labored hard to provide for his family and to take care of their needs. He loved getting together to talk, dance and just be around family. It wouldn’t be a stretch to say that when Steve walked into a room – he brought life to the room. Always a smile, always a hello – never a song that Steve could not dance a jig to. Steve was very creative with his hands. He could build anything he set his mind to. He taught his sons the value of hard-work and that they could achieve anything that they set their minds to doing. He was a great example and role model.
Steve worked as a forklift operator and a construction laborer for most of his career. He loved the outdoors and loved building things like picnic tables, sheds and decks. Those close to Steve knew of his meticulous nature and his attention to detail – this quality could always be seen in the work that he produced.
Steve was preceded in death by his father John Boone, his mother Nellie Parker, his father-in-law Robert Parker and his daughter Lisa Lorraine Boone.
Steve leaves to cherish his memory a devoted wife of 53 years Thelma Fox Boone, two sons Kevin Maurice (Tina) Boone and Stephen Lamont (Sharon) Boone. Four grandchildren, Devin and Sydney Boone, Kiara Saylor and Scott Weeden. Four sisters – Margaret Lewis, Mary Frances Strader, Clariest Lewis, Nellie Lucille Harrison (Billy). One Brother – John Boone. Two sisters in Law – Frances George and Burnett Turner. Three brothers in law – Charles Fox, Lloyd (Sheila) Fox and Lewis Fox. A host of nieces, nephews, family and friends.
Steve will be missed by all.
