Steve is survived by his children Mallory Watson, Gregory Watson and Gregory’s wife Jenny Watson; and his brother Tom Watson and Tom’s wife Susan. He is preceded in death by his mother Betty, his father Virgil and his brother Jerry.

Steve was born on August 9, 1950 in Mansfield, OH to Virgil and Betty. He graduated from Concord University in 1976 with a degree in psychology and then received his Masters Degree in psychology from Radford University in 1980 .

His children remember him as a passionate father who encouraged them to pursue their goals.

He also would proudly tell of his many fishing expeditions and near catches of fish “this big”.

The family would like to thank Highland Ridge Nursing and Rehab and Carilion New River Valley Medical Center for their efforts, care and loving kindness.
