Steven Dale Davey

October 27, 1964October 14, 2021

Steven Dale Davey entered his heavenly home very peacefully on the morning of October 14th, 2021 at the age of 56. Steven had battled many years of severe health issues with amazing strength, a wonderful attitude, and faith.

Steven was born in Alexandria, Virginia and graduated from Woodbridge High School and continued his education with an Associate’s Degree in Criminal Justice from Midlands Technical College in Columbia, SC. He worked as a computer analyst for several different companies over the years including the FBI, The University of South Carolina where he ran the library systems for USC, S.C. Blue Cross Blue Shield, and after moving to the Western North Carolina area, with Dixon Hughes. He also worked on a volunteer basis from 1996-2000 as a Lexington County Sheriff’s Reserve Deputy.

Steven had so many interests but his favorite hobby was working on automobiles. He restored many cars over the years and could fix just about anything. He enjoyed computer work, building projects, and giving back to others. He also enjoyed coin collecting. Steven was an avid fisherman and loved surf fishing especially at the Outer Banks of North Carolina where his parents took their family on many trips over his life. He always looked forward to that time with his family and it was a blessing to him. He was a member of the Arden Seventh-day Adventist church where he was dearly loved.

The love of his life and his best friend was his wife of 25 years, Jean. Their bond and devotion to each other was such a blessing to him and they loved every moment they could be together. Their shared faith and the prayers of many as well as great medical care helped Steven over the years with his health issues. Steven’s gentle spirit, kindness, sweetness and wonderful sense of humor will be remembered by all who knew him. He truly shared the love of Jesus to others.

Steven is survived by his wife Jean Dozier Davey; his parents Russell and Joyce Davey; his brother and sister-in-law Scott and Karen Davey; niece Hanna and nephew Drew Davey; aunt Billy Faye Wilson; aunt Linda Galbraith, and sister-in-law and brother-in-law Tibby and Homer Steedly; best friend Matt Martin (Angela) and his beloved cats.

Visitation will be 10:00 a.m. on October 19th prior to the service.
