He moved to Virginia in December 1997 and in 2004 Fredericksburg, VA became his official hometown. In 2015, Steven graduated from Riverbend High School. His hobbies were centered around automobiles and motorcycles from basic engine work up thru custom interior and exterior builds.
Growing up, he had a passion for airsoft rifles and spent a lot of time in the woods behind his house with camouflaged lean screens and an abundance of friends in homemade Gilly suits and tactical gear. This grew into tradition specifically around weekends of his birthday. He successfully completed any possible adventure and rank as a Cub Scout up thru his Arrow of Light ceremony. Steven was 1st chair with his trombone in the school orchestra, wrestled in middle and high school and a committed football player ending up on the varsity team at Riverbend high school as a right guard on the offensive line.
Steven loved animals, hiking in the woods and excursions while cruising the Caribbean. X-Box was another component in his life with Gunny Gotcha Jr., as his gamertag. At a young age, he was talented in putting together very complex Lego kits, most times never looking at their building instructions. This easily developed into his CADD engineering role and any other particularized work. He was natural in creating artwork and drawings reflecting his views of life and his love for his family.
He leaves behind his mother and father, F. Toula Netos and V. Chad Parlett. His siblings, Tavia Ritchie and Nicholas Bulman. Four uncles, three aunts, nine first cousins, four nephews and two nieces. His grandparents Tony and Georgia Netos (Papou and Yiayia). Furry babies, Cletus and Baxter.
Steven also leaves behind MANY friends that will miss him tremendously.
