OBITUARY

Steven Emory Yonge

November 6, 1959July 1, 2020

Steven Emory Yonge, sincere friend to all he met, passed away suddenly on Wednesday, July 1, 2020 at the age of 60. Born on November 6, 1959 to Ann and Preston Yonge, Steve grew up in Mobile, AL. From grade school on, Steve was known for his big heart, his ability to nurture friendships, and his penchant for practical jokes. Cooking was one of Steve’s biggest joys. Whether making ham sandwiches for a family road trip, or manning the grill while barbecuing chicken for a crowd, Steve was the go-to chef in the Yonge family. Remembered as a gregarious guy and the life of the party, the fast lane was often the only lane for Steve. When recounting stories about Steve’s numerous pranks, his family might comment, “only Steve.” Of late, his favorite quip was “I’m in,” whether it was to help a friend or drink a beer. Though known as mischievous, Steve could be serious too. He demonstrated that side of his personality with his desire to develop his own business, a goal he worked hard to achieve. Steve loved his family and friends dearly and never turned away a request for help. In the words of his granddaughter Emma Kate, “Pop can fix anything.” Steve is survived by his wife of 34 years Cyndee, his son Colby, daughter Emory, granddaughter Emma Kate, father Preston, step-mother Barbara, brother Lynn, sister Becky Sherrill, and many other family members and devoted friends who loved him. He is predeceased by his mother Ann E. Yonge. A celebration of Steve’s life will be held July 6 at Radney Funeral Home, Mobile. The family will receive friends at the funeral home from 10 a.m. until the 12 p.m. celebration of life. Condolences may be offered at www.radneyfuneralhome-mobile.com.
