Steven Antonio Davis 64 was called home to be with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on May 29, 2021. Steven was born on October 3, 1956, in Aiken, South Carolina. He was raised in Aiken County, South Carolina and attended Aiken High School, home of the Hornets. Steven was introduced to the Lord at an early age, regularly attending Mount Zion AME Church.
Steven served his country as a Medical Specialist in the United States Army, receiving an honorable discharge in 1978. Following his military service, Steven resided with his mother and siblings in Jamaica Queens, New York briefly before returning to his childhood home of Aiken County, South Carolina. Upon his return Steven was employed at the Graniteville Company where he worked as a manufacturer of commercial textiles.
Desiring to reside closer to his family, Steven returned to Jamaica Queens, New York where he was a longtime employee of Northport Veterans Administration (VA) Medical Center in Northport, New York.
Upon retiring from Northport, Steven moved to Virginia Beach, Virginia where he became an active member of the Tabernacle of Prayer Church. While attending the Tabernacle of Prayer Church, Steven was active in the Usher Ministry and most importantly, served as the Armor Bearer for his pastor and mother Dr. Minnie B. Washington. Although Steven did not have biological children, he specifically had a soft spot for the youth, as he would often offer mentorship or a listening ear, nurturing young children, especially his great nieces and nephews. He was very funny, kindhearted and the type of man who would give you the shirt off his back.
Steven loved sports, especially the New York Giants and the New York Knicks. He enjoyed fishing, taking care of his “Mother Dearest”, and teaching his nieces and nephews to drive.
Steven was affectionately known as “Stevie” to his closest family members.
Steven leaves to cherish his memories his mother Dr. Minnie B. Washington; brothers Bobby Davis (Terry), Geryl Davis (Dibbi), Kip Davis, Fred Davis, Bernard Washington (Sheila); sisters Cheryl Davis-Williams, Caroline Davis, Minnie Alisa Riddick (Spencer); aunts Valerie Charles and Clara Stevens; uncle John Ferguson; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
