Stephen (Steve) Wayne Thomason, 49, of Crestview, FL departed this world on March 7, 2019 after a recent diagnosis of pancreatic cancer.
Steve was born in Rome, GA, but had lived in Florida for the majority of his life. He loved the beach and the outdoors and enjoyed hunting, fishing and being on the water. Steve was a very generous man who was always willing to help friends or family. He was well known to his family, friends and co-workers for his rich sense of humor and dry wit. We will remember the good times and laughter we shared.
The most important people in Steve’s life were his cherished wife and best friend, Maeghan and their beloved son, Michael. He was an honorable, Christian father and husband. His family was his purpose and he was happiest in their company. Steve and Maeghan are members of West Rome Church of God of the Union Assembly, Rome GA. Over the last few years, he grew spiritually and we are comforted that he is now home with our Lord, Jesus Christ.
He is survived by his loving wife, Maeghan Thomason and his beautiful son, Michael Wayne Thomason; father and step-mother Ken Thomason (Sue) of Rockmart GA; sister Vicki Thomason (Wayne Wilkey) of Rome GA; brother Scott Seipel (Karen) of Kokomo IN; sister Kimberly Freeman (Gary) of Newnan GA; sister Kisha Kiser (Lamont) of Cartersville GA; sister Tandalea Mendez (Wilian) of Rockmart GA; father in-law and mother-in-law Rick Gregory (Kay) of Navarre FL; many nieces and nephews and treasured friends considered to be family.
Steve was preceded in death by his mother, Mary Ellen Stephens Thomason; paternal grandparents Finley Wayne Thomason (Jessie Lynn); and maternal grandparents Clarence Henry Peck (Mildred).
