Stephen Walter Viars went home to be with Jesus on Monday, July 18, 2022. He was born on April 29. 1983 to the late Charles “Chuck” Stephen Viars and Pansy May Long in Beckley, WV. Stephen graduated from Independence High School. Stephen’s children Abbie, Kaylee, Andrew, and Maggie were the light of his life. His smile was ear to ear and beaming with delight as he would talk about them. He was so proud of his beautiful children and their accomplishments. Stevie’s personality was larger than life. He loved his people with all of his heart and was always willing to help out in any way he could. He never met a stranger and talked a mile a minute wether he knew you or not. Stevie loved spending time with his children and granddaughters, working out with his brothers at Crossfit Coal, being outdoors, listening to music, and was always excited to learn something new. His family and friends take comfort in knowing he’s in Heaven, walking barefoot, drinking a milkshake. He is free.
He is preceded in death by his father Charles “Chuck” Stephen Viars, mother Pansy May Long, sister Liana Jane Viars, sister Gina Ross, Grandmother MaryAnn Viars, Grandfathers Carl Van Viars and Roby Long, Uncle Lawrence Van Viars, and cousin Shannon Viars.
