Steven Michael Wilson
August 26, 1955 – April 28, 2022
Steven Michael Wilson passed away peacefully at his home in Mechanicsville on Thursday, April 28, 2022 around 2:20 pm at the age of 66. He was comforted by his loving partner of 20 years, Juanita Blankenship.
Steve was preceded in death by his parents, Claiborne L. Wilson and June Chenault Wilson; sister, Marisa Napier; and brother William Scott Wilson. He is survived by his daughter, Shannon Wilson; and grandchildren, Dakota Oxendine and Cruze Cash; his brother, Daniel Wilson; and many nieces and nephews.
Steve loved to play softball in the Hanover Senior League; and spend his spare time with his beloved dog, Cody. He was also a great bowler and successfully bowled three perfect games during his life. Another favorite past time of his was singing karaoke. He once competed in a karaoke competition at his local Moose Lodge in which he took third place. When he wasn’t busy with those activities, he loved working outside and would spend hours taking care of his grass every week. Steve was a very neat man and tried to make sure everything was in its place and perfect.
He will be missed, and his absence will surely leave a vacant spot in our hearts for many years. We take solace in knowing that he will be reunited again with his parents, siblings, and his beloved dog, Cody.
A viewing will be held from 6 to 8 pm Tuesday, May 3 at Affinity Funeral Service – Mechanicsville Chapel, 8074 Mechanicsville Tnpk, Mechanicsville, VA 23111. A graveside service will be held at 11am Wednesday, May 4 at Mt. Vernon United Methodist Church Cemetery in Caroline County.
Sending love and prayers to Juanita and Steve’s family. Will be there in spirit. RIP dear friend. 😪💔
I met Steve through Hanover Senior Softball League years ago. He was one of the best players. He also was very humble and one of the nicest people you could ever meet. So sad to hear his passing
Steve was a real gentleman and it was a pleasure to get to know him.
Our prayers are with Juanita.

Steve’s Mom & Dad and my Dad, were not only first cousins, but best friends. I love hearing Steve sing; we all loved to sing! Keep singing with your loved ones in Heaven Steve!!
Steve was one of a kind and a very special friend. Always interested in what was going on in your life. My heart would also feel lighter whenever I would see Steve and Juanita. We will miss you.
Prayers and much love to you, Juanita and Steve’s family.
So sorry and many prayers from Old Church. I have known Steve since my teens when he hung out at the Wright’s house. I had a chance to play ball against him and was on the same team a few times. I would see Steve over the years since High School but really enjoyed seeing him at the games on Wednesday nites. I have let the Wright family know if Steve’s passing. He and Bobby Wright always had the best looking cars in Hanover along with Scott.
