Steve is survived by his children, Mallory Watson, Gregory Watson and Gregory’s wife, Jenny Watson; and his brother, Tom Watson and Tom’s wife, Susan. He is preceded in death by his mother, Betty, his father, Virgil, and his brother, Jerry.
Steve was born Aug. 9, 1950, in Mansfield, Ohio, to Virgil and Betty. He graduated from Concord University in 1976 with a degree in psychology, and then received his master’s degree in psychology from Radford University in 1980.
After moving to Radford, Va., Steve began working for New River Valley Community Services as a clinical psychologist. His children remember him as a passionate father who encouraged them to pursue their goals. Steve was accomplished at fishing and playing guitar and played publicly with The Fisherman Four during his years in high school in Springfield, Ohio. He also would proudly tell of his many fishing expeditions and near catches of fish “this big.”
The family would like to thank Highland Ridge Nursing and Rehab and Carilion New River Valley Medical Center for their efforts, care and loving kindness. In lieu of flowers, please remember Steve fondly in your thoughts.
