Steven B. Golson

July 15, 1985 – Jan. 24, 2021

It is with deepest sadness that the family of Steven B. Golson, 35 years young, announces his passing.

Born on July 15, 1985 in Anchorage, Alaska, but raised in Homer, Steven was an incredible man whose love for a flip of the hair and the reflection in the mirror knew no bounds. He had a dark sense of humor, loved his abs, and could light up any room with his sarcasm and thousand-watt smile. He left this world on Jan. 24, 2021 in the comfort of his own home. His passing leaves an immeasurable hole in the hearts of those who loved him.

Steven is survived by his loving fiancée and adventure companion, Tara McDade, and their child, due to be born this September; mother, Collette Martin; father, Robert Golson; sisters, Tonya Nehren, Janelle Golson, and Christine Golson; as well as brother-in-laws Curtis Nehren and Lester Mitchell; nieces Lanie and Alexis; nephew Diesel; and aunt Mary and uncle Duane Richards.

Steven lived his life to the fullest, never turning down the chance to seek new adventures. He loved everything North Face, especially their bags, and always stood by his personal philosophy that “Real men wear pink.” He shared a passion for Game of Thrones with his mother and was always quick with a joke. He loved watching true crime shows with his fiancée and listening to music in the car together. He loved his work at the family business, Richards Masonry, and was looking forward to carrying on that heritage. Steven was known for always being his aunt Mary’s go-to guy for everything. He was someone she and everyone else he loved could count on to show up for them and get any task done, most of the time with a smile.

Steven will be remembered most for being hard-working, dedicated, considerate, kind, endearingly vain, compassionate, the best gift giver, a secret hopeless romantic and a man who always — always — put those he cared about before himself. He lived a life of service, working on his good karma point. And with his keen sense of humor, he would’ve pointed out that only the good die young … so he must be better than the rest.

Steven lived his life the only way he knew how — all in, every day. His legacy is one to be proud of. Someone like Steven can never die. His residency in the hearts of so many takes up too much space not to create an eternal ripple effect. The impact he made on his family and friends will endure and his memory will live on in their hearts and lives forever.

Celebration of his life will be announced via his sister, Christine Golson’s Facebook page.
