Steven was preceded in death by his father, Cecil Grant Somers of Winston-Salem, and was the grandson of the late James and Eloise Murray of Reidsville, NC and the late Grant and Barbara Somers of Gibsonville, NC.

He is survived by his mother, Pamela M. Somers of Raleigh, brother David Somers and his wife, Brooke, nephew Camden and niece Morgan of Raleigh, and brother Adam Somers and his wife, Marianna, and niece Abigail of Massapequa Park, NY. He is also survived by loving cousins, aunts and uncles, and a host of special friends

Everyone would be lucky to have a friend like Steven. Rarely have I come across a person who embodied the true fabrics of friendship--kindness, camaraderie, and compassion--as effortlessly as he did. The kind of person who kept an open door policy at his home where we grew up in Winston-Salem. The kind of person who you could pick up with right where you left off even if it had been months or years. The kind of person who when I asked if he wanted to do something goofy like join a Skee Ball League in Raleigh, treated it like a no-brainer. I am sure there are many fine things that Steven did in his life that none of us will ever no about, because he was the kind of person who did what was right, even if no one was looking. I am fortunate to have known him and to call him my friend.

Stu came to visit me in March 2014 to run the Publix Half marathon in Atlanta. It was just one of the many great memories he and I shared - layovers for beer in Hartsfield Jackson Airport, Braves games, undergrad and grad school, lunch at Sammys, his incredible behind the back catch in intramural football and much more. Very fortunate to call him a friend!

Steven,
You will be deeply missed, but the memories we created will last forever. We had tons of fun, and we appreciated the time you put in to get to know Chase.
Wishing your family strength and peace during this hard time.

Jin, Katie and Chase :hearts:

With such a long history, both good and bad, the things that stand out most are your fun loving personality, infectious smile, the affection you showed your family and friends, and your caring heart. From high school sweethearts growing up together to working adults grabbing a beer at your favorite places, I will always hold a special place in my heart for you. You will forever be a part of who I am and I will always have love for you. Psalm 34:18

Steven,

Words cannot describe how much you mean to us. You have been there for some of the most fun and joyful occasions in our lives, and they were more fun and joyful because you were there. From football games to beach days and brewery stops, to being a groomsman in our wedding, you have been such a big part of our lives, and we feel so blessed to have been a part of yours. You were more than a best friend, you were family, and no one will ever be able to take your place. You will forever hold a special place in our hearts, and we will always cherish the memories we have together. We miss you and will love you always.

Love,
Jeff and Rachel

From my boy who got me through Stat Theory, to a groomsman in our wedding, to the man who grew up to be the best of our wolfpack, we will forever hold you dear. Your friendship meant so much to Sara and me and we will never forget you. We cherish the memories of our adventures near and far and we will always love you.

God bless ya Stevie. I will miss you mate. Words alone can't express how much joy and laughter you bought to so many. Honored to know you. I remember the lads trips to the outer banks and they were a great time. God bless you and sincerest condolences to your family at this difficult time.

Steven, myself, my brother Jason and his girlfriend Ashley gearing up for the lone Panthers loss of 2015-2016 @ Atlanta.

He was an amazing friend such that I'd fail to describe it accurately. I will miss him dearly.

Stu, you will always have a special place in my heart and mind.

We are so deeply sorry for your loss. Steven was an amazing young man. He had an infectious laugh and a true love for life and fun. Always making others smile, he was quite the jokester, much like his brother Adam. All of our love, prayers and thoughts are with you all during this difficult time :two_hearts:

With love,
Cristina, Michael, Tyler and Nolan Lynch
