Stephen W. Killingsworth

Steve was born on September 21st, 1948 and called home on September 4th, 2022. A lifelong resident of Orlando, he was preceded in death by his parents N.D. and Marie Killingsworth. He is survived by his loving wife of 52 years, Joy, and his two daughters, Michelle (Brad) Chancey of Orlando, and Heather (Mark) Kingsley of Madison, AL. He has four grandchildren who were the loves of his life, Ellie and Grady Chancey, and Chase and Camden Kingsley. He is also survived by his sister, Shirley Jones, and several nieces and nephews.

Steve grew up in College Park. He attended Lake Silver Elementary, Lee Middle School, and Edgewater High School, where his daughters would both later graduate as well. He attended Orlando Junior College and the Orlando Aviation Academy. He worked in aviation for several years before transitioning to the business machines industry. He was the owner of Steve Killingsworth Copiers and Supplies for nearly 45 years before retiring.

Steve was a lifelong member of St. John Lutheran Church in Winter Park, where he was both baptized and confirmed. Steve loved to boat and fish, spending as much time on the water as possible and passing along his love for fishing and the outdoors to his grandchildren. He loved Florida Gators and UCF Knights football games and spent every Saturday in the fall attending games or watching them play.

Steve was liked by all he crossed paths with and never met a stranger. He was a wonderful man who was known for his kind, welcoming and outgoing spirit. He will be missed greatly by all of his family and many friends.

A memorial service and visitation will be held at St. John Lutheran Church in Winter Park on Sunday, September 11th, at 3pm.

    We are truly blessed with special people in our lives, and that is especially true with you Steve. With Matt in the early mix, we have delighted in teasing and goading each other over the years. While we are close in years and have graduated out of the next generation, it is still very difficult to say so long to old friends, and it has become harder to gain new old friends. so we have come to cherish who we have in our circle. Thank you for being in my life, and sharing your memories with another Orlando born Florida Cracker.

    Steve, with your passing I have lost my very best friend. You and I have known each other for over 30 years, have fished together, joked together, and rooted for the Gators together. You and Joy have joined my wife Sharon and I at Reel Fish so many times to catch up on our families and see pictures of your grandson catching fish. I can't tell you how greatly I am going to miss texting with you every few days setting up our next time to get together. I loved you and am going to miss you forever. I can't get the words "Steve passed away on Sunday" out of my mind.

    The family and I will surely miss Steve, the girls I'll remember how kind he was to them throughout the years. Steve set an example by his evenhanded approach to everything never rushing but yet always efficient. the past 26 years would for have been the same without you.
    Thank you for letting me share a small part of your journey.

    We will surely miss seeing your kind face and sweet smile but are at peace to know that your smiles and laughter are all the sweeter now for where you are currently!

    Losing someone you love
    is like losing a part of yourself
    You miss them and you miss
    who you were with them.
    Nothing will ever replace that.
    I knew Steve for over 10 years. He was a humble,
    gentle man that truly cared when he asked you
    "How ya doin?" He was engaged in your answer.
    Rest in Peace my friend.
