John Steven FifeMarch 14, 1993 ~ July 27, 2017 (age 24)
John Steven Fife, age 24, of Stokesdale NC, passed away unexpectedly on July 27th, 2017.
Steven was preceded in death by his father, William Harold Fife Jr. He is survived by his Mother and Step-Father Wynett and Jeff Walker, of Stokesdale NC, his sister Amber Steele of Winston-Salem, NC, his brother Tony Fife of Gordo, Alabama, his step-sister Melanie Walker, of High Point NC, his nieces Nicole and Erin Peace of VA, Karina Santos of Winston-Salem NC, and his nephew Aidan Steele of Clemmons NC, whom he worshipped the ground he walked on. He also leaves behind a wonderful ex-girlfriend, Brittany Walker.
He had an intense personality that could make you laugh, cry, mad, or to just want to fight him. But, for Steven he would just prefer the fight. His last fight was with himself and the Steven we know lost that fight. He took a path that far too many people have taken, a path that took his young life. So, if you know anyone who is suffering from depression or substance abuse, please try to help them. Parents, give them one more chance. Don’t wait and forgive them after it’s too late. End each phone call with “I Love You”, even if the rest of the conversation wasn’t pleasant. Any friends that may be fighting the same demons, please get help. Steven was as tough as they come, so if this can happen to him, it can and will happen to you too.
There will be a gathering at the family home for his friends on Aug 5th, 6-8 pm. One last gathering at the Fife house, but this time we, his parents will be able to attend and won’t be out of town. Friends, you know what we are talking about.
He will forever be missed. Roll Tide Buddy!
