Stephen Boyd Poe, a lifetime area resident, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, July 20, 2019. He was 55 years old and the son of Boyd and Shirley (Hite) Poe.
Steve, as many knew him, was a 1982 graduate of Warsaw Community High School who went on to earn an associate degree from Ball State University. He was employed by Pepsi at one time and had been a machine operator for Zimmer Biomet.
He enjoyed the outdoors, liked to fish and lived to mushroom hunt. He also enjoyed playing pool and was a member of Sons of American Legion Post 49. He was a fan of all kinds of music and, though he liked most classic rock, he enjoyed songs from many genres.
On Saturday, June 4, 2011, Steve was married to Regina Gayheart at Lighthouse Pentecostal Church in Warsaw. Sadly, she preceded him in passing on September 14, 2014. Both sets of grandparents and a sister, Sheila Poe, also preceded him.
Stephen was blessed to discover love again however and is survived by his fiancée, Leila Andrew. Also surviving are his parents, Boyd and Shirley Poe of Claypool; brother, Bill Poe (spouse, Michael VanOsdol) of Leesburg; three stepchildren: Arthur Martin of Warsaw, Zachary Blackburn of Nappanee and Kayla Shepherd-Palmer; three step grandchildren; several aunts, several uncles and a large extended family.
A Life Celebration will be held at Titus Funeral Home, 2000 East Sheridan Street, Warsaw. Visitation will be on Thursday from 10 a.m. – 12 o’clock. Beginning at 12, Pastor William Whitaker of Warsaw Family Worship Center will officiate Stephen’s funeral service.
