Steve was born March 20, 1957, in Charleston and graduated from Lincoln Junior High School and Stonewall Jackson High School, where he played football, ran track and was a member of the wrestling team.

Steve was a student of all things "earth and space." He loved astronomy, world maps and globes, Star Trek and Star Wars. He also loved the outdoors, where he spent countless hours riding his mountain bike with good friends, shooting his black-powdered rifle and traveling with his wife Shelly, the love of his life. Steve was a devoted attendee of both the Valley Christian Assembly of Charleston and the Ashton Baptist Church of Ashton, WV. He also loved his Bible Study Group, where he gained peace and understanding of the Word of God. Steve is survived by his loving wife Michele (Shelly); son, Jason Becher of Charleston; daughter, Elizabeth Butcher of Columbus, OH; son, Brandon Butcher of Barboursville, WV; and two grandchildren. He is also survived by sisters, Sarah (Vic) Sands of Chelyan, WV, Sue (Pat) Gallagher of Charleston and Cyndi (Chuck) Bowman of St. Albans, WV; in laws, Jimmy and Mary Edmonds of Apple Grove; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
