Bill Steverson

May 27, 1945 — February 6, 2023

Smithville, MS

William Ervin “Bill” Steverson, 77, passed away on Monday, February 6, 2023, following a short illness.  He was born on May 27, 1945, in Columbus to Alton Jackson and Rebecca Lois Barrow Steverson.  Growing up in Columbus, he graduated in 1963 from Lee High School and furthered his education at Mississippi State University and East Mississippi Junior College where he played football for Coach Bull Sullivan.  He was a place kicker with impeccable stats, only missing one field goal in two years.  Bill married the former Donna Carolyn Thompson on November 27, 1964 and worked for ITT in Georgia for a number of years.  Later, he became a general contractor and build countless homes across north Mississippi, and he constructed the church building at Christian Chapel Church of Christ where he also served as an elder for several years.  He built the famed white house on Boulevard Drive in Amory, and he currently was a member of the Amory Church of Christ.  He would trade on just about anything, but mostly guns, and he loved to travel the country attending gun shows.  He was a conversationalist and liked nothing more than to visit and talk with his friends, who will serve as his honorary pallbearers.


Funeral services honoring Bill’s life will be at 2 p.m. on Thursday, February 9, 2023, at Cleveland-Moffett Funeral Home with ministers Jerry Welborn, Abel Nicholas leading singing, Jonathan Godsey and Philip Hathcock will deliver eulogies, Leslie Grant will bring the message of comfort, and will conclude with Jay Thomas speaking.  Burial will be in Young Memorial Gardens in Smitvhille.
