Stephen Charles "Steve" Small, Sr. - Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Homes & Crematory

Stephen Charles “Steve” Small, Sr.

January 22, 1950 - October 11, 2022

Stephen Charles “Steve” Small, Sr., age 72, of New Castle, DE, passed away on Tuesday, October 11, 2022.

Born in Coatesville, PA on January 22, 1950, he was a son of the late Charles Robert Small and Joan (Wilson) Stanley. He served in the USMC. Steve worked in apartment maintenance for most of his life and retired from Clover department store.  In his later years, he enjoyed spending time with his granddaughter and watching tv. He was an avid motorcyclist, and was a lifetime member of ABATE.  He was very talented with repairs and renovations both in the home or in the garage.  He was creative and found unique ways to display his skills, such as creating a giant Minion in his front yard from an old propane tank. Steve also enjoyed model trains and had a large collection.  What he loved the most was spending time in the garage working on his motorcycles.

In addition to his parents, Steve was preceded in death by his son, Stephen C. Small II. He is survived by his son, Jason M. Small (Lea); brothers, Roy S. Small (Kathryn), and Ken Small; and his granddaughter, Oswin Small.

Services will be private and a memorial will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations may be made to Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Homes to offset funeral expenses.
