Steven Craig Rogers of Statesville, N.C., passed away unexpectedly on Monday, May 4, 2020. He was 25 years old.

Steven was an extraordinary son, brother, and friend. His radiant smile, infectious laughter, and big heart will be remembered forever.

Steven was born December 29, 1994, to Craig Rogers and Terri Kurley. He was always a free spirit and was never afraid to be his authentic self. He enjoyed all aspects of music, whether he was playing drums in his band or teaching himself new instruments. He loved all genres and could appreciate all works and pieces of music. He especially enjoyed Phish, RHCP, and Bassnectar. He enjoyed playing video games, sports, reading literature, and watching documentaries of the unknown. He is forever a Jedi warrior and Master Sword Bearer. The only thing Steven put above music was his family.

He is survived by his mother, Terri Starnes (Coy); his father, Craig Rogers (Michelle); his sisters, Kristin Stiltner (Chris), Tori Ferguson, and Madison Rogers; and brothers, Charles Starnes, and Ryan and Derrick McCoy; his paternal grandfather, Bill Rogers (Angela); and maternal grandmother, Trish McNabb (Lee); paternal aunts, Crystal Scott (Ryan) and Lori Tyler (Chuck); maternal uncle, Derik Kurley; his nephews, Phenix Kiser and Andrew Scott; and nieces, Raelynn Owensby, Chesney Stiltner and Amelia McCoy; and many other loved ones.

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Terry Kurley, and paternal grandmother, Janie Sechrist.
