Steven Lee Netherland

A memorial Service will be held for Steven Lee Netherland, 58, of Reedsport, Ore., on Thursday, October 6, 2011, at 6:00 p.m., at the Reedsport Church of God. Steve was born September 28, 1953, in Medford, Ore., to Bud and Selda (Carlton) Netherland. He married Dana Buell, of Medford, in 1999, at a revival in Yuma, Ariz. He was then baptized at New Beginnings Church in Medford.

Steve was a master tile setter for 30 years and worked a short time recently with the great crew of the maintenance department of the City of Reedsport, and for the dear residence of the Timber Ridge Retirement Center of Reedsport as a maintenance technician.

He lost his fierce battle with cancer on September 29, 2011, at the Lower Umpqua Hospital, where he was treated by the compassionate staff.

His love of the Reedsport area brought him here in 2005, for the fishing and beauty. He had wonderful neighbors and made great friends. He will be missed.

He is survived by his wife, Dana; his parents; brother, Mike; daughter, Patricia; grandson, Marky; niece, Brandi; nephew, Todd; and three great-nieces and great-nephews. Steve was preceded in death by his first wife, Toni.

Steve's remains will be scattered over his family hunting grounds, with the remainder inurned in the Hillcrest Columbarium in Medford, Ore. The family requests live plants instead of cut flowers. Dunes Memorial Chapel is in charge of arrangements.
