Steven L. Whetten Sr.

September 30, 1956 — May 23, 2024

Syracuse

Steven L. Whetten Sr., affectionately known as Steve, passed away in his home in Syracuse on Thursday, May 23, 2024, surrounded by his loving family, at the age of 67. He was born on September 30, 1956, at Elkhart Memorial Hospital to his mother, Nancy Whetten Savala (Stevens) and father, Larry L. Whetten.


Steve led a remarkable life filled with entrepreneurial spirit and a deep love for his family. Throughout his career, he owned his own business, Whetten Pizza, and was a successful self-employed semi driver.  His dedication and hard work shone through both in his career and personal life.


Beyond professional achievements, Steve will be remembered for his caring, loving nature with a touch of stubbornness that added to his personality. He found joy in the simple pleasures of life - from sharing lectures with his family to embarking on memorable trips to the Wisconsin Dells and going to Nascar races.


His hobbies and interests were just as unique as Steve;old cars, racing, poker, coins, and frequent visits to casinos - particularly enjoying the penny slots. Traveling held a special place in his heart, especially during his time as a truck driver. He enjoyed exploring new places and taking photos that he would send to his children.


Steve's proudest accomplishments revolved around his family. He is survived by his children, Steven Lee (Lia) Whetten Jr. and Stephanie Viora Whetten; grandchildren,Boston Matthew Edwards, Emma Viora Edwards, Niv Lee Whetten, and Alaska Viora Ann Stewart; father, Larry L. Whetten; ex-wife, Tanya Tyler; brother, Albert Whetten;sister, Pam Walker; and nephew, Cory Whetten. He is further survived by many, many friends. He was preceded in passing by his mother, Nancy Savala and brother,Russel Whetten.
