Steven Walker Ragsdale, 59, of Middletown, PA passed away peacefully December 7, 2020 after a brief illness.

Steve was born August 15, 1961 in Richmond, VA to Thomas Walker and Ruth Crawford Ragsdale.

Throughout the years, Steve moved with his family and lived in Indiana, Georgia, New Jersey, and Maryland before making his home in Pennsylvania.

He graduated from the University of Baltimore with a degree in computer programming and worked for the Warrell Corporation in Camp Hill, PA.

Steve’s passions included hiking in the National Forests, visiting Pinchot Park with his friends, photography, football (especially the Miami Dolphins), and vacationing at Ocean City, Maryland.

Steve was preceded in death by his father, Walker Ragsdale. He is survived by his mother, Ruth Ragsdale, Monroe, VA; his sister, Susan Lloyd, Richmond, VA; aunts, uncle, numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, and his beloved furbaby Musk. The family would like to thank his wonderful friends, especially Erica, Pam, Theresa, and Jess, for their love and support.

To Stephen my long time friend. We met in Reisterstown many years ago and had remained in contact through out the years. I spoke with you in the middle of November after you said you had surgery and where in rehabilitation. Ironically I sent you a message on Dec. 7th to see how things where going since you said you were headed to Virginia when we spoke last. Having not heard from you I went searching and with a sad heart came across this memorial. You had a kind spirit and where always fun to be around. I will miss your 2pm "buzzy" text and follow up chats. I have to laugh as I was always afraid to ask if you were being funny or simply didn't know how to spell busy;) I wanted to post some pictures of your fun times, me and Jimmy helping you with your many moves and our last in person visit 2 years ago at the concert in Bristow, VA. I will carry your friendship for life. My sincere condolences to Steven's mother and family.

To a Dear Sweet Cousin: Steve, I still can’t comprehend that I talked with you on Saturday and you were gone Monday. God must have a plan for you-maybe to get Mom and Aunt Lois into a competitive game of dominoes with you up in Heaven, but it just doesn’t seem real. We will miss you at Thanksgiving, at our table at Christmas, and at the Farm during the year, hearing your stories of hiking with your friend, or going to the Park to meet friends, listening to your excitement about going to the beach, or looking at the beautiful pictures you took. You were such a sweet and gentle soul and I never heard you say anything bad about anyone. I will forever remember our daily talks over the past month and a half while you were in rehab and what courage it took for you to try to overcome every obstacle placed in your way. Not once did you complain, ok, well, about the room being too hot, but I can sympathize with that, but you never complained about anything else. I had revised Mom’s exercise program for you and was going to make sure you stuck to it by telling you that she did them all at the age of 86. I knew the Crawford spirit would make you want to surpass what Mom accomplished and together with all your cousins’ help, we were going to get you back on your feet. Meeting your friends after you left us, has brought me peace knowing how you were enjoying life with a wonderful bunch of caring and loving people. The smiles and laughs will forever be in my mind when I think of you. Take care, Cousin.

Steve and I met in the 3 years ago at Gifford Pinchot Park. There are 6 of us that meet during the summer months on weekends to enjoy the sunshine, have lunch and catch up on our latest news. We also get together after the park is closed for the summer to hike, take a railroad trip, drive through the state game lands or meet for brunch. We are the ‘Pinchot pals’ and will will miss his kindness, laughter and love of life. We love you Steve.
