Stephen Alderman • August 18, 2021



Stephen (Steve) Alan Alderman left us unexpectedly on August 18, 2021, at the age of 72. He was a graduate of Escambia High School and a life-long resident of Pensacola.

Steve is preceded in death by his parents, D. Q. and Rhoda, his brother, Dudley, and his sister, Fannie Beth. He leaves behind to cherish his memory, his son, Chase, his granddaughter, Delaynah, and his sisters, Susan and Eloise, and their families.

Steve spent most of his career in the heating and air conditioning business as a sheet metal mechanic, commercial estimator, and vice-president. He took great pride in his work and was still employed and sharing his knowledge with others at the time of his passing.

Steve enjoyed life’s simple pleasures — reading, music, a home-cooked meal, a quiet walk in the woods. He visited the Smoky Mountains often and dreamed of making the mountains his home. He was also a NASCAR racing fan and attended numerous races. When Dale Earnhardt, Sr.’s #3 was racing, you could be sure Steve was watching.

Southern rock music and peaceful mountain scenery will always remind us of you, Stephen. Green grass and high tides.

A memorial visitation will be held on Saturday, September 4, 2021, from 2-4 PM, at Pensacola Memorial Gardens.

    I love you Dad, forever and always.

  2. I had the pleasure of first meeting Steve in the early 1970s and had the pleasure of knowing and working with him during the decades that followed. He was a gregarious and knowledgeable gentleman who was always ready to assist those whom needed his assistance and advice. My sincerest condolences to his family and friends. West

    You will be missed greatly, Uncle Stephen.

  4. Liz Raby says:

    I worked with Steve for many years. He was always easy to work with and was very professional. Since I am from the Smoky Mountains area, we formed a bond of our love of those Tennessee Hills!
    Chase, your dad loved you unconditionally!
    Rest in Peace my friend!

  5. Shannon Brown says:

    Steve was always very friendly and open minded with any conversation. He gave you his undivided attention and was very wise and a great person to know. You will be missed!
