Steven J. Witherow, age 49, of North Beach, MD passed away at Georgetown University Hospital on August 12, 2014. Steve's love of family and friends was first and foremost throughout his lifetime. He was loyal to a fault, always caring for those who respected him, just as he did them. Steve's interest over the years included fishing, crabbing, hunting and being on the river whenever possible.

Wherever Steve lived, as soon as you entered his home, you met Archie. Archie was a six foot black bear. It stood on part of a tree, and on various seasons his family would place things on the bear. They soon discovered, "That was not a good idea".

One time, when helping him move into a house he had just bought, some of the women placed a doe and buck (his hunting trophies) on the wall. We had them going in different directions. It wasn't long before they heard Steve say in his gruff voice, "That's not the way you hang them on the wall". We started laughing, and didn't realize how serious he was about his trophies. They were of great value to him. As usual, we heard the words he always said when he was upset, "I don't play that game"! Steve never married, and it was of great sorrow to those who love him. He loved children dearly and would have made a fantastic father.

Rest in peace, our first born. Your family will always remember and love you and never forget the great love you gave to us in return.

Steve is survived by his mother, Judith K. Witherow of Morningside, MD; father Wayne Witherow (Pat) of Glen Richey, PA; brothers Stacey (Andrea) of Chesapeake Beach, MD and Mark (Dawn) of Clinton, MD; step-mother Sue Lenaerts of Morningside, MD; two nieces Carrie Clagg (Kyle) and Connie; two nephews Alan and Mark, Jr; a great-neice Chloe and a great-nephew Reece.
