STEPHEN DEFUR Obituary

Stephen Michael Defur, passed away at his residence in Sale Creek, Tennessee December 30, 2023.  He was born in Sale Creek, TN June 14, 1953, to William Alexander Defur and Ethel Stapleton Defur. He was married to Kathy L. Creasman on July 6, 1974 at Cove Church of God. He spent his entire life in Sale Creek, TN. He was of the Church of God faith and attended Graysville Church of God in Graysville, TN.  

As a child, Mike was called Hammer by his siblings and that name stuck with him his entire life. Mike loved woodworking and was very talented at building homes and making various crafts including our very own solid oak bed and a barn door to our bathroom. His greatest love was riding his bicycle.

Stephen was preceded in death by his parents William Alexander and Ethel  “Jennybell” Stapleton Defur and his brother, Thomas Lamar Defur.  

He is survived by his wife, Kathy L. Creasman Defur, his son, Michael Chad Defur (wife Angel), brothers: James Larry Defur and Billy Foster Defur, sisters: Nancy A Bailey, Joyce Hardy, Wanda (Wayne) Bowman, Cathy L. Defur, and JoAnn (Allen) Ford. He is also survived by several nieces and nephews, a special and close cousin/friend: Virginia Jo Scott, otherwise called, Toe Jo or Nurse Good Body. She was an awesome help to the family during Mike’s long, long illness. She was truly loved and appreciated.

Stephen worked in commercial construction and built houses. When Stephen worked in construction he earned many different names that his co-workers gave him. The names he earned were Vern, Tarzan, and Hammer. If you called for a job and needed him you’d usually have to go thru several names to get him to the phone.

Visitation will be at Graysville Church of God on January 6, 2024 from 10:00 am-2:00 pm. The funeral is at 2:00 pm at Graysville Church of God. Interment will follow at Buttram Cemetery.
