Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Steven Scott Reese was born July 4, 1961 in LaGrange, Georgia one of five sons to the late Ellen Hasty Reese and Ray Reese. Steve, as most knew him, grew up with a love of music. He began playing guitar at an early age and played up until he suffered a stroke in 2013. He was the former director of the homeless program with Bethany Christian Fellowship Church until his health declined. He was a devoted member of Bethany Christian Fellowship Church for 8 years and enjoyed the love and support of his church family. Steve was a simple guy and enjoyed the simple things of life, which can be a testament for us all to love and enjoy the little things in life.
Steven Scott Reese, 57, of Phenix City, Alabama and formerly of LaGrange, Georgia passed away on Wednesday, March 20, 2019 at Piedmont Columbus Regional Midtown Hospital in Columbus, Georgia. He is preceded in death by his parents and two brothers, Randy and David Reese.

Steve was the first person I met at Valley Rescue Mission when I arrived there in 2010. He helped me in my recovery and I am forever grateful for him. He was a kind man who loved the Lord and the men he served in the ministry. He will be missed.

John Remington says
I met Steve in 2010 at the valley rescue mission where he worked. After my graduation he and I worked and lived together for several years until he left to get married. He had a lot of great wisdom and most importantly he taught me how to retain music glorifying to God and to recognize the potential trap of the enemy through it as well. I’ll miss him for a while but I’m comforted that we can hang out again soon (when I get there).
