Stephen "Gene" Eugene Sheorn, Sr.

Stephen Eugene Sheorn, Sr., 91, resident of 2013 White Oak Rd. passed away Thursday Oct. 5, 2017 at Kershaw County Health Center in Camden, SC.

Gene was born in Camden, SC Jan. 27, 1926, a son of the late James Duncan Sheorn and Selma McCaskill Sheorn.

Gene was a United States Army veteran proudly serving his country during WWII. He was a retired Supervisor with DuPont Industries having worked in the Orlon, Dacron and Nylon plants for over 30 plus years. He also enjoyed fishing, hunting and tinkering with things.

He was a handy man's handy man as he had a gift that he could fix and repair anything. Gene enjoyed going to his Jack Leg Club meetings eating and enjoying fellowship with his buddies. He especially enjoyed spending time with his family and making memories such as their annual Carolina Cup Horse Races every spring and going to the lake swimming, waterskiing and tubing.

Gene was a member of Liberty Hill Presbyterian Church where he was very active. He was fondly known as one of the three horsemen within in the church as they did numerous repairs within the church. Gene and his wife Sarah joined Liberty Hill Presbyterian Church in 1987. Shortly after joining, Gene served as an Elder for several years. His spirit of service continued as he helped repair and replace the church steeple, built Miss Bettie Richards Fellowship Hall, built the Lakeside pavilion, and worked tirelessly on the expansive irrigation system at Lakeside. He even built the first podium used at Lakeside services way back when they met in the parking lot of Deal's Marina. Gene continued to serve the church as part of the newsletter workday crew.

He was such a faithful attendee at worship services that if he missed a Sunday they begin to worry! Gene was a quiet pillar of Liberty Hill Presbyterian and we were grateful for him. In 2014 he received the "Legacy Award" given by the South Carolina Presbytery to a member of each Presbyterian Church.

Survivors include a son, Stephen Eugene Sheorn, Jr. (Connie) of Lugoff, SC; two daughters, Linda Bullock (Rick) of Cream Ridge, NJ and Carol Jackson (Steve) of Abbeville, SC; nine grandchildren, Laurie Drumm (Marc), Alison Poore (Scott), Ryan Bullock (Mandie), Stephen E. Sheorn, III (Jill), Angie Garner (Greg), Zac Sheorn, Brad Jackson (Christi), Brooks Jackson (Jennifer) and Kelly Jackson; and 15 great-grandchildren.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Sarah McCrary Sheorn, a brother Jimmy Sheorn and a great-granddaughter Natalianne Jackson.

Graveside services will be conducted Tuesday Oct. 10, 2017 at 2:00 PM in Quaker Cemetery in Camden, SC with Military Honors conducted by Revs. Dot Killian and Gene Rawlings. The family is at the home 2013 White Oak Rd. Camden, SC.

Dear Carol, Extending deepest sympathy & lifting your family in prayer. May God comfort all of you with His peace as each of you cherish fond memories of your daddy. Sending love from Debbie & Gerald Davenport!

While words fail to capture the pain of losing a loved one, we look forward to the time when words will fail to capture the joy of having our heavenly Father Jehovah return your dear one to you. Isaiah 25:8 "He will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces."

Heather Oct 10 2017 12:00 AM

I am sorry to hear of your loss. May you find comfort in the promises at Revelation 21:4 that reads; "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more. Neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things has passed away." The Bible gives us hope that one day our dead loved ones will be brought back to life.

My dear sweet friend, Carol, when we were college suite mates I remember hearing you talk about your parents and especially the fun family times at the lake. How very fortunate you were to have had your precious father in your life for so many years. Sending my thoughts, prayers and love to you, Steve, and your family. Julie

Carol and family, we are saddened to learn about your Dad. From our conversations, it was clear the care that you gave your Dad was that of a loving Daughter, making sure that he had home cooked meals and spending days off with him. We know that this will leave a void in your life. It is our prayer that God will be especially close to you and carry you when you need Him. With Our Love, Sandra and Langdon
