Steven Christopher Bohannon was born in Cincinnati, Ohio on August 09, 1969, to the parents of Melvin Johnson and Deborah Bohannon. He graduated from Woodward High school in 1989. Steven joined his brother and sister in law in Augsburg, Germany for one year to get some international exposure. While spending time with his family, Steven joined a band. During this time his mother called everyday to ask Lamont, “:Where is Stevie?” And he would say mama I don’t know, he’ll be back tomorrow. Covering up for his younger brother. Not really knowing where the band was!! Steven moved to Charlotte, North Carolina to join the NASCAR Technical Institute. There he was trained to build and rebuild NASCAR vehicles. Steven started a business for detailing cars and he enjoyed serving the community in Mooresville, North Carolina. Steven worked at the nursing home part time, he was a personal aid, and when he returned home to Cincinnati he started working as a mechanic at Mechanical Finishing Tool Company in Carthage.
Steven was raised up on Rion Lane with a host of family and friends. His nick name growing up was “Tank”. They built unforgettable memories including getting caught stealing or trying to put their mother’s car back after being out without permission, for the night. Steven was raised up in Bethlehem Temple Apostolic Church on 12th and Elm Street and continued to attend after the move to Hamilton Avenue. Steven received the Holy Ghost under the leadership of our founding Bishop James Smith in 1992. Later, as time progressed, Steven assisted his brother with custodial needs and rebuilding the structure of the church as they prepared to open the doors at True Holiness Apostolic Pentecostal Church in Detroit, Michigan.
Steven was a sweet soul and many loved him. He was a cheerful giver and compassionate nurturer with a warm sense of humor. People were drawn to him, and he did not mind welcoming them into his heart and home. This was evident in every aspect of his life; both in his spiritual, personal and professional life. It goes without saying his family, community and neighbors loved him very much.
Steven loved spending holidays with family and friends — especially during Christmas and Family Reunions. He enjoyed traveling and spent a lot of time on the road and going to professional sporting events with his brother. He was a jewel to the Bohannon family and he will be truly missed. He was preceded in death by: father, Melvin Johnson; eldest sister, Nitassia Bohannon.
Steven leaves to cherish: his mother, Deborah Bohannon; his brother, Lamont Bohannon, Sr.; sister -in-law, Eleanor Bohannon; second eldest niece, Erin Bohannon; nephew, Lamont Bohannon, Jr.; niece-inlaw, Rachel Bohannon; and a host of extended family, church family, and friends.
