KING FERRY — Stephen L. Whitehead, 70, of King Ferry, passed away unexpectedly on Jan. 10, 2020, at his home.

Steve was born Sept. 23, 1949 in Newton, Mass., a son of Donald and Henny (Skillings) Whitehead. Steve was a member of the Scipio Masonic Lodge and had served with the Army from 1968 to 1969. He enjoyed his involvement in Cayuga County politics, and in helping other people in need. Steve was a fabulous cook and loved having annual pig roasts at his home.

Steve was a truly special person and will be missed by all who knew him.

Surviving are his wife of 25 years, Chris Wilbur; siblings, Paul, Donna, and Janice; several nieces and nephews, and a large group of special friends.
