Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Steve Lynn Boles, age 63, of Charlotte NC, passed away on Monday May 28, 2018 at CaroMont Regional Medical Center in Gastonia. Steve was born on March 1, 1955 in Stanly County, NC to the late Haywood Boles and Victoria Mabry Boles.
He graduated from Pfeiffer University with a Bachelor’s Degree in History. At the time of his death he was employed as a sales consultant for Carmax. Through the years he also worked as a bartender at Panthers stadium and was a theatre, film, and TV actor for over forty years. While these jobs sustained he and his family, his full time gig was building others up and making them laugh. He enjoyed watching sports, cooking, and he loved the NY Yankees.
Steve is survived by his wife of 35 years, Phyllis VanCleave of Charlotte; and their daughter Sara. He most enjoyed any time he could spend with his wife and children. His quick wit and never ending desire to make others laugh was a gift to all and will be sorely missed. He embraced and was able to reach all generations with his intelligence and gregarious personality.
A funeral Mass will be held at 11:00 AM on Thursday June 7, 2018 at St Mark Catholic Church (14740 Stumptown Rd, Huntersville, NC). The family will receive friends at the church immediately following the service. The ashes will be placed in the columbarium at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church in Charlotte, NC at 4:00 PM.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the American Heart Association or St Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church. Steve left a piece of his heart with all who had the good fortune to know him.
