Steve Riner Obituary

Mr. Steve Edward Riner, 65, of Swainsboro passed away Monday, April 1, 2024, at Memorial Health University Medical Hospital in Savannah.

Steve was born May 12, 1958, in Savannah to the late Lynn Riner and Bobbie Jean Kirby Riner. He was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Tyron Riner.

Steve loved big and lived large. If he liked you, he loved you. He worked in construction. He worked at Twin City Quality Buildings for 22 years. His greatest joys were his grandchildren and continuing his parents’ family traditions. He loved having his family and friends that he called “adopted” family together. He always looked forward to Wednesday as they were family nights with his kids, grandkids, and anyone one that showed up to join the fun. His favorite trips were to Biloxi, MS for a little gambling, to Arkansas for a weeklong deer hunt with Shawn, his nephews, and friends. He loved his fur baby, Buddy and if you saw him, Buddy was right beside him.

He was a lifelong member of Daniels Creek Hunting, where he and Mr. Larry Morrison cooked greens every year for opening day of deer season.

Steve is survived by his wife, Kathy M. Riner of Swainsboro; daughter, Megan Womack (Tyler) of Swainsboro; sons, Phil Riner (Chastayne Kitchens) of Statesboro, Jesse Riner (Diana) of Macon, Jeffrey Hutcheson (Erin Hall) of Statesboro, Jason Wilcher (Krissy Widner) of Midville;; sister, Sandra Edenfield of Swainsboro; brothers, Gerald Riner (Terry) of Savannah, Hugh “Cooter” Riner (Stephanie), Shawn Riner (Michelle), both of Swainsboro; special nephews, Justin Riner and Keith Riner; special aunts, Margaret Smith and Jeannette “Puff” Webb; 13 grandchildren, 2 great-grandchildren; fur baby, Buddy; several other nieces and nephews and many friends.

Memorial Service will be held at 5:00 P.M., Thursday, April 4, 2024, in the Chapel of Chapman Funeral Home with Reverend Wes Webb officiating.

The family will receive friends at 5:00 P.M. on Wednesday, April 3, 2024, at Riner Pond House
