Charles Stephen Lunsford

August 21, 1942 — September 25, 2021

Charles ‘Stephen’ Lunsford
Stephen Lunsford passed on Saturday, September 25th due to complications from lung cancer and is now with the Lord. He was born on August 21, 1942 in North Carolina to Charles and Julia (Lollis) Lunsford. Stephen is survived by his wife of 26 years (Lynne LeVasseur), and a half-brother (Ron)

Stephen served in the military as a Navy Corpsman stationed with the Marines during the Vietnam War. He then continued his nursing degree to specialize in the field as a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA). He traveled the country practicing anesthesia and finally settled in Farmville, Virginia where he retired from Centra Southside Hospital after many years of providing anesthesia to surgical and maternity patients.

Stephen enjoyed ‘picking’ his guitar, golfing, playing chess, and completing small carpentry and home-renovation projects. He had a great love for dogs, including his surviving yorkies, Ayden and Annabelle who provided him much comfort during his illness. Stephen will be remembered by many as a dedicated and adept professional, a playfully hard-headed man who enjoyed testing one’s last nerve, his very generous and selfless heart, and his gentlemanly ways.
