Sad note to relay a former Kanawha Valley regulator "Mullinville Man" left us yesterday. Thanks for the times he shot with you all he did truly enjoy it. I have followed the Regulators from here in Oregon since Steve first shot with you. Again thanks for your patience and may all have a Blessed Christmas! Dave Gilliam Brother (AKA Kansan)
Stephen D. Gilliam, 70 of Cross Lanes passed away at Thomas Memorial Hospital on Sunday, December 23, 2018.
Stephen was a former employee of DuPont, the Calwell Practice, and Bailey and Glasser, member of the Putnam County Gun Club, and the Kanawha Valley Regulators. He proudly served his country in the US Army. He loved boating and woodworking.
He is preceded in death by his father Donald Gilliam and a brother John Gilliam.
Stephen is survived by the love of his life and “rock” Joyce Wilson, mother Fern Gilliam of Beaverton, OR, two daughters Kim Richards (James) of Milton and Stacey Pinson (Delmar Parsons) of Cross Lanes, brother David Gilliam of Beaverton, OR. He is also survived by his grandchildren Jocelyn Taylor, and Cameron and Kassidee Pinson.
