Steven Cochran

Steven John Cochran ended his journey on September 16, 2022, in the comfort of his home and loved ones both human and animal. He was born in Allegan, Michigan on July 4, 1968, to Doris Ann Smith and James Lee Cochran. His life was not an easy one, but he made the best of it with his wicked sense of humor. Steve’s favorite pastime was hunting. To him, opening day was better than Christmas. Steve had the biggest heart. To him, no one was a stranger just a friend he had not met yet. He was always willing to befriend stray animals and people. He had many adventures in Allegan with his sister from another mister, Sue Revor and his brother from another mother, Todd Beardsley and his family, Jodie, Logan and Austin. On October 10, 2015, he married Sherrie Armstrong and joined a ready-made family with two sons, Ian and Kyle Wilson in Charlotte. He became a father to them and loved them like his own children. A few years later, he was blessed with a wonderful daughter-in-law, Alanna Peterson and two beautiful grandchildren. Layela and Lorelei. Both girls had “Papa Steve” wrapped around their fingers and they were the light of his life.
Steven was preceded in death by his mother and father, his best dogs, Savage, Buzz and Coda. Surviving is his wife, Sherrie; sons, Ian and Kyle (Alanna) and granddaughters, Layela and Lorelei; his second mother, Hope Cochran; sister, Bonnie Kronemyer (Doug); brother, Mike Cochran (Rhonda) and many nieces, nephews and cousins. He is also survived by his very special friends, Susan Revor, Todd Beardsley (Jodie, Logan and Austin), Bob Converse (Michaelle), Rex and Deb Todd, and his family at Rose Pest Solutions.
A Celebration of Life and a luncheon will be held on October 1, 2022, at 1:00 p.m. at the Fraternal Order of Eagles Aerie and Auxiliary #3552 at 116 Lansing Street, Charlotte, MI. In lieu of flowers, please donate to your local animal shelter in Steve’s name.
