Stephen E. Slothower

August 18, 1952 ~ June 6, 2022 (age 69)


Stephen E. Slothower, age 69, of Warrington Township, Wellsville, passed away peacefully at home in the presence of his loving children Monday, June 6, 2022. Steve was gracious over the last several weeks with his diagnosis, he was very heroic and admirable in his final days.

Born August 18, 1952, in York, PA he was a son of Harold Slothower, of Wellsville, and the late Geraldine (Sweet) Slothower.  He was a 1970 graduate of Northern High School, and York County Vo-Tech, and started his professional career as an electrician after High School.  Steve then transitioned into construction, as the owner of Slothower Builders building custom homes.   He also began working for Weaver’s of Wellsville 54 years ago where he was head of building and maintenance operations. Weaver’s became a second home to him. Steve was a workaholic, a self-teacher, there was nothing he could not figure out by reading and first hand teaching to himself and others.  He was often referred to as human computer with all the knowledge he possessed. In his earlier years he served as a volunteer fire fighter with Wellsville Fire Company and was a member of the York County Builders Association. One of Steve’s passions that he shared with his son was Sprint Car Racing. When he could not attend in person you could find him at home catching the races on tv. 

Steve is survived by a daughter, Melissa Potteiger, and her husband Ron Potteiger, Jr., of Mechanicsburg; a son, Ryan Slothower, and his wife Natalie, of Wellsville; two granddaughters, Hope Stansfield, and Sierra Slothower; a great grandson, Levi Stansfield; and three brothers, Rick Slothower, of Carlisle, Jeffery Slothower, of Dillsburg, and Kenneth Slothower, of Dover.
