Stephen Kenneth Belcher, 1965-2021
Stephen Belcher passed away in his home in Jeffersonville. Stephen grew up in Louisville, KY and Henryville, IN where he was known as Steve Webb. He enjoyed playing basketball on the courts at Henryville High school and the forestry. He was very proud to be a member of the drill team and could still spin a rifle. He moved to Jeffersonville in 1983 with his mom and shortly after he joined the US Marine Corps. He returned home to Louisville after serving in Florida. Stephen worked as a Brinks courier, bus driver for Jefferson County schools as well as several other jobs to which he gave his whole being. Stephen loved Snoopy, NASCAR, Metallica, Def Leppard and basketball.

He is survived by his wife, Holly Sibray; his mother-in-law, Donna Mackison; sisters-in-law, Beth Tweedy and Amy Sibray. Stephen enjoyed spending time with friends Geri Helbig; Erica, Elise “Squishy”, and Benjamin Keller who brought laughter to him.

He will be missed by many friends and family.
“My universe will never be the same. I’m glad you came.”
Stephen enjoyed many adventures in his 55 years of this lifetime: going on a cruise with Holly and seeing the Dalai Lama speak, are highlights. Stephen enjoyed many comedians and loved to laugh, particularly on game night or “Movies and Mayhem” with friends.
Stephen practiced Buddhism and hopes to become Bodhisattva in a future life. He was very compassionate, especially towards animals. Please remember Stephen in gifts to animal welfare organizations, and by loving one another every day. Namaste.
A memorial service will take place in the spring at the Henryville Forestry basketball courts where Stephen was happiest. Stephen chose cremation.
