NORTH BENNINGTON -- Stephen “Steph” Davidson, 37, a resident of Water Street in North Bennington, died on Monday, Sept. 1, 2003 in Pennsylvania, as a result of injuries that he sustained in an automobile accident while traveling with his wife, while returning from an artisan show in Pennsylvania.

He was born in Boston on Sept. 24, 1965 and was the son of Stanley and Jane (Baker) Davidson. From the age of 3, he would attend art fairs every weekend with his parents, who were jewelers. By the time he was in high school, he was designing and selling his own line of jewelry.For formal education, he graduated from Swain School of Design in New Bedford, Mass., receiving a BFA in sculpture. He then went on to continue his training in Pietrasanta, Italy. Here, he learned the traditional Italian carving techniques.

He then returned to the United States and settled in North Bennington. In the Green Mountains, he studied marble sculpturing for five years under Fred Brownstein, a master sculptor. Steph has shown his marble sculptures in numerous galleries and art shows throughout the United States. In 1999, Steph completed a memorial for “Holy Sepulcher” in Albany, New York. A recent work, “Gomorrah,” proudly stands eight feet tall in downtown North Bennington.

He is survived by his parents of West Yarmouth, Mass., a brother Howard of Hudson, Mass. and a sister, Cindy Boland of Hudson; three nephews, Philip and Benjamin Davidson, Brian Boland and one niece, Alicia Boland.

Graveside funeral services will be held on Sunday afternoon, September 7, at 2 p.m. at the Bennington Hebrew Cemetery at Park Lawn Cemetery, with Rabbi Howard Cohen, of Beth El Congregation, officiating.
