Stephen (Steve) Pachman Obituary

Loving husband and father, Stephen "Steve" Pachman, passed away in his home surrounded by loved ones on July 15 after a yearlong battle with cancer.

Steve was born on January 23, 1948 to Elaine and Charles Kingsbury in San Diego, California. He is survived by his wife of 48 years Beth, his son Kevin and wife Nikiya, his daughter Nicole and husband Todd, four grandchildren Megan, Ryan, Maya and Poppy, his mother Elaine, his brothers Tom, John, and Mike, their wives Ann, Elaine, and Linda, and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins. Preceding him in death are his fathers, Charles Kingsbury and Robert Pachman.

Following high school, he joined the United States Air Force and served more than 40 years as active duty military and civil service. During those years, he earned a Master of Arts degree in Human Resource Development from Webster University. Being a man of many talents, he was an active member in the Federal Managers Association, and was a lifelong member of AFSA, NCOA, the American Legion, the Air Force Security Forces Association, and the Masons.

He was known for his sense of humor, love of Star Trek, and peanut M&M's. If you ever had a history question, he was your go-to guy. Most Saturdays, you could find him at the casino, while Sundays he would be at home watching NASCAR. He will be remembered for his gentle heart and kind ways toward both family and friends.

A memorial service will be held on Friday, July 24th at 2:00 pm, at Praise Chapel Christian Church, 398 Aylor Ave in Yuba City, California, officiated by Pastor Chris Madsen, followed by a small reception. A private inurnment will be in Sacramento Valley National Cemetery in Dixon, California at a later date.
