Steve A. Chapman, 68, of Bayles Lake, formerly of Champaign, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday (Dec. 16, 2023) at Gibson Area Hospital, Gibson City.

He was born Oct. 3, 1955, in Lexington, Miss., a son of Robert and Pauline (Headley) Chapman. He married Sandy Stites on June 7, 1980, in Gifford. She survives.

He worked as a route salesman for Frito Lay and Little Debbie’s Snacks until his retirement. He was a fan of Illini basketball and football as well as the Cubs and Yankees baseball.

He greatly valued spending time with family; friends; his beloved dog, Sadie; and living his retirement at the lake. He enjoyed traveling, pickleball and wintering in Florida.
