Steven (Stevie) Koenig , 54, passed away peacefully on July 3, 2023. He was born and raised in Freehold New Jersey and graduated from Freehold Township High School. When his parents retired, he moved with them to Morehead City, North Carolina and was employed for a number of years at Lowes Foods. In 2010 he moved to Asheville with his sister Karen. Stevie's unique personality, love of dance, music, good food and participation in many houses of worship attracted a diverse group of loving friends everywhere he lived. Stevie's love of life and people was infectious and evident on the faces of people who participated in the Friday drum circle, various churches and synagogues, and local and regional music jams and festivals. Many local, state and non-governmental organizations provided support, services and a community of caring individuals who supported Stevie's independent and vibrant life. Some of his favorite activities supported through these organizations included volunteering at Brother Wolf Animal Rescue, Manna Foodbank, impersonating Elvis at the Open Hearts Annual Talent Show, working at Ingles and living independently. His last years were spent at the Black Mountain Neuro-Medical Treatment Center where the entire staff provided world-class, loving care.
He was predeceased by his parents, Lucille and Milton Koenig.
He is survived by his sisters Karen Koenig, Sandy Koenig, Rose Koenig (Tom Mirti), and Rhonda Combs (Danny Combs), 2 nieces and a nephew (Chelsea, Amaleah and Rico).
A celebration of life will be held Sunday, August 13 at 5 pm at the Weaverville Community Center at 60 Lakeshore Drive Weaverville, North Carolina. To honor his life, the family requests donations be sent to Black Mountain Center Foundation, 932 Old US highway 70 Black Mountain North Carolina 28711.
