Fort Worth, Texas - Stephen Cason “Steve” Vaughan, 76, went home to be with the Lord on January 3, 2024, unexpectedly after a brief illness. He was born on July 16, 1947, in Richmond, Virginia, to the late George Dennis and Doris Roper Vaughan, the youngest of three sons. While spending his childhood in Virginia, he later went on to receive a business degree from the University of Mississippi in Oxford, MS.
Steve was a loving brother, father, and grandfather and friend. He had a great sense of humor and was well known for his collection of life experiences and entertaining stories. He was always quick with a joke and loved sharing that laughter with those around him. Steve enjoyed traveling with friends and family and was a constant entrepreneur, always seeking new ventures.
An avid woodworker, he took pride in building furniture, keepsake boxes and toys for those around him, especially his grandchildren. One of the things that he enjoyed the most was attending his grandchildren’s sporting events and performances…and cheering on the TCU Horned Frogs!
Having grown up on Chesapeake Bay, Steve had a passion for boating and spending time on the water. He enjoyed many weekends at the family lake house here in East Texas. He cherished these moments of relaxation and connection with nature.
Steve was well respected and well known for his work ethic that launched several successful business ventures. In 1982, he co-founded Cargo Furniture Company, followed by the establishment of Payroll Solution in 1991 and Texas Tax Solutions in 2009. Never one to sit still too long, even up to his last days he was working on his latest project.
Steve will be deeply missed by his surviving family, including his brother, Dennis Vaughan and wife Edna of Columbia, South Carolina; brother, W.A. Roper Vaughan and wife Susan of Weatherford, Texas; son, Cason Vaughan of Austin, Texas; son, Kellen Vaughan and wife Ellen of Keller, Texas; Five Grandchildren, Sophia, Hudson, Harrison, Preston, Reid; and many other family members and friends.
A Celebration of His Life will be held in the coming months to honor Steve’s memory.
In lieu of flowers, the family kindly suggests that donations be made to the Tarrant County Veterans Council https://www.tcovco.org/ in Steve’s honor.
