Steven Chandler Saylor
February 14, 1987-May 10, 2003

Chandler Saylor was born on February 14, 1987 to Steven B. and Pamela M. Saylor. His sister Stephanie, was three years old when he was born. He was a member of Swansea First Baptist Church and the Faith Baptist Church youth group. His hobbies included playing golf, playing the guitar, and hunting. Chandler played Dixie Youth baseball, B-Team football and he was on the Junior Varsity wrestling team. He was a two-year golf letterman at Swansea High School.

Everyone that knew Chandler found that this red haired, freckle faced young man had a sense of humor that would cheer even the most downhearted. Many memories remain of Chandler, but the ones that stand out the most are his passion for golf and his love for the Lord Jesus Christ. He professed his love for both very openly. While most consider the golf course a place to make business deals, Chandler found that it was a place open with opportunity to share his faith with others.

On May 10, 2003, near the end of his sophomore year at Swansea High School, Chandler was fatally injured in an ATV accident.

We miss him dearly, but his memory will remain in our hearts forever.


We would like to extend our sincere appreciation for the continued support sent our way following Chandler’s accident. The Lord has surely blessed us in bringing each of you into our lives.

We have been forever changed by this tragedy. Our physical, emotional, and spiritual beings are different than before Chandler’s accident. When you see us, you may notice a deep sadness in our eyes, or a tear on our cheek. Please know that we understand your difficulty to find the “right words” at a time like this. If you feel led to provide a hand to hold, or an embrace, it is okay. Perhaps you want to share a memory with us, as they, unlike our physical being, will last forever. Feel free to share with us, as we long to hear about this special person, our son and brother. Most of all, we ask that you continue to pray for our family as we struggle to meet the challenges that present themselves with each new day.

Chandler is forever in our hearts. We miss hearing him play his guitar and whistling, watching him practice hitting golf balls (in the yard and on the range), playing pool in the game room, dancing, and most of all, we miss his sense of humor. We miss the things that were once taken for granted, like a hug, a smile, or a joke.

We are very proud of all that Chandler accomplished in the short time that God loaned him to us. While his years were short, his labors were long. People of all ages have told us about Chandler sharing his faith in Christ with them. Others have spoken of his dedication to family and friends. As most parents, we saw these qualities in Chandler, but find comfort in realizing that others noticed them as well.

Having faith in God’s promise, we are,

Steve and Pam Saylor
Stephanie and Chris Knight
