Hill "Dickey" Wynn Steed , III

January 10, 1943 — September 7, 2023

Statham, GA

Hill Wynn "Dickey" Steed III of Athens, Georgia passed away at 80 years old on September 7th, 2023.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Hill Wynn Steed Jr. and Capitola Holliday Steed; his siblings, Michael E "Mickey" Steed and Jacqueline S "Jackie" Adams; and his granddaughter Joely Castang.

He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Gayle Cox Steed; his daughters Kimberly (Jean-Baptiste) Castang and Wendy Steed; and his granddaughters Katiana and Maris Castang.

Dickey was a proud graduate of Winder-Barrow High School and Brenau University. He served his country in the US Air Force and his community in the Athens Clarke County Police Department, retiring after 38 years. He was an active member of the American Legion, Post 163, where he connected with fellow veterans.

Dickey was a hardworking man who devoted much of his time to helping his fellow citizens and providing for his family. Outside of work, Dickey loved tinkering on cars, treating each trip to the junkyard for spare parts like a treasure hunt. He felt most at peace near water. His fondest memories included days spent fishing with friends and family and the many happy summers he and his wife spent at Myrtle Beach with their daughters. In retirement, Dickey took pleasure in the simple things--cutting grass on his riding mower, fussing at deer for eating his corn, and caring for the family's dogs, cats, and horses.

A celebration of Dickey's life will be held on Thursday, September 14, 2023, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Lord and Stephens West in Watkinsville, Georgia. Please join us to remember and honor his life.
