Stephen Douglas Wythe, 64, passed away very peacefully at his home in Poth, Texas on March 13, 2021 after a long battle with multiple sclerosis.
Stephen was born to Landon D. Wythe and Ola Frances Wythe on October 16, 1956 in Amarillo, Texas. He grew up in College Station, Texas where he attended A&M Consolidated High School and graduated Texas A&M University with a degree in Animal Science.

After college, Stephen worked in ranching, animal health pharmaceuticals and banking. In 1987, Stephen was one of the judges at the International Brangus Futurity. The futurity was considered one of the most esteemed cattle breed shows of its time. He later worked for Compass Bank as a Regional Training Manager until he became ill in 2006.
Stephen was a wonderful father and was very proud of his two daughters, Stephanie and Catherine. He was very involved in all of their school activities but especially looked forward to watching them play sports. He was an avid sports fan. He also loved meeting and visiting with people. He never met a stranger. He was once given the nickname Radar by his co-workers, because anytime they needed to know about a breeder or big operator they would ask him.
Stephen is survived by his wife, Fran; daughters, Stephanie and Catherine; sisters, Margaret Miller and husband John, Rebecca Engram and husband Barry; nieces, Julie and Courtney Miller, Amanda Engram, Audrey Hall and husband Mark; nephew, Andrew Engram and wife Bri.
