November 27, 2020, 63, Goldsboro
Ulysses Simpson “Steve” Mintz III, 63, suddenly went home to be with his Lord on Friday, November 27, 2020.
Steve was born in Fort Myers, Florida on July 27, 1957 to the late Ulysses Simpson Mintz II and Estelle Joyce Laidler Mintz. He was raised in Wilmington until the age of 7 and then moved to Goldsboro where he lived the remainder of his life. Steve graduated from Goldsboro High School and Wayne Community College. For 40 years, Steve was a valued employee of SPX Transformer Solutions, Inc. in Goldsboro.
Steve was a very strong believer in Jesus Christ and felt that nothing was impossible when you place your trust in God. His faith gave him the courage to face anything in life. Steve was a member of The First Pentecostal Holiness Church where he proudly served on the Emergency Response Team and was an active participant in their outreach ministry, Judgement House.
He was also a man of many talents from codirecting the Princess North Carolina State Scholarship Pageant to having the ability to fix whatever he saw and was known by his family as Mr. Fix-it. For many years, he and his wife volunteered raising money for the Victory Junction Camp (a camp for seriously ill children). Steve enjoyed photography, fishing, traveling and eating anything he could, especially when he could add hot sauce. He was also a huge Pittsburgh Steelers Fan. Above all, he loved spending time with his family and friends. He will be missed.
The family will receive friends on Wednesday, December 2, 2020 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. at The First Pentecostal Holiness Church followed by a service to celebrate Steve’s life at 7:00 p.m. in the sanctuary with Pastor Bill Rose and Pastor John Howard officiating. Attendees are asked to wear a face covering and practice social distancing. Interment will be at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, December 3, 2020 in Evergreen Memorial Cemetery.
Steve is survived by his wife of 20 years, Susan Talton Mitchell Mintz; beloved step-daughter, April Mitchell and his two grandchildren, Harper Davis and Saylor Davis; daughters, Stephanie Sander and Kristin Hamilton; grandchildren, Madison Sander, Cody Sander, Abby Sander and Chloe Hamilton; mother-in-law, Faye Talton Kornegay and husband J. Nelson Kornegay; and brother-in-law, Steve Talton and wife Ann. He is also survived by his sister, Susan Wilcox.
