Mark Kaylor, of Uzes, France, and two special sisters-in-law Jean Singer of Largo, FL and Kay Kaylor of Vero Beach, FL. His oldest brother John D.

Steven also leaves behind nieces and nephews John, David and Matthew Kaylor, Deborah Truehart, Carrie and Benjamin Kaylor, Daniel Schulz, Allison Kaylor Fox, MaryBeth Kaylor Corwith and L. Mark Kaylor, Jr. A gathering to remember Steven is planned for June at the family's home in Floyd. In recognition of the priority he placed on integrity and accountability, and his lifelong efforts to help journalists fulfill their potential, the family suggests memorial contributions in his name to ProPublica at ProPublica.org which supports the vital journalism that holds those in power accountable.
