January 10, 1990 - May 24, 2022
Stephan Michael Rawles, 32, of Raleigh, North Carolina, passed away peacefully in his sleep on Tuesday, May 24th, 2022. Born January of 1990 in northern Virginia to Christine Yorty and Patrick Rawles, he graduated from Oakton High School in 2008. He continued his studies at The Pennsylvania State University where, in addition to developing a never ending love of Nittany Lion football, he was awarded a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering in 2015. He began his career in North Carolina as a structural engineer, gaining experience and expertise in a variety of telecommunication roles. At the time of his passing, he was working for the Delta Oaks Group. Stephan will forever be remembered for his intelligence, sense of humor, and witty comments. This was evident at an early age playing strategy board games and later participating in animated discussions on the format of the college football playoff. He loved family holidays, including trips to Rehoboth Beach and Texas, where his wonderful smile lit up every room. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him. He is survived by his father, Patrick Rawles and stepmother Nancy of McLean, Virginia; mother, Christine Yorty of Plymouth, Massachusetts; grandfather, Peter Bohacek of New York; stepfather Thomas Yorty of Sarasota, Florida; and stepsister, Allyson Kelly of Berryville, Virginia. In addition, he will be fondly remembered by countless friends and family members.
