Stephen was a devoted husband whose greatest joy was spending time with his family, and the pride and joys of his life, his grandchildren.
A few favorite pass-times were watching his grandchildren participate in sports, listening to classic rock music , bbq’s, watching Nascar, and Rams football and listening to Redbone with Lil Stevie and singing together ‘Come and Get Your Love.’ Grandpa Stephen made the best beans and also enjoyed baking.
He had a passion for Jesus Christ, and attended Victory Outreach Church Simi Valley, where he prayed for and led his family to the Lord.

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for His appearing. 2 Timothy 4:7-8
