My gosh I accidentally came across this memorial, I knew Stephen in 1968 while he was stationed upon the USS Ranger. I knew him along with Francais LaChance and Bill Daly Jr. who rode motor cycles throughout California. We had a great friend - Barbara Rigby in common. My hope is that he didn't suffer. Blessings go out to all of his family that he left behind. There was no wife mentioned in his memorial - but he was one of the greatest person I've known. Please respond if you have any questions about my time with him. I see from the memorial that he was a church goer and had love in his life from so many people. RIP Stephen - I wish I would have found you sooner - but will see you again someday.
