On January 1, at 9:05 PM, Stephen Guy Church closed his eyes on earth and opened them in heaven. He served his country, which he loved, with distinction and honor during the Vietnam era in the United States Navy. It was during that time that he came to realize he was a sinner and accepted Jesus Christ’s free-gift of salvation.

He married the love of his love Barbara whom he never ceased to praise for her beauty. His only son David was born in miraculous fashion a few years later. David married Nikki, who was one of Stephen’s favorite people. His sisters Sharon and Sheryl have always been a big part of his life and have kept in touch over the years despite the distance. He greatly valued the time he got to talk on the phone with them. He loved his dog Bella and wished he had “discovered the boxer breed sooner.” His father Joseph and mother Mable have gone before him.

Stephen was an active member of his church throughout his life and an avid model railroader. He was known for his faithfulness, reading the Bible, and sharing his faith with others. He completed his earthly race at 72 years of age.

His viewing will be held at Stephens & Bean Funeral Chapel on Monday January 7 from 3:00 - 7:00 p.m., and the Memorial Service will be held at Ambassador Baptist Church at 11:00 a.m. on January 8th.
