Later in his career, he spent many years working at Reynolds Metals and Phillip Morris, earning a reputation as a man who could solve any problem, whether it was electrical or mechanical. In addition to his work-related accomplishments, he was a member of the Masons, and his character and willingness to help anyone who needed it was demonstrated daily by the way he lived his life. Stephen is survived by his wife of 34 years, Janice, as well as family and friends who loved and knew him well.
