    My sincerest condolences for the family. I was deeply saddened by the news. In the short time I knew Stephen from working with him he made me laugh and smile so much. He was an amazing person and will be missed. He’s been in my thoughts thinking of all the things we talked about and laughed or joked about in the few months I was able to work beside him. Once again my deepest condolences to his family.

    I always think of him with the hike you all did on Kathadin and across Knife’s Edge! I know he was an adventurer with hiking and skiing, etc….Whenever I saw him at Walmart, he was working steadily and friendly❤️I am sorry he is no longer with us….but Life Everlasting is an adventure worth it at the end. God be with you all

    I only knew Stephan from social media, but he was such a joy to have around in our groups. He will be missed by dozens, if not hundreds, of us online. RIP Stephan.
