He has four nieces, one nephew, 13 cousins, many uncles, aunts and friends. He attended Desert Christian High School. Stephen excelled at soccer and art. At age 17, he joined the U.S. Army where he served two tours in Iraq. He developed camaraderie with his fellow soldiers and friends who became his family during his four years of service. Stephen left a lasting impact on those that knew him. He had a talent for making everyone around him laugh. He trusted Christ as his Savior, so we look forward to reuniting with him in Glory with our Great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.
