Obituary

"Our hearts are broken at the loss of a beloved husband, father, son, brother, uncle, and friend, Samuel Thomas Stephens. Sam was born in Athens, Georgia on February 7, 1961 and left this earth on September 23, 2017, at the age of 56. He is survived by his loving wife of 37 years, Janet M. Stephens of Aurora, IL where they spent the past 25 years; daughter Cristen (Raoof) Stephens of Champaign-Urbana, IL; mother Jean S. Deighton of Adams, TN; brother Paul (Myra) Stephens of St. Louis, MO; half-brother Kenneth (Judy) Stephens of Atlanta, GA; step-siblings Dirk and Jan Deighton of Sioux Falls, SD; niece Emily (Jimmy) Stephens of Sinclair, MO; and loving family members across Robertson County, TN and Gutherie, KY.

Sam served in the U.S. Navy and later became a field service engineer for Dornier MedTech America Inc. Sam was a generous friend to many and could always be counted on for a good laugh, good food, and good company. Over the years, he grew a love for travel, but his heart forever belongs to Tennessee where he and his wife first fell in love.

He is preceded in death by his father, Thomas I. Stephens of Athens, Georgia; brother Stuard Todd Stephens of St. Louis, Missouri; step-brother Jeff Deighton of Sioux Falls, South Dakota; and grandparents Madge and Clarence Stuard of Adams, Tennessee.

A memorial service will be held at 2 PM on Saturday, October 14, 2017 at The Healy Chapel, 332 W. Downer Place, Aurora, IL 60506, followed by a visitation from 3 PM – 5 PM.
