He was born in Chicago, Ill., on Dec. 10, 1958.
Stephan graduated from the University of Central Arkansas with a degree in business management, and had only recently returned to Conway because of his fondness for the area. However, his heart had remained in Snowflake, where he had lived 14 years, and had many friends and family there who loved him dearly for his kind and gentle heart.
He worked at the Snowflake School District with special needs children while in Snowflake, and in Conway, he worked with special needs adults. He was always very active in the Catholic Church.

He will also be greatly missed by close friends Jock and Bonnie Heal and their son Tony, who loved Stephan deeply.
He will be remembered always by all his family and many friends.
