Stephen was a valued friend who inspired and lifted spirits of dialysis patients at RDU. Everyone who met him enjoyed his comforting words, happy disposition and positivity. He was a very bright spark in the unit in an otherwise somber space.
I will also miss the shared posts and messages via Instagram.
Deep sympathy to his close knit family.

Honouring and celebrating a beautiful man. He was truly a gentle and joyful person: fond memories of Stephen always. My deepest condolences to all of you.
The service was perfect, so heartfelt and moving. Annette your Eulogy was beautiful …it captured the very special person Stephen was. I loved hearing about his childhood and Steve’s mischievous side.
Father young spoke so well too. Obviously Steve had touched his heart.
Steve did have a huge cross to bear most of his life, but always protected others from knowing how hard his life was, always thinking of others.
I will treasure the memories of my friendship with Steve and be forever grateful we met 44 years ago.
Love to you all.
Beautiful service for a lovely, loved man.

I wish you all my deepest sympathy and peace. Love Jennifer xxx
