From FaceBook:  

 Patty (wife) broke a foot real bad and had to go to a doctor. She had something in her tummy that was a bit swollen. From that doctor's visit one thing led to another. Test and whole nine yards. They discovered she had a humongous Tumor on her kidney and needed surgery right away. She went in 23 Dec and had a 5 lb tumor plus the kidney taken out. Yikes, but happy God decided to let me keep her for a while longer.

Anyway test was positive, but not stage 4 and was confined to tumor and kidney only. Looks like no chemo or radiation, only frequent checks for next five yrs.

Richard Ray "Rick" Stephens (September 16,1944 - October5, 2014) 
(member of the Springfield Class of '63)

Richard "Rick" Ray Stephens

Rick as he was known to his family and numerous friends passed away Sunday morning at Riverbend Hospital. He was a native Oregonian, and made his home here in Springfield. He met the love of his life, Jeannie, in 2012, and they married on June 22, 2013, they had finally found true love with each other, and for the short time they had together, it was the happiest time of their lives, adoring one another.

Rick was a Vietnam Veteran who served in the Marine Corps. He was a member of the VFW Post 3965 right here in Springfield. He also worked for the Coos County Sheriff's Office in Search and Rescue for many years, and enjoyed skydiving. He worked as a plasterer by trade for 35 years. He was an avid hunter and fisherman, loved to bow hunt, and enjoyed the outdoors, a true "mountain man" at heart. Rick made his own bow strings, handmade jewelry, and leather goods. Rick had a great sense of humor, and an uncanny ability to keep everyone on their toes and laughing with whatever came out of his mouth. He was truly "one of a kind", and to know him was to love him.

Rick is survived by his wife, Jeannie, their 2 babies, their beloved German Wire Hair Pointers, his two sons, Stewart Stephens and Rick Palo both of Springfield, Jeannie's daughter and son-in-law, Jim and Andrea Cagle of Eugene, 5 grandchildren, Madison and Mason Palo, and Joshua, Jaiden and Rhianna Cagle. He is also survived by 3 sisters, Mary, Deanna and Lana, all of Springfield, and numerous nieces and nephews.

There will be a potluck Celebration Of Life held at VFW Post 3965 Men's Auxiliary, 5344 Main St., in Springfield on Saturday, October 11th, at 3 p.m. Please come and share in the celebration of Rick's life with Jeannie!

* Rick and Evelyn Schneider Stephens `63, were married for many years and shared many amazing times.
