Mom and Pops Stephenson always treated me as family. He'd go out of his way to lend you something. His quick wit and sense of humor combined with his smirkish smile will be missed. Love you Stephensons!!!

It has been an honor to know and associate with Dale Stephenson. Dale cared—he cared about people as a group and as individuals, the community, the environment, and his faith in Jesus Christ. He is a great example of doing something good each day. We have lost our frequent interaction with Dale, but we haven't lost him. His memory and great influence lives with us still. Glen Miller, high school classmate and beneficiary of his love and caring.

Craig and I are so sad to hear of Dale's passing. He was always so good to Kashton, giving him K'nex and always stopping to say hi to him at
church. He was a good friend and a good man. May the Lord bless you and your family.
Love, Craig, Sue, Kashton Prestwich
