The seventh child and fourth son of Henry Bernard and Sarah Elizabeth Gilliam Stein, he was known as "Lem" until he married his third wife, who called him "Ted." Born and raised in Peace Valley, MO, on Nov. 12, 1921, he married Mary Pauline Harper, daughter of Lenzy "Fate" Harper and Luemma Weeks Harper. They had two children, Nadine and Don, and lived on a cattle farm down the road from his father and across the road from her father. Mary Pauline developed tuberculosis, and they moved to Colorado in an unsuccessful attempt to nurse her back to health in dry air. After Mary Pauline's death, he married Edith Mathis in 1937. Edith died in 1948. In 1950 he married Hazel Bass.

He was happiest as a farmer, and gave up everything he owned trying to save his first wife's life. After her death he did not have the money to return to farming and lived the rest of his life in Denver, working for Gates Rubber Company. At his death he had 6 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren, and died one year after his daughter, Nadine, died of lung cancer. Grandpa died of lung cancer as well. Both had been heavy smokers.
