A memorial service was held for Stephen Franklin Coons, 65, of Chico, on Friday, July 23, 2010 at 2 p.m. at Bidwell Presbyterian Church in Chico, CA. He passed away on Wednesday, July 14, 2010 in Palo Alto.

Steve was born on October 20, 1944 in Waukegan, Illinois, to Max and Marjorie Coons. He was proud to defend the country as a Marine for 4 years, was successful in the insurance industry for 22 years, and served the Presbyterian Church (USA) as Executive Director of Westminster Woods Camp and Conference center in Occidental, CA for 9 years. He also worked for Covenant Presbyterian Insurance Program until his retirement in 2008.

Steve was most proud of his marriage to Ann, raising his two children, Cherie and Jim, being father-in-law to Emily Coons and Dave Miller, and being Grandpa Steve to Julia, Jakob, Eliza Kate, Aubrie, and Travis. He loved the outdoors-especially fly fishing with his family and good friends. He could always be found laughing, telling stories, and loving others. He was a member and lay leader in several churches throughout his life, but most recently at Bidwell Presbyterian Church in Chico.
