David Lee Stephens passed away at home on Dec. 3, 2016. David was born in Redding, Iowa, to Lela Baird and Lester Minor Stephens on Jan. 25, 1937. After graduating from high school he entered the service in Des Moines, Iowa. There he trained as a Dental Hygienist and went on to serve in the Army for 20 years earning multiple medals and serving in many countries including Germany, Vietnam and Alaska. In 1981, Dave and his wife, Ruth, moved back to Alaska. Dave and Ruth shared a love of old cars and enjoyed showing their cars in local auto shows. David was a member of the Street Rodders club. They loved traveling together and split their time between Hawaii and Alaska. David was Mason and a Shriner. David was known for his kindness and generosity. It was not unusual for him to give someone the money in his wallet, help them find a place to live and work, and give them a car to drive. He is preceded in death by his first wife, Ruby; son, David Lee Jr.; and by his wife of 30 years, Ruth; and son, Vincent. He is survived by his children, Lee Stephens, Connie Huffman and LaVonne Stephens; his sons, Burlie (Lola) Baugham and Randal (Tammie) Petersen; and grandchildren. His family would like to thank Patricia Rae for caring for David in his last years. A family memorial and graveside services are planned for later this summer.
