Mace is the son of Larry Mace and Vanessa Mace Adelson. He attended Loudoun Valley High School and went on to join the military. He was part of the 3-61 CAV out of Fort Carson and was stationed at Camp Keating Afghanistan. Stephan had a love for his family and the people in the community where he grew up. But his laughter and love didn't stop there. He was loved around the world. His passion for wildlife took him to South Africa, where he formed many lasting bonds. From the lives he touched in South Africa to the brotherly love he shared with his comrades in the Army, he made numerous friends through his travels. He had a smile for everyone. He will be dearly missed. Stephan is survived by his mother, Vanessa Adelson and her husband Richard Adelson, his father, Larry Mace and his wife Deb Mace, his brothers, Matthew, Bradley, and Christopher, his grandparents, Ted and Kay Petro, his Uncle and Aunt, Pete and Patricia Petro, his Aunt and Uncle, Diana and Lee Janes, and his Aunt Patricia Overend.
