Obituary

THOMAS EUGENE STEPHENS
September 24, 1949 ~ May 13, 2011

Thomas Eugene Stephens passed away at his home in Vancouver, WA on May 13, 2011, at the age of 61. He was born Sept. 24, 1949 in Park Rapids, MN to Leonard and Ida Stephens. His family moved to Hazel Dell when he was a young boy and that is where he was raised and went to school, graduating from Columbia River High School in 1967.
Tom went to trade school to become an electrician. He finally settled in Battle Ground, WA and called that home until just recently, moving to Vancouver.
Tom worked for many different electric companies during his life. He last worked for Porter Electric and continued on there for fifteen years until he retired in 2005 due to his health.
Tom loved to play baseball and softball ever since he was little. He was in little league when he was younger and continued playing well into his 40's. He enjoyed deer and elk hunting and fishing, often going up on Mt. St. Helens. When he went to the mountains, many times, rather than hunt, he would shoot the animals with his camera. He was fascinated by wilderness and the wildlife that lived in it and delighted in taking as many photos as he could. Tom also treasured his little dog, Topper.
Tom is survived by his sister, Vicky Heath (William) of Yacolt, WA; his brothers, Don Stephens (Sharon) of Woodland, WA and Ron Stephens (Maryann) of Ridgefield, WA; his daughter, Tiffany Truckey (David) of Vancouver, WA; and four grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his father, Leonard, who passed away in 1995; his mother, Ida, in 2000; and his beloved "Topper".
Tom had been under the care of Kaiser Hospice and thought the world of the people that were helping him in his time of need. The family would like donations to be made, in lieu of flowers, in honor and memory of Tom, to Kaiser Hospice.
Arrangements under the direction of Davies Cremation & Burial Services, Vancouver, WA.
