Harry H. Stephens Jr., M.D.
Mark, I heard of your father's home going and my prayers for you and the family during this time of tears and memories. Our family's share a few memories of church choir, camp, softball and Christmas pageants enjoying your family at each moment. Blessings Dianne, you and your family are in my prayers.
Back in the late 1960's and early 1970's, my father and mother used to take us to join the Stephens family at Granite Shoals for camping weekends. I remember their AirStream trailer, and sitting around the campfire singing Southern Gospel songs. Great memories. One time, when I was about aged 10 or so, I left the group to go check out the rental boats. When I walked back, I said, "dad, can we rent a b," my sentence being broken by riotous laughter and leg slapping from the men (Dad, Dr. Harry, Scott and Michael). Seems that they had made a 5 dollar bet or something that the first thing I would say when I got back was to issue an inquiry about the boat. I still smile when I think of that :). Dr. Harry was a generous man, a warm hearted person. I appreciate all the generosity of the Stephens family, having offered to watch the Cunningham kids while our mom was in the hospital with a terminal illness. I can't wait to meet up with Dr. Harry in heaven. God bless.
My thoughts and prayers are with you, Diane, and your family at this time. When I moved to San Antonio in 1976, I remember first meeting him briefly at church when I joined. Later when I needed medical care, I called the doctor that my doctor in California had recommended me to him as both men were involved in medical mission work, to my surprise it was Dr. Stephens. I had not made the connection, but I found that He was kind and caring. Years later when I became a nurse, he was supportive to me. I will miss his smile and words of encouragement. I will always associate medical mission work with his name. Prayers and Blessings,
my father, coyle w williams (orthopedic surgeon), passed away just two days before dr. stephens. they were great friends and partners in sharing the Gospel through their practices and in serving the poor here and overseas. i remember dr stephens as a kind and gentle man that my father had great love and respect for. we are all so thankful he is rejoicing in Heaven.

Right after moving to San Antonio in 1970 we took our daughter to Dr. Stephens. During our visit he ask us if we had found a church since moving to San Antonio. We had not so he began to tell us about the great church he went to Castle Hills First Baptist Church. He seemed so excited about his church we decided to visit and later became members. He was our family doctor until he retired. He was a good doctor but a better man of God. May God grant Dianne, Michael, Scott, Mark and the other family members an extra portion of His grace during this time and the weeks ahead.
