Stephens, Stewart H.  
Stewart H Stephens DURHAM - Stewart H Stephens, 88, of Emerson Rd, Durham, died Tuesday, Jan 20, 2015 at Portsmouth Hospital after an illness of three weeks, surrounded by his family. Stewart was born in Goshen, N.Y. on Dec 13, 1926, the son of Dr. Homer and Mrs. Alida Stephens of Walden, N.Y. He grew up in Walden, attending Walden schools and graduating from Walden High School in 1944. Stewart was a proud member of the Walden High football team. He was active in Scouting, achieving the rank of Eagle Scout, and was later involved in scout leadership, where he really liked passing on life skills to the boys in his circle. Stewart enlisted in the Navy in December of 1944. After the war, following the family tradition, he attended Union College in Schenectady, N.Y., and graduated in the class of 1950 with a B.S. degree. (He had some pretty funny stories about fruit-fly genetic research in the 1940s.) While attending Union College, he became a member of the Kappa Alpha fraternity, developed life-long friendships and always spoke well of the influence of the fraternity on his life. Stewart worked in several fields before settling on business computer systems in the 1960s. He was employed in that field with Orange County government in Goshen, NY in the early 70s, and later by Empire National Bank in Newburgh. Upon moving to New Hampshire in 1980, he finished his computer career with Liberty Mutual in Portsmouth, retiring in 1992. Stewart was a long time member of the Iroquois Hunting and Fishing Club, and enjoyed many happy times at the Stephens family 'camp' in Sullivan County, NY, even after the move to N.H. Stewart was interested in many things, especially history, and was a charter member of the Walden Historical Society. He loved stone walls, working in his basement wood shop and sailing in Maine. He enjoyed travel (his immediate response was always "I'll go"), and after retirement lived for 3 years in Europe, where he collected his baguette each morning and helped the shop owners who wanted to practice their English. After retirement, he discovered collecting and restoring antique electric fans with his buddy Dennis, and they enjoyed many excursions to yard sales and auctions hunting forgotten brass-bladed fans. He is survived by his wife of 37 years, Havrilla Stephens of Durham; stepsons (of whom he was very proud) Josh Terrell and his wife Kaija Jones of Seattle, Wash., and Adam Terrell of Newmarket, N.H.; by his sister Lucile Stephens Jones of Wappingers Falls, N.Y., niece Susan Wynn of New Paltz, N.Y., and nephew Joel Kling, his wife Genell and grand-nephew Dylan of Lake Mary, Fla. The family will receive well-wishers at home in Durham, N.H. on Sunday, Jan 25, 2015, from 1 to 4. Visitation from 10-11 a.m. on Saturday January 31, 2015, at Millspaugh Funeral Home, 22 Bank St., Walden, N.Y. 12586. Remembrances from family and friends will follow at 11 a.m. at the funeral home. Burial will follow in the New Paltz Rural Cemetery, New Paltz, N.Y. Flowers are acceptable; alternatively, contributions in Stewart's memory may be made to the Walden Historical Society, PO Box 48, Walden, N.Y. 12586.
