"Little Stephan" as we would call him, didn't really grow in height till he was 15 years old, mischievous in a good way but spent more than a few moments in timeout in middle school. "Little Stephan" enjoyed life to its fullest, avid camper, Xbox gamer, hot pocket connoisseur, excellent chess player and a great strategist in Risk Game. He would spend his relaxing time going to the lake with his family and friends, jet skiing, wake boarding and the daredevil he was back flipping off the highest cliffs at Medina Lake. He loved Las Vegas, just like his grandpa Fred, craps was his game. He had learned to ski last year and on his second day, again "THE DAREDEVIL" he went down the black slopes, usually reserved for more experienced skiers. Stef was loved by many, always had friends around him. He had a smile that would light up a room and a personality that was infectious to all. He would make others comfortable in his laughs and his love for his friends and family. There is nothing he wouldn't do for you, and those that knew him could attest to that. Stef was simple in life, he would dress in his infamous Xbox pajamas, blue converse, and Batman cap. He wanted all to be happy, he gave us 22 years of fond, fun, love and lasting memories to those that were fortunate to know him. He was also an organ donor, even in death he thought of others and saved lives. He will always be in our hearts and lives forever. Stef will be greatly missed by his parents Alfred James and Cindy Zepeda; siblings Alexis Brune and AJ Zepeda; sister-in-law Abby; niece Cece; grandmothers; uncles; aunts and cousins.
