Stephenson Jr., Benton E. "Steve" - Santa Fe  
BENTON E. STEVE STEPHENSON JR. Benton E. "Steve" Stephenson Jr., 80, of Santa Fe passed on Thursday, November 20th, 2014. Steve began his journey on September 18, 1934, born to Caroline and Benton Stephenson Sr. in Natrona County, Wyoming. During Steve's childhood the Stephenson family took in Kay Sanderson who Steve thereafter referred to as his sister. Steve attended Oregon State University on a Navy ROTC scholarship, earning a degree in engineering. Steve fulfilled his commitment to our nation by honorably serving in the U.S. Marines. As a Marine, Steve discovered his passion for flying and proudly earned his pilot's wings. One auspicious evening, on a double date, Lt. Stephenson met his beloved Lynn. Initially mismatched, both couples realized their mistake, and Steve married Lynn Marie Eadie on October 25th, 1958, beginning a half century of wedded bliss. Upon Steve's departure from the Marines he worked for Pitney Bowes. After a few years Steve came home one day and announced that no matter how hard he tried he couldn't fly a desk. Shortly thereafter Steve began his piloting career with Eastern Airlines and greatly enjoyed flying for each of the next 21 years. During this period he and Lynn both received their ordinations as ministers in the UCC and opened a church in South Florida. After Steve's retirement from Eastern Airlines he became a realtor for many years, Steve joined the Small Business Development Center in 2003 and worked there until his final retirement just last year. Steve lived in a number of states in his life including: Wyoming, Oregon, Alaska, Florida, North Carolina, Connecticut, and then New Mexico. Steve and Lynn loved to travel, and they took advantage of the opportunities he had at Eastern to travel widely. Steve and Lynn had many journeys far and wide both physically and spiritually. It was one of those journeys that led Steve and Lynn to find a community more open to alternative medical and spiritual offerings, drawing the Stephenson family to Santa Fe in 1980. Another life changing family journey around the world in 1988 started Steve on the path to becoming a practicing Buddhist. Over the years Steve and Lynn took a great many people into their home and into their hearts, including a number of their children's friends. Steve was preceded in death by his parents, Caroline and Benton Stephenson Sr., and his beloved wife Lynn. Survivors include his sister Kay, his daughter Lisa Rogers, his son Stuart Stephenson, his daughter Christina Stephenson, and his son John Stephenson and daughter-in-law Peggy, 7 grandchildren, 13 great-grandchildren and far, far too many other loved ones to count. A celebration of Steve's life and continuing journey will be held at 11:00 am on Tuesday, November 24th at the Masonic Lodge in downtown Santa Fe. For those unable to attend, the family may be reached via email at: mushymom@yahoo.com . The family asks that instead of flowers, donation be made to KSK Buddhist Center of Santa Fe.
