Not sure what to say?

I had Mr. Stephen as a teacher at (the new) Las Vegas High twice: first for Physics my junior year, then for Calculus my senior year.

I have extremely fond memories of Calculus class and enjoyed it immensely. Occasionally Mr. Stephen would have us write our own questions (I believe he sometimes used these on tests; but my memory is fuzzy). I would do my best to get a chuckle from him by crafting the most ridiculous story problems that made use of the required techniques. Many of...

Mr. Stephen was my Math Teacher, at the original Vegas High. I can honestly say that I don't know anyone that ever had anything but positive words for Bud. My sincere condolences to Danny, and the rest of Buds family.

So many fond memories of Mr. Stephens as a teacher and theater director. He touched the lives of me and so many of my classmates. Thank you for what you did.

Our deepest condolences to Anne and all the Stephen family. May you rest in peace, Bud.

Our condolences to Ms. Anne & the Stephen family. Bud was a good person and an amazing teacher; he was loved by both of my children & he will be missed.

Mr. Stephen (& Ms Anne) made my senior year bearable - my favorite year of high school due to theater and choir (graduating class 1988) - he believed in me when I had no confidence in myself. That year was the most fun I had in all my school years, I will never forget it. My condolences to the family for the loss of this great man. Dana Wall.
