SAUNDERS, Mr. Stephan Leigh Sr., We remember Stephan as a Renaissance man: artist, teacher, veteran, poet, musician, luthier, piano technician, Richmond native, friend and family patriarch. We tragically lost Stephan, 71, to the coronavirus on February 8, 2021. He is survived by the love of his life, Mary Alice Shaker; three siblings, five children, nine grandchildren, four great-grandchildren, three daughters-in-law and four cats. The family will hold a private ceremony in Maymont to honor his life. We expect Stephan to be listening nearby, without a doubt, playing the guitar.
