Peter Whitman Stephens
6/11/58 - 7/28/17
Pete decided to take the long nap after a short illness. He chose to go, because he never let anyone or anything make him do anything. Born at the Subic Bay Naval Station in the Philippines, he grew up in Massachusetts, Pete had the most amazing life. With a million dollar smile, a full head of hair, a great tan, a devil may care attitude, and a golden horseshoe, he lived more than anyone has any right to, and loved every minute of it.
He is preceded in death by his father, Whitman Garrick Stephens and grandson Thomas Whitman LaRue. He is survived by his wife Carolyn, his daughter Elizabeth (Kevin), son Peter (Jen), like-a-son Jeremy Stout (Leann), like-a-son Chris Gittens (Ashley), like-a-son Chris Doolan (Crystal), his mother Sue, his aunt Carol Thomas, sisters Cindy (Roger), Kathy (Jim) and Sheryl, grandchildren Tiffany and Levi LaRue, and a future granddaughter, many beloved cousins, nieces, nephews, and his best employee, Clyde Hambrick. He also leaves behind so many people who he influenced and loved him so much. Pete was our hero.
A celebration of life will be held at Pete's stage on Saturday, August 5, at his farm, from 3-9pm. The funeral will be Sunday, August 6, at Wallace and Wallace in Lewisburg at 2pm with Pastor Danny Bostic officiating.
