Roy Stephens

Sept. 17, 1923 — Jan. 9, 2013

Roy Stephens died peacefully at home on Jan. 9, 2013, after being ill for some time. His wife preceded him in death in 2011. They had been married 37 years. He was born Sept 17, 1923, in Oakland, Calif. He was the father of two daughters, one who preceded him in death. He had two step-daughters and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Roy was a man of the world who loved golfing, fine food and 5 o’clock martinis. He was a storyteller, since he had been in the merchant marines for 30 years and been around the world three times. He as a bar keeper for 14 years at the AC Flea Market in Castro Valley. He moved to Placerville 24 years ago with his wife, who was born and raised here. He loved his friends and held them very dear. We will always remember “Handsome Roy.” He was loved and will be missed deeply.

If you wish you can make a donation on his behalf to Hospice. No services will be held.

    I met Roy while working for Cold Springs Golf & Country Club in the late 90's. I still remember his Sweet Smile and the Love he had fo his Family. I was saddened when he lost his voice, but He NEVER EVER Lost his Spirit or His Smile. Go be with Your Blushing Bride and Your Baby Girl. Rest High on that Mountain Roy, God bless and Keep you. Until we meet again Dear Sir.

    I had the good fortune of meeting Roy in the early Nineties. He had built himself a wonderful 9 hole putting green in his back yard. It was well designed and built. All natural martial as well as mower cut grass. What fun. Roy became a good friend and confidant.His love for Joy of all types was very inspirational. Barbara was a woman so different then Roy yet they were a match made in heaven. She was what I like to call, "a native son" Born and died in Placerville. I grew very fond of her. They will both be in my thoughts always. He was a special man. His type does not come by often enough in this world.

    Roy was my great grandfather and I am crushed to find this on Facebook and none of my family could contact any of my 6 brothers and sisters to notify them.. I miss u Roy I will forever remember the visits at carrows and the stories u told of my mother in her early years. I am sorry you were not celebrated correctly but I promise our hearts celebrate today for u are now with ur wife and our mother. I just miss you and am sorry...
