He lived and worked in many countries throughout his life time and career; Ecuador, Australia, England, Indonesia, Scotland and Calgary. He worked with Burmah Oil, Canadian Oxy, Lasmo, BP and others. Stephen authored books on Canada’s involvement in the First World War, visited battle sites and was a resource for other historians and authors.
He leaves behind countless friends, comrades, cousins, and two special ‘grandchildren’, Ashianna and Qwinton. He will be missed!
