Ronald Paul Stephan

Ron was born in Chicago Illinois on March 3, 1941 and was the son of the late Charles Henry and Sophie (Norrish) Stephan. He graduated St. Willibrod High School in Chicago, Illinois in 1959 much to the delight of his parents. Ron made the courageous choice to join the Air Force stationed in California, Texas, and Spain. After his honorable discharged in 1966 he returned to Chicago where he held one of his all-time favorite jobs as a Driving Instructor. He came to New Hampshire with his former wife, Janice (Westwater) Stephan to raise his family in 1970. While living in Nashua, Ron attended Rivier University earning a BA in Business Administration. Celebrating any occasion or life milestone with family and friends is what Ron loved most. One dreary winter he even began the tradition of hosting a Groundhog Day Party, just to celebrate with friends.
