Obituary Overview

Dwight Stephens

It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Dwight (Dad, Poppa, D-Man, Dwighty) Stephens in the early morning hours on Wednesday January 11, 2023 after a determined 2+ year fight with cancer.

He is survived by his wife (Anne Harris), his two children Samantha (Jordan) and Bill (Julie), his stepchildren Kym and Lee (Paula), his brothers Jack and Donald and his grandchildren Liv, Emma, Liv, Ava, and Jack.

A veteran of the Royal Canadian Navy and a former public servant as Chief of Telecommunications, Dwight will be remembered by his family and friends as an avid golfer and ice cream cone aficionado. He loved quiet mornings at the cottage, overlooking the lake, and time spent with his family. Dwight never missed a birthday (sending cards that sing and explode with glitter), an anniversary, the nightly news, or advising his kids on the latest consumer reports and wise ways in which to save money. Affectionately known as "grumpy", he was a quiet, loving man of few words and a giant heart.

Please join his family in celebrating his life at Capital Funeral Home and Cemetery, 3700 Prince of Wales Drive, Nepean ON on Saturday May 6, 2023 from 1 pm to 3 pm.  In memoriam, donations made to Hospice Care Ottawa: Ruddy-Shenkman Hospice are greatly appreciated."
