Richard Brian Stephany, 51 years of age, of Blairstown, NJ, passed away suddenly on November 11, 2021. He was born on February 18, 1970 to Ronald Trube Stephany and Susan (Miller) Stephany in Morristown, NJ. He was self-employed as the owner/operator of Aspen Heights Tree Service. He loved the outdoors, being an arborist, and in earlier years had participated in competition tree climbing. His personal enjoyments were snow mobile adventures, various types of hunting, deep sea fishing, and bee-keeping. His passing has come as a tremendous shock to his family, friends, community, and beyond. His memory will continue to live on as we remember him for his antics, wild nature, laughter, helpfulness, and love.
He is survived by his wife of almost 20 years Kathleen, two daughters, Alicia and Faith Stephany, a grandson Odin, his mother Susan Stephany, two brothers-Robert Stephany and wife Jeanine, and Ronald Stephany and wife Danielle. He was predeceased by his father Ronald and sister Katherine Ann.
