Stephen D. Vasey

Stephen D. Vasey Stephen D. Vasey, of Olsburg, Kansas passed away at the age of 74 on 2 July 2021 at Ascension Via Christi Hospital in Manhattan, Kansas.

He was born in Boston, Massachusetts on 31 October 1946. Stephen was a 1964 graduate of Dracut High school in Dracut, Massachusetts and went on to receive a Bachelor of Science in History from Kansas State University in 1990.

Stephen served in the U.S. Army for 21 years, including two tours of Vietnam. During his military service, he worked as a combat engineer, heavy equipment mechanic, and motor pool officer. He retired as a Chief Warrant Officer 3 in 1986. The second season of his professional life included an array of different professions. Most notably, Stephen was the inventor of a thermal targeting system for the military. After full professional retirement, he discovered a love and knack for baking which he gifted to his circle of friends and medical service providers who supported him as he grappled with Agent Orange-related illnesses, a result of his war-time service.

He was a lifetime member of the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Disabled American Veterans, and his church.

Stephen is survived by his four children: Allison Evarts and husband Kyle, Heather, Andrew, and Daniel; three grandchildren Joshua Evarts, Jonah Evarts, and Tryston Vasey.

A graveside service with military honors will be held at 10:00 a.m. on 24 July at the Olsburg Cemetery in Olsburg, Kansas. Pastor Sterling Hudgins of Agape Family Church will be officiating.
