CASA GRANDE — Ralph Philip Stevens, 82, a retired Army colonel, died due to complications of pancreatic cancer on Feb. 1, 2020.
Col. Stevens had a long list of life accomplishments. Always the stoic, he took his cancer diagnosis over two years ago in stride. After three rounds of chemotherapy and radiation, he still had a stiff upper lip and was ready to soldier on without complaint.
He was devoted to his family and known for his wisdom and love.
He was preceded in death by a son, David, and is survived by two sons, Gary and Alexander; his wife, Patricia; two former wives and friends, Norma and Christine; two siblings, Ramona and Linda; and three grandchildren.
Celebration of life and potluck from 4 to 6 p.m. on March 11 at Sundance 1 RV Resort.
J. Warren Funeral Services in charge of arrangements.
