Ralph Robert Stephens
October 9, 1955 – December 6, 2019

Ralph finally found peace. Beloved brother of Marla (Robert Dvorak), Alane, Roch (Holly Wilson), Ronald (Sharon) and Gina (Richard Tronecker) Stephens. Fun-loving uncle (and “Master Doll”) to Kristin Lane, Karla Stephens, Kate (Aaron) Hoffman, Josef (Anna Stello) Dvorak, Keith Stephens and Anna Dvorak. Cousin to Mark (Paula), Linda and Matt Lemmer; John Baus; Skeets, Cathleen (Michael) Stevens-Lang, and Karen Stevens; Steve (Sue) and Scott (Sue) Dehne and Sue Hopper; Monica Bartley, Martha Sheridan, Mary Kluck, Paul Stephans, Francie Robbe and John Stephans. Nephew of David (Sande) Lemmer. Stepson of Suzanne Stephens, and stepbrother to Richard Romans. Preceded in death by his parents Robert Michael Stephens and Joan Marie Lemmer Stephens, cousin Bruce Stevens, and other relatives and friends.

Ralph graduated from James Madison High School in 1973. If you were at The Tracks in the ‘70’s, you know him as DJ. His musical taste and knowledge go back to his work at Radio Doctors and 1812 Overture. He worked in sales, construction, trucking, and taverns. He lived in Los Angeles and Milwaukee.

We will miss his quick wit and sense of humor, his kind spirit, and his crazy memory for all things long ago. Our hearts are heavy, but his life was hard.

The family sends sincere thanks to his many friends, and the Community Care staff and providers, who cared for and about him over the years. No services will be held. Please honor his memory in a way that is meaningful to you.

Heartfelt Condolences to family and friends of Ralph Stevens. Ralph was a close friend of my older cousin and I watched them in wonder as they listened to music like the Rolling Stones, David Bowie and they always seemed to be the cool guys to us. He is at peace now in heaven and probably ensuring heaven knows the art of rock and roll!

Your family have my sincere condolences. It is a painful thing to lose a love one in death. Death brings great sorrow. Even Jesus cried when Lazarus died. But know that our Heavenly Father the one of all comfort and tender mercies is always here to get us through the difficult times. 2nd Corinthians 1:3,4.

Chillin out listening to motthehopple with "all the young dudes" and "sweet jane". It was a pleasure to have known Ralph! Rock on and rest in peace Ralph!🤘❤

I was there in those days. We smoked an awful lot of pot and listened to Tommy by the Who. One day I was returning a keg tapper to the Stephen's house and Ralph came to the door. I was smitten. I was only 17 years old but I managed to get into the Tracks on Tuesday night, ladies night. I never left! I spent "time" with Ralph up until 1985 when I move to Florida. He has never left my heart or mind. I got sober in 1988 and wondered if he ever did. I am praying for him and his family. I know in my heart what a good person Ralph was. May he rest in peace.
