Don Stephens, 75, of Andrews, passed away on Wednesday, March 20, 2019 in Odessa, Texas.

Family and friends will gather to celebrate his life at 10:00 AM Saturday, March 23, 2019 at the McNett Funeral Home Chapel with Pastor Brant O’Connor officiating. Cremation is under the personal care of McNett Funeral Home. Please celebrate his life by visiting www.mcnettfuneralhome.com.

Don was born on June 5, 1943 in Brownfield to Garland and Mary Boykin Stephens. He grew up in Earth, Texas and attended and graduated from Springlake High School. Don married Peggy Kelley on June 4, 1966 in Earth, Texas. He served in the Navy from 1960 to 1964. Don was rancher, he loved the cowboy life and ranching. He was a Dallas Cowboy fan in good times and bad times, and also enjoyed the Texas Rangers

March 20, 2019, that’s the day the Good Lord called our dad up to heaven. He is the greatest man we have ever known. He was so tough and gruff and strong. I’ll tell ya, the phrase “Cowboy up!” applied to this man in every single way possible. Inside that tough exterior, there was a tender hearted, sensitive, loving man. I can’t help but quote “daddy’s hands” when I think of him. It’s like it was written for him. He is my hero! Has been my entire life! He’s our foundation. He’d do anything for his family. He loved us for everything we are and even when we were on hard times we never went without. He was a provider, a stand-up guy, a friend and husband a daddy and a Poppa! Dad was a stubborn old fart, I use to tease him and tell him when he got old, I was just going to take him out to the ranch and put him out with the cattle. He’d just say “ok, sounds like heaven to me!” I have so many wonderful memories of this man. I can tell you this, not another person in this world could ever smell as good as my dad! I mean who would’ve thought that Ben gay and old spice would go together! Right! Lol... I got 41 blessed years with him and though it seems like a lot, I wasn’t enough I mean Amanda got 51, after all she is the oldest. My mom and dad were married 3 months shy of 53 yrs. I know right, that’s a long time! Amazing!!! Give them a gold medal, wait they got that at 50 yrs! Wow, they have a love like no other. Tolerate, patient, loving, kind and fiery of course. They are couple of Champs! Dad, you will be missed but we all carry you with us, you are the man, the myth, the legend, and a true Cowboy by definition. Forever in our hearts, Stacy

Don was preceded in death by his parents, two brothers, Kenny and Gayland Stephens.

He is survived by his wife Peggy of Andrews, two daughters, Amanda Alberts of Andrews, Stacy Moore of Andrews; four grandchildren, Stephen Alberts and wife Jade, Megan Nelson and husband Jonathan, Kade and Zane Moore.
