A native of Abbeville and resident of Delcambre, Mr. Stephens passed away on Thursday, September, 14, 2017 at Our Lady of Lourdes Regional Medical Center in Lafayette surrounded by his loving family.

Christopher, or "Tis" as he was better known, was born on March 12, 1963 to the late John Coy Stephens, Sr. and Betty Domingue. Christopher was a family man through and through. To him, there was nothing more important in life than family, friends, and good company. He enjoyed visiting with friends and loved ones and telling stories, often humorous ones, about his boys and everything under the sun. Christopher had a passion for sports. Not only did he follow professional teams such as the LSU Tigers and New Orleans Saints, but he was also very involved with the local football and baseball teams in his community. Christopher had a talent for drawing and woodworking. He was a proud alumni of AHS Class of 81. A loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend, he will be truly and deeply missed by all those who knew and loved him.
