Stephen Wayne Thomas was born September 22, 1936 to Cobie and Jane Hoback, adopted, loved and reared by Kenneth and Ruth (Dotts) Thomas.

He married Marilyn Emily Hokel on March 2, 1957. Stephen was employed at ISU for over 30 years. He enjoyed family activities and trips to Branson and never missed a Friday football game or a Boy Scout camp out.
