Stephen Terry Eagle

Resided in Rochester Hills, MI
Died January 23, 2014

Rochester Hills, MI
Stephen Terry Eagle passed away on Thursday, January 23rd at this home in Rochester Hills, MI.

He was born to Stephen and Julie Eagle in
Escanaba, MI on July 16th, 1987. He was the homecoming king of Vandercook Lake High School at the top of his class with a 3.9, he received five honor cords at graduation. He was a member of the National Honor Society, member of the marching band and president of SADD. He also sat on the State of MI board for SADD. He studied at Lake Superior State University. He then moved to Rochester Hills in May of 2012 where he lived with his second family, Messina, Amber, Joe, Willy, Joe and Gram Toland.

It seems impossible to sum up the life and person of Stephen Eagle, because he was everything. He was a dreamer, a cynic, he was handsome, he was sloppy, a comedian, an intellect, he was a brother, a son, a
connoisseur of terrible movies, and he was a friend.

Stephen had everyone at hello. No one was ever able to resist his charisma and gaiety. Anyone who had ever met him laughed until it hurt. For those he loved, and loved him back, Stephen loved well. His faith in a person was unconditional and he was loyal to a fault. He forced people to be themselves, but didn’t allow them to take themselves too seriously.

Stephen loved going to concerts, Shel Silverstein (author), and being a part of something. His hobby was the people he loved. That is where he found his bliss and where his true talent lie. He is survived by his mother, Julie Eagle, his sister Allee Eagle and her son Kashius,his brother Jordan Eagle and his daughter Julianna, his father Stephen Eagle and his fiance Stacy Cain, his Grandmother Belinda
Eagle, his adopted Grandparents Marlene and Butch Testini, his Great Grandparents Joyce and John Picard, his Aunts and Uncles, Elaine Eagle, Jamie Eagle, Ron and B.J. DeZorzi, and Jamie DeZorzi. He is also survived by too many cousins, friends and acquaintances to mention.

Stephen is preceded in death by his Uncle, Anthony “Tony”
Eagle, his Great Uncle Timothy Papineau, and his Grandfather Tim Finlan. Although we will miss him everyday we’re the lucky ones, it is those who never got a chance to meet Stephen who will truly suffer.

Private family visitation will be on Wednesday, January 29 from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM at the Skradski Family Funeral Home, 118 South 12th Street in Escanaba. The family will receive friends from 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM at the funeral home. Funeral services will be at 5:30 PM at the funeral home with Pastor Robert Derheim officiating. There will be a gathering afterward at the Delta Drop Inn Center, located at 1500 North 19th Street in Escanaba.

    Steve & Julie…Ellie & Jordan
    There are no words, my prayers go out to you.
    My sympathy and I’m thinking of all of you.
    I have a memory I will always remember,,,Stephen
    called me “Patti Roadrunner” I will remember him always.

    Cousin Patti

    I only had the pleasure of meeting Stephen a few times but I liked him instantly. He was sweet and sassy and funny and kind. God bless all of his family and friends. I wish you all comfort and peace.

    Words cannot express the deep sympathy I feel for each and every one of Stephen’s (or Stever as I remember calling him) family & friends. He was a blessing to know and I am grateful I had a brief moment with him recently that will live forever in my memory. He shared his love of life with everyone and for those who didn’t know him, you truly missed out on quite possibly the kindest person to have ever graced this lifetime. I will continue to pray for Julie, Stephen, Allie, Jordan and the rest of the family and extended family who loved him so.

    My little buddy, you brought sunshine on rainy days, your sweet smile could cheer up anyone feeling down. When you were little you always showed the biggest kindness, a gentle boy with many gifts, and oh how you shared those gifts with the world. In 26 years you made a difference, more so then a person of 90. I was given the chance to come back in your life and know you as a young adult and still you were full of kindness and wonder. The world is truly a better place due to your presence in it. I will carry your loving ways in my heart until we meet again. I know that the Creator has welcomed you into loving arms, and there’s a new angel in heaven.
    My prayers to your family may they find comfort in the life you lead.

    Love. Amy Hay
