Stephen W. Stamper, 84, passed away peacefully at his home in Ormond Beach, Florida on Tuesday, August 9, 2022.

He was born in Indianapolis, Indiana. He attended the Indiana School of Dentistry where he followed the career path of his Father and Grandfather. He practiced Dentistry in Daytona Beach for 47 years. He was a member, and past President of, the Jaycee’s. He was very involved with, and loved the camaraderie of, the Daytona Beach Dental Study Club. He was a founding member of the Smile Card, an innovative Dental Insurance Plan. He was proud to work on this endeavor with his son, Skip.

Steve lived life to the fullest and his laughter was contagious! He loved to travel, especially to Jamaica where he vacationed 16 times. He loved the music, the people, and the whole Reggae vibe. He enjoyed playing the Banjo in Boysie’s Banjo Band. He had an eclectic taste in music.

He was a nature-lover. He had a passion for Bamboo. He served as the Vice President of the American Bamboo Society for many years. He surrounded his home with many different imported varieties of Bamboo.

An animal lover, Steve had many animals and pets living with him over the years. His devoted rescue cat, Peaches, will miss cuddling with him.

Steve is predeceased by his first wife, Sybil Borns, with whom he had four children: Stephen Scott Stamper (Jaclyn), Stacia Anne Miller (Matt), Stewart C. (aka Skip) Stamper, and Samuel Todd Stamper.

Steve Married Judy Woodruff in 1986. It was a shared love of music that brought them together. Their children are: Chad A. Stamper and Melissa Goerke (Mitch).

Steve loved all his children and grandchildren dearly and his laugh and joy for life will be forever missed!

    I was so sad to hear the news of Steve’s passing. Old-time Ormond Beach residents will remember the ragtime concerts Steve and my dad put on at Billy’s Taproom at Halloween and St. Patrick’s Day and other holidays. Steve always sat at my dad‘s side near the piano to help my dad keep the beat. They sure knew how to have fun and brought a lot of people along with them. Somewhere out there, there’s a rendition of “Bill Bailey won’t you please come home” underway with a piano and a banjo leading the way. My condolences to all the Stampers.

    Steve was a great friend, fellow traveler and troublemaker with my dad Boysie. Old-time Ormond Beach residents will no doubt remember the many Halloweens and St. Patrick’s Days and other holidays they performed their ragtime music at Billy‘s Taproom. Steve was always seated at my dad‘s side by the piano so Steve could help keep the beat. They sure knew how to have a good time and to share it around with their live of music. I’ll always remember him with a smile. So sorry for all the Stampers.

    An old friend and wonderful dentist, Steve will always be remembered by my children and myself. We shared many memories over the years with our children and with the Jaycees. I especially remember that he took trips to Haiti to give dental care to children there. He was also a very talented piano player and played by ear! My deepest condolences to his children Wife and the rest of his family. Sincerely, Sue (Dobbs)childress1569
