Stephen Allen Roberts
William Anthony Pappas
May 25, 1949 — July 15, 2019
Idaho Falls, Idaho
Nov. 24, 1953–July 25, 2019
Stephen Allen Roberts died of pancre-
atic cancer on July 15, 2019, at 12:54 a.m.
He was surrounded by family, friends and
Barb, his wife of 39 years.
Steve was born on May 25, 1949, in
Portland, Oregon, to his parents, Howard
W. Roberts II and Lou-
ise Moore Roberts. Steve
and his brothers, Howard
III (who preceded him in
death) and Dan, and his
sister, Nita, were raised
and schooled in Indepen-
dence, Oregon, where they
were blessed with numer-
ous aunts, uncles, cousins,
nieces and nephews.
Steve served in the
Army, and was stationed
in Germany during the
Vietnam War. Shortly
after retiring from active
duty, Steve reconnected
with the love of his life,
Barb Connelly, and they were married on
Aug. 15, 1981.
They began married life together in
British Columbia, Canada, where they
gleefully lived in a log cabin with no run-
ning water or electricity, but to them life
Upon returning to Oregon, Steve was
hired by Oregon Occupational Safety and
Health Administration (OSHA). He served
as a senior compliance ofﬁ cer in Clat-
sop County. Steve was a very dedicated
employee for 20 years, until he had to retire
due to Crohn’s disease complications.
During his employment, Steve took the
health and safety of employees as his per-
sonal responsibility, and was committed to
ensuring companies sent their employees
home safe and sound.
Receiving the diagnosis of pancreatic
cancer in April 2019, Steve chose not to
undergo chemotherapy. Instead, he decided
to be thankful for the time he had left and
the life he had lived, especially the 39
years he shared with Barb.
In his ﬁ nal months, Steve enjoyed rem-
iniscing with family and friends about his
many years of community contributions,
including but not lim-
ited to, Foster Parenting
for 5½ years, Boy Scouts
of America Webols Men-
tors and Camp Pioneer
program director, vol-
unteer ﬁ reﬁ ghter, 2008
Regatta president, creator
of Moose Lodge Holiday
decorations and lodge vol-
unteer and Astoria-War-
renton Area Chamber
of Commerce Crab and
Seafood Festival and
One of Steve’s favor-
ite projects was assist-
ing Barb on the annual
Christmas Wishing Tree program. Over the
years, this program provided gifts to more
than 35,000 children, who would have oth-
erwise gone without on Christmas day.
Steve will always be remembered for
his fondness of Louis L’Amour books,
hunting for deer and mushrooms and his
many dogs who gave him loyal compan-
ionship over the years. He is now at home
with the Lord, and is survived by his wife,
Barb, and his dog, Zeebers.
A remembrance celebration of life will
be held for Steve on Aug. 17, 2019, from
4 to 8 p.m., at the Astoria Moose Lodge
408/422. All are welcome to attend, share
stories of Steve and spend time with
Barb before she moves to Independence,
In lieu of ﬂ owers, please consider dona-
tions in the name of Barb Roberts to assist
her as she begins a new chapter in life.
On Thursday, July 25, 2019, William
(Bill) Anthony Pappas passed away sud-
denly at the age of 65. Bill — Billy to
friends and family — was born on Nov.
24, 1953, in Oroville, California.
In his own words, the best
and most important decision
Bill ever made was to ask his
beloved wife, Diana, to marry
him. Raising an eternal family
was his greatest work in life.
Bill led his family with quiet
strength, teaching — often
without words — how to love,
give, serve, work and have
Bill was a creator; he loved
to work with his hands. From gardening to
woodworking, Bill never stopped making
things. His creative talent shone brightest
through the poems he wrote, and the food
he cooked. He wrote poems for most of
his life, and gave them selﬂ essly to those
he loved. He created works of art with his
food, and shared them with everyone. His
love, heart and strength will be missed by
all whose lives he touched.
Bill is survived by his wife,
Diana, and seven children:
Danita, Samuel, Russell, Jaeda,
Randon, Casey and Anthony;
two brothers, Donny Martin and
Randy Pappas; and his sister,
He is welcomed to heaven’s
warm embrace by: his father,
Samuel Pappas; his mother, Fran-
ces Leonard; and his brother,
A memorial service for Bill will be
held at the Latter-day Saints Church,
located at 1403 S. Wahanna Road in Sea-
side, on Saturday, Aug. 3, at 1 p.m. All
who knew Bill are welcome.
