CHAPPELL, Stephen Todd

Stephen Todd Chappell passed away at Miami Valley Hospital on November 9, 2021. He was born in Dayton, Ohio, on

September 9, 1964.

In his early years he lived in the Washington D.C. area when his father moved there to assist Senator Saxby in his newly won Senate Seat. Todd had a flavor for politics and followed the

local as well as the national arena. He read books profusely and dozens were found among his possessions.

While Todd was

confined to a nursing home in his later years, he used his

electric wheelchair to travel on his own to local nearby stores.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Patricia A. Chapppell and his father, Robert K. Chappell.

He is survived by his step-mother, Janice L. Young (Ralph), his brother, Christopher A. Chappell; step-brother, Benjamin H. Chappell.
