Friends of Joe Lee Stephenson honored him earlier this month with a memorial service in front of his Laurel Court home.
Joe Lee Stephenson, 60, died Nov. 11 after a bout with lung caner.
The Lancaster resident served in the U.S. Army as an Airborne Ranger. A Vietnam veteran, Stephenson was awarded a Purple Heart after he was wounded during combat.
His cancer had developed as a result of his exposure to Agent Orange while in service.
Stephenson's funeral was Nov. 16 in Orange, N.J., and local friends held the memorial service for him Dec. 4.
