Jesse Lesley “Les” Stedam, age 74, of Lancing,TN went home to be with the Lord July 31, 2020. He was born the second of 16 children to Lee & Annie Stedam. Les attended Deer Lodge Elementary and graduated from Sunbright High School. After moving to Markleville, Indiana he worked for Nicholson File & Pimrode Tool and Die. Les moved back Tennessee in 1984 and worked for Oak Ridge Tool and TN Tool and Engineering. Les loved hunting & fishing and was a great handyman. The time he spent with his family will always be cherished. He enjoyed playing card games (and always winning with his partner, Peanut) and going to the races with his sons, Mark & Mike. Riding four wheelers, scouting deer tracks, road trips, pond hunting, fishing, and picnics in the woods (equipped with a BBQ sandwich from Harry’s) will always be special memories that his grandchildren hold dear. Les loved telling jokes, and he made sure to give his “short wave” to every one he passed.

Les was saved and gained his salvation July 21, 2020 and is now celebrating in the Kingdom of Heaven with his wife of 50 years, Linda Lou Stedam, his parents, siblings, Leroy, Ed, and Lela Stedam, Leta Garrett, and Theresa Sutton, special niece, Amber Taylor, and a host of aunts & uncles.

Survivors include sons, Mike Stedam and wife Freda, and Mark Stedam, granddaughters, Leah & Kayla Stedam, special “grandchildren”, Lacey, Mikey & Skyler, great-grandchildren, Marleigh & Emory, siblings and spouses, Michelle & Jeff Dyer, Lou & David Frytag, Keith & Crystal Stedam, Teddy & Carrie Stedam, Steve & Sandra Stedam, Kathy & Sam Howard, Kim & Brian Haynes, Rex & Lucy Stedam, Janice & Danny Rhymer, and Milly Griffith, and his dog, Tyson, as well as a host of nieces, nephews, and other loved ones.

The family will receive friends 6:00-7:30pm on Thursday, August 6, 2020 at Davis Funeral Home, Wartburg Chapel. A Celebration of Life will follow at 7:30 pm with Rev. Randy Griffis and Rev. Joey Aytes officiating.
