STEPHEN SALLEY September 2, 1951 ~ June 10, 2017 Stephen Salley, 65, of Vancouver, WA, died at home on June 10, 2017. He loved life, and lived it to the fullest, fighting like hell till the bitter end. Stephen was born Sept. 2, 1951 to Luther and Nancy Salley. He graduated from Parkrose High School. Stephen was a U.S. Army veteran (1970-1974). He was a baker at Franz Bakery for 34 years. Stephen was a good but simple man. Honest, loyal, and at times Grumpy.

Stephen is survived by his wife of 31 years, Sharon Salley; children, Justin Salley (Jessica), Jessica Kruse (Mike), Dana Pritchard (John), and Damon Craft; and 9 grandchildren.
