NC/RC (NWA) Capt. Carl William 'Bill' Stephens

Belated notification....this is an ALPA reported death that we had not previously been made aware of.  The ALPA issue month shows when the death was reported. 
Below is what information I could find for (NWA) Capt. Carl William ‘Bill’ Stephens.  Captain Stephens’ obituary indicates he first joined North Central Airlines.  He would have made the merger with Republic, and retired before the merger with Northwest Airlines.
Additional information and/or corrections are always appreciated.
Thank you very much,
~ Carol for the PCN

STEPHENS, CARL WILLIAM "BILL": Newspaper Obituary and Death Notice
Knoxville News Sentinel (TN) - Wednesday, September 4, 2013
was born January 22nd, 1928. He grew up in Urbana, Illinois, the son of a Hall of Fame coach and an English teacher. In 1946 he enlisted in the Marine Corps, and later finished an aeronautic engineering degree from Purdue University. The love of his life was flying, he washed airplanes in high school and his pay was flying lessons. By the time he finished at Purdue he was ready to join the work force as a pilot, starting out at North Central Airlines flying Corvairs and 30 years later retiring as a captain piloting DC-9s. He married Joyce Sizemore, a nurse from Middlesboro, Kentucky, who lived in his apartment building in Detroit, and they settled in Ypsilanti, Michigan. Sailing on Lake Erie and riding around in a Karmann Ghia gave way to raising a family of five kids, Tad, Kari, Billy, Ron, and Josie. The family eventually relocated to Seymour, Tennessee, and he said goodbye to Joyce, who passed in 1998. He met his wife of 14 years, Sandra, who played the piano at his church. They married and remained in the Seymour area. In addition to Joyce, he was preceded in death by his grandson, Zachariah Greene; and his son-in-law Robert Greene; and his granddaughter, Kaitlin Stephens. Surviving family members include his wife, Sandra; two daughters, Kari Pierrard and her husband, Mike of Livonia, Michigan, and Josie Stephens of Pigeon Forge; three sons, Tad and his wife, Diane of Atlanta, Georgia, William and his wife, Carol of Knoxville, and Ron of Dandridge, Tennessee; ten grandchildren; and, as of last month, one great grandson, Jude McLaughlin of Chicago, Illinois. The family will receive friends at Highland South Funeral Home from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 4th, with funeral services immediately following in the chapel of the funeral home. Interment will follow in Highland South Memorial Park. Reverend Chad Rittenhouse will be officiating.
