Steven Tracy Odell, 1940-2016

My dear Steven, you passed away in the early morning hours on Dec. 5, 2016, in Tehachapi as I held your hand and told you it would be okay if you had to go. I told you I loved you always and forever. I said I believe there’s another place beyond this world we know, so that when our time on earth is done, we have a place to go. I know in my heart you will wait for me, and I will find you home. I know in my heart we will meet again — for a love like ours, it never ends. And I told you I wouldn’t say goodbye because there will be another time for you and I.

My Steven is missed by our many friends. He was always there to lend a hand, an ear and his time. He loved being outside, working with his hands and doing home improvements.

My Steve, till we meet again — all my love always, your wife, Judy.

A Celebration of Steven’s life will be scheduled at a later date. Wood Family Funeral Service has been entrusted with his care. For condolences, please visit
