  • Stephen Keene was born November 25, 1961 in Baltimore, Maryland to the late LeRoy and Bessie Keene. He was raised as a Christian. The youngest of fifteen children, Stephen was affectionately known as “Stephie” and “Beff”. Early Sunday morning, September 16, 2012, our hearts were broken when he was suddenly taken from us.
    Stephen attended Baltimore City Public Schools. He graduated from Northern High School in 1980. After graduating high school, he enlisted into the United States Army. He served in the Army from July 1980 through July 1983 at which time he was honorably discharged. During his term, Stephen travelled to Wiesbaden, Germany, and returned with many stories about his experiences there.
    On May 29, 1997, Stephen was joined in holy matrimony to Denise Mauricette. Married for fifteen years, they resided in Baltimore, and maintained continuous contact with family members and friends. He was employed at the Jewish Community Center as a Masseur. He was also employed at Baltimore Spice Company and Elite Spice Company. Stephen enjoyed listening to music, playing chess, and especially watching Ravens football games. Stephen specifically enjoyed partying with his good friends Jack and Bud, while the family enjoyed his famous “Beff Burgers”.
    Stephen will truly be missed. He leaves to cherish his precious memories: his wife, Denise; children Tiffany, Tonice and Desmond; grandchildren Tianna, Jordan, Dylan and Desmond, Jr.; brothers Walter David and JayCee; sisters Lorraine, Lois, Ava, Bernadette, Helen and Angela; in-laws William, Lydia, Adelle, Doreen and Jean; his best friend Terrance (and other members of the ‘61 club); as well as a host of other relatives and friends.
