Obituary for Stephen V. Sikes

Stephen V. Sikes, age 89-1/2 years, died on March 29, 2021. Stephen was a Boy Scout, a member of ROTC, a USAF veteran, a competitive fencer in all three weapons, a chess player, and an active gardener and DIYer. He loved to read, to cook, and to create and design furniture. Stephen painted in acrylics and oils and collected some ribbons for the works he submitted to Dixon’s May Fair. He was an avid photographer, carrying his camera whenever he was out in nature.

In 1977, Stephen moved his family from the Bay Area to Dixon, where he would work with Dixon’s Architectural Review Committee and serve on the Planning Commission. He was also involved in Dixon Citizens for Quality Growth.

Stephen had a passion for science, and participated in the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UC Davis. Stephen earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Environment and Behavior at UC Davis and his Master of Social Work degree in Mental Health at CSU Sacramento. He retired from his supervisory position in Forensic Mental Health Services in Solano County followed by several years of private clinical social work practice in Dixon.

Stephen is survived by his four children, Jessica, Derek and spouse Mel, Aaron and spouse Bel, and Julianna; his wife Linda, and seven granddaughters. Stephen requested no funeral services and no flowers. If you wish to remember Stephen please donate a book to any Little Free Library in your neighborhood.
