Stephen Li Aaron Bokor was born in Kodiak, Alaska, on June 12, 1988. The family continued living there until coming to Astoria in 1992. Stephen was a happy child, full of energy, and had a strong circle of good friends.

He was a very loving, giving and passionate person. He touched the hearts of all who met him. He was very much into health and fitness. He took good care of himself and always tried to help his family get healthier.
He loved life, loved people, loved his family, country and the world. He loved traveling and had been many places, including Korea to attend the World Culture and Sports Festival about 10 years ago.
He was also a very skilled poker player, spending much of his 20s succeeding at that. Poker was one of his passions. He traveled a lot, participating in many tournaments, following his dream of someday winning a million so he could buy his parents their dream home by the ocean.
He was an amazing chainsaw artist, creating many beautiful animals out of logs. He worked really hard at it and loved what he did.
He cared deeply about his brothers and sister, and always took time to help them through their struggles. He was also a wonderful uncle to his nephew, Oliver. He always greeted him with a hug and a huge smile. He took the time to talk with him, play with him and laugh with him.
