In Memory of Stephen L Sapp
April 7, 1960 – December 11, 2015

Stephen Lee Sapp died suddenly of natural causes on Friday, December 11, 2015. He was 55. Steve is survived by his beloved wife of 33 years, Theresa; their children, Benjamin Lee, 32, and Catherine Anne, 27. Steve was born in Oklahoma City to Bert (d. 2001) and Susan Sapp (d.2007), who relocated to Lawrence, Kansas and built a life there. Steve excelled in debate at both Lawrence High and Kansas University, so it was no surprise when he followed in his father’s footsteps and pursued a law career. After graduating with honors from the University of Kansas School of Law, Steve initially thought he wanted to become a litigator. But it soon became apparent that he had a particular knack in the realm of corporate law. He was a master of the “art of the deal.” Steve found solutions to his clients’ needs that were comprehensive and innovative. While Steve was not defined by his law career, he was justifiably proud to be a lawyer. He began his career in Dallas at what is now known as Locke Lord and was a partner with Schiff Hardin at the time of his death. Steve grew tremendously in his Catholic faith over the past decade, contributing time and treasure to his parish, St. Patrick. He participated in the parish ACTS community and was an early supporter of Redemptoris Mater Diocesan Missionary Seminary. He was also a member of the Knights of Columbus, Council 799. Steve lived his life with gusto. He was an accomplished cook, a gracious host and an erudite conversationalist. An evening at the Sapps’ is always a grand occasion. Steve and Terry also enjoyed traveling with friends. Steve was a voracious reader across a wide range of subjects, and was always equipped with just the right quote for the occasion: “How shall a sinner, who has formed his character upon unbelief, trusting sight and reason rather than conscience and Scripture, how shall he begin to repent? What must he do? Is it possible he can overcome himself, and make new his heart in the end of his days? It is possible.” –Blessed John Henry Newman. Visitation will begin at 6pm Tuesday, December 15, followed by a Rosary at 7pm at St. Patrick Catholic Church, 9643 Ferndale Road, Dallas, TX 75238. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11 am Wednesday, December 16 at St. Patrick, followed by reception at the Knights of Columbus Hall, 10110 Shoreview Road, Dallas 75238. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the “Knights of Columbus Council 799.” or Redemptoris Mater Seminary.
