January 28, 1929 - October 15, 2018 John G. Stephens, acclaimed television producer, whose five-decade career included such classics as The Millionaire, My Three Sons, Family Affair, Gunsmoke, How the West Was Won, Simon & Simon and Major Dad, passed away on October 15th in Thousand Oaks. John was born in New York and moved to California at the age of two. After graduating from Beverly Hills High, he attended USC on a track scholarship and graduated from UCLA with a degree in English. He began his career in 1953 as a story reader, worked his way up to casting director, then producer and eventually executive producer. He later chronicled his career in his book "From My Three Sons to Major Dad My Life as a TV Producer." While working on The Millionaire, he met and later married actress and model Joan Vohs. John and Joan settled in Tarzana, raised two children and were active at St. Nicholas Anglican Church. After Joan's death in 2001, John married Carol Adams and moved to Agoura Hills. John's wit and irrepressible sense of humor, his obsession with sports, the stock market and his beloved dog Blues, were a blessing to all who knew him. The care and love he shared with everyone who crossed his path made him a joy to be around. John is survived by his children, Bill and Laurie, daughter-in-law Mariela, wife Carol, grandchildren Nicholas and Isabella and extended family. All will forever remember him for his smile, his warmth and hospitality and, most of all, that sense of humor. Funeral services will be on Friday November 16th at 10:30, at St. Maximilian Kolbe Catholic Church in Westlake Village.
