Sir William Samuel Stephenson CC MC DFC, (23 January 1897 – 31 January 1989) was a Canadian soldier, airman, businessman, inventor, spymaster, and the senior representative of British Security Coordination (BSC) for the entire western hemisphere during World War II. He is best known by his wartime intelligence codename Intrepid. Many people consider him to be one of the real-life inspirations for James Bond. Ian Fleming himself once wrote, "James Bond is a highly romanticized version of a true spy. The real thing is ... William Stephenson."

31 January 1989 (aged 92)

[COLOR="Navy"]Sorry if I've confused the issue John R but the 'Stephen' I was referring to is the 'one and only' Bermudan resident and SN dignitary 'Stephen J Card', who I can assure you is very much alive and kicking/painting. [/COLOR]
