Stephen Carpenter

Posted: July 9th, 2020

STEPHEN CARPENTER, a former deputy circulation manager at MGN, died on June 11 [2020]. He was 94.

After leaving the Navy, Stephen worked for The Times circulation department for more than 20 years. He moved to MGN in March, 1971, and was a regional sales manager until 1976 when he became an MGN field project executive.

He was appointed deputy circulation manager for Reveille and The Sporting Life in 1978 where he served until 1985 and when, under Robert Maxwell’s ownership of the company, Stephen was made redundant – on Christmas Eve.

Stephen was married to Ann. She said: “We had a very happy family home life, moving from Romsey to Camberley for work purposes. Steve was a wonderful and caring stepfather to my children for 47 years.”

In 1986, the Carpenters moved to Devon, and Stephen spent many happy hours on the golf course, becoming Teignmouth’s seniors’ club captain in 1991. He also enjoyed many other interests including sailing, art, and photography, and throughout his life was a keen gardener.
