Frank Stephens is Darrin Stephens' father. Phyllis Stephens is his wife.

Biography

Frank proposed to Phyllis in Angel Falls and they married in 1925. ("A Nice Little Dinner Party") They have one son, Darrin, who was named after his grandfather (as he was named after his). Frank had just retired before meeting Endora in 1965. Unlike his wife, Frank accepted Darrin's decision to marry Samantha and live their lives the way they want. He has warmly treated Samantha as if she were his daughter, but mostly, he reacts with disdain to Phyllis's delusions and hallucinations, unaware that these events are caused by Samantha's witchcraft. In such cases, he is always telling her to take her medicine or just chiding for her strange comments. He has met Samantha's family several times, and has been very genial toward them, unlike Phyllis who often finds them a bit off. As a grandfather, he is very loving to his grandchildren, Tabitha and Adam. Although they live some distance from Westport, the children stay with them several times.
