Obituary

Gordon Joseph Stevens

August 18, 1930 – January 12, 2021

Gordon Joseph Stevens passed away on January 12, 2021, he was 90 years old. He was preceded in death by his parents, Joseph Armond and Frances Sandifer Stevens, his wife of 56 years, Martha M. Stevens, his sisters, Forence S. Hile, Dora S. Templeton, Valerie S. Davis, and Dorothy S. Pogue, and his brother, Leonard B. Stevens.

He is survived by his children, Lynne Stevens (Kevin McCaffrey), Anne S. Woerner, Joe Stevens, John Stevens, and a special daughter-in-law Lorie Stevens Vines; his grandchildren Joseph Stevens (Pam Johnson), Erin Woerner Campbell, Ricky Woerner (Madison Johnston), Jeffrey Stevens, Jason Stevens, Jacob Stevens and Jaycee Vines; his great-grandchildren, Caleb Stevens, Caden Stevens, Jase Stevens, McKenna Campbell, Kiley Stevens, and Silas Campbell.

Gordon worked for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for almost 40 years and retired in 1990. He took great pride in his work as a draftsman, construction inspector, and cost estimator. He was well known for his quick wit and incredible sense of humor. Everything reminded him of a joke and he was quick to tell it. He was an artist and loved working with wood. Gordon was an avid bird watcher with an almost encyclopedic knowledge of many species.

He was a member of Highland Baptist Church and loved his church family. He believed in the power of prayer and was an avid prayer warrior. To him, family was everything and as a son, husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather, he was

unparalleled. He was so loved and will be sorely missed by everyone whose lives he touched.

Memorials may be made to Highland Baptist Church.
