On Monday, Feb. 4, 2019, Steve Stevens passed away suddenly of natural causes at his home in Littlefork, Minn. He was 73 years old.
Steve is survived by his beloved wife, Lynn Stevens; and daughters, Traci (Russ) Salzbrun, Stephanie Stevens and Karley (Chad) Mastin.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Alfred and Viola Stevens; and his sister, Christine Stevens.
Steve retired after 24 years of working on the Chicago Northwestern Railroad.
He was a Navy veteran on the USS Chiskaskia, a volunteer firefighter, a devoted fisherman, a hunter and a cherished friend by all.
Steve enjoyed life to the fullest and had a heart big enough to love everyone in it.
Being a father was the proudest accomplishment in his life. If there was ever a moment he could brag about his girls, he would.
Lynn and Steve had a taste for adventure and in the past two years of Lynn retiring, they traveled to Alaska twice, two annual trips to “Beaver Camp” in Arkansas, and most recently the beautiful Caribbean where Steve became a worldwide star by showing off his famous dancing skills.
We will miss the endless belly laughs, the warm hugs and his gentle eyes. Known as “Daddio” and “Pops” by his daughters and their friends, “Funster” by his PT Cruiser gang, and “Big Shooter” by his infamous South Dakota hunting group.
Steve had a lot of nicknames and we can all agree on this — he was the most genuine, caring, loving man we called a friend.
A Celebration of Life service will be conducted at 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9, at Littlefork Lutheran Church, 1210 Sixth Ave., Littlefork.
