Obituary

Gary Grant Stevens was born on January 10, 1949 in Beckley, WV to Grant and Alice (Hodge) Stevens. At an early age his family moved to Detroit, Michigan. He attended and graduated from Wilbur Wright High School in 1967. All his life, he was an avid fan of the Detroit Tigers and the Red Wings Hockey teams.
In the mid-80’s he moved to Florida where he enjoyed fishing with his dad. In 1998 he met his wife Catherine and the two were soon married.
In addition to his wife Catherine, he is survived by two daughters: Theresa (Gerald) Watkins and Jessica Cory, 6 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren, sister Shelby Putansu (Ray), brother Don Hodge, brother Ronald Hodge (Barbara), sister Dorothy Sabo, Julia Chandler, the mother of his children, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Since a traumatic brain injury in 2001, Gary enjoyed playing bingo at the local senior center and watching hockey and baseball (Detroit, of course). He and brother-in-law Ray enjoyed eating tacos and drinking Pepsi after getting their monthly haircuts.
Gary was a gentle, kind man and a loyal, loving and forgiving husband. He will be greatly missed, but we will see him on the other side.
A private family funeral service is being held at Berean Baptist Church on Thursday, December 17th at 11:00 a.m.

    To my dear sweet love,
    Your sweet tender disposition made my calling as your wife and caregiver so much easier. You have been such a joy in my life.
    You were patient when I felt overwhelmed and helped me to even laugh at myself at times.
    We had a lot of fun together and a deep love and respect for each other.
    I will always remember you and love you.

    Catherine

    My uncle Gary was a kind man who nurtured my love of sports and fishing. He loved his family and always found joy in any time spent together. Love to my aunt Catherine who cared for him with dedication and devotion. I look forward to the day when we can “Chew the Fat” again.
    Your Nephew Kevin

    Gary was my best friend back in the 1960's here in Michigan. Loved him like a brother. He was instrumental in leading me to Christ in 1967. Will always have fond memories of him. Miss you my friend, but I'm glad you made it home. You won!! Condolences to all of his family. Lance Jackson
