James Michael Stevens, of Sanford, Florida, passed from this life into eternal life on Holy Tuesday, April 7, 2020 at 2:28 PM.   He was born in Amarillo, Texas on June 19, 1952. He was the son of Ruth Sydenstricker and the late Basil Carol Stevens. He is survived by his wife of 22 years, Pamela Gibbs Stevens.

        Jim served in the U.S. Army and received Pioneer Training.  He was discharged with a National Defense Service Medal.

        He was retired from the State of Florida where he held various positions including Park Ranger at Blue Springs State Park, maintenance for the Department of Agriculture and Orlando Sanford Airport.

        He was a very Godly, compassionate and honorable man and was always willing to give a helping hand to family, friends and strangers.  He loved his Lord and Savior, his Country, his family and friends and witnessing to people about the Bible and his Lord God.

        Jim “Crow” also enjoyed the outdoors and spent his free time walking, fishing, reading, making walking sticks and knives. He was a very resourceful and artistic person.

        Mr. Stevens was baptized into the Baptist faith on Easter Sunday 2009.

        Mr. Stevens leaves behind to mourn his death, celebrate his life, and rejoice in his memory, his beloved son Jimi Lee Stevens, daughter-in-law Lindsay, treasured granddaughter Mia Jade, brother Larry Clark (Dianna), step-son, Luis R. Velazquez V, Aunt Joyce Sydenstricker and many other loving cousins and cherished friends.

        The family will have a Celebration of Life at a later date. 

The family graciously requests any memorial to VITAS Healthcare Hospice, 2201 Lucien Way, Ste. 100, Maitland, FL 32751

    Pam , My condolences. I met Crow a few times and could tell he was a genuine, nice guy. We could probably sit and talk for hours about antiques and American history. He will be missed.

    From the handful of times I got to meet Crow, I could tell he was a kind hearted and joyful man. From the many stories I heard from Pam, I know there was and will be no one else like him.

    To Pam and Luis,
    Our hearts are broken along with you all. Crow was like a grandfather to all of my kids and he always made everyone in my family feel so special. He was such a joy to be around and always had the most interesting stories. He made each and every person feel important and took the time to help anyone out he could. There will never be anyone like him and he will be sorely missed.

    Kim, Tyler, Sophia and Landon

    Jim "Crow" was a delightful neighbor and friend. He always said: "hello" and shared something funny when we saw him walking to the market or at Phil & Holley's having a beer and a chat. We will miss him in the neighborhood and at Holy Cross Episcopal Church on occasion. He was a delightful man.
