Jeffrey T. Stevens, age 60, loving husband, father, son and brother, passed away Wednesday, October 13, 2021, and awaits the resurrection to eternal life in God's family. He was born on September 8, 1961, the third son of Jerry and Shirley Stevens. He married Linda Strelow on March 7, 1987. 

His life was dedicated to his family and church. His family meant everything to him, and he loved them dearly.  He was a deacon in God's church and telling the world of the hope for mankind was his purpose in life. He loved to serve the members of the church.

He was self-employed his whole life and owned several businesses from the age of 17. He was the proud owner of AquaCraft manufacturing pontoon boats. He was an inventor and held a patent. He could do anything he put his mind to. He was a professional baker, and it gave him much pleasure to make his delicious bakery for his family and friends.

He is survived by his wife: Linda, son: Jacob (Dominique) Stevens, daughter: Kelsey Jo Stevens, mother: Shirley Stevens, brother: Brian (Sheryl) Stevens, nephews: Connor and Tyler Stevens, niece: Cheyenne Hancock, great niece: Kristen Jessie, and special daughter: Iris, his little one. He was preceded in death by his father: Jerry M. Stevens and brother: Jerry A. Stevens.

A memorial service will be held at a later date.
