Robert W. “Even” Stevens Sr., 84 of Newbury Twp. passed away peacefully Thursday, November 9, 2017 at UH Geauga Medical Center. He was born December 19, 1932 in Middlefield to the late Foster and Mildred (Noble) Stevens. Robert was a tree trimer for Nelson Tree Services for many years. He was a party animal in his younger years, enjoyed going to the coffee shop, gardening, watching westerns and wrestling on tv, and listening to country western music. He would take walks to collect cans, he loved eagles (and sometimes looked like one as his wife Erma would say). He loved collecting turquoise jewelry, and always had Arrowheads with him. When he would come across a child he would always have a fifty-cent piece coin to give them.   

He will be sadly missed by his daughters, Melda (Norman) Sukalski of Newbury and Cindy (John) Chambers of Newbury; sons, Robert (Samantha) Stevens Jr of Middlefield and Donald Stevens of Newbury; grandchildren, Elisha (Mike) Schultz, Robert (Summer) Stevens III, Norman (Marissa) Sukalski III, Karisca Chambers, Cassidy Chambers, John Chambers III and Layla Stevens; great grandchildren, Cadence Chambers,  Charlie  Sukalski, and Scarlett Schultz; his sisters, Kathleen Kraegal of Defiance, Linda Exley of Arizona. 

He was preceded in death by his parents; son, John "Fog" Stevens; his wife of 60 years Erma (Dauwalter) Stevens; sister, Donna Laing; brothers, Kenneth, Richard, and Lawrence Stevens
