    Traci, I was deeply saddened to hear of Uncle Jr.’s untimely passing. I remember spending many, many summers with you, Uncle Jr., and Aunt Gloria. I often felt as though I was your sister, not your cousin. I will always remember those summers with a smile on my face.
    I know that Dad, Aunt Shirley, and Uncle Jr. are all together. I can almost see them sitting around Aunt Shirley’s kitchen table, drinking coffee and nibling on some tasty treat…laughing at some family story!

    Evora and Jr.’s family: Jr. was my favorite cousin; he spent a summer with our family the year his family moved up to Michgan. His smile and twinkle never changed – it was there in the first pictures I have of him and it was still there in the picture you have shared in his obit. It may have been 15-20 years between the times we had a chance to see each other, but it was always just like yesterday!

    Evora, it is hard when your siblings leave you here almost alone; keep in mind Jr. has gone on to a better place – but wasn’t it wonderful to have had him for a brother all these years?

    Evora, Shirley and Family,

    I’m so sorry for the loss of your dear Art. I grew up across the street from the Stevenson home on Delta County Road 428, rode on the school bus with Evora, babysat for Donny’s kids and have fond memories. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

    There are no words to express the loss of a loved one, but to all of you I send my deepest sympathies and condolences. I knew Art my whole life and felt he was a part of our family. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him and especially the Bucklands and LaFonds. I will miss his smile and his spunk. For many years he has been a part of our lives and his memory will be with me for ever.

    I take comfort in knowing he is at peace and that he is with Obie in Heaven. For all of you, celebrate his life for he meant a whole lot to all that touched his. I am sorry I cannot be there for you but please know I am there in spirit and prayer. God Bless and I miss you all. SAS

    Whenever I think of Uncle Art I can’t help but think of the feeling of excitement I had when my dad would tell us kids that we were going over to Uncle Art’s. We had so much fun going over to his cottage, which later expanded into a beautiful home at the mouth of the Whitefish River. It is where I learned to swim, play horseshoes, and shoot pool… I have so many wonderful memories of being there with Uncle Art, his family, and so of my cousins. I also remember that he made a point to stop by our house in Perkins every time he was driving by. I was not uncommon to see him once a week stop by just to say hello and have a cup of coffee. I can still see him now at our kitchen table will a cigarette in one hand, a coffee cup in the other, and a big smile on his face.

    I will miss you Uncle Art. Make sure you and Dad don’t pull as many pranks up there as you did down here, I would hate to see you get each other in trouble with Saint Peter:)

    To the Stevenson Family,

    We are saddened to learn of Art’s death. We have so many wonderful memories of our visits in Jack’s Restaurant and Wilbee’s market over the years. Art was a real community supporter and did many things in behalf of the greater Rapid River area.

    He will be missed. We cannot be with you to extend our sympathies in person, but know of our best wishes and prayers.

    Hi, Joan, Scott, Sherry, Gary, Traci, and families. I had to write this, as you know I have some wonderful memories of your dad when we were all growing up. From camping at Camp 7, to your house on the corner, then Grandma Oberg’s, then in Rapid River. I’ll tell ya… “those were the days, my friends…” We all know what I’m talking about, and I smile as I write this. I have a place in my heart for all of you. I think about you often when certain things trigger such fond memories. Thanks for it all, my friends. Love,

    Julie (Majestic) Brunette 🙂
