Dec. 13, 1938 ó Jan. 16, 2015
Paul Stevens, 76, was born into eternal life with his wife and family at his side on January 16, 2015, at Samaritan Health Center. Paul was born on December 13, 1938, in Bridgeton, New Jersey, and graduated from Salem High School.
He proudly served his country as a Vietnam-era U.S. Army veteran.
Paul has lived in the Oconomowoc area for the last 24 years with his wife Judy. He had spent so many years and miles on the highway, that being at home was his treasure. After retirement he and Judy spent many more years traveling this great country enjoying all of its beauty from the back roads. He always loved to find out what was over the next hill.
His greatest joy in life was being surrounded by his family; he so appreciated their love and the undying bonds made over the years. Paul was a sweet, gentle man and loyal friend to all, especially Bill W.
He is survived by his loving wife, Judy Ann (Opitz Heinrich) Stevens of 22 years. He is further survived by his loving children, Paulette Coley, Duane Stevens and Brenda Renfroe all of Ardmore, Oklahoma; along with his stepchildren, Kathy (Jim) Downs, Suzy (Tom) Viggiano, John (Lori) Hein- rich, Jeannie (Pat) Coughlin, Doug (Renea) Heinrich, Beth (Jack) Loppnow, Chrissy (Eric) Stanger, Shelly (Neil) Fitzgerald, Joe (Janelle) Heinrich, Carolyn (Tom) Arra, and Jen (Will) Szerenyi; 40 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren; one brother, Bob Stevens; two sisters, Nan Stevens and Barbara Thompson; two half-sisters, Sue Stevens and Patti Bacon; brother-in-law Dick Wyckoff; sister-in-law Janet Anthony; two cousins, Jim Stevens and Sandy (John) Blair; and nieces and nephews.
Paul was preceded in death by his parents, Mel and Mary Stevens; his sister Jerry Wyckoff; sister-in- law Jean Stevens; brother- in-law Jim Thompson; and cousin Donald Stevens.
