Gary James Stevens

Gary James Stevens, 75, passed away Feb. 12, 2017, just days after his birthday. He was born on Feb. 10, 1942 to James C. Stevens and Patricia Younes, one of five children born to them.

Gary spent most of his life commercial fishing after school and college. For years he would bring the "Herring Eggs" into town from Sitka which was a treat for most of the town.

He lost two of his sisters a few years ago and is survived by his two sons: Gary A. Stevens and Mark C. Stevens; brothers Carl Stevens and Walt Stevens; sister Rhonda Black and longtime companion, Linnea Brooks and many nieces and nephews. He loved being a poppa to Brandon and Aliyha Kenfield and Kaylauna and Talon Churchill.

A service will be held March 5 at 2 pm at the Harborlight Church, with a reception following at the Elks Nolan Room.

In lieu of flowers, please donate to your favorite charity.
