Obituary for David A. Stevens

David A. Stevens, Sr., age 72, of Grassy Lick Road, Morehead, passed to be with his Lord and Savior on Saturday, April 14, 2018, at Baptist Health Hospital in Lexington after an extended illness.

He was born August 6, 1945, in Morehead, a son of the late Albert and Nellie Pelfrey Stevens. Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by one brother, Donald Lee Stevens, and one sister, Rena Stevens Clark.

David is survived by his wife of almost 52 years, Regina Caudill Stevens; one daughter, Tracie Stevens McCarty and son-in-law, Bruce McCarty; and one son, David Albert Stevens, Jr., and daughter-in-law, Cami Cooper Stevens, all of Morehead. He was the most loving and devoted grandfather to Callie McCarty and Sophie Stevens, both of Morehead.

He is also survived by three sisters, Thelma Skaggs, Shirley Wells, and Marcie Gosper, all of Morehead, and was the loving proud uncle of 17 nieces, 11 nephews, and their spouses. He also leaves behind many extended relatives and good friends.

David was a United States Air Force Veteran and served as a weapons specialist on the F-4 Phantom at Ramstein Air Base in Germany during the Vietnam War. He was the recipient of the National Defense Service Medal. David retired from the Kentucky Department of Transportation, State Highway Department, where he worked for 32 years. He was a member of Lakeview Community Church. He was a supporting member of the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF), a Kentucky Colonel, and a dedicated member of Morehead American Legion Post 126. He spent one Saturday a month volunteering at the Rowan County Veterans Museum. He loved gardening, riding his granddaughters around on his golf cart and attending all their activities. An avid outdoorsman—he enjoyed golfing, fishing, hunting, and watching birds—and looked forward to traveling to Kentucky Lake every year with both family and friends. He enjoyed having coffee with his buddies at Hardees every morning and singing Karaoke with anyone who liked it as much as he did! He was an artist, a lover of music, life and family, and lived every day for the people he treasured. David will be missed by too many friends and family to count.

Funeral services will be conducted 2 p.m. Thursday, April 19, 2018, at Northcutt & Son Home for Funerals with the Rev. Eddie Dennison and Bill Bolen officiating. Burial will follow at Cranston Cemetery with full military honors by Morehead American Legion Post 126.

Pallbearers: Brian Stevens, Hubert Wriston, Frank Johnson, Frank Clark, Jerry Clark, and Steve Johnson. Honorary pallbearers: Donald Wells, Nathaniel Johnson, and members of Morehead American Legion Post 126.

Visitation is 5 p.m. Wednesday, April 18, 2018, at Northcutt & Son Home for Funerals in Morehead.
