Obituary

Thomas A. Stevenson, 63, of Bellefonte, passed away at home on Wednesday, November 11, 2020, after a “fight to the end” battle with stage four prostate cancer. Tom was born in Bellefonte on February 18, 1957 to the late Harry and Shirley (Gettig) Stevenson.

Tom was a 1975 graduate of Bellefonte Area High School where he lettered in football and basketball. Tom worked at the Bellefonte Lime Company for 26 years before starting work at Penn State in OPP in 2002. He was a member of the Bellefonte Elks, the Bellefonte Moose, and the Clarence Three Point Sportsman Association.

Tom was an avid sportsman. He loved hunting, fishing, and camping. He enjoyed camping at the Snow Shoe campground for 30 years. He looked forward every year to Grange Fair especially when all of his children and grandchildren came to visit. He adored his grandchildren or “rugrats” as he called them, and Pappy was his favorite name. He was a fan of Penn State football and wrestling, the Dallas Cowboys, and NASCAR racing. He loved the Rolling Stones and had seen them in concert many times. He loved to tinker and could fix just about anything.

Tom is survived by his daughters, Jenafer (Mitch) Shreve of Conneaut Lake; Jessica (Dave) McMillan of Conneautville and son, Jordan (Nicole) Stevenson of Bellefonte; grandchildren Hallee, Brady, and Hudson McMillan; Shayleigh Shreve; and Reid Stevenson. Along with his children and grandchildren, Tom is survived by his companion, Michelle Robison of Bellefonte and her children Katie Miller of Reedsville and Bryce Herman of Bellefonte and granddaughter, Kynleigh Miller. Also surviving is his sister Suzanne (Bob) Davidson of Bellefonte; brother, Dave (Sheila) Stevenson; and two nephews and three great-nephews.

Along with his parents, Tom was predeceased by his grandson, Harrison McMillan on November 3, 2020.

The family would like to thank all of the doctors and nurses that cared for Tom over the past year but especially the UPMC Hospice nurses and aide who kept him comfortable at the end.

Friends will be received on Wednesday, November 18, 2020, from 10am-noon, at Wetzler Funeral Service, Inc., at 206 N. Spring Street, Bellefonte. A Memorial Service will immediately follow at noon at the funeral home with Pastor Terry Daugherty officiating. Following CDC recommendations, social distancing is encouraged, and face coverings will be required at all services.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Tom’s memory to a charity of the donor’s choice.

Michelle, Jen and family--please accept my deepest sympathy on Tom's passing. Cancer may have taken his body but it can't take the love and memories that he shared with all of you. I pray that the love and support of your family and friends will help you through this difficult time.

So sorry for your loss. Tom was one of those folks who made coming to work fun. I appreciated his great sense of humor to go along with his solid work ethic. He is missed here in Steam Services.

We were very SAD to see Tom's passing... I had just talked to him in my PSU building before COVID hit, had a great conversation with him!!! Big hugs going out to the whole Stevenson family and Michelle.

GOD Only Takes The Best
God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around you and whispered “come to me.”
With tearful eyes we watched you, and saw you pass away.
Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.
