Joanne Bair On the Passing of Tom Stevens

Dr. Stevens, President of the Queens Libertarians, suddenly passed away last week. Below is the statement of his sister, Joanne Bair:

Dear Family and Friends:

As you may know, Thomas Robert Stevens, beloved Brother, Uncle and Friend to many, passed away on the early noon of October 24, 2019. My dear brother and I were together the night before in the hospital and he looked very well and was happy He was talkative and optimistic. I have a beautiful snapshot in my mind of his smile as I waved goodbye unbeknownst that this would be the last time we would say we love each other on this Earth. Tom loved life and people and knowledge. He was so smart. He lived a spirited and enthusiastic life and he truly cared about people. Tom had a great sense of humor and touched so very many lives in such a positive way. I feel desperately lost without him but I know Tom has returned home to God the Father where we pray he enjoys true peace and joy and eternal life with my beautiful parents who I am sure welcomed him and embraced him with open arms. Tom had a big heart and a personable nature and he will never be forgotten. Tom ‘s beautiful memory lives on in all who knew him and all whose lives he touched.

Tom’s service will be held on Friday, November 1st from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Chapey & Sons Funeral Home located at 20 Hicksville Road, Bethpage, NY 11714 (516-731-5600) followed immediately by a Funeral Procession and placement of his coffin at Pinelawn Memorial Park & Garden Mausoleums in Pinelawn, New York. For those who have the time, the family would like to treat you to lunch at Chen’s located at 3056 Hempstead Turnpike, Levittown, New York 11756 (516-520-0888) immediately following the burial.
