Obituary for Thomas Lee Stevens

Thomas Lee "Bobby" Stevens was born in Orangefield, Texas on March 15, 1930 to Nicholas Beauregard Stevens and Robena Vinton Ballou Stevens and went to his Heavenly and Eternal Home to be joined with his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on May 14, 2018 in Conroe, Texas. Bobby suffered a massive and irreversible stroke and he did not suffer in his last days. His children remained by his side in these last days. Being the last surviving family member of his generation, he was preceded in death by his wife of 60 years, Peggy Ann Speer Stevens, his parents and all of his four sisters: Bethel (Ray) Ellisor, Catherine (Bill) Randall, Clariece or Dee (Billy) Stephenson, and Wanda (Harry) Webb. Bobby was also preceded in death by his beloved pet, "Cocoa". Nieces and nephews lost all bets as to who the last survivor would be and are envious of the wonderful big reunion up at heaven's gate. Bobby was survived by his twin children: Ronald Eugene Stevens (Rosie) of Hollywood, FL and Connie Elaine Hernandez (Bert) of Houston. He is also survived by three beautiful grandchildren: Steven Maxwell Stevens, Samantha Grace Stevens, and Emilee Ann Stevens whose names both were the namesake of her grandparents middle names.
Funeral services will be held on Thursday, May 17, at 11:00 am at the McNutt Funeral Home (1703 Porter Rd) and will be laid to rest in the Conroe Memorial Park beside his wife. Visitation will be held on Wednesday, May 16th at the funeral home from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. Pallbearers will be nephews George Speer, Don Ellisor, Mike Rhodes, and Charles Ingram as well as close friends Ronnie Conner, Kyle Roan, Chris Roan, and Robert Drummond. Honorary Pallbearers will be James Lumpkin, Rondel Rogers, Doug Dunaway, Bill Daw, and Gary Daw. The services will be officiated by nephew, Rick Randall.
Bobby can be easily described as a devoted husband, loving and providing father, adoring grandfather, and a fun friend. He grew up and was raised in the Assembly of God Church and was a member of the "Encouragers" Sunday School class at First Baptist Church of Conroe. He graduated from Willis High School where he excelled in team sports. After attending college briefly, Bobby enlisted in the US Air Force where he served during the Korean Conflict in both Long Beach, California and in Anchorage, Alaska. Upon his return home, he met the love of his life, Peggy, and they were married on January 20th, 1955. They were blessed with a surprise set of twins just before the end of their first year of marriage. Few marriages endure up to a golden anniversary but Bobby enjoyed sixty years of marriage with his wife. In their latter years they loved casino trips to both Louisiana and Las Vegas. In Bobby's last two+ years, he recalled those trips and all of their times together while taking care of his chihuahuas. Once Peggy's death relinquished the remote control to him, Bobby's favorite television station was TBN where he became an aficionado of theology and loved the teachings of Robert Morris and others. Of late, Bobby was particularly surprisingly even staying up late and enjoying the NBA playoffs and it now his children's hope that the Rockets take it all in their father's memory.
In life, Bobby was a jack of all trades mastering in the art of construction (even teaching Building Trades to high school students) and in tending a garden. Harvest time was a delight to him and his children and friends will be able to enjoy his last crop of tomatoes that he planted just a few months ago. One role he especially enjoyed in his younger days was serving on the Board of Directors of "Salty's" in Willis, TX.
Finally, Bobby Stevens dearly loved playing with little children was blessed with the gift of gab, jokes, and stories. He will be greatly missed. In lieu of flowers, feel free to send donations to the First Baptist Church of Conroe, TX.
