Robert Bruce Stevens, 63, of Madison, AL. passed away September 1, 2020.
Married to Lamarr, Robert (Bruce as all the family calls him) has seven children, four grandchildren, and three siblings.
Last month, Bruce celebrated his 20 year anniversary with Lamarr Stevens, and just this past weekend they travelled to North Carolina to celebrate the 1st birthday of his youngest granddaughter. Bruce passed away suddenly on Tuesday morning at home.
Bruce’s pride and joy were in his children. His firstborn, Michelle Mader, is married to John Mader and gifted her dad with two daughters, Amelia and Lorelei, in Charlotte, NC. Danielle Sonnefeld has always held a special place in her dad’s heart, making him laugh like no other, and resides in Atlanta, GA. His son Seth Stevens is married to Ashley Oswald Stevens, and is blessed with two daughters Felicity and Lydia. Seth, following in family tradition, joined the military and served for many years with honor. He now works in engineering in Houston, TX. When Bruce married Lamarr, he stepped in to raise the two children she already had and has been their father since their toddler years. Allie Wieczorek lives and works in Madison, AL. Rebekah Wieczorek just recently moved and is now living and working in Charlotte, NC. JoAnne, his youngest daughter, is a sophomore at Auburn University. His youngest child Max, named after Bruce’s uncle and grandfather, is a senior in high school.
Bruce is the eldest child out of his siblings: Kim Stevens Trull, married to Randy, lives in Nashville, TN; Cathy Stevens Muha, married to Mark, resides in Lorretto, TN; and Carl Stevens, married to Britta, resides in Kempner, TX.
Robert’s professional background was as an Army logistician serving in the Army Reserves for 27 years, and senior military analyst with supporting aviation/missile logistics management, supply chain solutions, maintenance support contracts, and information technology solutions.
Robert enjoyed most his children and grandchildren but had a love for all children and worked for years in Children’s Church, teaching deep truths to the little ones and anyone else who was lucky enough to be in the room. He was also a dedicated soldier and hard worker, earning the Legion of Merit medal in 2005.
He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
The funeral will be held at Mt. Zion Baptist Church on Mt. zion Rd in Huntsville at 3:00pm on Friday, September 4, 2020 with visitation at 2:00pm.
