Big Lake Township – Jerald Donald Stevens, 40, passed away unexpectedly Thursday, July 22, 2021 after a medical event at work. Jerald was born in Waterville on April 8, 1981, son of Bruce and Ann (Carter) Stevens.
After attending high school in Waterville, Jerald worked as a stern-man on a lobster boat and later as a form carpenter with Coastal Concrete until being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. After two courageous battles with cancer, Jerald returned to work as a carpenter. Jerald loved the outdoors and enjoyed fishing and riding his motorcycle, but most importantly he loved spending time with his children. Jerald was an in-active member of Lewy’s Island Lodge No. 139 A.F. & A.M. in Princeton. Jerald was a free spirit and was able to put a smile on the face of everyone he met.
Jerald was predeceased by his paternal grandparents, Jerald and Muriel Stevens; and his maternal grandparents, Donald and Jacqueline Carter. Surviving are his three children whom he loved dearly, Saria Stevens of Fredericton, NB, Dylan Thompson of Grand Lake Stream, and Alyssa Stevens of Big Lake Township; his parents Bruce and Ann Stevens of Big Lake Township; fiancé Kathy Jordon of Big Lake, Township; grandchildren Brianna & Bryson Chisholm of St. Stephen NB, his sister Jasmine Stevens and fiancé Nicholas Buxton of Waterville; nephew and niece Devon and Zoie Stewart; and numerous cousins and dear friends.
A Celebration of Jerald’s life will be held Saturday July 31, 2021 at the home of his parents in Big Lake Twp after a memorial service at Sunrise Christian Church in Big Lake Twp that will start at 1:00pm. Arrangements by Mays Funeral Home, Calais & Eastport.
