Thomas Joseph Stevenson, Sr., 90, passed away on June 19, 2018, in Oklahoma City. He was born on July 13, 1927 to Francis and Mary Stevenson and grew up in the Clifton Heights and Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania area. He proudly served in the Navy during WWII. He met the love of his life, Anne Mary Magdalene Catherine Field Stevenson, and they married in 1951 and spent 61 years together. He spent 42 years working for RCA & GE in the area of electronics and television repair before retiring in 1988. After living in Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania for many years, where they raised their two sons, they moved to Tucson, Arizona in 1994 to be near their grandchildren. They subsequently settled in the Oklahoma City area in 2004. Tom was always active in sports including football and baseball in high school. He was a Boy Scout, achieving the rank of Life Scout, but was unable to finish his Eagle Scout rank due to the onset of WWII.
