Wayne D. Stevens Sr. Obituary

ATHOL- In Loving Memory of Wayne Douglas Stevens Sr.   March 23, 1941 - October 24, 2023   Wayne Douglas Stevens Sr., a man of distinctive quirks and unwavering love, passed away on October 24, 2023, at the age of 82 in Athol, Massachusetts.

Born in Lincoln, New Hampshire, on March 23, 1941, Wayne lived a life that was as unique as it was endearing.   Wayne's idiosyncrasies were a testament to his individuality. He held onto the past, still paying for AOL 30 years after its relevance, all because he cherished his bookmarks. He found joy in the simplicity of driving, eschewing the radio to relish in the soothing sounds of the car. An advocate for the unconventional, Wayne refused to brush his teeth for two decades, hoping for a chance to sport dentures — a wish only partially granted as two teeth obliged. His passions were as diverse as his personality. Wayne had an affinity for dragstrips, the intricate world of model cars, and a penchant for collecting more chihuahuas than he could realistically keep up with. Spam, in its canned glory, made occasional appearances in his culinary repertoire, a testament to his unapologetic tastes.  

Throughout his life, Wayne found unwavering support and companionship in his wife, Nancy, whom he was married to for nearly 62 years. Their enduring love was a source of inspiration for those around them.  

Wayne leaves behind a legacy of love and laughter, survived by his five children, Barbara, Cheryl, Terri-Lynne, Wayne Jr., and Jennifer. His memory lives on through the nine grandchildren and six great-grandchildren, who will forever hold a special place in their hearts for their dear "Poppa."  

In celebrating Wayne's life, we remember a man who lived on his terms, found joy in the peculiarities of existence, and, above all, cherished the simple pleasures of a comfy recliner and reruns of classic TV. May he rest in peace, leaving behind a tapestry of memories that will be cherished by those fortunate enough to have known him.
