James, Jim, Jimmy, Brother, Dad, Paw Paw, Grandpa, he would answer to any of them as they were one man. James William Stevens was born on August 14, 1963 in Hershey Pennsylvania, the son of Patrick and Elizabeth
Stevens. He has joined his parents, brother Eric Stevens, and friends on August 6, 2019. Still to be remembered by his brothers Mike and Tom Stevens along with many others. In 56 years of his life, he has experienced much: such as gaining another brother Eugene Leonard and marrying his first wife Belinda Kenee. Jim’s children were then welcomed to the world listed oldest to youngest: James Stevens, Konrad Stevens, Susie Stevens, and Pammie Kertulis. His second wife Samantha Cotner-Stevens added a stepson Chaz Bunce and daughter Valiant Cotner-Stevens to make it a half-dozen children he was a father to. Once Jim graduated from Annville Cleona High School, he served 4 years in the Navy and was honorably discharged. As a civilian he worked in various industries: 5 years as a vacuum salesman, 14 years as a car dealer, and 10 years as a cannabis distributor. You can tell Jim was a jack of all trades and it would take a book to mention them all. Jim was good at a lot of things and being human, he had his faults. What he was able to distribute as a businessman provided not only for his family but to others needing help who were well minded. Mentioned by his brother Eugene “He would give the shirt off his back if you were nice enough.” Carrying over to no surprise as any Grandpa does, he sure did spoil those grandchildren: Lilliana, Haley, Hayden, Cameron, Caleb, Tayten, Airamya, Willow, Elizah and Lemon.
