Ronald "Rocky" LeRoy Stevens of Saginaw, Michigan

Beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, January 8, 2023, at his home. He was 66 years old. Ronald LeRoy Stevens, Jr. was born on May 21, 1956, in Saginaw, Michigan, at St. Mary's Hospital to Ronald and Barbara Jean (Barnett) Stevens, Sr. He met the love of his life, Kathy Jo Launstein, while skating at Brockway Roller Rink.

He worked as a Machine Operator at both Saginaw Steering Gear and Delphi Automotive, where he transitioned to a Supervisory role at Nexteer Automotive; retiring in 2020, with over 40 years of loyal and dedicated service. Rocky was a proud member of the Saginaw Field and Stream Gun Club. The role of his lifetime was to be a loving husband, father, and grandfather. He treasured and cherished his family, especially the time he was able to spend with his seven grandchildren. Rocky also enjoyed photography. He will forever be remembered for his hard work ethic, his wonderful sense of humor, for doing all things the "old fashioned" or "old school" way, and for truly living an amazing life filled with many stories and memories.
