Jerry Stevens

Jerry D. Stevens Jr.

Jerry D. Stevens Jr, age 69, passed away the morning of Feb. 6, 2023, surrounded by family after a hard battle with cancer.

Jerry was born July 24, 1954, in Ogden, Utah, to Jerry D. Stevens and Elaine Stevenson Stevens. He grew up in Morgan, Utah, where he learned to turn wrenches and enjoyed summers at Como Springs. Jerry had a huge heart disguised by a rough voice and appearance.

Living life on the edge was an understatement when it came to Jerry. He was a true Wayfarer with many adventures in his life. He traveled all over the U.S. for assorted reasons and various jobs. Including his rodeo clown days where he was known as “Backhoe.” He also worked in the coal and soda ash mines along with other jobs. He made many friends along the way, but never as special as his dear friend “Granny” whom he talked about often and loved very much.

The last few years of Jerry’s life were his true purpose though. Jerry finally came home to the farm in Mt. Home, Utah, where he spent those years caring for his parents. He gave time, effort and so much love to his mom and dad in their remaining years. Jerry was a true blessing to them. This is where he also reconnected with the love of his life Anita Carter, whom he provided much love and care for as well.

Jerry is survived by his siblings: Susan (Rex) Wingle, Dennis (Anne) Stevens, Tom (Terrie) Stevens, Tim Stevens, his love, Anita Carter and stepson, Brian Williams and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents Jerry D. Stevens and Elaine Stevens (Stevenson).

The family would like to extend a huge thank you to Canyon Home Health and Hospice for their kindness and help in his last days. CNA, Chris, who made him light up and smile when she walked in. To all or his loving siblings and niece, Kayla, who tirelessly cared for him and saw him through to his next journey.

Funeral services will be held on Saturday, Feb. 11, 2023 at 12 p.m. at the Hullinger Mortuary at 457 E. 300 North, Roosevelt, Utah. A viewing will be held from 11 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.
