Walter L. Stevens
1912 – 2010
AUBURN — Walter L. Stevens, 97, of Clover Manor, died Monday, Jan. 25.
He was born in Norway, Feb. 3, 1912, the son of the late Walter and Hertha (Hutchins) Stevens. He was educated in Norway schools. He married Constance M. Higgins on June 5, 1937.
He loved the outdoors even at a young age. In his early 20s he traveled the world on a tramp steamer enjoying the vast world around him. He joined the U.S. Navy during World War II, as a Seabee. He worked for many years for CMP as an engineer, at Reynolds Tree Service and retiring in 1974 from the city of Auburn, where he worked as a building inspector for 10 years.
In his later years, he found joy in trout fishing and deer hunting in the Maine wilderness. He also loved to paint, especially white birch trees and old barns. During his year and a half stay at Clover Manor, he made many friends with residents and staff. He gave away more than 40 pieces of his artwork to his friends at Clover, but it was with a twinkle in his eye, that he found most enjoyment in showing his work and telling the stories of how they came to be.
He is survived by a daughter, Donna and husband, Robert Tilton, of Venice, Fla.; nine grandchildren; several great-grandchildren; and one great-great-grandson. He was predeceased by his loving wife of 63 years; two sisters; a daughter and her husband, Arthur and Connie Stevens Fish; and a great-granddaughter, Kaitlyn Jan Fish.
