Arthur W. Stevens

NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. – Arthur W. Stevens died peacefully after a short illness on March 12, 2019, in New Port Richey, Fla., at the age of 94.

Born on July 13, 1924, in Old Town, he grew up in Wilton, then served in the Navy. Later he was called to the ministry and graduated from Bloomfield Seminary.

Art served two congregations in New Jersey then returned with his family to Maine in 1964. As a rural pastor he served several churches, then became a Rehabilitation Counselor for the State of Maine. Retiring in the early 1980’s he soon relocated to Florida where he happily enjoyed the last 20+ years of his life.

As a friend of Bill W’s, Art was grateful for long term sobriety, and known to encourage others to “enjoy the journey”.

He is survived by his children, Bruce and Lottie (Butters), Marie and Mark (Cooper) and Ruth and Peter (Ambrozaitis); eight grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren. His oldest son, Gregory C. Stevens, predeceased him.

A memorial service will be held on April 13, at 2:00 at The Community Congregational Church of New Port Richey, 6533 Circle Blvd., New Port Richey, Fl 34652.
