Thomas Joseph Stevens (T.J.) passed away peacefully at the Maison McCulloch Hospice on November 8, 2018. He is survived by his sister Teresa Bouchard (husband George, predeceased). He also leaves behind 17 nieces and nephews, 29 great nieces and nephews and 12 great-great nieces and nephews. Thomas died on the 50th anniversary of the death of his eldest brother, Robert who passed on Nov. 8, 1968 (wife, Joan predeceased). Also predeceased by his parents, Robert Thomas Stevens and Florence Boucher, brothers William (Aura predeceased) and John, his sister Anne Marie (Don Ripley, predeceased), niece Suzanne, nephew William, great-niece Carmen, and great-nephew Stewart. After graduating from the University of Toronto, Tom dedicated his career to the field of education. He worked for 35 years as the business administrator for the Sudbury Roman Catholic Separate School Board, retiring in 1989. To this day he is still remembered and respected for his dedication, his work ethic and his organizational skills. Although he never married or had children of his own, he found great joy in his extended family. He will always be fondly remembered for the 30th birthday parties he would throw for each of his nieces and nephews. During his long days in the Hospice, looking at videos and pictures of his great-great nieces and nephews were one of the few things that always brought a smile to his face.
