Michael Stevens

Michael Kenneth Stevens went home to be with his parents, sister, grandparents and our Heavenly Father on Friday, Nov, 13, 2020.

He leaves with love in his heart and soul to carry on his wife Rosa Stevens; children Maria Aron, Argelia Garza, Lucero Burks, Joseph Stevens, Frances Aguilera and Grace Arce; five sons-in-laws; a daughter-in-law; 15 grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren!

Michael was born April 29, 1946, to John W. and Alda Stevens in Hamilton. He had a sister, Carol Stevens.

After graduating from Waco Midway High School in 1964, Michael joined the United States Navy. While serving our country Michel began to see the world. On his journey he made a stop in Vietnam and was honorably discharged in 1968.

After the Navy Michael began a career as a diesel mechanic and truck driver. He was a truck driving man.

On one of his stops in Reynosa, Mexico, he saw the love of his life. She was eating, and when he approached her she grabbed her children and ran home. Being a true Texan, he knew what he wanted and followed her home. After getting to the door he knocked and asked her mother for her hand in marriage. This came from a man who spoke poquito español and a woman who spoke no English.

By jangles, God blessed this marriage, and a year later Miguel and Rosa moved to Mission. True love was being shared and then came additions to the family. Tres. My how time flies.

In 1997 the family moved to North Richland Hills. Life was good.

In 1999, Michael had an accident that resulted in the loss of both of his legs. This accident was a setback for a comeback. Michael continued to love his wife, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Right or wrong, his love for his family never wavered.

Michael will be loved and missed by his family, friends and neighbors.

Always remember, if you ask him how he feels? He will always say, “With my fingers!” Smile.
