Carl was preceded in death by parents Carl Sr. and Floy Stevenson, and by his stepson Ryan Coleman.
Those left to cherish his memories include his wife of 24 years Jeanette Stevenson of Monroe, LA; son, Michael Stevenson of Amsterdam, the Netherlands; two daughters, Audrey Stevenson and husband Scott Weidner of Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Claire Stevenson and husband David Reijerse of Amsterdam, the Netherlands; one stepdaughter, Kamie Schnuelle and husband Duane of Gardner, Kansas; two sisters, Janet Mathews and husband James of Houston, TX and Anne Cookston and husband William “Cookie” of Monroe, LA; he is also survived by seven grandchildren and a host of extended family and friends.
Carl was a loyal and dedicated son, husband, father, brother and uncle. He loved spending time with his family and was always there to support them. He loved his wife Jeanette and beamed with pride when talking about his children. He was easy-going and charming, and placed a great deal of value on the many friendships he made over the years. He took great pride in his work as a C.P.A. and later as a teacher. He enjoyed music, travel and learning about the world around him. Most of all he loved passing time with the people he cared for.
The family has been touched by the warmth and support provided to Carl and his loved ones by St. Paul’s church and so many in the Monroe and West Monroe community. The family also wishes to thank Landmark Nursing & Rehabilitation Center for their loving care. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to St. Paul’s United Methodist Church.
