STEVENSON, JOHN AUGUSTINE,
Our dear Lord realized “Johnny” had finished his work here on earth and called him home on Thursday, November 22, 2018.  At the age of 90 he had fulfilled his duty as a helper, defender and protector of all who crossed his path.
Born in Tecumseh, Ontario on October 2, 1928 he moved to England and as a teenager worked in an Airplane factory during the war.  He returned to Canada where he held several careers including Ambulance Attendant at KW Hospital, Police Officer with the Waterloo Township Police and Attendance Counsellor with the Waterloo County District School Board.
John saved lives, counselled youth, and selflessly assisted family, friends, strangers and anyone in need.  He brought a smile and a laugh to everyone he knew and anyone he came in contact with.  He lived life to the fullest everyday.  His greatest enjoyment was travelling and exploring North America with his beloved wife.    We find comfort knowing he is reunited with his brother and side-kick, Richard.  Heaven get ready for endless laughter and shenanigans!   “Till we Meet Again.”
John will be lovingly missed by his dear wife of 67 years, Beatrice (Dietrich) Stevenson whom he married on September 15, 1951.  He will be forever remembered and adored by his children and grandchildren; Bob & wife Betty Stevenson and their children Mike (Cindy), Mark (Jay), Matt (Abbi); Tom & wife Christine Stevenson and their children Keith, John, Dayna, Glenn, Sarah; Sandra & husband Anthony Wojteczko and their children Shayne (Fran) and Tiara (Zach).  Great-grandfather to Tyler, Eric (Chantal), Brody, Mae, Archer, and great-great-grandfather to Jozlyn and Felicity.  Survived by his sister Alice and his nieces and nephews.  John is predeceased by his parents John (of Leeds England) and Rose (Brady) Stevenson (of Dundee Scotland) and his siblings Gordon, Vera, Margarete and Richard.
Cremation has taken place and a private family service will take place at the Mark Jutzi Funeral Home, New Hamburg.  Interment in St. Agatha Roman Catholic Cemetery.
We cannot express enough gratitude to the Nurses and all staff at Nithview Community Long Term Care for the exemplary care and love shown to John and our family.  The dignity and respect given was second to none.  You are angels here on earth.
As expressions of sympathy, donations to the Alzheimer Society would be greatly appreciated.

Bob and Sandra, saddened to hear of the loss of your father. Enjoyed his visits to McLaren and during his walks by Wilson arena. He was always entertaining, fun to talk with and we always had some laughs. Peace be with you.

At the gates one will be saying “Here’s Johnny”. All will welcome him with open arms and laughter, smiles, and confidence that everything he was and all that he is will not be lost on the all of us he has left behind. My family did not get to enjoy his company near enough, my kids will only know him through our memories. Thank God we have such wonderful memories.

The time to say goodbye always comes too soon, leaving us with our memories.
We cling to the good times and happy memories of all the wonderful things that come to mind. For all of us, there are so many.
He has and always been “Stevenson with a smile on his face.”
Hold tight to that image and be assured he carried that smile with him. He leaves behind a void but we can fill it with all the wonderful memories of times we shared together.
Hugs and blessings and prayers, Verna, Pat and Donna, Linda and Cory
