Joseph “Skip” Stevens of Hatboro died Wednesday, February 14, 2018 surrounded by his family at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. He was 78.
Skip was the beloved husband of 57 years to Regina (Jean) Connor Stevens.
Born in Kenosha, Wisconsin, he was the son of the late Joseph and Julia Modory Stevens, and brother of the late John “Jack” Stevens of Warwick.
Skip is survived by his children, Lisa Rose of Greensboro, NC, Jeffrey Joseph Stevens and his wife Tami of Chalfont, Jennifer Duffy and her husband Brian of Warrington, and Joseph Todd Stevens and his wife Cheryl of Quakertown.
Skip’s true love was his family. He was most proud of his children and 14 grandchildren, and enjoying life with his beloved Jean. He was also a tremendous fan of the Philadelphia Eagles, celebrating their recent Super Bowl win with his wife and children. In addition to spending time and vacationing with his family, he enjoyed playing golf and travelling.
Skip’s life was also one of serving others. He served in the National Guard, and continued his early career as a Philadelphia Police officer, in which he rose to the rank of Detective in Juveniles, before deciding to start his own business.
Skip spent the majority of his professional career as a service station owner. Through hard work and dedication, he continually built his business, eventually owning Holland Texaco (Holland, PA) from 1982 through 2001. Always having a strong work ethic, after selling the Holland Texaco, Skip continued to work as a Court Reporter until finally enjoying retirement at age 76.
Along with his professional career, Skip served his community as a member of the Feasterville Lions Club, The Masonic Temple of Philadelphia, Knights of Columbus, and the Feasterville Business Association. Because of Skip’s good-natured manner, friends lightheartedly referred to him as the “Unofficial Mayor of Holland”.
Skip never met a stranger and always saw the best in others, coaching and encouraging many he met over the years. Even in his final days, his nurses and doctors remarked what a sweet man he was.
The Stevens family sends its heartfelt thanks to those who cared for Skip at the University of Pennsylvania Vascular Department, Abington Memorial Hospital, and Christ’s Home Rehabilitation Center in Warminster.
Relatives and friends are invited to greet the family from 9:00am until his Funeral Mass 11:00am on Wednesday, February 21st at St. Cyril of Jerusalem Church, 1410 Almshouse Road, Jamison, PA 18929. Skip’s interment will follow at St. John Neumann Cemetery in Chalfont, PA.
