John Ray Stevens

John Ray Stevens, age 56 of Albert Lea, passed away on December 18, 2020 at his home.

John was born on June 17, 1964 in Albert Lea to Leonard and Mary (Olson) Stevens. John grew up in Clarks Grove and Albert Lea. He graduated from Albert Lea High School. After high school John attended the Motorcycle Mechanics Institute in Phoenix, Arizona. After graduation he spent 15 years up and down the West Coast working a number of different jobs. He moved back to Albert Lea to help his family. On June 5, 1999 John married the love of his life, Mary Pagel. 

John enjoyed forging metal, fishing, and hunting. He was a member of the Albert Lea Sportsmans Club.  He was also an amazing pool player and a talented artist. In his youth he enjoyed martial arts and everything on wheels. Most of all, John enjoyed spending time with family and friends.

I've known John for roughly 20 years. I've always appreciated his stories, his understanding, his kindness and most of all his wise advice and strength.
I appreciate him being a huge positive part of my kids lives as well as his wonderful wife (Grandma Mary.) Taking the time to help guide his grandson and many others through this life. Heck of a guy gone way too soon. Rest in eternal peace John. You are free from pain and suffering. May you watch over all of your loved ones. You will Never be forgotten.
