Kenneth Wayne “KW” Stevens, 82, of Evansville, passed away at his home on Wednesday, November 11, 2020 surrounded by his family. He was born on January 18, 1938 to the late Frank and Mamie Aline (Howe) Stevens.

My condolences to Wilma and all the rest of the Stevens family.
K. W. will truly be missed by all. And not only was he a longtime business colleague of mine, but he was also a very dear personal friend for many years.

Stevens family,

I’m so sorry to hear of Ken’s passing. He was always such a kind man. Growing up, I remember my mom (Ruthie) and I coming to many of your large family gatherings at your house. It was always so much fun and you all were always so welcoming to us. Thinking and praying for all of you during this difficult time.

Deepest sympathy,
Jennifer Groves Phelps
