Kenneth “Kenny” Drew Stevens was born on May 28,1969 to Kathleen Stevens & Orville Stevens in Seattle WA. At the age of 2, Kenny & his mother moved to Enumclaw to live with his Grandparents William & Vivian Graff. He grew up & was surrounded by a large family with many aunts, uncles, & cousins. He was known around the area for his 1970 Camaro with the 454 that he built. He loved cars & working on them. Kenny graduated from Enumclaw High School in 1987 & then went off to Universal Technical Institute where he earned an associates degree in automotive. When returning from vocational school, Ken was very ill & was soon diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. He learned how to live with the disease & it never slowed him down. He became a Mazda master tech & worked at various Mazda dealerships until 1998 when he went to work for Thomas Construction as their shop foreman working on heavy equipment. Something that he absolutely loved. He truly could fix anything! He also loved jeeps & jeeping in the woods. He was always working on his jeep or helping someone work on theirs. He was truly happiest behind the wheel of his jeep. He was also an avid fisher & hunter. He was so proud of the huge elk that he shot with his son, Joey. One of his favorite spring past times was to grab his fishing pole & a couple of beers. He loved to fish with his daughter, Taylor & her Barbie fishing pole! And then there was his love of football! Especially the Seahawks! You knew where you could find Kenny during football season-either at the game or watching it on TV. He lived for football season.
In 2010 Kenny went to work for King County as the youngest (at the time) field mechanic. Something that he was incredibly proud of. Again-he could fix ANYTHING. He was the best mechanic around-hands down.
In 2012, Kenny suffered a life altering stroke which left him paralyzed on his right side & wheelchair bound. He fought for many years with numerous health problems after the stroke. He had support & love from his family & many friends during that difficult time. He passed away on December 14, 2021 in his sleep. He is now free from a body & mind that were so damaged after the stroke.
Kenny is survived by his wife Bana, son Joseph Stevens & his wife Kandi, daughter Taylor Stevens & her fiancé Avery, & his grandson Bradley Dailidenas.
