The body of John Scott Stevens was discovered on August 20, 2022 in his home in Virginia Beach. He died of natural causes in his bed at home, as we can all hope for ourselves. John was born on October 27, 1958 in Marion, Ohio to Jacob Gene and Marilyn Joan Stevens. He was a graduate of Marion Harding High School.
John was an avid photographer, attending sporting events to take pictures that he would print for the subjects at no cost to them! He joined the U.S. Air Force in his mid-20s and served overseas in Germany for several years. After his military service and using the computer hardware and software skills he learned, he parlayed his security clearance into a successful position in the IT field. He became quite the world traveler, installing and upgrading computer systems around the world and working in Bahrain, Germany, Spain, Italy, Japan, and England to name a few.
John’s beloved grandmother Margaret Orton passed in 1992 of simple old age, and his dear mother Marilyn succumbed to Alzheimer’s disease in 2014. His other grandparents passed away decades ago. John is survived by his father Jacob (89), and brother Todd (61) who live in Blacksburg Virginia. John is also survived by numerous cousins: Stevens, Croman, Miley, Harrison, Tucker, and Strunck relatives who mostly live in Marion County Ohio. Additionally, John is survived by close family friends who were non-biological parents and siblings, Gary and Darlene Palm, Pam Palm, and Brian Palm.
John’s remains have been cremated in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Since the family is so dispersed and COVID is still a concern, there will be no service at this time. A Remembrance Service will be planned later in the year. Condolences may be left for the family at www.altmeyerfh.com.
