October 11, 1937 — December 5, 2021


    Irvin Lee Stevenson, the son of James and Mary (Cenek) Stevenson, was born on October 11, 1937, in Cresco, IA. His childhood years were spent in Cresco until the family moved to Spencer when he was 7 years old. Irvin attended Spencer Schools.

     Irvin married Marilyn Campbell on December 28, 1955, in Jackson, MN and to this union four children were born. Irvin worked for the Milwaukee Railroad. He and Marilyn also owned two businesses: Stevenson’s Painting and Stevenson’s Braiding. Irvin worked at the National Box Company in Spencer for 25 years. Irvin  also served lunch at a local elementary school and enjoyed the time he spent parking campers and taking tickets at the Clay County Fair. Irvin volunteered at the Spencer Area Activity Center the past couple years.

    Irvin enjoyed camping, fishing, playing BINGO, gambling, bowling, gardening and bartending at the Woodcliff with Frank. During the summer, you could find him sitting poolside with the grandkids and great grandkids. He rarely missed any event that involved the kids. Nobody was ever a stranger, and all have been welcomed with open arms.
