Lindell Dale Stevens

1940 – 2024

Lindell Dale Stevens, 83, of Edmond, OK, passed away on Sunday, May 5, 2024, surrounded by his wife and loved ones. He was born in Wagoner, OK on September 2, 1940, to John and Geneva Stevens.  Over 61 years ago, on December 21, 1962, he married the love of his life–Jean, in Tahlequah.  Together, they had three beautiful children, built a wonderful life, and enjoyed traveling.  He loved playing Poker and after retiring, he placed high enough to win money in the Senior World Series of Poker.  Las Vegas was a favorite destination for him and Jean.  He never missed listening to an OU softball game, and enjoyed watching OU softball and football games with his daughter, Lynn,  grandchildren, and great grandchildren.  He enjoyed a loving relationship with his grandchildren, Pyper and her husband Austin, Morgan, and Blaike.  His great-granddaughters, Rhett and Maverick, were the light of his life.  Nothing made him happier than getting to spend time with Jean and his great-granddaughters.  His family always asked for his “famous tacos”, and he passed down his secret recipe to Austin, whom he considered his grandson. He was always trying to take care of everyone else and brought laughter to any situation.  Jean never had to worry about taking care of anything, because he did an amazing job handling every tank of gas, bill, and worry.  He will be greatly missed, but his memory will live on.

He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Geneva Stevens, and his daughters, Jeaneine and Lise.  He is survived by his wife, Jean Stevens, his daughter Lynn Barrett (Todd), her daughter Morgan, Lise’s daughters Pyper Wood (Austin) and Blaike Finley (Brennan-Fiance), Pyper’s daughters Rhett and Maverick, his sister, Charlene Stevens and her children, his brother Ron Stevens (Paula) and his children, and his uncle, Clay Willis (Argie Lynn). 

In honoring his wishes, there will be no service, as he said, “If they didn’t see me in life, they don’t need to gawk at me in death”.  Play a game of poker or watch an OU game and think of a memory with him.
