Tony James Stevens, 35, of Moorhead MN, passed away unexpectedly at home on August 1, 2015
Tony was born on January 15, 1980 in Detroit Lakes, MN to Danny Stevens and Bev Wang. He grew up in the Detroit Lakes and Ulen-Hitterdal area, and enjoyed living in the country and all the fun that entailed. Tony had many close friends and family he loved to tease with his jokester personality. He had an amazing smile and could make anyone laugh. He graduated from Ulen-Hitterdal in 1998.
Tony moved to Moorhead in 2005 and began working at American Crystal Sugar. He worked in many different positions there over the years and was currently working as an agricultural mechanic
He met his wife Alisha through a 12 Step program they both attended. They loved each other so very much. They were married on August 14, 2010. They loved to ride on their Harley, go camping with friends and family, and spend time with their two beautiful daughters, Ashlyn (4 1/2) and Ella (2)
Tony was the best Daddy and was very involved with his girl’s lives, from dance class, swimming lessons, gymnastics to bedtime stories and cuddles. His girls idolized him, and loved to be tickled and laugh til they could hardly breathe. Tony would take them four wheeling around the neighborhood and in the country, where the girls would fall asleep in his arms. Tony’s favorite past time was teasing his nieces, nephews, or anyone nearby and making them laugh. He was an amazing friend to everyone he crossed paths with.
