Norman "Skipper" Stevens

October 1, 1934 - October 20, 2022


Norman “Skipper” Stevens passed away peacefully on Oct. 20, 2022 at Jefferson Hospital at the age of 88.

Skipper lived in Port Townsend from 1995 until his death. He was active in the Coast Guard and then the reserves for over 30 years. He taught business at College of Marin in California. He was a Sea Scout Leader on Oahu, Hawaii and then here in Port Townsend for many years. He gave so much of his time to young people, teaching them sailing and general boating skills. Skipper was a co-creator of the Fred Lewis Scout Cabin, a dream come true for many.

In his later years he was a historian and docent at the Jefferson Museum of Art and History.

Skipper had a great sense of humor; he was a kind and loving person.

His beloved wife, Wendy, passed away two years ago.

He is survived by his sister Roberta, his nephews Craig, Keith, Michael, niece Denise and his step-sons Robert, Ken and Bill, and his grandson Robert Emerson.

A celebration of his life will be held at Unity Church; details to come.
