October 25, 1938 — February 27, 2024

Stanford L. Stevenson, Jr. ("Stan") died peacefully in his home in Lansdale, Pa. on Tuesday February 27, 2024. He was 85.
 
 He is survived by his daughter Linda S. Ashton (Daniel) his son Stanford L. Stevenson III (Nita), his four grandchildren (Daniella, Andrew, Samantha and Zachary) and many nieces, nephews, grand-nieces and grand-nephews.  He is predeceased by his beloved late wife of fifty-eight (58) years, Eleanor.
 
 He was born on October 25, 1938 as the son of Stanford L. Stevenson Sr. and Helen Stevenson in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and became the youngest of two (2) siblings (Janet Wilson). He graduated from Germantown Academy in 1956 where he played football.  He went on to graduate from the University of Pennsylvania Wharton School of Business in 1960 with a Bachelor of Science degree while also playing football for the weight team.  Shortly thereafter he earned his CPA license while also serving in the U.S. Army reserves. Mr. Stevenson spent the majority of his lifetime residing in Upper Dublin Township, Montgomery County.
 
 After a brief period in public accounting Mr. Stevenson accepted a position with NJM Insurance in West Trenton, New Jersey where he was employed nearly thirty (30) years rising to the position of Executive Vice President.  He was a valued and long-time member of the Board of Directors of NJM Insurance.  Stan was an active volunteer at Jarrettown United Methodist Church and a vocal supporter of the Upper Dublin School District and his children’s pursuits.   He was an avid recreational golfer and with his wife Eleanor, Stan was an active world traveler.   He was a summer resident of Ocean City, New Jersey.  Stan was a long-time season ticketholder of the Philadelphia Eagles and a passionate Philadelphia sports fan, a passion that he both inherited from his parents and passed on to his children.  He would often recount the stories of his beloved 1960 NFL Championship Eagles and his personal favorite Tommy McDonald.
