Tom Stevens Sr.
Yesterday the Bright Fire Department and this community lost a wonderful person. Tom Stevens passed away in his sleep at the age of 59. He leaves behind his wife Debbie, an EMT, 2 sons, Mike and Tom Jr. who have both been involved with the Fire Department, 2 daughters-in-law and 4 Grandchildren whom he loved more than anything.    And though he loved his family first, Tom also loved this community…. Joining the department in 2000, the time he’s given to the Bright area is immense. Training firefighters, planning festival details, educating elementary school kids and giving tours to scout troops are just some of the ways he gave back to the area. Tom handled almost all of the department’s administration duties, wrote grant requests to keep us funded and has helped navigate the course of this department for years to come. His pride came from the outstanding family he and Debbie helped raise, the professionalism this volunteer department shows and the friendly relationships he made in this close knit town.
Funeral services for Tom Stevens will be held at the Bright Christian Church on Thursday, March 20th from 1p-5p. Graveside service will be held immediately following at Gibson Cemetery in Bright. All are welcome to attend. Donations can be made in Tom’s name to the Bright Volunteer Fire Department.
