Edgebert “E.B” Berry Stevenson, age 93, passed away on Thursday, November 9, 2017. He was born in Iredell County on February 13, 1924, the son of the late Richard B and Mattie Tutterow Stevenson. He was preceded in death by his wife of 68 years, Mary Caroline (Carolyn) Pope Stevenson, on March 19, 2017.
E. B., or Buster, as many called him, attended UNC Chapel Hill where he played Tar Heel basketball until he was drafted and served in the United States Navy. He was a manager with the Hanes Corporation. Buster and Carolyn were heavily involved in the community of Bermuda Run for over 35 years where they were both avid golfers. He was the gentle leader of our small pack, a husband, a father, a grandfather, a great grandfather, friend, seasoned golfer, and HUGE Tar Heel fan. But, his best gift was that of a family man.
His survivors include two sons; Tom Stevenson and his wife, Nancy, of Cornelius, NC (granddaughters; Jaime Stevenson Lane and husband Kevin Lane, Ashely Stevenson West, and Megan Stevenson White and husband Seth), and son Tim Stevenson and his wife, Sherry, of Bermuda Run, NC; ( granddaughters; Sheldon Stevenson Kenworthy and husband Matt Kenworthy, Vicki Wilson Brooks, Shannon Wilson McAllister and husband Scott), and twelve beloved great grandchildren.
A Celebration of Life service will be held at a later date for both Buster and Carolyn Stevenson.
