We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Myers - Somers Funeral Home, Inc.
Mason T. Stevens, 32, of Altoona, died unexpectedly on August 18, 2022
surrounded by his loving family. He was born March 13, 1990, in Altoona,
the son of Mitch and Dawn (Steele) Stevens. He attended Altoona Area
High School and Graduated in 2008, where he was a member of the
baseball team. He was a veteran of the United States Navy and served two
tours of duty aboard the U.S.S. John C. Stennis from 2011-2015. Mason was
a loving father, son, brother, nephew and cousin. His six-year-old son, Paxon,
was his pride and joy. He found his happiness spending time with his son.
He excelled as a father and loved Paxon with everything inside him. To
know Mason was to love him. He was wild and lovable as a child and grew
up to be a soft-spoken man, full of kindness. He would do anything for his
family and the people he loved. At just 32 years old, he had a heart that
held more emotion than most people hold in a lifetime. His death leaves a
major void in the lives of all who love him.
Mason is survived by his son Paxon Stevens (mother, Stephanie Sierra),
parents Mitch and Dawn of Altoona; his sister and best friend Ashley
Adams (Justin) of Altoona; a nephew Elijah Adams and niece, Brielle
Adams, both of Altoona; an Uncle Dr. Kirth Steele (Karen), 2 aunts Kim
Koehle (Jerry), Kathy Kowalski, cousins: Nicole Stotler (Isaiah & London),
Natasha Gainous (Mark, Abram & Annie Grove), Buddy Stotler (Megan,
Laila & Oliver Paul), Sydney Koehle, Mallory Wood (Padric, Lucy &
Margot), Hannah Pine (Bucky, Ellie), Taylor Steele.
He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents John & Nancy
Stevens; his maternal grandparents Dorothy & Don Steele; and great-
grandmother Dorothy Grove.
A Celebration of Mason’s Life will be planned at the Family's discretion.
