Rhonda Brown, Santa Fe, Tx

I would like to express my deepest sorrow for the lost of your dear loved one. The pain, grief and the feelings of helplessness can seem unbearable. At such times, we need to go to Gods word for comfort. Please take your Bible and look at what God promises for the future with regard to our dead loved ones. ( John 5: 28,29, Acts 24:15) Yes, God really will defeat our enemy death forever. This will enable us to one day have the hope of seeing our dear loved ones again. I hope this message will be a source of comfort to you. If you have any questions feel free to contact one of Jehovah's Witnesses or log on to our website at JW.org. Sincerely your, JW

In Memory of Gene Stevenson - One day the wind will take the clouds away. The sun will come up again. One day the sadness will be blowin' in the wind... Expressing my condolences on December 20th to Gene's family members and friends from your friends in Finland.

Merja Silolahti, Helsinki, Finland

I am so sorry for your loss, Lori. I knew Gene as a neighbor who was kind and always congenial even when my cats would leave paw-prints on his car! He was so smart and knowledgeable and had such a devotion to learning, it was truly admirable to see the enthusiasm with which he tackled his most recent degree.

Cynthia, Houston, TX

Lori, We loved Gene and you like family and shared some of life's most wonderful and unique moments in our times and travels together. We want you to know our perspective on Gene in the following lines:  Gene loved life. He lived every day to the fullest, accomplishing more than most of us and loving every minute of it! His interests were wide-ranging, global, cultural, factual, and tangible.  Gene loved to learn. He recently completed all requirements for a M.Sc. in EVD at St. Catherine’s College of Oxford University while carrying on a full-time academic role here, practicing dentistry part-time and finding time to pursue other avocations. My personal association with him was enhanced and expanded by our shared interest in evidence based practices – for me, in medicine; for him in dentistry – and for our concern for understanding patient needs and values so that good decisions could be made jointly with each patient. We shared many discussions about patient informed consent and how to help patients reach decisions that ‘fit’ each one.  Gene loved to teach. He was proud of the accomplishments of his students and reveled in reading numerous essay-type examinations written by each of them, often staying in the office late in the day and going in to work on weekends. His excitement about bringing new concepts of evidence-based dentistry to the field and to his fellow faculty and professional colleagues was contagious.  Gene loved to travel. My husband, Jed, and I were privileged to travel with you and Gene to England, Egypt and Finland – places with which Gene was very familiar. Traveling with you was a custom trip with a private and very knowledgeable tour guide. The insights and experiences we shared have permanently enriched our lives. We are better people because we knew him and you.  Gene loved to relax over a glass of wine and a good meal with us and other friends. You shared our pleasure in attending the Houston Grand Opera for a dozen years as regular subscribers. We also found that going to movies provided a welcome outlet at times. Gene learned to love scotch, as I do, and we managed to work our way through nearly every single malt label available -- mostly from Scotland distilleries, but also some Irish and even English ones.  Gene loved you. You lived as a happily married couple for nearly 32 years, going to and from work together each day, sharing lunch whenever possible, and doing the everyday tasks of life – even getting haircuts – together. Your family was Gene’s family, too. He provided stability and support for your mother when your father, her husband of nearly 60 years, passed away a few years ago and for your sister, Pinta, and her three children as they grew to adulthood.  Gene, we will miss you but you’ll never be forgotten. Lori, you’ll never have to walk alone.

Sazama, Houston, TX

I will miss you! I aint gunna lie to you, after reading some of the notes left here, I got jealous. I thought I was your only son! But I guess that explains what kind of person you were. LOVED BY EVERYONE! 14 years, is how long ago we met! You inspired me AND lifted me up! My mom, every now and then, asks about you and I am not sure what and how I will be telling her the next time she does. You will ALWAYS be in our heart and we will be remembering you many many many times! Thank you for being selfless. Thank you for smiling every time you saw me. Thank you for showing me a better way of living. Thank you for making time to listen to my complaints. Thank you for being my advocate. Thank you for being my friend. Thank you for the great mentor you were and many more. Till we meet again! P.S. Save me a spot in heaven. You may have to lift me up just one more time :)

Kevin Sameti, Houston, TX

My deepest condolences to Lori and the Stevenson family. Gene was a great man and will be missed tremendously.

Hilton Moore, Houston, TX

I am so so sorry to hear of the passing of Dr. Stevenson. He was a great teacher, fabulous dentist, and wonderful person. I will miss seeing his smiling face in the hallways of the dental school. May he know how much he was honored and loved and Rest In Peace.

Carla Rogers, Houston , Tx

On behalf of Stern Empire Dental Laboratory and myself, we would like to share our condolences to Dr. Stevenson's family. He has worked with our lab for over 30 years. Every time he would come into the lab he would bring his kind smile and demeanor with him. When he called he was always so pleasant to work with. He always had a funny story to share with us. He will be missed terribly. Prayers are with you at this time.

Jamey Selby, Cypress, TX

Dr. Stevenson was by far my favorite professor at UTSD. He taught real world prosthodontics all while keeping the mood light. All the dental students were very stressed to pass the year but Dr. Stevenson always had our backs. He was truly a good person who cared about us. He will be missed by all. God Bless.

Tam, Houston, TX

Lori, I extend you and the family my sincere condolences. Although I was familiar with Gene, only through conversation with Pinta, He seemed like a very lovely person. You are truly blessed to have shared wonderful experiences with him. Take care.

Frances Stovall, Houston, TX

Lori, your husband was my practice leader in school from 2000-2001. He was a superior clinician. And he was hilarious. Even now I don't put burr to acrylic without thinking of him. Thank you for loaning him to us! I pray for the peace and comfort that only our Lord can provide in your time of loss.

Steve Banks, DDS, Amarillo, TX

It is sadden to learn Dr. Stevenson passed away. I always remember him as one of the best educator and as a father to his students especially to me. I was in the class of 2003 and Dr. Stevenson was always there for us as practice leader. I will never thank him enough. We will never stop missing you and appreciating all your help during our training at UT dental school. I will not be able to attend the memorial service but I will keep you in my prayers. Rest in peace Dr. Stevenson, a father to me during my dental school and my career. You will be miss dearly. To Mrs. Stevenson and his family, please accept my deepest condolences for the loss - the greatest loss in your family.

Dr. Huan G Vo, Houston, Texas

Heart broken. Please know that my prayers are with your family. He was a wonderful teacher. I will always remember his lectures. He always shared with the class pictures of all the wonderful places he and his family visited. Rest in peace Dr Stevenso. May your soul fly high in heaven above.

Sussan Helmick, DDS, Round Rock , TX

My sincerest condolences to Mrs. Lori Stevenson and all of the family. My prayers go up for all of you.

Mary (Liz) Buitron, Houston, TX

I am so sorry to hear about the loss of Dr. Stevenson. I want to offer my deepest condolences to you and your family. Dr. Stevenson was filled with a passion for teaching and great sincerity for his students. We lost a great educator in dentistry.

J Honnlee, Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, HI

Dr. Stevenson was one of my favorite professors at UT Houston. Most of my denture and removable cases were done with him. He took the time to teach hands on which is a rare thing, and took an interest in what we as students were doing and how we were treating our patients, ensuring that the quality of care our patients received was top notch. He taught me most of what I know of removable restorative procedures and whenever I have a difficult case I often find myself thinking of him and what he would say. I remember working heavily with him as a third year student. After I had completed a try in with one of my patients he noticed that I was finished and pointed to one of my classmates who was having trouble with her own case. He calmly and nonchalantly asked my if I could help her and told my fellow student that "Dr. Shattuck will teach you how to do that." It was the biggest compliment he could have given me, trusting me that I would teach a fellow student as well as he could. I fondly remember time spent in the lab with him working at our tooth set ups, adjusting teeth in wax, and having great conversations. His passing is a loss for the dental profession. He made such a positive impact in the lives of those he taught and by extension the patients all of his students treat today. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time. He was my teacher, colleague, mentor, and friend. He will be missed by all who knew him.

I am so sorry to hear of Gene's premature demise. We exchanged emails the day he passed away.

Gene C. Stevenson, DDS, MPH, MS, passed away on Tuesday, the 29th of November, 2016 at St. Luke's Hospital in Houston, Texas.

He completed his Doctor of Dental Surgery at the University of Southern California School of Dentistry in 1978, Master of Philosophy in History at Somerset University, Ilminster, England in 1988, Master of Science in Dentistry - Prosthodontics at the University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston in 1997, Master of Public Health at the University of Texas School of Public Health at Houston in 2011. At the time of his death, he was an associate professor in the Department of Restorative Dentistry and Prosthodontics at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston School of Dentistry, Houston, TX, where he had been in practice and taught for 24 years. He was an Individual Project Partner of the Collaborating Centre for Values-based Practice in Health and Social Care, the University of Oxford, England. At the time of his passing, he had completed all requirements for an MSc degree in Evidence-based Health Care at the University of Oxford, England, anticipating award of the degree in July of 2017.

Dr. Stevenson was one of my favorite professors at UT Houston. Most of my denture and removable cases were done with him. He took the time to teach hands on which is a rare thing, and took an interest in what we as students were doing and how we were treating our patients, ensuring that the quality of care our patients received was top notch. He taught me most of what I know of removable restorative procedures and whenever I have a difficult case I often find myself thinking of him and what he would say. I remember working heavily with him as a third year student. After I had completed a try in with one of my patients he noticed that I was finished and pointed to one of my classmates who was having trouble with her own case.

I am so saddened by this news. I just saw you at the EBD conference in Denver few weeks ago. I met your lovely wife. We chatted and caught up several times. My deepest condolences to the family. So very sorry of this news.

Gene was such an integral part of the School of Dentistry. We feel the void he has left in our school as well as in our hearts. He was both a great scholar and clinician. He will be missed so much, but he leaves behind a legacy for all of us who love dentistry as he did.

Judy and I share our deepest condolence with Lori and the family. Our students and faculty feel the great loss of a teacher, friend, mentor and kind leader. Words are inadequate to express the depth of sadness.
