Thaddeus Scott Stevenson was born in Cincinnati, Ohio on July 6, 1965, to Ernest Stevenson and Maxine Stevenson. He departed this earthly life for eternal rest early in the morning on August 8, 2019.
Thaddeus, Thad, Papi, Thaddy, Deo, or Mad Thad, were names he answered to, but he could have answered to dad, son, brother, friend or boo, it depended upon who was calling him. He was all of those to someone.
Thad attended Princeton High School and graduated from Scarlet Oaks Vocational School with a Certificate in Carpentry.
He joined Mt. Zion Baptist Church at the age of 14.
Thad was a kind and sweet person, but you did not want to make him angry. He was loved by everyone that met him and knew him. He was a hard worker and often received recognition for his outstanding job performance.
During his high school days, he and a few of his friends formed a break dancing group where he was known as “Deo”. They won a number of contests. His grandmother and sister were his biggest fans.
He was a member of the Baccaneers Motorcycle Club for 19 years. He answered to “Mad Thad” to his club members. He served as Treasurer and was very active in the club. This club was very special to him; he considered it his second family.
Thad had such a kind and compassionate heart as evident for how he cared for his dear grandmother. He also made sure his mother was never limited as he helped to manage her daily living.
He was preceded in death by his son, Thaddeus Scott Stevenson, II.
