   David Simmons “Rooster” Stevens, 65, of 747 Silver Springs Road, Sunbury, NC, died Monday, January 30, 2023 in his home where he was being cared for by his family.

   Rooster was born in the Shadow Lawn section of Virginia Beach, VA on May 30, 1957, and was the son of the late Vernon Edward Stevens, Sr. and Jean Simmons Stevens. A planner and estimator with the Traffic Ops Department for the City of Virginia Beach for 43 years, he was a 26 year member of the Watery Swamp Hunt Club. An avid outdoorsman, he had raised and hunted American Fox Hounds for over 40 years and had many stories to tell of the successful harvests with them.

   Surviving is his wife of 41 years, Carrie Jane Sisson Stevens; his son, Alex David Stevens (wife, Brittney) of Gatesville; his sister, Nancy Stevens White of Virginia Beach; his brother, Vernon Edward “Ted” Stevens, Jr. (wife, Jane) of Richmond, VA; and the absolute “light of his life”, his granddaughter, McKinley Jean Stevens.

   A Celebration of Life Memorial Service will be held Sunday, February 5th, at 2:00 p.m. in the Watery Swamp Hunt Club. Pastors Greg Jernigan and Burt Pearce will officiate the informal gathering. A private interment will be held at a later time. Friends may visit with the family at the residence.
