Alex Stevenson


PETALUMA, Calif. – The Cal Fire Sonoma-Lake-Napa Unit is saddened to announce the passing of Fire Apparatus Engineer Alex Stevenson.   

Alex passed away on Friday, May 24, 2013. He was a valiant and courageous man whose optimism and hope never wavered as he fought a nine-year battle with brain cancer. He was 39 years old.

Alex began his career with then CDF in 1995 in Sonoma County at the Healdsburg station as a seasonal firefighter.

In 2002, Alex accepted a permanent position as a Firefighter II in south Lake County and in 2004 he promoted to fire apparatus engineer at St. Helena station in Napa County.

Alex’s other assignments included working in the Unit’s Service Center and in 2007 he became a Fire Prevention Specialist II in the Napa County Fire Marshal’s Office.  

He was a true friend and brother to all of those in the Cal Fire family.

Alex passed away peacefully at home with his mother, stepfather, brother and sister-in-law by his side.

A memorial to honor Alex and his service to the citizens of the state of California will be held on Friday, May 31, 2013 at 11 a.m. at the Wells Fargo Center for the Performing Arts in Santa Rosa. The public is welcome to attend.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the American Brain Tumor Association, 8550 W. Bryn Mawr Ave., Suite 550, Chicago, IL 60631; or Hospice of Petaluma, 416 Pavran St., Petaluma, CA 94952.
