Michael Stephenson

August 22, 2020, Michael Stephenson of Waukon, formerly of Dorchester, ended his struggle with lung cancer. With the caring and competent help of Veterans Memorial Hospital staff and those of Crossing Rivers Hospice, Michael’s dying process was eased as much as possible.

Michael grew up in East Cleveland, OH. Family ties, histories and traditions were very important to him.

As a young man, after a year at Kenyon College, he “bummed” around the U.S., getting a feel for our country and its people. This wide view, along with his varied occupations and life experiences, were instrumental in forming his opinions.

Michael was a “cookee” at a lumber camp in Maine, then a timber cruiser for Brown Company. He worked as a hired hand on a small family farm in New Hampshire, hand-milking cows and doing every other chore needed.
