Edward “Ted” Stevens, 82, a 65 year Entiat Valley resident, passed away at the family homestead on Wednesday, June 25, 2014. Ted was born on April 11, 1932, at Bertha, MO to Mae Tate and Roy Stevens. He came to Entiat in 1949, and went to work for Bill Griffith. Later, Ted worked for Zwight Logging and Keokuk. He was owner/operator of Apple Capital Hauling and “Ted Stevens Log Trucking”. He retired from logging to work his ranch and pursue his passion, raising Missouri Fox Trotters. Ted enjoyed being a member of the bowling team in Wenatchee, Entiat Log Cabin Pool Team, “Over the Hill” softball team, and coaching Little League. The family remembers many nights at the Wenatchee Valley Speedway, watching Ted drive #55, a B modified stock car. He passed on his love for horses, hunting and fishing to his children and grandchildren.
