On the evening of Saturday, April 11th, Thomas S Stevens Sr. passed on from this world. He is survived by his wife Diana, sister Jeanie Hendrie, daughters Jennifer Stevens and Valerie Andres, sons Thomas Stevens Jr. and Joseph Stevens, two grandchildren Madeleine and Luke Andres, and his chihuahua Scooter.
Tom Stevens was a family man and restaurateur. He was sarcastic, witty, and humorously warm hearted. His vibrant laughter and spirit will be remembered by many. No Sunday pasta dinner will be the same, a glass will forever be raised in his honor.
Born in Rochester, N.Y. in August of 1938, and later raised in South Buffalo, Tom began his restaurant career in New York, later acquiring restaurants in Vermont and New Hampshire. Tom loved family time, family dinners, boating, reading, very long baths, playing cards, travel, and the peace & quiet of country life. He will live forever in the memory of those whose lives he touched. Both Thomas Jr. and Joseph have followed in their father's footsteps into the restaurant business, and will forever cherish the knowledge he bequeathed them throughout their lives. Thomas Stevens Sr. will be forever loved and missed.

Dear Stevens family: We were never together often enough but the times we spent together were always joyful. I loved my cousin Tom and all of you, as did my mom, his Aunt Lucy. His love of family and his success was a matter of pride for all of us here in Buffalo. I promise to plant a tree in his honor. It’s a lovely idea. I hope our paths cross sometime in the future! If any of you ever come to Buffalo please email me at as I will plan an extended family gathering and we will celebrate Tom’s life! Be well,
Love to you all,
Michele Coffas DeLuca

Tom was one of the most intelligent men I have known personally. His quick wit and knowledge of history always amazed me. I think he may have read every best seller book before it came to the book store.
Tom was super generous with all his fantastic "toys" and favorite places; whether it be boating, dining at his restaurants, skeet shooting at his beautiful home or just plain enjoying his Italian cuisine at their home.
Brian and I and our children have wonderful memories of spending time with Di and Tom and family. We will miss Tom very much much, especially on Thanksgiving day.
Rest in Peace Tom and thank you for all the memories!
Our thoughts are with you Di, Tommy and Joseph

Tom, my brother in law had the quick wit and grand sense of humor. His deep voice could be heard above the crowd with a great roar of a laugh. He was an entrepreneur and adored his family. My wife Karen and I shared many good times with Tom and Diana when we were dating and later on in life. Thank you for sharing your life with us Tom.

Diana, my dear sister, Thomas Jr and Joseph,
My heart goes out to you every day and night. I so desperately want to be by your side.
Tom always made me laugh. Always. His library was a fascination to me - from Plato to Italian cuisine, to Greek mythology. He was a smartie pants! Di, I'll never forget when we all went to Puerta Vallarta together and climbed the rocky ledge over the Pacific to the place where Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor fell in love and made The Night of the Iguanas many moons ago. Tom was a romantic. May he rest forever in peace in heaven, even though it might be getting a bit crowded up there. Gone...but not forgotten Tom. Sundays won't be the same.
