Stevens II, Garnet L.  
Garnet L. Stevens, II Mr. Garnet L. Stevens, II, 44, of Waynesboro, passed away peacefully at his home, in the arms of his wife, on January 21, 2015. He fought a courageous, 4-year battle with brain cancer. Born May 13, 1970 in Waynesboro, he was the son of Patricia A. (Smith) Edwards (husband, Stephen) of Waynesboro and Garnet L. "Butch" Stevens (wife, Sandy) of Mercersburg. Garnet graduated from Waynesboro Area Senior High School with the class of 1988. He later graduated from Shippensburg University with a Bachelor's Degree in Communications Journalism in 1993 and in 2012 he received his Master of Business Administration from Kaplan University, graduating Summa Cum Laude. He earned his master's degree in the midst of chemotherapy and radiation treatments for his cancer. He and the love of his life and wife of 9 years, Tricia L. (Anthony) Stevens, were married on September 3, 2005 in the Rouzerville United Methodist Church. They met in 1998 while working together at WHAG-TV, Hagerstown. Following his graduation from Shippensburg, Garnet worked as a DJ at Mix95, WIKZ radio from 1993-1995. He is perhaps best remembered in the local area as a longtime sports anchor/director at WHAG-TV, NBC25, Hagerstown, MD. He moved to Los Angeles, CA in 1999 to pursue his dream of stand-up comedy, performing at the infamous Improv and studying with Second City. He also worked for Comedy Central and such shows as "South Park" and "The Man Show." When he moved back to the east coast, he began his work with Kaplan University, Hagerstown, formerly Hagerstown Business College, working in several different roles for the university over twelve years, including admissions representative, high school presenter, business development manager, and most recently as career services manager. He was an active and lifelong member of Rouzerville United Methodist Church, where he was a certified lay speaker and volunteer with the Rouzerville community's annual Summer Vacation Bible School. He was also a volunteer for the American Cancer Society and March of Dimes and was involved as a speaker with the Waynesboro Area Gala Cancer Auction and The American Cancer Society's Relay for Life events in Maryland and Pennsylvania. Garnet wrote a blog about his journey with brain cancer called "Thinking Clearly" which received more than a quarter of a million hits. Garnet enjoyed coaching his son's t-ball team and was a lifelong New York Yankees baseball fan. He was an avid runner and participated in numerous 5K races and half-marathons over his lifetime, including a race inside Yankee Stadium; the event raised funds for cancer research. He had the distinguished honor of being a local torchbearer in the Olympic Torch Relay for the 1996 Atlanta Games. Garnet was featured on Dick Clark and Ed McMahon's "TV's Bloopers and Practical Jokes" after a comical on-air blunder at WHAG-TV. The clip was later replayed on The Oprah Winfrey Show when Dick Clark was her featured guest, and the clip was also replayed during Dick Clark's New Year's Eve program.Garnet and his sister, Amy, were also featured on The Siblings episode of The Martha Stewart Show in 2010. In addition to his parents and wife, he is survived by two sons, William Stevens, age six, and Matthew Stevens, age 11 mos., both at home; one sister, Amy L. Stevens of New York City, NY; his maternal grandmother, Helen L. Smith of Rouzerville; his aunt, Barbara J. Smith of Waynesboro; and numerous extended family members.
