Alexander Brandon Stephenson

March 30, 1990 ~ February 8, 2022 (age 31)


Alexander Brandon Stephenson, 31, passed away peacefully at his home in Kensington, Connecticut on February 8th, 2022.  He was born March 30, 1990, in Gelnhausen, Germany and is the beloved son of Eileen Kearney-Stephenson and the late Capt. Adam Brandon Stephenson. 

Alex valued and cherished family and his many lifelong school friends, both students and faculty.  His family would like to thank each one of them for making a difference in his life.  A special thank you to Donna Hunter, his preschool teacher, and Sally Grady his high school social worker, for their patience, guidance and compassion they showed Alex throughout his school years. In addition, we extend a special thanks to his loyal friend, Tara Davis and her daughter, Annabelle (New Britain) for their love, laughs and support over the last few years.

Though Alex was challenged with Autism Spectrum Disorder, his accomplishments were many.  He graduated Berlin High School, attended Lincoln College of New England where he majored in Mortuary Science and participated in the Cosmetology Programs at Maranello Cosmetology School and the Academy Di Cappelli

Alex had a beautiful personality and charm all his own.  His sense of humor was appreciated by all and will live on with his memory.  He also had a very creative side to him.  Alex loved cooking, reading, music, fencing and mastering his talents in Mortuary Science and Cosmetology.  His smile and very presence will be missed!
