FAIRMONT — Steve James Jevas, 86, of Steubenville, Ohio, West Palm Beach, Fla., and Fairmont, passed from this life Saturday (Aug. 6, 2011) at the Trinity Medical Center West in Steubenville after a long and valiant battle with cancer.

He was born in Fairmont on Sept. 13, 1924, the only son of the late James and Sophia Petrides Jevas.

He was a member of St. Spyridon Greek Orthodox Church (1010 Factory St., Clarksburg, WV 26301) and All Saints Greek Orthodox Church (3528 West St., Weirton, WV 26062). He was also a 50-year lifetime member of the Fraternal Order of Moose Lodge No. 9 and AARP. He retired as an aircraft mechanic from AeroMech Inc. in Clarksburg. He was a veteran of the U.S. Army.

He enjoyed golfing, gardening and spending his winters in West Palm Beach.

Mr. Jevas is survived by a nephew, Nick Giamos and his wife Janice of Weirton; a niece, Connie Giamos and her companion Randy Scott of Wintersville, Ohio; and a great-niece, Nicole Giamos and her companion Nick Capoccia of Worthington, Ohio.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his sisters, Irene Jevas, and Mary D. Giamos and her husband Gust.

Steve’s family has requested that memorial contributions be made in his name to either of his churches or the Tony Teramana Cancer Center, 3204 Johnson Road, Steubenville, OH 43953.

  • Nuke-arms grade stock has been cut by Iran

    Iran has converted three quarters of a nuclear stockpile that it could have turned quickly into weapons-grade uranium into less volatile forms and is well on the way toward transforming the rest, the U.N. atomic agency reported Thursday.
    The development — agreed to by Iran under a nuclear deal it struck late last year with six world powers — leaves Tehran with substantially less of the 20-percent enriched uranium that it would need for a nuclear warhead.
