On Friday, October 14, 2022, Ben Stevens reportedly passed dead suddenly, according to an online obituary. The deceased’s cause of death, however, was not made public.
Ben Stevens, a former state senator, passed away at age 63. His departure came as a surprise.
The former senator Ted Stevens and his wife Ann had a son named Benjamin Aavan Stevens on March 18, 1959. Ben was a Republican Party member who served as a senator and was elected Senate President. He then served as Governor Mike Dunleavy’s chief of staff, and at the time of his passing, he was employed by ConocoPhillips.
Throughout his life, he has held positions as president of Cook Inlet Tug and Barge and a commercial fisherman. His wife was Elizabeth Stevens.
Ben graduated from Arizona State University with a B.A. in economics and from George Washington University with an M.B.A.
Ben Stevens was the target of a never-ending FBI investigation while he was in office, but he was never found guilty of any of the accusations brought against him.
Former senator Lyda Green expressed her shock at the news: “I am really crushed.” I admired him. He was always welcome in my office, as I was in his, because we got along so well. He was among the members I worked with who understood politics the best. Due to his upbringing in Washington, D.C., he had such an incredible knowledge of history and government. He was quite wise.
Stevens mourned the loss of his mother Ann, who perished in an aircraft crash in 1978. On August 9, 2010, a plane disaster near Dillingham claimed the life of his father.
