    Dear Barb & family:
    Just heard of Steve’s passing and we are all shocked. He was just a teenager the last time we saw him, but remember him well through the swim club. He certainly did the club proud.
    Our hearts go out to all of you and to his wife, Leslie.
    How quickly a life can be gone!
    Treasure the memories he left behind.
