Stephen, known by most as Tony, was an avid outdoors-man with a big heart. He could often be found doing what he enjoyed most, fishing on a river bank, pier or lake, or in the woods looking for the next buck he could take home. However, what he loved most was a good conversation with those he loved. All who remember him, remember with fondness. He was a man that was quick with encouragement, understanding and a helping hand.
Below is a dedication from his children;
Though years like miles had grown,
caught up in life but with more to say.
We were confident there was more time.
A moment more, an hour, a day.
Time for another talk,
a moment more to spend together.
Life has a way of taking what is important,
leaving you craving more, forever.
Now that all is said and done,
there yet remains one wish.
That I could trade all that I possess,
for just one moment, a moment I could cherish.
His absence leaves a hole in the lives of those who loved him that will not soon be filled.
