Fair winds and following seas Seapuppy
Just a quick post to remember our good friend Harry "Steve" Stephens who passed last August 18, 2012.
He was born on April 28, 1952 at Ramey Air Force Base in Puerto Rico to Harry and Celia Stephens.
He is survived by his wife, Marsha Stephens of Everett, WA; and sister, Shirley Jennings of Dallas, Texas. Steve worked in the engineering department at Boeing since 1996, and was formerly employed by Newport News Shipbuilding and General Dynamics Electric Boat Company in Virginia, where he participated in the design of several boats including the Seawolf, a nuclear-powered fast attack submarine. He served in the Air Force from 1970 to 1976.
Steve will be remembered for his great sense of humor, quick wit, and love of life. He enjoyed boating in Puget Sound with Marsha, raising beautiful Sheltie dogs, talking about airplanes and sports cars, target shooting, and playing guitar. Steve will be deeply missed by his loving wife and many close friends.
Not only was he a wealth of knowledge on this site, he was an incredible person who I learned a lot from, both in life and boating, in the short time that we were friends.
I am a little late with this post, but I raised a glass to him tonight. I miss that guy!
Fair winds and following seas, my friend.
