    Brad and I were heartbroken to hear the news of Steve’s passing too soon. We live on Lost Lake and were often the recipients of Steve and Cory’s hospitality. We have especially fond memories of Steve grabbing a life jacket and waterski at a moments notice to join us for the annual Lost Lake Mega Ski. His enthusiasm for the lake was contagious and we are a better community because of his contributions. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his entire family.
