We lost a fellow Ironman, training buddy and most of all friend this morning. Steve showed us all how to live life to the fullest while also servicing his community and loving his family. He was a 3-time Ironman and logged many training miles with us over the years.
Several of us had the pleasure of visiting him one last time this past Friday. We shared Ironman stories and even had him wear a hat from our recent Ironman Texas adventure.
Steve’s legacy will live on through all of us as we continue to be blessed by enjoying this sport. The Steve Parker/ALS 5K will continue as a part of his legacy to help families in our community living with ALS. Hold fast to those things that really matter in life and remember our friend as you train and race. We are all better people for having Steve in our lives.
Please pray from Mary Ann, Lauren and Stephanie.
The viewing will be on Monday from 4 till 8 pm at Klaehn's on Wayne Street. The service will be Tuesday at 11 am at Trinity English, on Wayne Street.
