Default another good guy gone, Dave "Stemen Hot"

I don't think he was a member of OSO or at least one that posted here but today our Lake Erie community and our club LEOPA lost a really good guy. Dave Stemen was just 50, he ran a Fountain called Stemen Hot and was crew chief for Konrad Fountain Of Youth. It was a surprise to all of us as he was healthy and had an awesome day at our fall poker run on Saturday. Early on Monday morning out of the blue he had a brain hemorrhage, he struggled for a while but passed away on Tuesday at 1 PM. His family made the difficult but unselfish decision to donate his organs so his spirt will live on.

Dave was one of the first people Ian and I met when joining LEOPA and as I am sure anyone that met him will agree he had the biggest grin and was always smiling. I always felt he had a chuckle that was just ready to bubble out each time you talked with him. I saw him on the run on Saturday and said a quick hello but since we had friends from outside the club with us we only spoke for a moment, how I wish I had made more time. But as you know it's easy to assume you will have more time with a family member or friend.

Dave you will be missed and remembered by many, may your smile and spirit live on in those you have given the gift of life to. RIP our friend.
Donna and Ian

I received the news yesterday evening from Brian, and it floored me. Dave was truly a great guy and I will miss him and his sense of humor, if Dave was there, something funny was going to happen.
