Help Bury A Father That Saved His Children

Stephone loved, sacrificed, and did everything for his children. He was their best friend, protector, and always led by example. Stephone was a comedian at heart and could turn any frown into a smile. He was funny just like his father and compassionate just like his mother.
His life was cut short while on a family vacation as he tragically drowned saving his children in Cocoa Beach, FL. Stephone died as a hero. Stephone was a loving father, son, cousin, best friend, co-worker, gamer, awesome cook, and a great teacher.
Any donations that you can give will go towards funeral and burial expenses. The family would like to thank everyone for their continuous prayers and support during this tragic time.
