We are proud to have placed our first bench in Atlantic Beach, Florida.

Bench 1

This bench was selected for Stephen by his mother, Marilynn, because it was near to their home and also is situated in Johansen Park, named for the owner of Le Chateau Restaurant (now condominiums), Stephen's first employer in the beaches area. Live Every Day... was what father, David F., felt was Stephen's motto and our adopted motto for his memory. Through his working as a waiter at Le Chateau, he learned many things about the culinary arts. It's nice to see that Stephen is honored with this, his first bench, in Johansen Park. Come by and enjoy the pleasant trees and lovely quiet solitude near the beach on any given day. Don't forget to stop by at this bench for a peaceful repose.The Stephen Fund - Bench 1 in Johansen Park, Atlantic Beach, Florida

We are ecstatic to have the opportunity to place our second bench at our Beach Bocce Ball Blast Association Tournament Headquarters in Jacksonville Beach, Florida.

Bench 2

The Stephen Fund - Bench 2 at the Beach Bocce Ball Blast Association Tournament Headquarters

This bench was selected for Stephen by friends of the family or, more like pseudo-family members in the Turners, because it is at our Bocce Ball Beach Blast Association Tournament Headquarters in Jacksonville Beach. Stephen held bocce, and especially All Terrain Bocce, as one of the sacred sports among others including snooker and volleyball. He loved to play and compete in almost anything his bad knees would allow him to handle which excluded anything of a sexual nature. Memories Of You Light Up Our Lives is the inscription and Stephen truly is someone who kept everyone smiling. It's nice to see that Stephen is honored with this, his second bench, in lovely Jacksonville Beach.  Sign up to play in our annual Stephen G. W. Parker Memorial Beach Bocce Blast Tournament and don't forget to enjoy the pleasant beachfront on this bench.
