Steve’s Story

Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We've created it to keep friends and family updated about Steve's status. Get started by reading the introduction to our website, My Story.

Visit often to read the latest journal entries, visit the photo gallery, and write us a note in our guestbook.



On Friday, May 27 at 4:30am Steve had a seizure and went into cardiac arrest.  Lisa administered CPR and called 911.  EMS was able to restore Steve's pulse and transported him to UNC Hospitals.  In the ED he was put on an induced hypothermia protocol, which is used to improve neurological outcomes following cardiac events, and he was admitted to the Cardiac ICU.

We don't know why he had the seizure and arrest, as Steve has been completely healthy and has no vices.  This was bizarre and completely unexpected.

I've had a few people ask when and where the memorial service for my dad will be. It is Sat June 6 (not this Saturday but next Saturday) 10 am at Christ United Methodist Church in Chapel Hill, NC (within Southern Village if you are a local). Thank you for all of your support and prayers! Our family is so appreciative.
