The Stephen Fund - Bench

Live Every Day . . . is the title of the illustrated biography on Stephen George William Parker, that contains contributions from many family and friends solicited over a two-year period and assembled into 10 chapters by David F. Parker, edited by Margaret (Parker) Vincent, and currently being published by David W. B. Parker. Chapter 9 contains Stephen’s own story of his year-long cancer battle prior to his death on May 9, 2010 (Mothers Day).

We originally planned to sell this book at cost (assumed to be about $20 for a run of 100 copies plus about $5 for shipping), but several people have suggested a Stephen Fund be established to memorialize his name through one or more benches in the Beaches communities that he loved. His parents have proceeded to fund an initial bench in an Atlantic Beach park between his parental home and the beach, named for his first employer, who owned a prestige restaurant on the beach called Le Chateau (since replaced by condominiums). A picture of a similar bench is enclosed with this notice, for which the City of Atlantic Beach charges over $800 (limited to four feet width to discourage vagrant sleepers) – we have yet to confirm costs for other Beaches municipalities. We would like to fund additional benches, each of which is to be inscribed: “Live Every Day . . . Stephen G. W. Parker, 1964-2010.”

Therefore, for those who would like to donate to The Stephen Fund and help perpetuate his name and lifestyle, you may contribute any amount over $25 to The Stephen Fund, and receive a copy of Live Every Day . . . in return (see below). We plan to set the Fund up as not-for-profit under Florida and Federal regulations to permit charitable tax deductions. It is to be administered by Stephen’s Mother, Marilynn C. Parker, who is solely responsible for Fund disbursements.
