Stephen "Papa"" Menard Memorial Reef"

In loving memory of Stephen “Papa” Menard (1961-2020).  A loving family man and a ray of sunshine.  He was a jack of all trades who always had a smile on his face and a joke or two up his sleeve.  He was a staple in our community, helping out whenever needed.  His heart was big!  He was introduced to Mexico City Beach in 2012 and fell in love with it!  Visiting 2-3 times a year, fishing out in the boat or soaking up some rays on the beach.  It was a place he could relax and be stress free.  His motto was “Live life everyday as if it was your last” he did just that!!  This artificial reef is dedicated to a loving husband, father, uncle and Papa!!  You will be missed greatly until we meet again.  Eternally fishing and at peace!!  Love Always, your family!  (The reef consists of 4 Florida Limestone Artificial Reefs and 1 Grouper Reef/Ecosystems unit deployed 31 Mar 2014 under FWC Grant 13129.  Position verified by Bob Cox on 31 May 2020.)
