Steven La Plant

Steven La Plant was a very good friend who passed away on May 25, 2005 after a long and tough fight against lymphoma.  Here are some pictures and stories about his life.

This is a nice photo I found of Steven at Kevin & Suzanne's wedding in 1993.  As time went on, he evolved his look beyond this, with longer hair and a hipper, European fashion sense (thanks to Helle), but this picture really shows Steven in a way I like to remember him:  big smile on his face, open and friendly, doing something nice for his friends.  Thanks for the beer, Steven!

Steven & Helle were married in Denmark in 2002.  This is a photo of the bride and groom with Steven's family that he scanned and sent to me shortly after the wedding.

Note about this domain:  A year or so after Steven died, I was transferring my domains and web hosting to a new provider and saw that Steven's domain,, had expired.  I grabbed it without really knowing why.  Eventually I decided to put up this little memorial, but if any of his family would like it for something else, feel free to let me know.  It can also be found at .
