Steve Wilson was a Florida native born in the beautiful city of Tallahassee. At a young age his family relocated to SE Florida and that is when Steve’s life-long love of the ocean began. Actually, fishing, boating, diving and the outdoors were in Steve’s DNA as his grandfather Archie in Gainesville had the same passion and he passed that on to Steve and taught him to fish at an early age. Steve was a dare devil and adventurer at heart. If he wasn’t working or spending time with his family you just knew he was out on the boat or preparing for a big fishing or diving adventure. Steve even worked around the ocean and boats all day and he truly loved what he did and he made so many great friends from his job. He always spoke of his fishing trips to the Bahamas and so many other places with his awesome clients. Steve was especially famous for his sense of humor. Steve was an amazing son, father and brother to his family and he was a great friend to all of the those he got to know over his lifetime in the Martin and Palm Beach County area. 

We are so happy to partner with Friends of Our Florida Reefs in Steve’s honor as he cared deeply for nature and anything in, on or near the water. Thank you for any donation you can make via the methods outlined/linked below, and please take time to learn more about FOFR on their website at www.floridareef.org. 

Sincerely,

Steven Wilson (son) and the Wilson Family
