Stephen "Papa" Menard Memorial Reef

DESCRIPTION:
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.)
