A Tribute to a Generous Volunteer

Published 23/05/2020

We were deeply saddened to hear of the passing of former Regional Treasurer, Stephen Ward, on Wednesday May 6th. Steve was a cornerstone of the committee, along with his wife, Tracey, for many years. Without people like this gentleman there truly would be no shows and no region. Steve gave countless hours behind the scenes, from transporting arenas around the region, to scoring our dressage sheets, to fulfilling the role of Treasurer. Most important of all, he supported Tracey in her love of dressage.

Our Midland & Western region runs on the energy and generosity of a small group of volunteers and so, the committee recognizes the great contribution of time and energy that Steve made, always smiling, encouraging and supporting to all. Many members will have fond memories of him. In this era of COVID-19 it is particularly harrowing to lose a loved one through illness. Steve was laid to rest on Tuesday this week. Our hearts go out to Tracey and their family at this time. May he rest in peace.
