About Steven w. short  

On May 27, 2015, our community lost an exceptional young man. Steven was a father, husband, son, brother, and friend. Steven graduated from Waynesboro High School in 2003. After high school, he pursued a career in telecommunications. He was dedicated to his profession as a Product Manager at Lumos Network. He was a family man; he adored his wife and was absolutely smitten with his three children. He had a zest for life. He lived a life full of laughter; he was warm and always had a smile on his face. He never met a stranger. Steven loved sports and played golf whenever he had a chance; he was a University of Virginia fanatic and loved being surrounded by friends and family.

This tournament is a tribute to Steven and a way for his friends and family to come together and play a game that he loved.

In loving memory of Steven W. Short

We are the rememberers, the people left behind, to keep the one who’s gone from us alive in heart and mind, the people left to cherish and preserve a legacy. Yes, we are the rememberers...and we will always be.”
