Steve Wingert - Memorial Dates

Many of you may remember Steve Wingert, a former member of our ALA Gateway Chapter.  We regret to inform you that Steve lost his battle with pancreatic cancer.  Steve had more than 22 years of legal industry experience, including as the President of the Association of Legal Administrators, and we were fortunate to work alongside him for one of those years here at the Gateway Chapter.  Steve and his husband Mark Bridgeman fought this difficult battle together. As depicted by ALA, they exhibited strength and courage throughout and had many family members (including Steve’s and Mark’s kids and grandkids), friends and ALA cohorts fighting alongside them.  As a tribute to Steve, ALA set up a fundraising page for the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.

We recently received information about events celebrating the life of Steve. The first will be held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, on Saturday, April 27, at the Journeyman Hotel from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. The other will be in College Park, Florida, on Saturday, May 4, at Digress Wine from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. The family is requesting that those planning to attend either the Orlando or Milwaukee service RSVP to ensure enough space is available to accommodate everyone.  Questions regarding the service in Milwaukee can be directed to Clara Onderdonk (585-473-3100). Questions regarding the service in Orlando can be directed to Julie Logan, SPHR, SHRM-SCP (949-271-7347). If you are unable to attend a memorial in person but would still like to show your support, we encourage you to donate to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network in Steve's honor.
