Stephen Novak was truly loved by the entire Blue Water crew. He was part of our family and is missed every day. For those of you who didn’t know Steve, he bartended with us since opening day. If you dined with us, chances are that you were greeted with his warm smile and hospitable conversation. He was also an attorney and loved surfing, traveling, and fly fishing. After a courageous battle with colorectal cancer, Stephen passed away in August 2021.
Stephen would have been 51 years old today. Happy birthday, “Ookla”! Today, we raise our drink to you. You will not be forgotten and we will continue to celebrate the great man you were.
