On August 16, 2010, Stephen Lee Eschenbach, a longtime resident of the San Francisco Bay Area, peacefully completed this journey and began a new venture.

Stephen is survived by his father, Albert Eschenbach and stepmother of Milton, Pennsylvania, as well as his sister Cathy Davis of Evergreen, Colorado. Stephen is also survived by his caregiver Amy Tavio, as well as a host of friends all around the world.

Stephen enjoyed singing, even teaching his bird to sing "I Left my Heart in San Francisco" among other tunes. Stephen was an alumnus of the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus where he sang as a member of the Second Tenor section of SFGMC from 1996 until 2002.

Steve's spiritual quest took him to Glide United Methodist Church which he attended while living in the Bay Area. Stephen loved to travel, enjoyed the finest foods, and loved his clay-throwing.

Stephen's pool parties are legendary among his friends. Stephen provided emotional support to those around him dealing with life threatening illnesses. He helped to teach his friends to accept who they are and enjoy each day of life.

A celebration of Stephen's life will be held on Saturday, October 16, 10 a.m. at the open outdoor amphitheater at Crissy Field.
