In Memory of Stephen K Danton

February 6, 1946

December 16, 2013

We have received word that Steve Danton passed away do to a heart attack this morning.  On behalf of the entire race committee we would like to extend our condolences to the entire Danton family.  If there is anything any of us can do to help in your time of need please let us know.

Steve was a current national steward for Northwest Region SCCA and past flag chief among many other activities in SCCA. He joined SCCA in March of 1982. He was also a Steward for Sovren.

Steve was a big part of our NWR SCCA family and will be sorely missed by all of us.

More information will be posted here when we find out.


We first want to say how thankful we are to all of you for blessing Steve with such fond and wonderful times you all shared with him.  What he enjoyed most in life is you all and his family.  You enriched his giving and joyful spirit by creating amazing memories that made him whole.  You allowed him to be himself and he appreciated each and every one of your friendships.  He celebrated life with you and now its time we must celebrate his.  He would be honored for you to join him for one last festivity featuring big laughs, great stories, a few small lies, burnt tri-tip with baked potatoes, and one last raise of your glass with only the finest of wines.


The hotel accommodations are quite modern and very nice.  We encourage all to stay who would like to celebrate late into the evening in fine Danton style. The hotel has offered the conference room to us till the checkered flag is waved, or the caboose rounds the corner out of site.


He will certainly be missed but never forgotten!

Racing whites, Husky garb, and Hawaiian shirts are not only welcome, but as you know, Steve would encourage J.


Thank you all, we hope to see you there.


For those that feel the desire to contribute to the food, those with last names from A-L can bring a side dish, those with last names M-Z can bring a dessert.  The family will do most of this but some have offered.  Please do not feel obligated.


With the warmest regards,


Medi Danton and the entire Danton family.
