Steven John Plarr, 62, of Newport News was taken from us too soon by a terrible disease, Frontal Temporal Lobe Dementia on February 1, 2019.  He graduated from Kutztown University and pursued a career in telecommunications as a video editor.  He loved sailing and spending time on the water or at the beach with his family and friends.

He is survived by his parents, Albert and Joan Plarr of Allentown, PA; his loving wife, Becky Ann (Hess) Plarr; mother-in-law, Dorothy Hess of Newport News, VA; his son, Maxwell and his daughter-in-law, Kerstin "Lexy" Plarr of Hampton, VA; his sister, Debbie Schultz of Reading, PA, and many other family members in PA.

A Celebration of Life will be held at Hampton Yacht Club, 4707 Victoria Blvd, Hampton, VA 23669 on Saturday, February 9, 2019 at 11am. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Christopher Newport University Sailing Team in Steven's memory at this url: www.tiny.cc/cnusailing. The family would also like to express their heartfelt gratitude to the staff of Medi Hospice, Berkeley Oaks in Williamsburg, and Dr. Jacob Almeida for all of their support and care.
