The NVYLL lost a friend today. After battling complications from a stroke that he suffered many years ago Dennis Stewart has passed away.
Dennis loved life, loved people and loved coaching. He spent a great deal of his adult life dedicated to teaching the game of lacrosse when there were few people in this area who even knew what lacrosse was all about.
He coached at every level, from youth to High School to being a Division I assistant at Ohio State. He loved this game and the idea that he could help make the players a little smarter, a little more skilled and lived for the opportunity to pass on his knowledge.
He never gave up and he fought to the very end, just like he always preached to his kids on the field. The Lacrosse community will miss him.
