ROSENQUIST, Stephen Elliot, 36, of Zephyrhills, Fla., lost his life tragically, Tuesday, January 15, 2013 in a bus-bike accident. He was born April 12, 1976 in Worcester, Massachusetts to Vincent and Susen Rosenquist. Stephen spent his teenage years in Atlanta before moving to Florida in his late twenties. He was an avid outdoor adventurer who loved motorcycling, camping, boating, and especially bicycling with his daughter. He was an amazing, devoted father who zealously adored his daughter, 5 year-old Brooke. One of his regrets would be not having lived until she was old enough to learn to ride a dirt-bike. Stephen, an experienced motorcyclist of 20 years was heading home after a casual morning with his cherised friend, Judy Farrow and her children. Family and friends will miss his quirky sense of humor and adventurous spirit. Stephen was very talented and innovative and always had a project underway. He loved bonfires, grilled the world's best ribs and was a movie buff who enjoyed his extensive collection. He was a kid at heart and loved playing with his daughter and step-children. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Robert and Jeanette Henderson; and his paternal grandfather, Frederick Rosenquist. He is survived by his daughter, Hunter Brooke Rosenquist; her mother, Debby; 2 step-children, Ashley and Chandler.
