74, passed away in New York, NY on December 8, 2017 after a brief battle with brain cancer. Stephen considered the world his home, as he traveled to some 40 countries over the course of his career, but later in life London, England, New York City, Vail, CO and Hanover, NH, his primary residence, were his favorite homes. Most of these locales were far-flung from his birth place in Sanford, ME. He first moved on to Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH, where he received his undergraduate degree in 1965 and an MBA from the Amos Tuck School of Business in 1967. Career opportunities with Procter & Gamble, Avon Products, Revlon Cosmetics and Thomas Tilling, among others, launched him into the world of international business, but he ultimately preferred his own path and successfully founded and managed an executive search and management consulting company, Hanover Partners, Inc. of New York and London. After his retirement, Stephen chose to take yet another road and became an author of two books: "Dartmouth's Dedicated Alumni" (2004) and "Passion for Skiing" (2010) and the accompanying film, "Passion for Snow," which garnered an Emmy nomination for Documentary of The Year (2013). Stephen was also very devoted to countless cultural and academic causes in both England and the United States, including: benefactor of Leighton House, Royal Opera House, Tate Gallery and Vail Dance Festival; advisor to Said Business School at Oxford University; alumni leader and fundraiser at Dartmouth College; trustee of the Colorado Ski Museum and trustee emeritus of Hartwick College; and member of the Pilgrims Society, Broad Street Ward Club, American Society of London, Game Creek Club of Vail and the Yale Club of New York City. Stephen is survived by his wife of 50 years, Linda Lenge Waterhouse; his daughter, Melinda Waterhouse, of New York, NY; his son, James Waterhouse, of Alexandria, VA and his wife Desmarie Waterhouse and their children Reese and Huxley Waterhouse; and his niece, Marie Waterhouse, and her family of Los Angeles, CA and Washington, DC. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, the Colorado Ski Museum or the Rauner Special Collections Library at Dartmouth College. A memorial service will be held in Hanover, NH during January 2018.
