In Remembrance of Steve Tarpinian

1960 - 2015

Steve Tarpinian took his own life on March 15, 2015. He was a beloved coach, swimmer, entrepreneur, friend and companion. His vision established the landscape for triathlon on Long Island. However, Steve's true legacy is the lives that he positively impacted while on his journey.

To many, it appeared as though Steve “had it all”. We now know, things were not always as they seemed.

When we deny the story, it defines us, when we own the story we can write a brave new ending
