Steve Gardiner passes away suddenly

We are sad to announce that Steve Gardiner, our merchandise chair and foundation vice president, has passed away. Steve traveled all over the western United States promoting Cal4Wheel, selling merchandise and Jeep tickets, chairing the Win-A-Jeep program, printing endless event programs and taking care of many other responsibilities. He was also the Cal4Wheel Foundation vice president. We are very grateful for his decades of service to the association and would like to offer our deepest condolences to Steve's family and friends.

Steve joined the association in 1997 and was a member of the Desert Dawgs 4WD Club. He became involved as a volunteer right away and always seemed to be there when we needed him. He was the recipient of the Cap Randall award in 2013 and 2017, the Ed Dunkley Medal of Honor in 2015, the Past President's Award in 2015 and he won the membership development award for the South District in 2017.
