    My sincere condolences to the Steliotes family on the loss of their beloved patriarch. I was fortunate to know Dean Steliotes since my childhood. His kindness and graciousness was consistent no matter where … on the baseball field, the golf course, and of course, at The Colony. He was a wonderful man who leaves behind an amazing legacy who reflect his strong values. Our prayers are with you.
