Lewis Richardson

Lewis and his wife Cathi, have lived in Big Canoe/Disharoon Ridge since July of 2012.  They started as weekenders then became full-time in 2015 when Lewis didn’t need to commute to Atlanta daily.  Lewis retired from Turner/CNN after 29 years in IT systems support, consultant/project management and managerial roles.  They appreciate all the activities available inside and outside the Big Canoe gates.  Plus, they love how many friendships they have been able to make here.  They have two children, William and Maddie. Both children love it here as well.

Lewis has been working with the board to maintain the Disharoon Ridge landscaping since 2015.  He has also been helping out with other random tasks around our condos.

Steve Neck

Steve and his wife, Cindy, have been visiting Big Canoe for the past 25 years. Thirteen years ago, they, with their good friends John and Dianne Polak, twisted the arm of Judy and Chuck Phillips hard enough to purchase their condo, unit 419!

Steve has been in the insurance Industry for the past 38 years. He recently retired from State Farm as a Claim Team Manager after 33 years with them. Cindy is a Senior Systems Integration Analyst for Dekalb Medical. They have two daughters, Lindsay, who will be teaching in the fall at Isle of Hope Elementary outside of Savannah, GA, and Hannah, who will be attending the Conservatory of Performing Arts at Point Park University in Pittsburgh, PA. They also have two retired racing Greyhounds, Kellin and Fletcher.

Their love of Big Canoe runs deep as they have also purchased their retirement home in the Equestrian Neighborhood and plan to move to Big Canoe full time within the coming year.
Steve has been involved in previous homeowner’s associations, holding several executive board positions. He will combine his business management experience, prior dealings as a homeowner’s association board member and his affinity for Big Canoe to move the agenda of the Disharoon Ridge Homeowner’s Association forward in a positive and progressive manner.
