Steven Weber drowns during underwater wedding proposal

Steven Weber Jr. may have had a novel idea to propose to his girlfriend on a dream vacation to Tanzania underwater. Tragically, the story ends with Weber drowning and dying.

In a Facebook post, Weber’s girlfriend Kenesha Antoine shared a video showing Weber swimming up to a camera with a note in a plastic bag.

The note read, “I can’t hold my breath long enough to tell you everything I love about you, but everything I love about you I love more every day.” On the other side of the paper, Weber asked Antoine to marry him.

In the video, she says yes as Weber swims away.

Sadly, Weber never makes it and drowned.

The U.S. Department of State has said that they have been made aware of Weber’s death in the East African nation.

The Weber and Antoine had been staying in the Manta Resort on Pemba Island.

Their room included a submerged bedroom showing the ocean, according to Antoine’s Facebook post.

“There are no words adequate enough to honor the beautiful soul that is Steven Weber, Jr. You were a bright light to everyone you encountered,” Antoine wrote in a Facebook post. “You never met a stranger, and you brought so much joy to so many people. You were kind, compassionate, you regularly made me cry with laughter, and you showered me with a love like none I’d ever experienced.”

Antoine wrote on her page, “You never emerged from those depths, so you never got to hear my answer, “Yes! Yes! A million times, yes, I will marry you!!” We never got to embrace and celebrate the beginning of the rest of our lives together, as the best day of our lives turned into the worst, in the cruelest twist of fate imaginable.” Antoine went on to say that during their trip to Tanzania, Weber had told her what a once-in-a-lifetime trip they found themselves on. Antoine said of Weber, “Yes, we were, my perfect love, my angel, my soul. Yes, we were, and I will carry the blessing of the love we shared with me forever.” She added, “I will find you and marry you in the next lifetime, and the next, and the next, and the next… I love you so much, and I always will.”

Weber worked at St. Christopher’s Addiction Wellness Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the city that he also called home. Weber was a graduate of Zachary High School, located just northeast of Baton Rouge. Weber also attended Baton Rouge Community College, Delgado Community College as well as Louisiana State University.
