Man Dies After Making Underwater Marriage Proposal …

A man has tragically drowned while proposing to his girlfriend underwater during what would have been a dream holiday to cherish for life in Tanzania. Minutes after proposing to the love of his life, Steven Weber held his breath long enough under water, to hear his girlfriend, Kenesha Antoine, excitedly say yes but he never made it out.

Kenesha took to her Facebook account on Friday, September 20, to share clips and photos of their memorable final moments together while confirming his death in a touching tribute.

“There are no words adequate enough to honor the beautiful soul that is Steven Weber,” the post read. “You were kind, compassionate, you regularly made me cry with laughter, and you showered me with love like none I’d ever experienced,” she added.

In the clip, recorded by Kenesha who was on the other side of a glass window at a luxury resort in Tanzania, her ‘perfect love’ can be seen in diving gear with a note in a plastic sealed bag.

“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,” read one side of the letter.

He then flipped it over to reveal the dread question to her.

“Will you please be my wife? Marry me!,” it read.

After he was sure she had read all the contents of the letter, he pulled a box out of his pocket and opened it to display a ring inside before leaving the frame to swim to the water surface.

“Yes! Yes! A million times, yes, I will marry you!!” Kenesha said but her fiancé never surfaced to actually hear the excitement in her voice.

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. 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.

You never emerged from those depths, so you never got to hear my answer, “Yes! Yes! A million times, yes, I will marry you!!” WeSee More

The circumstances surrounding Weber’s death were not immediately known. She said that despite her grief she was thankful for the bucket list experiences they enjoyed on their once-in-a-lifetime trip.

Kenesha expressed, wherever he was now, her late partner was probably entertaining someone with a story about how he royally screwed up that proposal and died while being extra.
