Port Everglades director Steve Cernak dies

Port Everglades director Steve Cernak died Saturday after a lengthy battle with cancer, port officials said Monday. He was 63.

Cernak had been coming into work until about two week ago when he started a new treatment, port spokeswoman Ellen Kennedy said.

County Administrator Bertha Henry was at the port Monday morning relaying the news of Cernak’s death, Kennedy said.

Cernak took over as port director in 2012, having previously served as director for the Port of Galveston in Texas.
