native of South Bend, Indiana and yes, he bleeds for Notre Dame.
His grandfather taught there. He rode on the New York
subway for the first time in July of 1965 while on vacation.
His family moved to New Jersey when he was 10, and it was there
that he became immersed in the New York City subway system. My
parents say he forgave them for moving when we started going to
New York on a regular basis.) At 16, they moved once again
to Connecticut, where he finished high school and enrolled at
UConn. (Go Huskies!) His folks came out to Colorado
in 1978 when his father took early retirement from Uniroyal and
put in another 9 years at Gates.
Steve moved out here in September of 1980 after finishing
college (graduating on the very same day that Mount St. Helens
blew up) and after subbing in several school districts, he went
back to night school and got Associates in Electronics
Technology. Steve now works in Boulder, Colorado as a
customer support technician for a mass flowmeter manufacturer.
Once a year every fall, he takes a trip back east to my alma
mater for Homecoming and always stays in New York for a few days
for some serious railfanning.
