Steve graduated from Springfield College and taught Phys. Ed. in Uniondale for 23 years. He also coached football and directed the district's summer instructional swimming program. He was active in the New York State United Teachers
Assoc. and was serving as President of the local teacher's union when he died suddenly on October 11, 1991.

Steve had such good memories from our high school days--the parties at Judd's house, lifeguarding at Lido Beach Hotel, his precious Jaguar car which always had multiple flats at the same time, sneaking into The Townie, Mike, Eddie, Judd, Paul, John and so many other friends.  I know he'll be with us in spirit!

Barbara, thank you for sharing.  I knew Steve starting in Grade School and Boy Scouts.  We didn't move in the same social circles by High School but we always exchanged greetings whenever we met.  He is one that I will greatly miss, as I am sure do you.

Bobbie, thank you so much for your comments about Steve. I personally miss him so much! He and I were so very close all the way through high school and my parents absolutely loved him. We had so much fun together no matter what we did and we were always laughing about something. I know that he will be looking down on everyone at the reunion with that huge smile on his face.

Barbara knows how much my husband and I cared for Steve, and I'm so glad she can read these comments and know how other people valued his friendship as well. We often visited and my fondest memories are of our families being together on his beloved boat. Barbara made the best lunches, our sons played well together and Steve happily took us around L.I. Sound stopping for swimming and exploring the beaches. Wonderful memories for all of us.  He was the nicest man and although he wisely chose Barbara (ignoring my seventh grade crush), I am thankful he continued to be a part of my life.

And there's "another" missed opportunity!... Steve, you wrote some cool stuff in my yearbook, and I do remember you. I'm saddened to realize that you died so young. There are SO many out there who we "your classmates" didn't know, or didn't know well enough... You were a Good Guy Steve!... The world could use more folks like yourself. Fair winds and Happy Sailing............ Roger

Though. Steve and I Were not the closest of friends. However, after sooo many yrs of shared classes/experiences ( 7-12th grades) I am so saddened by his passing. He was a kind spirit to be sure. There should be more likel Steve. He was unique and special : a gentle class act. The world is worse off for his passing, but a better placefor his presence. It saddens me more than most might imagine to learn of his demise. How special we all are.
