Life has been bittersweet.
Met my wife, Esta, on a blind date set up by my mother in 1983. Married since 1984.
Moved to Houston in 1985 and never looked back. Involved in a robbery and was shot on December 22, 2002. The event saved my life as I was also diagnosed with malignant renal cell carcinoma with a massive tumor that had not yet metastisized.
Presently living in an apartment as our home was badly damaged and became uninhabitable from Hurricane Ike last September. Expect to have the house completed, actually totally rebuilt, in February 2010.
We love to travel internationally

School Story:

One of the best times ever was 1969 - 1970 when I worked for Chas. Zimmerman. I felt like Ferris Beuller for an entire year. For those of you who were unaware, I had his rubber stamp, class admit slips and class excuse slips...yes you are welcome guys, especially the baseball team and those wonderful jaunts to Lake Pymatuning.

Many happy memories...sailing every weekend, usually with Don Rolf and Ann Raynes and out on Lake Erie with Tommy Freeman.

Will never forget that I led the Lake Erie League in splinters in 10th grade J V Basketball. Dressed every game and did not play a single second. Accidentally played in college, long story, and who do you think referied my first collegiate game? Yes Fred Heinlen and Art Massey. Surprise, surprise.

Great stories abound but cannot repeat some of them. What we did at Shaker stays at Shaker.

Where were you when Neil Armstrong stepped on the moon? At Baskin-Robbins, defrosting freezers all night long with the crew. Had to find out if we could release the Lunar Cheesecake ice cream the next morning. We tasted it and then marked the cans 'NFG', never to be seen again. BTW, yes, it means no fucking good

Then there was the picture of Joe Rock with a gorilla cookie in his mouth. Not pretty at all and I think that he was trying to impress George Freeman (see Steve Peck's school story on this). I would upload the picture but everything is packed up as our house was badly damaged by Hurricane Ike last September. Move in is Feb, 2010, as we rebuild the entire house.

Classmates You Still See Regularly:

I see Andrea Ascherman Turner and Hugh Lewis. Both live near me. Extremely limited to trips into Cleveland. Houstonians: Jeff Peterman literally disappeared; Laila Voss moved away; Anita Isaacs is now in Galveston; Glen Freiberg moved a couple of times and has been gone for over 20 years. I was very close with Rick Curtiss, who died a number of years ago of cancer.

I stay in touch with a number of you via email. If you want to be added to my joke list, let me know.

Sherry, my sincere condolences to you and your family. Everyone loved Steve. We all knew him as a dear friend even when playing against one another. Steve was a fierce competitor and a wonderful athlete. I am proud to have been fortunate enough to play against him and with him over the years, from Shaker Boys League baseball to high school athletics. I did not get to see him often after graduating from Shaker but I did follow his career at Miami of Ohio and into the NFL. We did email back and forth numerous times in the past four to five years. From all of us at Shaker who had the honor to be part of his life, may he rest in peace and may you and your family find strength in the respect, love, and memories that we had for Steve. Be well.
