Stephen was born in Somerville, MA on October 29, 1927 and was a US Army veteran of World War II. A lifelong educator, he retired in 1989 from the Rochester City School District, having spent most of his time at East High and Edison Tech, inspiring the lives of thousands of students in his 30+ years with RCSD.

After retirement, Stephen devoted his time to teaching his grandchildren math, science and history. He and Margaret took the grandkids on many adventures to Boston, San Francisco, Gettysburg and Canada, stopping for every science museum and historical sign along the way.

He loved learning, teaching, reading, gardening, watching Jeopardy with his wife nightly, but most of all, he loved his family.
