Steve Craffen wrote: I can’t believe 40 years have gone by since we graduated! A lot has happened over the years and I’m sure we can all say that. I left engineering in the 1980’s and founded my own investment advisory firm in 1992 (Oakland, NJ). We are fee only and manage client portfolios and provide financial planning services. I’m also on the national board of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (www.NAPFA.org) and was recently nominated to be national chair. I’ve been married to Deborah since 1992 after becoming a widower the year before. Deborah also owns her own business, a Retro Fitness franchise (Retro Fitness of Kenvil). We have a 15 year old daughter, Carly who is attending a Catholic high school. No plans on retiring hopefully for many years. We both love owning and running businesses in fact we hope to continue to grow them. I’m still in touch with some friends from Stevens including Michael Germinario (’77) and Vincent Sacco (’76) in fact I see both of them quite often. We used to see Bill Livanos (’77) until he tragically passed away in 2014. Our remembrances of him were in a previous Indicator class log. We plan on attending our 40th reunion this June in fact even my daughter Carly wants to go (not sure why, we’re just a bunch of old people now).

I appreciate the photos and stories posted! I have been living in Pittsburgh with my wife Barbara since 1996 and have been working as a Staff member of Carnegie Mellon University’s Software Engineering Institute since 2004. I’m sure everyone will enjoy Alumni Weekend 2017!

WOW!! We graduated 40 years ago! Life has been a good ride since. I’ve been blessed with a great wife Lynne, 3 fantastic daughters, 3 son-in-laws and a wonderful happy 2 ½ year old granddaughter. After medical school, I spent 9 years in the Navy, three as a flight surgeon, and got to do some incredible flying, then did an ophthalmology residency at Bethesda. I had the opportunity to do 10 overseas eye surgery projects that opened my eyes to the other half of the world. At age 50, I went back to school doing a fellowship in glaucoma in Boston. Since then I’ve been in private practice in Connecticut. Over the years I have graduated from skiing to snowboarding and from windsurfing to kiteboarding. Best times still have been sailing/skiing with the family and now hours playing in Central Park with my granddaughter. Hope all is well with everyone and looking forward to joining the “Old Guard” someday.
