Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born and raised in New Jersey. Played played soccer and baseball in high school and invested a great deal of effort into not studying.

Worked in IT for most of my life, including 23 years at the same company where I held a variety of positions from computer operator to systems programmer.

I'm an avid outdoors person who enjoys skiing, backpacking, fishing, canoeing, camping, geocaching and hiking. I also am an avid softball player had have been playing competitively for 30 years.

Among other things I enjoy are playing and coaching soccer, music (punk, Celtic, classical, indie/alternative, folk and some jazz), reading (mostly non fiction), cooking, fine wines and beers and time with friends and family.

I'm also an avocational archaeologist and have participated on a number of excavations in the northeast and mid Atlantic states, including serving 15 years at a dig in NJ where I was a volunteer field instructor.

I devote most of my volunteer time to trail work, where I build and maintain hiking trails in northern NJ and supervise the maintainers in a beautiful state forest.

Married to a wonderful wife and a with the package came a stepdaughter. She's an outstanding student who is in her senior year of college (you can tell my genes aren't involved) and an excellent soccer player who is a member of her college's womens soccer team.

RE: Hey Stop That!
Wellll... as it happens I had taken some photos of that cemetery last summer and never got around to putting them in. When I saw that request come in, the cemetery ran a bell, so I went to go check and there they were. You will notice how green everything looks. :0) I agree with you though. Usually requests sit around for months. I'm glad you are working it though. I'm in northern West Milford so I rarely get down there. Bev

Julia Laroe grave
Thanks for taking the time to look for Julia's grave, even though we can't find her I have a feeling it is probably one that is no longer legible.
Happy Researching
