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

Dear Brian,
Thanks a lot for taking the time to visit Tobias Lagenstein's memorial page. You are right, it is an immense sacrifice those soldiers all make, and it is up to us to assure that they will never be forgotten. Your friend xxx Edda
