Steven G Price - Father, Webmaster, Bass Player

Millie Acker (mother) and G Gordon Price (father) on their wedding day

My father played banjo, guitar, piano and mandolyn as a youth. Later, he repaired, refurbished and converted pump organs to organs with electric bellows

On July 29, 1953, my mother Millie died an ho r after I was born. I still yearn for the feeling of her embrace and the sound of her voice. I take some comfort in the thoght that the "goodness" inside me is a relection of her and my father

With the help of neighbor Frances Green, my father and grandmother (Monica Price) raised me until the age of 2 1/2, when my father remarried. My second mother's maiden name was Martha Dautrich.

My grandmother Monica then went back to her home in Newington, CT. I was so sad when she left that I gave her my Raggedy Andy doll to keep her company. For the rest of her life, she kept that Raggedy Andy doll sitting upright against at pillow in her bed. I am still in awe of grandma Monica Price's gardens

My father, G Gordon Price, was a bank manager and volunteered as Treasurer on the Gilbert High School Board and on the Economic Development Board for Winsted, CT. He was also a member of Kiwanis.

My grandmothers Monica Price and Martha Dautrich, cousin Joan and her husband Bob Lunden, and grandfather William Dautrich.

I grew up in this cape on Smith Hill Road, just outside the small rural city of Winsted in the township of Winchester Connecticut.

As a boy, we had two fine dogs named Yule and Doc. Doc was my best childhood friend and companion.

I also had a cat named Wilby. She had a litter of four black male kittens. Here are two of them.

I married a "little French girl" (as my father referred to her). We were married for nearly 30 years and had two wonderful daughters, Monica and Martha.

My family and I participated in the Walk for PKD, to raise funds and awareness for Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease research. My cousin Kevin Sullivan, State of Connecticut Lieutenant Governor, gave a proclamation to bring awareness to PKD,

I have two wonderful daughters - Monica and Martha . They both have red hair, like their mother.

I am very proud of my precious girls.

I dressed as Deep Fat Friar at the Renaissance Faire, held at the Lion's Club Hebron Fair grounds in Connecticut. My oldest daughter Monica was dressed as a wizard. I toted the Book of Armaments and the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch and chanted Die Iesu domine, dona eis requiem

We purchased a timeshare in the beautiful Grand Bahamas Island. The water is clear and warm as a bathtub so it is ideal for Monica.

After working 20 years as an I.T. manager at Dutch Point C.U. and as a Team Leader for support technicians at Pfizer in Groton, I went back to school at Manchester Community College to become an Occupational Therapy Assistant .

Ever since I was a boy, I enjoyed woodworking. In my twenties, I enjoyed designing and building high fidelity speakers including a subwoofer (with separate 120 Watt amp and one 15" and two 12" speakers)

I have a particular interest in assistive technology and adaptive equipment. Since 1995, I have been developing rhe Special Needs Family Fun website.
