Steve Peaslee was born in West Hartford, Conn., and prepared for Princeton at Kingswood.
At Princeton, Steve majored in politics and graduated with honors. He also played soccer all four years and lacrosse as a freshman.
Steve spent his early postgraduation years with A. F. Peaslee, Inc., his father's construction contracting business. He later formed a family business centered around residential construction, real estate, construction consulting, and forestry. In his later years, Steve settled on his farm in Woodstock Valley, Conn., where he was active in growing plants and landscaping.
Always a "doer" he was secretary and then president of the Central Connecticut Alumni Assn., and was a member of the Republican Committee of West Hartford. He was also on the board of the local library and was active in his church. Steve played squash, collected coins and stamps, and was an avid reader.
Above all, Steve was a devoted husband and father. Two of his five children graduated from Princeton. The class offers its deepest sympathy to his wife of 45 years, Pamela, his sons, Clark '73, Stuart, and Bartlett, and his daughters, Kim '78 and Merry.
