I hope I have the right person. I went to high school with Joey Stefanko. I would occasionally run into him after high school, but havent seen him in years. At one point he worked for the parks dept at the dunes and loved to bowl. He always remembered me and I loved our conversations about what he was doing. My heart goes out to his family.
