On January 8, 1998 God blessed us with an angel, Steven Gary Geromin, and allowed him to be with us for 15 years, 1 month and 1 day. He was born on Elvis Presley’s and his brother Paul “PJ” Suchoski’s birthday to Nancy Joy Geromin and Raymond C. Lapollo. Steven was a student of Regional District 17 from pre-K on. He attended Burr School from age 3 to 6 and ACES Village School in North Haven from age 6 to 14 ½. For a brief time he also attended Whitney Hamden High School East. Steven loved school and everything that went with it including Boy Scouts, friends, girls, concerts, field trips, dances, bus rides, pep-rallies, musicals etc… He graduated from ACES Village School in June 2012 and also received his Arrow of Light from Boy Scout Pack 813.
