Steveisms and Other Stories

This page is devoted to Steve Schanzer, my grandfather. He was a very witty man and there are many interesting and amusing stories about him. Granpa Steve survived World War I; while in the Austrian army he was caught and sent to Siberia, and escaped through Novosibirsk to China! In World War II: he avoided the German invasion of France by riding over the Pyrenees on a bicycle! He drove a Mustang until age 89 when he died, 1979 October 4. His marker is in Red Butte Cemetary, Aspen, Colorado.
