The Class of 1969 Celebrate 50 Years - Steve Trutna


After high school, I graduated from the University of Nebraska in Lincoln in 1973 with a

Bachelor of Science degree. I married Phyllis Roberts in 1972 and we have three

children, Scott, Kara, and Leah. After college, I began my apprenticeship to become an

electrician. Upon completion, I moved more into the management of projects which took

us to Wyoming, Iowa, California, Wisconsin, and Colorado. We really liked Colorado

Springs and decided to stay put. We started our contracting business in 1988 and are still

at it. Our oldest son and daughter and their families live close by in Colorado. Sadly, in

2005, our youngest daughter was killed in a motorcycle accident at the age of 21. We

have been blessed with four beautiful grandchildren. We currently reside in Colorado

Springs and we spend June through September at our lake home in Minnesota.
