'Stephen L. Roach: A Certain Taste in Shoe'

He was very cute. And charming. An athletic six feet, 200 pounds.

But those white Capezios he was wearing had to go.

Isabel Roach didn't change much about her husband, Stephen L. Roach, when they were married 16 years ago. She likes to say that she "polished him up a bit." And she definitely changed his taste in shoes.

They met in Washington. Both were academic interns at the Washington Center, which arranges internships for college students in the public and private sectors. Mr. Roach, a native Bostonian, went to Washington after he graduated from Anselm College in 1986 hoping to meet the woman of his dreams.

That turned out to be Isabel Blanco, who loved everything about him, except those shoes.

Known as Roachie to family and friends, Mr. Roach had a fine taste in red wines. He and his father-in-law, Luis, made their own wines. Mr. Roach, 36, was vice president and director of sales for Cantor Fitzgerald on the 105th floor of 1 World Trade Center. Mackenzie, 9, his youngest child, is funny like her father. Eileen, 10, has his smarts. Stephen Jr., 11, his passion for sports. None, so far, have inherited his taste in shoes.
