Glamorous, With Grace
Christian Maltby was so handsome that his college friends used him as bait. They would take him to a bar, wait for the girls to flock around him, and then move in to flirt with them. Mr. Maltby was usually too reserved to make any moves of his own. "He was very handsome, but he didn't believe it," said his younger brother, Jason Maltby.
With his dark brown hair, blue eyes and unassuming manner, the elder Mr. Maltby was a reluctant heartthrob who signed with Wilhelmina Models to help pay his way through Fordham. He appeared in Rolling Stone magazine, and on the covers of teenage romance novels. He later became a vice president for currency trading at Cantor Fitzgerald. Mr. Maltby, 37, gravitated toward a quiet life in Chatham, N.J. He spent weekends with his wife, Jane, and their three children, Max, Morgan and Samuel, in the backyard. He was training to be a Sunday school teacher at his church, and liked to read novels that he swapped with his brother. - N Y Times
