Found this in the local paper........We are looking for local folks who knew Steve McQueen. The actor spent some of the last years of his life in Santa Paula before dying from cancer. Born Terence Steven McQueen on March 24,1930 in Indiana, McQueen died at age 50 on Nov. 7 1980, in Juarez, Mexico, where he was undergoing treatment for lung cancer. An Oscar nominated actor, he was known for his rugged individualism and counterculture sensibility. Around Santa Paula, he was known for his love of motorcycles and airplanes. If you have a memory involving the iconic actor, call Brett Johnson at 805 437-0242, or e-mail [email protected] Please include your name, phone number and where you live.....Just to let everyone know, Santa Paula is a small city here in Ventura County..Its population is around 30,000 now, so back then it had to be less than 10,000...Santa Paula has a airport thats so small it doesn't even has a tower...Pilots love it for that freedom and many learn to fly out of there...Like to see what the local folk say about him....
