Q How did you end up in Colorado?
T OF T This is where I always wanted
to live. I was here in the early ‘60s on a
family vacation. Even though I was just a
little kid—first or second grade—I fell in
love with the mountains. After I got out
of high school, I left the Chicago area,
where I was born and raised, and I went
to undergraduate and law school in
Lincoln, Nebraska, at the University of
Nebraska. When I finished law school, I
moved here without a job. It took me
about six months to find work. I never
regretted it. It’s a great place to live, and
it’s a wonderful place to practice law.
Q A lot of people move to Colorado for the skiing or the hiking. Are
you into either of those?
T O F T At various times since I’ve
lived here, I’ve done less or more of both.
I skied, not a lot but a bit, when I was
younger and up until our kids were
born. My wife Suzanne and I in the past
hiked quite a bit.
One of the activities that I’ve really
enjoyed out here is bicycling. I rode
quite a bit when I was younger, up until
I had a particularly nasty accident. Then
I didn’t ride for a number of years. But
as our sons got older, they got me back
into it. Our older son and I have done
some of the long-distance rides here
in Colorado—the Courage Classic; the
Triple Bypass, which I was not able to
complete; and the Copper Triangle,
which is a ride that starts and finishes at
Copper Mountain but takes you across
three of the passes up in our mountains.
