Southborough – For Stephen Coldwell, 74, receiving a brain tumor diagnosis in July has done little to slow him down.

Coldwell grew up in Framingham. In 1964, while he was attending the University of Rhode Island, his father purchased 35 acres of land adjacent to the Sudbury Reservoir between Middle Road and Parkerville Road in Southborough. Six family homes have since been built on the land, sharing a mailbox and a common drive.
