My Education:Joined the USCG after high school. Got to see and visit most every island
in the N Pacific. Got out after 4 yrs and went to St Pete JC in electronics. Two yrs later,
was hired by BellSouth (Southern Bell) and moved to Jacksonville. While working and
raising a family, earned a BS and MBA from Nova Southeastern University.
My Career:I recently retired from BellSouth as Vice President/General Mgr of Florida
Operations with 33 years of employment. I was very fortunate in my career with
BellSouth. Great company to work for and made my retirement decision quite easy.
How I spend my free time:It's amazing how much there is to do after retirement. I have
a home on the St Johns River so naturally I spend a lot of time fishing and boating. I also
enjoy home remodeling and now that I have time, I've been very busy around the house.
After 33 yrs of a torrid pace, I am enjoying the rest period.

My Education:After MHS, I attended MJC for a while and then went into the Navy. I
finished my AA degree while on active duty. After retiring from the Navy, I earned my
BS and MEd.
My Career:I spent 20 years in the Navy as a cryptologic technician, retiring in '87 as a
Chief Petty Officer. I deployed several times on submarines during my first tour in Japan,
was then stationed on the island of Cyprus, Homstead Florida, Spain, and then Japan
again. My last tour was here in Pensacola, where I was an instructor and curriculum
manager in the Navy's cryptologic school. Since the Navy, I worked for several
companies that develop training courses, mostly for Department of Defense agencies.
How I spend my free time:Work? At the end of March 2010 I joined the ranks of the
life-of-leisure folks and most of my time is now "spare" time. Yep, I retired. I had been
putting off a bunch of house and yard projects until I retired - now I have no more
excuses - the projects have to get done and seem to take up a lot of my time. I do
managage to get in a few rounds of golf. Funny, even playing more golf hasn't improved
my game very much. So my scores are not the result of a lack of play but a lack of any
significant talent. I hope to now spend more time with our granddaugther and her mom
and dad.

My Career:After college, I moved to Miami where I worked for the University of Miami
as a secretary for an eye testing program in the schools, funded by the federal govt. I soon
learned how to do the testing & worked there for about 2 yrs. After getting married, we
moved to Naples, FL where I worked for an ophthalmologist. Then we moved to
Bradenton & worked for 2 ophthalmologists there for about 2 yrs. We decided to do some
traveling, so we went to Tenn. to help a friend with his farm for awhile. While we were
there, I got a job at a shoe factory, since there wasn't much choice of jobs, & my family
got a big kick out of that! Then we traveled out west & stayed in Phoenix for awhile &
proceeded to San Franciso for my husband to attend the San Franciso Art Institute. I
worked for some ophthalmologists there for about 4 years & decided to move back to
Florida where we felt more comfortable with our surroundings & weather. We found a
house to purchase on an island that we fell in love with & we have been here ever since. I
stopped working for about 7 yrs. so that we could have children & stay at home with
them before going to school. By that time I was ready to go back to work. I have been
working for 2 ophthalmologists in Spring Hill for almost 20 yrs. & plan to stay there until
I retire. I have now retired, since March 2010, & I am enjoying my leisure time &
working on projects around our house.

                 celebrating our 35th anniversary this year. Kip is an architect, working
                 with Jerry Zoller in Bradenton. We have two sons. Brett lives in

                   Spouse:Married to Susan for 34+ years with 4 children.
                   Personal:I was dating several girls, and one (a mutual
                   friend) thought Susan and I would be a good match. I
put the suggestion on hold, needing to also do a little studying. However, after seeing her
at a fraternity party, there was room for one more. The others quickly fell to the side
since good looking, sweet Georgia peaches are hard to resist. We married after Susan
finished Emory University, and she taught elementary school and helped put me through
graduate school. I returned the favor while she got a Masters in Library Science from
George Peabody / Vanderbilt. Susan was the elementary librarian at a very large private
school, and is now retired. We have two sons - Clay is 35, went to LSU and then the
University of Georgia for a law degree. He does energy / regulatory work and likes
courtroom battles. Our son Alan is 33, attended Tulane undergraduate, and has a PhD in
Biomedical Engineering from Johns Hopkins. He is a consultant with the Boston
Consulting Group for the pharmaceutical industry and works loooong hours. Fortunately,
his wife Tricia keeps his life on track and is a great mother to their smart, good looking
son Ian. Tricia is an anesthesiologist. We also have two 4-legged children. Daisy is a
miniature blue dapple dachsund with one blue and one brown eye, and Goby-san is a laid
back Shih Tzu.
My Education:Bachelor's in Chemical Engineering from Georgia Tech (co-op work
experience saved me from being a PhD research chemist). Master's in Chemical
Engineering and MBA from University of Florida in 1972.
My Career:Captain, U.S. Army Chemical Corps (nuclear, biological and chemical
warfare - defense, of course). DuPont Spunbonded R&D and manufacturing in Nashville,
Tennessee. Specialized in new product development and market evaluation, and higher
speed processes.Exxon Chemical in Houston: Global demulsifier technology lead for
industrial uses; provided sales support. Head of plant and project engineering. Moved to
Baton Rouge as Regional Sales Manager for specialty chemicals used by oil refineries
and petrochemical plants. My reps covered eastern U.S. and Canada, and all of the
Caribbean (those week-long business trips were tough!). Now responsible for energy
needs of several ExxonMobil refineries and chemical plants in Louisiana. Includes
natural gas and fuel gas from many process units; electricity / steam cogeneration;
electricity purchases; set up ExxonMobil's power marketing program; oxygen, nitrogen,
and some hydrogen; and taxes. Spend substantial time with regulatory attorneys, trade
associations and coalitions on Public Service Commission and Federal Energy
Regulatory Commission issues and evolving policies.
How I spend my free time:What spare time?? Have multiple small interests versus
serious hobbies. Sailboat racing on a friend's 33' Tartan as the bowman / #1 sponge (aptly
named when high winds / waves). A little canoeing, camping, Mardi Gras'ing, Mardi
Paw'ing (dogs), and St. Patty'ing, church choir (2 serious concerts per year), cooking
(serious business in Louisiana), Habitat for Humanity, working in yard and garden, deep
sea fishing and a little genealogy in the winter. However, my two favorites are a quiet
evening with Susan, a fire, wine and soft music, and being a beach bum.
Other comments:South Louisiana is unlike the other 49 1/2 states (a fun place to live
and eat). Have a second home on Anna Maria island; working with an architect and
builder to update and expand for our future retirement home in 2011.

in 2002, I went to cosmotology school and got a license as an esthetician for specialty

and I wish we had met sooner! We have 5 children between us who live in either Oregon
or Montana. Our two grandchildren live in Montana so we tend to make a few trips there
each year! One son has a coffee roasting business, one is a teacher, one daughter is a

My Education:After Manatee High, I spent two years at Manatee Junior College and
then finished at Florida State with a degree in Criminology and Corrections. In 1974 I
earned my Masters degree in Education. In 1988 I received my second Bachelor's degree
in elementary education.
My Career:After Florida State, I went to South Korea to work for the Army (civilian) as
a recreation director on an Army post. I came back to Bradenton for a short while and
worked for a year on a team that was developed to help smooth the desegregation of the
Manatee County schools. Next on to Georgia and back with the Army where my fiance
was stationed. We had met in Korea and married in 1971. We moved to his home state of
Oregon and that is where I have been ever since! I have spent my entire working career in
education as a counselor, Title I teacher, music teacher and classroom teacher. I am
currently serving as the president of our 315 member teachers' union.
How I spend my free time:When I have spare time, my husband and I love to travel as
much as we can. We spent our honeymoon in the UK and have been all over the United
States on train, plane, bus, and car! I have also been all over the Orient and some places
in Europe. I also live for the time I can spend with my grandchildren in Montana.
Other comments:Life has been an interesting journey! Since all of my family still live in
Bradenton I do get back there once in awhile but the funny thing is I never see anyone I
know! My husband and I talk about retiring part of the year to Florida so I can see my
family more and who knows, maybe then I will run into some old classmates! Even if I
don't make the reunion this year, I will be thinking about you all and reading the
biographies. Have fun!

Other comments:My Mom passed away right after High School, so I stayed busy raising
my younger brothers and sisters. When you're young you have no idea about what it takes
to raise a family until something happens to one of your parents. I've been working since
I turned 15 and I must say even to this day I love to work. I currently work for Bank of
America and have been for the past forty years. It certainly keeps me on my toes. I left
my beloved Florida in 1998 and moved to Charlotte, NC. It took me sometime to adjust
to living here, but now I love it! It is great for riding my motorcycle. Love the mountains
and the change in the seasons. I am truly blessed to have a nice home, loving family and
many friends that help me get through the rough days. I don't worry about getting old, I
think of all the friends and loved ones in our lives that are no longer with us. Each day is
a blessing! I am looking forward to seeing all my classmates of the class of 1965!

                  move to Oregon to live on a commune.He asked me out but I didn't
                  think I had time to go anywhere. On July 4, I changed my mind and
                  went. I am glad I did because we have been together ever since. I do not
believe in love at first sight. Fortunately, I am not in charge. My son lives a block away
with his wife, who just graduated from college as a teacher in special ed..They are both
great and we are close. I went to Manatee Jr. and Florida Atlantic Universry. From here it
grows complicated so I will just skim over it. My husband worked in construction and the
Golden Gate Bridge and then retired. I was a part time worker. When I was pregnant I
was extremely ill with kidney problems. That problem led to other problems and a good
part of my life was and still is, spent dealing with my health. I have good friends, a nice
dog,and a wonderful husband. I have a large yard and garden, I read, go to classes on
things of interest,also museums, the zoo,arbatorium, all of the wonderful places of that
sort. I also attend plays often and I love every kind of dance. I recently saw Cirque de
soliel in Vegas. I like to go camping, the desert , the mountains, yosemite, just to much to
list. I also like church and am an episcopalean. and of course family and friends. Uh oh, I
just noticed the education and work part of this bio.. Sorry, already done it here.

                Saw my future husband in church and thought this is
                the one. Italian too. Got married in 1969, moved to
Okinawa where he was stationed with the Army Security Agency. Stayed there until he
was discharged in 1970. Our daughter was born in 1975, Gina Roxanne Sabetto now
Gina Carwile. Between my husband and daughter I couldn't ask for anything better. We
now own our own business raising and selling Orchids since 1983. We are both cancer
survivors and just glad to raise hell and party, especially in New Orleans where we go at
least twice a year, and hope to some day move there and get out of this rat race and I
mean that literally as we are 20 minutes from Disney.
How I spend my free time:Fishing when we can get the time off. Spending time with
the family and partying in New Orleans.

                   Spouse:Married to Bobbi Lively for 39 years with 2
                   children and 2 grandchildren.
                   Personal:Although I knew who she was since Walker
Jr. High, I really did not get to know Bobbi until Ed Moran talked her into taking Science
Seminar class our senior year. The class was just 5 or 6 of us (Bobbi the only girl) and we
met in the storage room of Mr. Allen's physics classroom. 7 years later I finally talked her
into marriage. We have two sons Matt & Micah. Matt graduated from the University of
Florida with a Masters and teaches here in Volusia County. His wife Stef is a drug
representative and they have two beautiful daughters, Katie who is 6 and Kelly is 4. They
live about a mile from us so we get to see the girls quite often. Micah is a Navy reserve
Officer and was called to active duty 9 January, 2007. He returned from Baghdad and
graduated from UF with a PHD in math. He and Hiroko are now in Atlanta where he is
with Georgia Tech Research Institute. They have no children yet but the good news is
that Bobbi is no longer the shortest one in the family.
My Education:Freshman year at Florida Presbyterian rooming with John Criswell and
graduated from Florida Institute of Technology with a degree in Electrical Engineering. I
was President of my fraternity and if you have ever seen Animal House you'll have good
understanding what our fraternity was like. Since then I have attended many work related
classes as diverse as Statistical Applications taught by the Japanese Union of Scientists
and Engineers and the Program Management Development at Harvard Business School. I
am registered Professional Engineer in the state of Florida.
My Career:I have been with FPL since graduating from FIT in 1971. Although it has
been the same company, I have had such a varied career that I feel like I have worked for
a dozen different organizations. From field engineering, construction, customer service,
general management, substations & transmission, corporate planning & reporting to now
external affairs. Lastsummer I retired from FPL after 39 years. When asked what I will
do I normally reply that we will take a vacation without my BlackBerry.
How I spend my free time:Bobbi and I are very involved in our community and I have
been Chairman/President of various organizations including, Daytona Beach Chamber of
Commerce, Boys & Girls Clubs, League of Women Voters, FUTURES Education
foundation and currently I am on the boards of WorkForce Development, Florida
International Festival, Civic League and Boys/Girls Clubs. My knees prevent any
basketball but Bobbi and I swing dance every week or so and she is still light enough that
I can do aerials and throw her around. We both ride motorcycles and I am co-chair of the
Bike Week Task Force that manages the largest motorcycle event in the world. We also
like to take a long weekend and ride to Savannah or longer trips like Washington D.C.
and Canada. For around town I restored the bike I wanted while in High School; a 1960
Harley Super-10.
Other comments:After 39 years of marriage I admit that I am still enamored with Bobbi.
We love the small town atmosphere of Ormond Beach yet we are 15 minutes from all the
activities in Daytona Beach and an hour from Orlando. We are blessed that our children
and 2 grandchildren live so close.

                 Personal:After my divorce, I met Bill through a mutual
                 friend. We dated and broke up because I didn't want to
                 get married. He sent me flowers and called to check on
me until we started dating again. Then we married. I couldn't find a better person to
spend my life with. As for my children and grandchildren, I am very fortunate to have

My Education:In 1968 I graduated from Judson College with an AB degree, received a
Masters of Education from the University of Montevallo in 1977 and completed some
post-graduate work at Auburn University in 1978. I am licensed as a Licensed
Professional Counselor.
My Career:In 1995 I retired from the public education system in Alabama, after working
for more than 25 years. Most of those years I worked as Director of Guidance and
Counseling in my current hometown of Prattville. Since I am also a Licensed
Professional Counselor, I opened my own business, working as a counselor and a
consultant. In January of 1997 I was appointed by Governor Fob James to serve in a sub-
cabinet level position at the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs.
For two years I coordinated block grant programs received by the state from the federal
government. When Gov. James lost the election, I lost my job! Since 1999 I have been
working as a Community Development Specialist, preparing grant applications and
administering projects for city and county governments throughout the State of Alabama.
How I spend my free time:I am active in my community in several ways. I am on the
board of directors of the Prattville Area Chamber of Commerce, the Mayor's Historic
Preservation Commission, past president of the Prattville Rotary Club, President of the
Board of Directors of a teenage drug and alcohol abuse prevention program, Peers Are
Staying Straight: the NOBLE Idea, and a member of the Autauga County Republican
Club. I have been active in state and local politics for the last ten years. My greatest
adventure at this time is my work with the Central Alabama Chapter of the American Red
Cross, where I am a board member and chairman of the Emergency Services Committee.
I am also a National Disaster Mental Health Worker and have worked two disasters - the
September 11th Attack in New York City and Hurricane Frances last September. My
husband, Nicky, and I attend First Baptist Church, where we are active in our Sunday
School class. And, of course, in my spare time, I play with my three grandchildren, Tyler,
10, Molly 7, and Will 3.

                while crossing a street in Las Vegas in December 1997. He lived about
                six days following his accident. His family was with him at the end. Jack
                worked in the entertainment industry there. He was divorced, and had
                one son

                Spouse:Married to Gene for 15 years with 1 child and 7
                Personal:My husband, Gene, was the best friend of my
                late husband, Larry, who died of complications from
Multiple Sclerosis. He was always there for Larry and continued to be there for me after
Larry died. It took us both by surprise when we fell in love and we married on June 3,
1995. I have one son, Danny, who is married, lives in Burlington, Vermont, has twins,
Bobby & Amanda, and works as a Computer Tech for NCR. My other 5 grandchildren
came into my life by way of my marriage to Larry and some of them have given me a
total of 5 Great-grandchildren so far. Gene's only child, his daughter, Darlene, passed
away in 2004; she had no children.
My Education:I attended MJC for one year and the Univ. of Cincinnati 'College
Conservatory of Music' for one year, but discontinued my education to get married. I now
realize that my love of music sent me in the wrong educational direction as I spent most
of my working career in office management and banking. I took a break for several years
when Larry's MS progressed and he needed me at home. I continued to be a homemaker
when Gene and I married. Then I decided I wanted to do something part-time for fun and
was a hostess at Demetrios' for 5 years, which was a very happy experience. I just love
being around people! Gene and I are now both retired and taking life easy with our dog
and 3 cats and enjoy being free to do what we want, when we want.
My Career:Office Management, Banking, Accounting; Playing the organ at restaurants,
private clubs and lots of weddings; Hostessing. Now retired.
How I spend my free time:I'm a huge computer buff and enjoy the cyberworld. Gene
and I are happiest just being at home (he's an avid gardener and we never want for fresh
veggies), but we do like to travel now and then. We are big animal lovers and our furballs
tend to keep us on the homefront as we just hate to leave them. Love spending time with
our family and enjoy going out to dinner often with friends.
Other comments:I am originally from Lake Orion, Michigan, moving to Anna Maria
Island with my parents in 1954 and growing up in Holmes Beach. I'll always be grateful
to them for bringing me to such a wonderful place to grow up and live. They say, "never
say never," but I'm pretty sure that Manatee County will be my forever home. And my
years at Manatee High will always be some of my most cherished memories!

of three sons, Steve II, Eric and Brian and have eleven grandchildren and two great-
grandchildren. Both Steve and Brian live relatively close to us allowing us ample
opportunity to get our "grandparent fixes". Unfortunately Eric, his wife and their four
children live north of San Antonio, TX, which is a constant source of displeasure since
we don't get to spend nearly as much time with them as we'd like. But in the end all are
happy and healthy, so the bottom line is life is good.
My Career:Following my freshman year at MJC, I joined the Air Force where I served
in the medical field spending three years in Texas and the final year in Turkey. Upon my
discharge from the Air Force, I joined a highway construction company that was engaged
in the construction of the interstate highway system in West Virginia. Beginning as a
field office manager, I eventally was promoted to Cost Analyst and Accounting
Surpervisor for the corporation which was made up of nine different companies. In the
summer of 1975, I had the opportunity to join in a business venture with my father in first
one then eventually four supermarkets. In the summer of 1986, having become
disillusioned with "being the boss", I joined Wal-Mart Stores as a member of the
management team in the Sam's Club division. During my tenure with Sam's I worked in
West Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina and Ohio while my wife and family remained
at home. Tiring of the travel and being forced to spend ! so much time apart I seized the
opportunity to return home and joined the West Virginia State Tax Department as a tax
auditor. Effective April 1, 2010, I assumed the position of Tax Unit Supervisor of the
Withholding Tax Unit.
How I spend my free time:Spare time is a precious commodity for both of us, but what
we have we enjoy spending traveling and involved in church work. I serve as Worship
Leader for our Sunday services and also teach an adult Sunday School class. I've also

                 act as a "placement agent" for homeless creatures instead of adopting
them myself.
My Education:After MJC I traveled and lived in many interesting and beautiful places.
Returned to school for a Bachelor of Science in Public Health. Internship at an STD
Clinic in NYC at the beginning of the AIDS epidemic. Many career-related seminars.
My Career:Joined the Arthritis Foundation in 1986 as a Program Director intending to

quarter of a century has passed in what seems like an instant!!
How I spend my free time:My #1 hobby lately seems to be fretting about whether the

die. My guilty pleasures are still shopping for art, antiques and curious objects of any
kind...and, of course, Shake Pit!! I love to travel but also enjoy sunsets on the Manatee

my first grandchild due in June. I cross stitch, and belong to a weekly stitch & b----
group.NW Bradenton has the new Robinson Preserve and I utilize it a lot for walking.
Other comments:The accomplishment that I am most proud of is that I have overcome
the belief that I could never learn to play a guitar. I have a long way to go, but I can make
music with the thing and accompany myself in my attempt to sing. It was such a
confidence boost, that I bought a banjo and started on that too. I really look forward to
playing for the grandchildren and introducing them to the traditional songs I learned in
elementary school--plus a few other good ones I know!I'm a cabin widow in 2008-2009!
We purchased a log cabin package and had it dried in on our property in Brasstown, N.C.
It's now a low-budget, one-man operation with Michael working much of the year(s)to
complete it. It's on-the-job trainng and he's anxious to see if the electric will actually

                   Personal:John and I met in the mid-90's in Anchorage,
                   Alaska, as Dr. and patient. He's an exercise physiologist
                   and life-style counselor and he was successful in
showing me the right path to wellness. He relocated to Michigan and years later, we ran
into each other unexpectedly at an Anchorage Running Club event. He had been back to
Anchorage for a speaking engagement and was helping his buddy, the race director, set
up the course that day. We discovered that we are soulmates. He "popped the question" at
the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, we spent our honeymoon on a 520 mile road bike trek
across Nebraska and the rest is joyful history. I have three children from previous

Independence aircraft carrier in the Persian Gulf, lives and works in Las Vegas,in
marketing and PR.
My Education:Following Manatee High, went to MJC, married and became a Navy wife
and mom.
My Career:The best way that I can describe my "career" is that it has been a collage of
varied and usually, interesting experiences, including banking, medical secretary,
carpentry (working up to crew leader on several Arvida projects for Holmes
Construction),podiatric surgical assistant and certified x-ray tech, Nikken Wellness
Consultant and most recently, admin. assistant at Disability Support Services at the
University of Alaska-Anchorage for seven years prior to marrying John and moving to
Chester, Nebraska, his hometown, to where he has semi- retired.I loved my eleven years
in Alaska. Besides being stunningly beautiful, I found it to be multi-culturally rich.I
thoroughly enjoyed my work at the University and my volunteer work with the Rainbow
Project, an equestrian program for disabled children, the Bird Treatment Center, a rescue
and rehab center for birds caught in oil spills, the Alaska Run for Women, the Men's
Cancer Run, the Iditarod, and the World Special Olympics Winter Games to name a few.
How I spend my free time:First of all, I love spending time with my kids and
grandchildren, returning to B'town every chance I get and getting together with Jon
whenever possible. John and I love biking and travelling, gardening,being sports fans and
just being together.John presented me with a wonderful yearling registered Paint colt
upon my arrival here and I have become an avid student of Parelli natural horsemanship,
as we now have three horses and a donkey, with ages ranging from under 2 to 27 yrs
old.It's fascinating. We are both involved in our local economic development group. We
are staunch supporters of our local high school sports teams and enjoy every Nebraska
Husker "Big Red" game that we can get to. I've become a member of our local volunteer
fire and rescue squad as a First Responder with the rescue squad and plan to take the
EMT course this fall. I love photography. I find great joy in making wheel-thrown
pottery. Have joined a ladies' tap dance class and ,yes, we've even performed at the
Spring Recital for the past three years!( Quite a revolutionary concept at first, for some of
the local audience!) It's great fun and exercise!
Other comments:Life has been such a wonderful journey, ups and downs included. I've
been so blessed with loving family and friends and enriched by so many opportunities
and experiences. Having lost a dear friend in November to cancer, I'm more mindful than
ever, to do my best to make the very best, of every day I'm given, cherishing my family,
friends and life in general. I'm really looking forward to our reunion!

Other comments:Started in medical field from High school been in it ever since. Lived
in Munich, Germany for 2 and a half years, did extensive traveling. Have been to 22
countries to date. Dale and I lived in Cape Coral/FtMyers for 13 years after living in
Colorado. I could not wait to get back to Colorado so we moved back in 1995 and have
been here since. We will probably wind up being "snow birds" when we decide to retire.
We have property in the mountains and enjoy it as much as possible. We truely live in a
beautiful state. We have an RV, and have vacationed in Grand Canyon, Yellowstone,
Glacier Natl. Park, Canadian ROckies. Our most recent trip last year ..we flew to San
Francisco, rented a Class C motorhome and drove up the Pacific Coast Highway all the
way to Canada. What a great trip...enjoyed the wine country in California, and thought
the most beautiful part of the coast line was Oregon, and enjoyed our trip out to VIctoria
Island , Canada. We also sp! end a lot of time with our kids and grandchildren. We were
fortunate when we moved to Colorado it wasn't long after that they moved out as well. I
am still working I manage a Retina practice with 11 surgeons and 7 locations. I truly have
loved my career in Ophthalmology. Still go back to Bradenton to visit our families when
we can. I also received my pilots license...lessons in Naples, FL. and finished up in
Colorado. Enjoyed flying but renting planes and aviation fuel got a little too expensive to
keep it up. My husad and I are also certified divers. A lot of diving in Florida Keys,
Cozemel Mexico, Grand Cayman. We truely are enjoying life as much as we possibly
can. Oh, and somewhere along the way got old....since I cannot seem to slow down, I get
a reminder every time I look in the mirror and see this older face looking back and my
bad knees remind me as well. Oh well they have been good years...if anyone out
Colorado way look us up.

                  Personal:I met Gloria in Brownsville,Texas. I used to
                  hang out at the Rio Grande River, looking for
desperate, beautiful, young senoritas. (Now I regret droping out of Spanish II). My two
sons, James & Rod, and my daughter, Angel are all gainfully employed and off of my

                  child and 2 step grandchildren.
                  Personal:I didn’t think my biography would be of
                  much interest. But it’s been so great to read other
                  peoples’ biographies that I thought I would give it a try.
(For those of you who remember, I have to tell you that, no, I’m not any taller.) My
husband and I didn’t meet cute, we were just introduced by mutual friends. That event
happened in Tampa, where we had both been going to the University of South Florida.
We didn’t get married right away, but we were a couple almost from the beginning. We
now live in Palma Sola, and have seen Bradenton grow so much.
My Education:My father really wanted me to go to MJC, but I was determined to go to
FSU. My high school pal (Shirley Green Harris) and I were going to be roommates. I
knew nothing about colleges, but Shirley told me there were lots of boys at FSU so I was
ready to go. But I got into the anti-establishment lifestyle and dropped out of FSU in my
third year. After some time at Electronic Data Preparation, I decided to go back to school.
It was another last-minute decision, so I went to the University of South Florida in
Tampa. I figured I could always live at home and commute until I found an apartment. I
ended up getting a bachelor’s degree in English (1970) and a master’s degree in English
My Career:My husband and I moved back to Bradenton and into the house I grew up in.
I got a job as a reporter at the Bradenton Herald. I was making $3.75 an hour at the
Bradenton Herald. We were going to be rich! After almost five years at the Bradenton
Herald, I got a job (and a raise) at the Sarasota Herald-Tribune. After almost five years at
the H-T, I decided to change fields and went to work at the Ringling Museum of Art. I
really liked the people at the RMA, but I never felt like the job would be there the next
day. The whole enterprise was a lot shakier back then. So I went to law school after only
ten months at the RMA. I graduated from Stetson University College of Law in 1989.
After working for the circuit judges in a research capacity, I am now Child Support
magistrate for our circuit. I have never run out of work.
How I spend my free time:Well, get a law degree and suddenly people want you on
their board. I was the second woman admitted to the Bradenton Kiwanis Club in 1992. I
became its first woman president in 1999-2000. In addition to my job I was doing all
sorts of things for boards of non-profits. It all came crashing down in May of 2000. That
was when I had four or five strokes in 24 hours. I was in the hospital for eight weeks and
out of work for 12 weeks. It was horrible, life and death stuff, but things seem to be over
for now. So I was whacked by life, but I’m still here. (Although, if not for my husband, I
don’t know where I would be.)
Other comments:I like to walk and stop and look at the flowers. I also like to see and
listen to the birds. I used to read a lot, but reading is not as easy as it once was. I just rest
up so I can go back to work, and am thankful that I can still work.

                 planning to retire to our home in Dawsonville Ga. when economy turns
around enough to sell out here. I was born in Bradenton but have fallen in love with
Northern Georgia. The only problem I have with moving, will be leaving all my family
and friends 9 hours behind. I can't imagine not seeing the grand kids all the time. They
are growing up so fast.

down...can't imagine it. Recently I've joined the ranks of Facebook and am enjoying

Other comments:I am now 63 years old (I think..) and enjoying life as much as I can. I
have fibromyalgia which has been causing me a fit lately. The meds I take for it have
caused a weight gain that I truly hate but hopefully can eventually get off now that I've
retired. I paint "take classes" every spare minute that I can. We purchased a golden
retriever whose parental lineage is quite impressive as show dogs (His sister came in first
in Brazil recently). He is a little over a year now and is NUTS. Loves water...loves us...he
is just extremely rambunctious for old people!! he has now been "fixed" and is driving us
really crazy with the cone he has to wear for 10 days. We also have two 5 yr. old Lhasas
who put up with him.

                  Personal:My husband Ken and I met in Ft. Myers, and I have to say it
                  was love at first sight! My husband is a real estate broker and does
                  property management. We also are developing property in Gatlinburg
TN. Our son lives in Sarasota also and is a mortgage broker and a property appraiser. He
became engaged to a wonderful young woman only this month.
My Education:Florida Real Estate License
My Career:I started out with TimeShare on Sanibel Island. After coming back to
Sarasota I represented a developer at Tidy Island off of Cortez Road. From there I have
spent 10 years selling new homes on Palmer Ranch, then on to Hidden Bay in Osprey and
have been in Venice for the last 9 years. At present I sell new homes for Sam Rodgers
Properties at Pelican Pointe. I love what I do!
How I spend my free time:Ken and I both at this juncture in our lives are pretty tired at
the end of the day. Mostly I like to read and garden. When possible I still like to paint (as
in pictures) I love going to the beach at dusk and particularly love the beach at night
during a full moon. We really do live in paradise.
Other comments:I was a very shy girl and quite insecure. Part of it was due to the fact
that there was another Barbara Jones who was one to two years older than I who had
quite a reputation with the boys. Unfortunately, I was accused of doing "things" with
other girl's boyfriends. That was a hard knock for a very sweet, very innocent girl. I do
regret letting my shyness get in the way of enjoying life as a teen and not getting to know
classmates I spent so many years with. However all that has changed and I have long
since emerged from the cocoon and can quite honestly say that I am happy, healthy and
in love with life.

have lived in Tallahasse 45 years now. We loved Tallahassee and met so many wonderful

raise our children here. We have two wonderful sons, Carlton (age 36) and Wilson (age
32) and they both live in Tallahassee and are both married to wonderful daughter -in -
laws who were both from Tallahassee and so all the families live here and we can share
the grandchildren and holidays etc. We are very happy that they have decided to make

projects.We are members of Faith Presbyterian Church.

may not finish it before the termites do ( what a problem). I currently help my husband
and sons decorate their projects when they need me to and I love doing this.Now my
main interest and love is my GRANDSONS!
Other comments:I am so looking forward to seeing you all...I still come to Bradenton
every summer for my family reunion with my sister's family from North Carolina and we
stay on Anna Maria. I still think there is nothing in the world as beautiful as Anna Maria
Island and the sentimental feeling that I have whenever I drive over the bridge into
Bradenton...there is just nothing like your old "HOMETOWN".My mother is still
living...almost 95 but I did move her 6 months ago up to Tallahassee where I could be
closer and take care of her....she is failing some and is in an assisted living facility close
to my house and I see her every day....It is very sad as we all know.

                   Personal:A miracle happened. After a 20 year career in
                   the Air Force, in which I spent the last six years
                   traveling thoughout the world supporting the
engineering community, I retired from the Air Force, got divorced and started anew.
After surviving these changes, I managed to succeed in the business world as the leader
of a small company in Reston, VA that included a wonderful Civil Engineer named
Karen Hoelscher who found me interesting. After several months of working together, we
ended up dating. We found our interests to be very similar and we married within a year
of our first date. We live in Ashburn, VA in the home we purchased shortly after we got
My Education:BS Mechanical Engineering, Auburn University (named the Outstanding
Engineering Graduate for 1975) MS Facilities Management, Air Force Institute of
Technology, Distinguished Graduate, Professional Engineering License, Virginia
My Career:Twenty year career in the United States Air Force as an Engineering Officer
where I earned my degrees and began a transition to follow my interests in technology.
After the Air Force, I focused on technology and managed to have the opportunity to lead
and mentor many aspiring young folks. I retired from business in 2007 and have been
happily pursuing fun where ever I can find it. Karen and I travel somewhere every month
and do something we have not done before. I must admit that having to many hobbies
and interests makes life interesting since I enjoy it all. We continue to look for a
retirement location that meets all of our criteria, so far, no winners, although Flagstaff,
AZ has potential. So we remain in Northern Virginia, very close to the Dulles Airport
from which we depart on a regular basis. I love trains, so we also travel here and there on
Amtrak departing from DC. I continue to serve on some boards at Auburn University and
the University of Wyom! ing and that gives us another excuse travel. I also am the
President of the Auburn Research and Development Institute but that is not work. The
institute is a non-profit and I consider my time spent supporting it a way for me to give
back to Auburn for the great time and education I received there.
How I spend my free time:Music and art remain my favorite hobbies but I play a lot of
golf, love to bass fish, canoe, camp and hike. In the winter, we ski in Utah and enjoy
snow shoeing in the State Parks in PA and WV mixed in with trips to the Florida to warm
up. My newest hobby is genealogy. The search for information on ancestors gives us a
reason to go visit somewhere new and poke around. We also geocache along the way and
have found some very unusual locations. Since we have not settled on a retirement
location, we have been rebuilding our home of over 20 years. We keep saying we are
doing things so it will sell easier when the time is right, but we are making it more ours
every day, from the theater room to the new master bath. All of my hobbies help since I
do all the work myself with my very able helper Karen. The tile work in the new bath is
the latest challenge. Oh, and I guess following NASCAR is also a hobby of sorts since we
are on a mission to visit every track. I! follow Tony Stewart just in case anyone is
Other comments:My fondest memories of the Manatee High School years are of all the
time playing in the band, the Four Keys, with Bobby McReady, Rick Leonard and Bill
Jones. We ended our Four Keys partnership when Rick and Bobby were drafted ending
what I now realize was a very special time. Who knows what might have been if Viet
Nam had not intervened. I regret that I did not get a chance to catch up with Rick before
he passed away and hope to see Bobby and Bill again in the near future. I must admit, the
days in school at Manatee remain a blur.

                   Home:770 928-1058
                   Spouse:Married to Faye for 26 years with 2 children.
                   Personal:I married Rita Kay Whitfied in October 1967. We divorced in
                   December 1971. I stayed single until October 1979 when I married my
                   wife Faye. We have been happily married since. We have two grown
                   boys. Bryan (34 yr. old) from Faye's first marriage and Steven (24 yr.
old) from our marriage. My dad lives with us and is 82 yr. old. My mother passed away
July 1996.
My Education:I entered the Air Force in May 1967 and became part of the Air Force
security service. Spent 2+years at an isolated base on top of a mountain in Taiwan.
Returned to the states at the end of 1969 and spent 9 mos. at the National Security
Agency in Maryland. Was discharged from the service there in Dec. 1970. Enrolled at
University of South Florida January 1971. Graduated with a degree in business
administration in March 1973.
My Career:Job market was bad at that time so a college roommate and I saved up money
from working construction and took off to Europe. Spent 6 mos. covering England,
France, Italy, Yugoslavia (Bosnia), Greece, Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary, Switzerland,
Austria, Germany and Belgium. Worked illegally in three different businesses while in
England (no green card). Returned to states at the end of 1973 and moved to Atlanta, Ga.
early 1974. Started working for an international company that manufactured maintenance
and repair welding alloys and associated products. Was in sales and sales recruiting with
them. Left that company and started working for a transportation company specializing in
the shipment of new automobiles from ports, railheads and auto manufactures. This was
March 1977 and I supervised our companies operation at the Doraville, Georgia General
Motors assembly plant. In 1979 I did the same type of job at the Atlanta, Georgia General
Motors assembly plant until they closed the plant in 1989. I then went back to the
Doraville facility until December 2002. At that time I decided to make a change and
started working with a friend of mine in the residential remodeling industry. This past
winter, I started my own remodeling company.
How I spend my free time:I see Bob McReady every so often. He lives in Hartwell,
Georgia. I ran into Larry Smith many years ago and I think he said that Mike Moore and
Bob Warner live around the Atlanta area somewhere. Ran into Gordon Tyler years ago at
a party. He graduated in 1964. That about covers the last 40 in a nutshell.
Other comments:Rick K. Leonard, a loving father, husband and grandfather, died at the

My Education:B.A. Elementary Education; Masters Degree in Christian Education -
Asbury Theological Seminary, 1997; Masters Degree in Theological Studies - St.
Meinrad School of Theology, 2003
My Career:Preschool Teacher; Instructional Assistant; Chaplain; Library Assistant -
Public Library and Periodicals Library Assistant - Theological Library; In 2006 I started
my own ministry to health care facilities - Bridge to the Soul. I do spiritual and
reminiscing programs at all levels of senior residential care facilities. It is so rewarding to
bring special programming to these residents. They truly look forward to the programs,
whether they are spiritual in nature or whether they take them back in time to special
places, events, or periods in their lives. In the evenings, I also work part-time at Roaring
20s Pizza and Pipes Restaurant. What pure joy for a music lover like myself to be where
a beautiful 1931 Mighty Wurlitzer Theater organ is played by outstanding organists. The
customers especially love Sat. nights when my co-worker and I become the flapper
"ladies in red" dancing the jitterbug, Charleston, and any other dances we can fake our
way through!!!
How I spend my free time:What "spare time"???? I USED to enjoy writing when I DID
have spare time. (In the late 90’s, Blue Mountain Art accepted 6 of my pieces for a
market review. Although they did not make the final cut for publication, I hope to be able
to try again at some point in time.) I love square dancing (especially singing calls to more
modern music rather than the typical western fair), and line dancing, but unfortunately
square dancing is not available as it used to be years ago. I sure do miss it!!! For many
years I was involved in the Walk to Emmaus and Residents Encounter Christ Prison
ministry - spiritual retreat weekends patterned after Cursillo... a true outpouring of
Christian love and sharing. I want very much to be able to return to this ministry again.
Other comments:It is such fun catching up on everyone’s lives through the website, and
I’m really looking forward to the reunion (but I’m still having a great deal of trouble
accepting that we are not just parents anymore we are GRANDPARENTS!!! The
problem is that my mind still thinks I’m YOUNG, but my body refuses to agree; it
continues to argue its case with bags and sags wrinkles and crinkles!

                   My Education:Georgtown University: B.S. in
                   Psychology (minor: Political Science)Vanderbilt
                   University Ph.D. in Psychology
My Career:1974-1985: Indiana University, Professor, Department of Psychology. 1986-
University of California, Berkeley, Professor, Department of Psychology. My job centers
on research and training graduate students. Since moving to Berkeley, I have been
studying human emotions, with a particular interest in how they are organized in the
central and autonomic nervous systems, and how they are influenced by age, culture, and,
most recently, neurological disease. One way that we have studied emotion is in the
context of marriage and other intimate relationships, a bit ironic for someone who has
never married. In recent years I've also been doing a certain amount of administrative
work, directing research institutes, training programs, and working with national
organizations. It's been a real privilige to have this kind of career in science, following
my curiosity, and getting to work with great colleagues and students.
How I spend my free time:I played in jazz and rock bands all the way through graduate
school and my first job in Indiana, then took about a decade off when I moved to
California. I started up playing again after that and it sort of exploded. At times I've been
playing in as many as four bands, mostly small jazz groups, but also big jazz bands, and
rhythm and blues bands. There's a vibrant live music scene in the Bay Area, so the groups
perform regularly. Three years ago I took over as musical director/conductor of a local
big band jazz group and now that group is also performing regularly. It nicely completes
a circle for me because my first experience playing jazz came in the Manatee High jazz
group (I think it was called the Raisin' Canes). Beyond music (playing, conducting,
listening to), I have two huge addictions: ballet and sailing. San Francisco has a world
class ballet company and I never miss a performance. And the San Francisco Bay is a
remarkable, beuatiful, and challenging place for sailing.
Other comments:I won't be able to join everyone for the reunion this year, but I've really
enjoyed reading through the updates everyone has posted and following the paths of
peoples' lives. I know the reunion will be great fun and a wonderful opportunity to renew
friendships and relive memories. I'm planning on putting aside some time during the
reunion weekend to think about those high school times, now so long ago.

                  Personal:I can honestly say that I lived a storybook
                  life. I married classmate Bob Coleman a month after he
graduated from engineering school, FIT. Due to his work with Florida Power & Light,
we’ve lived a number of places in the state and now have friends everywhere. We have

Tech Research Institute. His wife, Hiroko, is a dental hygienist at a Japanese Medical
Clinic. They have two Beagles (NO CHILDREN ---- YET!)

After the boys left home, I became more involved with non-profits and then Development
Officer for the education foundation for our school district, FUTURES Foundation. I am
now once again living off Bob and spending our childrens' inheritance. I'm so good at
this, too.
How I spend my free time:We are fortunate that one boy lives nearby, so we love
spending time with him and his family. We both are involved in various religious, civic
and charitable organizations in our area. I’m Past President of Leadership Daytona, Past

Eagles Athletic Association for Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Community
Advisory Board for PACE Center for Girls and Chair of the Chamber's Education

                  Spouse:Married to Rita for 15 years with 3 children
                  and 6 grandchildren.
                  Personal:Rita and I met in Tallahassee when I was
between assignments on ships and it was love at first sight. The bottom line is I never
again went out to sea! That became time for a career change and a trip back to FSU for
another degree! Rita is a retired mental health counselor who spent much of her career at
FSU. I am her greatest professional challenge. We have one son who lives in Kinnesaw,
Ga who is an engineer for Lockheed Martin. Our oldest son lives in Tallahassee and is
the Principal at Montford Middle School. Our youngest son lives in Boca Raton and is an
area manager for Ferguson Waterworks. All three have two children each ranging in age
from 10 years to two months.
My Education:After Manatee and Leon I attended FSU, getting a degree in Voice and
Music Education. Sang professionally for several years and returned to FSU for a Masters
degree in Voice. Taught school for a few years after that, hated it and went to sea. I got a
Coast Guard Captain's license and eventually a Merchant Marine license and spent 14
years as a captain mainly on corporate and private yachts. I spent most of that time on the
east coast and in the Caribbean. Dirty work but someone had to do it. Marraige to Rita
brought me back to FSU to work on a Master's degree in Public Administration. I may
even finish it some day.
My Career:The past 16 years on dry land have been in state government in Tallahassee,
first working as a policy analyst in the Governor's Office and since 2000 as
Communications Director and spokesman for the Agency for Workforce Innovation. In
2007 I retired from state government and formed Warren May Communications, a public
relations firm located in Tallahassee. I was recently asked to come back to the Agency for
Workforce Innovation and I am working in Labor Market Statistics.
How I spend my free time:Rita and I are very much into bicycling, and we enjoy doing
day trips and touring. Our ultimate dream is to do an extended bicycle tour through
France and the Netherlands. Rita's family is from the Netherlands and we grab every
opportunity to visit there. Additionally I enjoy (?) running and doing triathlons with our
sons. Their goal is to place - mine is to finish without the assistance of medical personnel.
We also enjoy time spent with granchildren, spoiling them rotten and then letting their
parents deal with the aftermath.
Other comments:Still trying to keep the musical traditions of MHS alive and well and I
am very active in our community and church musical activities.

                  Spouse:Married to Marilyn for 36 years with 2 children
                  and 2 grandchildren.
                  Personal:Marilyn and I met right after my very first
                  class at FSU. I flipped a coin with a buddy of mine
from Leon High to see who would get the chance to meet the cute brunette sitting on the
front row in class (naturally, we were sitting on the back row). I won, and we have been
married for 36 years now. We have 2 children, Brian and David. Brian and his family live
in Orlando and are raising our two grandchildren, Jack and Ethan. When they lived in
Gainesville we would visit them as often as we could, but because they recently moved to
Orlando, that’s going to make visits a little tougher. Brian does location analysis for a
real estate developer using mapping and GIS techniques he has developed over the years
for his own company. David and his new wife of last year still live in Tallahassee and we
see them often. No kids for them, yet. He is a computer guru for a national
telecommunications company based in Tallahassee.
My Education:I went to FSU after graduating from my second high school (Leon High),
majored in Sociology and got a BA from FSU in 1969. After returning from Vietnam,
where I served as an Army Intelligence Officer, I went back to FSU and did graduate
work in Urban and Regional Planning and received an MS degree in 1974. Wayne Daltry
was in my class and we wound up working together in one capacity or another for more
than twenty-five years!
My Career:I worked my way through college working part-time for Eastern Airlines,
cleaning airplanes and loading baggage. Now that was a great job for a college kid! I
began my professional career working for the state in 1973 in the Division of State
Planning. I was fortunate to get in on the ground floor of implementing new state
planning and land use laws that were pretty pioneering for the time. I worked my way up
to becoming a Bureau Chief for five years, and left in 1982 to spend two years working
for the legislature’s House Select Committee on Growth Management. The legislature
was a pretty fun place to work in those days, unlike today!! When the committee
disbanded in 1984 I went back to FSU to work as a senior analyst in an applied research
institute. I mostly did statewide research projects dealing with local comprehensive
planning and growth management, water resource planning, land use management, and
geographic information systems…. pretty boring stuff for most of you (except Wayne).
After 32 years of public service I retired last year.
How I spend my free time:We have a beach house at Alligator Point (about an hour
from Tallahassee) where we go as often as possible. We have a boat and love to fish the
flats and an occasional offshore run or just go boating. I do a lot of reading (mostly
nonfiction) and am currently involved in helping two colleagues write a book on the
history of state planning with an emphasis on Florida. And
Other comments:James died Monday, November 19, 2007. James was born in
Tallahassee in 1947 to Warren A. and Pauline May. He was raised in Bradenton and
returned to Tallahassee with his family as a junior in high school. He graduated from
FSU and served in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam Conflict. He returned to FSU with
his bride and young son, and earned a master's degree in urban and regional planning. He
remained in Tallahassee to pursue an accomplished career, including work with the
Department of Community Affairs, the Florida Legislature and Florida State University.
James was an avid fisherman and devoted FSU Seminole fan. He was preceded in death
five months ago by his beloved wife of 37 years, Marilyn May. Survivors include his son,
Brian and wife Patti, and his son David and wife Jeanette; a brother, Warren May and
sister, Barbara Leonard; and four grandsons, Jack, Ethan, Sean and Stephen, all of

Women's Bible Study and teaching the 2nd graders in AWANA). I like gardening,

also like evenings at home with dinner and a good movie. We're not retired, but we're
ready to work less and travel more.

                   texan unless you plan to live in texas. my first 4 loves

My Career:it took me an extra semester to complete my formal education and during

to chicago where there was a huge winter storm. I realized that the copilot had been
shouting at me that the storms were getting worse and we were getting even lower on
fuel. I finally responed to him and apologized for for being distracted. he was very upset
and asked me what could ever distract me from the situation we were in. i told him that i
was still trying to figure out what happened to Don Hall to make Don the way he is. The
copilot just didnt get it. but i thought you would understand.

                  Personal:Blind date while I was in graduate school at Ga. State Univ. in
                  Atlanta, Ga. Greg was attending law school at Emory Law School in
                  Atlanta. We were married in 1972 and two sons---Christopher is 29,
                  married, lives in Ft. Worth and is part owner of commercial real estate
firm. He and his wife Meredyth are expecting their first child in September. Dan our
youngest is 25 and attends Western State University in Gunnison, CO.
My Education:I graduated from Barry University in 1969 with a major in Marketing and
Management and then attended graduate school in Atlanta. I received my M.Ed in 1971.
From 1971-75 I taught high school in Colorado and then retired to raise our first son.
Afte the birth of our second son we moved back to Bradenton to work in my business---
Suncoast Manor Nursing Home. I retired from Suncoast in 1994 and took time off to
write a book on our youngest son Dan who is learning disabled. That was published in
1998 the same year that we moved back to Colorado where we reside today.
My Career:I am retired and Greg still practices law in Colorado Springs however we
have applied to the Peace Corps and if accepted looking at starting that journey in life in

                   nephews to spoil!
                   My Education:The long version is boring - graduated from MJC and
                   then the University of Florida. (Go Gators!) Taught high school English
                   for a year, then started grad school (did not finish), became a Kmart
manager (highest profit store in the Southern Region), left that to go to law school (had
second thoughts and did not do that either), worked in various other business enterprises.I
am an admissions advisor for a college and enjoy working with students as they start this
new phase of their lives. It is so different from when we started college because they
really want to know how this education is going to translate into dollars in the future. I
guess this is a sign of the times but it does seem a bit sad.
My Career:Came back to Bradenton to be with my Father, who had Macular
Degeneration. He went into the hospital for a simple surgery (Hint: DO NOT go to a
doctor who has you fill out paperwork in PENCIL - no matter how many
recommendations you hear!) in September and was hospitalized until he passed away in
January. Stayed in Bradenton until I moved to Colorado to live with my older, widowed
sister. (Adjustments required here since we had not lived together since I was 8 and she
went off to college . . . )
How I spend my free time:Have enjoyed living in Colorado - less humidity, no
snowbirds, no hurricanes - most of the time - except for super heavy snows, no view of
the gulf, no good seafood (don't even let me begin about what they think is 'jumbo'
shrimp!). Anything you want in entertainment is here - amazing theatre, concerts (Sting,
the Eagles, Billy Joel, Madonna, even Lady Gaga - no, I did NOT see her) art,
symphonies, opera - and every kind of food you can think of! (No, I have not and will
NOT eat 'rocky mountain oysters'!) The mountains are beautiful, the elevation can be
challenging and the sun is closer and brighter here!
Other comments:THINGS I HAVE LEARNED: You are only as old as you want or
allow yourself to be. If you want to enjoy life - do it and do it well! Find new things to
learn - your brain will love it and it makes you more alive! READ - belonging to a book
club makes you read things you would not normally choose and expands your vistas! Do
something kind for someone as often as you can and do it anonymously! Make donations
to causes that you believe in - support the beliefs you hold! Say thanks to God for all that
you have and do it often.

                Spouse:Married to Eva for 36 years with 1 child.
                Personal:I met my wife, Eva, in Bradenton (at Mario's Restaurant),
                shortly after graduating from MJC. She is Canadian, but is finally trying
                to get her U.S. citizenship. My daughter, Christa Ramey and her
husband Tim, live in North Carolina, near Asheville. She graduated from USF with a BA
in literature, and is currently an independent contractor with the local court system. She
also takes care of the accounting for Tim's business. Both she and my wife are petite (4-
11). Tim, however, is 6' tall and is about to turn professional in the "world's strongest
man" competitions. Google "Tim Ramey" and you will see some pictures of him.Eva is

My Career:After graduating, I worked for a short time as an engineering tech and
production supervisor for a small company in Bradenton, and then went to work for GTE.
I worked as an engineer with GTE until I took early retirement in 1999. I currently work
for a communications company in South Carolina, called NuVox Communications. For a
few years between 1998 and 1993, I owned a motel in Maggie Valley, NC. That did not
work out very well, though, and we finally sold it (that is a really looooooong story.)
How I spend my free time:I am into computers (self-taught programmer.) Some years
ago I actually had a game published for the Apple II computer. If you Google the title
"Bats in the Belfry" you will find it on the Internet. Apparently people collect those old
Apple II games. Unfortunately, it hit the market at exactly the wrong time (the game
market crashed that year) so I didn't make much money from it. I also play guitar (also
self taught.) I play anything from classical guitar, to bluegrass. At current count, I have 5
guitars, with one more being shipped from Taiwan, and due to arrive soon. Recently I
have gotten the flight simulation bug, and spend a lot of time with Microsoft Flight
Simulator. Graphics on computers have really come a long way!

                 with a 40th edition (1993)vette. I had to laugh...Somehow the thought of
1 hot ride + 2 old grayhaired gramps just doesn't equate! In all fairness though, it is a
beautiful car and he has always wanted one so... Happy Anniversary to us dear. We have
3 daughters;Karlee,who works with the school Headstart Programs, Krista ,who works in
her architectural and commercial design fields, and Kyle , who is a Dental Assistant. We
are very proud of them and the 5 beautiful grandchildren they have given us.
My Education:Went to Methodist College in Fayetteville,NC majoring in Elem.Ed.
My Career:Put the teaching on hold in 1971 when my sister,LuLu, and I went to
Kissimmee,FL to open with Disney World. (Now THAT was an education !)When my
daughters came along I was a stay at home mom until they were in school. At that time I
went back to work with classes of gifted as well as classes of challenged students. I think
one thing I hold most important at this time was my work with The Adam Walsh
Society's "Safety with Strangers" program. I went to all the elem. schools in the county
and taught children how to react should they be approached by a stranger. After moving
to TN in 1990, I went to work for, and retired from, Pillsbury/General Mills with 20 years
How I spend my free time:Time for myself, when permissible , involves working on my
bucket list with two items of which I was able to cross off my list last summer. Now don't
think I'm crazy, but all my life , due to my fondness of animals, I have always wanted to
hug and kiss a baby camel. Her cheek was as soft as cashmere. (OK ,so maybe I am
weird, but I loved it.) The second item I crossed off my list is writing a children's book.
My cousin, a commercial artist, did the illustrations. I have sent it out and written two
sequels. Now we wait...either way,I have done it. In this category I must mention the
most fulfilling and important thing to me in my life is family. Luckily they are all near
and we spend much quality time together. Annual get-togethers on the holidays are a
"givin" and the superbowl is always a biggie as we have so many different allegiances.
Good times-good fun!
Other comments:The last thing I would like to share with you, if you're still awake, is
one I am especially proud of. I have always taught God's Love and have been
wonderfully blessed to have all three of our girls accept the Lord and live their lives for
Him. What more could you want for your family ? I have kept in touch with lifelong gal-
pals Lee Anstey and Shirley Green , but want you to know I will always be thankful for
having known all of you. Thanks for the memories. Go Canes!!

                   1979, we were both divorced and neither one of us were
looking for a commitment. We had so much in common and became really good firends
that in 1982 we married. We have one son, Jason who is 27 and he has a 5 year old son

change in 1982 and took a job with a Home Health Nursing Service-Interim Health Care
as Administrator in Tampa, Fl. Afer 18 years if traveling, dealing with the federal
government in regards to Medicare and Medicaid, and having private insurance
companies dictate the type and length of care a patient could receive, I had enough. Once
again I found myself making a career change, this time I chose a less stressful & family
owned business in Sarasota, Florida. Vista Products, we manufacture window treatments

a 42 ft. sail boat out of the Bradenton Yacht Club, every April we enter a sailing race
from St.Pete to Mexico. I enjoy cooking, entertaining, travel but most of all just having
fun. Infact I like to do almost any thing!!! In 2008 I took up kick boxing, I may be the
oldest in the class but I bet I have the most fun. Reason behind my new hobby is I have
vowed not to grow old gracefully. I plan to kick and scream all the way to my grave.
Other comments:At our age we all realize that life is getting shorter but it wasn't until
my husband died that I really thought much about our life line. I awake every morning
and embrace every moment of that day, the old saying "life is to short" is true. I have not
let this sadness in my life get me down but have used it as a learning tool. Enjoy each and
every day of life and most of all be happy!!!!

                  Spouse:Married to Ron for 32 years with 2 children
                  and 3 grandchildren.
                  Personal:Ron and I met at work. It was dis-like at first
                  sight. He looked like a frat-rat and I was a committed
non-establishment protester. We married 4 years later. Ron sold his glass and mirror
business 10 years ago and has been very active in property investments. But like others in
the property business these days, he's semi-retired. Our son Paul (21) is attending Stetson
University in Deland. Paul is over 6’2 and loves basketball but plays all intermural sports
in college representing his fraternity. He's a talented singer/guitar player and enjoys
writing and recording his music. He's studying Finance and Statistics and is interning
with UBS in Sarasota this summer. Will be looking for a job next year if anyone has need
for a perfect young man. Early in our marriage we were blessed to raise Ron’s daughter
Suzanne (now 39) who is now an elementary school teacher, as is her husband. They
have 3 children, Patrick, age 19, Lindsey, age 5, and baby Ella, 18 months. Fortunately
they live in Manatee County!
My Education:I attended MCC and then graduated from University of Texas in Austin
with a degree in English. Have attended University of Denver for specific certifications in
My Career:After managing a country club on Lake Travis outside of Austin, Tx for
several years, I was homesick and returned to Bradenton taking the first job that came
along at the small cable TV operation. It was a paycheck! Within a few years I was
named Vice President and General Manager and 36 years later, I’m still there. I’ve
survived 5 or 6 mergers and acquisitions and each change was very positive so that now I
work for one of the premier cable/high speed Internet access/digital phone companies in
the world Bright House Networks. I love what I do because it’s always a challenge to
keep up the phenomenal changes that have occurred in the communications industry.
Retirement? Not yet........
How I spend my free time:Spare time? My favorite activity is reading and I'm a
founding member of a book group that meets monthly. I'm an active participant in many
facets of community work and serve on boards with St. Stephen's Episcopal School, the
South Florida Museum, Manatee County Chamber of Commerce, the Manatee Library
Foundation, and Whitney National Bank. Time spent with our grandchildren is very
precious and special and we are so fortunate that they live in Manatee County. We
particularly love family time spent at our cottage in the Smokey Mountains. As
retirement comes into view, Ron and I are committed to resuming our golfing - but so far
we haven't accomplished that goal.

                 Personal:Harry and I met April of '65 at the Drumstick
                 Drivein! Our first actual date was the Ingenue Dance!
We dated off and on for almost 5 years before marriage. His fire department career was
30 years (he took early retirement and fished a lot!). In the 60's/70's there was no such
thing as a woman firefighter (or I would have been one) so I worked as a volunteer and
fought many house fires and Wickes Lumber Co. fire here in Bradenton. Had a BLAST
DOING IT TOO! The Lord blessed us with a beautiful daughter, Shalene, on our 9th
wedding anniversary. From then on family life took priority in our marriage and living
the "fire department life". Once the 3 of us made a hospital visit to a 5 yr. old girl whom
Harry had saved from a fully involved house fire. She was fine and Shalene connected to
her immediately. Although I love to laugh, thank goodness Shalene has his sense of
humor because I take myself way too seriously. Shalene is a graduate of Montreat
College, NC, with a BA and now has her Master's Degree from the University of
Georgia. Shalene lives in Commerce, GA, along with her "GA Red Bone Hound Dog"
Rowdy, and she is Childrens' Advocate for Project Safe, Inc. in Athens, GA. She councils
teenagers, children and their families.
My Education:My degree is from Massey Business College and have taken loads of
courses, seminars and "schools" throughout my life including a certification course to be
a Court Appointed Guardian in the State of Florida.
My Career:I own my own business, Bill Pay Solution and More!, which helps people
with financial and secretarial tasks specializing in helping the elderly. Past experiences
include Certified Guardian for the State of Florida (current also), administrative assistant
for Minister of Music at a local church, office and retailing management.
How I spend my free time:My home is on the Braden River so, of course fishing is very
enjoyable as are boat rides! I enjoy gardening, various creative arts, sing with Jubliee
Singers, sign (ASL)to music, read and spend time with family and friends. Traveling is
fun too!
Other comments:I never left Bradenton except to travel some (Love NYC!). I spend
much of my time doing volunteer work. Am an Elder in the Presbyterian Church USA as
well as a Stephen Minister. Life is good. God is so gracious to us from beginning to end.

the industry and became a Manufactures Representative. I owned my own rep firm until
2002. I represented over 20 firm in that time frame. That allowed me to do alot of
traveling in my territory of North Florida and to visit my manufactures in various parts of
the world. Best trip was a visit to the Vitra factory in Basal, Switzerland and Italy. (They
paid.) In 2002 I got tried of being gone from home so much and closed my rep company.

review and approve or not all of the construction that happens in the Historic Districts in
the city. You can not build in a Historic District without our approval. It is a volunteer
position and involves about 20 hours a month.

                  Personal:Married Paul Morgan in 1967. We had been
                  childhood friends since both of us were three years old.
We had two beautiful children, Eric born in 1970 and Stephanie born in 1972.
Unfortunately, we should have remained friends and divorced in 1973. Eric who will be
40 in October resides in Orlando and is a CADD designer with Cuhaci and Petersen, an
architectural firm. He is married to his lovely wide Ada, and have no children, but do

went back to school.
My Career:The highlight of my career was owning my own executive suite and
secretarial service in Orlando for 16 years. I thoroughly loved being my own boss and
had a very successful business until technology and times rendered it a dinosaur. I
returned to Bradenton in January 2004 and am currently employed at the Greater Sarasota
Chamber of Commerce and am delighted with the work I do there as their Membership
How I spend my free time:I do volunteer work - mostly with animals or children. I was
an active volunteer while in Orlando with Canine Companions for Independence which
provides assistance dogs for the mentally challenged and the physically handicapped.
That was a very rewarding experience. And although I talk about it, I haven't yet
contacted Southeastern Guide Dogs, to get involved with them. I do volunteer on
Wednesday nights at the Juvenile Detention Center and minister to the girls. The rewards
of that are immeasurable. I just have had the pleasure of adding an Imperial Shih Tzu to
my family and his name is Nick (he was born on Christmas Day) and is currently 5-1/2
months old. I haven't told Nick yet, but I also just purchased a female who will be ready
to go the middle of July and when she is old enough I will be breeding them. Stay tuned.

SafeCard offered Jim a job as VP of IS so we moved to Cheyenne. We stayed there for
five years and had an absolutely wonderful time. We made some wonderful friends and
as a result, we have a lot of company now. Currently, I work as an operations manager
for Attorneys' Title Insurance Fund, Inc.

                   Personal:Michael and I met at Horsefeathers Restaurant on Main Street
                   in Sarasota at 12 am New Year's 1982 while he was on vacation.
                   Michael grew up in Andover, MA, and has a very noticeable Boston
                   accent. (Secret > I thought he was an actor! My Dad thought he was
Mafia!) We married in the fall of 1984 and I moved to New England, specifically Rye,
NH, on the Atlantic Ocean. Chris is my eldest, is a 2008 graduate of George Washington
University in DC, is currently enrolled at The Georgetown University Graduate School.
He and his college sweetheart, Ashley, were married last August (2010) in St. Michaels,
Maryland, on the Chesapeake Bay. They live in Arlington, VA. Natale, my younger, is a
2009 graduate of Keene State College in NH and is the Office Administrator for the
Seacoast Career School in Manchester, NH. She enjoys being a social butterfly and globe
trotting. She's also my boomerang child. :-)
My Education:After graduation, I attended Manatee College. At age 20, I moved to
Sarasota where I called home until coming to New England. During my working
career(s), I have been licensed as a Master Cosmetologist, certified as an Estetician and
Make Up Artist, and held an insurance license and operated Stanhope & Associates in
Sarasota prior to moving to New England.
My Career:After 16 years as an at-home Mom, I re-entered the administrative
management profession in 2000, joining Edward Jones (Investments) in the Hooksett,
NH, Branch Office. In 2006 and again in 2010, I accepted a limited partnership and am
enjoying being an owner in my firm.
How I spend my free time:I love to watch movies, especially comedy, am an avid
reader of books, periodicals, and the Wall Street Journal, of course! I love to flower
garden, which in New England means a few weeks of the year. I also love to work out on
weights. Working full time leaves little time for much else.
Other comments:I fondly remember so many of you and some amazing times we
shared, and all the laughs. I think of you often. And now we are all wondering where did
the years go!

                    Personal:Met him on a trip to visit family the summer after we
                    graduated - over 43 years and he's still my best friend. Two daughters,

My Education:Couple of years of college ...lots of extra classes.
My Career:I was a VISTA volunteer when children were young - actually was just given
a nice award/proclamation from state of Vermont for "pioneering in child care in the state
of Vermont". I've done things from being a VISTA volunteer to Managing the bookstore
for Williams College to 12 years working for the J. Paul Getty Trust's "Art and
Architecture Thesaursus" and 9 years being in charge of the Language Lab in the Center
for Foreign Languages, Literatures, and Cultures at Williams College. Left that 3 years
ago in favor of hiring and working with Williams students who run Williams' reunion and
two or three other big events here at the school leaving us the winter to spend in
Bradenton.Two years ago we took the leap and bought a condo in Bradenton where we
spent the winter for the first time this year. We were there for Christmas - this year we fly
home for a few weeks in December to spend the holidays with our family. Recently have
decided it's time to just step away from working as much...we'll see how that goes.
How I spend my free time:We golf - I'm horrid but I love it -here when we can and
since this past winter, there too. I used to spend a lot of time dreaming about being back
on the island and the beaches and now that we get to spend a good portion of the year
there I still do...what a hoot! This next winter the plan is to do some exploring all over the
state and play a lot more golf!
Other comments:I love the've done a great job. Have a great time at
Reunion...I'll be thinking about you all.

                  Personal:Chris and I met in Mrs. Parrish's English
                  class. I remember him sitting one row over and two
seats up from me! We started dating the end of our Senior year. And, that date has lasted
a long time....Presently, after 14 homes throughout a 24 year career in the Air Force, we
live in Virginia; and, never want to move again! Our daughter, Tina, is married to a
newly retired Naval Officer. He is now employed as an electrical engineer for a NASA
contractor. They have 3 terrific children (Amanda, 12 yrs. old and loves horseback riding;
Joey, 9 yrs. old and is a Brown Belt in Taek Won Do; and Peter 8 yrs. old and an
excellent gymnast! ). They have lived from Virginia to California. Thankfully, their last
duty station was here, and this is where they have retired. It's awesome to watch a new
generation of your family grow up. Our son, Lance, is employed by Ferguson
Enterprises. He is in the management/sales division. His job is based in Port St. Lucie,
Florid! a. He loves Florida, and will be there as long as Ferguson will let him. Chris and I
visit Bradenton and Anna Maria every summer, and then we travel to the other coast to

My Education:After graduating from Manatee High, I graduated from MJC, then U of
FL with a degree in Elem. Ed. Eventually I received my Master's degree from Old
Dominion University. My best and most worthwhile degree, however, was being a mom.
My Career:As an Air Force wife, I was able to teach in many states & countires! The
states/countries were Miss.,Okla.(where our daughter was born,) Athens, Greece,
Missouri...Kansas City (where our son was born) and St. Louis, Florida (Orlando and Ft.
Walton Beach), Mannheim, Germany, and for the past 14 years, Seaford, VA. While at
Seaford, I coached Odyssey of the Mind teams for 9 years. Four of my teams were able to
compete at World Competition. Presently, I am the principal of a private Baptist School. I
love every minute of it. It still excites me to be part of children's education. Some day I
know I will grow out of it...or maybe, just grow up! Update: I retired totally in 2007. I
decided it was time for me to dedicate time to myself. My first and foremost initiative
was to get in shape! Therefore, I joined a gym and spend 3 - 4 times a week trying to look
like I did 40 years ago (ha ha)!
How I spend my free time:Hobbies...bicycling, boating, swimming, fishing in the
Chesapeake as well as the Virginia Mountain waters. Our favorite place to go is a
beautiful lodge in Millboro Springs, VA on the Cowpasture River. Don't laugh. That is
what it is called. It's peaceful and fun. What more could a person ask for?
Other comments:I can hardly wait for our reunion. Looking at the pictures that are on
the web site bring back great thoughts and memories. Some of us have known one
another for many years. What fun it will be to reminisce and get "caught up" on our lives
as parents and grandparents.

                    My Education:BA in Fine Arts, Eckerd College, 1969; MFA in Textile
                    Arts, California College of Arts and Crafts, 1975; Certificate in Historic
Preservation, University of North Carolina at Greensboro, 2009.
My Career:As of 2009, I'm still an artist, still doing murals but I have a rep now and am
doing large drawings of farm animals. I also do custom artwork and fabrics for designers.
I write about architectural history as a sideline.
How I spend my free time:I live in an 1825 Federal farmhouse which I will be restoring
until I die (it's very slow). Am a Quaker in the local Friends' Meeting. Serve as secretary

Other comments:I am REALLY INTERESTED in my classmates. When I was in high
school my dad had just died and the whole three years I was pretty much out of things.
Now I wonder what happened back then and who else was there? It's a gap I regret.
