I attended my Freshman and part of my sophomore year
at Awalt, before my family moved and I finshed high
school at Homestead. All the memories...such a great
school. I enjoyed my Russian class with Mr. Mankowski,
and English with Mr. Birdsall. Many years later I was
in Seattle on a sleepy Sunday morning looking for
something to do in the newspaper and came across a
gallery listing for a Byron how many
Byron Birdsalls can there be? So we took the time to
check out the showing and of course it was the very
same person. Evidently he moved to Alaska and became a
well known fact one of his pieces was on
the cover of the Anchorage phone book.
A few years ago my home burned and all of my yearbooks
went up too so I have no resource for remembering
except my fading memories...37(!)years takes it's
toll. Well, if any of you recollect me I would love to
hear from you...and if you know where Joanne Marino,
or Nancy Marshall or Traude von Steht are now please
tell them to contact me, OK?

To be succint, am happily married, two grown kids and
two grand children. I work as an IT Manager in Santa
Cruz (although I hope to retire in 2011).

Current passions include music, tennis, photography,
personal homeremodeling and motorcycle touring.

As for music I notonly love to listen, but also have a
band I play in. I play saxophones, clarinet and
percussion. Not bad for someone who didn't start
playing music until way after high school.

I also started playing tennis after high school and
have not only played in more than 250 USTA matches for
my tennis club, but have also captained 13 teams,
taking 4 to playoffs.

I find my real spiritual self when sailing
however. I took up racing rather athletic small
sailboats 15 years ago and though physically and
mentally demanding, i find a real inner peace when on
the water. Never was much of a surfer because i prefer
to be on the water not in it :^)
I just went bigboat sailing with Rusty Sabella, my
best friend through high school, even though he was
Los Altos '65, lead singer of "The Fugitives" you may
recall. We hadn't seen each other in nearly 30 years!
wow, hard to believe.
I hope all is well with everyone, I have no complaints
and so much to be grateful for.

Can't believe it's been 40 yrs and I'm knocking hard on
60! I'm even a grandfather of twins! Was there a 40th
reunion? I attended the 20th, but missed #30.

Even though I was at Awalt for only 2 yrs, I made some
good friends and still have fond memories (well they're
not all fond!) of that time. After graduation, I went
to UCB, but was lonely, unhappy and disillusioned what
with the war, the draft, etc. I dropped out after a
year and a half and spent almost the next 20 yrs as a
woodworker designing and building, ultimately ending
with a small cabinet and fine furniture making business.

Career #2 began with taking some classes at local jc's.
I swam for Laney College and also on a Master's team in
Berkeley for many years where I met my wife, Marcia. I
returned to UCB, but instead of studying architecture
as everyone thought I would, I got a degree in
molecular biology. This led to some interesting work
including electron microscopy, work on the Human Genome
Project, some cancer research and looking for genes
that may be involved in alcoholism.

Career #3 was a radical departure into the automotive
world. I bought a dynamometer with which I can measure
a car's performance, tune them (usually for max power)
and test various devices I design and build. I do quite
a bit of computer simulation of airflow over car bodies
and through intake and exhaust systems. I'm currently
building an engine that will reside in a Porsche to
challenge the 253 mph speed posted by the Bugatti
Veyron. I'm also working with a friend to form a
company that will do automotive R&D, build race cars
for ourselves and customers, experiment with new
materials and processes, etc. Also working on several
ideas that might even make some money!!

And now there's a concurrent career that grew out of my
wife having a stroke last year. It has been a brutally
difficult and sad year and a half and our lives have
changed dramatically. Marcia is recovering slowly,
having progressed from not being able to sit upright to
walking (with some assistance still). We're working
very hard to bring more life back to her left arm and
hand. Due to some major deficiencies in the Kaiser
system, I've had to manage Marcia's recovery and learn
a great deal about physical and occupational therapy.
I've also made hand splints since there are so few
decent ones available comercially. My heart has been
torn apart from the devastation I've seen in Marcia's
life and the lives of many other stroke victims I've
met. To see someone go from "normal" function to
paralysis and mental impairment overnight is just
incomprehensible to me. As a result, I'm considering
getting a PT degree in hope of helping some of these
folks recover what was so suddenly and cruelly stolen
from them.

I see Steve Kessler periodically at the Berkeley Bowl
Market. I've wondered what happened to some of my other
chums, Jon Nelson (glad to see he's on the list), Linda
Lee, Robbie Halstrom, Pete Rowe, Dave Hargrove, Bill
Greene, John Hottendorf, Fred Klein, Diane McLoughlin,
Judy Moore, Barry Smith, Bob Sproule, my old doubles
partner Dave Trowbridge, Chuck Wade... Looking through
my musky old yearbook I was surprised at how many
claassmates I did not know.

It would be wonderful if a reunion were to magically

After Awalt I went to UCSB and graduated in 1970. I
attended SJ State college for a year and then married
Uli Siebeneick. We lived in Germany (his home) for
eight years where our 2 children were born. Markus is
now 31 and Mieke is 26. We moved to New Jersey
shortly after Mieke's birth. I worked at various
jobs for the Catholic church, the Seeing Eye and now
the American Red Cross. Uli and I moved to the
Monterey Peninsula in 2003 and love being back in CA.
Mieke is married and living in NJ. This year we
became grandparents. That is an awesome experience.
It's just too bad they live in NJ.

2010 update: We just had our second grandchild this
summer. What a blast. Love the little ones.
Unfortunately, Mieke and Kevin moved to NC so we don't
see them as much as we would like. Markus is still in
San Francisco so we get to see him every couple of
months. Uli and I love living by the Monterey Bay.
He sails and works at the great Aquarium. I docent at

Well, Steve Swanson & wife flew in from Portland, Or;

Louisville, Kentucky. We have been married now for 33
years and have 2 grown children and 3 grandchildren. I
left show biz and went into mechanical design work in
1973. I continued to teach dance in San Jose part time

daughter 8 months), and our daughter (28) is living in
Anaheim Hills with her husband and daughter (1). She
just ended 5 years working for Disneyland in the

Alot has changed in my life this past couple of years.
My mother died on December 6, 2003 after a long
illness, and it was a tough time. I had been
looking into relocating to the Beaverton, Oregon area
when she died. I retired from my position as a
Public Safety Dispatcher with the Twin Cities Police
Department in Marin County on February 1, 2004, after
a 23-year career that I loved. I now have a beautiful
home in Beaverton, with wonderful neighbors and
gorgeous scenery. I worked at AAA for 11 months part
time as a call taker (hard work!), got bored, and now
work full-time again as a Booking Clerk in the
Washington County Jail. Guess I wasn't quite ready for
retirement after all. I finally graduated from college
last December with a BS in Emergency Management from
Cal State Long Beach, thanks to an amazing Distance
Learning Program they created for law-enforcement
people who do shift work. Attending my graduation with
my daughter last May was one of the great highlights
of my life!

My daughter, Wendy, is a Project Manager with Blue
Shield in San Francisco and has already passed the
dreaded 40 - YIKES! She is beautiful, funny, happy,
healthy, and I am very proud of her.

Don't know if we had a reunion last Summer. Would love
to see everyone again and catch up. I enjoy working
around my house, traveling, and getting together with
friends and family. And when I grow up I want to
be....well that keeps changing. Hope everyone is well
and happy!

her very much. Believe it or not I'm way clean.
No alcohol, drugs nor smoke make its way inside me but
shit, I still swear.

Three great sons. Brian, Kevin and Quinn. Heard those

people for certain special assignments within the US
Government. Quinn lives in Hollywood and works in the
film industry. He is moving up in the ranks of that
very odd industry. Some day you'll see his name before
the movie starts instead of towards the rear of the

Hi Guys
After Awalt I went to Foothill for a couple of years.
Then enlisted in the Army from 68 to 71, with two tours
overseas. Got back and was married with one son and a
daughter on the way. Guess what I just went back to
being a carpenter while I finish my education at
Stanford, Boulder and San Jose. More education than I
have ever used.

Got divorced in 1975 and remarried a couple of years
later. My wife Colleen and I will celebrate our 34th
anniversary next month.

I stayed in San Jose for almost 35 years and after 23
years in the building trades I finally used my
education and took a job at Applied Materials as their
Global Construction Manager. I got to travel way to
much but built some great buildings.

I retired in 2002 and relocated to a 10 acre parcel in
Anderson Ca. Just about 9 miles east of Redding.
Having fun fishing and running the Tax Payers
Association up. Work when I feel like which isn't much.

Have not heard from anyone from Awalt since I got back
from the service. Would love to hear from you now.

After graduating, attended San Jose State for a year
before transfering to Stanford. Traveled around the
world for a year, then started graduate school in
Buddhist Studies, finally ending up with a Ph.D. in
the field from U.C. Berkeley.

Taught at Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley for
over 15 years and served as Buddhist priest for 3
years in the bay area before getting a job as tenured
professor at a university in Tokyo, Japan, where we
now live. I love my job.

Imagine, a Japanese American teaching Buddhism to
Japanese students in a country where most of the
people are nominally Buddhists! What an intersting
world we live!I am on sabbatical this year, writing a
book in Japanese on "Buddhism in America"!

I return to California at least twice a year,
spending part of the summer at our house that we kept
in El Cerrito, next to Berkeley. This summer I took
our youngest, a 16 year old daughter, to Awalt. She
was impressed by the campus.

We have two other kids (boys), graduated
college (Harvard) two years ago (and now community
activist trying to "save the world") and another
going to college on the East
Coast (Tufts Univ.). The youngest is still a junior,
which means I
still have 6 years of tuition paying.

I've been wanting to connect up with the class of 66
for some time now, so am happy to be able to send
this in. Should any of you remember me and want to
connect up, I would love to hear from you. And once I
am accepted on this listing, I'll be able to connect
with some of your personally.

40 years is a long time, but some memories are
fresh. I enjoyed learning about those of you with
postings. Best wishes to you all.

April 9, 2001, my wife Angie gave birth to twins, a
girl, Brooke Elizabeth and a boy, Matthew David.

Twins update. January 23, 2004, my wife Angie gave
birth to a second set of twins, two boys, William and
Samuel. That's right, a second set of twins! We are
blessed, but busy.

We live in San Francisco and enjoy the City life, but
often visit my Mom in Mt. View who is in good health
and still lives in the same house across from Awalt
where I lived when there.

I attended the Awalt water polo team reunion last
spring (May 2008). It was great to see classmates and
teammates Cliff McGuire, Marc Larivee, Stan Weiss,
Gary Sherer and others. Some of those guys are still
in pretty good shape and more funny than ever.

I don't play water polo any more, but I took up rugby
while in law school at Stanford. That has been my
main hobby since and I still play now and then.

I do commercial real estate investing. It is kinda of
like playing Monopoly with real money and I love it.
Retirement could never be this much fun.

Hello All.
Jim Amato here, Pat's brother, class of '69.
My sister passed away today, having fought a battle
with liver cancer for the past 6/7 years. She whipped
it the first time, using alternative methods at
first, then having 83% of her liver removed (only
organ that regenerates, who knew?), to become at the
time cancer free. As I'm sure most of you know, once
it has you it doesn't let go easily, and it came
raging back about 6 months ago. She fought it hard
again, but this time it was not to be denied, and she
died peacefully with family around.
I wanted to let you all know the times she had with
the class doing the reunion dinners and reunions were
some of the best times of her life, and she truly
appreciated your friendship. I know she would want me
to let all of you know this news, and the fact that
she had a very strong faith that enabled her to cope
with this battle. I'm sorry to share this news, but
wanted you all to know. Please send up a good thought
to her, and have a cheerful moment on the day you
read this, Pat would like that.
Jim Amato

Hi, Everyone out there in Cyber-post-Awalt-Land! Once
again inspired by Dewey's great writing, I am tearing
a page from his book, and deleting the Olde and
ringing in the new! (Although I'm sure many of you
suffering from Scrolling finger..[like tennis elbow,
only lower]due to my former Bio, wish that I would
tear a page from Dan VanSciver's book instead...)
Trying to examine WHY I'm having such a grand time
with all my newly discovered Awalt acquaintances...
(after only 3 reunion pre-parties and a few e-mails,
feel closer now than I was during my 2yrs at Awalt)...
I think I can conclude that out of an abundant
appreciation of every one of life's blessings, the
greatest Is love; friendships, relationships,
connections between people; what could be more joyous
or fulfilling in life? You won't want to miss out on
these re-connections!! They are so fun!!Dewey
even came all the way from Washington to our last El
Toritos pre-party, and considered it well worth it!
(And I can Report that his humorously self-disparaging
though Highly Entertaining Bio of late, was a
prevarication of the first order. When I called him
out on his reference to the Hair Club for Men, he had
to cram his chin into his sternum and I had to stand
on my chair to see any skin amongst his original
locks; and if they are gray it's only because he's
cheaper than we female alumni...) So, cancel the
Cable and start brewing your own coffee, buy one-ply,
drive right on by Blockbuster's; do whatever it takes
to come up with the plane fare; and hurry your check
to Jan by the 7th!! (It's the least we can do, short
of becoming a Southwest Air Stewardess like Pat
McNelis Schader did in June just to get a free
ticket) Sure, there's a tiny few who are still tiny,
and a few who haven't earned any wrinkles yet, but
don't let that make you miss out on these wonderful
renewals of life! Don't think of this Reunion as a
Fete worse than death... think of it as a Dinner to
dye for, and Run to the nearest Postbox with your
check! Aren't you curious about how a Doctor of
Jurisprudence could be so concise?!(Master of Briefs
as well as Pilot?) Or Who became involved with
Interpol, tracing an international plane heist (ask
him how much That cost!) And don't you want to meet
again all the "first" girls in Bob Mac.'s life, and
chat with our Tibetan-Irish-Japanese-Chinese-Spanish-
Italian-flavored Texan; and learn the secret charms
Gail Eckel and Terry Roselli?(What does D.W. know
we don't?)Inquiring minds should want to know! I
personally can't wait!! See you ALL Soon I hope!!!

Bob Birdsall is a logger up in Idaho, not currently on
the Internet. However, in the interests of our running
competition with the upstart class of ‘69,one of the
many classes he has sibling representation in, he has
agreed to have a quick Bio entered.
Bob has done a lot of different jobs, including work
as a carpenter, in the mines, fishing: river, and
Alaskan, logging, etc. He had his stint with horses
and cattle and is definitely Finished with them! (I
smell a good story here!) He has raised a family and a
half, and been through a divorce. Hopefully by now he
has a new Love Interest. His logging jobs take him
into the back-country. If you've ever wanted to be a

to miss him when he leaves for school!
My husband remains very busy with his job at Boeing,

I am still in contact with Donna, Pat and Sonja.

Hey, I've just turned 60 and I still have all my black
hair!! Still involved with the collecting of classical
music on vinyl...3800 LPs and 10" EPs and counting. I
read voraciously, still with Arnold Schoenberg as my
major emphasis....but that includes Mahler, Wassily
Kandinsky, Franz Marc, Bruno Walter, Otto Klemperer,
and many others. Schoenberg seemed to know about
everyone involved in the arts for the first half of the
20th century. His "Theory on Harmony" is his opus. I've
read it countless times.... will probably continue
doing so in the future.

Be sure to check out the web site, if you're curious
about what the truly committed will do to achieve
musical nirvana!

The 40th reunion was terrific! Thanks for welcoming me
even though I moved to Chicago in the middle of our
junior year. My heart was always at Awalt.
I left the Chicago area as soon as possible after
graduation and hit the road in a van with some other
folks. Later ended up in Portland, Or. where I met my
husband of 32 years.
After 20 years as a commercial insurance underwriter I
decided to go low stress, retire and drive special
needs school bus for the local school district. The
kids put life and love in a whole new perspective.
It was wonderful seeing all of you. Mr Cook is still

It seems like we just met in Sunnyvale for our 50th
birthday party. It was so nice to see everybody in
that context, and now we're about to do it again.

I was sad to learn that Pat Amato had finally left us,
but happy for her. As unnerving as the cancer had
been, she was psyched to be off to the next chapter
of her life with God. Good-bye to Tom Duncan, too.

Our kids are settled into their own lives, Katherine
(and two wild-women grandaughters)
in Los Altos, Zach in Massachusetts, and Steph in New
Hampshire; and that's a lucky thing. Two out of three
so close is a lucky break.

Love you all, "We were young together!"

Guy (Awalt class of '66) and I celebrated our 30th
wedding anniversary in Maui this year. I don't feel
as old as that sounds! We are enjoying life
thoroughly and look forward to another 30 years!

Our son, Blair, is still at Biola University in La
Mirada finishing his credential and master's
programs. He's 23 and enjoys living in the L.A. area.

We weren't able to come to the reunion in July but
enjoy hearing about it and seeing pictures. One of
these years...

Guy is president of HRH Insurance in Fresno and still
works real hard. When he hears of people our age
retiriing, he gets a little wistful, but he's not
ready for that yet! I work part time with
kindergarteners. I enjoy that very much but sure

WOW, how do you answer that question, "what have you been doing
since graduation?"

The short version, been married twice and have 2 daughters and (2
grand kids) 2/10/08 now 5 Grand Kids Including a set of twins added
December 2007. I have tried my hand at many occupations, that have
basically always revolved around sales and marketing.

I currently own and am President of Hydro Stream Performance Boats.
We manufacture both family recreational boats and race products. The
plant is in Maryville, TN outside Knoxville, where I spend a couple of
weeks per month. We currently hold 2 World Championships winning
2006 and 2007 ODBA Super Comp Titles and also many High Points
Championships around the country. My wife Pamela and I live in
Alameda and have a second home in Byron, CA out in the delta. We
now also have a place in Cabo, we just got from last week.

Pamela is the Infiniti dealer in Oakland and we have been married
almost 22 years. We both love travel and plan a major trip somewhere
in the world annually, with smaller trips every couple months.
This year, 2005, we went to Thailand, Cambodia (The ruins at Angkor
Watt), and Bhutan (for Spring Festival). We have travel much of Asia,
and have plans for Europe over the next few years. 2007 we finally
made it to Italy, part pleasure, part business. Our company now has a
European Distributor outside Milan. We loved Italy and hope to visit at
least annually. Next we will be traveling to Turkey this spring to add a
distributor for the middle east.

My life has become something I never considered, in high school I was
a class clown who refused to take on responsibility, today I run my
own company that hold multiple World Championships and World
Records and manufactures a product that is distributed around the
world. Who would have thought!

Basically life is good, like all of us I have some regrets but overall I
have been lucky to develop good friends, and financial security that
allows Pam and I to do most of the things we desire.

I hope the class of '67 finds itself content with life, but with a spirt to
grow and experience the world.

Hello All,

Unfortunately, I believe I will miss the reunion due
to scheduling conflicts.

However, Jan asked us to turn in some pictures and I
have sent along my daughter Shelby's picture. She is
5 years old and will be entering kindergarden in
August. Does this classify me as having the youngest
child of our class ? I am sure all of you are empty
nesters by now, so you can imagine my concern when
this beautiful girl enters high school, any clues ?

Picture I sent:

take care

Immediatly after graduation, I enlisted in the
U.S. Army (to avoid the draft) & in January of 68
through Dec.69 found myself in Viet Nam serving with
the 25th Infantry Division out of Cu Chi (the land of
tunnels), so much for missing the draft and
the "Nam". Received two Purple Hearts for wounds
that I received, but only have some scars,
nothing to harmful; as well as a Bronze Star (in my
mind for being a little over zealous, as a squad
leader). Went on to Foothill Jr.College (had a delay
of almost a year during my first year due to a
serious automobile accident, Tom Long of our class
unfortunatly died of his injuries) & then on to CSU
Chico and recived my BS in Accounting. Worked as an
Account and as Asst. Controller and later Controller
from 1977 to the end of 1996 for numerous firms over
the years, including Hills Bros. Coffee, KRON TV and
Broderbund Software.

But in 1996 I went to a VA Outreach Clinic to
volunteer for some tests (reserching Viet Nam Veterans
years later, with the University of San Francisco).I
was diagnosed with suffering from several ailments
form my stint over in Asia in the 60's. On the bright
side I am quite well off financially now, and am not
working due to my Veterans Adminstration pension (I
have been classified at 150 % disabled, with Post
Tramatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Tramatic Brain
Injury (TBI), Diabetes due to the Agent Orange that
was used in the late 60's, and I suffer a loss of
normal hearing without hearing aids). And I also
receive Social Security Disabitly benefits which will
both be paid to me for the rest of my life!

I have a 30 year old son, a graduate of UCLA who is
working in the music field in LA, has played as a
member of the backup band for the likes of Quincy
Jones & Barbra Striesand and composes music, for
which some has been published; And he enjoys being a
studio mucician as well! I am married with my 3rd
wife and by far the greatest woman that I ever have
met for 12+ years now, another true hippie from the
60's. We live in the small village of Glen Ellen in
Sonoma County, up here in the Wine Country of
Northern California, a mix of the old hippie types as
well as some of the Dot Com survivors who I refer to
as the yuppies, a couple of famous rock Musicians
live in town, Michael MacDonald of the Doobie
Brothers is a neighbor.....very peaceful and quite a
small town to live, population just broke 1,000 last
year(we have a 1 1/2 acres of land with a large
house, including a Barn, my 4 dogs love the land,it
all brings me nothing but happiness. Ever tried our

Concerning my disabilities, thanks to all you; but I
am doing just fine and get about quite well though I
have to use a walking cane for long distances but
other than that I am physically fine...thanks again.
Just a lot of Diabetes medication as well as the good
old all does me just fine.

I am an East Sider of San Jose now and have been for
30 yrs. Met my husband David that long ago and
started working in his family business, a "GREAT"
Bakery, Peters' Bakery on Alum Rock Ave. We are now
running it after the loss of his dad Tony at age 88.
The tradition goes on and after 68 yrs, we still have
great eclairs and cakes. Our son Max (25) Has
graduated frm Long Beach State in Psy. and creative
writing. Not working in either field but at least is
working. I graduated with a degree in sculpture from
Hayward St., cake decorating is just edible
sculpture. So I actually us my art degree. Also liked
victorian costuming so much that went back and got a
degree in fashion design at West Valley so I could
make the clothes. Now too much time at bakery and too
small of a house, leaves room for sewing and
designing cloth dolls and small quilts. Still love
making miniature room boxes, one is of the loby of
the bakery. But I live in the country in a forest and
can Bird Watch every day, just like my mom.

We moved in across the street from Barry Richardson,
down the street from Danny Cuneo, around the corner
from Ken Jaffe, Nolan Hubley, & Garrick Miyamoto, two
blocks from Steve Grubb, three blocks from Leslie
Prindle, four blocks from Pat Lent, Mike Doro, & Stan

in one piece, but the part of me that Diane married

I went to work for Longs Drugs in Antioch Ca., and was
working for them when my folks were transfered to the

On my first visit with them, I took one look around
Oregon, and turned in my notice to Longs & the Bay

flew with for five years until a little girl from
Indiana came along and settled me down.
Anna and I were married in '82, we had Ryan in '84,
and Juliana in '86.
I transfered to the printer division of H.P. in
Vancouver Wa. in '90 where we are now.
I became involved in the restoration of a 7ECA
Citabria airplane, which after resteration we flew to
the EAA convention in Oshkosh Wisconsin, twice. While
at the convention the second time, I fell in love with
a kit plane design called a "Van's RV-8", so after the
Citabria partnership broke up I started building my
own airplane in '99, and it is still a work in
process. To view the project go to and
look under Randy Griffin.
So I've been married to Anna for 22 years, been with
H.P. for 27 years, Ryan is at WSU, Juliana is at CWU,
the folks are still in Corvallis, and you are now up
to date with probably more information about me than
you ever wanted to know.

It's August, and both of our daughters our visiting
from the Northwest. My nephew from Colorado is living
with us for his first semester of high school. It's
fun to view the island through new and fresh eyes. It
reminds us of how lucky we are to live in the tropics!
I spent several weeks in Oregon this past summer
helping with the difficulties that come with aging
parents. It was bittersweet going through boxes of
memories, many from high school. Now, it's just a
matter of cataloging... If any of you are ever
traveling to the Western Pacific, come and visit!

Married 1971-2000. Have lived in Chico, CA, since 1985.
Took early retirement in 11/07. Just hit the big "6-
0". Enjoying the "slower" life. Haven't taking up any
volunteering as yet but the thought is there. Enjoying
reading a book in a day, hanging out with my old lady
cat, she's 16 years, and just relaxing. However, I
haven't been able to fill all my time - so my house is
cleaner than it's been in 40 years!
Spending time with my "grands" is my main joy. Sophia,
4 1/2 years, will be starting Kindergarten 8/09. Hope
to volunteer in her class like I did when her dad was
in school. William is 2 1/2 and is one goofy little
guy. Their dad is my son Mike.
My daughter, Katie, has been on disability since
12/26/06 after taking a fall down a flight of stairs
at work.No idea when she'll be able to return to work
or what she'll be able to do. She and her husband,
Eric, have been married since 2004. No "grands"
planned from that union.
Katie, Eric and I just returned from a 6500 miles, 16-
state trip to the Mid-West and some of the southern
states. What an magnificent country we live in and it
was a joy to see more of it.
One weird experience: had some rings fixed recently by
Pete Cuneo here in Chico, CA. Turns out Pete is the
little brother of Danny Cuneo! So - hey, there Danny.
Your brother is an awesome jeweler!!
If you ever get around the Chico, CA, area, please let
me know. We might not have been close at Awalt but we
do have that connection. God bless!

To compress 33 years into a few paragraphs is a real
challenge. And since I was never one to toot my own
horn, I will keep this short.

My life has had many interesting twists and turns in
it. After high school I attended college in Washington
State. I was far too immature, flunked out and came
limping back to California. I spent one year working at
Fairchild Semiconductor as a wafer etcher and decided I
had too much talent to do that for the rest of my life.

Over the next 15 years, I had a daughter, became a
Registered Nurse and traveled and worked in Europe and
parts of the US. Injuring myself lifting a patient
early on, I finally sought care from a Chiropractor and
liked alternative ways of healing so much that I
decided to change professions.

I spent have spent the last 15 years working as a
Chiropractor. I now have a multi-doctor facility that I
manage and continue to treat patients on a limited
basis. I've managed to salvage a good part of my sense
of humor even if I am almost a half a century old and I
have 3 granddaughters.

High school seems like so many life times ago. However,
many of you helped shape who I am now. And I'm not sure
if that is good or bad. Looking forward to seeing all
of you!

Presently 2004 I have purchased a retirement home in
Mendicino County right on the beach. It's a dream come
true. So in order to finance the place I have taken on
more responsibilities with my old profession Nursing.I
am continuing to work at my Chiropracti business in
Cupertino. I have been in training as a Forensic Nurse
for the County of Santa Clara and work part time as a
Hospice on call nurse. Doubt if I will see any
retirement for a long time with this new purchase.

Still here in Wildwood, now beginning my twelfth year
of teaching physics, my sixth at Parkway South High
School out here in the burbs. The school is great,
the kids are fantastic, and the faculty (especially
the science staff) could not be better.

Judie is in her 17th year as school counselor at
Green Pines Elementary and is talking more and more
of retiring. With all the kids and relatives "Out
West," the main thing holding us here is the jobs we

All four kids are doing fine. Tyleen now lives in
Monte Vista, Colorado, and Brett's in Denver. Marci
is in Escondido, but would like to move up to
Portland where Paul is now located. As you can see,
we're definitely "away," with the closest of the four
being a fourteen hour drive away.

Grandkid number four, Isaac Wesley Alan Stults, is
now in the picture. Takes after his sisters and
brother in the cutie-pie department, and I've got
pictures to prove it!

I'm not planning to attend our 40th reunion in person, but you can bet
I'll be there in spirit. I’m still happily living in Michigan with my
wonderful husband of 28 years.  Our daughter (an only child) is 21 and
attending college in San Francisco.  Life is very good.

I've changed my email address and am happy to report that
life is treating me well. I had a great time getting
reacquainted with some of you at the Sunnyvale Hilton Bar
on July 13, 2001. I had not attended an Awalt reunion since
1977 and will not be able to attend the all-Awalt reunions in
the summer of 2002. However, my husband, daughter and I
plan to visit the Bay Area in December 2002. I always look
forward to visiting my roots and wish all of us good health
and much happiness for many years to come.


I transferred to Tahoe Truckee High School for the last
semester of my senior year, but I have always identified with
my Awalt graduating class. Fresh out of high school, I
attended California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland,
California. I loved it, but I completed only one year. I was
an arts and crafts counselor for two summers '68 and '69)
and worked at a Girl Scout camp in the San Fernando
mountains. In between those summers I traveled to
Progreso, Yucatan, Mexico. Upon my return from Mexico, I
enrolled at Foothill College, tried U.C. Berkeley for a
semester, then returned to Foothill College and FINALLY
earned my 2-year AA degree in '71. I held various clerical
jobs in Silicon Valley, my favorite one being in the computer
center at Stanford University. I moonlighted as an artists
model and co- founded the Palo Alto Models Guild. I met my
future husband, an artist, in '75, we married in '79 and we
moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma in '80. Three days after our
daughter was born in '85, we moved to Joplin, Missouri. We
moved to Michigan in '89 and have lived here ever since.
Currently, I have the good fortune to be a homemaker and
volunteer (school district, church, and sometimes politics). I
switched my artistic creative outlet to writing after marriage
so that I could have an identity separate from my husband's.
Other hobbies include gardening, cooking, stamp collecting,
reading and walking.


By transferring to Tahoe Truckee High School for the last
semester of my senior year, I did not do as well as I would
have liked in the all-metropolitan fencing finals. I was not
around to get my Awalt yearbook signed, so I tore it up.


I remember Mike Benefiel (natural born leader, thanks for the
rides home from fencing practice!), Karen Cole (thanks for
letting me ride your horse!), Shelly Thompson (great humor!),
Marybeth Fogg (intelligent and funny, too!), Jennifer Gregg
(friendly), Marilyn Lambert (awesomely artistic!), Penny
Pingree (life-long friend), Joani Powell (my monopoly pal,
where are you now?), Olive Schad (fencing pal, friendship
renewed as a result of 32-year reunion plans), Pete Sneider
(talented pianist, lived down the street from me in high
school, had a beautiful collie named Sunny), Connie Tuttle
(nice, nice, nice), Tina and her beautiful long, blond hair. I
could probably remember more if my memory were jogged.

Time flies when you're having fun!

The Japan trip I mentioned in my last update (2006) is
a distant memory now, although I still sing in the
Rogue Valley Peace Choir and its associated smaller
group, the Ensemble. Singing feeds my soul.

Thanks to the down economy, I was able this year to buy
a condo in Ashland, Oregon. It's a great little place,
two bedrooms, two baths, just enough yard, all within
walking distance of work and downtown. Chewy (my dog)
and I are very happy here.

Reading the entries of others, it's clear that I am one
of the few still working. Have been at an educational
organization for over two years and love it. Retirement
is still a ways off for me but that's okay, as I have a
lot of energy!

where I'm going, but I'm on my way. - CARL SANDBURG

Hello Everyone,
I can't believe that I am 50 and back not only where I was raised but working for the Los Altos School District. I work as a psychologist at Egan Intermediate School.
To back up a bit, I attended Foothill and CSU Chico where I obtained my BA and MA in counseling psychology. I then worked at Mendocino State Hospital, Butte County Juvenile Hall, Fresno County Juvenile Court Schools, and became Director of special programs for Fresno County.
While at Chico I met my wonderful wife and we were married in 1977. Our son just finished college and I feel like we are the same age. In my mind, I still feel like I'm 25.
In 1983 we sold out and bought a larger sailboat and spent the next two years sailing around the South Pacific. It was the experience of a lifetime. Damon wanted to go to high school in the States so we sailed home and that is when I thought it might be fun to move back to the Bay Area.
I started a financial and retirement planning business which kept me very busy until 1994 when we sold it to a Wall Street firm. That is when I returned to my real profession...helping children.
After the stress of adolescence, I thoroughly enjoy being "grown up"!

UPDATE...Hello all...update time. Attended our 40th
reunion last month. Thanks to Southwest I had a San
Jose layover and was able to attend the reunion
while "working"! My highlights of the evening were
spending time with the best of all, life's true
blessing, old friends. Another special happening was
re-aquainting with Fred Sorenson, Southwest Airlines
Capt. for the past 13 years! It's a small world, but
apparently not at Southwest. How did I not know?? My
husband has also joined the airline, having been
downsized one too man times from ag management. He is
in our ground ops deptartment at Chicago's Midway
Airport. Kinda neat having him see me off the gate or
welcome me back in! We are at 33 years of marriage
this year...OUCH!

My oldest was married for the 2nd time last October
and is a flight attendant for JetBlue.
My youngest is a "soph" just like my last update, but
now its college! She recently won a scholarship from
TWU of Southwest and apparently has her priorities
about education on a level I never considered. Her
next step appears to be the Culinary Institute of
Chicago. Pastry Chef! Got something from me after all
even if it's creating sweets instead of eating them!
Cheesecake is cheesecake...right? Love living in
Illinois in my hometown and being close to family and
friends from childhood. 34 of us took a two week trip
to Alaska last year....a memory that makes me smile. I
now have a 3,000 sq ft. condo above a Victorian
funeral home! Incredible place, quiet neighbors!
Speaking of friends, I was honored to have
MaryJo "Josie" McLaughlin on a flight with me last
week. What a great surprise. She was heading off to an
Alaskan Cruise.
To those that missed the reunion, it was those I had a chance to see

Well, since I haven't updated my listing in quite a
while, I suppose I'm due...

My history remains basically the same. Looking back
over the past four(+) decades it has been a truly
interesting excursion: four years at UC Berkeley for a
Physics degree; two years at UCLA for a Master's in
Comparative Folklore & Mythology (honest!); a decade
as a working musician, academic and violin maker; the
past 30 years as a computer systems and network analyst
in aerospace, non-profits and business. I moved to
Santa Barbara in 1978 and then about six years ago to
Santa Ynez (just over the hill from SB). It looks like
this is where I'm going to stay: I love it here! We
have a nice place on a hill, with a large garden, small
orchard and a great view. And retirement is hopefully
just around the corner!

Music continues to be my passion (if I could only
*afford* to be a full-time musician...). I'm composing
and performing as much as time and energy allow. I
recently finished my latest music project in September
2009 - my third CD. Sorry to disappoint any
rock-and-rollers out there, but if you are into
folk/country/western swing/bluegrass, you might like
this one! You can get some idea of what I've been up to
by visiting my web site at:

That's it for now. Stay in touch!

I still work for Santa Cruz County only I now direct
services and programs to help the general public and
families on cash aid become economically self
sufficient. We operate two centers where people can
get help with resumes, search for jobs and in some
circumstances receive training. It is very interesting
diverse work and very challenging right now as the
last of the agricultural processing and manufacturing
plants are closing in Watsonville. My husband, John,
and I continue to make wine with friends, kayak, sail
and play with our dog. I won't be able to attend the

Life after graduation began interestingly enough. As a
US Marine, I served in Viet Nam begining in Dec 67.
During the 68 Tet Offensive my brother Jose (Awalt
65'), cousin David Simental (MVHS 67') and I found
ourselves in the very same foxhole. Unbelievable!
Three tours later I returned home in Mar 71. After
that delightful experience I thought it best to join
life again.

While in Viet Nam I was corresponding with a nice
young lady from Fresno. Yolanda and I later met and
got married in 1972. Six kids (I graciously give up
the kid title to B.McLeod and Mel Gibson with 7) and
27 years later, we have an adorable grandaughter. They
are our greatest blessing. We call Fresno home now,
but we lived in Gresham, Oregon (near the Columbia
River Gorge between Oregon and Washington) when
Mt. St. Helens erupted. That was kind of different.

I graduated from CSU Fresno with a degree in
Microbiology. I am the Director of Microbiology for
Lyons Magnus, an International Aseptic Food Processor
based in Fresno, CA.

Over the
years my family has camped/hiked from
Yellowstone, Rocky Mountain NP, most of Utah/Colorado,
the Grand Canyon, Yosemite to the Olympic Rain
Forest. Been there, done that! Hiking to the bottom of
the Grand Canyon was personally rewarding. Now days
for fun I like to strum my fender guitar, go fly
fishing with my 12 year old daughter Steffanie on the
near by Kings River (we collaborate on the fish
stories) and tinker with all these neat new computer
gadgets. Everyone take care and hope to see all
of you at the reunion to re- share "new" old memories.

Happy New Millenium!

After Graduation I attended Cal Poly Pomona (the Other
Cal Poly). While there I meet my future wife Kathleen.
It took me 10 years, a marriage and divorce before I
convinced her of that. We have now been married for 18
years and have a great 9 year old son Johnny III. I
majored in Aerospace Engineering and Geology. Since I
couldn't decide between rocks and stars, I did the
logical thing and went into computer programming.
After spending 14 years at various silicon valley
companies that are no longer around, I gave up all
hope and went into the public sector. I have been the
IS Manager at the Alameda County Water District in
Fremont for the last 12 years and refuse to leave.

Hi everyone!! Isn't this a wonderful way to keep in

understand I was "lost". Thanks to my brother, Brian,
I was put in touch with this site, and I"ve been
found! Yeah!!(Thanks, Jan!) So, an update: Let's see,
After graduation, I moved to San Francisco, and began
working in the Dental field.
Got married in 1970, to my best friend Tony. We will
celebrating our 31st anniversary in April! Our
wonderful marriage produced two fantastic, beautiful
children, Trevor,29 and Tiffany 27.I had a blast
raising my children. Both are happy, living and
in Silicon Valley. We also have a sweet 5 yr.old
grandson, Nicholas. Our pride and joy. Over the years,
I've worked in
various dental offices, and taught reading,math,and
art to elementary school kids(I love working with
children!) Owned (with Sheri Davis,) a full service
Bridal business.After living in San Jose for 25 years
we decided to "retire". So, we sold our home and moved
to the beautiful Carson Valley! This place is Heaven
on earth! After 5 months of retirement, I went back to
work.I'm now working as a Lab. Tech. for an
orthodontist in Carson City-back with the kids! Life
has been good! I'm
looking forward to seeing everyone in July 2001.
Please let me know if I can help with the preparations
for 2001, See Ya soon, Dale

remember before it is gone.
We were trying to save the Pleasure Point Roadhouse for

Community Center.

I am teaching Yoga at the Spas.
I am on the Sierra Clubs Executive Committee in Santa Cruz.
I advocate for Urban Villages, the purchase of the
rail line for trails and rails, paths along Riparian
Corridors and an integrated transportation management plan.
I have instigated the Pleasure Point 4th of July Parade
for the last 5 years. "The Worlds Shortest Surf Parade"

In my spare time I surf and try to save a little part

an "apprenticeship" at various motorcycle shops, I
have enjoyed a career as a mechanic with United
Airlines, now drawing to a close. I am happily
married, and for the last time I might add, to my
true soul mate and Cribbage-playing partner, Katie.
We plan on migrating out of state by 2007. No kids,
just pets and motorcycles.

That's all for now. See you at the next get-together,

Update 9/13/06;

I retired from UAL in december of 2004, and have been
keeping busy doing home improvement projects, as well
as fun things. Katie and I will stay in Vacaville for
a while yet. This location is great for getting to

GREETINGS!! Like many of you I
attended some local colleges (B.A.,M.A.). It was hard
to find work with the Govn't in the field of
Anthropology due to affirmative action policies so I
entered into the Nuke building business where I ran
into Terry Roselli in SE Washington State in 1980. I
nuked around a couple of more jobs and then entered
back into Archaeology where I ran into Don Zerga in
Reno (also in Archaeology). Worked for the
Transportion Dept. of Nevada until 1991.

Got tired of moving around so got a job with Lyon
County just over the hill from Garnderville, NV. I
lived on 10 acres with my wife of 10 years and raise
yummy sheep, border collies (not so yummy) and train
stallions (at least two so far). Went from a Burb dude
to liberal ranching type (very rare up this-a-way).

I ended up nearly bald but not too fat and did retire
for 8 days to some pasture acreage south of
Olympia, Washington. Couldn't sell my Nevada house so
am working again in WA.
Have traveled a fair amount
(Australia, New Zealand, South Pacific, Ecuador, and
most of North America).

Not sure if any of you remember me or not but I was
kind of a quite athletic nerd. My only claim to quiet
fame was that while at Awalt, I could BAR SNAP farther
than anyone during my four years. Kind of hard to
capitalize on that kind of physical talent, just one
of my many non-profitable talents. My brain woke up
finally in my forth year in college (probably due to
laying off the booze). It was great to run into this
website. Take care all!

A year and a half ago I joined a local Halau (Hula

from my job as a marketing communications writer. Our
Halau performed at the local Farmers' Market recently
on a Saturday morning, and as we danced, I looked out
into the sea of faces... and there was Carol Johnson!
What a delightful surprise and how amazing that we were
both in the same place at the same time AND recognized
one another! So, while I'm figuring out the next
chapter in my life (since there are no jobs out there),
I'm happily married (second time around)... still
instructing fitness classes (going on 25 years)... and
keeping busy with the joy and challenge of sharing the
spirit of Hawaii through Hula.

Abdicated from the rat race so to speak. It's way more
laid back up here than in the Bay Area. I've made many
new fiends and really enjoy the neighborhood I moved
into. I'm doing more outdoor activities than I was
able to do down there, since I'm so much closer to the
mountains & the country for my fishing/camping/hiking
activities that I love to do. I'm only 2 1/2 hours
from San Jose/Mountain View so staying in touch with
family & friends there is pretty easy.

I'm sorry I missed this years all class picnic. I was
looking forward to it, but my son brought my

camping trip. Easy choice there.

Take care all & I hope all is well in each of your

looking forward to playing better golf any week now.
