In 1971 I married Donna Huddle, a '65 graduate of George Marshall High School in Falls Church. We have two kids: Tim 36, the network engineer and Shannon 33, a computer graphics designer and stay at home mom for my beautiful granddaughter, Kayla age 10,  grandson Jacob 8, and granddaughter Abigail age 6.

I retired September 1, 2003 from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and am now driving a Special Ed bus for Fairfax County and loving it.  I have a greater sense of accomplishment driving special needs kids than I ever had in thirty years of engineering with FERC.  If you're bored or could use a sense of accomplishment yourself, E-mail me and we can talk about it.

I'm the webmaster for this LAFA website. Please come in and join all your old friends. You'd be surprised how much you all have in common after all these years.

Bio Information:

Before leaving Lee High School, My parents were told by Ms. Lutz to consider Vocational School because I " was not college material" Maybe she was right. In any case, I graduated from UVa in ' 68 and went on to medical school,which I finished in ' 72. I did my internship and residency in Ophthalmology at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, where I met and married Anne.Shortly thereafter, we moved to British Columbia and have been here ever since. We have almost raised two children, Andrew (22) who has just graduated from the University of British Columbia and Laura (19) who has just started her second year at Dalhousie.

I have an ophthalmic surgical practice in Burnaby, BC, a suburb of Vancouver, that keeps me reasonably busy. I play golf when I can and generally enjoy the scenery of " Beautiful British Columbia".

Love to hear from any of you who get up this way.

Retirement means the Great Pacific Northwet and the chance to live in the same city as my "little" brother.  There's going to be lots of travel between Vancouver and San Diego, though, because my daughters and their children are all down there, and what kind of "Gramma" would I be if I didn't want to be as big a part of their lives as possible.
For me, retirement means the chance to get involved in volunteer work, garden, or bury myself in a good book.  My official title now is "Recovering Lawyer," as that's how it feels!  I have my own (very diverse) library in our new house, and if you're at all claustrophobic, it's not the place for you!
Mary Ann Ryan was our very first visitor in our new home.  She and I have been best friends since September of 1962 and even though there's most of a continent between us most of the time, I can't imagine life without her to be my best friend!  Thank goodness for work-related travel!
Favorite activities continue to be reading, travel (I'll go anywhere!), gardening and cooking (for that very narrow streak of domesticity I have), and staying in touch with a very amazing collection of friends, some of which I found on this website!  Thanks, Jack!

Worked for the Treasury Department until 1966; was told I would make a great "stewardess" (do believe because I liked to talk!!).  Anyway, went on to make it a career.  32 years later and I fly all over the world -- not too bad.   Oh yes, work for United Airlines.  My days off are spent as a computer "guru" or working with Special Olympics.  Just took up golf or better yet golf took up "me".  Living in Hawaii -- so if ever out this way and you think you can remember me, give me a call!!  It should be fun!!

My family lives in Jacksonville, FL (specifics below). I am a senior consultant for TeraQuest Metrics, Inc., a software process improvement firm in Austin, TX (the marketing version of my life is on our web site at – I tried to have them morph my photo into Tom Cruise, but was told that some things even computers can’t polish.)

I have been married twice, the second time for almost 20 years now, and we think we’ve got it right (although there is nothing about a relationship with another human being I take for granted!) I got my B.A. in math/physics from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in 1969, and immediately went to work at Los Alamos National Laboratory (better living through bigger bombs, you know). While there, I got an M.A. from the University of New Mexico. I did finish the coursework for my Ph.D., but my first marriage broke up about then, and I had a premature mid-life crisis. Took me a few years to get reoriented…

My wife and I have 2 daughters, Rebekah, age 19, and Sarah, age 15. Rebekah will be a freshman at Florida State this fall, majoring in International Affairs/Asian Studies. She is also a classical violinist, and was a member of the Jacksonville Symphony Youth Orchestra the last couple of seasons. Sarah will be a sophomore in high school this fall. She is also an accomplished musician, playing piano, keyboard, flute, piccolo and oboe. She just completed 2 weeks of symphonic band camp at FSU. When the two of them play together, I feel transported into another kinder, gentler world… Sarah is starting a special program in her high school this fall, the Graphic Arts and Communications Academy, designed to give the kids exposure into everything from animation to movie making to desktop publishing – I have a hard time relating to what high school must be like these days, but it doesn’t seem a whole lot like what I remember…

Over the years I’ve lived (sequentially) in New Mexico, Florida, California, Florida, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Oklahoma, and now Florida again. I guess the Rockies are by far my favorite (my spirit hangs out somewhere up in north-central New Mexico), but we have extended family in Florida which keeps us coming back here for now.

After graduating I spent some time trying to prove that Mrs. Lutz [Bless her recently departed soul, she probably did me a favor] was right when she said that "I was not college material."  After a few months I decided to prove her wrong and enrolled in Shenandoah Junior College.  While there I met my wife , Cheryl.  We were married in '67.  I continued in school and graduated from Salem College in 1969.  I did my student teaching that summer.  John Moore was my supervising teacher.  That fall I began my career with Fairfax County Schools - I'm still with them 30 years later.  After 6 years as a history teacher I went into administration.  In 1984, when Jack Baumgartner retired, I took his place as assistant principal at Lee.  I spent three years there before I moved on to a central office position.  In 1993-94 [my class celebrated our 30th that summer] I returned to Lee as principal.  I don't know if Mrs. Lutz ever learned of her failed prediction.   In August of this year I left the principalship at Lee to take a director position in our Area office where I'll be overseeing 5 high schools, 5 middle schools and 2 secondary schools.  Lee will be one of those schools.

Cheryl and I have two sons and a new daughter-in-law.  Aaron, who is 25, was married this summer.  He has been teaching in Fairfax County for 2 years.  Adam, who is 21, is in the restaurant business and is getting close to "finding himself."   As fate would have it, Aaron has been the head lacrosse coach at Lee the past 2 years and will be teaching there this year.  It must be in the blood!

After leaving Lee, Steve Rose and I went to Mexico for a couple of weeks, then I went into the Air Force for four years with a couple years in Savannah, Georgia and then to Thailand and Viet Nam.  I returned to Savannah where in 1978 completed my education in art and taught for a couple of years in Beaufort S.C. then back in Savannah before coming to St. Thomas in 1988.  I became very active in Historic Preservation and restored a 12 room Victorian in Savannah.  Got the wander lust in the late '80's and applied here.   Love the island life, and have since sold my home in Savannah and getting ready to build a place here with a great view,  just ask Sonya.  Really like hearing from other Lee grads, and my roommate here is Anne Abernathy (Tip Abernathy of '65 little sister who is now know as "Grandma Luge" and our Olympian for the Virgin Islands.

I graduated from William and Mary in 1968 with a BA in mathematics.  Since that time I've added a M.Ed. in secondary school administration and a Certificate of Advanced Grad Study in educational supervision, both from W&M.  While a senior at W&M, I did my student teaching at Ferguson High in Newport News and liked it so much, I've stayed here.

Over the years I've been a math teacher, math department head and assistant principal at various schools in Newport News.  I'm currently principal of Menchville High School, a school with about 2,000 students.  Not a glamorus or a financially rewarding career, but certainly a personally rewarding one!

I got married in 1972 to a Newport News girl who is in banking. Page and I have one son, Chris, who is 17 and a senior at Jamestown High School in Williamsburg where we live.

So here we all are in the middle of our accomplishments and creating new dreams and goals.  Life has treated me very well. I married quite early to a regular prince charming of a guy, and we moved around to various States that began with M.   We raised two beautiful daughters, Jennifer and Meredith.  They are now married to wonderful husbands and live in Newport News, VA and the Gulf Coast of Florida, respectfully. 

After I divorced my life, took some interesting turns.  I represented the largest international single parent organization in the world in working for child support and visitation laws which are now in place.  I testified on Capitol Hill and appeared on Good Morning America along with numerous interviews in the New York Times and USA Today.   All that was under my married name. 

I decided to go back to Mary Ryan - I always like the sound of that name.  I took advantage of my undergraduate degree in Business and recently completed a Masters Degree in Conflict Analysis and Resolution.  I currently work within the Department of Defense's Office of Complaint Investigations as the Ombudsman.  I love to do mediations in the community and arbitrations for the Better Business Bureau.  Now for my hobby!  I am an arts and entertainment critic for Washington's Oldest Art Magazine, THE REVIEW.  This season I reviewed Celine Dion, Elton John, Janet Jackson, Bonnie Raitt, Jimmy Buffett - well if they came to this area I probably reviewed them.   Wolf Trap is my primary focus during the summers.

I may only get to the Friday Hilton event for our reunion because I am headed south for the baptism of one of my two granddaughters!  Please keep in touch.  I have enjoyed hearing from some of you so far.  I hope you write in this registry because each of us has created a unique contribution to the world.  Not to mention the fun we can have talking about those good ole days no that we share emails.  Remember Latin Club plays and parties, Jr. and Sr. Class Plays, Sports, and Sonya captured some of those Sr. Class Trip Memories.  Yep, I enjoyed those days...but I can't wait to see what the future holds!

Wishing you all love, happiness and good health,

Married with children since 1969 to a marine war hero, as he likes to be referred to, who retired as a colonel in 1992 and presently running a construction company.  Guess that makes me the Power Behind the Throne:

Three beautiful children, one of each.  Chris, 27, a parole officer for the Commonwealth; Greg, 25, mentally challenged but the sunshine of my life; and Katy, 18, our rebel without a clue and now serving time as a freshman at Marymount Manhattan College in NYC.

I've bumbled around in many interesting jobs, from congressional secretary, running a gift shop in Lake Placid, NY and a ten year stint managing a veterinary hospital.  Guess my guidance couselor was right afterall.......marry for money .

Most of my time, since leaving Lee High School, was spent in the Army.  I had a thoroughly enjoyable, extremely rewarding career that took me all over the world - and throughout the U.S.  In 1989 I was assigned to the D.C. area - and after four different jobs - I retired in May of 1998.  I am now working for a "Management and Technology" Consulting Firm - and spend most of my time where my military career ended - in the Pentagon.  My wife Chris and I have three wonderful little kids - Michael, Angela and Matthew.

One of my sisters & my brother-in-law, Eileen & Ken Patterson recently attended their 30th reunion & e-mailed the rest of us (my sisters Maureen [1967], Kathi [1972], & me) to check out the Lee High website. I'm so glad she did & that I did. I really have never kept in touch with anyone, but it was fun to read about what former classmates have done & are doing now.

After Lee, I graduated from St. Joseph College in Emmitsburg, MD, & served in the Navy Nurse Corps. I met my husband Chuck at the Naval Hospital in Philadelphia. We came to California in 1970 for him to finish school & we've been here ever since. We have two sons, one daughter, one daughter-in-law, and one absolutely delightful granddaughter.
While in the Navy, I decided I wanted to teach nursing, so I used veteran's benefits to complete a Master's in Education and a Master's in Nursing. Since 1980, I've been on faculty at Riverside Community College & am presently the Chair of the Department of Health, Human, and Public Services. In 1996-7, I took a sabbatical and became a Family Nurse Practitioner. I love what I'm doing & am always looking for new ways to do it.

In 1992, Chuck & I built our "dream home" & spend most of our time at home working in the garden (Chuck) or decorating the inside (me). Riverside is a small city about 50 miles east of L.A. & 90 miles north of S.D. It's big enough to have some of the nicer things (museums, theatre, schools) but not so big as to be congested. If anyone is in the vicinity, I'd love to hear from you.

Since leaving Lee, I was in GMU's first graduating class- 1968, and returned for an M.Ed in'84. I retired from Fairfax County Public Schools July, 2001. Yes, I enjoyed my years as a teacher at Lee,(Lake Braddock, then counselor at Fairfax HS, Robinson, Lake Braddock) and can assure you that many of the faculty we had as students turned out to be wonderful colleagues and friends. When I worked as a counselor I never once told any student s/he "was not college material"!

I remarried in February, 200l, to a USAFA grad who was the last wing commander at Homestead AFB, and who closed the base after hurricane Andrew destroyed the active duty station. (It remains a reserve base and an Air National Guard base.)He had retired before I met him in Burke, VA at St. Andrew's Episcopal Church- where we were married. He always loved FL, and since my mother and much of her family migrated to Jacksonville (my maternal side were all southern Georgians...)we moved here right after my own retirement.

Both of my sons, James(Jim- Lee Class of '84)and Joshua(Josh- Lake Braddock Class of '95)Dunn live in Jacksonville as well. Jim is not married;Josh married an LBSS grad, and they have three children- Isabella, Noah, and Mila. I have two wonderful stepdaughters who live in Eugene, Oregon. Joelle is married with one daughter and a baby due May, '07. Melissa graduated GMU in 2003, worked on "The Hill," then for Nike, and now attends the U of O law school.

It is amazing how frequently I have thought of all of you from '63, '64, '65 especially. I still grieve for those whose names are written on that large black granite funerary wall in DC. And I grieve for the classmates we have lost over the years...

If any of you wish to write or be in touch, would love to hear from you. I am trying to follow the advice of Dylan Thomas: "Do not go gentle into that good night,/ Old age should burn and rave at close of day./Rage, rage against the dying of the light." Well, at least I'm still raving!

Worked my way through WART - Washington Academy of Radio & TV - by working for Mr. Berry as a gum ball distributor.  The pay was not great, but I got all I could eat. Upon graduation and being licensed by the FCC, I went to work at radio station WAMD in Aberdeen, MD, until I felt a draft breathing down my neck.  Joined USAF in 1966 and worked as an announcer with American Forces Radio and Television Service on Okinawa and in Teheran, Iran, when I was not making training films or acting as a "military journalist". Some of my writing was picked up the AP and UPI and one of my photos gained national recognition (perhaps my finest hour).  I parlayed my investigative reporting skills into becoming an insurance adjuster and claims manager until I got to load airplanes in the USAF Reserve at Kelly Air Base in San Antonio (GO SPURS!!!) during Desert Storm. 

Mostly I handle claims, drive old cars, hit golf balls when I get a chance and fly rubber band powered free-flight model airplanes.  Met my wife, a nurse who dragged me from a drunken gutter in 1969, and we were later "sealed" for time and eternity in the Washington, D.C. Mormon Temple.  We have 5 kids.  My eldest daughter played varsity golf at BYU and is married to a professor at the US Naval Academy.  The next daughter sang with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and number three girl is a prodigal, living with me for another two weeks while her home is being completed. My son played varsity college baseball and served a two ministry in New Zealand and my youngest is at home while she works and attends Southwest Texas State University.  With ties in Maryland, I hope to get back and attend some not to far distant Lee reunion.  Until then, I will wonder if it was really coke that John Christophel was sipping from a long straw up his sleeve during Senior Trip to New York.

It's hard to compress 37 yrs into 300 words, but here is the Readers Digest version: I married in 1967 as the Viet Nam War was really heating up. 

My husband, Gary Hellwege, was from Oregon and had taken a job as a nuclear weapons designer with a govt agcy in D.C. that offered deferment from military service.   After 5yrs of marriage and several moves to California/Oregon and back again, we wisely decided to split the record collection and go our separate ways.

In 1973, I moved to Miami, FL from D.C. where life was difficult owing to the fact that I did not se habla espanol.  However, I was 27 and a soldier on the front line of the sexual revolution, and it was Miami afterall, so how bad could life be? After a 2yr struggle doing various jobs, I got a break and was hired by a land dev. company as a customer service rep answering written and telephone correspondence. I loved the job and was finally able put my communication skills to use. I applied for a job with Delta Air Lines in 1978. 

When I was hired, there were 1100 applicants for reservations agent, and only 18 were accepted including me.  Yes, I was one of those perky, smiling people you see in the TV ads wearing a headset and clicking happily away on a computer while talking to customers on the phone.  Unfortunately, the job proved to be mind-numbingly repetitious: how many times can you answer the question, "What's your cheapest fare to New York?" before you go insane??  It was a demeaning job and I had to work a crazy night schedule without ever getting a weekend or holiday off, including Christmas.

The value of the college education I never completed began to dawn on me about that time. I could have quit; however, Delta was paying me alot of money to do this work, so I was stuck. I made the best of the situation by traveling extensively and transferring to Atlanta, GA in 1982 where the corporate headqtrs for Delta is located.  This was a move calculated to advance my career and to escape reservations which I did in 1989. My last position with DL was in Consumer Affairs, again handling written/phone correspondence which fit me like a comfortable old shoe.  I retired 4/1/01 after an early out incentive was offered by the company. 

I am happily single and childfree with 2 cats, contemplating my next career. I have a lovely home and friends who call me the Martha Stewart of Delta A.L. due to my love of gardening, cooking, decorating and antique-collecting. I'd love to hear from anyone who remembers me.

After spending 8th, 9th and 10th grade at Lee with the class of 64, my family moved back to Ct. in summer of 1962.

After we moved from Springfield in 1962, I went to HS in Ct. then to college (the first trip) at Mitchell college in Ct.  After a short stay there, The Dean, General Hershey and I came to an understanding that I would need to try something else for a while.  However, I foiled their attempt at putting me in the army by joining the usmc.  (clever fellow at 19).

Deciding that the Marine Corps was too big to change, I played by their rules for a while.  I was promoted to sergeant in less than two years and then commissioned in less than three. 
I married Gail, a girl I'd met in California, after OCS at Quantico.  We are still together,with two grown children.  On to flight school and then flying transport helicopters from the Tonkin gulf Yacht Club,  I returned to the world in 1971 and went to Pensacola as a flight instructor. 

I finished undergraduate there at UWF. With the war winding down, I resigned my commission and went to Gator law school in Gainesville.  We came to Idaho, Gail's home where I have done the complete legal career: public defender, elected prosecutor, trial judge, private practice and now back on the bench as a water rights judge (title is Special Master for the Snake River Basin Adjudication) Gail is the Principal at the Catholic high school here in Boise.  My daughter graduated from UNLV and now does the data base for a refugee center.  My son works for a mining company(gold) in Nevada and his wife teaches HS and is carrying my first grandchild, at the moment.

After graduation I moved to Ft. Rucker, Alabama with my folks and attended Troy State University.  Met my husband at Rucker and married after he returned from his 2nd tour in Vietnam.  Lived all over the USA, including the vacation spots of Hawaii and San Francisco.  Spent 3 years in Germany, where our son was born.  He is now 25 and a Lieutenant in the Air Force stationed in South Dakota.  After my husbands retirement we moved to Las Vegas, and after 6 years here I decided I didn't want to be married anymore.  So, here I am living the single life in Las Vegas. I have been working in the Optometric field for 18 years and am now managing two offices for an Optometrist.  After all these years I'd love to hear from you.

After graduation, I continued the tradition of frequent moves and school changes familiar to most of you: Marietta, OH (B.A. at Marietta College, 1968); Frankfurt, Germany (a year of U. MD classes); Logan, UT (edited theses and dissertations at Utah State); Denver (M.A. in Librarianship, DU, 1972); Ponce and Hato Rey, PR (university cataloger for three years, then manager of a shop specializing in  hand- screened fabrics and custom-made fashions and crafts in Old San Juan, and some part-time work for The San Juan Star, 1972-1979). 

While in Puerto Rico I also acquired a love of sailing and a husband, Tim Hostetler, now deceased. The moves were getting less frequent. Then came the BIG move to the Atlanta metro area in 1979. Been here since, working as an text librarian/archivist and trainer in News Research (aka the library) at The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Hard to imagine over 20 years in one place! Bought a 1928 Craftsman bungalow about four years ago on a woodsy lot and have spent time and money with renovation and upkeep -- it never stops, does it? I've kept in touch with Ric Newby (his new house in St. Thomas is aces) since graduation and exchange e-mail with Sonya and Kathy Hallamore from time to time. Ric and Sonya have kept me up-to-date on reunions, and I have a splendid collection of Lee High go-cups. I gave one to a former reporter at the paper, Paul Foutch. Paul was born in 1964, and graduated from Lee 18 years later!

The one class that has stood me in good stead was fourth-year Spanish with Mr. Hatcher.  There were only about 18 of us in a class of third- and fourth-year students. He made us think and talk in Spanish; read and discuss current events and the significance of the storm in "Las inquietudes de Shanti Andi." So much for "Donde esta la biblioteca?" Eight years later that class gave me the courage to apply for a job in Puerto Rico. By the time I left, I knew sewing terms in Spanish and was able to deal with "Hacienda" (the Treasury 
Dept.) and local artisans in Spanish.

I left Virginia shortly after graduation although my parents lived in Springfield and Alexandria until 1984.  Some of you may remember that I couldn't wait to be west of the Rockies again.  I came to Reno to the University of Nevada (it's now UNR but UNLV was Nevada Southern and a JC then).  I got married in my senior year and worked while he graduated and then did Navy OCS.  We had two children, Tige (actually Geo. L Tarleton IV but that's too much for a baby) now about to be 30 and Kristina 28.  Tige is married, no children and Kristina is "committed" also no children. They both live in Reno.  I noticed several references to Mrs. Lutz being wrong about the prospects of my fellow students.  I was lucky to have Mr. Kizer who said I could do anything if I ever decided I wanted to.  Unfortunately I did have a female Art teacher freshman year who told me I had no talent and couldn't draw anything. She gave me a horrible complex about drawing that lasted for years.  In spite of her I became a Theatre Design major after I decided it was more fun than Math.  During my marriage and afterwards (it was over in '75) I painted needlepoint canvases.  In 1975 I took a class at the local community college in So. Cal. in Stained Glass.  I knew I had found my medium and I was fortunate to have a professor from Cal Irvine who really pushed me to learn more.  In 1978 I moved back to Reno and in 1980 I opened my own business, Tapestry Glass. While the children were small I had a home studio, but in 1985 I opened a studio/gallery/retail space.  I moved the studio in Sept. 2000 to a new larger space.  I've been luck to build the business to include residential, commercial and even a few churches.  Besides traditional Stained Glass I work with fused glass and Sandblast Etching. Saturday I did my first paperweight at a glass blowing studio so I'm still learning.  I seem to be able to draw after all.

I've had little contact with anyone but Cathy Henigan over the years but I've enjoyed hearing about all of you from her.  Both times there has been a reunion, I've been unable to get there so I hope to hear about the next one with some time to plan.  Sonya visited a couple of times but it's been a few years.  In the late 80's I ran into Linda Hubbard at an Art Show in Sacramento.  We had a hysterical conversation before we made the connection.  Unfortunately I've lost track of her.  About 4 or 5 years ago I was reading the local newspaper and saw a picture of a bridal couple.  Without thinking of the time problem I thought to myself "BeBe Henderson got married."  I was right, it was her wedding picture published to celebrate her Silver Anniversary.  It said she was a teacher, so I called the school, and we later had a couple of lovely visits.  Last year Don (the love of my life) and I spent three days with Cathy and her husband Steve in Maryland.  I wish it had been longer!
On the flight out of National we flew over Lee.  I hardly recognized the area and I'm sure I'd get lost but it was nice to see it was still there.  I recently connected with Anne Hoffman by email and also Mary Civille. I hope we'll be able to touch base at least once a year. If anyone comes to Reno or Lake Tahoe, please call.  I'd love to hear from you.

 I Graduated from UVA in 1969 with a BSME, and was
Commissioned as a Naval officer at the same time.  Spent 4 years on nuclear submarine duty, mostly stationed in Pearl Harbor.  It was tough being in Hawaii, but we managed.

Left the Navy in 1973 and went to work for Scott Paper Co. (now Kimberly-Clark).  Presently still work for K-C in Chester, PA.

Now, the more important stuff-- In 1969, during semester break, I married Carolyn Canaday, a Groveton HS graduate.  We have been happily married ever since.  We have two great kids.  Becky, our oldest at 30 is married and expecting her first child, and of course our first grandchild.  She teaches 3rd grade and loves it.  Our son, Jeff is 27, single, and working for The Vanguard Group. 

Our primary fun diversion is travel.  We manage 1-2 good trips/year. I also play trumpet in a local community concert band, and am a novice golfer.

Joined the US Navy with two friends (Rusty Bailes and Earl Kisler) in September after HS graduation. I attended many Navy schools as a Gun Fire Control Technician. Married my wife Linda just before getting out of the Navy. Went to work for IBM in 1968. Serviced mainframe computers for 17 years. I transferred to St. Petersburg, Florida in 1985. Assisted IBM customers with computer room planning and environmental for the remainder of my 33 1/2 years with IBM. Retired in April of 2002. I have a daughter, Natalie, who is a Junior in college. I have always loved music. I was in the HS band for 4 years. After HS I got into Bluegrass music and continue to play to this day. With a high stress job, music has helped to keep me sane over the years. I would really like to hear from Lee High school classmates.

After graduation I worked for a while in Springfield and then   married Larry Lewis whom I met through Deanie Black.  When we married we moved to San Antonio, TX where I ran into Gloria Campbell, class of 65 and good friend of Adele Austin. She had moved there and married an old friend of Larry's.  A small world.  We have remained close all these years.

I have also remained close friends with Kitty Grove who lives not far from us in FL.  I have been talking to a few people via email on which has been so much fun.

From TX my husband went to Vietnam and I returned to VA with my new son and worked at Ft. Belvoir.  Happily, he returned and we settled in Reston, VA and our daughter was born.  We both retired 6 years ago from Govt positions.  He was the Technical Director for the Defense Communications Agency (he really is one of those who created the internet) and I retired as a Fiscal Analyst for the U. S. Geological Survey, Department of Interior.  

Both of our children, Ty and Stacy, graduated from South Lakes in Reston.  Our son is 38 and married with our two wonderful grandchildren and lives in Ashburn, VA.  He works for a company that puts conventions together and is a great soccer coach (an excellent player himself.  Our daughter who is 34 and single followed us to FL where she owns her own home and works for the State and Disney. We live near Orlando and the beach so I am very happy here.  Because of my husband's career with Defense and NATO we have been to many interesting places and I'd go back often now that we are retired.  He graduated from HH Arnold High School in Wiesbaden Germany and we have been to a few fun reunions with his class so I am looking forward to seeing some of my good friends again and hopefully attending a reunion in the near future.  I would love to hear from my high school friends.  Maybe you will be posting this Jackie - next time I am in Vegas I would love to see you now that I know you are there.

In April 2011 we lost our wonderful son, Ty Lewis, to colon cancer after a long 3 year courageous battle. If you Google his name (Ty - his full name is Ralph Tyndall Lewis but is widely known as Ty) you will see so many of his accomplishments.  We were all heartbroken by his loss but so proud of his accomplishments and affect he had on people he knew.  Over 500 people in the Washington, D.C. area attended his funeral.  His daughter, Samantha, is completing her Masters in Special Education at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA and his son, Christopher, started his freshman year at Radford University in Radford, VA.

We are all so proud of them and how they have handled their loss. 

My update here also includes my new email address and I hope to hear if there are any reunions or if anyone is in the Orlando area.  We often visit the NOVA area also to visit old friends, family and co-workers.  I love Facebook and the connection I have to so
many. Visit me on FB or email me.  Love to reconnect or just stay in touch!  Larry and I will celebrate our 49th wedding anniversary this April.  We still feel very young!

After graduation, I went on to secretarial school in Alexandria, then worked in downtown D.C. for a bank. My father was in the Air Force, so that is why I was in Springfield. In 1967 my family moved to Texas, where I lived for 28 years. I went on to Del Mar College in Corpus Christi, Texas, and became a paralegal until my stroke in 1999. I worked a total of 34 years for attorneys who thought I should attend law school. I preferred helping attorneys. Now I am retired with some disabilities due to the stroke, but don't mind that at all! I love being retired! I have been married three times. The first marriage was for nine years with three kids, now 39, 34 and 31. The second marriage only lasted two years because he wouldn't accept my stroke. I am now married to a fantastic man who is definitely the father my children and grandchildren needed and that none of them ever had. Even during high school I was involved in volunteer projects of all types, which continued throughout my lifetime. I love volunteering for everything that comes down the pike! I feel like I owe it to people who can't help themselves. I have been very blessed in my lifetime and am willing to share that with others. We are both very active as CASA volunteers Court Appointed Special Advocates for foster children). I was a foster parent in Texas before moving to Albuquerque and loved it. Now we are fighting for kids' rights against their parents through the Courts. The Judges actually listen to what we have to tell them, which is most gratifying. We retired to New Mexico, about 20 miles south of Albuquerque and own a 5-bedroom, 3-bath house (yeah, we downsized after the kids all grew up. LOL) on an acre of land near the mountains. We love being away from the crowds and being out in the country. Albuquerque is near enough that we go there often to the VA for my husband, and to the bigger city's entertainment and food for both of us. My husband and I are attempting to adopt a teenage girl because we both miss having kids around. Our three kids are in Pennsylvania, California and Texas. We have five grandchildren with no more expected any time soon according to our kids. If any of you get down this way, contact us ... we have room for all of you! Yes, I'll stop this "book" now.

I was about 12 when I graduated from Lee, scarred to death of girls; loved sports but to small to play any of them. Have good memories of Mike Ostinato, Bob Miller, Mike Hussey, Sharon Horton, the Cyr sisters, Jackie Montague, Wayne Perkins, Jon Birdsall, Jon Padgett, Pam Thomas (had a crush on her in grade school), "Cookie" Bryant, Gardner Courson, Jimmy Dorman "Tex" Rabinowitz (sp, Mike Hommel, Lynn Mathews, Chip Atkinson, Larry Dunn, Bob Wills, Bobby Allen, Ellen Young and many more. 

Think I thought Miss Russel was cute! Spent a couple of years as a CIA courier in Europe, did a year in Vietnam; several years as a Purchasing Agent/Buyer in the public and private sector; then managed my wife Ann's bronze sculpture business for the pass 31 years. Ann has a few life-size pieces in the D.C. area. Hope a 50th 1964 reunion is in the works! Best to All!!!!!!!!!

I went to Lee High from the 8th through the 10th grade. My parents were transferred to Atlanta while I was at Lee and I was REALLY mad that I couldn't graduate with my friends!!

It's been great reading the alumni page.......I was so sorry to hear of Ronnie Dunn's death.

I saw lots of people I haven't heard from or seen in years.

I'm in touch with Louise Long Lynch, Patti Barnes, Joyce Carter......Rebecca Brumbaugh. Donna Webb even though she didn't graduate from Lee either.

I so remember Rocky Carlan's death. Didn't that happen the weekend of the Prom??! I still cannot believe it I did come back and went to the prom with Larry, Joyce, Patty, Scott and Tom Cushman.

I had been close to Sharon and Steve Matthews when they were killed.

I was supposed to spend the night with them that night but my grandmother was visiting and my Mom wouldn't let me!

I have moved around a lot after leaving Springfield. (It's so strange to see people talking about those streets now.) I lived on Backlick Rd.

Ah the memories of Bricks and Hot Shopps.....

Anyway.......It's been a nice trip down memory lane.

I guess I don't qualify as a graduate but in my heart I do.

If anybody wants to contact me..........I am on facebook.

I am a realtor in Southwest Florida living in the Naples vicinity.

Moved over here from the east coast of Florida after living there for

36 years or I'm a "Floridiot"

My home # is 239 494-8484.

I am divorced and have been for 19 years.

Am a Mom of two .....have a son in Maui and a daughter who is now in Pensacola.

To all my classmates, I wish you all a happy 50th anniversary celebration of our graduation from our wonderful alma mater, the place where we grew up, Lee High School! 

I have been mostly retired for a couple of years, still doing some part-time consulting work on shipbuilding programs for my friends in DC, but mostly enjoying being near our daughter, her husband, and three wonderful granddaughters, who live in Charlotte, NC.  Grandchildren are the best, and at age 7, 5, and 2, something good is always happening!  Our son also lives nearby in Columbia, SC, and he is contemplating moving to Myrtle Beach. 

Wendy is an artist, and is enjoying painting water colors and teaching art, we’re also enjoying our cabin cruiser on Lake Wylie, and playing croquet on our world class, professional style croquet court right here in Tega Cay.  We’re both members of the Catawba Sail and Power Squadron and serve on the board of directors, and we’ve been taking some of the boating education courses on seamanship and nautical piloting. 

My Mom and Dad built a house in Dad’s old hometown in Hemlock, Ohio, between Athens and Zanesville, when he retired about 25 years ago, and after “commuting” back and forth for many years, they moved to Ohio full time and sold the old homestead on Cabin John Road in Springfield.  Mom passed away five years ago, and Dad is still going strong at 89, mowing his lawn, going to the gym three times a week, and wearing me out just hearing about it all on the phone. 

We’ll be going to visit Dad over 4th of July and will have a reunion of all the brothers, me, Roger ’67, Jeff ’73 or ’74, and Chris ’81 I think, anyway, all Lee! 

Wendy is originally from England, and we’ll be traveling to France and England in August and September for a niece’s wedding, following up another niece’s wedding last summer, now we’re fresh out of nieces, so we’ll have to think of another reason to travel to England!  Next summer we’re thinking about a big driving trip out west to visit national parks.  We visited the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone a few years ago, and it was spectacular, our home is now graced by several paintings that Wendy made of our trip.  And don’t even ask about the time Wendy asked a fearsome “biker chick” to take our photo next to the Yellowstone sign and then started criticizing her camera aim.  I was hoping for a buffalo stampede, or something equally less dangerous than an annoyed biker, to extricate us from that situation! 

And so, many congratulations to all of us for reaching the 50 year milestone!!  If anyone is ever in the Charlotte, NC area anytime, let us know and we’ll have a mini-reunion!

We just closed out 2014 and 50 years of life after Lee. Rod Stewart turned 70 today and Joe Cocker died in Dec. So much for nostalgia and milestones.

I hope this finds the class of '64 well. Life after Lee included time on a destroyer in the Mid-East and Havana Harbor, marriage, and an MBA. I managed financial planning for the commercial nuclear ops of Babcock & Wilcox until the late 80s. After we sold that business to the French I ventured into business plan consulting and small time private equity deals. I'm 90% retired but still have 2 partnerships that I'm involved in.

My wife, Linda, taught elementary school for 30 yrs. We do our fair share of traveling including ritual trips to Hilton Head and the Amalfi Coast. I do love the "Path of the Gods" and Italian-Med seafood. Our primary focus is our son and his family. Our two grandkids, ages 14 and 12 are heavily into lacrosse. We really enjoy them. Our son was Chief Sales and Marketing officer for Ritz Carlton and is now  Senior VP, one 4 area managers and
 responsible for approx one fourth of Ritz Carlton hotels.

We live in South Central VA and they live in Ashburn VA about 3-4 hours away so we get to see them regularly. We are fortunate that our son and our wonderful daughter-in-law both want and value our
being part of the grandkids' lives. I haven't kept up with the class or even been by to see LHS but would enjoy hearing from you.

Best wishes and good health to all.

I have continued to live in the Northern Virginia area since leaving Lee way back in 1965.  Professionally, I am a real estate appraiser and broker (please visit my company's website ).  My real joy in life is my family which includes my wife Callie and five children (including two sets of twins) and five grandchildren.  My youngest are nine years old and my oldest are 31 years old.  I have been extremely blessed in life with the single most meaningful event being born again in October, 1982 at a luncheon with Sen. Bill Armstrong as the speaker.  Having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ provides my life with real meaning and purpose.  Thanks for allowing me to share these comments and thoughts.

After graduation attended a junior college in Beckley, WV for one year and then transferred to Old Dominion. Married Brent Schroeder (class of '65) and divorced 11 years later. Have remarried and now living in Winchester, VA. I am working full time in Middleburg as a "Lifestyle Manager" which means I do a bunch of things for my boss, who is based in FL, and I have to admit, I love my job. My husband Richard is retired but works part time and is most often found on the golf course. We have no children but have had cats, dogs and horses. Currently we have one yellow Lab and two horses. My childhood love was horses so after my divorce I started riding again and been doing so ever since. Recently a lady moved her two horses into the barn where I board and it turned out to be Pat McCloskey from our class too. What a small world. You can find me on Facebook (Lisa Velenage Turk) and would really enjoy hearing from old classmates.

After graduation from Lee H.S,. I worked the summer at the Pentagon and my family moved to Tennessee where I attended the University of Tennessee for 2 years (Yea, GO VOLS!).  During that time I met David Livingston (an older man of 22) and a pharmacist and left school to get married.

I worked at an insurance company in Nashville, attending night school to get my 3rd year of UT but then quit when our son Chance Livingston was born.  I have been happily married for 31 years and Chance is now 22 and a student at the University of Tennessee studying Engineering/Business.  He is a joy!

I now work part time at our church and am happy as a clam!!  We live in beautiful Brentwood, TN, home of Country Music stars and lots of colorful people that couldn't be nicer.

Biography of Don Newby

Don Newby has been a International Sales and Business Development executive for the past 20 years and has a broad background in High Technology New Business Development, Marketing, Strategic Planning and Sales Organizational Development.

Don’s introduction to the world of high-technology began when he joined Control Data Corporation and worked on a number of classified, government projects that included assignments at the Institute of Defense Analysis, Center for Naval Analysis, Office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the National Military Command Center Pentagon, Washington D.C. He was then promoted and transferred to the Kwajalein Missile Range in the Marshall Islands as Engineer-in-Charge of the large-scale real-time computer system. The Kwajalein Atoll, the largest in the world, is the primary test area for the United States strategic and tactical missile systems. In the years that followed, Don pursued a progressive career that included assignments with such technology notables as Sperry Univac now UNISYS (Branch Manager) and Megatek Corporation (District Manager) a division of SPRINT.

With a proven entrepreneurial flair, Don’s chosen path took him into the business side of high technology. He was Business Development and Program Manager on several multi-million dollar Aerospace/Defense contracts including the Space Defense Operation Center (NORAD Headquarters) Colorado Springs, CO. He was responsible for the implementation of high performance 3-D graphic workstations and software that identified, tracked and cataloged objects in space. Other computer technology projects he developed and managed include the Northwest’s first electronic funds transfer network The EXCHANGE and Portland, Oregon’s 9-1-1 emergency dispatch system. Don’s professional career includes District Manager with Consilium, Inc. a leading supplier of factory and plant floor management information systems for the semiconductor and aerospace industries, and an investor/principle in a start-up electronics instruments and computer peripheral distribution business where he created the first ARINC 429 portable digital test instrument for the Boeing 757/767 airplane program. The innovative instrument became a multi-million dollar product. Don is currently International Sales and Business Development Manager with a software firm in Washington.

Don’s community service includes two terms of elected office as a City of Burien Council member. During this time he served as Deputy Mayor, Chair of the Public Safety and Information Technology Committees and on Regional Commissions at the appointment of the Council.

I graduated from VA Tech in '69 with a BS in Mechanical Engineering. Went to work for the Navy during the Vietnam era in rocket propulsion R&D. In '74, moved to Boulder CO to do my Masters in Mechanical Engineering at CU, then began a career in medical product development, with a 9-year sabbatical in technical sales with Hewlett Packard. It's been 14 years since I returned to the world of R&D. I have a 20 year-old son, Mark, and a wife of 28 years named Susan, a United Airlines Flight Attendant.

I cycle a couple thousand miles a year around Colorado to stay fit, and after 27 years of downhill skiing I've hung up my skis because of the crowded conditions in our mountain resorts. I miss the moguls, but I don't miss the traffic jams on the Interstate, the crowded ski runs, or the high cost of lift tickets. Because of we have 300 sun days a year here, I can actually cycle in the wintertime, so it's easy to be fit throughout the year.

I hope some of you remember me.  I'll never forget my experiences  at Robert E. Lee.  My family was dispatched to Hawaii after my junior year because of the Vietnam War.  I subsequently became a surfer, and I graduated from Punahou High School.  I then attended the University of Washington, and earned a Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree in 1972.  I married in 1970, moved to Edmonds, Washington, and my wife of 32 years, and I raised three boys.  I continue to practice dentistry, and enjoy tournament handball, sailing, and guitar playing.

When I attended Lee I first lived on Essex Avenue.
During my Junior and Senior year at Lee I lived in West Springfield
and worked at the gold and country club, which is still there.

During the summer after graduation I continued to work at
W. Springfield Golf Club. I liked the $ so much my mom had to push me to go to college. Went to U of Baltimore for 2yrs, but disliked the city school atmosphere in downtown Baltimore. Transferred to the "Sweetheart Campus of the South", Georgia Southern in
Statesboro, GA. Loved it there. Got married for the first time and
graduated in '69. Draft Bd disallowed my deferment for an advanced
degree so I enlisted in the Army so I could choose my MOS. Went to Ft
Jackson in '70 for basic and AIT then to Vietnam in '71 and returned
in '72 to live and work in Richmond, VA. A job change in '78 required
a move to Burke, VA near my parents, where I met Deb Sisco, working
at Ft Belvoir. We got married at the old church in Pohick, just south
of Springfield. Moved for work again to Lehigh Valley, PA in '83. The
harsh weather made me move again to CA, which is where my wife Deb
and I still reside. 

We have three grown daughters and five grandchildren, most of which
live near us in CA. My parents Eugene and Hazel Dyson still live in
the Signal Hill area of Burke, VA. My mom has Alzheimer's, and I've
been trying to get them to move into Green Springs in Springfield,
but unsuccessful so far.

Deb and I both are career Government employees and work for the
Immigration Service. I'm a Supervisor and Deb is a Congressional
Liaison Specialist. My work at INS is very rewarding and requires me to travel to our HQ in Wash DC several times a year, but never enough
time to relax and enjoy my visits with my parents or look up old
friends. I'm hopeful to renew and update old friendships or maybe
make new ones by adding this bio.

After Lee HS, attended University of Dayton and University of Maryland, graduated in 1970 (UMD) with degree in PHY Ed, and ROTC scholarship got me commissioned in US Air Force. After many years about thinking about leaving the Air Force and going into the sports arena, I made commitment for a 20 year career in the Air Force. Retired from Usaf in 1993; since, have worked as a private club manager and for past 11 years at Kingsmill Resort. Claudia Cicero and I married in 1968, and we celebrate 40 years this August.

Hello Lancers! After graduation I worked for the Army Surgeon's General Office in DC, took evening classes at NOVA, and a few years later married Bob Wefel, also a '65 Lee graduate. Bob attended college and worked but eventually entered the military. His assignments took us to schools in Texas and Maryland. Bob also served in Vietnam. We have two grown children and have lived in Florida since 1980 but still visit the Springfield area from time to time since we still have relatives there.

I worked several years for Salomon Brothers, an investment banking firm. I trained at the World Trade Center in the New York office and specialized in equities (stocks). I worked with the seven U.S. domestic trading floors including the AX and NYSE. Eventually Salomon merged with Smith Barney and they already had their back office operations so it was a transition for me but a new opportunity. I now work in Operations for one of the most successful casinos, the Seminole Hard Rock.

Besides work, I am a 15-year cancer survivor, published my story, performed in theater, and often am a motivational speaker to corporations and organizations. This year, Bob and I celebrate 40 years of marriage and look forward to becoming grandparents next year. Remember, live your life fully and completely everyday!

After Robert E. Lee, I graduated from Penn State in 1969. I met my wife Norma there and married her our Senior year. We've been married for 40 years. We have two sons, living also in South Bend and one of them provided us with two beautiful grand daughters, ages 3 and 6. I am retired and we travel as much as my wife's teaching calendar will allow. We took a 10 day Baltic cruise this past summer. Lee Lancers Onward!!

Since leaving lee in 1965 I attended Old Dominion University in Norfolk Va. Uncle Sam invited me to join the Army in 1978 so I had a break from college to see other parts of the world. I finally graduated from ODU in 1971. I then taught high school in Suffolk Va. I seemed to stay broke and finally got into the IT world. I am now the senior V.P. of Canon/OCE USA. I am married and love to spend time at our beach house on the Outer banks of N.C. Do frequently see Old Lee fellow class mates. 1964-66 were quite the years at Lee . Great memories. Bricks, Hot Shoppes, Tops. Bring back memories.???

I attended the Walter Reed Army Institute of Nursing in D.C. Upon graduation, I served on active duty in the Army Nurse Corps for 4 years. Was stationed in Korea, Ethiopia and Ft. Sam Houston, San Antonio.

Married my husband and went to Germany. We have been married 39 years. He worked for the Federal Bureau of Prisons for 14 years, which moved us from Wisconsin to Connecticut to Texas to California. I worked as a RN in many areas of nursing and served in the Army Reserves.

We have retired in San Antonio. Have a son and a daughter and the cutest 3y/o grandson ever! Veteran's weekend 2013 I went to D.C. for my 44th nursing school reunion.
