April 05, 1944 Licensed Professional Counselor mtnspirit.net Married 1 summer vacations, dances, Spanish Club Mr.McWilliams, Mr. Wetherbee dating girls, dances
 After I graduated from Wheat Ridge in 1962, my family moved to Orlando, Florida.  I spend some time in Flagstaff, Arizona where I went to Jr. High and 1/2 of 9th grade, then joined them.  I never liked Florida and left there in 8 months.  I worked on a shrimp boat out of Port Isabel Texas, then returned to Denver where I worked for Fontius Shoes and lived on Glenarm Place.  In February 1964 I went to San Francisco and lived in the Bay Area for 33 years, mostly in Marin County, with a stint in the Haight Ashbury in 1967 & 1968!  I married at 22, had a son, divorced and married my present wife in 1969.  We raised my son, who now lives in Venice Beach, CA and makes his living as an actor, mostly doing commercials.  He has three children and is on his second marriage.

In 1990 we started visiting Bailey, CO, bought property there in 1994 and in 1997 we moved back to Colorado.  We now live in a log home on 50 acres in the mountains near Bailey.  See my Facebook page for a picture spread.

I got a BA in Anthropology, with a focus in Archaeology in 1975 from San Francisco State University.  In 1986 I went to Sonoma State University for a Certificate in Alcohol and Driug Abuse Counseling.  In 1992, I completed a Master of Science degree in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis on Marriage, Family and Child Counseling.  I am now a Licensed Professional Counselor in private practice in Bailey and Evergreen, CO after working in the alcohol and drug treatment field from 1987-2010.

June 10, 1944 Construction Contract Administrator, Married 3 Homecoming bonfire Mr. Weatherbee Bowling club

After hopes of pursuing a college education were dashed with the passing of my father, I embarked on my lifelong career with the federal government (2/63) as a draftsman with the Bureau of Reclamation at the Denver Federal Center. With some college course work at CU Denver, I moved upward as a Civil Engineering Technician. I left the Bureau in July of  ‘72 and transferred to the Federal Housing Administration as an Architectural Examiner in the Denver Insuring Office of the Dept. of Housing and Urban Development. Eventually I became a Multifamily Construction Contract Administrator and twenty five years later (‘97) VP Gore reinvented the government and gave me an early retirement. Passing through the revolving door, I contracted back as a consultant doing construction contract administration and continue in semi-retirement to this day. Along the way I met and married  Joyce Lambert in ‘70 (Jefferson High ’66). We were blessed with two sons, John Jr. and Jeremy, daughter JoAnna, and nine grandkids between them. We have made the Bear Creek area our home for the past 34 years. Along the way I managed to coach both boys little league baseball teams, volunteered for and served as an officer of the Bear Creek Junior Sports Association including two stints a president. Now days I continue my love of bowling, play golf, very poorly, lead an active church life, and am making a return attempt at becoming an artist, in these, our golden years.

 

Thanks Scott for all your effort and this wonderful webpage, and to the committee for your efforts. See you in August.

Married 4

My life really began in 1962—graduated in June—got engaged to marry my wonderful husband in July—we had been dating for two years—we married on September 10, 1962, (YES—WE’LL CELEBRATE OUR 50th ANNIVERSARY THIS YEAR!).

Bernie my husband was in the Air Force so, we honey-mooned on our way to Merced, Ca. where he was stationed, we lived there the next three years until his discharge in 1965.  We then came back to Colorado our 1st son was 9 months old.  We purchased our first home in Arvada we had our 2nd son while there and just kept moving north, to Longmont, then Berthoud.

My husband was blessed to be hired with IBM in 1974, by this time we had had our 3rd son and finally our only daughter.

 In 1987—IBM moved us to Kentucky and Bernie retired from IBM in 1996.  Our 4 children all, finished school in their selected vocations.  We then moved to Texas and worked with Texas Instruments until retiring permanently.  We were called on a Mission and served 1 ½ years in Uganda, East Africa.  We wrote a daily journal titled “EVERY DAY IS AN ADVENTURE IN AFRICA”. We would not trade our LOVE for the beautiful people of Uganda, and the spiritual experiences for anything in this world.

We now have 16 grand-children—14 are girls and our 1st Great-Grand daughter was born Jan. 11, 2012.

We did lose one of our granddaughters in 2001 when she passed away at 2.5 years with Hypo-Plastic-Left Heart Syndrome.  This was a very traumatic experience in our lives and she is missed but we know she resides with a loving Heavenly Father and we will be with her again after this life when the resurrection takes place.

August 14, 1944 Retired Teacher/Office Manager Married 2 Student Council Store Mrs. Knutson, Mr. Ellis, Mrs. Blum Pot Lucks and Poster Parties
     After graduation I attended CSC and met Bob, my husband of 49 years.  We have 2 children and 4 grandchildren.
    I went back to UNC at the age of 29 and completed my BA in Elementary Education and MA in Gifted Education.  I taught K-12 gifted classes for 17 years and 4th and 5th grade for 8 years, was an instructor of education courses at the university and for the district, retired, counsulted with a private school,  and am now working as an Office Manager, CADD person, and sometimes instrument person in my husband, Bob's, land surveying business.
     We love to go to all the sports and musical events that our grandchildren are in and get out on the golf course when we have a chance.  Our favorite destinations at this point in our lives are Las Vegas and Hawaii.  If and when we retire we plan on taking a road trip back east.
     I am "really" looking forward to the 50th! 

      One of my fondest memories is of working in the school store.  I had the chance to meet and laugh with each class member who stopped to buy or visit each day.  I also remember being student council secretary when Frank Klepetko was president.  Frank left town the day the pop machine was shut down.  We had a meeting that afternoon that I had to oversee and I was panicked about this event.  I visited with Mr. Mitchell so I could present the facts.  I was so intimidated by our Dean of Boys. This really nice man became the superintendent of Greeley schools when I taught.  We had great memories that we shared about WHS.
        My dad died on the first day of Junior High.  I had many teachers who helped me through the tough times. During high school Mrs. Blum was the driving force giving me the confidence to move on to college and know that I could do whatever I set as a goal.  Thank you Mrs. Blum!  
         Our Pep Club and other friends had great fun at our poster making parties (pot lucks) and at the games.  I hope our cheering helped our men win those games and matches.

August 08, 1944 Retired Retail Operations Mgr Denver Broncos Married 2
 I attended CU in Denver for two years but didn’t earn a degree.  There was some confusion about my grade point average and they suggested that I might want to try again later on in life.  I went to work at the old Denver Dry Goods, became a buyer, met my future wife Wendy who was also a buyer and stayed there for seven or 8 years.  We got married in 1975 and in 1976 I went to work for one of my vendors.  I worked my way up to a VP position and stayed with them for over 21 years.  I flew somewhere about 3 out of every 4 weeks.  Flying got old.  The last nine years of my career I worked for the Denver Broncos as their retail operations manager.  I retired from the Broncos in 2010.  In 1983 we had our son Matt who is now a public defense attorney in Grand Junction.  We’re very proud of him.  I also have a daughter that I did not even know existed until I received a registered letter from her in 1998 (it was a great letter and it was a lightning bolt).  My daughter Lara was born in1969 (well before I met my wife).  Lara’s mother did not tell her who I was until 1997.  Lara waited a year to send the letter and in it asked me to call her.  I did right away and we met the following week.  She was 31 years old, married and both she and her husband were/are CPAs.  She has since had 3 children and we see them all of the time.  We have a great relationship and my wife has been wonderful with the whole situation.  Whew!!  Wendy is still working and traveling but we want to start taking trips for pleasure soon.  Traveling by train is appealing to me.  Any suggestions would be welcome.  I look forward to seeing everyone at the reunion.  Send Tim a MessageSend Tim a Message

October 09, 1944 retired Married 2

My major at CU was music and I am blessed to still be playing in a small flute ensemble in Houston Texas just for fun. My working life was in a different area-propery managemant. These skills were learned during my first marriage of 25 years. During my single years, I became a property manger who had the freedom to transfer to many different properties in different states. It was an interesting job. 10 years ago, my now husband, Frank and I were married. We enjoy church work and traveling. Together we have 4 children and 7 grandchildren.

October 08, 1944 Retired Married 2

It took me 10 years in college with multiple majors to decide what career I wanted. During that time I was a ski instructor and racing coach. I then started as a real estate appraiser and my last full time job was as national chief appraiser for Mellon Mortgage.

I married my wife (MaryKay) 41 years ago and we had 2 sons (ages 37 & 41). We also have a grand daughter & a grandson.

About 7 years ago, I retired and moved to Silverthorne. I am a referee for the Summit County Board of Equalization (Property Tax Appeals), I still teach skiing & real estate appraisal classes. I also enjoy skiing, scuba diving, bikiing, hiking, and playing with the corvette.

About 6 1/2 years ago I got stage 4 melonoma. I had surgery and several experimental drugs. The last drug put me near death 3.5 years ago. However, I just found out on 06/06/11 that I do not have cancer any more. 

I am looking forward to the 50th reunion.
