Boulder CO Married 2 I have been married to classmate Ernie Eason since 1969. We have two sons, David and Eric, who both graduated from CU and Stanford University. Over the last 50 years I have earned 3 college degrees: in Anthropology, in Museum Studies, and an MBA; worked for museums, non-profits, city government, and the family business; lived in Boulder, Toronto, the San Francisco Bay area, Phoenix, and again in Boulder; and raised kids while I balanced bookkeeping and homeschooling. When the boys were younger Ernie and I were involved in Scouting and doing lots of outdoors activities: camping, hiking, scuba diving, skiing, canoeing, sailing. My hobby is watercolor painting, and now that the nest is empty, I am gardening, reading science fiction, and remodeling our house. I am the entire administrative staff for Ernie's engineering consulting firm, Modeling & Computing Services. I also serve on the Board of our small water district. The Senior Class Prank in response to Mrs. Nolan's almost daily reminders to "SENIORS, WAKE UP!" Although the alarm clocks did disrupt classes for a few minutes, the administration made more noise for a much longer time opening all of the lockers to remove the clocks! 2016-07-02 19:20:20

Boulder CO Married 2 I married classmate Laurie Parker in 1969, studied at CU, U of Toronto, and UC Berkeley (PhD in Mechanical Engineering), and we have two sons both earned graduate degrees from Stanford: David (mechanical engineering) and Eric (applied physics). We did the dual career path for many years, then started our family as the clock was running out, but we have really enjoyed our path - never a dull moment! We might even live long enough to be grandparents. We are kind of outdoorsy/backpacky people who also like the arts, sciences, literature and music. We have done a fair amount of hiking, sailing, and skiing, and recently scuba, hunting & fishing, rafting & canoeing with the boys. If our aging bodies and minds allow, we will probably keep trying something new as long as we live. I was Scoutmaster for several years while both boys were active in Scouts (both earned Eagle!), then I got really interested in astronomy and flying planes. I have continued playing Trombone, currently in the Denver Concert Band and a brass quintet (that is me at the right in the photo of the Columbine Brass). Still working as a Mechanical Engineer and number cruncher, specializing in analysis and mathematical modeling of the failure of engineering materials. I spent almost a decade as a 'Failure' at Failure Analysis Associates, Inc. where I investigated a number of accidents and failures, including the breakup of the external tank of the Challenger Space Shuttle. For the last 30 years I have run my own engineering consulting firm and have done mainly research on degradation of materials for clients in several countries. I have many good memories, but a favorite is playing in the WRHS Symphonic Band under Larry Wallace. That was my best musical experience ever, and a great bunch of people. How about the guys who dressed up in tutus and danced ballet for the WRHS variety show? 2016-07-02 19:15:20

Aurora CO Married 2 Still married to the same great guy for 36 years! We have no grandchildren but that seems to bother us more than our kids. Neither one have yet to get married or seem to be in any rush to do so. Number of children: 2 Travel and Golf I promised my husband I'd work until I was 60. I must be crazy but since I only work 3 days a week (Tues, Wed & Thur) it isn't so bad. I've worked for State Farm for the last 8 years and having the days off that I do it gives us a lot more time to travel. Youth! But being over 50 isn't so bad! Older and wiser as they say. 2016-07-02 18:09:27

Littleton CO Married 3 Living in Littleton since 1989, married 37 years to Linda, a retired School Administrator. I retired from banking in 2014, the last 16 years having been with Colorado Business Bank. Life is good. My children are Cameron, Courtney, and Lindsey. In total I have 4 grandchildren, Casey, Walker, Gwyn, and Sheamus. Also 2 very newer great grandchildren to Casey. Running, fly fishing, hunting, and wildlife/sportsmen advocacy. Beyond high school I ran winter track one year at Western State, but college, girls, and just having fun won out. Outside of college I ran for fun the next 4 decades, and for a while did four marathons including my best at 2:56. My entire working career I served on various non profit boards, and surprising to me was Colorado Non Profit Assn. awarding me their William Funk Award for Building Community in 1993. My last rodeo in non profits is Colorado Wildlife Federation where I am current President. I also now serve on Colorado Parks and Wildlife's "Sportsmen Roundtable". Wildlife advocacy is important to me, and includes occasionally testifying at the legislature on matters of public lands, wildlife/fisheries, and sportsmen matters. Commercial Banking with Colorado Business Bank. From the early 1970s to 2014 my banking career extended from Alaska back to Colorado. Banking businesses was what I gravitated too, and my focus was small businesses of all sorts. Coach Cooper who became my inspiration in life. While high school Cross Country and Track was formative to me, one challenge in high school was teachers signing whether or not I would stay eligible. In college the 'lightbulb' of learning and studies finally turned on and I became an excellent student attaining undergraduate and graduate degrees in Business. I give 100% credit for whatever success I realized in life to Coach Coop. On a whim Bob Moore, Terry Ten Eyck and I thought out a celebration for Coach Don Cooper, and in the early 2000s that vision materialized in a reunion of Coop athletes at Lakewood Country Club celebrating his 12 years coaching CC and Track at Wheat Ridge, and a couple more years he coached at Cherry Creek. The celebration of Coach Cooper was emotional, and for me one of the best moments of my entire life. My best friend Russ Mallander and a few others of my friends in Russ's 1953 Chevy 'peeling out' on the concrete in front of the High School, plus doing a few 'donuts' on the infield. 2016-05-26 09:23:23

Las Vegas NV Married Married for 25 years come February. My husband has served as police chief in St. Joseph, MO and Reno, NV and has worked in Sudan and Afghanistan, running police training there. He also teaches college courses online. I trained my St. Bernard to be a therapy dog and we made weekly visits to the hospital, cheering up cancer patients and children. I now have a St. Bernard puppy and a Great Pyrenees puppy and I hope to train them in the same manner. A lifelong learner, I hold bachelor and master degrees from CU, a master in public administration from Harvard's Kennedy School and a law degree from the University of California, Davis. After a long career as a journalist at the Vail Trail, the Boulder Daily Camera and the Detroit News, I went to law school when many newspapers started closing their doors. I worked for a short time in private practice, then served as a Deputy Attorney General for the State of Nevada for about 8 years before being appointed as a federal administrative law judge and moving to Las Vegas, where I continue to work in that capacity. My family moved to Boulder the summer before our senior year when the IBM plant opened there. Although my high school diploma is from Fairview High School, my heart always belonged to Wheat Ridge High. 2015-12-06 17:53:14

Colorado Springs CO Single Serving the "Greatest Generation" as an activity director these last 20 years and writing a travel article for a magazine. Reading, theater, classical music, traveling and hanging out in San Diego, CA whenever I can. Yes- this body still floats. Graduated in '71 from the University of Colorado, Boulder with an English major and a Biology minor. Go figure. Taught in private schools on the East and West Coasts until returning to Denver to work at the Rocky Mountain News with the Scripps Company, a wonderful employer for 20 years. Mr. Alden was such a great adviser with the yearbook. A heart-felt thanks to all who worked on the "Agrarian" some 50 years ago. The plays were fun to be in and led to 35 more, as a hobby. Wheat Ridge High had outstanding academics and wonderful extra-curricular activities in 1967--but you all knew that! Hopping the fence with Scott Biddinger over at the white "Tower of Memories" across from Wheat Ridge High one night. Trying to escape the German Shepherd guard dogs, we stumbled right into a cattail swamp. 2015-11-15 20:52:06

Cornville AZ Having lived in Las Vegas, NV since graduation from dental school, my wife and I have moved to Cornville, AZ. The decision behind the move was to be in a position to care for my father-in-law now that he is showing the signs of his age. I'm still practicing dentistry but not at the pace I had been. I still love to snow and water ski. Maybe now that I have a bit more time on my hands, I can get away more often to enjoy them. Unfortunately, my wife has developed thin blood over the years and she'd be happier sitting in the lodge with a good book. I don't run like I used to but still have dreams of setting a new PR someday. One nice thing is that I'm in an older age category and there's not so much competition. Cornville is good for gardening and being outside and not too far from Sedona, AZ. which has a lot of red rocks. It does get hot during the summer but not at all like Phoenix or Las Vegas. There's a creek on the property and it runs year-round (quite a novelty in the desert). I'm still doing the tooth thing after more than 33 years. Even if I could retire, which I can't, I imagine I will keep doing dentistry well past the time I can retire. Almost all of the bad memories must have long ago been forgotten. I only seem to remember images of the things we did back then. Maybe I can add some later on as I have time to think about this one. Mike Covillo once had a crush on Cher. 2015-07-29 22:18:40

Keller TX Single I recently had ankle replacement surgery and have been recovering from that. I was blessed to have found a wonderful surgeon who knew how to do this surgery. This is a fairly new surgery (there are only three doctors in the DFW who do ankle replacements). So far, so good! I should start physical therapy on it in a week or two. The replacement is made of titanium, so ya'll can start refering to me as The Bionic Woman. My Maltese named Spencer, my long haired chihuahua named Parker and my tuxedo cat named Frankie. We are one happy family! Flight Attendant for 35 years. I took an "early" retirement in 2005 when Delta Airlines closed our DFW base. Making all the football posters to hang in the halls before the games. I also loved the Barns after the games. Those were some fun times! Linda Satre and I papered Bill Beggs house one night. He only lived a couple of houses away from her. Unfortunately, it had snowed and we left all our tracks leading to and from his house. Duh! 2014-05-18 12:37:00
Sandi Glasscock was my best friend in high school.  She and I both moved to Applewood from Texas at the same time.  We only lived four houses away.  That was a perfect match for a best friend.  We lost contact shortly after graduating.  I had gone to a Kansas City Chief/ San Diego Chargers game in San Diego back in the early 70's.  I was walking through the lobby of the hotel before the game.  Sandi and I ran right into each other!  She was there for the same game.  I think fate played a big hand in that one.  We managed to lose touch again.  We reconnected at the WRHS 25 year reunion.  Come to find out we had both moved back to the DFW area and now only live about five miles away.  We still keep in touch.  Guess we were meant to be friends forever!

Billings MT Married 1 2014-02-27 21:04:23
Hi everyone, This is Steve Hart, remember me? I was one of the fastest sprinters in the state in 1967. Now I can walk across the street, but dare not try to run! But I have a great story to tell about my experience as a junior with y’all. You may have been there when in the spring of 1966 this sprinter broke a record that was held since the 50’s by our illustrious dean of boys, Harry Narcisian. In 1965 dear Wade Dabney tied Harry’s record, but then I broke it by 0.1 seconds— I ran 100 yards in 9.9 (remember yards?). I ran up to Mr. Cooper and said, “Coach, I broke 10 seconds!” His reply has stuck with me all these years and has carried me through many experiences: “Steve, I am happy for you, but you have only done it once—now prove yourself.” He then walked away. In 1967 I duplicated that record, then within a couple of years another young man broke my record—so much for pride!!!! Bobbie Moore, I read your column on the webpage and had to laugh a bit because we never had a chance to prove if you could beat me twice—sorry, bud! Maybe someday we can meet and race our walkers.

But that is old history and you all may want to know what I eventually did. In 1972 I married a great girl from Montana. We met at a Young Life Camp in Nathrop, Colorado. We dated for a couple of years, then married. In 1975 our son Dave was born. He had a genetic disease, cystic fibrosis. He was a great kid and he was with us for 16 years. We loved him and enjoyed so many of his traits. He was a follower of Jesus, and when his condition got worse as a teenager, he wanted so badly to leave his weak body behind and be in Heaven with Jesus. That happened in June 1991. Kris and I have now been married 41+ years, living most of that time in Billings MT. God has been so good to us. In 1980 I met some men who had an oil leasing business that was thriving. I got involved in that business, and worked as a field landman until 1997. At that time I was hired to do land work in an oil company and stayed there until I retired in 2008.

Before I retired, an important event took place at the beginning of 2007. I went with a team of 16 people to Tanzania, East Africa. We spent time teaching pastors and school children 9 days, then I traveled by bus to Zambia with a wonderful Tanzanian pastor. We spent 5 days there with friends. Also during the time in Tanzania, the director of a primary school asked me to find a volunteer English teacher who would come to his school for 1 year. Kris and I were not able to think of anyone; later we agreed, after much prayer, that I was the one to go. That was confirmed by many of our closest friends. So I retired in November of 2008, and I arranged to live in Babati, Tanzania, for 1 year. In addition to enjoying the children and their teachers, I spent time with several pastors in Babati, who invited me to their churches. I spoke to them, sang, played my guitar, and had a blast. I stayed for a year, and have gone back every year for shorter stays of from 3 months to 7 months. I love these people, whose lives are so difficult. I cry a lot for these folks, My dear wife comes to Tanzania to visit when she can. She is the best support I could ever have; our love is strengthened by frequent and deep communication.

More than anything else I want you all to know that my faith in Jesus has been tested and tried; I had to go back to “basics” of my faith to find out who I am and how I fit in this picture. My life verse from the Bible is in Ecclesiastes 5: 18-20. And another verse tells of my mission in the world: Colossians 2: 2-3. I know who I am in Jesus, and believe that I am doing what God called me to do many years ago in my Baptist church in Wheat Ridge. God bless you all very much. Brother Steve
