Dan C. Maddern
Dan Maddern

Deceased (4/1993)

Dan was one of my best friends in high school. To this day I think of him when I take the backroad (Hiway 9) to Santa Cruz. Dan, Guy Dudley and I traveled that road many times in his red bug (which he never forgave Guy for putting a dent in whilst doing wheelies on Guy's Dad's riding lawnmower), listening to Cream's "Disraeli Gears". I reconnected with Dan- tracked him down in SLC living with his wife and kids. I thought I had him tallked in to coming to the 25th reunion. He had a heart attack before he could do that. Congenital heart murmur, apparently. He was nutty, a blindingly quick wit, always funny (even the inveterate puns), and I miss him. - Rob Karr (4/10/08)

Plymonth, MN.

My high school sweetheart (Cathy Mailhot LHS class of 69) and I have been happily married for 36 years here in Minnesota.  We have 5 adult children 6 grandchildren and 2 more on the way! I've had 2 careers since graduating from the University of MN with an MSW in 77. I spent 30 years in the U.S. Army Reserve (Medical Service Corps) and retired as a Lieutenant Colonel in 2005.  My civilian career has been in fundraising within the non-profit sector with 28 years at the United Way here in the twin cities and most recently as V.P. of Development for Catholic Charities in the twin cities. I am presently in career transition. Cathy has maintained a home daycare business for 25 years. I'd send in a picture but since I've literally not changed in 40 years (...smile) thought better of it.   Sorry we can't attend the reunion, but hope you all enjoy yourselves!! (7/23/08)

San Jose, CA.

After an early marriage at age 19 (yikes, what was I thinking!), a year in Germany as an army wife supporting my husband through college, working full time and going to SJSU part-time...I finally got a BA degree in Journalism and Advertising from San Diego State.  Of course by then I was divorced and launched into my mid-20's working for ad agencies in Palo Alto and San Francisco.  This was the beginning of the tech boom and what a glorious and memorable time it was!  In the 80's I worked in sales in the printing industry specializing in high tech product manuals.  In 1990 I started my promotional products company (Ad Dimensions) and was a partner in the Original Silicon Valley Map & Calendar, a high tech logo map of the Silicon Valley.  Whenever possible, I traveled: U.S., Hong Kong & mainland China, Greece, Italy, Canada, Caribbean. After 25 years, I decided to give marriage another try.  I met a wonderful man with traditional values who wouldn't even consider living together without being married, so we did in 2000.  Since he's the manager of GM's Grand Am racing/powertrain division, he does most of the traveling now. Soon we hope to find that retirement utopia somewhere away from the maddening crowds of Silicon Valley. Any suggestions? (8/1/08)

"I'll never forget the day that Dave ('Tex') walked onto the football field at Lynbrook to join the rest of the team.  Here was skinny, nerdy looking guy with a texas drawl that all of us found amusing at first...until we saw him hit someone.  He was someone you never thought would be a good Linebacker, but played football with a toughness and ferocity that none of us could match.  Rest in peace...'tex'."

Kathy McMahon Current photo I worked for the City of San Jose for 37 years, part-time, then full-time. I have a son and a daughter, and three beautiful granddaughters (is there any other kind?) and have a grandson on the way. I retired in 2005 and moved to Linden, CA which is a small town east of Stockton. There are lots of orchards and farm land in the area which reminds me of Sunnyvale, Cupertino and West San Jose when I was growing up. (8/1/11)

Truckee, CA. A maybe for the 40th

After HS, I started studying Architecture at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, but was caught in the Draft with #162 in a year they went to #172 (the San Jose Draft Board took 2,000 II-S students and changed them to I-A as a test – lucky me).  I opted for Canada, but my truck crapped out in King City, so I returned to SLO and joined the Navy thinking I was safer on a ship than in a jungle.  I ended up as a navigator on a nuclear submarine (long story) and spent 2 1/2 years of my life under water (still better than a jungle).  I was married to a girlfriend from Cal Poly while stationed in Connecticut and did seven patrols out of Holyloch, Scotland and Rota, Spain.  We had our first daughter shortly before returning to San Luis Obispo. At Cal Poly once again, I got my BS in Accounting and through some audit clients ended up in Healthcare Finance after my second daughter was born.  I found myself as a CPA who hated income taxation and I couldn’t get far enough away from it in a local practice.  I have worked primarily in Central California hospitals from Tulare to Redding and had planned to retire in San Luis Obispo or near Lake Tahoe; so here we are in Truckee.  It’s about the most perfect area for fly fishing other than 209 inches of snow per year.  I married Connie (one of my better lifetime decisions) after my divorce in 1996 and we moved here about three years ago as we were coming up to the lake about every other weekend anyway. Our youngest daughter is now a paramedic/fire-fighter rescue lieutenant near Fort Lauderdale.  Her sister is a money broker in NY, married to a really nice guy and they have provided us with our first grandchild, Conner James (six months old).  Being closer to them may be the best reason for us to leave California when we retire in the next few years. Enough of this – I’ll be fishing in about 15 minutes… (6/12/08)

Douglas Brian Miller  
Doug Miller

Deceased (6/1986)

Doug sat in front of me in homeroom.  He was a quiet guy who hardly spoke and had the biggest smile and cutest dimples I’ve ever seen.  Fifteen years later as I was anticipating our reunion my now hubby and I were looking through the yearbook.  Pete pointed at Doug’s picture and said. “Hey I work with that guy at the Sheriff’s Department”. Doug? That quiet guy a Deputy? We reconnected and he couldn’t have been more suited to the job. He spoke when he needed to and got results. He was a caring and patient man who was ready to help you at a moments notice.  My daughters and I lived on his beat.  He would stop on his break, have coffee or dinner or just drive by and shine his light in the window letting me know he was making sure we were ok.  His smile was comforting. His presence was comforting. He became a good friend and I miss him.  Debbie Morris Evangel (5/20/08)

Miller Point on Lexington Reservoir is named for Doug, who gave his life in the course of his duty as a Santa Clara County Sheriff's Deputy in June of 1986, near Lexington Reservoir. Rob Karr (6/19/08)

Gary Miller

Deceased (9/2007)

Gary, an intense guy in high school, sat second chair in Rocco Distasio’s concert band with a troup of flutists, including myself and his younger brother, David, behind him and first chair Bettina Borer. I didn’t keep in touch with Bettina or Gary after high school but through Vini and Leslie Borst Carter learned of Gary’s passing and attended his memorial service. He and his brother, David (class of 1969), both left us too soon. (Diane Moritz Johnston, 7/22/17)

Current photoUnlikely that it will happen this summer (attend reunion).

In a nutshell, I am a Professor  of Cell Biology and Neuroscience, and the Director of the Center for Computational Biology at Montana State University in Bozeman, MT. I do a lot of neurophysiology research, which is as much a hobby as it is a job.   There is more information about my Center and my Dept. at http://cns.montana.edu and http://www.montana.edu. Also, check out another website for another group I am involved with: http://www.bradshawfoundation.com/  I get to do a lot of traveling to scientific meetings in association with my research (just got back from 2 weeks in Barcelona and the surrounding area.)
Bozeman is paradise... I love it, and I am "living happily ever after". It is like living in a vacation paradise every day. As you may remember, I was a professor at U.C. Berkeley for 15 years but got fed up with the city life and crowded conditions (I am a hermit at heart), and decided to do something totally different. So here I am. Bozeman is surrounded by great skiing, hiking, fly-fishing (though I don't do that...), etc. Plus great driving... Rob, you should come on up in that Ferrari... 1 hour from each of 2 entrances to Yellowstone park. 4 hours from Glacier park. (or 2 hours in Rob's buggy).
I am re-married to a retired school principal (Sally), and have 2 beautiful daughters by my previous marriage: Kelsey (now finishing her 2nd year as an Anthro major at UBC in Vancouver, Canada, and Haley (17) finishing her Junior year in High school.
I still play guitar, off- and on. Though Bozeman is the home of acoustic Gibson guitars, I have a couple of Taylors. (4/15/08)

Married with two daughters Jacque 34 and Jaime 31; four grand-daughters, and two grandsons newborn to 9 1/2 yrs old. I worked in healthcare as a CEO and CFO for over 35 years. Traveled most of the world, and there is no place like home. Family and friends - good relationships are the most important asset one can have in life.  I love my work and helping others as well. Looking forward to seeing my classmates and wish them all the best. (6/18/08)

Gresham, OR.

7 interrupted years to get through college; during that time I married Carol Bertossa (class of '71); 5 years as a ski bum in Tahoe; turned respectable(?) after the first child and went to work for Lockheed for 10 years working both technical and business operations jobs; Carol and I had child number 2 during this period while living in Campbell; we bailed out of the Bay Area and moved to Oregon - it's great here, I went into local government finance and am still doing that; intend to retire to central Oregon and Aptos within 3 years. The kids, strangely enough, both moved to Santa Cruz after college, are gainfully employed using their college degrees and not living at home. ( 5/18/08)
