Isabel San Cristobal Current photo Exch. Student Chile. Vicki Hazelbaker writes:
She stayed with my family. We lost contact for many years, but sometime in the early 90s she found my family. She, her husband, and 3 children were in Wisconsin for a year while her husband studied some medical techniques there (he is a physician). I went to visit her for a couple of days.I last saw her in maybe 1999 when she was traveling with one of her daughters and they had a layover in Dallas. I was at work and got her message late, so only was able to see her for about 10 minutes.
Unfortunately, I am not very good at writing & keeping in touch. However, this has prompted me to write to her. (4/17/08)

Retired Fire Captain from Cal Fire where I enjoyed 35+ years. Living in Scotts Valley for the past 20 years. My wife Pam and I are proud parents of two great sons who have graduated college and on great paths of their own. Pam and I love to travel, the most recent was to Australia and New Zealand. Still get together often with “the old gang” (Frenchie, Phil, Jerry, brother Rob, Rich, Jack, John, and others). Enjoy community service with the Scotts Valley Lion’s Club and being a Director on the Scotts Valley Fire Board. (7/30/08)

[note: yearbook picture is from 1967 yearbook]

I was at Lynbrook for my sophomore and junior years but went to two other high schools my senior year.  The fall term I went to Homestead, and then moved to the Sierras and went to Summerville.  There I was queen of the prom, and graduated with my class of about 80 seniors.  I came back to Santa Clara Valley where I was a legal clerk for many years.  I met my lovely husband Paul Stacker, we married (1976), and I joined him in the world of computers.  I have been a programmer ever since.  We now live in Eugene, OR, with our daughter, Deanna (21), and Paul’s mother (91).  Deanna is going to Oregon State to study Radiation Health Physics on her path to becoming a Radiologist.

Lakeport, CA

I like to start my day with prayer and reading Godís Word, then itís off to the gym or a walk. I prefer summer time here in Lakeport, and all the lake activities. Been here since 2004, after 54 years in SCCo, where my husband and I worked and raised my son and his four. I spent 32 years at Pac Bell before retiring. The kids are raising their families and my husband passed after a 34-year marriage. I fill my time with volunteering, club meetings, and crafting, but invite me to a tea party, and Iím there. Most of all, I like being in my wood shop making things to enter in the County Fair. I really enjoy living in small-town California where the pace is much like Saratoga Ė back when.

Came back to the states and flipped out (major PTSD), lived in Big Sur AWOL for nine months. Went to Portland, Oregon; got saved; went back to the army and was honorably discharged. Went to school for eight years, and have been a pastor of an innovative Independent Bible church for 25 years. My wonderful wife's name is Judy. Here's our church website for North Clackamas Bible Community, Portland, Oregon. (7/26/08)

After Lynbrook I graduated from Stanford in 1972, and married Mary Jane Hoffecker at the end of the summer. We were married in the Memorial Church on the Stanford campus. My 42 year professional career was executive management with global risk management/ benefits & retirement insurance consulting firms. San Francisco, San Antonio, Manhattan, Orlando, 2 years in The Hamptons, Manhattan again, and Stamford, CT. My firm, Aon plc, lost 176 colleagues on 9/11 in the World Trade Center, and there were many casualties from our town, New Canaan, CT where we lived for 25 years. We retired in 2017 and moved to Mt Pleasant, SC just out Charleston. It has been a blessed 50 years with Mary Jane, our 3 sons, 2 daughters in law, 3 grandsons, and we await our 4th grandchild later in 2023 in Brooklyn.
