Mike Allen

Dennis was truly a great guy.  A loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend.  This mornings been tough as I remember all the great times we had with Dennis, Don Mccarthy, Matt Bushong, Dan Shirley, Pete Thornton, Stu Spencer, Todd Young and others.  I'm glad Don, Matt and I had one last time with Dennis and his family at the end.  I'm not religious, but I did say a few prayers for a miracle.  I guess nobody was listening.  You left too soon.  Dennis, you were an inspiration and I'll miss you.

I can't say how sorry I am to hear about our old friend passing. It's comforting to know Don, Matt and Mike were there. I wish I could have been there too. Whatever works GOD had planned for Dennis have been completed and he has been called home. My thoughts and prayers to Mary and the rest of the family.

Liz and I are very saddened by the passing of Dennis. I’ve known him and his brother since we were kids and he called me and others in the area The Marinwood boys. In 1982 I transferred to a tiny town in Washington and a few weeks later while attending church I looked up to see Dennis in the next pew small world. We were able to catch up on each other’s lives and spend time together. Liz and I are grateful for that time. He was the nicest most honest person I have ever met or known.

Please join me in sending our condolences and prayers to Jim Kellogg and his children for the lost of his wife Wendy.  Wendy waged a five year battle against metastatic breast cancer and left to be an angel yesterday.

Teresa Gallagher (Hill)

gosh, I did not know Jim in h.s. But got acquainted with him and had a wonderful visit with him this last yr and a sweet visit with his wife, Wendy. She was lovely and they a sweet couple. Ironically my older sister, Bridgit, & her hubby are very close friends of Jim & Wendy’s. Thus....we connected. Very heartbreaking to loose Wendy and such a lovely family and wonderful person Jim is.

Hey you all oldies but goodies.  What are you doing now?  We are all of age for retirement...but have you stopped?  Write a short description of what is happening with your life...I'll start.

I did 27 years in the Army...retired...and then work with the Defense Intelligence Agency for about 20 years.  I got pull into a contractor job in Vicenza, Italy.  I lived here about 28 years about when I was active duty.  I'll be here until I get tired of Italy...


Who's next?

Ava Talamantez (Cartwright)

Hi Keith, good to hear from you. Did I read right, that you live in Italy?! I was lucky to spend about 4/5 months in Italy as an 18 year old and loved it, hope to go back and visit again. As for me, not retiring anytime soon, over the last 8 years (in January) I've been working as the Office Manager for the Tug McGraw Foundation at the Veterans Home of California in Yountville. Love my position and the mission, never know what my day will be like. Some days are just in the Brain Food Garden working with the veterans, chickens, vegetables and flowers, others days I'm in playing softball with the veterans, and then of course there are days in the office. Husband is retired so he helps in the garden. Unfortunately he'll be going in for back surgery this Nov. so he'll be out for about 3 months. 

Hope you'll be heading our way for our 50th.

Take care, stay in touch.

All my best to you and your wife.

Hi Keath and Ava.

Maybe you don’t know but I’m an Architect and worked in my area until 98. From 99 on, my wife and I run a language school in Rio. Lately in 2016 I retired and we started with a Laser Hair Removal Clinic. Now we have five. I’ll really make it to the 50th Reunion. Please keep me updated, Ava.

Best wishes.

Cheri Adolph (Scannell)

Well I don’t live in Italy and, in fact, have never been. But happy that after 35 years as a medical assistant, I will likely be retiring in 2019. Currently have dropped down to a 3 day work week which is lovely. Just waiting for the boss to pull the plug at this point.  We left Marin in 2001 to by a place with a little property in Petaluma and have been here ever since. Also looking forward to the 50th and will, hopefully be of some help to Ava in the planning.

Hi Keith,

Louise (Irish) and I were in Venice back in May 2018. We had a wonderful time. You are so lucky to spend time in such a great country. Some of our favorite places were Assisi, Orvieto, and Sorrento.

We just celebrated our 14th anniversary this month. Life has been fun up here in Oregon. It's a beautiful state but it's time for a new adventure.  We'll be relocating to the Reno area next Spring. Reno provides us the opportunity to be closer to family and friends.

Louise worked in Landscape Design and Estimating in California until we moved to Oregon in 2012. We live in a very small community that was establshed in 1847. It's quaint, quiet, and very historic. Some homes date back to the Gold Rush era.

I retired from a large public utility in Eugene back in May 2017. I was a Computer System Administrator for their water distribution system. Before that I spent 5 years in the Navy, 15 years in corporate America, and then the last 17 years in civil service. I've lived in 7 states and worked in 40. It's been a good ride so far...... and looking forward to the next chapter.

Best regards,

Steve & Louise

I just thought I would post a light hearted comment during all of this pandemic situation. 

We have four classmate birthdays all on the same day, 4/30/54. 

What the heck was going on in August 1953?  It must have been a great summer!

I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy!

Best Regards, Mike Zink
