Hi, this is Jerry Aldoroty. I live in Humboldt County, California. That is on the coast about 75 miles South of the Oregon Border. I've lived here since 1973. It is beautiful here, lots and lots of redwood trees, rivers, mountains, and of course the Pacific Ocean! It's green all year long here because it rains alot and the climate is mild.
I was a jokester in High School, always giving Mr. Farrington, Mr. Windes (Bobo), and Ms. Backus a rough time. Ray Planeta knew me well !!
I lost touch with just about everyone since High School and I think it would be fun to renew some acquaintences. I'm a Bank Manager now, so things have really changed!

From: SMBL11@aol.com


I am Susan Bartley Lea, class of 1964. I graduated from University of Redlands in 1968. I lived in San Diego, Phoenix, and Marina del Rey -- I was a school teacher, travel agent and worked for American Airlines. During the 1970's I was able to see a lot of the world! Since 1979 I have lived in Monterey, CA with my husband, Bob Lea, who is a marine biologist. We have two teenagers: Sabrina, 19, who is a student at Trinity University in San Antonio, TX and Graham, 16, a high school junior.

These days I keep busy being a mom and also am on the executive board of the parent club at school, I substitute teach, and recently became a consultant for Creative Memories. I play tennis when I can and still love to travel. My mother and 3 siblings (Steve '67, Judy '70, Jack '72) all live in Arizona. We visit Scottsdale at least once a year and lately see PHX a little more often as we change planes there enroute to San Antonio.

I won't be able to make the reunion -- will have to hear about it from my sister. Hope everyone has a great time and hello to all who may remember me!!

Wow - lots of fun to see some of the old names! I missed the reunion due to
a schedule conflict. Wish I could have been there. Here's a thumbnail of
activities since graduation: Went to ASU where the antics in Animal House
would have been foot notes to my early college days. While going through a
couple different majors, ASU finally "forgot" (humm, I still wonder about
this - too convenient) to send in my deferment so ended up spending 4 years
in the military, 2 of which were in Vietnam (three consecutive tours) with
the US Army Security Agency. Returned to finish school and went into the
securities business. I currently manage for Morgan Stanley Dean Witter in
North Scottsdale. Other current activities include 20 years as a Maricopa
County Sheriff's Office Reserve Deputy and a rancher with a working cattle
ranch in Northern Arizona. Married a gal from Xavier HS (an Az native -
just had our 26th anniversary) and have one son 17 attending Brophy.
Although we have lived out of the valley in past, we are here for keeps now
living in North Scottsdale.
BTW, for those of you who knew Lloyd Bridwell (class of 65 or 66), he passed
away this year. He was a good friend that I got to know some time after HS
and he'll be missed.

I probably shouldn't bother since I had virtually NO friends (well there
was Ted Eminowicz, Ed West, Scott and Bill and Hobbie Thompson(s), Sharon
O., Joy N., and, and, and, ...shoot, maybe I did have some friends). In
that case...

Left AZ in 64 to see the world. On my way back I stopped in California.
Went to some colleges there, and worked at some colleges. Went to Hawaii
and worked at a college. Came back to Cal and worked at a college (getting
borrrrrring!). Was a cop, a sailor, a soldier, a therapist, a teacher, an
administrator, and a few other things. About ready to pull the pin though
and move back to AZ. I'm sure Scottsdale hasn't changed one little bit
since 64! I'm going to Lutes and get a chocolate krumpler, see a movie at
the Kiva, and maybe have lunch at the Pink Pony and dinner at Lulu belle's.
Boy, I can't wait!!!

Demographics: Two kids, three grand kids, and two step-grand kids via my
ex-wife (Joyce Reinhart--almost class of 65). One more -- my world famous
daughter -- from my wife (of 22 plus years). Brother of Jim (1965) who
can't be found in this country usually. Heart attack in April almost did
me in; but I ain't easy to kill (yes, it has been tried). If there's
another reunion...I'll be there.

After I graduated from Scottsdale High in 1964, I attended the University of
Arizona.  There was a little interruption in 1967 when I served in the Army
and then it was back to the U of A where I graduated in 1970. 
I was married to Debby Kee, a Tucson girl, in June of 1970, and we are sill
together after almost 30 years.  We have two children, Erin, 26, a graduate
of Ball State University in 1996 and Jeff, who is a senior in chemical
engineering at Purdue University.  I know what you are thinking ---- Debby
must be very intelligent because Bob could never have fathered two children
that smart on his own.  Don't worry, I hear it all the time.
We have lived in Goshen, Indiana since 1979, and I am in the building
materials distribution business.  I will be in Phoenix a couple of times in
February 2001 for business meetings, so if anyone wants to get together for
dinner and a drink just drop me an email and we can set it up.  I may be in
Indiana now, but I will be a "Beaver Forever."

What a great site! I've had so much fun reading about so many of our old (pardon me!) friends and what they've been up to all these years. I've been in California since the month after graduation in '64. Taught English, art, and humanities at Cal State, community colleges, and high school. I recently retired from Cal State Sacramento to free-lance write and illustrate from my home. Have two grown children: Todd is 26 and Nicole is 33. One grandson (can you believe this?!)--Zacharay is 3 1/2. I've kept in touch with Lee Warren, Linda Warner, and Michele Christensen. Would love to know where Suzie Cowan is!

So many great memories--dancing with Terry Connors at the C.Y.O. dances (always coming in second--Harry Luge and Bev Burke always came in first!!), hiding in Sneaky Pete's trunk of his '55 Chevy (now, how else do you go to the drive-in?), dances at the Armory, the fabulous football and basketball games, dancing in the summer Theater Arts productions. So sorry the school was torn down--unbelievable.

Can't wait to see everyone at the reunion. Lee and I will definitely be there!

I am registered on Classmates- have listed my bio. Just noticed a possible Oct 2005 reunion? I left Scottsdale summer of 64- moved to Miami, Florida- married a Yankee from New York- relocated to New York- had my beautiful son Nov 1965- divorced 1970- remarried Oct 1971- had my lovely daughter May 1973. Relocated back to Arizona 1977-  I have spent majority of my time in Purchasing with large manufacturing firms.

The most tragic and painfull experience of my life was the death of my beautiful brave son Patrick Michael- passed March 19, 2000- after a 4 month fight to survive a very rare and cancerous brain tumor. The most difficult  experience of my life has been attempting to survive and go on with life without my son.

God did bless me with a beautiful grandchild- Ashlee Miranda- one of the greatest joys of my life. The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh.  I try to believe that everything has been part of Gods master plan for my life.

I have never been one known to be a quitter- so I go on to see what still might lie ahead for me in this lifetime.

(See Update below. 2005)

I'm so glad that we are having a reunion. The last one in 1980 was
quite sad and I thought we might never have another.

Since graduation I have lived in Oregon, Nevada and Arizona. My first
husband and I had three sons, who are now all married and have given us
6 grandchildren, 3 boys and 3 girls. Bob passed away June 1994, and I
have since remarried.

I began attending ASU in the fall of 1964. I graduated from ASU May 10,
1990. I wasn't the oldest to graduate, buy my claim to fame is the
length of time it took for me to graduate!!

After having my three sons, (sounds like a TV comedy), attend a
Christian school, I became a teacher's aide for three years. It was
then that I knew I wanted to become a teacher. We lived on the coast
of Oregon for 9 years, Astoria & Warrenton. (Remember "Free Willy" and
"Kindergarten Cop"? Both were filmed in Astoria, Oregon.) I continued
taking classes toward my degree. In Nevada, University of Las Vegas, I
began night school and was awarded a scholarship, just before we moved
back to Phoenix, Arizona.

I was a homemaker for the first eleven years of our marriage, and I
consider these some of the best years of my life. Bob had his first
heart attack and I entered the business field. I worked for Lemcom,
Inc., who made Micro-processor Communications Controllers, the
forerunner of "Networking". In 1983 I began working for Syntex
Ophthalmics, which manufactured contact lenses. I was the
Administrative Assistant to the Director of Quality Control. Syntex
bought Sola Opthalmics, an Australian based company. After a prosperous
2 years, Sola-Syntex bought Barnes-Hind. My five and one-half years
ended with the closing of the Phoenix facility, due to the down-sizing
of the new company.

I was fortunate to have accumulated enough hours to qualify for
assistance JTPA to help me finish my degree. I also obtained
scholarships from ASU, completed 5 semesters in 2 years, graduating from
ASU (WEST) in May 1990. My first grandchild was born three weeks before
this monumental event in my life.

I have been teaching for 11 years, and received my Masters in
Educational Psychology from NAU a month before my first husband, Bob,
died. We had been married 27 years.

I have enjoyed traveling. Took a cruise to Alaska, a tour of Israel,
and find time to take 2-3 trips every year, visiting California,
Florida, Canada, Maine, Connecticut and Oregon.

I met my husband of almost 4 years, Joe, at my garage sale. I didn't
know that I could fall in love again. We were married at the Arizona
Living History Museum, at the 1800's church. He has taught me to play
golf, and we go dancing whenever possible. Joe is quite a guy. There
isn't anything he can't fix!

Hoping to see Jan Young, Roxy Hurd, Denise Decker, Sue Peterson, Mary
Lou Daines, Sue Cornwell, Vickie Grate, Kathy Playton, Lewis Townsend,
Nancy Danyow, Susan Scott, Kathy Walker, Nancy Norris, Bob and Richie
Greene, Jed Nolan, Jim Zupanic, Ed Groth, Richard Frankline, John
Lambert and many more....

The most influencial teachers I had were Mr. Bryan who encouraged me to
discover how exciting Chemistry could be; Mr. Joseph Eslie, who was a
perfectionist who inspired me to be the best I could be; and Mr. Joe
Barcala who helped me to see the humor in life around me.

The funniest time - Seeing Debs Valentine's little car sitting on the
top of the ramp to the bookstore!

The saddest time - The death of President Kennedy. Mr. Eslie had us
sing a song as a prayer just after we heard the final announcement.

I agree with you Nancy, life is precious, and we need to appreciate each
person we know everyday we live. I believe that we also are in debt to
many people in our lives and owe it to them and to others to

Love Ya!

Cheryl (Steen) Voisine

Update, August, 2005: Joe Voisine, who accompanied me to our "Beaver Bash 2000" past away one year later from cancer. I have since re-married.

Don is retired and we travel whenever we can. Don has four married daughters, 10 grandchildren, 22 great-grandchildren with two grandchildren not yet married. We all get together about once a month to celebrate something. When we get together with my family, and his we sure have a huge crowd! I never imagined being married twice, let alone three times.

In making out my trust, I realized that I am
Cheryl Sue Steen aka McManamy, aka Voisine, aka Montague..
We bought a home in Garden Lakes in Avondale, AZ. I'll retire from teaching in a few years. It will be nice to have some FREE time. These last two years I have been developing our school's program for Title I. The Federal Government sure does like repetitive paper work! What is exciting to see is the growth the students make in a year. Many have gaps in their education and when you help to fill in those gaps, it is neat to see them become successful academically. This year we will offer more programs for the parents, including English cllasses.

Sorry to miss our next reunion in October 2005. We have a trip planned to Santa Barbara, and Brea, CA to see my oldest son and his family (two of six precious grandchildren that I have.

Would love to hear from you.

I recently moved back to the area after my husband died.  I spent about 30 years in the Pacific Northwest.  I would love to hear from anyone, and be informed of any gatherings.

I just recently discovered your web site and what a great idea! I am in Scottsdale quite often, as my mother still has the house off of Mockingbird Lane, and I have often thought about the "good old days" (the desert parties, dances at the armory, hanging out in the parking lot at Fashion Square, the all night cast parties after a play), and about what everyone is doing now. Upon graduation from SHS in 1964, I went on to the U of A where I majored in English and theater arts. I graduated in 1968 and went on to ASU for a Masters Degree in Secondary Education. Then it was "on to the Coast" where I have taught high school English, reading, and ELD for 30 years. I have been married to my husband Chris (stockbroker turned businessman) for nearly 20 years and we have a fifteen year old daughter, Sara, who goes to Newport Harbor High School where she is a competitive sailor. We live about 3 miles from the beach in Costa Mesa, California. We try to travel as much as we can (7 times to Europe) and have formed a travel group with friends and co-workers. I keep in touch with Bryan Rupp (Pendergast), and Maureen Hirsh (Edgecomb), also class of '64. Maureen and I are going to try to make it to the reunion in October. I would love to hear from anyone who might remember me or anyone we might have known in common.
See you in October,

McCormick Ranch durring the week and up in Happy Jack on weekends (and as
