David Abrahams had been fighting cancer for quite some time. On August
3rd, 2000 , he passed away. I would think it would be
appropriate to make that webmaster's footnote on his bio.

Please change any reference of him and the 2003 reunion to Steve Roth.)

Hey! I'm Kerry Creasey, class of '63.

I was one of them that rode motorcycles and spent about as much time up at the Verde/Salt river as I did at school. Looking back, it was a miracle that I even graduated!

Moved to Kentucky in mid sixties. As with all of us, many things have happened. Marriage, a kid, job changes, divorce, etc. Each change always seems to end up "for the better"! Now I own and run a testing lab named "Ky Testing, Inc." and dabble with airplanes and flying. (have a Cessna 182).

Does anyone know anything about what became of Mike Onifer or Charlie Polenik? I saw Dave Abrams at the 30th reunion, and have been in touch with him since.

Thanks, Kerry Creasey

I am Lee Gould, class of '63. After graduating and starting at ASU I
also began writing sports for the Scottsdale Daily Progress, eventually
becoming sports editor. I went to the Arizona Republic sports dept. in
1967 and The Associated Press in 1968. I'm still with The AP, having
been correspondent in Las Vegas, editor in New York City, bureau chief
in Pittsburgh, news editor in Miami and then Washington, D.C., where
I've been chief of the congressional staff and a senior editor. I
actually live across the Potomac in Arlington, Va.
I'm still in touch with Larry Stephan (also '63) and only recently
learned of the death 14 years ago of another close friend, Phil Murphy.
Love to hear from anyone who remembers me; not just class of '63 because
I covered Scottsdale sports in the years of '64 and '65.

My name is Judy (Hallas) Webster, Class of '63. I played clarinet in the Beaver Band, and participated in all the musicals. I attended ASU as a music major, and later became a nightclub singer for a few years...played the Frontier in 'Vegas...Hi Nadine Dyer!!
I have two sons and a daughter from a previous marriage. My daughter was
born with Downs Syndrome and given a five year life expectancy. She is now 33, employed full time, and lives happily and independently with her husband of
eleven years!! God works miracles. My sons are doing fine, too.
I am now, and always will be married to my soul mate of 19 years, Gordon.
We share some odd things: We play clarinet, we are both SCUBA divers, and we speak French. (Although, when we were in France, nobody understood a thing we said!) Our teamwork and success in the defense industry allowed us to retire in
'96. We live a "high life style" now: Scrabble, golf, cribbage, walking, crossword
puzzles, Yahtzee, and grandkids.
I would love to hear from Ross Carron! (We had such a camaraderie!) Also,
I would love to hear from Mary Gossick, Earlyn Nagel, and Jim Palmer. I have
a story about you, Jim, and what you did claiming what you said you thought to
be a "relief tube" on our roof. (We lived across the street from Dusty Blethen,
and you were angry at my brother when you did this! By the way, Jim, I owe you
an apology for not keeping my promise to type your senior thesis.)
One more thing. Thanks, Cheryl Steen, for remembering Debs Valentine's
little Isetta car sitting on the top of the ramp to the bookstore. I was one of the
kids who helped put it there!

dean hill, class of '63

i was so happy to see this site born after rachel ochoa's article. (i spoke several times with her but ended up on the cutting room floor. oh well.)

i had great times my five years living in scottsdale, and one or more members of my family stayed long after i followed the sunset to california, so i've visited fairly often.

but it gets harder and harder to remember some things, particularly  since they tore down SHS. i remember at our 20-year reunion touring the old place and seeing all the stuff packed up for moving and storage because it was gonna come down.

at the 30-year reunion, there was a road where my math class used to be.

and to make matters worse, there was a road through the property where my house used to be, too.

so this page and the arcadia page help me keep as firm a grip on great memories as my feeble mind can. :-)

i have great memories because so many of the kids i went to school with, first at kiva, then arcadia (its first three years) and finally at scottsdale were good to be around, and it's been fun to see folks at the first three reunions.

there was talk of a 35-year reunion (which would be this year...god, i've got to lose an awful lot of weight...) but i haven't heard.

anyway, glad to see all the names, some i remember, and glad to have this wonderful like to a fun time in my life. (don't get me wrong, i'm havin' fun now and my wife and i just celebrated our 30th anniversary).

best wishes to all and keep in touch

Greetings!  What a surprise to get a message from Steve Roth regarding
the SHS Class of '63.  Although I only attended SHS my senior year, the
email brought back many great memories--particularly of playing bass
clarinet in the band. After high school I attended the University of
Wisconsin where I completed an undergraduate degree in English, a
masters in psychology, and a Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction.  I
then taught at the University of Oregon and at Sonoma State University
in California. Now I again live in Wisconsin, where I am a professor of
curriculum theory and qualitative research methods. I still love to
write, however,  and am a series editor for an academic book series at
Peter Lang Publishing. As for my family---my husband is a psychologist
at the University of Wisconsin and is getting ready to retire (scarey!).
My three kids are doing great things.....Jennifer is a post-doc in
psychology at the University of Michigan, Emily is a systems analyst in
the dot.com world of Minneapolis, and Erik is a  sophomore in high
school where he does debate and plays violin.

Thanks, Jan Jipson, Class
of 63!

Does anyone know if there are plans in progress for another?

Are there any other Class of '63ers out there?

I'm Bob Urie, class of 1963, now living in Kansas City, Missouri where I practice as a Clinical Psychologist. My brother, Jim Urie, class of '62 lives near St.Louis, Missouri and is a high school teacher and lives on a small horse farm. My sister, Charlotte (Urie), class of '65, lives in Kansas City and works in insurance sales. I think this is a teriffic idea and I really like the idea of an all class reunion. We discussed that at our 30th; the last graduate class to tour the old school-sad! We were all hoping for a 35th or at least a 40th but it would be great to expand and include lots of friends from other years. I really miss Arizona and still call it home after all these years (I left in 1969). I also really enjoy my occasional visits back to Scottsdale I hope this idea grows and I'll hear from some other grads.

I'll pass this along to some others I'm still in touch with.

Linda Warner (Hanf McIntosh) - Class of '63

I enjoyed the all-class reunion held in October especially the Friday
night '63 mini-reunion and the one at Los Olivos. It was exciting and
enlightening to catch up with old friends and classmates!

Since graduating from SHS, I married and bore two daughters, now ages 33
and 31, (still somewhat boring them I presume) and moved around the
country to Des Moines, Iowa, Seattle, Wash., and Diamond Bar, Southern
California. I have been living in Cameron Park, county of El Dorado in
Northern California, since 1980. It's beautiful country here between
Sacramento and South Lake Tahoe. Like almost every place these days
including Scottsdale, the growing population and the rapid changes in
the places we have called home over the years have been astounding. I
earned a journalism degree at California State University, Sacramento,
with a minor in art. I've worked much of my life at community
newspapers, small publishing houses of trade and professional journals,
and as an editor and publisher in my own business. I divorced in 1980,
and married Paul McIntosh in 1998.

My sisters '60 grad Ginger Warner (Phoebe Pfeiffer) lives in Mission
Viejo, Calif., '61 grad Ellen Warner Bush in Scio, OR, '67 grad Martha
Warner Matak in Cave Creek, Ariz., and my brother '64 grad Craig Warner
is in Durango, Colo. I am now a grandparent of three!

My mother Adeline Warner, a retired piano teacher who must have
instructed 80% of the youth in Scottsdale in our home, including the
mayor's children and the then Scottsdale Progress publisher's children,
is now 87 and has been living with me since 1991. She was also at the
class reunion and had a nice talk with Paul Messinger, whose services
she provided the music for in the '60s '80s, I think it was. She was
hoping to see Mr. Hanson but we didn't connect with him.

Since one of my first jobs (during high school) as an assistant dance
teacher at Folk's Dance Academy (earned me dance lessons!), I went on to
perform as a can-can dancer at the Coca Cola Golden Palace Saloon in
Legend City, Tempe, (anyone remember that old theme park in the
'60s-'70s? Closed after several years -- did I cause its demise?) Donna
Cafferty Kline (who has remained a lifelong friend and lives in Cave
Creek) was also a can-can dancer. She is still teaching dancing out of
her home. She and I had gone to Hollywood in the autumn of '63 for our
big break. Our ultimate dream was to get work with the June Taylor
Dancers team (Jackie Gleason Show boy, we're goin' way back!) But
unfortunately (fortunately?), it didn't quite work that way. We tired
of the atmosphere and ran out of our savings in a short three months,
but getting the distinct feeling that there were bigger and better
things in life than what Hollywood had to offer.

This is becoming a tome, so to fast forward and wrap it up......the
short of it is: I enjoyed dancing and singing in SHS's musicals and
singing all the wonderful (and still locked in my memory) songs in
Scottsdale Singers. I am currently editing and publishing a small
general-interest magazine I started in 1994 called Around Here,
distributed in El Dorado County.

I would love to hear from former classmates, and hear what they have
been up to lo' these many years!

At the reunion I enjoyed seeing Gary and Martha Just Padgett, Linda Mero
Smith, Bob Urie and Charlotte Urie, Dean Hill, Bobbie Orr, Nadine Dyer,
Judy Hallas, Bob Kane, Reloy Kane, Charlie Brown Roth and Steve Roth,
Ellen Glover, Marueen Hirsch Smith (whom lives only 12 miles from me but
we have to go to class reunions to see each other!), and wow, so many
more! What happened to Ross Carron and his younger brother, and to
piano-playing Richard Anderson, and dancer Tod Miller, whom hasn't been
heard about since the '80s? . . . . . . If you know, please let me know!

. . . . . . . . . . . Best wishes to all and to all a good night! Linda
Warner Hanf McIntosh
P.S. Thank you for making the SHS reunion site possible!
