Arthur, Sam
40 years is a long time! I still have great memories of high school, although they are getting a little dim! After college and law school I moved out to Colorado and have been at the same law firm for 34 years. I have 4 children: two (sometimes) grown daughters (30 and 28) and two step sons (14 and 15). I was married to Donna for 25 years before she passed away. I married again to Kathy in 2006, and got right back into parenthood! I will try to get back to the reunion if possible. This gives me 4 months to lose those last 15 pounds! (updated 2012) BACK

Clementi, Vito
Jail time? Not unless you count visiting my clients- I never did go into politics. After the Army from 72 to 75, school was LSU with a BA-journalism in 78; Loyola U. Law (New Orleans)in 81. I practiced for a poverty law clinic until 82, and then back in the Army as a JAG until 90. I am now a senior legal counsel for the Board of Veterans' Appeals in Washington, DC. In '81, I married a smart, sweet, good-looking lady from Alabama, and we remain married and child-free. More to the point of the reunion, I was recently treated for cancer, and thought alot about high school during chemotherapy: getting the invite in 5/02 was a gift, and I really look forward to being back in Wayne for the first time since 72 and seeing my classmates. IF YOU GET TO DC, I'm in the book so look me up, (Arlington, VA) especially if we didn't run the same crowd at WV. There's usually coffee on the stove, cold ones in the frig, and I'm told I give a really good tour of the capital. BACK

I met my husband, Paul, in Lake Hopatcong in 1979 and we moved to Florida that year. Got married in 1982 and we're still in love and happy together. No children, but over the years we've had dogs - our "kids" - including a Doberman, a Chesapeake Bay Retriever and, currently, a Labradoodle (Casey Yankee Doodle, aka "Casey", 6 years old). After living in many places around Florida, we settled in Orlando and started our own business in 2001 (in travel). Tired of the sweltering summer heat in Orlando (I once heard someone in an airport fittingly describe it as "living in a Crockpot") we moved to a beautiful and tranquil beach town on the East Coast called Ponce Inlet. I'm a Cancer Survivor and the Orlando Chapter Director of a national non-profit called Flashes of Hope (www.flashesofhope.org). Business has been a struggle since the bottom fell out of the economy in 2008, but life is good and we're thankful for each other, our family and friends. Hope you are all doing well. Sorry - and shocked - to see all those we've lost. (updated 2012) BACK

35 years -- where did it go? How sad to see the list of classmates that we have lost.
I am married, with 2 sons (ages 22 & 30) and 2 grandsons (ages 1 & 3), who are still in NJ. I never had a career but stayed an at-home mom and loved every minute of it. After living on the same block in Wayne for 49 yrs my husband, Forrest, & I moved to NC in 2003. We found a beautiful 20 acre farm which we have named "Windows of Heaven Pastures" and currently have 9 animals: 2 horses, 2 mules, 2 pygmy goats, 2 cats, and 1 dog. See an ark-like pattern developing here?
I miss the kids terribly but on every trip back to NJ I realize how congested and hurried it is and am thankful for the slower pace of the South. I've been incredibly blessed with a husband whose motto is "Whatever makes the lady happy." Life is good.

Sue O'D : I think of you often.
Butch O : Where are you?
Rick R : I could use a volume vet discount.
Chris D : Congrats on those daughters.

Marrese, Carl
Wow, look how successful the class of 72 has become. Children, businesses, and you're all still laughing. For me, I would have to say it's been an interesting journey, and for the most part, a pleasurable journey. I graduated from William Paterson College in 77 with a BA in chemistry. I knew that I wanted to learn more chemistry, so I attended graduate school at the University of Vermont, and in 1983 I received a Ph.D. (I know, long time. What can I say, I'm a little slow on the up-take). My career in chemistry has taken me to Pittsburgh, PA, Washington, D.C., and Rochester, New York, where I currently reside. I worked for the Eastman Kodak Company for 15 years, and on 6/22/02 I resigned to begin my own consulting business, the "Greener Chemistry Corporation" (now I know what real fear is). And speaking of fear, I was married for 4 years, am now divorced, but no children. Probably for the best - parenting is a full-time job, and I know it would definitely cut into my golf game. Keep it going class of 72. BACK

I'll probably test the boundaries of blurbitude here. I'm an English professor at Penn State Altoona (which explains the verbosity)--also coordinate our Environmental Studies program. (So essentially, I get paid to read books and go hiking. Taught a course in "Bob Dylan as Poet" last semester. Life is good.) Divorced. Two kids, Jacy (11) and Kira (8). Got a book out, Story Line: Exploring the Literature of the Appalachian Trail (which makes a fine gift for any occasion--or a competent if overpriced drink coaster.) In fact, Gerry Wade makes an appearance in the introduction, arguing politics and touching flowers. Oh, and if you remember me as CanadIAN--I became a US citizen about 5 years ago.

McGill, Kevin
After graduation I entered the electrical trade and a few years later became a Christian. I later enrolled at Miami Christian College where I received a BA in Bible/Theology (1982). I married my wife Cindy in 81, and moved back to Jersey in 83 to continue work in the electrical industry. We have two great sons: Matt(married in Grad school) and Jon (Junior in college). God has been good to me in these 30 years for which I am very thankful (Psalm 103). In recent years I have made four mission trips to Haiti (the 5th a month from now)and one to Bonaire to do volunteer electrical work, and also spent two years serving as a volunteer at a Christian drug and alcohol rehab in NJ (America's Keswick). A few years back I completed a website designed to assist others in learning what the scriptures teach about God's love for us and His will for our lives: www.GodisForUs.com & GodhasSpoken.com. I would be glad to hear from any old friends and acquaintances. Email: Kevin@Godisforus.com. Best wishes to all…Kevin (Romans 8:31-32; Philippians 3:7-14) 9/4/07 BACK

Rinzler, Rick
It would be incredible to hear from anyone. I don't think there's a day that goes by that I don't reminisce about the good ol' days. I can't believe 35 years have already lapsed....and those whom we've lost. With the help of Mr. Volpe (you all remember him, don't you??), I ran away to Michigan State University to become a veterinary orthopedic surgeon; one of only a handful in Michigan. I love it. I married an M.D. from Ann Arbor, and together have had four gorgeous kids...the last one is only five years old.....that's right, I was 49 (she was 47 !!!!). Couldn't possibly love these kids more. I'd love to go back to Wayne some day; but I'm afraid of all the changes I'd discover. Too many good memories of the way it USED to be....don't want to tarnish them. I'd love to hear from you. Butch...where are you? Robin M.? Donna G.? Bob M.? Chris D.? Kenny D.? Suzie DW?

Rowbottom, Michael
I moved to Texas October '71 of my senior year, but had grown up in Wayne and attended Alps Road Elementary (K-6). I went to Montclair Academy for four years and then to Wayne Valley for 11th and part of 12th. I was saddened to read of the deaths of Andy Romanov (my accordian playing friend from Alps Road Elementary) and Gordon Curry (one of my Packanack Lake pals). It is a very nice reunion web site. Some people have done a lot of good work in getting all that together. Without a yearbook to refresh my memory, a lot of the names and pictures weren't familiar. Some that I remember were Ricky Wright, Derek DiRocco, Maryann Saginario, Leslie Foy, & Donna Hempstead.

Update 2007: I am still in Texas and work with a local pharmaceutical company as the Director of Manufacturing. I recently got involved with theatre and film acting (some of my work is listed on the web at imdb.com). I am two semesters away from finishing my MBA (never too late) and my wife Sharon and I are coming up on our 15th anniversary. (updated 2007)

Rynshall, Paul
Keep it clean, hmmmm, now this becomes difficult... Graduated High Point University in North Carolina in 1976 (was just a College back in '76!) with BA in Sociology. A fairly useless degree, but appropriate for those who haven't a clue as to what to do with their lives and a fair indicator of my next 26 professional years. Occupations? How much time do you have? This could take a while. Let's just say Sales & Marketing in a number of differing fields of interest. (Innocuous enough??) A few of the areas I dabbled in: Photocopiers (Mid-town Manhattan right after college - days sucked / nights were great) Tobacco (Forgive me! It was years before the lawsuits and most of us did smoke at one time or another.) Cosmetics (All the buyers were women. Enough said.) Convenience Stores (Worked for 7-11 corporate, not selling coffee behind the counter. Which on second thought might have been better....) Computer Software (Computer games mainly, which was actually pretty cool. At least you're very popular around Christmas time.) Telecommunications (next-gen communications equipment - boorriinggg. yawn) Web Design & Internet Sales (Current occupation is one of Managing Partners in a struggling startup internet concern.) Ok, and while having all that fun, I managed to get married twice, divorced once, blessed with three children Kris-20, Ryan-15 & Melanie-7. (Lost my free subscription to Planned Parenthood magazine with the last one....)But what man can do without Daddy's little girl? I know I couldn't. Career Interests and Hobbies? No, I've never really been interested in a career. And my hobbies are now limited to what my slowly deteriorating body can manage. The contact sports have long since faded away and been replaced by the more leisurely activities of pursuing small round white objects around lovely green pastures or green cement. (Golf and tennis) I think we'll skip over the jail years. (Only kidding) Looking forward to seeing familiar faces again in November. Best to All. BACK
Saginario (Skaflestad), Maryann
So sorry I missed this latest reunion, but I enjoyed seeing the pictures! As for me, life is good now.

I have been living with John Bogle for 7 years (he also had a lousy marriage but has twin daughters, Brittany and Danielle) and we are quite happily unmarried.

Yeskoo, Dona
I just got the idea to check out this web site and am fascinated to read about people I remember from so long ago! I have lived in the Adirondacks for almost 30 years now (as well as five years working for good friends in Buffalo back in the late '70s)-- I always did want to live in a rural setting, and I do! It's great for drawing and painting, for those who might remember that I love to draw. Still do -- for family and friends. Other hobbies -- reading, Civil War History, hiking up SMALL area mountains and walking on nearby mountain trails/roads with friends, and taking lots of photos, too. I love working for Word of Life, a non-profit Christian camping organization -- but no, I don't camp! I work in the office! Turns out I'm EXTREMELY organized, and this helps in a busy office. Am not married; my niece Hana is 22 & married in Dallas, TX, where my sister Dianne lives with her husband, Mark. My folks have retired to Wells, ME -- 5 miles from the ocean -- a great! place to vacation! My youngest sister Carolynn lives there as well. The kids of my friends are grown and marrying themselves -- WOW! The time is flying by, but I'm grateful for each and every day! I have survived early-stage melanoma (1986) and a boat accident that could have been fatal (1988)-- I have a bad back now but you'll hear no complaints from me!! :) (updated 2008) BACK
