Joys, difficulties and major events
Life is good. My kids are well launched and doing very well. My grandkids, ranging in age from 21 to 4 are terrific (much more bragging to follow at PM.) Work was mostly good and bounced from university teaching to 30 years in industry in Marketing and Strategic Planning at PepsiCo, General Foods, Citibank, consulting etc. Came full circle to teach again at Univ. of Chicago; and continued at UNC and Duke after moving to Chapel Hill, NC for “retirement”.
We were really lucky and retired early –age 56 and have been an active goof off since.
However, 2010 really sucked: Prostate cancer surgery, acute clinical depression, blood clots in leg, and atrial Fib.—all in all –a real write off of a year.
Fortunately, all is good now. I am back to playing a lot of tennis, auditing 5 classes at UNC and teaching in a program at Duke.
We’ve really been lucky (and luck is always better than skill) over all the years since high school.
Audit and teach classes, community service, play tennis, visit grandkids, goof off

Majored in Chinese at U of M - including a year in Taiwan; studied Chinese history at Columbia during the 1967 riots; used all that education to raise 4 kids in New Rochelle, NY. Numbers 3 & 4 are African American and adopted. Number 5 came to us 10 years ago, due to deaths in the family. All those kids, and no grandkids - go figure. Our oldest suffered a brain injury some years ago. Watching after her, taking care of our homes, enjoying the arts, and reading keep me happily busy. My creed is to find something to laugh about every day because life is serious business.

Spent some time in the flooring business with Armstrong and they moved us around a few times in the early years. Married Peggy in 1965. Have a daughter and 3 grandsons who live in Cincinnati, about 2 hours away. Moved to Louisville in 1969 and have enjoyed being here. Patti Olson was here for awhile and Joanne Fay Lyons and Dave, too. Looking forward to seeing everyone in October.

I lived in NYC and now in Ridgewood, NJ practicing litigation with a law firm and then a life insurance company. I have a wonderful family with my wife Diane, four daughters (ages 18 to 41) and two small dogs. I am now studying Spanish, doing hiking, swimming, Tai Chi and transporting patients at a hospital.
firstname.lastname@example.org Retired Mag Publisher Married 1 2012-07-10 14:58:41I don't think I have been to any HGHS reunion activities since about the 25th which I believe was held at the Elks Club in Mt. Kisco. Yes, I still have the mustache--snowy white
Since the last reunion we have moved about a little. In 1994, I sold my equity in a publishing operation I had helped start to the Kiplinger Newsletter folks in Washington and returned to Inc. magazine where earlier I had been the Associate Publisher. The return to Inc. magazine did mean moving into a new area of publishing as VP of brand management and new product development. But it turned out to be a spectacular move. However, it also meant that we would finally (after a lifetime in Westchester) have to make our final move elsewhere--in this case to Boston. (In retrospect we love and miss Westchester but not all the NYC metro hassle).
Our son, Sander was finishing up at St. Lawrence and he was also moving to Boston for another degree at Northeastern--so the timing was perfect. We lived north of Boston until 2001 and then moved to Kennebunk, Maine when Inc. magazine was sold to a German firm.
Fortunately, I was asked to stay on with Inc. to essentially do the same thing but now working from Maine and commuting to NYC every few weeks. However, even as exciting as the work was we finally tossed in the towel three years ago when I turned 65 so we could do other things. For the last fifteen years I have been a very active painter studying near Boston in my spare time as well as with an artist in San Miguel de Allende in Mexico where we go for a stretch each winter. I am making some progress and always seemingly able to sell three or four paintings each year--which is very gratifying and keeps me going.
Jean and I are also heavily engaged in community work here in Kennebunk and I realized something recently, that after close to forty plus years of travel and work all over the country and the world--I am finally getting to know folks in my own community the way I once did in Chappaqua. It has been wonderful becoming part of a small town again. All that and and of course we are so enjoying our granddaughter who is about to turn two and who we see quite often.
Our health is good and we realized every day how blessed we have been. Not sure we will make it to the reunion because as Class Agent, I am working on my college reunion which falls the following weekend in Vermont. That said, we will try and make it even we decide at the last moment.
John, great hearing from you. Best wishes for the holidays. Best wishes to the Class of '61 And Cheers for the New Year
January 14, 1943 email@example.com retired Married 3 2012-07-10 14:49:06I'm retired and living in Chesapeake Va. It's a good place. I've got the Blue Ridge Mountains to the West where I hike and camp and Cape Hatteras to the South where my son and I scuba dive on some of the best wreck sites in the world ("Grave yard of the Atlantic"). Winter stinks here with 40 degree weather and no snow, but I've got a pop up camper that I head south in whenever I get cabin fever. My wife has a fetish for indoor plumbing, so she never goes with me. She also claims that she can't stand being in close quarters with me for that long. Can't understand it. My dog never complains. Have really enjoyed seeing the pictures and profiles of all of you.
November 06, 1943 firstname.lastname@example.org Chairman, President/CEO www.demoulin.com Married 3 2012-07-10 14:59:26After graduating HG, Jan Kraemer and I headed to Mexico to study at the National University and begin lifes grand adventure. While Jan stayed eventually marrying and raising a family there, I returned to go to college in Massachusetts where I met my lovely wife Nancy.
My career started in sales in NY with Procter & Gamble, then RJR and Welch's which took us to San Francisco, and Chautauqua County in western NY. Then on to St Louis to run an operating company for Con Agra and a division of Nestle. In 1995 our family acquired DeMoulin Bros., a uniform manufacturing and marketing company. Products include marching band uniforms, concert wear,public safety uniforms and work wear uniforms.
Nancy and I are now out of the day to day business operations, which allows us to spend more time with our children, their spouses and our five wonderful (aren't they all?) grandchildren. We split our time between St Louis and Fort Myers, FL enjoying our friends in boating, travel, sports car related activities and working on our "bucket list".
I have the pleasure of serving on the boards of a special needs school and a regional trade association as part of giving something back to the community.
Life is good and we look forward to seeing everyone at the re-union.

Barbara McCoy (Gartner)
March 25, 1943 firstname.lastname@example.org retired Married 3 2012-07-10 14:59:29After graduation, I headed for Northwestern University, but it was cold there. So after two years, I transferred to the University of Southern California, where I got bachelor's and master's degrees in English Literature. After graduation, I joined the news staff of The Wall Street Journal in suburban San Francisco, and in 1967, I transferred to the Journal's New York office, where I became the first female hired for the national editing staff since WWII.
At the Journal, I met Michael Gartner, an editor there, and we were married on May 25, 1968. (The cake said "Happy birthday, Craig, as May 25 was also my brother's birthday.) The Journal formally scrapped its anti-nepotism policy when we got married, which was our contribution to the feminist movement of the 1960s.
In January of 1974, we moved to Des Moines, my husband's hometown, and he became executive editor, then editor, then president of The Des Moines Register and Tribune. I then set out on a career of raising children, herding dogs and cats, volunteering for various organizations and, ultimately, heading several community boards involved in education, the arts, or social services.
In 1975, we adopted a four-year-old girl, who came with a name, Melissa. In 1976, we adopted a newborn boy, Christopher, and in 1979 another baby boy, Mike. Christopher died in 1994, at age 17 of an initial attack of juvenile diabetes. He was a big, strapping, happy boy one day, and he died the next. It was an unfathomable tragedy, but ultimately the happy memories have softened the terribly sad ones.
Tim Russert of NBC was a family friend, and the day Christopher died, Tim called in tears. "If God had come to you 17 years ago and said, 'I'll make you a bargain. I'll give you a beautiful, wonderful, happy and healthy kid for 17 years, and then I'll take him away,' Tim said "you would have made that deal in a second." He was right, of course, and we were blessed to have such a fine son for those brief years.
Our kids and our three grandchildren--4, 2, and 9 months--all live near us, so we are blessed. In the past year, I've gotten a new hip (I tripped over the cat) and a new knee (arthritis), and I've cut back a little on my community work. I spend much of each winter in Maui, near where my parents lived until they died. I was lucky to grow up in Chappaqua and to go to Greeley, and I've been pretty lucky ever since. At age 68, I'm healthy--the body parts that have gone bad are replaceable ones--and happy. What more could I ask?
September 25, 1943 email@example.com National Coordination Office, www.nitrd.gov Committed Relationship 3 2012-07-10 14:45:07I find I am busier than ever. I oversee for the EOP all the Federal agency programs in networking technology, healthcare IT, supercomputing, cloud computing and international cooperation in IT. I'm trying to transition in the next generation of techies so I can eventually retire. I took up swimming later in life and compete in Masters swimming throughout the world. My kids and grandkids are amazing. I am rescuing an architect's California contemporary house from the abuse it took for many years and enjoy all the windows, trees, foxes, deer, ...I sure look forward to seeing you all again. My picture is from Christchurch. What a beautiful place.
