February 23, 1955 Software Engineer Married 2
After graduating from MHS, I briefly attended SRJC as a Math major before dropping out to attend the School of Life (aka the School of Hard Knocks). Several years in the restaurant business left me with advanced degrees in “Dealing with the Public,” and “Throwing Pizza Dough.”
A fortunate turn of events  happened when I was hired at the (then) new HP facility in Santa Rosa. HP (now Agilent Technologies) fosters an environment very conducive to continuing education and I took full advantage of the programs offered to me and first earned an AS degree in Electronic Technology from SRJC providing me the opportunities to work as both a line technician and later, as a technical writer for many years.
Throughout the years at HP/Agilent, I discovered that I loved programming and so, about 8 or 10 years ago, I decided to take the plunge and get a BS degree in Computer Science (with a minor in Mathematics).  It was a long ride due to working full time, having a family and elderly parents to consider, but I just graduated from SSU in December, 2011. I “walked” for the graduation ceremony in May of this year.

I have been working in Marketing at Agilent for the last 25 years and LOVE my job. I get to travel occasionally for work, and some of the more interesting places I’ve visited are Malaysia, Japan, Germany, Estonia and Finland. I will be starting a new job as a software engineer at Agilent in the next couple of months. I'm really excited about getting to write code for a living!
I’ve been married to my husband, Richard, for 25 years this year (met him at HP) and we have a 23-year old daughter, Andrea, and he came already equipped with a daughter who is 29, Sonja. We like to travel (but never enough) and have a mountain cabin that we enjoy spending time at. I also help care for my 90-year-old mom who lives in Healdsburg. (My dad passed from Alzheimer’s last year.)

October 13, 1954 Electrician Committed Relationship 3
Wow. After Montgomery, dabbled in work and school. ( mechanics, labor & electronics) Started apprenticeship in '75, quit a perfectly good job and moved to Idaho in '81. Married Sandy Gale in '82, raised two girls and a boy in Northern Idaho. Worked mostly as electrician for manufacturing and lumber production. Parted amicably (divorced) in Y2K and I moved to Santa Cruz. Put my tools on and have been "buildin 'merika" in the Bay Area since. Sorry I missed the 40th, maybe a 45th potluck somewhere?

November 27, 1954 Professor Married
Where to start....I've had a great life, full of fun, laughter, love, and professional satisfaction. After graduating from Montgomery I went to Chico State as a VERY young 17 year old freshman. It was not a good fit for me, and I ended up transferring to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. When I arrived there it is was the feeling of finding "my people".  What I didn't find was what I wanted to do with my life, but I did manage to graduate with a degree in Interior Design. I went to work as an assistant buyer in home furnishings, then got married and moved to Sacramento. That marriage didn't last, but I got the bargain of the century in two wonderful kids (now grown). In Sacramento I started teaching Interior Design at American River College as an adjunct professor, and at last felt I had found my niche. I love teaching! I remarried when the kids were little, and have been married to John ever since... just celebrated 25 years. We live in the quiet town of Sutter Creek (2,200 population) in a restored Victorian which is in the 24th year of our 5 year re-model.  He is the ultimate adventurer and has provided us with more "once in a lifetime" experiences than I can count. When the kids were little we took them snow skiing, camping, hiking in the wilderness, white water river rafting, and dragged them on our European explorations. We have one child together, now 23, who has been all over the world with us. I feel truly blessed to have been able to teach part-time for 20 years and attend all the not-to-be-missed award ceremonies, cub scout meetings, bake-sales and football games that are all part of growing up. When our youngest entered 6th grade I accepted a full-time teaching position at American River College in Sacramento. (Yes, the commute is a killer, but I'm used to it and listen to lots of books on tape). I'm now head of the Fashion department and have had the satisfaction of seeing it grow from a tiny department of 50 students to over 300. I still have those long wonderful summers and plan on continuing to travel with my newly retired husband. This summer we kicked off his retirement with a cruise to Scandinavia and Russia (I actually taught watercolor painting onboard the ship), explored Norway and Sweden on our own, then immediately came home and headed for Alaska where we did a wilderness raft trip down the Alsek river. It was a three week trip...now THAT is a lot of camping. I don't know exactly what is ahead, but I'm looking forward to it.  We are enjoying our children tremendously; they all have jobs and are happy, and we are expecting our first grandchild in November. Life is good! Send Bonnie a MessageSend Bonnie a Message

September 01, 1954 retired Married 2
Where has the time gone?? When I graduated my folks seemed "old"...now I'm almost twice their age at that time...It's amazing how our perspective changes with age...First and foremost, it is my sincere wish that whomever is reading this is in good health and is doing well. That being said I have no complaints. Been married to the same woman 30 years, been blessed with a son now 29 and daughter 26 years of age. Both are doing well. Son still single and daughter married with two little girls. My wife is a Human Resources Specialist and has been very successful at what she does. It's been a little hard on her since I retired because she wants to retire as well but has several more years to put into her profession. I finished up my last stint as a superintendent for a major contractor in Oregon and Washington about two years ago. I closed up my contracting business in CA. and moved my family to Washington State in 1996 to take a job building clean rooms for Intel and other major players in the chip industry. Really different from high rise work, but very rewarding. We own a home with three acres in the Columbia Gorge where the views of the river and Mt. Hood are unbelievable. Just too bad it rains sooooo much here...I tell folks back home we moved to God's urinal...very beautiful...also very wet...  
We have four Great Danes, one Boston/Frenchie mix, two cats and a pot-bellied pig. Quite a managery...They all get along pretty well. I still enjoy fast and classic cars and bikes. As a family we got into the sand toys pretty hot and heavy. Built a rail and had five quads. all of that went away when the kids moved out. Been entertaining a pipe dream for several years to get a small home on Roatan or the Gold Coast of Costa Rica. Would've made the move when I retired, but the wife won't move away from the kids and granddaughters...go figure...Well, sorry if I bored you. I look forward to hearing from anyone that wants to reply. Sure hope to see you all at the reunion and take care!!
