Yes! Attending Reunion
Residing In: Burleson, TX USA
Occupation: Pharmaceutical Microbiologist
Children: I was married 35 years to a lady I met at the University of Texas. We were married in 1963, but divorced More…in 1998; I have 5 children; 19 grandchildren; My 4 daughters [Julie 1966, Rebecca 1968, Catherine 1971, Charlotte 1972] live in Texas with their families and my son, Jonathan [1980] and his family live in Rutland, MA. All my kids graduated from college [4 from Univ of Texas and my son from Texas A&M]. I have been with my partner, Clifford, since 1999 and we live in Burleson, Texas.

I received three degrees from the University of Texas: my BA in Zoology in 1965; my MA in Microbiology in 1968 and my PhD in microbiology in 1970. I attended Harvard Business School in 1989 when the Berlin Wall fell and we had the San Francisco earthquake. It is easy to remember when I went to Harvard. I worked for a pharmaceutical company [Alcon Laboratories] for 39 years and retired in 2009. I consider myself a research pharmaceutical microbiologist....yes...all that. I have been a director and past President of the Harvard Business School Club of Fort Worth. Now, I spend time for conservative political causes and am very active in the tea party movement. I am currently President of the Texas Patriots Tea Party.[]. Check it out.

School Story:

I am a party crasher. I attended Emerson School from 3rd grade to sixth with many of you. I noticed that it is now some kind of Islamic center. I went to Benjamin Franklin Jr High for 7th and 8th grades and on to Teaneck HS for 9-11th. My family moved to Houston Texas between my 11th-12th grade and I ultimately graduated from Bellaire HS in Houston. Being there for only one year, I have no allegiance to Bellaire, but have fond memories of my time in Teaneck. So, I actually didn't graduate from Teaneck HS, but appreciate being included in this esteemed group of people.

So sorry to hear that my Teaneck neighbor on Maple Avenue has passed away.

I had seen her at our 50th Reunion in 2011. Of course, we remembered the old times at Grace Lutheran Church.

I've included a few snaps that might be nice to remember Barbara by.
