Class of 1964 Fifty-Year Reunion in 2014!

Seems like yesterday, doesn't it? OK, maybe a few years ago. But not 50!

So in honor of that milestone, we're planning a weekend of fun celebrations beginning with Friday, June 20. Continuing with our tradition of a Friday night casual ice breaker, this time at the Montrose Bowl, we'll have pizza, salad and garlic bread. They have soft drinks, beer and wine. And if you want music, there is a juke box. Either Friday or Saturday daytime we are planning a tour of the CV campus (you wouldn't recognize the place!) with maybe lunch afterward. We are also talking about the possibility of a golf tournament on whichever day the school tour isn't scheduled.

Saturday night is a dinner buffet at the beautiful Angeles National Golf Club. The setting is spectacular &endash; right in the middle of the old Tujunga wash with a Jack Nicklaus-designed 18-hole golf course attached. Check it out! www.angelesnational.com/

To wind down the weekend on a more casual, laid back note, we'll do a picnic at CV Park on Sunday afternoon.

Reservations are already made for Friday night at the Montrose Bowl and Saturday night at the Angeles Golf Club. The possible golf tournament and campus tour dates are still undecided right now.

We hope to do a lot of the information electronically by way of the school alumni website, Classmates and Facebook. We still have mailing addresses from the 40th reunion and will compare them to who is on those pages. Later this year or early next year we'll post a list of classmates who have not been located. Word-of-mouth is a great way to get the word out; get folks in touch. Contact information will also be given to the school. This flyer will be posted on facebook and CV Alumni pages -- www.cvfalconsalumni.com/new/ -- and any place else we can think of!

Here's to a fantastic 50-year celebration!

Steve Golsh
Died in Vietnam War

After high school, Steve attended Oregon State University, and graduated with a B.S. degree in Entomology.

Steve served with the 101st Airborne in Vietnam. Known in Vietnam as "Bug Man" by fellow soldiers and Vietnamese children, he collected specimens of insects and butterflies, and kept a day-to-day journal of his experiences there.

Steve was killed March 21, 1970, in the A Shau Valley, Vietnam, 11 days before his scheduled return to the states. He was the sole casualty of a night ambush, and was awarded the bronze star for courageously giving warning to his fellow soldiers.

Remembered by his sister Paula, Class of 1966
[May 28, 2001]

In his personal diary, Steve penned the following poem

During my early morning guard I contemplated immortality and death.
Out there was the forest - the tiger, the python, and the Gook.
All of them deadly, and all of them hunters in their own right.

What is life's purpose?
To hunt one another, to survive?
To live and die, that is all.
No one is immortal, and death is inevitable.

Thus one must live to the fullest, and when one's time comes to die,
He should do so with purpose and courage. Live hard and die hard.
Leave more than faint footprints in the sand.
Leave dents in mountains and the minds of men, your race, and your kind.
This is how I choose to live, and this is how I choose to die.

So it will be.

Comments: My primary objective in signing in here was trying to locate Julie Acheson. That was four years ago and she hasn't signed up yet unfortunately. I haven't seen her since the late '60s and would love to say hello. I've searched all the maiden name directories I can locate and have come up with nothing tangible. Any help would be greatly appreciated. As for me, I've lived on an island in the Florida Keys for years, which isn't bad in and of itself. For the most part I've been extraordinarily lucky and very happy. I've been married forever to the same person. I have three fabulous, brilliant, witty, articulate children - and one grandchild who can be described in exactly the same way. I have no complaints. It was definitely a walk down memory lane looking through the pictures and names, all so familiar seeming, but of another time of my life. I was taken aback by the number of deaths when looking through the class, especially the women. How did that happen? It feels to me as if we're still so very young. I guess it's about that inside joke (on us) about your mind never aging that we finally understand after it's too late to tell all those 'old' people we get it. I get it now. [March 2, 2009]

Reunion: Thank you, Regent Baird for informing me of this web page as I found it all so interesting, especially living so very far away from Crescenta Valley High School. Came to Australia in 1971 to teach and here I still am. Living pretty much in the outback, my brother Dan calls it the Ponderosa with our 4 sons and Co. I was really impressed with how so many alumni have taken the time to keep in touch and how much work the organizers must put into all the reunions. Only sorry, my visits back to the states haven't corresponded with the reunions. What fun they must be..I sure will endeavour to make the big 2004.

Comments: The shy geek with the turquoise Jeep. I decided to update this as my wife has gotten into her 40th reunion and its been fun. After graduation I trained as a machinist at Lockheed Aircraft in Burbank then spent 4 years in the Air Force. I returned to Burbank and attended Glendale City College majoring in Engineering until a Lockheed RIF in 69.  I changed my major to Education and moved to Utah. I graduated from BYU in Provo, UT. in 74 teaching Science in junior and senior high for 5 years. Teaching in Utah is difficult large class sizes and low pay. I did engineering on the side building ultra light aircraft and designing castings for a local foundry. I ended up at Williams International for the last 23 years designing and making casting for jet engines. I have recently retired Sept. 09. I played, coached, & refereed soccer until 3 years ago. Since then I have returned to my love of off-road exploration and geology. As soon as Bonnie retires we plan to spend winters in Mexico. [October 8, 2009]

Occupation: Author and Computer Science instructor for UCLA Extension

Comments: My family had just relocated from Glendale (former high school was Hoover, and friends connected back to grade school), and I joined CVHS as an 11th grade Junior. The change was a big adjustment and the work challenge in 11th grade was at an all-time high and mental immersion for me. My history instructor, Fred Mabbutt, stands out as the most memorable and outstanding instructor (including years at graduate school) I ever had. History had always been my worst subject, and getting an A in his class was every bit as rewarding to me as getting a PhD. Bill Thomas also stands out in my mind. Wouldn't it be great to arrange getting together for a visit with him? I had previously been enrolled in Doris Ferguson's class, did especially well on one of her assignments, and was transferred to Bill's class. What especially stands out in my mind was his beating his fist on the lectern when passionately making a point. Another event concerning him was his driving me home on one occasion and giving me a paperback of Honore de Balzac. Cecil Gutierrez, my physics instructor, introduced me to computers when he drove me on one occasion to L.A. State (now Cal State University, L.A.) to attend one of his night classes, and to show me the computer lab. That evening it became completely clear that I had come face to face with my destiny. The computer field has been a joy ride for me ever since. To make matters even more incredible, Cecil lived across the street from Cal State and let me park in his driveway the full four years I went there, completing my B.S. in Mathematics in 1968. Girls were distant from my thoughts until graduate school at Harvard University where I completed my M.S. in Applied Mathematics in 1969. While back home in California for the summer I became smitten with a Big Boy's hamburger waitress, learned she had moved to Salt Lake City Utah, and decided to switch to University of Utah so I could continue seeing her. Ain't love grand! The romance was short-lived, but I got a Ph.D. in Computer Science out of the deal in 1971, by programming a computer to play an electronic organ. Back home, I talked All Saint's Episcopal Church in Pasadena into letting me hook up a computer to their 90-rank Schlicker Pipe organ, put on two public concerts, got some TV coverage, and produced two record albums: not very profitable financially, but a great deal of fun. I'm now married to Marcia, and we recently celebrated our 14th anniversary on August 26, 2009. Marcia should receive an honorary doctorate in "Kindology." I've always loved the bumper sticker "Practice Random Acts of Kindness and Senseless Acts of Beauty." And, after seeing it on a random car I went in search for one of my own. Visiting Marcia at her work for lunch, and taking her back to her office afterward, that saying was scrolling across her computer screen as her screen saver. I knew it was a sign ... a scrolling sign to boot ... and my destiny again became completely clear. The moment I got back to my office, I called her (4:10 pm, December 7, 1993) and proposed to her on the spot, and I've been an extraordinarily happy man ever since. Old CVHS school mates and teachers that come to mind for me include Ray Haack (Chemistry instructor), Penelope Greenman (English), William Inhelder (Calculus), Bob Medders, Art Zygielbaum, Dave Shride (born on the same day as me, tragically killed in a car accident at age 24), Steve Caren, Jim Nestel, Carolyn Caldwell, Bob Shigley, Kurt Bareg (some of these spellings may be wrong), Kriste Mencher (her married name ... a couple of doors down from us in the neighborhood), Larry Hobbs, and Rhio Ossola. Finally, I've just completed a new book on the C++ programming language, already available from Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=978-1890774547&x=0&y=0[October 1, 2009]

Reunion: Had a great time at the reunion! It was so great to see so many of our (sister, Janet's, and my) old neighborhood friends from different classes. Reminisced about our neighborhood plays in the garage. Guess that's the reason my sons are in the entertainment business. Scott (29) is a singer/songwriter in his band, Silvereign, and David (27) is a writer/director/actor. He has an independent film that is out there. Soon to be on the independent film channel. He is working on a new film to be shot in August - writer and director. Look for him on a Taco Bell commercial. His line, "Where do we go next?" Had fun at a post reunion lunch with Carolyn Troester, Chris deRenne, Debi French, Heidi Jacoby, and Mary Ann Phelps. Gave us a chance to catch up in greater depth. Of course life has changed since 9/11 and it has been nice to be in touch with old friends through e-mail. I will continue doing presentations on learning disabilities and Bob, my husband, is working very hard heading up a company that works with cities to service loans for affordable housing, AmeriNational Community Services, Inc. Hope what we do helps a little. I close hoping you were not personally touch by the tragic events (We lost one friend and Bob, a business associate). My heart goes out to all. Carry on and be well.

George Lowe

Aurora, CO 80016
Marital Status: Divorced/Remarried
Spouse Name: Carole (Freund)
Children: Rick 1969, Scott 1971, Mike 1986, Kris 1990
Occupation: Pilot for United Airlines

Every once in a while our lives are touched by someone so special it's hard to put into words the effect they have had on us.
One of life's 'lights' went out on May 3rd, 2010 with the passing of George Lowe to pancreatic cancer.
When talking with friends about George, every single one of them used the same 3 words to describe him: teacher, mentor and friend - and they talked about the life lessons he taught them. His basic set of rules: rule #1 - don't sweat the small stuff; and rule #2 - it's all small stuff.

He never worried about the things he couldn't change. He said that if you don't like the situation you're in, you only have two choices - you can change the situation or you can change your attitude. For things that didn't matter, his attitude was "if 70 is passing, 71 is overkill". But for things that did matter, specifically like flight safety, he never compromised. And he always thought of others first, even in his final days, no matter how bad he himself was feeling.

One of George's life goals was to retire as a Captain 3 ways, and he accomplished all three. He retired as a Captain in the US Navy, a Captain with United Airlines, and as a skilled sailing captain.

George had an incredibly positive attitude. He loved life and lived it every day. Or, as ourr sister Fran said, "He lived large". When he was diagnosed with cancer he really demonstrated this attitude when he said, "You don't stop living just because you're dying", and he lived that philosophy to the end. He never gave up, living for 3? years when he was originally given 3 months.

George is survived by his wife Carole, sons Rick (40), Scott (39), and Mike (23), and daughter Kris (20). He is also survived by his mother Betty, sister Fran (CV '66), and brother Mike (CV '63).

As his son Rick said, "He was a good man and a great father. He will be missed but never forgotten." And from son Scott, "I just hope I can live up to his example".

Marital Status: single

Sue passed away sadly in 1993. She brought laughter to so many of us over the years. During our senior year, Sue was the MVP on our Girl's Football Team against Lynn MacDonald's side. Though we spent the whole time laughing, I think we came out victorous on that day. Sue left two beautiful daughters who must be very grown up by now. I just wanted to make mention of Sue's passing as I'm sure many of us have fond memories of her, I know I do. Penny (Higson) Tweedie
