Jeremy Ball
Marital Status: Divorced/Single
Children: yes
Occupation: Motivational Speaker, LifeCoach, Consultant & Analyst in El Segundo, CA and Las Vegas
Reunion: I welcome contact from any and all that would like to say hello and catch up. 35 yrs of life-experiences would be fascinating to learn about.
Comments: It's been said that those we REALLY wanted to stay in contact with from the past, we have. It's also been said that with a graduating class as LARGE as ours, combined with the 2 before us and 2 after us, to stay in touch with more than a handful would be difficult. My youngest just moved out leaving me with considerable more time to reconnect with any of those that might wish to reconnect with me. I wonder (scratching head) if we have grown and matured beyond the high school level, or if we revert back to those days. Hmmmmm

Tony Beach
2319 Grape Street
Denver, CO 80207-3253
Marital Staus: Divorced/Single
Children: Jonel 1980, Sean 1982, Allegra 1996
Occupation: Artist-Designer
Comments: I moved to Denver, Colorado in '78 as a graphic designer which pursued for a number of years. I later segued into the hands-on artistic side of interior design for another number of years providing decorative and faux finishes, and imaginative installations of unusual architectural elements from places like Indonesia, Morocco and India, along with my own creations such as bas relief plaster carvings and mosaic and broken tile work with inspirations such as the late Spanish architect, Antoni Gaudi, whose wild work adorns much of Barcelona. I've enjoyed being at play with artistic accents I'd guess could be described as warm and somewhat intriguing, eclectic, exotic and enchanting expressions in small restaurants and people's homes. Now it's a Hodgepodge of Everything, including web design and fine and visionary art that keeps me busy. Still pondering how the implicit and the explicit worlds interrelate, what's at play as we journey down the rabbit holes of our lives from time-to-time, and how we can all find ways to do our own creative thing to engage and help evolve world culture instead of losing it altogether -- while enjoying the love, peace, joy and compassion we find at home in the heart of our own backyards. I've enjoyed visits over the years with Doug Ruygrok, Robert Hand, and Jana Richards Lanigan here in Denver, as well as contact with others from afar such as Paul Birchard in Glasgow, Scotland and Nancy (Anderson) Avesidian in Santa Fe. My older two wonderful children are busy developing their careers, and I'm lovingly involved in raising my youngest beautiful creative daughter, Allegra (Alli), as she begins her segue into the teenage years.

Reunion: What a great 30th reunion! And how great to hear about the lives we're all living! I'll look forward to the 35th! I'm in the midst of a career change out of research and into something more creative and with more "face time" with people. I'm the creator of the Loving Home Workshops and consulting services. We integrate principles of psychology and personal growth with design and architecture to help people envision and create their "dream home" (in a new construction or remodel) that expresses their truest self. Also doing similar things in work environments, but it is the home environments that are the most satisfying to me. Peace and blessings to all! Love, Karen [September 29, 2002]

Comments: We resided on Orange Avenue in La Crescenta up until 2000, then it was off to the Denver area for new opportunities. Colorado living is great, often fantastic. A little snow never hurt anyone from CA...well, until it's four feet deep and you have to shovel it off your driveway. I travel back and forth to Burbank on business all the time, so I get to see family and friends (old and new) quite often. {October 9, 2007]

John Dunlap

died in 2000 from a devastating long battle with colon cancer. I remember all the drag racing we did in Silver Lake and at the many street races we were all intensely into. A bit of humor, we used the 118 as a drag strip from Ramsdale to La Crescenta when it was dirt for racing! It wasn't all sex, drugs and rock n roll!

I am recently re-married, however still miss John.

Comments: Hello everyone! It's hard to believe so much time has passed. We have all changed, grown, lived and loved. We have acquired more wrinkles, gray hair, scars and tattoos. Some of us have kids and grand-kids, some of us have lost loved ones and found new loves. Some of our dear classmates have passed on. Life moves on and we move with it. My life continues to evolve, like a butterfly emerging from a chrysalis. Sometimes it's messy and confusing; other times wonderful and exciting. Through it all I hold on to the Lord; my refuge and my strength. My three sons are grown men and my three grandchildren are blossoming. I continue to travel and explore the wild side of nature. It brings healing and hope into my life. Blessings to you and yours. May you enjoy the coming years to the fullest. Susan Fimbres Little [December 28, 2011]

Comments: It makes me sad to update this page as Bob passed away 1-9-08, ultimately from complications of the heart transplant in 1999, tho in reality he was having an allergic reaction that Verdugo Hills Hospital didn't take seriously enough! Be careful you folks who still live on the Rock & take care of your health so you don't have to go to Verdogo Hills! [April 18, 2008]
