Las Vegas NV Design Married 2
I, too, would like to know where the years have gone.   I married Howard Taylor in 1971 and we had 2 beautful daughters, Julie Taylor and Leslie Sullivan.  Leslie and her husband have 3 of the cutest, smartest and the most adorable boys: Shane, Kyle & Max, who are the love of my life.  I am now married to Mel Walker, who has a daughter, Melanie. He has 8 grandchildren from various families (stepchildren) but none of them live in Las Vegas, where we live now.  

After attending Texas Tech for 2 years, I left Lubbock in 1969 to attend the University of Denver and graduated. I have had many professions, but all of them have revolved around design and owning my own businesses in Denver and in Las Vegas.  I lived in Denver for 23 years, and now have been in Las Vegas for 24 yrs.  Yikes...that makes me 10 when I graduated from Lubbock High if  Leslie Ince is correct that the new 67 is 57.

I am so excited about the reunion and look forward to seeing everyone.

Plano TX Retired Married 3
I married Raymond (Ray) Moore, a 1963 graduate, and we will be married 49 Years in May.  We have three children .  Two of them are Texas Tech graduates and the other one is a UTA graduate.  All of them have followed a career in their majors and we are very proud  of each of them.  They have blessed us with seven grandchildren and they are the light of our lives.  Two of them live in Lubbock and we enjoy visiting them and being in our hometown.  We retired in January 2013.

Memories of LHS are numerous and I believe those were the most exciting of my school years.

Lubbock:  Do NOT miss the sand storms we had in the spring.  I do miss being able to sit outside on cool West Texas evenings watching all the stars and being  closer to nature.  ( humidity makes it almost impossible to even go outside in the evenings and living in a large city makes it hard to even see a few stars.). :)

I want to tell Eddie Stiles (my childhood neighbor) how very proud I am that he was selected to do renovations and additions to our LHS.  He has done an outstanding job of keeping all of the architecture blending and all the history flowing.  What an honor and great accomplishment for him and all of us!

 I am looking very forward to being at the reunion and seeing some "older" but familiar faces from the past.

Pipe Creek TX Librarian (Retired) Married 1
After graduating from Tech (where I met my wife Susan), I "volunteered" (lousy draft number) to be a payroll clerk in the Army (a year in the Mekong Delta, another at the Oakland Army Terminal ). I got my degree in library science in '72 from UT Austin (1 year ahead of Laura Bush), and spent most of my career with the San Bernardino County Library in Southern California (cataloger, branch manager, online catalog manager, web page development). I retired 5 years ago. When my wife retired 2 years ago as an elementary school teacher, we moved to the Hill Country NW of San Antonio (between Helotes and Bandera). My son, his wife, and my 3 grandsons live in the Balcones Heights area of San Antonio. My hobbies include star gazing in dark country skies and playing viola at the University of the Incarnate Word.

Sugar Land TX Semi-retired Married 1
Life is exciting for me right now.  I worked for the same company 36 years and retired from there in 2012.  After being single for 35 years, I married Ron(nie) Strader from Lubbock in 2010.  He was living in Colorado and I was in Sugar Land, TX.  Thanks to Facebook we reunited and the rest is history.  We are living in Sugar Land and working part-time at fun retirement jobs.  Unfortunately, we will not be able to attend the reunion … we already had a trip to Kauai scheduled for the following week!  Would love to hear from some of you!

Albuquerque NM Retired Married 2
I attended Tech for one year before marrying Rex Brasell (LHS 1963). We left Lubbock for Questa, New Mexico in 1965, where Rex worked as a pipefitter in the molybdenum mine there. We moved around New Mexico, Louisiana, and Michigan following Rex’s apprenticeship before finally settling in Albuquerque with our year-old daughter in 1969. We had another daughter in 1971 and divorced in 1975. I remained a single parent for 11 years before marrying Sterling Coke in 1986.
 
I received both B.A. (1979) and M.S. (1990) degrees from the University of New Mexico. Now happily retired, I enjoyed an interesting career and retired as Associate Director of the Center for Telehealth at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine.
 
My two daughters live here in Albuquerque with their families, which include three grandsons: Jonah, Rowan and Malcolm. I enjoy volunteering, exercising, reading, travel and spending time with family and friends. Sterling and I have had a lovely life together for the past 28 years, for which I’m grateful.
 
I have a daydream about going back in time to Lubbock High School in my 1964 body, but with my 2014 brain. No longer tethered by adolescent angst, I get to know all my classmates, explore my interests, and have fun, instead of hanging back in a sullen swamp of self-consciousness. Unfortunately, it was what it was. I see the 50th LHS class reunion, however, as another chance and I look forward to seeing everyone.

Pflugerville TX Basic Life Support (BLS) Instructor http://kardiaclifesavers.com/ Married 4
I left Lubbock for the Air Force in 1967.  Turns out I enjoyed the job I did so I made it a career.  Along the way I married the love of my life, Teri (1970) and we had four great kids.  We lived in Illinois, Nebraska, Germany, Dallas, and South Carolina before settling into Pflugerville, Texas (north of Austin and south of Round Rock).  Also known as being between a rock and a weird place.  Teri is a saint for putting up with me for so many years.  Also did a year in Korea. Didn't go to Nam but I have only pride and admiration for all of you who did.

Retired from the Air Force in 1991, finally finished college and went to work for the state.  I went from being a meteorologist in the service to the safety field. I managed the Safety Training and Inspections area for the Texas Department of Insurance/Division of Workers' Compensation/Workplace Safety.  

Sadly, in 1992 we lost our youngest son (age 16) to heart disease.  He had a transplant in 1991 and proved it could work. We are now very active in Parent Heart Watch (PHW).   It's a national organization of parents who have lost their children to sudden cardiac arrest.  PHW helped get AEDs in all the schools in Texas and continues to lobby for help in this area.

In October 2010 our oldest son had a heart transplant.  He is now doing great. Seems we have a genetic situation involving cardiomyopathy.  We thought after Kevin that it was over but I guess life plays tricks on you.

The rest of the family stayed around Pflugerville and we have two wonderful grandkids.  We love to travel so we bought a travel travel and put 7000 miles on it on our first trip last year.  It seems the older I get, the more I enjoy life.

Am now retired and helping with my wife's business: kardiaclifsavers.com.  We are BLS trainers and I am really enjoying it.  Looking forward to seeing everyone in September.

Lubbock TX sales mgr Married 2
I've been in the same business my whole life, and this year took a mini-retirement by working 4 days a week.  More time to beat best friend Tommy Middleton on the golf course. Like most of us at this stage , it's all about the grandkids--from the oldest graduating from law school in Dec, to the youngest starting 1st grade next year.  How fortunate life has been to our family, with 2 happy sons, great daughter-in-laws, and 4 grandkids. Gotta say, i am most famous for my BBQ skills, especially ribs!  We arel looking forward to the reunion--my wife (Class of '65) says ours is the best, and I have to agree. No really i HAVE to agree--makes a 38-year marriage stronger.  See you soon. Send Frank a MessageSend Frank a Message

Mesquite TX Retired Married 4
   After graduation from L.H.S., I attended Lubbock Christian University (Assoc. of Science) and got hours from Texas Tech.  I met and married the most wonderful man on the planet, Claudio De Santis Chisholm, and we moved to Oklahoma to attend Oklahoma Christian University (both--Bachelor of Science in Education).  Our first daughter was born, and Claudio taught school in Edmond I.S.D. while I got my master’s degree from University of Central Oklahoma in Reading Specialty.  Then I taught elementary school in Edmond, too, until we were called to the mission field in Italy.  You would think that we were giving up so much to leave, but the scripture in Matt. 19:29 proved to be more than true.  The Lord gave us miracle after miracle there, and blessed us incredibly for 24 years.
   After working one year in Rome with other missionaries, we moved to our own work in Pescara,Abruzzo, on the Adriatic Coast.  There we had two other children and adopted an Italian son.  Then, to help support our growing family, the Lord gave me a job with a petroleum company as a teacher for 4 students in 4 different grades.  Later they sold me the school.  They made sure that we had everything we needed, and I learned how to run Panterra American School that served various international companies.  All the companies permitted us to teach Bible daily.  Claudio occasionally taught courses for us, and later when we were earning too much money, we supported our own work, leaving our church support when we did not need it anymore.  Then the Lord gave us another school in Avezzano when Texas Instruments opened a plant there.  It was Texas Instruments Avezzano International School, and we were still allowed to teach Bible.  Our churchwork and schoolwork continued in both cities with help from Italian members of the church and our oldest daughter, who carried on with the Pescara school.
   We returned to the States in 1995.  The Lord provided amply for us.  We taught in Christian schools in Lubbock until all our family had moved away and our parents had died.  Then we moved to the Dallas area where we taught school in Dallas I.S.D. and then Terrell I.S.D.  We retired from teaching in June of 2013.  We are now happy to be free to serve the Lord however He might need us, and we are grateful for all the blessings He has given us, which include our oldest daughter, an administrator in an experimental Chinese bilingual school in Shanghai, China;  our middle daughter and her husband, both engineers in Ft. Worth, TX, with our 11 year old granddaughter:  our youngest daughter and her husband, both Spanish teachers in Dubai with our 4 year old granddaughter; and our Italian son, a service company provider for the Italian Postal Service.
   Everything we left in America was replaced by incredible blessings which would take volumes to recount.  The LORD is GOOD!

Lubbock TX Property & Casualty Insurance Manager Married 2
GOD first. Family second. Texas Tech third. LHS '64 fourth. We've nearly come "full circle". As we 'mature', relationships become so much more important. Therefore, the 50th reunion for this class from LHS 1964 is especially meaningful. Leslie (Duckworth) and I have been married for nearly 46 years (what a saint she is). After graduation from Texas Tech, we chose to remain and call Lubbock home. However, our daughter, Amber and her family live in Frisco, Texas, while son, Tyler resides in Miami, Florida. Many of you know sisters married brothers (Max Ince and Mary Ann Duckworth..LHS'62....nearly 49 years together) and continue to share our lives through our children and grandchildren.

Now, I know all of you will try to say your grandchildren are the 'smartest', 'best looking' and 'most athletic' of any and all grandchildren. However, prepare to come in second place in THAT division.

We are truly blessed and are anxious to see our friends from the past who make the present and the future so much fun.

Lubbock TX Retired / Freelancer Single Again 2
Serving on the reunion planning committee has been a more-fun-than-expected experience. I had forgotten that Joe Ince threw 5 intercepted passes in one game when we were at O.L. Slaton, but such comical tidbits surface in our conversations around the planning table. I barely knew committee member Mike Horton in high school, but it has been a pleasure to get to know him 50 years later....maybe because he has such nice things to say about my mother as his English teacher! Considering one of mother's students once threw a molotov cocktail and blew off our front porch, it's nice to hear Mike's good memories. I've spent 40 years working as a journalist at the University of Georgia, Mississippi State, Ohio University, Texas A&M, and Texas Tech. I retired in December from Texas Tech as Director of Official Publications. Now I get to be a freelancer and visit my grandchildren.
