This comment is from Derald Hoffman a teacher of many of you at Grant Jr. High and again at Littleton High School.  I looked through the pictures of the class and remember so many of you from the class of '62.  It was my second year at LHS.  I started a Ski Club in 1960 and many of you were in the Ski Club.  In the winter of '61 we had 22 trips to the ski areas.  We started a racing club, but I think it was after all of you graduated.  I live in Castle Rock, CO. and my phone number is 303-683-6631 and my e-mail   HoffmanHaus1@comcast.net.  Would love to hear from any of you who remember me.

Dear Classmates... I look forward to our 50th class reunion! My favorite teacher was Miss Carolyn McClure, the drama teacher, who type-cast ed me in the role of Laura in the Jr. Class play, Glass Menagerie,
(favorite memory), when I arrived at LHS my junior year, ( painfully shy).
My two best friends from LHS, Lea Ann Moldenhauer Maguire and Nancy Mattingly also arrived at LHS in the 11th grade and the three of us became best friends. Sadly, they both passed away much too young! How I wish they could attend! So I'm writing this to let you know a little about their lives after graduation.
Lea Ann was my best friend. We both went to CU at Boulder. After our freshman year, Lea Ann took a job as a stewardess for UAL and was based in NYC. I stayed at CU for another year; enjoying being a pompom girl and the great frat parties. Then I too, join UAL and was based out of EWR, but lived in Manhattan.
Lea Ann returned to Denver and married her college sweetheart, Brian Maguire, an attorney in Denver. They had three beautiful little girls, Kerry, Megan, and Belle. How I loved visiting them. Lea Ann loved being a mother!
After my plane crash Nov. 11, 1965 in Salt Lake, thanks to God, I survived and 6 mos later I took a job on the ground. Both Lea Ann and Nancy were in my first wedding to Ed Iacino in May of '68, (a very brief marriage).
Lea Ann and Brian came out to Marina del Rey, Ca to vacation with my second husband, Pat Sevedge, and I. (We had a happy marriage for 10yrs.). On another occasion the four of us met in Puerto Vallarta for a few days. We stayed very close till her death, at the age of 36 yrs. when Lea Ann, tragically, was killed in a head-on collision by a drunken truck driver. Brian died a couple of years later. I've stayed in touch with their daughters. Kerry had two son, the eldest Brian was also killed by a drunk driver at the age of 21yrs just a year ago in June. Her other son, Tanner is attending college. Megan was born on my birthday, May 13th, so we feel very close. She has been out several times, including helping me when I was recently home from the hospital and helpless. She will be attending the reunion with me in honor of her mother's memory. Belle married Devin Barber in Costa Rica a few years ago and I had the honor to attend. I'm happy to have them all in my life.
Nancy Mattingly took a job flying for Continental Air Lines after 2 yrs at, (I believe... if my memory serves me), Colorado Women's College. She flew the govt route charters to Hawaii and Asia which she thoroughly enjoyed! I'm not sure of the actual date she died of cancer but it was sometime in her 30's. We spoke several times, but weren't able to connect in person much. Wish I had more to share for her.
After 33yrs of mostly part-time with the airlines, I took an early retirement which enabled me the opportunity to finish my deceased father's book, Marathon Dancer, The Bille Steele Story. While working on it, I was
inspired to turn it into a musical and started writing songs. If interested in hearing four songs or more about the book, my web site is www.marathondancer.com . The book is finished but as of yet, it is the great unfinished musical, but who knows.
I've done a couple commericals and several episodes of Desperate Housewives, including the final episode( as featured background actor), plus a Mad Man and a good spot on one of the last "24". It's just a little something to do part-time to bring in a little extra money, but fun.
I had a very bad boating accident a year ago July 5th, (guess you could say I'm accident prone) almost lost my leg but am doing better. I'm selling my home because of the stairs; it's due to close on Sept 10th if all goes well. Hoping to buy a new home in the desert. My mother and brother are there. Mom is 91yrs and still drives. It would be nice to be close to her at this time. I'm limping just like Laura in the junior class play, but hope to dance with Gary Galbreath at the reunion.
If you have had the fortitude to read through this, God Bless you! Hope to see you at the reunion!
Wishing you and your families Health and Happiness always!

One day after school in our junior year Denny Rethmeier and I went target practicing. We were accompanied by Vicki Beeman and Barbara Tiren. We had with us, among others, a gun that shot only blanks and decided it would be very funny to stage an argument and finish it with a shot and a faked death to scare the girls. They watched this with total disgust for the fact that we were arguing and never believed the faked gunshot wound for a second. Massive disappointment!!

I remember getting my driving license on my 16th birthday and excitedly going to Mike Morgan's house to show off. I knocked down the fence next to the Morgan's driveway on the way in. Mike's dad barely reacted to the news and never told my folks. Nice man! He also let me drive their car on a trip to see Mike while he was on a combining tour (owned his own combine and worked for college funds harvesting wheat). I have some amazing friends.

I attended Grant Junior High School from 7th grade on and then Littleton High until right before our senior year. I was to be the art editor of the yearbook that last year. I was so sad to move and for every reunion, pretty much, I have returned to be with my friends. Thanks for always including me.
Spouse Name: Tom , manufacturers rep, Farmer HS Enid HS, Oklahoma, 1955
What been doing – My artwork keeps me busy doing home portraits and exhibiting in several galleries. We own 16 acres and having a full fruit orchard and a cut-your-own  Christmas tree farm is lots of work, I see my 92 year old mother each day at local nursing home. I enjoy being with children and grandchildren as often as possible.
In high school I loved the dances.  Once at a dance my partner,  Brent Bailey, and I were doing the polka so fast we fell on the floor laughing. The team spirit when we won the football and basket ball state championships and going to the drive in restaurant to celebrate.

Flying Yankee Restoration Group, Inc. (Last stainless steel Zephyr that will ever run the rails again)
Been up to:  After leaving Vail I returned to the East Coast. Worked for Otis Elevator for a while,  Mariner Yacht, Timberland Shoe, and now Flying Yankee Restoration. Primarily all involved coordinating, sales, and promotions. Also raised and showed Siamese cats for a short time. Now also involved in producing hand "etched" glass ware.
What you remember:   My mother writing an "absence" note to Mr. Monger stating she had heard of "fish mongers", etc. but never a Mr. Monger. Please excuse Patsy from class. The other "funny" was that as I was going between classes one day, I was singing an old "sea shanty" under my breath ("Roll Me Over in the Clover") and Mr. Monger heard me and sent me home. My mother and father had fun explaining that It is actually quite an old tune on the east coast from the whaling days. I think that was the same year we TP'd the principal’s house. He wasn't too happy. Lee Erb may remember that one. That and the innocent meetings we used to have out at the Hi-Line Canal. That was at a time when we traveled in groups.

After high school and college I did some photography modeling only until I got my career going. My career was always in the computer business. I started out teach word processing before PC's. Later I went into computer sales. Wound up landing two national accounts. The Automobile Club and Arco Petroleum were my focus as they were all over the country. My two children are Kimberly and Todd. Todd lives in Vancouver and has his degree in stage design. He also has a new house in Palm Springs where we spent Christmas. Kim and her family live in Norco, which is pretty close to me. My daughter Kim has three children, and Todd doesn't have kids.

I spent August 2010 to October, 2011 in Baghdad as a Dept of Defense contractor, working as Iraqi Police Services Senior Coordinator, utilizing my previous experience as a Navy Intelligence officer (reserve) and senior police executive with 30 years in law enforcement, to show the Iraqis how to plan and manage their capabilities. Now the State Dept wants me back to continue the effort.

She changed her first name years ago. She lives in New York and is probably the only person I've had any contact with since high school

Spouse Ed Moses (deceased) Occupation Business Management Spouse High School & Year Winner High School Winner, SD, 1956
Children Kristi (46), Michael (30), Jamie (28), grandson, Evan (16)
What's Up?  I received my B.A. and M.A. from the University of Denver and did post-graduate work at the University of Nevada/Reno (where I lived for ten years). My professional career as an educator lasted thirty-eight years. I taught kindergarten, special education, juvenile delinquents, community college, and reading and writing intervention at the elementary level.
During the last ten years of my career, my role changed to reading specialist and finally a district level literacy coach. As a coach, I wrote and presented training curriculum for elementary teachers throughout Pasco County School District (Florida). My career was rewarding and fulfilling and seemed to go by too quickly. I retired in June of 2010.
Retirement has been terrific. I have traveled extensively, work for a tutoring company two days a week and volunteer at an elementary school. My "playtime" includes beautiful days at the beach, boating to the islands, swimming laps at the pool, jogging at the track, horseback riding through the forest, and sunning by the pond in my backyard reading a book.
Life is good! Florida is a great place to live and a great place to be retired.  I have lived here for 25 years and still love it. My first husband, Gil, and I were married for ten years and had a daughter, Kristi. My husband, Ed, and I were married for twenty years before he passed away from cancer.
We had two children, Michael and Jamie. I also have a wonderful grandson, Evan, who will be accompanying me to the reunion.
Memories:   Mr. Taylor, my history and psychology teacher. He suggested I think about becoming a teacher. His encouragement and high expectations will always be remembered. I enjoyed our "sock hops." I loved to dance then and still do. I remember my dear friends Sue and Kathy, whom I haven't seen since shortly after high school (class of '61)  Art with Mr. Dean was always my favorite class.

Children - Carl 40 and Scott 42
What we have been up to? I graduated from CSU with a BS degree in Psychology and my teaching certification through CU. In 2010 I retired after 33 years of teaching kindergarten and first grade. I have had two novels published.
"Around the Square" and "Butterfly Messages". They have a little bit of humor, mystery and romance and many characters and events that are based on fond memories of old Littleton. I am involved in different community volunteer efforts but most of all we love spending time with our sons and their children and their llamas and alpacas. We like to travel and recently visited Thailand and Vietnam.
Memories - I remember fun friends and good teachers whom I didn't fully appreciate at the time, who provided me with a good education. I loved the athletic events, games and state championships, the Lionettes,  and hours of practice, and the production  “Around the World in 80 Days”. I remember it as a good time and place to grow up.

Some Extended Text from others

Terry Rathbun Rose (Cameron deceased 1977)
Occupation - Principal/Teacher English, Latin now Retired.
Employer - St. Andrew School
Spouse Philip Rose
Spouse Occupation = College Professor, Math/Computer Sci.
Spouse High School Battle Creek High School, 1959
Children Gail, 43; Brian, 41; Gwynne, 36; John 34

Now known as Terry Lynn (Cameron) Rose (Rathbun ( 1st. husband died in head on collision in 1977; remarried Mr. Rose, a college professor,1981, who stalwartly helped her to raise four young children) and she is currently living west of Helena, Montana, at the foot of the Continental Divide. Tough and feisty, she battles knap weed, severe winters, and gophers. Her temperament reflects the severe seasons, so she is best avoided. She reads voraciously and writes poems and books of interest to no one. Much too late to have physical stamina, and a lover of comfort and hater of exercise in any form, she has taken strangely to bicycling selectively around Montana and North Idaho (no extended up- hill climbs greater than 4% thank you) She explores the mountains in an old red jeep held together with bailing wire and duck tape and is a bit of a loner. Vita: Co-founder of an independent Catholic school now 200 hundred strong (standrewschool.org); semi retired, currently teaches Latin and English as needed (which is too often because no one knows Latin anymore--someone has to preserve this wayward civilization, right?). Highly unlikely to appear at a class reunion unless it were held in rural Montana where life makes sense.
What's Up?  Outsmarting gophers, cycling during brief Monatana
summers, working on three books, vanquishing old age as best I can.
Memories:  Little inside the school walls Explored ghost towns in dad's red jeep, visited Latin American countries where dad worked; a certain carefree recklessness as the Viet Nam war swelled and swallowed our generation.

Occupation = Career Consultant to Executives Employer = CareerLab Spouse Beverly
Children Brandon - Age 43 Kenny - Nashville -Age 42
What's Up? My father and grandfather were both physicians, and my mother was a nurse, so I assumed I’d be a doctor too. I entered pre-med, but soon realized I was not a scientist. I was a healer, though,
and turned my talents to career development.
In 1978, I started a company called CareerLab, and we’ve been hired by 350 corporations to provide career advice. Most of our clients are business leaders who’ve been laid off. We help them focus, market
themselves, and get rehired in nearly-ideal jobs. Being self employed, I can work by phone from anywhere, and have no plans to retire. Instead, I am slowing down bit by bit. I am a strong believer in life balance, so devote a lot of time to family and friends. My father is 95, and I spend one day per week with him. We love to visit Nashville and Seattle to see our two adult boys and two grandchildren. Although we’ve traveled and cruised some, travel isn’t a goal. We are homebodies at heart, and enjoy gardening and tinkering around the house. Although my work has taken me to most major U.S. cities, we love Colorado, and live only 12.8 miles from Littleton High School.
Memories: Littleton was my third high school. I began at South, and then transferred to George Washington when it opened six blocks from my house. My parents moved to Littleton in my senior year, so I graduated
there. Besides the classes themselves, being a diver on the swimming team gave me friends, a feeling of belonging, and a sense of accomplishment

Spouse Dick Stowers – Owner Prestige Medical
HS time Massaonutten Military Academy 1962
Pam recently 1 year ago retired from teaching 4th grade for 30 years. I enjoy the free time, but do some substituting for my teacher friends. I enjoy the great outdoors with walking and keeping my yard beautiful. We also have enjoyed traveling more. The best way to spend time, however, is with my wonderful grandchildren.
I remember a fun experience in high school. Running around with the group, building floats, camping out overnight on someone’s front yard. Mrs Binklemen’s English class and reciting poetry.

Been up to My B. A in History CU-Boulder and M.A. in Guidance Counseling DU paved the road to my current retirement living in Denver. The rather mundane but comfortable situation follows 34 years of secondary school settings quite literally around the world and in high school counseling positions for over 30 of those years. Peace Corps in Jamaica was my initial international foray over 30 years ago and was when I discovered the overseas American schools. I did college counseling in American Schools in Brazil, (Sao Paulo), Ecuador (Quito), Kuwait, Philippines ( Manila) Syria (Damascus) Egypt (Cairo) and Taiwan (Kaohsiung) for 20 years and have been back to Taiwan 3 times as the substitute counselor at my old school since retirement. Life has been and remains Excellent.
What I remember of HS is Mrs. Benkleman left big grammar prints in my brain. I think of her when I am cringing hearing people saying “just between you and I” and my thumb involuntarily goes into action when pondering “who and whom” usage. Her phrase of “fewer cars, less traffic” plays in my brain as the constant misuse of “less” appears over and over.
