our three sons...now ages 17, 15 and 13. College
applications are a hot topic around our house! How can
this be? It seems like only a few years ago we were

made it possible to have a living, real and eternal
relationship with Him. God Bless~ Blake

I graduated with BSEE from Santa Clara in 1984. I
then worked for Westinghouse in Sunnyvale, as an
Engineer till 1992. I worked with inner-city kids,
in my free time for Bayshore Christian Ministries,
and owned a home, in E Palo Alto. It was a very
rewarding experience, seeing some kids choose a
better way besides, gangs, violence and drugs.
I then moved to Tri-Cities and Yakima, WA and worked
in a variety of engineering and supervisorial duties,
at the Hanford DOE Facility, for Westinghouse Hanford
Co. I also got a MBA from City University.

I am looking forward to the 30 year reunion on July 24

In 1980 I went to SDSU. I worked in the tour
industry while in college, and eventually got a BA in
Graphic Art. Found that the stress level was way too
high for me, so I stayed in the tour business. I
travel quite a bit, showing tourists all those places
you've always wanted to go to but don't have the time
or money. The farthest I have traveled giving tours
is to Australia, New Zealand and Fiji. Mainly I do
tours around the southwest U.S., the Canadian Rockies
On my own vacations (not very often), I tend to
travel down to Baja to go 4-wheelin' and just relax by
sipping margaritas out on the Sea of Cortez.

I have worked for the past 10 years with Deloitte &
Touche as a CPA actively involved in the financial
side of merger and acquisition transactions with
technology companies in the Silicon Valley. In early
2000, I took a 6 month sabattical to spend more time
with family and friends which was wonderful. I
returned to Deloitte in a new role as Program Director
for our Technology & Communications Group - this role
is more on the HR side. This has given me some
tremendous insight into how we run our business!
I married Mohana Dissanayake in 2000 - Mohana is also
a CPA with Deloitte & Touche (two accountants in the
family!). Mohana is a native of Sri Lanka so we had a
traditional wedding at a resort in Sri Lanka (with me
in a sari!) and we held a second wedding at the
Chaminade Santa Cruz for our local friends and family.
We are living in Mountain View.
Mohana and I enjoy traveling to Sri Lanka once a year;
each trip we stop in a new city along the way
(Singapore, Kuala Lumpar, etc). This year we plan to
spend time in Dubai.
Nice to see so many of you at the Reunion...my have we
October 2008: Still living in Mountain View a block
away from Huff Elementary School. Have 3 children:
Ryan is 5 and boy/girl twins Kasey and Audrey are 18
months old. Yep, so many of you have children that
will soon be graduating from high school as opposed to
me just starting out. Ah well. I am now a full time
mom and Mohana is a partner with Deloitte in San Jose.
I am living in San Jose and am now back in High Tech
working as a salesguy for a security software company
called Cenzic. Unfortunatly the marriage thing did not
work out and am now a single padre. Overall life is
good and have two beautiful daughters ages 11 and 8.
Hey all, it was nice to read what you're all up to.
I've been living in Mountain View and Sunnyvale since
graduating from California College of Arts with a BFA
in graphic design. Since then I've been doing design
and art directing at design agencies, Sun Microsystems,
a magazine and now self-employed in my home office for
the last 10 years. Happily married for 20 years (!),
Rob and I have 2 kids and spend most of our free time
with family and friends. Adam is 16 and Zoe is 9. The
two are amazing athletes, musicians and artists, and
lots of fun to be around! Of all my activities from my
younger days, I still love the martial arts and it's
the one I've kept up as a lifestyle--and I get to bond
with my kids who kick-it with me. :)
I read everyone's entry. It was great to read what everyone has been
up to in the last 19 years. I'm still working in the dental field. Out of
highschool I worked in an office for 9 years, and now I'm working in
Palo Alto on Middlefield for Dr. Lent and Dr. Whetstone. I enjoy my
job very much. I work with alot of great people. I'm still very active in
sports for fun. I enjoy going out hiking, rollerblading, tennis, running
and biking. I also spend alot of time up in Grass Valley, because
that's where my family has lived for 9 years. I can't wait to see
everyone at our 20th.
I am updating my profile. I am now married and have two step
children that are both married. I have 3 grandchildren. My family still
lives in Grass Valley. I am still working in the Dental field at the same
office. I have been there 25 years.
Received my degree in applied physics a goodly number
of years ago. I worked for Raychem Corp for 8 years as
a staff scientist. Presently I have been working in
silicon valley start ups as either an optical
engineer/manager or general technologist. I'm moving on
to starting my own venture in alternative energy.
Life has been really good overall for me. As with all
of us there have been some challenges along the way,
but I'm happy to say that at this stage, I had many
more blessings, then problems.
After college, I joined my family in a successful real
estate career and ultimately moved to our dream home
in Santa Cruz in 2006.
Those of you who remember me, know I was always into
nature, and so I'm thankful to live here in the Soquel
Mountains on 5 wooded acres with my three kids. (In
fact my whole family moved to Santa Cruz County after
I did so now we have close and friends and family
around us all the time. )
I am happily single, divorced 7 years now, and working
part time in landscape design and taking care of my

Rules! Wow, was it fun seeing everyone at the reunion
over the weekend. For those of you who missed out,
we'd love to see you next time. I agree with Randy
Alley - everyone looked great, and the place
was awash in smiling faces. I think the reunion really
jazzed everyone up and I heard talk about getting
together more often. An annual beach party or night at
Rosotti's perhaps? We all owe Linda Reinhardt a great
big thank you for taking the initiative to put the
reunion together so, Thanks Linda! I look forward to
seeing folks at the 25 year, if not before.

Overall things are great. Hope they are for you too.
Hard to believe it's been nearly 20 years. I

Currently self-employed as a CPA/Financial Planner.
Married in 1987 to a wonderful person that I met
attending a wedding with Kay Lovlien in 1982. Living
in Arizona (since 1988) to be closer to family and
pay a reasonable amount for a house (yes, I'm an
accounting nerd through and through).
It was great to see everyone at the 20th reunion. I
agree with Randy, our class is in great shape and very
well preserved. I didn't see nearly as many bald or
gray heads or beer guts as my older friends said I
would. It was fun to talk to everyone, renew old
friendships and find out what everyone is up to.
I still have my sense of humor, rarely get out of
control and appreciate this wonderful life that God has
given all of us.
Looking forward to our next gathering for our 25th(?).
I hope some people show up that I saw at our 10th (like
Steve, Diana and Mark), but not the 20th. For the rest
of you who think you don't need to attend cause you
already keep in contact with the people you like--no
one's memory is that good and besides some of us who
used to be considered boring or obnoxious aren't

Hi everyone! I graduated from UC Davis in 1985. I'm
an engineer with the State and am living in
Sacramento. Sounds pretty boring. Actually, I'm
having a great time! Would love to hear from you.
I am, after 25 years, still working for 'the phone
company'! It's been Pacific Bell, SBC and now the new
AT&T! I've had many jobs over the years and currently I
lead a 13-State System Test team and we have 3 major
software releases a year. After much searching...I
finally found the love of my life in 1996 (there he was
sitting in the cubicle across from me) and we married
in 1999! No kids, but we have a small zoo with 2
parrots, a cat and a dog.
UPDATE: In May 2007 AT&T outsourced my entire
organization to Amdocs, who promoted me to manager of
the team I was working on. Had a good ride, but was
laid off in July this year. For me, this is a good
thing because I hated working for Amdocs. Currently
I’m in work-a-holic recovery and taking it easy until
my severance runs out…then, time for a new job!
Just found out about this site. Always interesting to see

I missed all the others
Just stumbled across this website the other day and
thought I'd pop on and say "hello" to everyone.
Let's see, where do I start? Graduated from Cal Poly,
SLO in 1985 with a BS in Biological Sciences, almost
went to vet school but changed my mind after working
for a vet for three years...too heartbreaking! Went
back to silicon valley and caught the leading edge of
the technology revolution and rode it all the way to
the top...and all the way to the bottom...over the
next 15 years. Ended my career as VP of Marketing for
Chemdex, one of the dot com companies that went
public and did well for a while and then cratered.
Great fun while it lasted.
Semi retired in 2000, MOSTLY voluntary! Spent most of
my time with the horses at the ranch in Mariposa
(near Yosemite) in CA. Husband Bill (married 18
years) transfered from Mountain View MSFT to Redmond
MSFT in 2002. Bought a beautiful 60 acre horse ranch
nestled at the base of the Olympic National Park
where my nearest neighbor is 25 acres away and I have
a "to die" for view of the Olympics out my back
windows. Sequim is in the rainshadow so we only get
20 inches of rain a year...it's a magnificent place.
Still horse obsessed, didn't grow out of it! Have
been a serious competitor on the "A" circuit
hunter/jumper scene for 15 years now and still as
crazy about it as I've always been. I own 9 horses,
have three pregnant mares and am buying 1 or 2 more
this year. What can I say, it's an addiction!
Now I'm a real estate broker, private investor and
run a small horse boarding business. So I guess I'm
still retired but it sure doesn't feel like it!
Hope all is well with everyone and look forward to
seeing everyone at the next reunion.
It was great to see everyone at the reunion last year.
High school seems so long ago, especially when my
oldest son is getting college applications and
scholarship info. I graduated from BYU in December
1983 (I went non-stop) and married my husband, James,
also in 1983. We have 4 children; Daniel 17, Gregory
14, Kristen 10, and Tyler 6. My life is full of cross-
country meets, triathlons, soccer, and piano lessons.
Wouldn't have it any other way.

Hi everyone. Wow it's been a long time since we walked
the halls of old Awalt high school. It was great to
read what has been going on with everyone since 1980.
Anyway here is a brief update on what has transpired
in my life since then.
Went to Foothill for two years and then transfered to
Sonoma State University and graduated in '84. I then
moved to Southern California and tried a couple of
different occupations befoe deciding to go back to
school and get a teaching credential. In '86 I started
teaching P.E. at a public high school and have been
there ever since. It is a pretty good gig, I get to go
to work in shorts and a t-shirt. I have been happily
married since '85 and we have 2 children, Danny is 20
and is a U.S. Marine having served in Iraq and will
deploy to Afghanistan in January of 09'.
Katie is 15 now a freshmen and a member of the high
school marching band and orchestra. I am still an avid
SF Giants fan (which is not easy living in So
Cal) and catch almost everygame on satellite.
It was great to read about everyone. Take care.
