*** We are told that Art passed away on Sunday, July 18, 2010. We are saddened and send our prayers to his family and his beloved partner, Connie. ***

Art has been a widower (Connie pictured above at the 35th Reunion) for about 15 years. He has two adult children, a daughter and a son. “Semi” retired from the real estate industry, Art continues to buy, renovate, and sell homes. Like so many of our classmates, Art has health issues that kept him from our 45th-year class reunion last year. However, it did not keep him from making a generous donation for the cause, for which we thank him! Art is looking forward to our big 50th. Fortunately, because of the reunion luncheons scheduled about every other month (see schedule on website – Newsletter), he won’t have to wait until 2012! Art’s contact information is:

Margie has discovered that she is busier now that she is retired from her occupation as a pediatric nurse!  She and her husband, Arthur (pictured above at the 45th Reunion), are published songwriters.  Their CD, “Tales of the New West” by Buddy Jewel is in stores now.   Their song, “Spirit of Nowhere,” was recently aired as background on an episode of Nickelodeon.

The couple has three daughters: Debby, 45; Brendy, 42; and Christy, 41.  Granddaughters are Ryane Nicole, 21; Kelly, 17; and Mackenzie and Mariah, both 12.  Margie lists enjoying her friends, football games, school musicals, and trips to the beach in her first car as highlights of her high school years.

The Coreys have a beautiful backyard garden complete with a water fountain which they enjoy while leisurely sipping coffee in the morning.

Margie can be contacted by posting a message on the Home Page of this site.

Suzanne and husband David (pictured above from the 50th Reunion) have lived in the Walnut area most of their married life and moved to Murrieta in 1997 when they retired.   Suzanne worked various jobs over the years and retired from Foster Farms.   David was a Postmaster.

They are happily living in a 55+ Golf Community which they really enjoy.   The lifestyle fits well with Suzanne’s passion for golf, her other hobby besides watching her grandchildren, of which there are three:  Jeffrey, 23; Kyle, 16, and Kristin, 12.  Before the grandchildren, of course, were the children, Jeff, 42, and Julie, 39.

Suzanne and David will have been married for 44 years in September! Congratulations!

art serrano tom hughes

Of all the exciting things Tom has done in the almost 46 years since graduation, he says the single most exciting event for him was having a child.  I think wife (Dr.) Show-Ming Lu (pictured above at the 45th Reunion) may have had something to do with it!  He boasts daughter Alison (34) and two grand-dogs!

Tom retired in 2002 from his position of aerospace manager and engineer from The Boeing Company.  However,  most of his career was at Rockwell International.

Hard work and hard play were the highlights of the last 45 years!  As an engineer and manager, he was involved in several space projects, mainly the Space Shuttle.  He managed all the thermal analysis and thermodynamics engineers at Rockwell Int’l Space Division and was involved in many projects, including mission operations and support for the first 100 Shuttle missions!  So much for the hard work!

Hard play includes about 90 rounds of golf per year; 100 miles of skiing per year; running 12 marathons; traveling about 130 days per year; dancing with his wife; fishing, hiking, backpacking, rafting the Grand Canyon four times, and running golf leagues and a few tournaments!

In his high school days, Tom played some basketball, joined a bunch of clubs to get them on his college applications, studied a lot, and regrets that he didn’t dance more!

Tom’s contact information is

4651 Los Patos Avenue
Huntington Beach, CA  92649

Hal has had a very busy life! After college he went through medical school, internship and residency before serving seven years in the Army Medical Corps. Currently he is only “semi-retired” as a radiologist. He says he enjoys the “retirement” more than the “semi,” but he’s too young to quit altogether! Hal and his wife Clela have two sons and four grandchildren (pictured above). Hobbies include golf, photography, music, and computers. Hal can be reached via email at hwadley@mac.com
