I have only missed one reunion.  This surely will be a fantastic one!  The East High Class of 1962 has always been a special class.  Can't wait to see all of you!

Guess the first reuion, 50 years, WOW most of us are 68, and knowing that class of 62 looks like 51, rigth?  I didn't enjoy high school and didn't do well but in like did better then average because of a great wife, 4 kids and 8 grands. go GOP.  Hope to see someone that remembers me, I will be the 5'10 51 old guy in the corner of the room.

Australia where I live is a bit too far away to get back for the 50th but I appreciate having been contacted, reading the postings by others, and thanks to the Backmans for getting this up and running.

Looking forward to seeing you all at the reunion.  Alma & I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary in 2011.  We have two children & their spouces. They have given us 10 grand children & eleven great grands. We enjoy our two homes..one in So. Ogden & one in Ivins, Utah.  We have great fiends we do many activities with.  We enjoy the things southern Utah offers while we are there & the northern Utah activitities.  Seems like life is on high speed, but we do try to high on & enjoy the ride ...

 After High School, I joined the Air National Guard for 6 years less 2 years on a mission in Australia.  Met the love of my life, Karen.  Married in 1968 and moved to Mission Viejo, CA, in 1970 to sell clinical laboratory instruments and have been doing it ever since all over the US and Canada.  Got an MBA degree.  We have raised 4 children who all graduated from BYU with Master Degrees and have blessed us with 18 grandchildren.  We have lived in Highland, UT, for almost 6 years.  We have been houseboating at Lake Powell every year for 30 years, fishing at Flaming Gorge for the same, and riding ATVs in American Fork Canyon for the last 5 year.  Will retire soon and serve a mission somewhere.  Best Wishes to all in the Class of 62!

Wow, it's hard to believe that I have managed to stuff this much life into only 50 years.  But, like all good cheese and wines, we only get better with age.
Many years of traveling all over have finally deposited me into the Dallas/Ft Worth area where I am happily still working in hopes of being abel to retire some day. (not really)
If I am able to make this reunion (which I hope to do) it will by my first.  
Looking forward to it.

Mary Jane Martin Lundgren and I are looking forward to the reunion.  Retired life is good.  We just returned from a one year mission at the temple in Stockholm Sweden.  It was great to be on a mission and great to return to the land of my birth.

Thanks for all the work that's being done to keep us together after all these many years.  I'm hoping to be able to take that journey to my "motherland" for the big 50!

Thank you for keeping us together.  I'm not sure how long I will continue to teach - 1, 2, 3 years.  Maybe just 1.  It is nice to know I have a choice.  A few years ago i was asked to begin an AP Biology program at Hunter High.  This last school year was the third year of operation.  We had more students take the test this year than any year I have taught. I am ready to hand it over to the next generation.  
Coaching track and field is still a part of my life.  I'm not the head coach, i leave that to the young and energentic.  This year, however, we had 2 State Champions and 1 All American.  It's hard to leave with such success.

Good job all you that are trying to keep us East High Alums connected!!  I won't make it to the reunion, but am happy to report I am well and still nearly in my right mind!  Also, I want to apologize to anyone I may have slighted in High School.  And forgive those that slighted me in any way.  Keep on truckin'  "Rosie"

Jim, Rick and others, Thank You for all the work you have done and are  doing.  This time I hope to be in the  U.S.  My FBI career had us living at U.S. Embassies, 6 years in Bonn, Germany,  4 years in Berlin, Germany, and 3 years in Israel. It would have been difficult to make the last 3
Look forward to seeing everyone!!

We hope this will be the best reunion ever. We also hope to prepare a CD with an update of what you have been doing or are doing with your retirement. Working on this web site is a new experience for me. Keep checking back.

After graduating from East, I received a management degree from the University of Utah. After graduating from college, went to Work with Kmart Corporation, I worked for them for 33 years and retired, which I still am. We raised 4 boys and then we were blessed with our daughter, 5 children, 23 grandchildren, ages 1 to 19 currently, 18 live within 1 mile from us in Las Vegas, Nv. For Kmart, I was a store manager, District Manager, Regional Manager, and Director of Merchandise, covering  191 Stores. I met my wife in Seattle Wash, and she likes the rain, and dreds the heat in Vegas each summer, but we have a great time wilth our kids, golfing, tennis, for us, baseball soccer, volleyball, for the grandkids. I have always liked riding horses, currently I work at a Ranch that boards 25 horses and help take care of them, so I get to still ride a lot. Our children are all very successful, served missions, including our one son-law. Would enjoy e-mails from anyone, thanks Bruce.

   We had a wonderful reunion reception and dinner last evening. There were 270 in attendance. Dick Miller and Lynne Nielsen provided a fun and lively program that we enjoyed very much. Those of you who were not able to be with us as well as those who were there, please watch for the order form you will receive from a commercial company who took videos of interviews with many classmates during the evening and chronicled the reunion evening for us. Please continue to watch our website as additional classmates add their profiles over the coming months. Also encourage classmates who have not yet participated to open our website, enjoy the content, and enter their own profile under the Classmates link.We were all shocked to learn that our classmate Richard Lee died yesterday morning following heart surgery the day before. It was sobering to have that announcement shared with everyone at the dinner and program. We will post his obituary as soon as it is available.Best wishes,Jim Backman
