July 30, 1944 Brigham City UT retired Married 3
 
          I attended East High School for two years before moving to the San Francisco Bay area in 1961where I graduated from Campbell High School. I enjoyed participating in Air Force ROTC and LDS institute of religion while attending San Jose State College and midway two semesters at BYU, Provo, before graduating in 1970 with a B.S. degree in Industrial Administration. My first important job was with IBM Manufacturing in San Jose. By 1969 I developed an interest in aviation and earned my private pilot’s license, which allowed me to fly throughout California and Utah. 
          In 1977 I married and lived in Fremont, California, where Debbie and I were blessed with a son and 2 daughters. But alas the marriage ended in divorce in 1996 and I ended up as a single dad but continued on helping raise my daughters.
          Following a downturn in electronics manufacturing I went to work as a civil servant for the U.S. Army designing, building and starting up operations for a very large distribution center in Lathrop, California. Then, in 1991, I transferred to Utah to work with the Defense Logistics Agency as a systems analyst. In 2002, I met and married Paula Steinicke. I continued my work with the Defense Logistics Agency until my retirement in 2009. My wife Paula and I live in Brigham City and have since 2006.

Ray and I returned to Utah after living 20 years in Mission Viejo, CA. It is exciting to be back even though I still don't like driving in the snow!!! I am working full-time at Savas Greene & Company, LLC, a CPA firm in the Old Mill area of Salt Lake. Please let me know if I can be of any help with our reunion next year. 

Is a golf tourney being planned? I'd be happy to help with that.

Denny Steele
October 26, 1943 Laguna Hills, CA Retired Married 3
Thanks to Jim Backman and the reunion committee for their perseverance to rescue me from the student missing list. Their search was probably complicated by a name change just after high school. I changed "Densley" to the much preferred "Denny" and have spent the last fifty years known as Denny Steele.

Reviewing the reunion material particularly the "bio's" brings back many lost memories. I'm very impressed that so many classmates have enjoyed fruitful, happy and interesting life's. And, of course, I'm sadden to see some classmates have passed on and won't be able to join our reunion.

My life after high school can be summed up in just a few sentences. I received a great education from East High and the University of Utah. Married early and raised three wonderful children and this year celebrated my forty-eight wedding anniversary. Work was always a means to an end. We decided early on to follow "the money" so to speak. The trail led to many cities, working for solid corporations in very rewarding positions. The end of trail is a beautiful retirement home in sunny Southern California. Life is good!!!

My wife, Phyllis, and I plan to attend my reunion. I look forward to seeing you and renewing our friendship.

November 02, 1943 Bountiful UT Homemaker Married 3
Looking forward to the reunion!  After graduating from East I attended the "U" and graduated in 1966 with a BS degree in Home Economics Education. I married Grant Davis who graduated from East in 1958.   I have used my education in caring for my family and in many church and community responsibilities.  We have been blessed with a son and two daughters who have given us 13 grandchildren.  When my husband retired from his real estate business in 2007, we served a 23 month mission in the England Manchester Mission.  It was a great experience and we grew to love the people there.  We are now doing a service mission with the Young Men General Presidency.  Life has been good and I have great memories of my time at East High.

LaNeal Anderson (Livingston)
January 16, 1944 Knoxville TN Retired Clinical Social Worker Married 4
 What an awesome class.  Wow! How humbling to be counted among so many accomplished folks.  This will be the first reunion I have attended due to the fact I have mostly lived away these years since graduation.  I could probably sum up my life by saying I have experienced some tremendous highs  (joys) and some  unbelievable  lows (sadness) but all in all life has been very good to me.  I was fortunate to married a good man. (Gordon Livingston). The highs have been higher the lows bearable because we have journeyed on the path of life together.  He is by far my greatest blessing.  The highlight of my life include:  graduated from BYU – married, bore 4 sons, 3 living, Mason, our 2nd son died in 1995 while serving a mission in Puerto Rico.  6 grand children; graduated from U. Of Cincinnati with Masters degree in Social Work;  worked for Catholic Social Services for several years and then had a private practice counseling individuals and marriage and families.   Except for my family, this career has given me the greatest satisfaction and truly blessed my life as I have served others over the years.

Gordon and I have lived in Seattle, where he finished his PhD in genetics and, the Netherlands where he had a post doctorate; home to Salt Lake City, where he was employed at the U. of U in Occupational & Environmental Health then off to Cincinnati, Ohio where we raised our family and made many dear friends and now in Knoxville, Tn. where he is director of a laboratory involved in Radiation Emergency Medicine.

Though I retired five years ago when we left Ohio, my life has never been busier.  I have had many opportunities to serve in the church as well as in the community.  A year ago I had (Deep Brain Stimulation ) DBS surgery, to control the symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease, which I have had since 1990. Making the necessary adjustments to function optimally has been a challenge but what a great blessing;  It has calmed my tremors and reduced my need  for medications that were causing more problems than the symptoms. The brain is a marvelous instrument.   I have gone from a flat affect to mania with the switch of the settings on my monitor.  Very interesting.   My to do list includes:  1) Writing my life history.  2.  Learn to play the piano. 3. Exercise more to keep my Parkinson’s symptoms under control.

Activities I’ve enjoyed include: counseling, gardening, canning, home improvement projects, entertaining, cooking, reading.

Thanks to the committee for their wonderful efforts in organizing this reunion.

December 28, 1943 Provo UT Homemaker Married 4

After graduating from East I attended the University of Utah for three years, majoring in recreational therapy.  In 1964 I met Gil Bertelson and we were married that same year.  Soon after graduating from the U, Gil applied and was accepted for Air Force pilot training school. This was the start of a life I'd never dreamed would be ours.  We started out in Laredo, Texas and lived there for four years.  From there we just kept moving every three or so years living in five different states and one tour in Lakenheath, England. We learned to love each assignment but, perhaps the best time was our four years in Oahu, Hawaii.  All total, we have moved about 22 times, but have finally settled in a wonderful area in Provo, Utah and have been in the same home for 13 whole years.  The longest place we've ever lived.

Gil's last assignment was commander of the ROTC program at BYU.  We learned to love Utah County, so we retired from the A.F. and Gil was able to work for BYU's business school  for another 15 years.  His position gave us the opportunity to travel all over Europe and South America and associate with amazing people. We have found this a wonderful place to retire and raise our family.

During all of these years we were blessed with four wonderful daughters.  My life has been filled with all a stay-at-home wife and mother could encounter.  As much as Gil was flying to parts unknown, I often felt like a single mom, becoming quite independent and creative keeping our home running smoothly. Between family, church service and the Air Force my life has been richly blessed.

My main interests are centered around family, friends, home and church assignments.  I still love to sing and blend my voice with others.  I enjoy home decorating, gardening, reading, traveling to new places and spending time with our daughters and our ten amazing grand children and I love being a "hands on" grandma.  My hobbies include sewing, quilt making, baking all kinds of goodies and trying new recipes.

As empty nesters we are looking to new horizons.  Hopefully, health will allow us to serve a Church mission or two, catch a few more exotic cruises and continue to make new friends.

Thanks to the reunion committee for all their hard work.  Looking forward to seeing everyone!
