From: Chris Cartano of Granite Bay, CA -

Comments: Chico State, Married 11+ years, 2 kids--Calvin 5 Corie 7. I have been with Hewlett-Packard for 14 years, where I currently do a good job at shuffling papers. 

In the warmer weather, I like to ride my bicycle to work or ride my motorcycle (650 Honda Nighthawk) when I wimp out. 

This year my wife, who I met at Chico St, is entering many Dressage horse shows, so I am busy supporting her interest in horses. We currently have 2 horses. 

When I am not shoveling manure, taking care of the yard, or the kids, I like woodworking as a hobby.

From: Robert Coupe of Elk Grove, CA -

Comments: Life has been great since graduation. After 1 year at DVC, I attended Oregon State University, where I graduated in 1984 with a BS in Construction Engineering Management. 

When I left high school, I thought I wanted to build houses for a living. During the summers while in college, I worked on freeway construction projects. I had found a new frontier. I've been building freeways ever since. Currently, I'm back in our old stomping grounds building the 680/24 interchange. I've been on this project since 1994. 

In 1991, wedding bells were ringing. I married my best friend, Melanie. We have two children, Tara and Tyler, they're twins, 3-1/2 years old. We live in Elk Grove for now. We're building our dream home in Wilton, on 7-1/2 acres and hope to be living there before the end of the year.Looking forward to seeing everyone in October. 

PS. Has anyone heard from Paula?

From: Chuck Douros (Douros) of Lodi California -

Comments: OK, I've been married since before the 5 year reunion to the same cool chick(70's) babe (80's) hottie (90's), mother of my children and center of my world. Nicole and I have been blessed me with three terrific children; Zack 12, twins Nicholas and Alexa 22 months. 

Since that warm June day in '79 when I shook Smilin' Jim's hand and accepted that diploma, we have lived in Concord and Pittsburg California, West Linn and Aloha Oregon, Walla Walla Washington (UGH!), Burnsville Minnesota and now Lodi California. Somewhere in there I attended San Francisco State, got married, stayed married, had kids and got to keep them, Also somewhere in there I managed to lose touch with absolutely every one of you. 

Dave, glad to see you finally got married. I told you it only hurts for a second- John, was it something I said? Where'd ya go after Monterey? And Shawn, you need to come down and get some sun! 

I think someone needs to get a hold of John Hankerson and drag his butt down here for the reunion! I think he's in Seattle. Shawn? 

See ya all for some 'ice blockin' on the 9th hole at Roundhill.

Comments: Since graduating from SRVHS, I attended Arizona State University and got my degree in broadcasting. Migrated to the Nation's capital and haven't gotten smart enough to leave. Don't have kids or cats or been married yet. Been working in public affairs for most of the past twenty years, enjoying a lot of travelling and lot of once in a lifetime experiences. Currently, I am a public affairs consultant to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which takes up quite a bit of my time, at the moment.

My travels have kept me in touch with Gretchen Judd Morales and I recently became reacquainted with Stacy (TASHA) Boley.I hope that I get to see the other folks that were in dance with us or in Student Council, Oklahoma, Dance or Drama. And more than anything else, I hope I get to meet new friends, that I might not have known during my year at SRVHS.

Comments: After 19 years on the road to nowhere, I have finally arrived, nowhere. I've survived several bouts with the bottle( and more than a few policemen ) only to now depend on prescription medications. The doctors say I show obsessive- compulsive, bi-polar, manic tendencies, and sometimes I stay up for days laughing, crying, and wet sanding the fenders on my '57 Willys pick up I bought in 1977; trying to figure out if the doctors are right. I now live in the central valley, ( the last actual house I remember was in Ceres...)where I do odd jobs in the construction industry. I'll be needing a ride to Round Hill for this reunion thing, so anybody who might be passing through ( or flying over )the central valley on their way, please leave me a message at the Modesto Psychiatric Center @ 209-572-2804 where I pick up my messages and medications every 72 hours.

From: David Howard of San Antonio, Texas. Soon to be Longview, Texas (7/1/99) -

Comments: Married in '96, no kids yet. Quick tour of last 20 years @ UC Davis, Med School @ Loyola University of Chicago. From there I moved on to internship in Hawaii, and a radiology residency in Washington State. 

Moved back to the bay area in '93 and lived in San Ramon while working at Oakland Naval Hospital until it closed in '96. Spent a year commuting to the city to do a fellowship in MRI @ UC San Francisco before moving to the great state of Texas to finish my last two years of military slavery...oops!, service in San Antonio. 

At the end of June I will be a free man and going into private practice in East Texas, where HMO's have so far been kept at bay! Looking forward to seeing friends I've lost track of along the way.

Comments: I went to Berklee College of Music in Boston, Mass. I now play guitar for a living in Nashville, Tn. I've worked for many artists over the years. From the group "America" to "George Burns" and most things in between. I spent several years touring and recording with John Denver. Played in London's Royal Albert Hall and in Hanoi, Vietnam as well as many other countries. 

Biggest thrill was performing a piece with the San Diego Symphony (before they went under) and having my brother and his family in the audience. Released a couple of CD's of my own and have two more in the works. 

These days I'm into flyfishing, canoeing, hiking and playing with my dogs --Chester and Agatha (Bouvier des Flanders) I am married to a wonderful girl (Rhonda) from North Carolina. Can't wait to see everyone in October. Thanks to Claudia for finding me!

Finally finished my education at St. Mary's. I was working at a Regional Manager for a large credit union when I quit to be a mommy. I currently live in Pleasanton with my husband of 15 years and my two children (one boy, one girl). Would love to hear from some of the old gang. Farrell

Comments: After SRVHS I went to DVC and then on to Chico State for couple of years of hard drinking and casual studying - bad mix especially for mechanical engineering. I dropped out and regrouped for a few years. I found the perfect mate (Martha), got married and then went back to school at Hayward state to finish up on a BS in MIS. I have been working as a programmer and a project manager for the last 10 years. Martha and I have been married 12 years and have two children Claire (6) and Karl (2). We have lived in Lafayette, Walnut Creek, Livermore and for the last five years in Houston. I look forward to seeing everyone at the reunion!

Entry of Jun 04, 2003 at 12:07 [EST]
From: Don Lenhart of Bainbridge, GA -
Personal Homepage?http://

Comments: Hi Ya'll. So most of you don't remember me because I only attended SRVHS for my last two years. After SRVHS I went to Baylor University in Waco, TX. I graduated in 1984 with a BBA in Economics and took my first job at the Pacific Stock Options Exchange in San Francisco. 

While working for the PSE in the noise and clutter of day-trading, market-makers and put/call options, I started contemplating those very serious philosophical questions-- namely: ORIGINS (Where did I come from?); MEANING (Why am I here?); MORALITY (How should I live and determine "right" from "wrong"; and DESTINY (Where am I going?). After buying a Bible in June of 1985, I made the awesome discovery that Jesus Christ was who he said he was and that the Bible was indeed the very Word of God. Well, thus began a very interesting journey. This journey included a one and a half years stint working up at Mount Hermon Christian Conference Center in the Santa Cruz mountains; a two year stint working in the Financial Services Industry in Dallas, TX; and a three year stint teaching English to College Students in Mainland China from 1990-93. Then it was off to seminary in Denver, Colorado. I graduated from Denver Seminary in June of 1998 with a degree in Missiology (World Christianity). While in seminary, I met and married the lovely and tender, Miss Sharon Brinda from Minneapolis, MN. 

God closed the door on our plans to return to Mainland China, and I have been pastoring since December of 1998. Our first church was in Meridan, KS and now I am the Interim Pastor of a Southern Baptist Church in Bainbridge, GA. I love the Southern culture/weather, and God blessed us with a wonderful daughter, Rebekah in 1999. She just turned 4 last week! Anyway, God is good and life has been a real adventure-- BUT the best thing is....well, this life isn't all there is! Knowing that Christ is alive and his truth is real has brought great peace, power and purpose to previously very confused life. Jesus rose from the dead, and by His grace I'm going to live with Him forever. Working for Christ till I see Him face to face makes life worth living and causes everything to have purpose and meaning (...even the pain coming from the storms of life which are common to us all!). Blessings to everyone. Does anyone know how I can get in touch with the (now famous) Screenwriter, Ryan Rowe (SRVHS - Class of '79)? If so, please e-mail me his information. Thanks.

From: Bill London of Star, Idaho -
Personal Homepage?http://

Comments: From SRVHS went to Humboldt State University to aquire a BS in Wildlife Mgnt. Worked several seasonal jobs during college with Calif. Fish & Game, National Park Service and Colorado Division of Wildlife. 1986 found me with a permanent job with the Idaho Fish & Game as a Conservation Officer (Game Warden). I met Leanne, married and we moved into the wilderness near the Salmon River and the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness areas. What a patrol area !! Horse work in the mountains and rafts and kayaks in the rivers. WE were there for 5 years. 

We have two boys, Jake 10 yr. and Nick 8 yr. We were in Pocatello for 6 years and now live in Star, about 15 miles west of Boise. The job is a mix of law enforcement, wildlife management and public education. Best of all I get to be outside!! Leanne works in a cath lab at a local hospital. WE enjoy hunting (I just returned from an African Safari), fishing, backpacking with the boys, soccer coaching and being scout leaders. 

Obviously most of our time revolves around the boys. They say that it is important to stay in touch with your inner child, well mine livedown the hall. What fun ! I really haven't kept up with many of you from SRVHS, I'm not sure if I will be at the reunion late October is a very busy time for a Game warden with all the hunting ( & poaching) going on at that time. It would be nice to hear from any of you, please e-mail me.

Married my sweetheart from Covelo CA. Jennifer in 1985. I can thank my good friend Tom Heathorn for introducing us!

I am really looking forward to the reunion! Comment to Chuck Douros: We do need to rescue John Hankerson from the wetlands of Washington to come join the celebration!

Comments: It sure is nice to find you guys again. I didn't have the patience to stay around after passing the CA Proficiency Exam, so I just went on to DVC during our junior year. After 20+ years I'm finally ready to look back! Of course, now I wish I'd hung around to enjoy high school more, but that's water under a very old bridge, and besides, at least I can still enjoy the reunion! 

I've been a lawyer since 1991 (mostly teaching and doing immigration related cases), but would really like to do something else. So, I'm again in school at Cal State Hayward finishing my B.A. in Spanish (Senor Nivolo, can you hear me?) And, ironically, I've been doing some substitute teaching in the District, mostly at SRV High. I will likely either go on to a credential program to teach Spanish and/or English, or go back to law refreshed from this recent bout with academia. 

I have three children. My two daughters (from my first marriage in 1979 at age 18 which, alas, didn't survive law school or my subsequent growing up process) are now 18 and 14. The oldest just graduated from SRV High in the class of 1999. The other will be a sophomore there this coming year. I am remarried and we have a 5 year old son. So the oldest starts college in the fall, and the youngest starts kindergarten! I'm looking forward to seeing you all at the reunion. In the meantime feel free to e-mail or call. And, BTW, I'm happy to be in on the John Hankerson deal, if you need any help!

In October of ’89 I was hired with the FAA as a controller in Atlanta, where I am to date. I have 2 Children Christine (16) and Austin (4) and a lovely wife Andra. I enjoy playing the guitar, building and flying radio-control airplanes, and playing golf. I still talk to Jim O’neill occasionally.

Comments: Well, I'm sure I'm not the only one who is "floored" by the fact of twenty years having gone by since high school! So I will pick up my story after graduating '79... Attended San Diego State, DVC, then graduated with BA in International Relations from UOP (including a semester in Vienna, Austria. Have worked for Nordstrom for many years, studied Massage Therapy, delved into many Metaphysical philosophies, including my current study of Karmic Astrology. I "landed" in the City of Angels 6 years ago with the wild idea of pursuing acting! Sometimes I am the pursuer and on rare occasions it pursues me! 

No marriages, kids or mortgages, but I have a frisky kitten named Alex and I'm loving the creative life I'm building. Frankly, I was quite undecided about attending the reunion, but with the "preview to coming attendees" that this website has provided, I am far more curious and eager to reminisce(yeah, I had to look it up!)!! Also, if Robert G. or Liza P. see this...please e-mail me! As my infamous father would say "See ya in the Fall, if I see ya at all!"

Comments: Laura Collier, Karen Stieglitz, Patty Small, where are you? Has anyone kept up with Elizabeth Bradford? My sister, Lisa, and I braved the 20 year reunion (she knew more people than I did) in 'and were rewarded with a wonderful visit with Leslie and a kiss on the cheek from the most beautiful man in the room. But I so missed seeing the rest of you. I think of you often and with great affection: our slumber and swim parties, our own serial soap opera, our philosophical discussions on the meaning of life and the Prime Directive. Sigh. What pieces of work we all were. I hafta tell you those discussions and that dry patch of grass by the science wing were my life raft through those otherwise forgettable years. If you're ever in the neighborhood, I am in Livermore. I married the best man I've ever met in 1989, I started my own design business in 2000 and I have two new pieces coming out in a literary anthology early next year. I am happy. I hope with everything I am that you all are as well. If you are of a mind, email me: I would lovelovelove to hear from you.

Comments: QUICK BIO: Married. Two-year old daughter. Stay-Home Dad. 

Long version: Graduated from UC Berkeley in 1983. Married fellow Berkeley student, MaryEllen in 1985. Worked at UCB from '85 to '89 in administration. Moved to suburban Washington DC in 1989 for grad school. Worked for a few congressmen. Am now a full-time "Stay-Home" dad of my daughter Kristen and I love it. 

I get back to the Bay Area twice a year -- mostly to see my old friends from SR. We always have a big reunion weekend over Thanksgiving including a football game, hike in the Las Trampas Hills, and breakfast at the Alamo Cafe. 

I'm looking forward to the reunion and hope we will have a chance for an informal gathering where we can meet the families of the class of '79. It would also be great to all get together at the high school.

Comments: Well, the reunion is over and I would like to add a place for reunion attendees to write what they thought of the reunion. Since I haven't created that file yet, I'll temporarily place something here.

At one point, early on in the evening, I realized that no matter how late I stayed (and I stayed until nearly 2AM) there was no way I could possibly talk with everyone I would have wanted to. There were simply too many people I wanted to see. The original attendance list consisted of 110 alumni, but there must have been a lot of people who came at the last minute and paid at the door. 

I thought everybody really looked great and I enjoyed the food and the location. Not many seemed interested in the music or dancing, through no fault of the DJ, in my opinion. We just decided that the important thing to do was to talk with our old classmates since we had so little time to do so, relatively speaking. 

I am very grateful that my wife felt okay about my flying out to California even though she is in her last month of pregnancy. And I'm REALLY grateful that the baby decided to stay inside for a bit longer as well!

Looking through the old Wolf print articles made me really look forward to seeing folks like John Williamson or Mark Freseman. But neither one was there. Indeed a large part of the class was missing, but if it was impossible to see everyone with 120 or so alumni there, how could we possibly have done it with more there? 

I plan to keep this site running as a source for classmates to keep up with one another and to post news of their lives here. Hope to hear from all of you in the years to come.

Comments: I have a wonderful wife, Christina ("shagged" her 11 yrs. ago) and 4 kids: Monica (age 8 - into Titanic, Flare Jeans, & Spice Girls -- what 's next?); Christopher (age 6 - just like dad, nearly the smallest in his class); Dennis (age 4 - my little trooper); and Peter (age 2 - "lil PeeWee", and the last reason we've been changing diapers since '91). 

I'm the Buyer for a Corporate Computer Reseller (Desktop Products, in Emeryville) where I've been for 13 yrs (although I'd like to work closer to home). We are happy to live in Danville, a couple of blocks from a weed-pulling job I had during High School (thanks to teacher, Ernie Bennett -- the weeding job that is, not the house). 

My spare time is spent with home improvements and trying to figure out how to cram four kids and their stuff into our house. We are active in our Homeowner's Association and even set up participation in the National Night Out (for more info and setting it up in your community, check out: It's the first Tuesday in August and gives neighbors an excuse to meet each other. 

Hope to see old friends at the Reunion. Would hope that the alums living in Nor Cal could make the minimal effort it takes to be there. Maybe we could have a family-oriented soccer game or go on a nature hike in some of the remaining hills of the SRV. Thanks to all the reunion organizers, specifically, Jeff Nelsen for phoning me and John Ramsey for setting up this website.

I specialize in space planning and design, move coordination and project management, cubicle panel systems, ergonomic seating and of course GREAT customer service (Nordstrom training). 

I work from my home which allows me to be a "future" stay at home step-mom and allows me the freedom to spend as few or as many hours needed with my clients and the projects that I choose. 

I recently went on a weekend getaway with Claudia Gravelle (Muller), Devon Slinger (Suby), Jesslyn Booth (Mims) and Laura Huckabone (Sitts). We had a great time laughing and sharing about the years spent at San Ramon High. 

I am enjoying being back in the area visiting with my family and old friends. I am looking forward to seeing more familar faces at the reunion. Until then...move easy.

Comments: Sorry I couldn't be with the class in October. From John's website, It looks like a good time was had by all. I am doing well. I live in Casto Valley with my wife Irene and two boys, Nathan(6) and Nicholas(4). I work for Pacific Bell in the Industry Markets group and enjoy it very much. I always enjoy seeing fellow Wolves when I am out...It is strange going through Danville because so much has changed since alot of us grew up there. I enjoyed seeing the old pictures of Ranch Romero. I have some back from my Montair Elementary school years. Those were the days!

Comments: After SRHS I went to Chico State and graduated in 3 years, with a Social Work Degree and minor in partying. I met my husband in 1978 and married him in 1984. We have three children, Mikki - 16, Aaron - 12 1/2 and Michael - 9. We moved to Washington in 1994. I am a secretary for an Elementary School, along with helping my husband with his Ecommerce Business both on and off the net. I still love my Washington Redskins, and still have my season tickets to them. Ilove the Seattle Mariners. My hobbies are quilting, crosstitch, reading and laying out. Not much chance for that in Washington State. I love to travel, in fact just went on a 7 day cruise with my husband to the Carribean. I love spending money. But mostly I love life. I am very blessed and excited about the possibilities in my life. I still have the dream in me. I would love to catch up with other people who I knew. Anyone else who was in G.O.A.L or S.W.A.S?

Comments: After a brief encounter at DVC junior college, I took a job with PG&E as a "Field Engineering Technician". The job entailed traveling up and down the state of California designing aerial pole lines. The division I worked for downsized and I transferred into Meter Reading. (no offense to the meter readers of the world) but what a nightmare. Being chased by dogs in the pouring down rain at 6:00 am was definitely not my cup of tea.

Somehow I found my way into the world of Telecommunications (fiber optics) and have been a Project Manager / Sales Engineer for the last fifteen years. I've traveled a great deal of the United States and even did a year in Brazil. Fortunately I've had success in work, because my love life sucks. That old song, "she got the gold mine and I got the shaft", pretty well describes it. Look forward to seeing all of you at the reunion!

Our son is 2 years old and his name is Tyler. Play lots of golf and enjoy water skiing all summer. Life in the midwest is great, but I do miss the great weather and activities year round.

Comments: Well, back for a brief moment....I did hear from Mark Trent because of this years later... Anyway, we were in Greece this past summer for two weeks and in Mykonos, having a beer and watching the sunset we met a group of kids from low and behold San Ramon High School. Even the mascot for pete's sake.....It brought back many memories of the good 'ol days without stress contrary to daily trek's to the office. Based on my conversations with them, I think the generations following us will be great!!

Comments: Yes, im drunk is that not odd? i guess so IM At CHICO STATE! I would just like to present that i just recently graduated from SRVHS in the class of '99, and how this website and the interests of the people around it have been an inspiration to me. I look at this history and gape in awe of something truly uninmaginable. A lifetime i would have wish to have lived. I see people in the lists of "favorite teachers" and remembering having taking classes with them 20 yrs after all of the fine people of the class of '79 graduating. Tears in my eyes as im writing this guestbook entry, i wish the best of times to everyone, class of wahtever that went and attended the fine institution of SRVHS, and view this wonderful time of happiness as i am now. --- Adam Clark

Comments: I am a recent graduate of the class of 2000, at SRVHS. I'm not quite sure how I came across this site but I'm definelty glad I did. High school was the greatest four years of my life, so far... and I'm actaully sitting here in the library of CAL, hopefully the NEXT best four years! It's funny how I don't know any of you, but to hear you're comments remind me of the fond memories I have. Hopefully I'll be able to keep in touch with my classmates and come back to write about my life as it is years later. Keep in touch with eachother, thats a great comfort within itself!!! Linda

Comments: Mahalo to all who sacrificed time and effort to make this wonderful site. I'm again looking-up to y'all with affection, admiration, and awe, though with greater appreciation than I did as an 1978-1979 freshman. Congratulations on your respective journies, past and present. Best wishes in all that lies ahead.
