Former CEO, now retired. Living the good life on a lake in northern NJ: fishing, swimming, sailing, and -- in the winter -- freezing my **** off.
What's an ol' Florida boy doing in a place like this? Oh yeah, now I remember, I married a Jersey girl.
Hi, Marc, Lucia here. I tried to leave you a message, but am on the road and internet access is iffy. My e-mail address is email@example.com . I can receive that even when my old laptop won't access internet sites. Thanks for the kind words about my books. I do remember you from band. I have an image of you in the drum section. Is that a correct memory or one of those tricky false ones?
Sure, I remember you from the trombone section of the band. I just found out about this website, and I'm delighted to be renewing acquaintances with former classmates. I'm retired and in NJ now, but I do still occasionally get back to WPB. The Thursday PBHS breakfasts sound like fun. How many people generally attend?
Glad to see you joined the PBHS Network. I was in the band in '59 and sat in the same section with Paul Carroll, Dane Bogue, Clifford Burg, etc. I graduated in '61. I still live in West Palm Beach and usually attend the Thursday PBHS breakfasts at the Newport Cafe ( see the events page). Next time you are in town drop by. Thanks again, George Reese
Well HI back at you Marc,
Of course I remember Mrs. Chaney’s “so called” geometry class. But after 50 years there a few fuzzy spots in my memory of HS… Was it you or John Jarvis who sat in front of me in Mr. Kirshner’s trig class? Whichever of you it was, I always wanted you (or him) to miss class (for science club –Alchemia- or something). Then, I could slip into your (or his) seat behind that Canadian girl who sat in the front desk and, figuratively speaking, pull her pig tails.
Didn’t we (you, Bob Godwin & I) also get out of class to go to Rotary Club lunches?
My long story, short: UF; Navy helicopter pilot (South China Sea ‘65 – ’66); spotty career with an unstable corporation known as Pan Am ‘til they finally died in ’91; and a dozen other airlines; filling in and overlapping most of the 80’s running my dad’s furniture repair business on Georgia Ave, WPB. Then the FAA said I had to retire from flying at age 60, so here I am.
Olene & I have two daughters. One is single in NYC working for a large law firm. The other, who was born in Toms River, NJ, while I was based at NAS Lakehurst, is married and has given us two grandchildren in California, which is why we are here. I have become fairly active in the VFW in the last 5 or 6 years.
At the 50th last summer in WPB, Olene & I happened in on the weekly breakfast at the Newport Café and discovered George Reese (Thumper, from “my” trombone section) and a bunch of other PBHS’ers from our era. What a pleasant surprise that was! We expect to be in WPB again this year, the first week of July for a family reunion.
I see from your brief profile that you are in NJ and married to a Jersey girl. Tell us how that happened.
Our best to you and yours,
Hello Marc, I remember you from school. Idon't remember what class we had together, but we did. You grad with my older brother Joel. I knew so many of your classmates because I was always with my brother. Welcome to this website. I hope you have search for those that you can remember. I wish everyone would send an up dated pic. of themslelves. Who knows how many times we cross pathes and never realize it. Again welcome. You Joined Christina's group. We too were very good friends. My brother and I were bag boys at the Searstown Shopping Center. We work at the Kwik Chek grocery store and Christina would come in the store and all of us guys would drop what we were doing to look at her. Those were the days.
