55 Year Reunion Youtube Slide Video
The classreport website only allows for 4 slide shows. I really don't want to "disable" any of them and insert the video from our 55th reunion. Therefore to view the pictures, copy and paste the following URL to your browser. There are over 20 minutes of pictures that you won't want to miss. Janet Stair, wife of Dick Stair, created the video with input from our reunion committee who worked very hard on this project. We thank you...!
Another way to access the video is to go directly to www.youtube.com. In the "Search" engine, enter: WASHINGTON HIGH SCHOOL CLASS OF 1962 55 YEAR CLASS REUNION, PHOENIX ARIZONA
Marianne Usko Brown,
I really enjoyed my years at WHS. They were very memorable years with studies and sports, (a little heavier on the sports part and the relationships that were developed there). Phoenix College was much the same, playing basketball and running track (two national championships in track). Then it was off to North Dakota working for Morris and Knudsen as an operating engineer (heavy equipment operator), seven days a week 12-16 hours a day. I thought “Hey, this is a little too much work, I need to go back to Phoenix and finish school”, so I did.
In 1965 I went to work for General Electric and experienced many changes during the next 41 years. I worked for four companies (General Electric, Honeywell, Honeywell/NEC/Bull, Bull SA) and never left the building. Oh yes, in the middle of all that I spent two years with Uncle Sam in South Korea. I retired from Bull SA (French main-frame computer division) in April 2007.
The greatest year in my life was 1969, when I met the love of my life, Sandi Pribbenow. We married in 1971. The rest is all history - We have five beautiful daughters, thirteen grandchildren and that will be sixteen grandchildren by June.
I still ride a motorcycle, I am a third degree black belt in karate, I currently do residential and commercial remodeling and I am a Mormon!
