1970s

Class of 1979

Still living the dream in Southern California. I am a managing partner for B&H Energy Partners, LLC, which specializes in oil and gas exploration/development projects. Unfortunately, due to the tax and regulation overkill in the Golden State, I am working in Houston where I commute every couple of weeks. If any brothers are in the Houston area, please let me know where I can get a free beer! My daughter is a junior at Arizona State University.

I am currently enjoying the joys of retirement by skiing and biking as much as I can!

I was fortunate to attend the homecoming game against Northwestern this past October and reconnect with a bunch of Brothers from the 1970's including Brian Lehman, Skip Mohler, John Tallone, Skip Parks, Harry Barfoot and many others. In fact, Harry Barfoot and I walked back to the House through campus after the game and it reminded me of old times. We got a great chance to catch up and it made me realize just how much fun we all had living together at Pi Kap. I hadn't seen many of the brothers in over 30 years and everyone was so welcoming that it was a testament of how close we all were. Living in the house is truly one of the great memories of my life!

I've now been retired for six years. I highly recommend it. I recently took it upon myself to call some brothers with whom I was in the house. It was a very enjoyable experience. Shortly later this site suggested virtually the same thing. I now live in Spain and don't get back to the house for alumni weekends and don't have the opportunity to do my catching up in person. It is a little awkward at first, but, more or less they are the same guys they were thiry years ago, and conversation flows. Try it!

I am currently wintering at my condo in Arizona. I enjoy playing golf 4-5 times a week, hiking, seeing shows at the many theaters in the area, eating great Mexican food and basically living the good life!

After two years of planning, my firm is about to launch the National Association of Singles (NAS). NAS is essentially a clone of the AARP for the 106+ million single adults in the U.S. (21 and up). It will offer affordable health and other insurances + content and ultimately lobbying.

Would love to have feed back from Alpha Mu Alums...particularly you single guys...like me.

Class of 1968

I have been working as a Controller for Giant Floor and Wall Covering Co., in Northeastern Pa. for the past 9 years. Although I enjoy my work,
I am looking very seriously at semi-retiring at the end of 2010. A full retirement is not on the immediate horizon; I am just hoping to cut back on some of my working hours. By doing so, I will play a little more golf and, maybe, be a little bit more competitive with Korecky, Pollack, Tee Burns, JT Gulley, and the rest of the Pi Kapps that attend our Annual Golf Outing in July.
My better half, Nancy, is planning on retiring at the end of June. We would like to do a little more traveling, something we both love.

Bob & Gay Wenner. Toasting the Good Life.

We posted here three years ago that we were ""hitting the road"" fulltime in our RV. WOW, what a wonderful life we have been having traveling the country. The only part on the continental U.S. we have not yet visited is the Pacific northwest, but that is scheduled for 2008. As this update is being posted, we are visiting family and friends at our ""home"" in Harrisburg, Pa. and will be departing shortly for Boston. After a month in Boston, we will head south and winter in Florida (Orlando & Bradenton). Stay tuned and stay in touch.

After waiting almost 20 years after my retirement for my wife (Gay) to do the same, she has finally received her Gold Watch, and we are now in the process of selling off all our worldly possessions and preparing to ""hit the road"" as full time RVers beginning October 18, 2003. We are excited about this new lifestyle and hope we will have an opportunity to visit some of you in the near future.

Still involved in executive recruiting in the banking industry. Running in the morning and spending time with nonprofit activities.

I had a good career as an engineer and manager with General Motors. I retired in my late 57s and am thankful for good health and a great wife. There have been some bumps in the road, of course, but generally I've had a good life. I credit Pi Kapp with giving me social skills and helping develop interpersonal communications. Otherwise, the Brothers were great drinking buddies.

I have arrived in "Geezerville", but I did accomplish a few things along the way. I picked up a couple more academic degrees, became an ordained Episcopal priest, published a few books, held political office, taught at a university, and married the lovely Kathleen Cooney in 1970. We have two children and two grandchildren. In 2008, I retired as Rector Emeritus of St. Mary's Episcopal Church in High Point, North Carolina. We currently live in Lynchburg, Virginia, where Kathy paints. We both do civic work and travel, and I indulge my four-decades-old passion for fly fishing, which I have done throughout the US as well as Europe and Central America. It's been a great life. My best wishes to all the brothers, young and old.

I have continued to stay active working. After selling my staffing firm, I decided to continue executive search consulting on a limited basis, which has turned into a 13 year career specializing on search in commercial banking. I remain active in Rotary International, maintain a Board of Directors role with the CT Chapter of March of Dimes and teach high school students through Junior Achievement. On a non-business basis, run and work out daily, ski and play golf as weather permits. On Monday, I celebrated my thirty sixth anniversary with my wife Judi. I was also asked to help colonize a new chapter of Pi Kappa Phi at Quinnipiac College in Hamden, CT, but realized the time commitment was greater than I could commit.

Would have enjoyed the golf event scheduled for this summer;. unfortunately, had a torn patella tendon repaired in June and out of action until the end of September.

Class of 1957 

Since leaving Penn State, I complete a Masters and PhD in Geology at the University of Rochester. Between the two degrees was a 23-month stint in the Army at Fort Monmouth, NJ. From Rochester, and now with wife and family, we moved to Geneva, NY where I remained on the faculty of Hobart and William Smith Colleges for 36 years. My research has been rock- and sediment-centered. Rock stuff is still ongoing in PA. Sediment stuff is now via the USGS in San Francisco Bay.Carole and I moved to the Bay Area in 2001. We have two grown grandchildren via our son Tom's family. They live in Saratoga, CA. Sadly, Tom died in 2007. We have an infant grandchild by our daughter and her husband who live in SF. Our daughter took her PhD in biochemistry. She now works for Genentech. We enjoy CA very much but miss the greening of the landscape in the summer. We even miss snow and thunderstorms.

I have been out of school so long that it would be impossible to talk about post college activity. My wife and I recently became great grandparents, a shocking development for us. I am in the process of going through my third retirement.

Francis E. (Red) Warner (1951) died on November 18, 2006 in Midland Michigan. He had a very successful career as an architect with over 60 homes, 5 churches, hotels, shopping malls, ski resorts and commercial properties to his credit, and a wonderful life with his wife, Jo, whom he met at Penn State, one son, Scott, one daughter, Leslie, and four grandchildren.
