Gaffney Heavener, Marilyn
I’ve been married to my husband Jim (LHS 65) for almost 37 years. We have two daughters ages 35 and 33 and one son, age 32. All are married and we have 8 grandchildren. Our oldest granddaughter just became a TEENAGER and our youngest granddaughter is just two months old. We have four girls and four boys and they sure make life very interesting around here! I love this huge family that I have!!! Over the years, I have kept in touch with a few friends from high school and we have had some mini-reunions along the way. It is always great to see old friends. (Last update 4/15/07) 40th Reunion attendee.

Genser, Gary
I’ve lived in CT the last 20 years with my wife Carol. Prior to CT we spent most of our time in Los Angeles. Carol and I have been together 31 years and have two kids. My son is 30, graduated from Cornell and has decided to go to law school in San Diego. My daughter is 27, married, graduated from Penn State and works for a PR firm in Wash. DC. I’ve been in the toy industry 26 years currently working for Hasbro as VP Customer Business Mgt. I promise there will be no lead in this bio! We have been students of A Course In Miracles for 23 years. We’re licensed foster parents. No kids right now because I am retiring next April and traveling across country in our RV. Then returning to our condo in Myrtle Beach. For closer look try Myspace search: carandgar (Last update 12/1/07)

Gerstein, Louis

Gesek, Patricia
I’ve been living in Texas now for ten years. I’m remarried to a retired pharmacist and I work at El Paso E&P in Houston as a Land Assistant. Our department leases blocks of land in the Gulf of Mexico for exploration and production and we also cover So. Louisiana. The work is interesting and my coworkers are great. Tom and I have a 35′ sailboat that he likes to race (pretty successfully), and I like to meet him for the parties – although I have been known to participate. We live in a townhouse on a marina right by our boat. It’s a fun lifestyle and our social life revolves around the yacht club, sailing and family. From my husband’s family, we have four grandsons and one newborn granddaughter – finally! My daughter, Tracy, lives in West Orange and recently married. My son, Chris, lives here in Houston and is unattached. I’ll try to make it to the reunion. I’ll have to study everyone’s pictures so I can semi-recognize all of you and you me. I enjoyed the tenth reunion but the 40th – how could that be?!?! (Last update 2008)

Glick, Anita
I moved to Washington, D.C. in 1975 to take a job with the National Endowment for the Arts. After a kaleidoscopic 20-year career that included stints as an arts administrator, fundraiser, diplomatic wife, secretary, church choir singer, car saleswoman, and writer/editor, I’ve been teaching elementary school for the past ten years. Having a wonderful time; glad that I’m here! (Last update 4/3/07) 40th Reunion attendee.

Glynn, James
Live down the shore for the past 20 years, still have friends and family in Livingston, so my wife and I (Denise, Florio Glynn, LHS class of ’70), are in town all the time. Until my stroke in ‘06 (i’m OK, thanks for asking!), i have operated a small recording studio and even smaller record label and recorded a CD of my songs. If emailed i’ll send one out to whoever might want a giggle or two…thanks. Hope to see some “old” friends at the next reunion. God bless and peace to all.(Last update 5/13/07) 40th Reunion attendee.

Grossman, Wynne
I’ve been a California girl ever since I visited Kenny Segall in the mid-70s and decided it was the place for me. I live on a couple of acres in Marin County, with deer, feral cats and an occasional bobcat. For many years I directed leadership development and community health programs for a hospital association, so I traveled around the country working with community coalitions and speaking at conferences. Now I run the statewide organization that advocates for community oral health in CA. I love hiking — Dolomites, Tahoe, Sedona — and going to health spas. How about a semi-reunion in CA?
