Just look at our website and you will know how I spend my days. www.1888DrKaplan.com.

Charna is a geologist in D.C, Ben is a financial planner in Dallas, Richard is a software engineer in Dallas, and Sarah is a sophomore at U of Ariz.

After graduating from Rutgers with a bachelor’s degree in chemistry, I changed my intended career – twice. With a master’s degree from Boston University in public relations, I worked in that field for three years full time and then for three years part time while attending Rutgers Law School. I received my law degree in 1980 and have been practicing law ever since, first as a deputy attorney general and then in private practice. I’ve been a partner at Hill Wallack LLP in Princeton, NJ for 12 years. My wife Susan and I have been married for almost 35 years and live in Highland Park. She’s a psychologist for the State. We have three children: Alana, 28, lives in New York and handles press relations for a Broadway production company. Joshua, 24, is married to Adina, lives in Silver Spring, MD, and works for the Department of Justice. Rachel, 19, will be a freshman at Brandeis University in the fall, after having spent a year studying in Israel. I look forward to seeing everyone at our 40th.

After graduating from Medical School I trained in Internal Medicine and the subspecialty of Rheumatology. I spent many years in full-time academic medicine at SUNY Stony Brook in New York and then joined a rheumatology practice in Livingston affiliated with Saint Barnabas Medical Center. My wife Marjorie (of 36 years) and I now live on the Upper West Side of NYC and our two sons (Josh, 30 and Adam, 26) are pursuing careers in music and film. I still love Bob Dylan.

Kay Rockman, Liz
Went to Syracuse, then U. of Miami. Got married, had a great daughter, wrong husband. Happily re-married now. Taught special education for 20 years, took early retirement but ended up only taking a year off. Went back to work this year at a facility for challenged youth coming from jail or court-mandated to be in school, kids who are homeless, some residential, some day students… all facing difficulties in many different ways. It’s a very challenging population to be working with and I love it. (Last update 3/21/07)
With a political science degree in hand from Muhlenburg College, I decided not to go to law school. Instead, I traveled the eastern seaboard with a carnival for two seasons. In 1974 I followed some carny friends to Dallas and have been here ever since. After that season in the weeds, I met and married a great woman with two young kids and rejoined the mainstream world. We were married almost 15 years when I lost her to lung cancer. I met and married another wonderful woman a year and a half later. Rhonda had lost her husband of many years to heart disease. The circumstances of our meeting were a real “God thing.” Our family now includes three married children and five grandchildren. We live on a small acreage in Lucas, TX – a suburb of Plano that is a suburb of Dallas. – with two dogs and two horses. I’ve earned my living selling semiconductors, always based in Dallas, and covering most all of North America at one time or another. Some of you will remember my Dad, Richard Keer. He and Mom live in Florida. I know Dad would love to hear from any of his former students. He loves the LHS68 web site. See you all in September (Last update 8/8/08) 40th Reunion attendee.
Kelly Schartz, Jean
In 1973 I went to Europe and ended up living in Copenhagen, Denmark until 1979. I was then transferred to Sydney, Australia where I’ve been until now. I married an Aussie and have a 32-year-old son, Jared, and an 29-year-old daughter, Alizah. My family including my mother were at the 40th Reunion. I have an importing and wholesaling business, but spend quite a bit of time playing golf. I have seen Ken Segall a few times in Sydney since the 40th. I plan on attending the 50th.

Kirschenbaum Suckno, Judy
I’ve been living in Boynton Beach, FL since 2002 with my wonderful husband of 38 years who many of you know from LHS. We have a daughter, 31, living in CT and a son, 25, a CPA, who lives about two miles away with his girlfriend (high hopes for this relationship). We love it here. Moving was one of the best things we have ever done. Oh, and so was taking up golf! (Last update 1/28/09)

A “brief” bio is really not possible. Suffice to say that other than a few years going to college in Colorado, my address has always been somewhere in northern NJ. I am married to a beautiful lady and have two kids. Our daughter is starting college in September, 2007 and our son is a junior at Parsippany Hills High (we started later than most of you). After a 30-year career in Corporate Accounting I took the proverbial “package” when Pfizer bought Warner Lambert. Since 2001 I have been golfing, skiing and doing a few real estate appraisals to pay for my sports. Just waiting for the kids to go off to college and then who knows what? (Last update 8/7/07)

After college at U. Wisc., I met my husband Bill Orton in Durham, NC. His jobs in the chemical industry have taken us to S. Carolina, Germany, back to SC, Pennsylvania and finally in 1996 to NJ. Our son Nick arrived in 1979. He lives/works in NYC and is marrying the lovely Daria in July. Yeah! I have worked as a medical artist, graphic artist, framer and fine artist. Now I am traveling a lot with Bill and seeing more of the world. I plan to attend the reunion in September and the check is in the mail… (Last update 3/21/08) 40th Reunion attendee.

This reunion has been expertly and lovingly planned. What a great effort! Forty years later I am old, gray and still complaining. Live in Newfoundland, Canada since 1974, love international travel and Leonard Cohen (saw him in concert a few weeks ago.) Met up with world-famous Louie Fink in NYC a few years ago. That was a treat. I have one husband, two daughters, three dogs, one guinea pig and a practice in Ob/Gyn affiliated with the medical school here. We have great air, icebergs and a thriving art scene. Come see. Am planning to attend the reunion (with trepidation). It will be wonderful! (Last update 6/12/08) 40th Reunion attendee.

After college, I lived in Chicago for 11 years, then moved back to NJ for 15 years. In Jan. of 1999, my life partner of 32 years, Trish, and I sold our chiropractic practice and hit the road in an RV. We’ve been traveling ever since, and loving it! I’ve played drums & percussion in many bands over the years, and still play when I get the chance. Since we’ve been on the road, we’ve done some work with Habitat for Humanity, especially rebuilding in New Orleans. Life is good – good friends, lots of music festivals, beaches and art. We’ve also traveled in Europe, Hong Kong & China, Israel and the Caribbean. (Last update 4/30/07)
