Torrey Boomer, thanks for bringing the axe and rocking the classics… Jennifer Black and Denise Obernberger, you two are as beautiful as ever and you both still look 25 years old… Kristin Cooper, You’re another one who looks so young, it was great meeting your husband, and thanks for the potential hook-up…Michelle Hudson, It was nice talking to you the other night, thanks for mentoring my niece and nephew…Lisa George, words cannot express how I appreciate your kindness Saturday. It meant a lot.

To the rest, i didn’t forget you. I just don’t want to ramble on forever. Email me, if you like.

We should probably do a 25th.

Comments: As your 20 year reunion approaches, I can’t help but think of your classmate who could make anyone smile. My brother, Cal Kessel, passed away in October 2005. Please remember him as you reflect back on the good times that were had at Gulf High. I know he loved everyone at Gulf and was so proud to be a part of the soccer team. When we’d be out and about in NPR, he felt like a celebrity because everyone not only accepted him, but made him feel special by just waving and saying “hi”. Thank you for befriending him, he’ll be with you in spirit….and dancing the night away from up above.

Name: Kenneth Fish
Class of: 1988
Now living in: Washington DC
Date: Mar 12, 2008
Comments: Hay all, it’s been along time since I’ve see most of you. Was looking forward to traveling down to NPR this summer to attend the class reunion, but as fate has it my wife just gave birth to twins, and yes they are my first. So I had to buy a bigger place to house them in…Fish need room. So with my work and family, I’m just not going to make it, hopefully will be down for Thanksgiving, for any one wanting to hook up.

Just a quick recap of what’s been going on…

Most of you know that I went into the Marines with Jason Ritz (lost track of him in Japan) right after high school and served in the first Gulf War, went back to school and finished my education in computer science, except I found collage to a bit boring so I went to a tec school or two. I finally got married in 1999 where I lived in Georgia where my wife worked for the CDC, moved backed up to Washington DC so she could take a job in the FDA and I worked as computer contractor for the government. 2005 I started my own company offering IT and desktop support for non profits in the DC area. In December 2007, my wife gave birth to our twins, a boy and a girl.

Not a bad life for 20 years, well I hope all are doing great, and wish every one well, so don’t be strangers.

I somehow managed to stumble my way into a career in IT which has allowed me to do a lot of traveling and has also resulted in me living in the bay area in California and now Portland, Oregon. I’ve been married for going on 15 years and have two great girls, 11 and very nearly 14. I’d love to hear from anyone who might be interested in catching up. I’m planning on heading back for the reunion and I look forward to seeing everyone there.

Comments: Hello!

I was recently visiting my father in Hudson, Florida, and my husband happen to put my maiden name, Spoeth, in the computer, and the Gulf High web site came up. It was noted that FRANK DUDAS was inquiring about me, and I couldn’t believe my eyes! I would love to hear from Frank or any other person who happens to remember me. I have a hard time remember who is who sometimes, as I went to three different high schools.

After leaving Florida when I was seventeen, I returned to live in New Port Richey in 1993 with my husband for the next six years. We had our first child, Timothy in 1996, born in Tarpon Springs. We then left Florida…thank goodness…approximately six years ago to finally come home to Wisconsin.

We now have Timothy and Michael, ages 8 and four at this time. I am working part time as an admitting clerk at the local hospital so I can be home with the children, especially over the summer. Life is good.

Let me know how you are doing if you happen to read this.

Thanks.

This is a great website. I am sorry I missed you all at the reunion. I have been livng in northern Arizona for about four years.
I went to college in central and northern California. I got my degree in Philosophy.
In 1994 I wasn’t ready to do anything serious, so I moved to Page, Arizona, where I just played. This is the beginning of the Grand Canyon.
I was a river guide. No white water, but I had a great time. I had to get serious about three or four years later. I moved to St. Pete area as a social worker.
I am a teacher now.
I was engaged for three years to an Italian. (The last three years) I was lucky to meet his family in Italy.
I just spent this last summer there. It was beautiful. But now we are not together. I feel like I got my taste buds wet with Europe, so I want to travel more. I am almost finish with my Masters in Education.
I am looking for Liz Jessup(Class of 87), Danielle Ciajowski (Class of 87) Joe Seevers, and Allison Brown.
I thought it might cool to have our next reunion with class of 89, and 87.
Ciao
May the Force Be with You All!!!

Comments: WOW…what a mind numbing experience! This is wonderful to have this site which enables us to rekindle lost friendships. Feel free to email me anyone!!! I have been married for 10 years to an Army solider, who will probably do this gig for the full 20 and then some. I have been to Hawaii, Georgia and currently Wisconsin. In June hubby will doing a tour for a year in Korea, I will take that opportunity to move back in with the folks in Florida and save some money (money such a wonderful thing). I have two crazy boys Spencer (5) and Teague (3) and a dog, Vanya (9). My hubby just recieved his BA in Management Communication. As far as the BA I am on the 30 year program…we just move too much to be able to stick with a degree program long enough for me to get the degree core done, BUT….I will be getting my Associates degree in Supervisory Management in May 2000. Not ideally what I would like, but it is a start. Ideally would be starring in a motion picture ! next to Ben Affleck with a lot of juicy love scenes, but next to that being able to be a stay at home Mom and doing the PTA, chauffer gig and June Cleaver housewife bit would be outstanding, but in the end being a Human Resource Manager sounds almost as exciting as both. Obviously, I still talk way too much…LOL
