Class of 1964
Hank Aptekar My father travelled a lot in his business and I only spent one year at SHS, graduating in 1964. I went to El Camino College but the US Army got me. I went to Vietname and fought there and was lucky enough to survive without going insane. Having no real direction I made a career of the US army and retired in 1965. I then worked ten years in Civil Service and after 30 years in the US Gov't without a penny or any investments, I started my own business. I now live in Las Vegas, have a beautiful home, a college fund for my kids and a good investment portfolio. I also was a multi sport referee add referreed high school and collegiate basketball, football, volleyball and baseball. I was on the Baseball Committee for the Olympics in 1988 in Seoul, Korea. I retired from officiating sports a few years ago (the knees, always the knees). I still run my business and am successful. I also am involved in professional wrestling as a "bad guy" manager and referee.

John Backlund After graduation I served an LDS mission in Sweden, graduated from BYU with a BA in History and the University of Utah with a JD. Practiced law for 9 years. I have served as a District Judge for 24 years. We have 4 children and 8 grandchildren. My wife's name is Madalyn and we enjoy traveling and spending time with our children and grandchildren.

Don Van Valkenburg Moved from S. Calif to the Pacific NW in '05 from Long Beach where I lived for about 30 years. Got tired of the rat race down there and just love the weather and beauty of the Pacific NW - no the rain doesn't bother me at all. I Still make wine and beer on occasions and simply manage my rentals the rest of the time. Rental property has always been a sideline for me and helped supplement my income in S. Cal, but with this move I have committed to the rental housing business for 100% of my income now. Email: valkenburg is the prefix separated by "at" symbol then I am doing this to prevent my email from being harvested by spam programs
