Michele is an R.N. Looking forward to seeing our class in 2002. Still can't find my hall pass! Time to update this message. Our 20 year reunion was awsome and we hand nothing but positive feedback from the alumni. It seemed that the 20 year was more attended that the 10 year. Ed Mannes did an excellent job as the committee chairman. It was great to see so many old friends that we grew up with, even before high school years. Class of '82 Rocks!

Chris Cagle Hi Looking to communicate with old friends, Dave/John Dalton or anyone else that I might have known- Thanks, Chris

Tim Cunningham The rundown: I graduated from CSULB in '88, lived in the Caribbean (Virgin Islands) from 89 -94 (adventurous!), sobered-up and got my Masters Degree in Environmental Policy & Management from the Univ. of Denver in '96. I'm still living in Denver and work as an environmental planner. (The quality of life in Colorado is very nice.) I missed the 10 yr. reunion due to my Caribbean adventures, but looking forward to July, 2002. I still go back to stay at my parents in Torrance at least once a year (Christmas). I was fortunate to have been raised in such an influential and energetic area of the world. Hope to see you in 2002.

Paula (Cutcher) Aiton Married in 1984, we now have a 7 year old daughter. We live in Central California and love, love, love living in a small town. My husband is a successful architect in Fresno and I've dabbled in lots of things mostly using computers and technology (web design, research analyst, writing,...that sort of thing). I'm also a piano tuner. I have continued to play music steadily since high school and now have five instruments I play most of the time. I recorded a praise & worship CD in 2007 with my church worship team while in Brazil (yes, you heard right, Brazil) and we'll be recording an english language CD in 2009. My primary instruments are flute and saxophone. Sorry I haven't been to any reunions. I'm just not a reunion sort of girl. Present day is keeping me busy.

My wife is a realtor and I am a pharmacy technician by day, a student by night(taking pre-requisites for pharmacy school). Hope to hear from people

Greg Daraban Its hard to believe its the reunion year. 20 years have gone by pretty fast its seems like yesterday we were all cruising around on Friday and Saturday Nights looking for Jerr's Truck so we could find the party. I married Arlene Vogeler class of 1983. We have 2 kids Justin 6 and Tyler 3 we live in the most exciting city in the world Las Vegas, Nevada. I certainly miss the beach, but I really love the fun of this 24 hour town. Arlene is co manager of a Bath and Body Store in Caesars Palace,and I'm Oddsmaker and Sports Analyst for a computer odds service. We sell odds to all the Las Vegas and Offshore Sportsbooks around the world. I currently host a radio show and was on National TV on(USA Cable)for 2 years picking games against the point spread. I was lucky enough to win the Stardust Casino Contest picking college basketball games against the spread and won $10,000 bucks. The money was great, but the best thing was my name was on the Stardust Hotel sign in lights for an entire week which was really cool.** Regarding the 2002 Reunion the committe did a great job, it was great seeing everybody.

Phil Delurgio It was great seeing so many of you at our reunion last year -- thanks Eddie for throwing a great party (as always). As for what I've been up to -- graduated from USC in '86; lived all over LA doing various things; moved to Chicago for grad school in '92; got married in '95; moved back to LA/OC in '96; Had one little guy in '00, another in '02; we moved up to NorCal in '01, and are itching to get back to SoCal.

I am a successful career person with a Fortune 500 company in Senior Management but my most rewarding aspect of my life is being a wife and mom. I have a lot of fond memories at South.

Deralyn Knappenberger Deralyn did not add her name, to this list. Her BIG sister Beth did! I figure if she signed me up in high school for all of the armed forces, I could at least put her name on some kinda list. If anyone is interested in contacting her, you can go up to my name in 1981 and send me a message for her. She is living in Northern California (Humboldt Co.) and is the proud single mother of a just turned five year old girl. Oh man, she's gonna love me for this!

Sandra Kortlang Hello Class of 82!! After hearing about our 20 yr. reunion, I went to the ol' high school and did a stroll about and boy did it ever bring back some great memories of my "time" with my pals Libby (Parks)& Sylvia (Maloney)!! I am probably the only graduate who has yet to take the "plunge" but that is cool with me. I have traveled and played and enjoyed life and have no major complaints (ya right)!! Can't wait to "trip out" on those I enjoyed and laugh at those I did not!! --Just kidding See ya soon!!

Kathi (Robertson) Scott

John Rolstead Hello to all Spartans! I am just finding this page in 2009. It was fun reading your notes, so I will add mine. I guess my biggest announcement is that I am a Libertarian. That is funny coming from the class bully (just ask the Jerr)! Life does that to you; you just keep learning about yourself. I fondly remember the summer before high school; I spent all three months on the beach at Ave I. What a life! I went in the Navy for 6 years (Electronics Tech). I met and married Elaine in 1993 (British). Misty is her daughter (1987). We had Travis in 94. We live in St. Louis, I work for Solutia as a computer systems analyst. I look forward to the 30 year reunion. See you all then!

Chris Rossi A week doesnt go by that I dont thank God for the blessing of growing up in the South Bay and attending South High with each of you. 2010 finds me celebrating 10 years in Phoenix, AZ with my wife of 12 years and our 3 children ages 11, 6, and 4. If you are ever passing through AZ or visiting loved ones, I'd welcome the opportunity to reconnect over lunch or a beer. Hope to see you all at our 30th reunion in 2012. All the Best, CR

Steve Ruffoni

Jennifer (Sales) Bemowski

Desierre (Sanchez) Montgomery I am looking forward to seeing everyone at the reunion !!! I didn't make it to the last reunion, and Joey Satery told me how much fun I missed. I will be at the next one for sure. I am still in living in Walteria with my husband of 13 years Randy. I have one daughter Tiffany that is 22 years old. Tiffany was the fourth generation in our family that graduated from South High. My mom was in the first graduating class in 1960 and my father and little sister Wendy, also graduated from South. After high school I began my 25 years down on the waterfront as a Longshoreman with the I.L.W.U local #13. I just recently transfered to the Marine Clerks local #63. My daughter Tiffany is also a Casual down on the docks. She will be the fourth generation longshoreman in our family soon. I can't wait to see everyone again it's going to be a blast !!

Joey Satery Hope all is well with everyone. See you all at the next South High Alumni function. Take care.

Marc Schaefle Hello

Elana (Schupack) Duewel Life is good here in Folsom, CA where my husband Mark and our two boys Kevin (9) and Brett (6) live. I would love to hear from old friends. You can e-mail me at

Michael Shurgot apparently the only class I took at SHS that is relevant to my current career (CPA) is algebra. If I had known this would be the case, I would have spent much more time "behind the library" and much less time trying to remember which kind of tea (Ceylon and Darjeeling) was flung into the harbor during the Boston Tea Party!!!

Michelle (Siminich) Sabina

Laurel Snider

Sue (Spencer) Havris Hello all...I'm hoping this update "takes." I think I posted my name change the last time, but I didn't change any information. I'm living in Tucson, Arizona, where I teach 4th grade. I miss the South Bay. I was there Christmas, 2007 with my husband, Jeremy. I'm assuming I missed the 25 year reunion, but I'm so detached from my high school life. Feel free to write me if you remember me. I'd love to here from you.

Matt Stellino Hello fellow Spartan brethren: Well I'm a standing on a corner in Phoenix, Arizona and life is good. Chris Rossi is my neighbor, my two kids Matthew and Molly(11 & 8)are growing like weeds and keeping me busy, and I've been married to the same beautiful woman for going on 14 years. Love to hear from any and all alum and if you're ever passing thru hell (aka--phoenix, az, it's hot here ya know!!)look me up.

Tammy (Strawn) Parsons Hey everyone! I'm looking forward to seeing everyone at the reunion next summer! Wow, a 20 year reunion... that makes me feel old. I married a guy (Neil) from Northern California 17 years ago and were doing great! We have 5 kids, 2 girls and 3 boys from the ages 16 to 7. We live in Lakewood, CA not to far from "home" (Torrance). I'm a full time mom and a part time student at CSULB. You can check out our web site at!

Todd Thompson I just decided to check and see if there was an alumni site for South High.....and here it is!! I have really enjoyed reading about a lot of you and what you are doing now. Here is my contribution =) I moved to Arkansas in 1986. My father is from AR. and a lot of my family lives here. I was dating Jennifer Mobley (class of '83) before I left and came back to marry her in 1988. We still live in Arkansas and have two kids, Taylor (11) and Kaitlyn (8). I can honestly say that, next to my decision to follow Jesus Christ, my wife and kids are the best thing to ever happen to me. Life has been good to me to say the least. I have so many good memories from school....having English with Kim Wyrick and Kirk Brunton, playing in the basketball team with Eddie, Bill, Alan, Gary, Matt, etc., and many many more. I will bookmark this site and re-visit often to look for any changes.

Tim White The other night I was looking at my yearbook for the first time in many years and it made me think about the twenty year reunion coming up soon. I'm now married to my lovely wife Daniela and have two young children. We met while I was touring around Europe in 1991. She comes from Austria. After getting married we moved to Maui and started a successful business dealing with tourists, we love it here. Hope to attend in 2002.

Kim (Wyrick) Trudnowski

Jim Wyzard After years of lurking, I finally decided to update this page once I heard about the passing of my friend Ron Cleary, class of 1981. Ronnie and I hadn't spoken for awhile, time and distance are always the prime culprits. He was and will always be my friend and I will miss him tremendously just like I have missed him over the past few years. Life is funny that way you never know how much you will miss something until it's gone. I've been living in the NYC area for the past 10 years and I have been on the east coast for over 20. I am re-married with a 2-year old daughter. My daughters from my first marriage live in the South Bay and both graduated from South High. I am proud of them as any father could be. NYC is my home now but a part of me will always be in the South Bay. Those friendships from the past are the part of the foundation of who I am and as I think back to all the great times I had at South I was lucky to have those friendships. As I moved forward in my life I was comforted in knowing that at one time Ronnie and his family treated me as one of their own. When Ronnie's dad passed away 10 years ago a part of me went wit him. With Ronnie's passing a bigger piece of me goes as well. Farewell my friend, rest easy...

SueAnne Yee I don't know if anyone remembers me...I was a pretty shy band twinkie :) Went on to UCLA and ended up in aerospace for two years, before marrying a fellow UCLA grad. Been married 18 years and have 12 year-old twins (boy & girl--lucky me!) Have been in sunny San Diego for 7 years now (after 10 years in the Imperial Valley desert!!). My contact info: Drop me a line sometime!
