Comments:

I graduated from the UNLV Hotel School in 1973 and have been in the hotel/resort marketing side of the business ever since. I have served Hilton, Westin, Ritz-Carlton and Hyatt among others. I have lived in LA (twice), Honolulu, Washington DC (twice), Chicago and Vancouver BC Canada.
In 2015 I completed a hotel consulting assignments in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, a resort in Florida and at a hotel in Delaware. I accepted a college teaching position this fall closer to home.
I have always been a car buff and currently have an Acura NSX, a Triumph TR-3 roadster and a Jaguar MK IX Saloon as well as our 'normal' cars.

School Story:

I was a horrible teenager....I graduated with a goatee (Mr. Miller hated it!). I dated a girl from Henrietta (we hated Henrietta!). I got many "noogies" from Mr. Gumina, Mr. Nicely threw me out of his class, Mr. Ludwig dragged me out of study hall and Mr. Shelly told my folks I should attend military school!
I went to the 20 year reunion in 1988 and was voted "most improved male" and was presented a hand mirror. I had only one way to go......
I still consider Pittsford my home town but was lucky to get out alive!

What year did you graduate from Pittsford Sutherland High School?

1968

This past year i added a daughter in law. We love Lucy and she is a great match for older son Tyler Brown. I look forward to coming to Pittsford for a 50th reunion of the PCS class of 1968.

Hi class, I am planning a road trip through Pittsford the end of July and would welcome a chance to see my classmates. I will see Dennis Jones and hope to connect with Brian Terho and Nancy Hammer (Ferris). I would love to meet at "Thirsty's" (Tallo's Town Tavern) or Hicks & McCarthy's. Cheers for now. Gary

Hi Shelley, sorry to hear of your health issues and hope you are on the road to better health. Delighted to hear of your desire to get involve with our 50TH in 2018. I would love to help if I were closer. As a suggestion, all attending should have a photo attached to their name tag of thier 1968 yearbook photo otherwise we won't recognize this group of aging Baby Boomers! I went to our 20th in 1988 and did not recognize many but my pal Dennis Jones pointed out several.. I hope you are feeling better and all my best. Gary Brown

Hi Deborah, when we moved to Pittsford in 1960 I transferred into Jefferson Road School and my teacher was a Mrs. Lady. She stayed with me after school so I might catch up to the better NY schools. She was great and I wonder if she is related to you? Happy Holidays!

I was fortunate to see Kathy this past summer when I went to ROC for a friends wedding. We had a great lunch together and then went to see our high school. She was a special lady and will be missed.

Great to have the chance to see Bill Burleigh my 10th grade geometry teacher at PCS during our visit in summer 2015.
I apologized to him for all the disruption I may have caused in his class but made sure to tell him it was all Bill Higgin's fault!

It was great to visit classmates while in Rochester recently for a wedding. Here is Brian Terho, Nancy Hammer (Ferris) and me talking of great times at PCS. The 35 cent hamburger at Hick's is now $11.00 but still yummy as ever. Pittsford looked great!
