Looking for: All past friends
Memories: Although I graduated from General Douglas MacArthur HS in 1971 after being asked to leave DAHS (as at that time I have to admit I was a little wacky) I have never forgotten the friends I had at Division as most of them I had been in grammar school with. I have always thought of you and always wanted to still be there while I was attending MacArthur. Friends there were just not the same. Although it's been about 30 years since I've seen most of you, you are thought of often with fond memories. To name a few Debbie Stebbins, Joanna Stewart, Geri Gibson, Teri Tripp, Debbie Robinson, Audrey and Ray Backer, Steven and Thomas Geronimous (and your brothers too) and there are so many I can't begin to mention them all. Since I last saw most of you after graduation I became a hairdresser for many years and then did a few other things here and there and for the past 19 years. I have been a Floral Designer, an award-winning one at that. I now live in the sunny state of Florida, own my own home and have a 28-year-old son and a 4-year-old grandson. Would you believe it, we're old enough to be grandparents? I live about 2 minutes from another classmate some of you may know, who I've known for over 40 years and is my most cherished friend, her name is Rita Sherwood. You might have seen her at the last reunion. Next one she goes to I think I may just join her. I would really love to hear from you so please drop a line or two and let me know how you're doing and what's been going on the past 30 years. I hope you all are happy, in good health and enjoying life. With fondest thoughts of you all, Lisa.

Memories: After 8 years at Holy Family I was really happy to meet Doris Flynn, Louann Duggan, Wendy Eng Hong, Kenny Murphy, Chris Euell, Kevin McHugh... We all went our separate ways, but I have lots of great memories. Mr. Fricke's class, senior ski trip, Mr. Balas's class, cutting school with Ellen Shaw and having wild parties and Carl P's house. Donna Pantesco, you were wild! Lot's of good times.
Comments: Jim and I have lived in Hawaii for 2 years, Virginia, South Africa for 2 years, New Jersey, California, Pennsylvania and now Maryland. Lots of traveling, but we have lived here on the bay for 10 years now. Great place to bring up kids. We have two. Caitlin is 17 and Timothy is 15. Big jocks. I spend my life going to lacrosse games (he's a goalie, she's a middie) volleyball games, and football games. Was never into sports while in DAHS. I'm making up for it now. Jim's brother, Ricky Sinclair, is a pastor up in Madrid, N.Y. He and wife have 9 children! I've spent the last hour reading these web pages. You've done a great job. Would love to go to another reunion. Our 20th was a blast. Thanks for all your work Trina!

Elisa Nystrom - 1971 - (should have been 1971) - (bad e-mail 2003.03.27)- Port Charlotte, Florida - 2002.01.13
Looking for: All the "OLD" gang. You know who you are!
Memories: My most up-front memory is graduation day, wishing I could have been graduating with all my friends at DAHS. Friends that I had since I was in grade school, Laurel Lane and Northside. To mention a few Debbie Stebbins, Joanna Stewart, Jeri Gibson, Jimmy Stewart, Steven Geronimous, and also ones I knew in the start of DAHS Debbie Roberson, Teri Tripp, Audrey Backer and Ray Backer. And now my longest and dearest friend Rita Sherwood. Rita has been a loyal and dear friend through all my ups and downs without her who knows where I would be now. For the past 30 years we have lived no more than a few miles from each other and when I moved to Florida so did she. I call her sister when I refer to her because she couldn't be closer even if she was. I thank God for her every day. She always reminds me of some of the reasons why I left DAHS (asked to leave). Like going up to school and picking up all my friends and cutting out using my father's car to go driving around or to the beach. Who knows why kids do what they do as I have a 28 year old son of my own, who I sometimes wonder the same question about and I also have a 4 year old grandson. I remember Mr. Danube the science teacher - boy was he strange, and Mr. Anderson the math teacher being so laid back, Mr. Calderone - boy was he a pip and Good old Mr. Freud who transfered to MacArthur the same year I did. That was the best - he actually thought he was getting rid of me. Well when he saw me in the hall I thought he'd almost pass out. He dared me to graduate and graduate I did with a degree in Cosmetology. There are so many other things I remember the list is too long. But most of all It's you, The people and friends I knew. Love to you all and happiness and as they said in those days and should say again PEACE. Lisa Nystrom
Comments: Please Write I'd love to hear about all the things that have been going on in your lives. And if ever your in S.W. Florida stop by would love to see you. Rita lives about 4 blocks away from me. We would have a grand old time.

Memories: The DECA trip we took in our junior year. We got into trouble of course and got locked in our rooms when we were not supposed to be at some lecture or something. That was a big mistake, we had even more fun. Barbara and I were not ones to hang around too much in Levittown but we did make some good friends through our years there and would love to hear from anyone who remembers me.
Comments: Even though I did not hang around much in Levittown I married a fellow levittowner, Dean and I will be married 30 years this year. We have 2 kids Kristofer is 27 and Amy is 24.

in memoriam, Bruce Nystrom -1966 - by his sister Lisa - (bad e-mail 2003.03.27) - Port Charlotte, FL - 2002.01.29
Looking for: Any of his friends who remember him.
Memories: The memory that stands out most in my mind is upon graduation when shaking the principal's hand my brother Bruce buzzed him with one of those hand buzzers. I knew what he was going to do and had to promise not to tell our mother. Well I thought it was hysterical, not so with Mom when she found out. He had to go get his diploma from the principal's office. A few of his friends I do remember are Dwight Powers, Dennis Madison, Al Madison, Eddie Hellenbeck, Billy Flynn. Bruce was always a fun-loving spirit. He loved a good time and was a true friend to all who knew him. He passed away in 1970 after suffering from a broken neck sustained in a pool accident. He is survived by 2 Terrific Children and now one Granddaughter, our Mother and myself and my son and Grandson.
Comments: Thank you Dwight for remembering Bruce you were and still are a true and loving friend. I had thought he was forgotten by all but his family as his name had not been even mentioned in the graduating class list, as a Deceased member of the DAHS family, until I read one of your letters. I thank you with all my heart for remembering his life. I loved him dearly and always will as I now know other people do also. Thanks for easing my pain. Lisa Nystrom, Bruce's Little Sis.
Would love to hear from any of his old friends who have memories to tell. Can e-mail me at ___ or write to: Elisa Nystrom 477 Ricold Terrace, Port Charlotte, FL 33954. Will answer all, Thanks for the memories!

I went back and visited Levittown a while ago, and the memories that flooded in were just amazing I just drove around in a stupor thinking of riding bicycles with friends EVERYWHERE! Secret make-out areas like behind the shrubs at Northside school and inside the tunnels at Laurel Lane! Remembering the smell of summer, what ever happend to those trees?! The forts we built in the ditch, apple wars, acorn wars, skateboards (I am still riding slalom). Hopping pools, the sumps and the little toads that hatched behind the Azalea pool, the bike paths next to the parkway...

Robert Christiansen - - Chicago, IL - 2002.03.09
Memories: Being ridiculed, but Carol Hull, Susan Kelly and Jeanne Hunter were nice to me and said nice things to me shortly after my appearance as piano player at the '76 Variety Show. I stammered and I blushed, but I thanked them.
Comments: I am happy to say that I parlayed my piano-playing at the '76 Variety Show into a short-lived year-and-a-half (almost a year-and-three-quarters) part-time piano-playing career in a bar in Chicago from 5/2000 through 1/2002. And that I released a piano-playing CD in 2001 and have just recently released a live CD titled "The Rob Show live from Miami Beach." If you email me and request this CD, I will mail you a copy, just for asking.
Even though I am the "piano man" from Levittown, NY, I still hold down a full-time career at an insurance company.
I dedicated my 2001 CD to Patty Brown, my girlfriend in the second grade, but I never heard from her so I guess she never got wind of it.
If anybody knows how I can find Brian Connors (class of '77) can you let me know. He was a good friend for a couple of years.

Nancy Rydlewski (now Nancy Tighe) - 1976 - - Clinton, NJ - 2002.03.13
Memories: Good memories (mostly) of Sat. night parties at Andy Gottlieb's and Pat Lanotte's (sp?) houses. Fri./Sat. nights we used to go to the "Church" to hang out (and be chased away, probably due to the racket we were making). Saturday football games were fun. Playing hockey and just hanging out at Peggy Pergola's house is a fond memory. As I got into 10th & 11th grade, I really enjoyed getting to know other friends beyond those I'd always hung around with. The DAHS teachers were awesome. Mrs. Miranda was in a class of her own, Mr. Miller was a lot of fun and Mr. Erbacher deserves a medal for what we did to that poor man.
Comments: Andy & Jeanne Gottlieb and my sisters, told me of this site. It is great! Thank you so much for keeping this going. The memories from the yearbook volumes made me laugh and cry at the same time. Hey, class of '76 we are way under-represented in these volumes. Get those memories together (we're not that old yet!). I've been married to the same special man, Brian, for almost 21 years. In fact, he and I used to go to some of those parties I mentioned previously. I no longer blame him for going to Holy Trinity. We have two wonderful children, Meghan (age 16) and Brian Daniel (age 12). We moved around a bit after Levittown. Yorktown Heights, NY - Orlando - Clinton, NJ, but never miss the opportunity to ride around Levittown whenever we're in the neighborhood. It would be great to hear from old friends so please drop me an email. I hope to make the next reunion!

Looking for: Jeane Toale
Memories: I think out of all the grades we had it the worst. We lost friends of ours at a very early age. I don't know about any of you but something I especially will never forget. Rest In Peace Kevin. On an up side I think we were the closest grade to each other. I also think that's because of Mrs. Carroll she was the best person. She was like our other mother. Thanks for that Mrs. Carroll. From Dina Sarra

Memories: Hanging in the computer room. Secretly taking over some of the ID's. And everyone thought it was a computer problem.

Some people could not get on deliberately. I wonder how??? LOL!

Bowling team. Being the ONLY member of the 1981 Mens Swimming Team. Qualified for county, but got no where after that. But at least I started it!

Working on the junior prom. That was fun!
