Memories: DAHS was a wonderful time for me and brings back great memories. I could never forget all the classes I attended and the ones I skipped. Especially Dr. Hrach's AP English class where we all either there or cutting. The badminton team with wonderful coach Mrs. Freedman where Dawn Bolger and I won the all county championships for doubles. Who could ever forget Mrs. Andresakes and all of the Art classes I had with her, she was the best! Of course high school was more than just classes. Hanging out with friends, lunch at the pizza place and dances were also what made that time special. The senior prom was definitely the highlight of my years there. But what I remember most of all were the good freinds that I made, some I still see and some I have lost touch with. That is really what it was all about.

Alan Bradbard - 1971 - (bad e-mail 2004.05.15) - Tampa, FL - 2000.08.06 (new e-mail 2001.12.24)
Memories: Two of my favorite memories are from Mr. Cestaro's English class. We were reading Dante's Inferno over a several week period and we came across the 's' word on about page 150. Now Mr. Cestaro quite often read the passages out loud. Anticipation mounted for several days as Mr. Cestaro approached page 150. He approached the sentence and completed it with etc... etc... etc. The whole class busted up laughing. The second memory is Mr. Cestaro's habit of telling us to read silently and then leave the classroom for 5-10-15 minutes. Use your imagination as to what went on. I think Karen Sird was watching out for Mr. C. Suddenly Karen blurted out he's coming and everyone hurried back to their desk and looked like they were reading. Mr C. then pulled a portable tape recorder out of the desk drawer. He played it back in front of us laughing the entire time.
Comments: When you think life is tough, just remember Miss Gough's pop oral quizes.

Memories: The Exploits rock band appearing on Sonny Fox's "Just For Fun" TV show.
Senior lunchtime at LUM'S --- hot dogs steamed in beer.
Our senior movie: For Whom The Torch Burns. Now THAT was different.
Phys Ed with Howie Pivnick (not to mention the Track and Field team with him too).
Donkey Basketball, Prom with Sue Brown (sorry Mom, she wasn't really Jewish), making an 8mm movie called "Satan Takes The Wheel" as our Driver's Ed. final project (Starring Steve Krebs, brother Norm and I). Band with Placido Lutri. (No, we didn't cause his heart attack. I swear.) and Ernie Teichert. Frank Smith and Tom Purcell made sure we had a good time, and Mark Van Houten emptying his spit valve was quite a treat (NOT!). I remember counting the number of "ahs" our librarian, Mr Ayres, would say when he talked. I'm sure that it was because of his example that I too became a school, ah, librarian. Senor Creed, the Drew Carey of Spanish. And last, but not least, Mr. Murphy's pointing stick... Hail To Thee, Division Avenue!!!
Comments: If anybody has a copy of either of the Exploits 45 rpm records, or knows the whereabouts of "Satan Takes The Wheel", please let me know. (For Whom The Torch Burns has been found.)

Comments: I can't believe it has been nearly 35 years! It makes me almost feel old. HAHAHA. Love living upstate, moved up nearly 9 years ago. Even though I love small-town living, nothing compares to living in and growing up in Levittown. I don't think you can understand it unless you have lived it. I especially remember Blue Grass lane pool, the shopping center when Mays was the place to shop. Does anybody remember how wonderful it was at Christmas?? Just writing this makes me almost long for the days of Woolworth's and Whelan's drug store. Both of my sons went to DAHS. My brother still lives in the house that we grew up in. Talk about deep roots. Well so long for now. Please drop a line.

Deborah Randall (now Deborah Giordano) - 1987 - (bad e-mail 2004.10.07) - Setauket, Long Island - 2000.08.18
Memories: My favorite place to be was the auditorium... singing, dancing (not very well, but I tried) hanging out with the theater crowd.
I am now married (6yrs) to 1988 DAHS graduate Vinny Giordano. We have a wonderful 3 yr old son, Benjamin. Vinny is a manager for a local retail chain. I work full time as a loan officer for a Credit Union.
I am actually looking to quit working for an employer and become my own boss, as a financial manager for the general public. School never prepared kids for the real financial world. Home Economics is just not enough to get through life in today's world and the future graduates are in for a rude awaking.
I scaned through these pages and it brought back a lot of great memories. I hope to hear from those who remmber me or just recognize my name. My brothers graduated in 1984 - the Randall twins Mike & Jeff. Take care, be well and keep in touch.

Sue Failla (now Sue Failla-Duggan) - 1985 - (bad e-mail 2001.04.05) - Seaford, NY - 2000.08.18
Memories: I remember the sadness we all felt when we learned that Levittown Memorial would be closed in 1983. The sadness proved to be unwarranted because my last two years of high school at DAHS turned out to be two of the best years of my life. My memories include Friday night roller skating at the good old Levittown Roller-Rink (jr.-high), "Victory Parties" which occurred whether our teams won or lost, The Flame, working on the yearbook staff, Brigadoon, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, chorus, and what the members affectionately labelled, "Fag Choir." For those of you amongst the former Memorial crew, I will always remember Ms. Loonam and Mrs. Price and the "National... Junior... Hon-or Soc-ie-ty."
Comments: I was recently married (8/5/2000) to Dan Duggan, a dental student at SUNY Stony Brook. We were introduced by fellow-Divisionite Diana Backer (now Dr. Diana Backer) who met my hubby at a conference for dental students in Boston. After high school I went on to Hofstra University where I obtained a BBA in Finance and later an MBA in accounting. I've spent over ten years in commercial lending and I've been "doing the commuter thing" into Manhattan since 1993. I also spent some time in accounting to get my CPA, but accounting just wasn't for me. During my 20's I was fortunate enought to travel most of the Caribbean and I'm looking forward finally seeing Europe some day with my husband. My career and my personal life are just as I want them to be, and every day I thank God for all of my blessings which include my friends, my family, and my fond memories of DAHS.

My mom loves her students, close friends and family. I am sorry that I had to tell you all that she passed away and that she loves everyone. If anyone who knew Mrs. Maureen Drozd please tell them that she died and if there is any questions anyone would like to ask me feel free to contact me at my email. My mom is a wonderful lady and that she will be missed by everyone she loves.

The region is too crowded. If you're on the beaches after dark its a criminal act: but seagulls, terns, crabs, frogs, and snakes etc, are not so restricted! What is wrong with this picture? These creatures don't even pay taxes!!! When I was home on leave from RVN I got a $30.00 parking ticket at Ditch Plains on a rainy weekday morning. "F***" New York! I'd rather live here beneath my overhang shelter, scavenging for rodents and insects, and trying to last out another winter, than go back to the "Eastern Block".

Tom Anglim - 1981 - - Amsterdam, The Netherlands - 2000.08.30
Looking for: Old classmates
Comments: I have been living in Europe for the past six years, the last five in Amsterdam. I am still single, never married, working in the financial community since graduating college (Wall Street type stuff), traveled to a few places (this sounds like my first personal ad!), and overall life is good. Who among us in 1981, did not wonder what life would be like for ourselves in the year 2000? Think about it! I certainly would not have predicted my personal path would have led me to this point! I moved to Europe in 1995 for personal reasons (ex-girlfriend!) but I visit Levittown, where my younger brother Jon is a phys ed. teacher at Northside elementary school, and my older brother, Chris lived with his family until very recently. It is always special to come back to visit family and friends, see the old neighborhood and remember some special moments that can only be felt when you're home. I have not seen many of you in a very long time, but I am looking forward to attending our twenty-year reunion party.

Comments: Dear Class of 1969,
I reget to inform you that my wonderful brother Tom Martin passed away June 1st 2000 of lung cancer. He will be missed by many. My brother kept his crazy, funny sense of humor right to the end of his life. He also accepted the Lord before his death. I was happy to take care of him when he needed me the most. Tom left two beautiful children Shannon 14 and Sean 8.They both follow in his footsteps smart, funny, and athletic. Thank you for allowing me to share this news with you. May God bless the class of 1969. Donna

Robin Daskin - 1971 - - Mountain View, California - 2000.09.05
Memories: Mrs. Stillwaggon's chemistry classes.
Mr. Cacossa's drawing and painting class.
Mr. Peyton's metal shop class. The time I released nitric acid fumes by using concentrated nitric acid for a pickling solution instead of the dilute stuff.
Mr. Reynold's Madrigal Group.
Mr. DiFilippi's honors English class and the flack the parents gave the Honors English class for reading "Catch 22." Are they still such Neanderthals about what the students read?
Finishing my requirements for Sociology/Anthropology in Mr. O'Brien's class so I could spend the rest of the term in senior year (6th period) in the library reading science fiction books.

Big Al - 1997- NY (destination Wyoming) - 1999.11.06
Looking for: Anyone who graduated with me; anyone who wants to keep in touch
Memories: I knew the day would come when I would give anything just to be back in school for a day. Even though I couldn't stand the girls who would never shut up, always had a pound of makeup on, and were snotty. I couldn't stand the jocks, thinking they are the Second Coming or something. Ya had your skaters, and your wiggers too. For me, blue jeans and a t-shirt was fine, because I wasn't about to play Follow the Leader. But ya know I look back today and wish that I could experience one more class and one more walk down the hallway to see all these people again, even though I hated most of ya. I guess in time my hatred for you all turned into love. Why not, we live once. Good luck class of '97... every one of ya's. (Even the people I hated.)
Comments: Mr. Ginther, if you read this, thanks for the memories, you were one of the best teachers I've ever had, honestly. Because you taught me more about REAL life than molecules and cutting up frogs. Mr. Moss, if you read this, thanks also for the memories, I always respected you as a person, simply because you didn't take *@&@ from anyone. Mrs. Pinck, if you read this, thanks for never giving up on me in math. Mrs Pacifico, if you read this, thanks for the cooking memories. You always reminded me of my own mother, I guess that's why I liked ya so much. Mr. Hahn, if you read this, thanks for being a good teacher, you taught me a hell of a lot. Mr. Gallagher, probably the coolest of em' all...
Memories: One that sticks out the most is playing soccer. Even though we were one of the most pathetic teams out there in '97, we still had fun. I should've played football instead though. I would've been a real surprise to a lot of people at what I am capable of doing out on a football field. Hell, maybe you'll see me in the NFL one day. Until then... lata.

Have worked with Mentally Ill and now back to Developmentally Disabled adults. Just about to settle in CDA, Idaho. Love it here, would love to hear from you.

Steve Blumling - 1973 - (bad e-mail 2004.05.15) - Staten Island, NY - 2000.09.11
Memories: There are so many memories in such a big graduating class, while being in one place for six years - knowing many of my classmates even longer then that.
I remember all the good things and all the good people that were my classmates, teammates and associates in DAHS - lots of good memories.
I felt I haven't been a good friend over the years, as I haven't been very good at keeping in touch. I'm glad to have found out from my kid sister that this web site exists.

Memories: Everything I did with Joanne Quick!!! All legal but we laugh about it to this very day! Nancy Vogal you dodo bird where the hell are you? My honest apologies to Gerry Moskal, Lowell Miller and Kenny Ericson... Three men and a baby... (Me). The funny thing is that not one of them knows who I am or what I did... Does anyone remember the mooner who would drive by the school third period in our 11th yr? My favorite substitute teacher was Mr. Santiago... We would get away with murder. Barbara Steinberg should have received class sweetest!
Comments: I wish we had a memoriam so we would know who's no longer with us!

Richard Hopkins - 1982 (but I moved to California in 1980) - (bad e-mail 2003.03.27) - Venice, Ca - 2000.09.12
Comments: I'd like to say hello to all the friends I had when I lived in Levittown and attended DAHS. The memories of that I have of high school are all fond ones and I thank my friends for making it that way. I currently live in Venice, CA. It gets a little boring here 'cause the weather is pretty predictable, but I suffer through. I spent the last two years of high school in Santa Monica, Ca at SAMOHI where I graduated. I spent time in college but never finished (you could have guessed that one). Now things are great. I work in the sales field, have my own online company (selling swimsuits) and I am more active in sports than I ever was.
I would really like for you to contact me and say hi. It has been a real trip seeing the entries from classmates and hope each of you not yet registered are all doing well.
Bye for now. Go blue.

Comments: I would love to hear from former classmates and I'll try to answer all emails. I missed the 10-year reunion but I hope to make the 20-year, so it would be cool to start catching up now.

Looking for: Alan Contessa, Wendy Corbin, Susan Gallagher, Michael Grant, Patti Janssen, Doug Kurdziel, Margaret Massaro, Nilda Pacheco, Ceciela Velez, Paul Roberts, Donna Ronneburger, Edward Williams.
Memories: My memories of DAHS are very different from most. I wasn't popular, I was shy, I was skinny, and a real loner, I didn't have a clique of friends; as a matter of fact most of my friends went to Memorial. I was sent to DAHS because of zoning, and was upset because all the kids I grew up with from Wisdom Lane were gone, I had a difficult time making friends, but those I did make lasted in memory for all this time. Thanks for this great yearbook of memories. JYJ
Comments: I married in 1971, to a young man from Altanta Georgia, Dave Johnson, my best friend. He was stationed in Hampton Bays in the Coast Guard. We have been together for 29 years, we have 2 daughters, Jennifer, 23 and Jessica, 19. I have 2 grandchildren, Jacob 4 and Destiny 3 months. We live in Brooksville Florida, and have just built our dream home this last year. I am a therapeutic foster mother; I deal with children with emotional disabitlities from abuses in their families. I have been doing this for the past 10 years. I have now retired and am savoring the new relaxing time together with my husband in the woods of Brooksville.

Comments: My parents just sold their house in Levittown and everyone but Eric moved to Denver, CO this past July. I am married (not to the idiot from Island Trees) and have 2 children, Kevin age 4 and Shannon 5 months. I can't believe they finally decided to get going on the reunion and we just moved! Anyway, I saw Chris Hansen at the gym 1 time before I moved and he said we have like $10K for the reunion. I hope he really didn't buy a boat with it! Best wishes to all.

Comments: I did not graduate from Division, however I went to Summit Lane and Wisdom Lane with many of you. It's been so long so I figured I would sign up here and see if anyone who remembered me would like to catch up a little.

Lenny Catalano - 1971 - - Huntington Beach, Ca. - 2000.09.15
Looking for: Chuck Kilbride -- He still owes me money
Memories: Where to begin? I've been spending my whole life trying to get back to high school. No luck. Trying to get an education in a town that never slept was difficult, but it was beyond fun. Too much fun!
All the great sports teams in our class of '70-'71. County championships and near misses. Winning the '71 baseball county championship for Mr. Amen.
Having Mr. Kelly get us tickets at the "Fillmore East" in the Village at 15 and seeing groups like "Cream" or Seals & Crofts, Led Zeppelin & Grand Funk on the same card for like 2 bucks.
Seeing the older guys going to Vietnam -- and not coming back. Being at a Crosby, Still, Nash & Young concert at Randalls Island NJ the day Nixon resigned.
Trying to control Kenny Delaney when he had more than 2 beers. Cheap date! Lombardi jumping out the window on the second floor at Division, during class. I could go on and on. I'm reverting back to my childhood! (Time for therapy.)
Traveled a lot since then, but there was no place better. It was a great town, with great people. Am looking forward to coming back next year. Good luck to everybody.

I still see and talk to Laurie Fritzche, Tara Effinger, Bonnie Kessler and in touch with Donna DeStefano. Hope all are in good health. ENJOY!

Don Davis - 1968 - Newton, MA - 2000.09.18
Looking for: God. Just kidding. How about Jane Lavery?
Memories: Ah... er... um... The music - both the popular music of the times, and the great comraderie of all the bands in Levittown.

Memories: There were so many: going to football games on Saturday afternoons; basketball games Friday nights; Mr. Calderone getting his foot stuck in a wastepaper basket; going to Fiesta with Snipe (onion rings and a Coke please); being among about 50 other people at Fiesta the night the last show of "The Fugitive" (with David Jansen) was shown; parties, dances, it all was great. I have nothing but wonderful memories of growing up in Levittown. We were all so lucky.

in memoriam, Barbara Byrne - 1968 - (d. June 2, 1999) - by her sister MaryEllen - 2000.09.20
I regret to inform you that my dear sister Barbara Byrne (Demick) passed away on June 2, 1999 of breast cancer, only 9 months after diagnosis.
Although she lived in upstate New York the last 28 years of her life, she always remained interested in what was going on around Levittown.  Whenever we would reminisce of our high school days, it always brought a smile to her face.  Her spirit lives on in her three beautiful children, Stephanie 22, Stephen 20 and Colin, 17.  Her death was preceded by the passing of our oldest sister, Helen Byrne (class of 1964) on August 2, 1998 after a very lengthy illness.  Barbara had a wonderful time at your 20th reunion and spoke and laughed about it for weeks afterwards.  She remembered all of you fondly. - MaryEllen Byrne (Centrone) (class of 1969)

Donna DeSouza (now Donna Pambianchi) - 1979 - - Wantagh - 2000.09.20
Looking for: Marjorie Solferino's wicked laugh
Memories: Probably playing softball with my friends, and of course, Gina Fleming (yeah right). Marjorie and Smitty's car taking us out to lunch every day. Carla's awoogha horn. Maryanne with the juke box. Mrs. Pacifico's cherry powder pie and all the sabotage that went on in those kitchens. Live free or die! (Peter and George). Always scheming something with Regina, and surprised when we got away with it! And of course, the time that Sue M. told off Fleming!! We had too much fun!!
Comments: I haven't moved far, just one town away. I am married and have 2 children, Jaime (7) and Steven (4). I am a part-time teacher and a full-time mom. I enjoy every minute of it. I can't believe this much time has passed!! This is a great website, thanks for putting it all together.

Adam Wurtzel - 2003 - - Levittown - 2000.09.20 (new e-mail 2001.10.11)
Memories: Well, I'm still at Division! I am now in 10th grade and I'll be the class of 2003. At this point, my most fond memory is when I hosted "Who Wants To Win Spirit Week" for the school in 9th grade! Hopefully, "Who Wants To Win Spirit Week" will be back on the air this March!
Comments: So far, there have been some great teachers at Division that I have had! Mrs. McDonald and Mr. Winch are awesome Global Studies teachers! Ms. Stritzl will always be my favorite English teacher! And of course, Mr. Fresco for Biology is the best! But, the #1 person at Division at the time that I write this is Jeanie. Jeanie has been a hall monitor for DAHS ever since I came to Division. She is by far the nicest and most caring person in the building! Thanks Jeanie for all you have done for me!

my webpage:
Looking for: Anyone who remembers
Memories: Favorite memories include the great Lacrosse players I played with, and making it to the county championships for the first time in school history (we lost!). Playing in the jazz band, and Ernie Tiechert in general was a blast. Failing Spanish 1 with Miranda because I wasn't as good as my older sister, and then having to take it again sucked. Having my mother for a substitute teacher, and walking out of her class (she actually understood but was pissed anyway.)
Then there was the Friday nights in the bleachers, along the parkway with the guys. Lunch at Lums using my fake ID for a frosted schooner of beer with my beer boiled hot dogs and fries in a basket!
Comments: I just can't get over how many of us "old timers" actually know how to use these computers.
All the partying in those days prepared me for my current vocation - beverage broker! Now I work the metro NY/NJ/Pa area representing wineries, breweries, and distilleries from around the world and having a blast!

Memories: "The Post", The party after the Wantagh football game, Warren's parties, Kenny Mancino trying to look up Ms. Rothenberg's dress, being able to walk everywhere without a care. Friends. Jerry Jewel yelling at Russ Ratlif - in fact, Jerry yelling at everyone! Mr. Levy's class. The pools, hitch-hiking to Jones Beach field 4 with Brian McGrath.
Comments: This is a great web site! Like being in a candy store without the cals. Gee 30 years, "OUCH", went by in a blink. As I reflect on it now DAHS was like one big extended family. We all didn't get along all the the time but at the end of the day you were still part of the family.
I'm still on LI. Married 23 years, 3 kids (2 girls 1 boy), 2 dogs, 1 cat, 1 mortgage... all doing well.

Memories: Hanging out with the "BOYS" everywhere and anywhere. Regardless of where we were, we had good laughs! I'm still hangin with the same crowd, I welcome e-mails from anyone with an update or memory.
Bottle in the water meter box (while doing DeCaro's meatgrinders), All-nighters after winning the big game and sleeping under the scoreboard! Too many others to list...

Gene Aiello - Teacher & Administrator 1951-1981 - - Plano, Texas - 2000.09.27
Memories: All of them. My 30 years at Division Avenue were a tremendous experience. Getting to know the kids and helping them out were my greatest joys. The good times we had at games, the proms (the class of '73 named me Prom King, a wonderful surprise), and seeing the kids grow up are fond memories indeed. Thanks to Bonnie Antonowitz Ramsey for remembering me and searching for me. That's how I became aware of this Web site, which is great.
After retiring in 1981, my wife Dorothy and I moved to Orlando, Florida, and spent almost 20 years there playing golf and enjoying a life of leisure. Now in our early 80s and slowing down a bit, we decided this summer to move into an assisted-living home near my daughter and her family in Dallas. You may write to me at 3000 Midway Road Apt. 125, Plano TX 75093. I would love to hear from people. (added e-mail 2000.12.18)

Cindy Papale (now Cindy Hammontree) - 1972 - - Kendall, Florida - 2000.09.28
Memories: Although I moved from Levittown after my 11th grade year, I still have many fond memories of the years that I did live in Levittown. I went from Pintale Lane to Northside (especially field day at Northside when the Blue and Gold teams were at war) to DAHS. I especially remember the Levittown Roller Rink, the East Green Pool, shopping at Mays and Times Square Store, and eating at Woolworth's and Lums. My God, where has the time gone. I hope to try and make our 30-year reunion in 2002.
Comments: Would love to hear from anyone who remembers me.
