Fred McFarland - 1987 - - Levittown - 2001.04.03
Looking for: K.C. Heffernan
Memories: All of the musical performances that I was in with all of my friends. It's funny how we cannot wait to graduate from High School, but once we are out, how much we long to be BACK IN.
Comments: I think that High School Reunions are the best thing. I had soooo much fun at our 10 year reunion. Seeing people that I have not seen in such a long time brought back a lot of good memories. I wish that we did not have to wait so long to see each other. I miss all of you a lot and hope that we can start to communicate again.
If it weren't for Billy Linn I would not have known about this web site. (I work with him) We should try to get more of our classmates involved with this web site. To me we we're not the class of 1987, but the FAMILY of 1987. Thanks for the time because, THESE ARE THE TIMES TO REMEMBER FOR THEY WILL NOT LAST FOR EVER. Feel free to email me at any time and keep me updated on upcoming events.

Wendy Clark - 1971 - - - (bad e-mail 2003.05.04) - Irvine, Ca. - 2001.04.03
What a great club that was - just the beginning of "earth days" caring about the environment, etc. Mr. Levy - where are you??
The Canteen - a great place to hide, and a great place to make more friends.
Working on the yearbook - an honor and a privledge.
The senior variety show. Such a fun few nights!
knowing the Lanfears - where are they now? Great teachers and human beings.
Comments: Will try hard to get to N.Y. in July. Thanks for your dilligence in putting everyone together - you're teriffic!!!

Anthony Russo - 1981 - South Windsor, CT - 2001.04.05 - - 2004.12.26
Memories: So many to list, not enough time. Simat, Bagley and Nelson parties. Hoops with Mr. Krug (did he really think he was Dan Tana?), Integrated Studies with Mr. Goelz and Mr. Cestaro, Friday PM basketball at Northside, good friends, P. Carew, C. Gallagher-Carew, Criesi, J. Bagley, M. Munnelly-Bagley, Tommy O. & Nancy, T. Moore. The girls from the class of '82, Sue D., Sue C., Krissy K. Good hearts and good people. Breakfast runs in Mike Bloom's car. McDonald's. The Senior Variety Show. If I'd only known then what I know now!!!
Comments: Hearing about Mr. Reggio's death saddens me. I will always remember his science class with the class of '79 blaring Marshall Tucker and Boston from the senior lounge. He never got flustered. His favorite saying from what I recall from some 20 years ago was, "ferinky dink!!" I believe it was his way of saying, "for instance!". He will be missed.
Anyway, life has been fun and pretty good for the last 20 years. I can't wait until the 20th reunion this Aug. It will be great seeing people I haven't seen since the 10 year reunion or even since high school.
Regards to all and Best wishes for succes and happiness.

Looking for: Margie Cianci, Sherri and Diane, Bernardi, Cortez
Comments: Old friends continue to circle round the wagons -- many of us from the class of '69 are taking advantage of seeing our old friends in the class of '66 -- we'll be out in the parking lot releasing emergency brakes and pushing cars around... well wait -- we're a tad older now -- maybe you'll just find us at the bar. Tried to talk Carol in to coming but she's home suffering with a pulled thigh muscle and won't even discuss it... crashing the class of 66's reunion OR how she pulled that muscle... but from what I gather, it had something to do with riding an elephant and her sneezing --- she is one gal that needs to find new work!!!... Anyone know where Jackie and Linda Eydler from Blacksmith Rd. are?... don't remember the spelling for sure--- if Rusty Arneson, our old paperboy sees this -- i returned to Blacksmith Rd. and passed the Chin's house - they're no doubt gone but it is STILL an ORIGINAL Levit home - complete with the vent in the kitchen and the horse and buggy on the house - it was wild. Rusty - you had the COOLEST dog.

Looking for: Danny Morales, Mike Cocarro, Eric Salfeety, Stewey Grant, Vinny Tomasulo and any of the other footballers of '69
Comments: Still having grand thoughts of the reunion in Oct. 2000 which was an evening that ended far to soon. Sorry that a lot of the "69ers" didn't attend, it was a blast from the past and I got a recharge that will probably keep me runnin' til the next one.
Please allow me to wax philosophic as we have passed the first half century of our lives; a great writer once said that by the time one turns 50 we get the face we deserve. Well noble classmates, look into the mirror -- do you deserve that face? Comments appreciated.
All the best, Monk

Memories: Getting a ticket (my first) for going through a red light bringing a bunch of us back from Manhattan where we'd filmed the first version of For Whom the Torch Burns. My folks didn't know I had taken their car all the way into the City - thought I'd just taken it to the LIRR station in Hicksville. I think one of the Hallets (Norm?) was in the car and maybe Kevin Byrne, and Anne Barash. Anne drove me back to appear in court to pay the fine, after we'd arranged to do something (highly illegal, no doubt) to get me out of class. I had a "starring??!!" role in that version, but alas, as fate would have it, the truck bearing the film to Rochester for developing the film was stolen. (I still have the NY Times article describing the theft.) My potential career in Hollywood was thwarted as I wasn't available when the scenes were re-shot.
To summarize the past (shudder) 35 years: Graduated Syracuse Univ. '71 (after marching on Washington, etc. etc.) with BS in Nursing, moved to Boston; worked as a psych RN in various settings including getting MS in Psych-Mental Health Nursing in '77 at Boston Univ. Involved in Union and Democratic Party activities. Been to Greece, USSR, UK, the Caribbean. Bought the condo I still live in in '83; bought a house on Martha's Vineyard in '93 (which I rent by the week in the summer if anyone's interested) Semi-retired from nursing '97 (working in health care is unbearable these days) and started a small antique and crafts business.

Comments: I was a late bloomer, didn't get smart until the age of thirty and hit my physical prime in my forties. When I was a kid I was weak and skinny, now 40 years latter I do all the things a kid can do and am in great physical shape. I am a total outdoors person, camp, hike, ski, explore, jog (10 miles per day), play ball whenever I can and ride one of my six horses at least 20 to 30 hours per week. More energy than time. Most of my friends nowdays are much younger, the ones my age have become couch potatoes. Life has been great, have and done everything.

- Diplomacy and the Utopia project. Mr. Wieczerzak may have been a little odd, but you had to love his class. Trials? Tribulations?...
- Mike Inger pretending he was like Michael Knight or something, and getting his car airborne over the hump at Newbridge Rd.
- Seven or eight people in a car meant for five on the way to McDonald's for lunch...
Comments: I'm currently an aerospace engineer working at Pratt & Whitney in East Hartford, CT. I develop software for jet engine noise prediction, which is another way of saying that I sit in front of a computer all day and slowly get fat! :)

Comments: I noticed that some of our missing classmates are listed on
Kind of strange to think back to high school! A lot has happened since '65 some good some not so good. I haven't lived on the Island since '73, but I was back there for a day in April of '85. It truly seemed magical as I drove around. Trees made tunnels of some of my familiar roads.

William Carnes - 1966 - (bad e-mail 2004.10.07) - Santa Rosa, CA. - 2001.06.16
Memories: In looking through the comments from other alumni I noticed a number of comments and stories about Bunny Goldstein. I would like to set the record straight on the time of his death. Bunny died in December of 1972. He lived a self-fullfilling prophesy. I lived with Bunny in Westbury, just before he met the love of his life. A women named Mary Galvin. Mary moved to Los Angles in 1972. Bunny missed her so much he packed up and followed her. All of you who knew Bunny well know that he was a little different. He had a zest for life and a positive attitude about all. We all have crazy stories about Bunny. The way he lived is the way he died.
In december of 1972 Bunny was at a bar. He had driven his motorcycle there. At sometime that evening he got into a dispute with someone who then took Bunny's bike. Bunny went after him in a friends car. What happened next was just a tragedy. A drunk driver ran a red light and slammed into Bunny's car. He died instantly.
I can still see that great sly smile he had. We have missed him dearly. He was a free soul and a great friend. Play the Blues

Comments: Wow! The years have really flown by! I would love to see many of you at a reunion some time. I am sure that your lives have taken many "twists and turns", even as mine has! Who would have thought that I would have become a minister, living in New Mexico, married with four children? YIKES! God sure moves in mysterious ways! God bless!

Barbara D'Ambrosio (now Barbara D'Ambrosio Salvesen) - 1970 - (bad e-mail 2004.05.15) - Levittown, NY - 2001.06.21
We married in 1972 and still together, who knew?... Both sons graduated from DAHS, Bob in 1994 and Craig in 1996... they both are on their own, so it's back to the two of us... We have contacted a number of people and even had our "own reunion" in Florida with Barbara's best buddy in high school, Donna Ferrari Davis and her wonderful husband, Glenn last fall... Looking forward to another "mini" reunion this fall since every year we fly down to Miami during football season to watch the Miami Dolphins play... (The Dolphins are Bob's #1 passion, Barbara's a close 2nd)... If anyone remembers us and cares to drop a line we'd love to chat a bit... (since we have no life anyway)... Regards to all...

Comments: Since high school I have gone on to complete my dream, as well as someone else's. I am currently a two-time Egg Donor and plan to donate again this fall. As a result of my first donation, someone who has dreamt of having a family and has battled many obstacles for many years, will soon be having that become a reality as she is due to deliver in mid-November.

For more information on how you too can help an infertile or same-sex couple, please contact your local fertility clinic or email me for information.

I have an amazing son of my own as well. Christian entered the world in February of 1996 and will be entering kindergarten this September and then he is off to first grade, possibly at the Long Island School for the Gifted if I move back to Nassau County.

Colleen Drozd - 1996 - - Levittown, LI, NY - 2001.06.23
Memories: There was a lot of HS memories; I am so sorry that we couldn't do any actitivities like having a car wash to raise money. There was a lot. I did achieve on my own the gold award in the girl scouting. I just want to tell you all that I have changed a lot. I now drive a 4-door SUV. I have been working out a lot and taking 2 walks one on the lunch break and other walking the dog. I have been bowling and have a good average. I hope there is a 10-year reunion in 2006. I miss Rosina who died in our sophomore year in hs. Hope all is well and take care.

Memories: Mr Amen. / Mr. Calderone as he stepped into the waste basket while teaching class. / Spitballs at Miss Gough's blackboard (when she snapped, it was like visiting Hell. There was something enjoyable about ruffling her feathers. :} Listening to 'Dr. Danubes' grand postulations and personalized pronunciation of words such as 'stomatch' & 'doowadeenum' as he strolled out the classroom door, book in hand (open as a preacher's at sermon) gesturing with his free hand as though orchestrating the heavens, anointed the hallway, then strolled back in. What A Ham! :} / And of course Gym. (I'm such a jock :} Get a chance to be exposed to Mr. Amen maybe. A special man. The most significant exposure of my life. Gotta love him.
Comments: I spent not much time at DAHS, but for those of us that shared, (especially those I came through Summit Lane with) Those times were the most meaningful, the most real, the most fun. Would love to be able to go back & do it a number of times :} Thank you

Alan S. Goldstein - 1962 - Apopka, Florida - 2001.06.27
Memories: Technical Electronics 1, 2, and 3 with Mr. Gerrity, Mr. Black and Mr. Fields; Mr. Chapman's juicy footnotes; the great bunch of guys and girls in the class of '62. For the life of me, however, I can't remember what Mr. Reggio ("good bye jake") told us to come back and tell him. To this date, after all I've done and seen in my 57 years, my senior year at DAHS remains the best year of my life.
