“Keeping in touch with Brothers Bob Bellis and Sam Rodgers with an occasional shout to Ted Junker as often as possible.

Ted and Bob at PSU, Sam, by phone. As a former NY Jet, attending functions such as honoring former teammates inducted into the Ring of Honor at Met Life Stadium and going to the Jets training camp keeps me connected to the organization.

Like so many other things, the group keeps getting smaller. Going back for the annual football letterman golf tourney keeps me abreast of what's going on with former teammates. Reading about some of my Alumni Brothers and remembering the party room in the Old Red Barn plus the Miami Triad weekend with Phi Delt and Beta with the Friday night party at our place. Jamming at Phi Delt and formal at Beta were the best of times.

Remembering sitting in front of the fire place in the Barn exchanging gifts with an appropriate poem about the person and looking out at the street light on the corner next to Phi Gamm with snow falling? Never fails to make me mellow and put a grin on my face.

Remember sun bathing on the roof? Water bombs dropped from the upstairs window! Rec hall, Beaver Stadium, Schwab, the mall, the library, Old Main classes, the Hub. All in easy walking distance!

Hell week and the final quest for the White Cross, plus agonizing over the grilling by some ya moh who you never saw before and then initiation. How about spaghetti and beer rush parties? Helen Liamun, Pearl? Sleeping dorm-style with the windows wide open? Spud Nuts on Saturday, Helens grease-laden eggs? Late meals, wearing the same shirt, tie, and coat for evening meals. Favorites having their special table?

These are just a few thoughts that helped make college such a great time.”

“I graduated Penn State in 1988. I live in Belvedere, CA. I am retired but keep myself busy with a small marina in Sausalito, CA named Blue Water Yacht Harbor, which I own, and with sailing on San Francisco Bay.

I have been married for 21 years to my wife, Carol. We have two sons Nicholas, senior in high school, and Benjamin, a 7th Grader.

All is well here in CA. Haven’t been back to State College in almost 10 years. Really need to get back there. I have seen Rob Blair, Doug Farber, Bryan Dean, and Keith Olivia over the last year. They are all doing well.”
