Mondro, and football coach, Mr. Jerry Raymond, were surrogate father figures to him as his parents divorced when he was in 9th grade. HPHS taught him so many things about getting along in life that he has truly carried with him. After giving up his college draft deferment and volunteering to join the army, Charlie flunked the physical and ended up “dropping out” and doing the hippie thing for about 10 years. During this time he met a little “hippie chick” in San Francisco and brought her home to Highland Park to meet his mom – who loved Barb immediately. Charlie has been married to Barbara Ann for 40 years. They have two children: Cassady Ann (1978) and Benjamin Allyn (1983). Charlie is trying to decide on a retirement date from a career in Nursing that has been tremendously fulfilling and satisfying for him.

THANK YOU The 2011 “50-ish Reunion” Planning Committee would like to thank everyone for participating in order to make this 3-day weekend a happy, memorable occasion and a great success! We extend a sincere apology for any errors, omissions or oversights in this Commemorative Booklet. Every effort has been made to ensure that the information is correct. We included as many of the Classmates’ Profiles that were available at the time of printing. You will notice that most Profiles are short in length; this was done so that we could squeeze as many as possible into the class year sections; however, for more detailed information, the longer version of some Profiles may be found at the website. We would like to stay in touch with all Classmates, Teachers and Guests as the years go forward. In that regard, we would appreciate any and all updates and photos to be posted on the website at www.classcreator.com/Highland-Park-MI-1959-1963/ to report on Classmates that are located, good news, retirement news, announcements, more school stories and any Classmates that have passed on so that the website may be kept up to date as much as possible. We thank each and every one of you in advance for your participation and assistance.
This book is dedicated to the loving memory of those Parkers that have passed on – we miss you.

WHITNEY, ROBERT (Jan ’62) 1S420 Cantigny Dr., Winfield, IL 60190 630‐231‐0320 email@example.com Robert earned his degree in Math from Wayne State and while doing so, started in the computer field, working for the University’s Computer Center in ’64. He moved to Buffalo, NY in ‘66 to work for Bell Aerospace. While working there, he started taking classes which lead him to a PHD in Computer Science, but he switched after a couple of years and spent 3 years getting an MBA in night school. In 1972, he moved back to Plymouth, MI and went to work for Burroughs (now Unisys), where they moved him in ‘82 to a software development facility in suburban Philadelphia to help manage development of their Enterprise Planning System. In ’85, he left Burroughs and formed his own company, initially to manage implementations and provide training on the Burroughs/Unisys system. Eventually, that expanded into providing the same implementation and training services on several other ERP packages. As time went on, he added change management to the services he offered and started helping companies adjust to the new software packages they were implementing. In ’92, a Chicago client convinced him to work for his company as a Systems Director and a Materials/Logistics Director, which lasted for several years until the company was sold. Over the years, he has added small business profitability consulting to his service list and has been doing both implementation/training and small business work ever since. He is slowly cutting back his involvement, some by choice and some by economic factors. WINGATE, CATHY (Jun ’62) firstname.lastname@example.org Cathy is an institutional investment advisor. She attended U of M but dropped out in her senior year to work on Wall Street. She graduated from Michigan in 1976 (B.A.) while living in Boston by earning remaining credits at a college there. She graduated from The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 1982 (M.B.A.) and worked in investment banking or portfolio management until creating a partial retirement in 1998. She’s worked and lived in New York City, Boston, London and Los Angeles/San Francisco but thinks the wanderlust that afflicted her as a child in the Midwest has abated considerably, if not exactly been fully sated. Since 1998, Cathy has been mostly active in sailing‐ or nature‐related volunteer work and she now lives in the Fort Lauderdale area so that she can sail year‐round on the lovely Gulf Stream. According to her brother, she grew up wanting to run away to sea and be a pirate on the Great Lakes. She clearly remembers that desire but trust that that was more evidence of innate sea‐ and wanderlust than an early indication of felonious tendencies. Whatever the origin, she’s had a lifelong love of the water and has lived on one ocean or the other since college, not counting time lived in London. She learned to sail in the '80s while living in New York City after watching the '76 Bicentennial tall ship event and being enchanted by the barkentines, brigantines and all the lovely sails! Cathy now mostly sails and races on smaller sloops out of Lighthouse Point and Biscayne Bay and does longer sails from Florida to New England, when possible. She volunteer‐teaches sailing and marlinspike stuff (knots, nomenclature, etc.) for the local sailing club and at public events on tall ships.
