Fred Maten
Salesmanager americanvalvecenter.com Married 2 2021-09-24 23:40:57
Just so everyone who knew me in HS, attending the reunion knows who I am.  Many years ago when I was 5 years old, my step dad registered me in elementary school as Fred Snead and My dad, Fred Maten, objected to a legal name change.  My birth name Fred Steven Maten III eventually became my legal name wnen I registered with Social Security to begin my first job at CHCC Hillsdilly as a bus boy when I was 14.

I have been married for 42 years. My wife, Carol and I have a son, Paul, and a daughter, Lisa, and two grand children, Roman and Adrianna.  We have kived in Littleton for years and our kids grew up in a great neighborhood with many successful hard working parents and numerous kids.  I was the coach for various little league sports teams for my kids, until they went to Columbine HS.  No doubt those were the most exciting days of our lives.

I went to work full time after HS and was a part time student but soon realized that work was where it was at for me.  I have been working for domestic and foreign manufacturers of auto and heavy duty parts, equipment and tools since I was 22.

I retired for 90 days in 2018 but was recruited out to join a former product manager and president, that I worked with for years to help develop an aftermarket sales division for an OEM Manufacturer of automotive, heavy duty truck, and natural gas engine valves.

The enitre project came to a halt in May of 2020 when hundreds of our factory workers became infected with the virus.  11 people died.  At this point, we are at 75% production.

Unfortunately, my wife Carol is vunerable to COVID and for good reasons, refuses the vacine will not be attending the reunion with me.  I am fully vacinated and think that anyone who has had COVID has natural immunity and far better off than biotech made vaccine and masks don't work anyway... or do they?

psychologist mbogradphd@gmail.com Married 2 2021-09-24 21:10:31
I'm not able to make our reunion, much to my regret.  Many of you remain vivid figures in my memory from 50 years ago and the single reunion I attended reminded me of how lovely it is to meet people from back then, including those I didn't know--and to trace the arcs of our lives.  I've been in New Engand for over 40 years, am a psychologist in private practice.  Two children, 29 and 30, one on each coast--my greatest teachers.  Love exploration , high mountains, and adventure and have traveled and taught psychotherapy in many less developed countries.  Although immersed in work, my husband and I are beginning to eye retirement and the southwest exerts a strong pull--not only because i I still have extended family in Denver, but because it is my ecosystem, my heart home.  Headlines can't capture any of our complexities, of course, and would love to hear from those I knew.

I am an intentional interim pastor for the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.  My home base is AZ, where I moved to from Denver at the end of 1986, but I am currently serving a church in Virginia Beach  VA.   

I have 2 children and 6 grandchildren who are the joys of my life!  

I attended TJ from the 2nd semester of 10th grade through graduation.  I'm happy that I have stayed in touch with several of you over these past 50(!) years!   I was active in DECA, Atherfies and a member of the Yearbook Staff for senior year.

While it seems like a long time ago, and it is, I believe we aren't getting older... we are getting better!

retired Married 3 2021-09-10 16:02:53
Youth was a restless time. Went to University Park, Pitts, TJ, Manual and East. Graduated early and headed to Cornell, Antioch and Harvard. Ran out of money came home to Colorado and got two degrees at Boulder (Philosophy and Anthropology) .
Work has been similarly varied - neurosurgery tech, printer’s devil, weigh master on the railroad, drywall hanger, field archaeologist and systems analyst in the 70s and 80s. Left the corporate world and took a Phd in Geography at Minnesota and worked as a professor in the 90s. Then phased out of teaching and back to field archaeology in the 2000s and teens Worked in northern New Mexico largely studying Navajo origins. Happily retired now.
Proudest of my teaching: environmental science, geography, environmental ethics, and history for undergrads - philosophy of science, history of anthropology and philosophical foundations of ethics at the graduate level. Twenty years ago I married a woman with three teenagers who have grown to adulthood and are all doing well.
Life has been varied and rich and good for me and mine. I feel very fortunate to have had the privilege and comfort and security of being a boomer, growing up when and where and how we did.

Let's see ....... I was trained as a scientist (Ph.D. in Physiology and Biophysics) and except for a 6-year foray into investment banking/hedge fund management, I spent my career as a pharmaceutical executive.  I was fortunate to retire at 48 as Chief Scientific Officer of a biotechnology company and explore my interests in sculpting, designing jewelry, writing (short stories, screenplays, novels), traveling, cycling, swimming and skiing.  Along the way I managed to accumulate three daughters, three granddaughters and one wife!

Rich Stevens
Accounting Consultant Divorced 2 2021-09-22 20:57:23
What a long strange trip it's been. When I last walked the halls at TJ, my hair was thick and my tummy thin. Now, never mind. After graduation, I got a degree in accounting from CU Boulder and have spent my entire career in that field. I am the proud father of 2 amazing daughters. My oldest (23) we adopted from China and my youngest (21) came along as a wonderful surprise. I became a father rather late in life and would not give that up for the world.

Wow!  50 years since 6 years at TJ.  I liked Mr. Day's gym class where I always went barefoot to his disgust.  I met my fantastic wife Lorie in Boulder in 1971, lost track of her for ten years then randomly and amazingly got in line behind her in a grocery store.  BSA Lightning for college trans.  Married 41 years with two great kids.  Had two interesting careers, one in energy exploration and a long one as a nonprofit executive. Last 14 years with the CU Medical School.  Retired two years ago to concentrate on fun, travel and very rewarding service with an all-volunteer search and rescue organization in western Colorado.  Life is great.         Send Randall "Randy" a MessageSend Randall "Randy" a Message
