After having worked for Foster Wheeler for 20 years, my dad died. He and my mom had been living in Florida for many years and I decided to move to the Sunshine State temporarily to help out my mom. Well my temporary relocation turned into 28 years! I live in Bradenton which is between Tampa/St. Pete and Sarasota, and it only takes me 10 minutes to get to the beach. I’ve had a very diverse career which included piping estimator, kitchen designer, bookseller, customer service manager and adoption specialist in child welfare. I retired in 2012. (Yay!)
My life changed drastically in 2014. Two major surgeries on my neck and back left me partially disabled, but I’m very fortunate in that I’m able to stay extremely busy and as active as possible. I volunteer at a cat shelter and at “Our Daily Bread”, a soup kitchen. I enjoy book clubs and my trips to NJ in the fall and to Utah in the summer. I’ve only been on one cruise so far but I’m eagerly anticipating my next one. Also lunches and dinners out with friends and as many live music events as I can find. Life is good…!

Wolfson, Jeff ([email protected])
My journey from Livingston in 1968 has certainly been a “long and winding road.” I graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 1972 following four tumultuous years of political activation (remember the anti-war movement?), theater, and taking my place amongst the “Woodstock Generation” (yes, I WAS there). When I left Pittsburgh, my trail led through California, Virginia, Florida, Atlanta, back to Virginia and ultimately to central Pennsylvania. After I cut my hair, my working career somehow led me back to my roots in retail – where after “climbing the corporate ladder” in the chain drug industry, I again broke ranks and opened and operated my own health food store for two decades (much more rewarding than my corporate years). I sold the store and retired in April 2016, after 20 years-almost to the day. I met my (first and only) wife of 42 years in a hospital elevator in Richmond, Virginia in 1973 and we have one son, who became a Chiropractor in 2008 and now has a very successful practice in Philly. After a lifetime of not looking back, I am very excited once again to renew some high school connections! (And yes, I am STILL called Jeff-except for Medicare who insists I am actually Marc!) 40th Reunion attendee.(Last update 9/29/17) 40th Reunion attendee.
Now living mostly in the UK, spending 4-5 months a year in Provence, France. Working part-time as Chairman of a drug development company I co-founded when I “retired” in 2009. I still regard my senior year as an exchange student at LHS from New Zealand as a life-changing experience.. (Last update 1/23/18) 40th Reunion attendee.
(From Sandy Schantz)
Sometime in the late 1970s I went to visit Ashley with Ricky Kaufman. Ricky didn’t graduate from Livingston High but he went through the elementary school system and was my neighbor on Alcott Drive. Ricky remembered Ashley from school and wanted to see how he was doing considering his disability. Ashley lived with his sister in a really old house on North Livingston Avenue. His sister was really happy that someone would come and visit Ashley and thanked us for trying to show Ashley that people haven’t forgotten him regardless of his condition. I’ve got to admit that all the credit should go to Ricky. It also reminds me of the kindness and concern of the classmates who visited Jim Snyder.
(from David Gordon)
I didn’t graduate from Livingston high School; I moved away in 1964. I was a friend and neighbor of Ashley’s, but I knew him as Buttons. We played together often for years. He was a nice boy and I enjoyed his company. He lived in a big old house with his mother, his older brother and his younger sister. I believe her name is Claire Lynn. I have thought of Buttons from time to time in the years since I last saw him . I was saddened to hear of his death, much more than I would have expected. We all lose when any one of us leaves this earth.
