Interior Design Consultant terriesharp@gmail.com Married 3

Married Roger Sharp [Highland class of '68]
39 years ago.  After U of U and graduate school in the Northwest we settled in Salt Lake City to raise our three children. Seems like a roller coaster ride of challenges and joys. Anxiously awaiting the arrival of our second grandchild in Dec.  I have always loved 'nesting' and all it entails.  Still enjoy work as a free lance interior design consultant.  Teaching a variety of adult church classes over the years has resulted in a lot of introspection and spiritual growth.  Two years ago Rog took the Arizona State Bar Exam.  We now divide our time working and living  between the two states.  Memories of Skyline are mostly vague, however I do enjoy a secret smile when certain music from the 60's materializes.  Looking forward to the reunion.  September seems like the perfect time  - autumn days , crisp nights, rekindling friendships neglected over the summer.....'til then....Terrie

Rex Heinke
Lawyer www.akingump.com/rheinke/ Married 2 Mrs. Sylvester (Debate) Lawyer Unfortunately was not able to spend my senior year at Skyline because my family moved to California after our junior year. Was in high school there only five months when we moved to South Africa because of my father's job. Graduated from the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg. Then went to Columbia Law School and afterward clerked for a federal judge in New Orleans. Since then have worked as a lawyer in Los Angeles. Married to my law school classmate and best friend: Margaret Nagle (a federal Magistrate Judge). Have two kids (boy and girl) both at Claremont McKenna College (junior and freshman) and a great dog. Not enough and there has been plenty of time. Very sorry I wouldn't be able to attend the reunion because I just learned about it. Hope you all have a great time. Looked through our junior year yearbook. It brought back many wonderful memories.

Endangered Species Recovery Coordinator Married 2 Donald Ripplinger is #1. #2 is the English teacher who accused me of plagiarism, which resulted in my refusal to ever write another paper for her -- that's when I learned to just say no. Dishwasher, janitor, waitress, holly picker, house designer, landscape architect, and for the past 29 years, endangered species specialist Cambridge, MA, has been my home since 1981. I got here via Cache Valley and Albuquerque. I married Drew ('66 student body pres of Bountiful H.S.,wild man, and Craig Parkin's cousin) in 1974. Drew's the greatest and I'm glad he's still around. He had an aortic aneurysm in 2006 and survived by a hair -- the day it happened I had to get home from West Virgina and if anyone is interested in possibly the all-time worst airport story, let me know. We have two unique kids, Rachel and John. Rachel, 23, started life as a reading prodigy (taught herself to read at 18 mos. and was reading books like the Lord of the Rings trilogy by age 5; we just watched, astounded). She graduated from George Washington Univ. in creative writing (poetry). During her junior year she enlisted in the Army Reserves, making it through boot camp and a year of duty before having a near-fatal car accident. Her boyfriend, a Marine, proposed to her while she was in intensive care, and last spring they were married in my mother's backyard in SLC. They live in NC, where he's stationed at Camp LeJeune and Rachel is a layout/copy editor and the book/movie reviewer for the Jacksonville Daily News. Our son, John, 20, is the best communicator and most poised person I've ever known, despite multiple disabilities; he can't talk or read and has had over 20 operations in order to stay marginally ambulatory. Our plan is to return to Utah after retirement so that John can be near his extended family. Meanwhile, he goes to high school in Cambridge and enjoys adaptive skiing and sailing, and he's traveled the world with us (even camping in the Arctic!). Other current members of our household include a hamster named Twitchy and a disabled cattle dog from Utah; Toby uses a wheelchair and we take a daily walk at a nearby pond. Although we moved to Cambridge for my job rather than school, Drew did his graduate work at MIT and I spent a year studying conservation biology at Harvard. Drew works on river and forest conservation issues, and I work for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to protect all sorts of endangered critters, from isopods to shrews to louseworts to lynxes. I'm currently working on wolf recovery with a nationwide team, advising marine biologists about coral recovery in the Caribbean, and teaching at the National Conservation Training Center. The government has generously allowed me to work out of my home most of the time, so I'm able to balance work and family. I started running marathons at age 50 and have run 11 since. We spend a lot of time on the water, and I get to the mountains and deserts as often as possible. OK. That's more than enough. I've enjoyed the profiles of all those who've contributed to this site, and I look forward to the upcoming alignment of past and present! Don't worry, be happy. And never give up.
I'm hoping that someone, anyone, who was in concert choir and still has a recording of our  '68 concerts will clue me in about how to get a copy (my album cracked).

Homemaker Married 10 Mr. Ripplinger taught me many important skills that helped me in college as I struggled to get my Bachelors of Music degree. He inspired me to put my heart into my music, and not to accept anything less than my best. I have been able to stay at home raising my children for the last 34 years. My youngest son is 12 years old. I have enjoyed helping each of them grow up. My oldest 4 are married and having their own children. I have been able to enjoy my grandchildren, too. A smile can work wonders. Being a friend to someone new makes you both happier. Having self-esteem is a gift to be valued. Give it to anyone who needs it. It's priceless though it doesn't cost a penny. The best way to "save money" is not to spend it. The best way to stay healthy is to keep going. Children are a blessing that will enrich my life forever.
Married 35 years.  Husband: Samuel E. Job - College Librarian
Children: Julianne, Samuel Stephen, Marianne, JennyLyn, Jeremiah, Evelyn, Daniel, David, Jonathan and Jimmy.
Grandchildren: Andrew, Ashley, Alexia, Austyn and Adalyn Williams;
Madelyn, Hyrum, Joshua and Sarah Job; Anna, Robert and Melissa Mays; Ammon Taft

Most vivid memory of high school: Singing with the Concert Choir and feeling the beauty of the music.

Married 1
As most of you who remember me will recall, I didn’t exactly graduate from Skyline High School. After two years at Wasatch Junior High, I was a member of the first Freshman Class to ever attend Skyline (1964-65). After three fantastic years as an Eagle, my family moved to California in 1967, so I missed out on my senior year here. Still, I’ll never forget when we won Skyline’s first State Championship in a major sport (Track & Field, 1967), and rejoiced again when the Seniors won State in football in 1968!
Since college, I have worked in the Southern California aerospace industry – Hughes Helicopters, Hughes Aircraft Company, and Raytheon. Not only did my work provide me with great benefits and finances for my other reckless pursuits, it also afforded me the opportunity to travel. I lived for a couple of years in Penang, Malaysia, a couple more on the Keflavik Naval Air Station, Iceland, and spent several months working outside of Lisbon, Portugal. I took full advantage of these assignments, and saw as much of the outlying regions as possible. Travel – the more remote, the better – is still a high priority on my list.
My wife Neva and I have been married for 20 years, and she has been my best friend since the day I met her. I have a daughter Cindy by a prior marriage, and I have a couple of granddaughters.
I have always had a passion for running. I’ll never forget the night I received my Letter for Cross Country at the Skyline Lettermen’s Club. Since then, I’ve racked up some pretty good numbers. In addition to a ton of shorter races, I just completed my 69th marathon (“Rapa Nui” marathon, on Easter Island). Other marathons I’ve completed include the Great Wall (China), Kilimanjaro (Tanzania), White Nights (St. Petersburg, Russia), Reykjavik and Lake Myvatn (Iceland), Kuala Lumpur and Penang (Malaysia), Einstein (Germany), Paris, and Lisbon. I have run all 23 Los Angeles Marathons, dating back to 1986, and have run Boston as a time-qualified runner three times. (Neva politely points out that she has five Boston Finisher’s medals!) I’ve run marathons on five continents, and my goal is to complete one on the two remaining ones – Australia and Antarctica – before I’m sixty. Just so you don’t think I’ve lost the “wild and crazy” side most of you remember, we’re also life-long members of the Hash House Harriers, an international running organization whose motto is “We’re a beer drinking club with a running problem!”
I owe several Skyline teachers a huge “thank you” for providing positive direction for some of my pursuits, which directly influenced the course of my entire life. Thanks to Mr. Bird for teaching me how to read music and perform in cooperation with other musicians to create such beauty in that media. Thanks to Mrs. Johnson (English), who challenged me to sharpen my writing skills and critical thinking; today I hold degrees in English Literature (UCLA) and Secondary English Education (U. of Wyoming). A very special thanks to Coach Hathaway, for channelling my love of running into a disciplined and competitive avocation. I never lost that thrill and now have literally run all over the world. Our home is adorned with a host of running awards (mostly Neva’s) and memorabilia. I met Neva because of our shared passion for running, and we even had our wedding ceremony at the end of a run! Thanks, Coach! 
Finally, a big global “thanks” to the entire staff at Skyline – we all owe so much for your putting up with us little angels over those years, and giving us a quality education in spite of everything! I hope that you can now look at the results of your efforts, smile, and consider it to be a “job well done.”

Judge Married 8
September 29, 2008
Life has been extraordinary since graduation.  I completed BA at U of U in English, law degree University of Arizona in 1978.  Practiced in southern Arizona for 20 years, mostly civil litigation in personal injury, wrongful death, product liability.  Served as mission president for Portugal Lisbon South Mission (including Cape Verde Islands, West Africa).  My wife Diana and I had two wonderful daughters, Marianne and Martha.  Diana died in 1995.  Martha is a terrific mom, living in Orem.  Marianne has a child and lives in Alexandria, Virginia.  She managed a non-profit in DC focused on campaign finance reform, brokering the bill through congress, and defending it through the courts.  Her husband James heads the State Department’s Corporate Social Responsibility office, as well as International Labor.
I married Jeri Curtis, who had 6 kids, and I moved from Tucson to Safford, Arizona.  Safford is famous for President Spencer W. Kimball, world famous binocular telescope on Mt. Graham, copper mining, cotton, Gila River, and nearby Aravaipa Canyon. 
I was elected Superior Court Judge in 1998, and have been presiding judge since that time.  It is a general jurisdiction court, and mostly criminal felonies, domestic and civil litigation.  I enjoy the variety, and the chance to contribute to child protection and family peace.  I have handled at least 3,000 felony filings, 1,000 petitions to revoke probation, about 1,000 divorces and dozens of trials.  I also oversee commercial, contract, personal injury and medical malpractice cases, and sometimes travel to adjacent Arizona counties as a conflict judge.  I serve on Arizona Judicial Council.
Jeri and I have 18 grandchildren between us, and much of our time, like yours, is devoted to our grandchildren.. We are raising one of them, so I am a full time soccer, cub scout and piano practice grandpa.  I wouldn’t have it any other way.  We have five acres in Safford, with cows and horses.  Jeri has a quilting machine with a computer on it and turns out beautiful quilts.
For fun, I return to Brazil or Africa every few years and re-immerse myself in missionary work, going on splits with elders of the LDS Church, teaching, encouraging and explaining my beliefs in Christ.  I have many Portuguese speaking friends on three continents with whom I maintain contact.  This has been a great highlight of my life since my service in Brazil as a missionary in 1970-71.  I have taught missionary preparation for 10 years at Thatcher Institute, and currently teach Old Testament in BYU Continuing Ed for adults.  We are thrilled at the announcement of a Gila Valley Temple, to be built here in 2009. 
It is amazing to see that all of us are much older, mostly wiser, and generally content with what life has offered us.  I am grateful to all of you who added so much friendship and many good examples at Skyline.  God bless you all.


Before September 29, 2008
Life has been extraordinary.  God has blessed my family abundantly.  I had two wonderful daughters with Diana Bird from Highland High, who died after we came home from a mission in Porgtual in 1995.     I then married Jeri Curtis, and gained 6 more kids. We now have 18 grandchildren between us.  My favorite activity is being with them.  Between missions in Africa, Brazil and Portugal, I have refined my Portuguese and love many people from various cultures.  

I teach Old Testament locally, as well as missionary preparation, giving my turbulent life in Court some balance.  

It will be great to see all who attend

You all probably don't remember me.  I was shy back then.  Not so much anymore.  I have two beautiful girls and live very close to where I grew up.  Life has certainly been a journey.  It's had it highs and lows but well worth the trip.  I'm loving life and feel the good lord has blessed me many times over.  It's been fun reading up on eveyone.
