I will be retiring on May 10th after 40 years at Motorola. My overall experience at Sig Ep helped me in the corporate success I enjoyed. The people (associates and customers) will be remembered, not the work. I expect the transition time from work to retirement should take me about 15 minutes.

After 35 years of stamping out disease as a urologist, I retired two years ago, and moved to the country. Lee and I now live in Lyerly, GA (don't feel bad if you haven't heard of it - neither had the woman at the drivier's license office.) We now operate an equine rescue and sanctuary, currently caring for 27 horses. Visit (and donate to) us at www.redclayrescue.org. Our five kids are doing well - Page working retail in Atlanta; Caroline married with 4 kids, married to a Cobb County cop; Kathleen in development at the Atlanta History Center; Andy, with two kids, soon to be promoted to Staff Sgt in the Marines; and Sam also a Cobb County cop. We don't travel as much as we did, but still take a grandchild every December to the German Christmas Markets (and drink plenty of Gluwein). Would welcome visits from any SigEps who can find Lyerly (about 1.5 hours from Atlanta, 1 hour from Chattanooga.)

Lytle & Woodard Do the British Pub

Ron Woodard, '72, and I had lunch together in Hampton, VA 2 weeks ago. We hadn't seen each other in 35ish years. He handles DoD accounts for Motorola and I'm working for US Joint Forces Command in Norfolk. We got serendipitously connected through an email chain over some lost radios. Had a great lunch together. If any comes up to the Hampton Roads area, give me a call.

Joe Gordon appeared on CNBC Power Lunch on Friday, November 13th hosted by Bill Griffeth and Dennis Kneale. The segment dealt with places high net worth and business owners invest to safely build wealth without the volatility of the market. Gordon stressed the anti-business environment in D.C. and other headwinds made stocks a risky bet going forward and that S&P 500 conmpanies made their numbers in Q2 and Q3 by cutting expenses without any meaningful top line revenue growth. You cannot cut your way to record profits!

In 2003 I retired as an associate superintendent with the Wake County Schools in Raleigh. For the past several years I have been consulting in North Carolina with high school reform and with helping low performing high schools improve academic results. Mary Penn, my wife of 34 years, has worked in the pharmaceutical industry and is currently a district manager. Both sons graduated from UNC and were Pikas. David is an assistant district attorney in Raleigh. David and Lise have two children, Addison, 3, and Austin, 16 months. They love their Gdaddy. Will has just moved to D.C. after spending six years in New York City as a literary agent. I especially enjoy a fall golf outing each year with 12-16 experienced Sig Eps.

I have been living in Fayetteville, N.C. since 1981. Married a local girl, Terry, who is an elementary school counselor. I have 2 daughters. Sydney is 24 and a UNC grad in 2007. Leslie is a rising senior at Chapel Hill and is having a big time. She is majoring in Speech and Audiology and hopes to go to grad school for a masters in Speech Pathology. Sydney has just bought her first house and is running an on line program at Fayetteville Tech. I am managing partner at Darden, Miranda and Associates Insurers in Fayetteville. We have just formed an additional corp Darden, Miranda Financial Services, Inc. Married life and children have been about as good as it gets, for an old dog like me. I see many of our era at the SigEp golf weekend in the fall. If anyone is coming through Fayetteville stop in.

Tom Lytle and Kim Fadel, pledge brothers, '74, met in Norfolk, VA, for a beer and dinner. They hadn't seen each other since Naval Aviation Schools Command in July '74, where they were going through flight training. The good news was that they both recognized each other on the street after 35 years. No photos were taken, but the waitresses did express some amazement at their apparent youth and vigor when shown the photos in a '74 Rush brochure.

Donna and I are still happily married after 27 years. We have two daughters (Allison and Lauren). Both are attending UNC. Allison is a senior and will go an extra year to get her masters in accounting. She lives in a house on the corner of Henderson and North Street with 9 other KDs. It's easy to find. It's the one with all the beer cans in the recycle bin. Like father like daughter. Lauren is a freshman and pledged ZETA. She's having a great time too. I'm still working for R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. Had the chance to play golf with Gray McCaskill, Darrell Shealy, and Bob Spencer at CCNC in May. Had a great time but still trying to figure out how I could owe those hackers money! Donna and I go to the football games so hope to see some of you there.

I finally bit the marriage apple at age 43, two years ago, have a nineteen-month-old daughter, Grace, and one more in the oven due 09/03/03. Career wise, I sold my original company to a venture capital-backed start-up in 2000, and left fifteen months later to start my own wealth management business for private company owners and executives. Just back from Paris and helped the French learn not to piss us Yanks off or else we won't buy their wine. Life is too short to drink cheap wine.

I just had a great afternoon with the 22 year old son of Claude Rosser known to most of us as Mush. As you may know, Claude passed away 18 years ago when his son was 4 years old. Blake Rosser grew up in St. Louis and came to Carolina on a Chancellor's Scholarship and graduated this past May. There were only 18 of these scholarships given in the United States. I understand that he has gone out to eat with Mike and Pat Prince and he has now spent an afternoon with me. He was a Chi Psi at Chapel Hill and is working now in Pittsboro. He would like to talk with any of you that knew his father. He really never got to know him at age 4. The resemblance and attitude of Blake is really strange to me since he is so much like his father. His phone number is 919-593-3385. Please call him and include him in our Sig Ep family. Mush would really love it.

I am a Chevrolet dealer in Albemarle, N.C. Helen and I have three daughters and will be attending graduation at Chapel Hill for one of them this Spring. The oldest graduated from that college in Winston Salem, but the youngest will be a junior at UNC next year. On occasion, I see Bob Slaughter, Tim Turner, Ron Woodard, Mark Andrew, and Mike Prince(at football games). I'll be at all home football games this year. Last time I was in Chapel Hill the house looked like Bill Rendleman needed to spend about two months there with his cleaning skills and high energy.

I have recently resigned my job and am taking a brief sabbatical with Adelaide at our home on Lake Norman in North Carolina. I plan to get back to work in New York or North Carolina after a few months of R & R and travel. I recently played gold with Daschiel Propst in Morehead City and got caught up on a lot of the guys. I am watching the building fund campaign for the house closely and hope more people will participate soon.

I am still living in Wilmington, NC and am a senior partner with the Children's Clinic, a division of Wilmington Health Assoc. My oldest son, Nick, graduated from UNC last year and is spending a year in Americorps. My youngest son, Scott, is finishing his sophomore year at UNC. For the past 7-8 years, I play golf on a weekend each fall with 12-16 brothers. People from the classes of '71-75 include Ron Darden, Bruce Arnette, CB Armstrong, Dachel Propes, Jim Adams, Barry Arnette, John Gilcrist, Mike Prince, Walt Sherlin, Rick Newell, Ralph Huff, Jim Griffin, and Ed Nassif. This has been a wonderful weekend of golf and brotherhood. This golf weekend has been going on for at least 12 years.

After almost 22 years of solo urology practice, I finally got a partner in September in anticipation of slowing down a bit. However, after I hired him, but before he got here from Maryland, I was named Chief of Surgery at my hospital, so my administrative duties have increased as my surgical time has decreased. Lee and I have been married since 1980, when I finished residency, and have five kids - Page (23) is a 1st year graduate student at Emerson College in Boston in Media Arts, Caroline (21) is a junior in psychology at Boston University, Kathleen (19) is a sophomore at Presbyterian College in Art and Art History (wants to go th UNC for graduate school), Andy (18) is a senior in High School and plans to join the Marines after graduation, and Sam (17) is a junior in high school, and hopes to go to UNC pre-med (there's always one idiot). Lee is my 6th student (and tuition), working on her PhD in French and Spanish at Univ of Ga, with all course work done, and now the dissertation. I have reactivated my interest and proficiency in flying, got recertified, and bought an airplane last year. I have flown a few times to Charlotte to see Lee's family, college visits, etc., but don't fly as much as I would like. A pilot friend and I hope to fly to Alaska next year after I get my instrument rating. Would love to hear from the 1971 (+ or - a few years) gang if anyone happens to show up in Atlanta.

My oldest son, Scott, is a student at Carolina (Class of 2006), so for the 2005 Final Four weekend my other son, Mitchell, and I went to Chapel Hill to help cheer the Heels on to victory in the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship. We spent five days in Chapel Hill watching Carolina sporting events during the day and basketball at night. We left for our home in Atlanta after welcoming the new champs at the Dean Dome on April 5.

I have been retired for 4 plus years. Hunt, Fish, golf, travel, read, compute finally got seats in the dean dome after all these years. Keep up with Rankin, Noyes, Smith, Absher, Biggerstaff, Rooney, Nash, Eden, and others via e-mail and facebook.

Best memory is when I was a pledge we stole all the kitchen furniture, silverware, and dishes from the old green house. The brothers finally captured one of the pledges and we had to give it back.

Summer '59

After washing out of Carolina in 1960, I finished up at UMass (Sig Ep Mass Alpha) in spring '64. 21 years of Air Force later, I settled in Yorktown, VA, retiring from my second career in '04. Recently widowed, I'm now spending my time trying to get my handicap into single digits and managing the deer herd on my little piece of VA woodland. I've often wondered what became of room mate Mike Rooney and Bill Stepp. Would be interested in exchanging emails with any of the brothers from the '59 and '60 time frame.

After graduating in the spring of '61, I served in the US Navy for two years and went to work for the DuPont Co. I retired after 30 years in direct sales. Moved to Chapel Hill in 1998 and went to work as a courier in 2003 for the UNC Athletic Dept., the best job I have ever had. I got together with John Rankin, Frank Biggerstaff, Phil Nash and Jim Noyes, and all of the class of '61, several times a year. Also I'm in constant contact with Doug Squillario, Ed Riner, Henry Absher, Lindy Dunn, Bob Peebles, Carl Matheson and Dick Lowe.

Having retired almost 11 years ago, I continue to enjoy it very much. Too much to do, so little time to do it. I stay in touch with several brothers on a regular basis. Doug Squillario, Clark Smith and I frequently exchange e-mails and see each other from time to time. Clark stayed with Sarah and me when he came to Atlanta for the Peach Bowl this winter. I visit with Joe and Sandra Pool from time to time when in Charlotte keeping our granddaughters. We also see each other at the Dean Dome since our seats there are fairly close to each other. We enjoy our frequent visits with Lindy and Pattie Dunn at Haig Point on Daufuskie Island, SC, where both of us have second homes. We had not seen each other for about 40 years until a couple of years ago when Lindy bought his first property there. I just wish my golf game was as good as his.

After retiring twice, I went back to work driving the courtesy (in this case a ML 320), for one of the local Mercedes Benz dealers. I enjoy it because I get to drive a variety of fancy cars without having to pay for them. Also I get to meet a group of interesting people. I am also quite active in our church Trinity Presbyterian (PCA).
