I am one of the lost boys from 65. I believe that there were 10 in our graduating class. three were eventually ordained. Two, Ty Schaff and Mike Savaleski are still in. One, Dave Brumbach, quit and got married, and is a college teacher near Seattle. After graduation from Mater Cleri, I graduated from Gonzaga University in 1969 BA Political Science, and then from the Law School in 1973. JD. I moved to the Oregon Coast (Lincoln City) in 1973 for employment and have been a self employed attorney specializing in criminal defense ever since. I am married (Marcia) and have 7 children, Joe, Steve, Gari, Cindy, Jacque, Greg and Thomas, the oldest 45, the youngest 21. I am presently writing you from La Cruz de Huanacaxtle Mexico at the Riviera Nayarit Marina aboard our sailboat the SV Defender where we have been living since the 1st of February. Sadly we are leaving for Lincoln City on April 7 and work. This coming year 2015  will be the 50th anniversary of my graduation from M.C. I have seen classmate Mike Pontorolo (also a Gonzaga Law School Graduate) at several law school reunions. One graduate Howard P. Stout is deceased. He was one of my best buddies and died of cancer in his 40s.
