78 PIERCE / SPRING 2017 CLASS NOTES Peter R. Taylor '69 , owner of an executive search firm specializing in corporate real estate for major Fortune 500 companies throughout the United States since 1978, is now semi-retired with residences in New York City and Hanover, NH. His daughter is a Holy Cross graduate and attorney residing in Connecticut with two young children. His son is a Rutgers graduate having led the NCAA division one Scarlet Night fencing team and is currently residing in Philadelphia. 1970 Philip Bruno '70 writes, "Snowbirding down to Boynton Beach, Fla...wahoo. Winters in New England aren't the same since I left Pierce in 1970." 1971 Leslie Cooper '71 has moved to New Jersey and is a consultant for Epic Electronic Medical Records. Richie Schwartz '71 writes, "If any '71 grads remember me, please contact. I had a '66 396 blue Chevelle with 1/4 vinyl roof." 1972 Marcy (Pollock) Fink '73 and Art Fink '72 were so excited to host their third "Meet and Greet Get Together" for our FPU Ladies Bowling Team when they competed in a tournament in November in Delaware. Team members, coaches, parents and local alumni had a great time socializing, with plenty of good food and laughs. They are looking forward to hosting the team again next year when they return to compete in Delaware. "Go Lady Ravens!" 1974 Marty Gold '74 reports, "I am back at work and closing in on retirement after dealing with non-Hodgkins lymphoma in the fall of 2015." 1975 Lawrence "Larry" Abramson '75 writes, "A good year. My grandson is 4 1/2 and had a memorable birthday at Disney World with his sister, parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles. Patti and I are still working here in Florida. All in all, it could be worse. Best to all." 1977 Edwin Barton '77 , Professor of English and Department Chair at Bakersfield College, is retiring in May after nearly forty years of teaching at his present institution, California State University and Vanderbilt University. Ed and his wife, Glenda, and daughter, Caroline, will be moving to their summer home in Cambria, CA, where he hopes to spend the rest of his days reading, writing, drinking wine, and walking his dog Jenny on the beach. Ed last visited the Franklin Pierce campus in the fall of 2012 to accept the first Power of the Raven award for distinguished service and commitment to his profession. He also enjoyed a fine lunch with Professor Jim Mayberry. Charlie Mann '72 reports, "2016 was a year of many surprises and blessings. First of all I had the privilege to revisit my alma mater, FPU. It was such a great time and so inspired me to return in June 2017 for the Reunion. I look forward to see many of my old friends from 1968-1974. At Celestial Manna, where I am Founder and Executive Director, we had the resources to provide fresh daily food to tens of thousands of food insecure people throughout the year. Please check us out at www. and on Facebook. I can't wait to see and hear from you all soon." Neil Epstein '74 writes, "I fished recently with my sons, Lon and Marshall, in Marathon, FL. Regards to class of '74. I hope all are working on their bucket list (mine is still long). By the way, for those who went to Patillas, Puerto Rico, I hear it still looks the same as it is now a preserve. Check it out on Google."
