Clay Millage

1711 Eldridge Ave
Bellingham, WA 98225
360 733-3078
Marital Status: married
Spouse Name: Andy
Children: Kira 12/03/82, Erika 04/29/86, Teal 06/14/88
Occupation: 8th grade science teacher at Lynden Middle School
Reunion: I've been married since 1980 and have 3 great daughters; ages 21, 18, 16. My oldest, Kira, is about to graduate from Boston University (boy that makes me feel old!). I couldn't ask for a better family. We have lived in Bellingham, Washington since moving from Houston in 1993. I have been teaching high school or middle school for 14 years and still get a real charge out of it. I was always interested in science so it should be no surprise that I ended up teaching science to 8th graders. They drive me nuts on a daily basis but I enjoy my job immensely. Four years ago I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, cancer of the bone marrow. Although it is somewhat treatable, it is incurable - news like that tends to grab your attention and keep it. I underwent a stem cell transplant July 2003 with mixed results. However, I'm still alive and kicking and intend to remain that way for as long as possible.

[June 15, 2006]

Clay Millage died Sunday, June 11, 2006 after courageously battling cancer for six years. Clay leaves behind his wife, Andra, three grown daughters, Kira, Erika and Teal, his sister Ann (Class of 1976) and parents, JoAnne and Elmer. He joins in death his older brother Brent (Class of 1972). Remembered by Kirk Gelsinger

I'd like to attend the 30-year reunion, hopefully it will be during the summer when it's easier to travel. Every year, July-August, I bring the kids to La Crescenta to visit their grandparents.

Reunion: I would love to see some good "old" friends.
Comments: I did not graduate from CVHS; I left in the middle of 11th grade to get married. Finished a GED in Miami and have been going to college forever it seems. Remembering back, I realize how fast life has gone by and truly have learned from it. As the saying goes, "If I only knew then, what I know now", but what fun would it have been? I am truly saddened by knowing those who have passed away much to early in their lives. Losing a loved one awakens us to cherish our families and friends, always. I met the love of my life in 1997 and I have never been happier. Hope all is well with everyone. I am currently substitute teaching special education classes and finishing up a Master's degree in education. I hope everyone is enjoying life.

Occupation:Licensing Program Analyst at California/Dept. of Social Services - licensing of foster homes in Los Angeles County.
Comments: Stay well & healthly by exercising daily and visiting the doctor as much as needed. Choose a good one as this is the time of our life when it becomes more important to watch one's health. We will be close to 60 years old in 10 more years and retirement will be short lived if we don't all stay fit & healthly. Beware of the cell phone as it is trully not always our friend. Not enough is known of it to be so user friendly. They have been known to blow up when overheated, cause people to become distracted when they shouldn't be and someday may be found to cause brain tumors or brain cancers. Distracted people have and cause accidents. I use it only for emergencies; don't like to hold it too close to the head and prefer to pull over to use it. It is even more hazardous to small people. I don't see it as much different from smoking or driving under the influence. Someone soon will make a movie called "Cell Phone".

Children: Nicole Lee 12/84, Justin 9/86
Occupation: heavy equipment operator for state of California
Comments: still kickin!..6 years in the Marine Corps after school that took me to 9 different countries and thru some history making events,I was a utility lineman till I was downsized in 1993. Than I worked for NASA (Edwards AFB) as a contract project manager but my need to be outside in the elements was screaming so I gave up the office and took the offer with the state . My wife and I have two grown kids who are married and each have a boy; both were born in 2003, 6 mos.apart. They live close by and we see them frequently and spend a lot of time with the little guys. We rode & rodeo'd for years but the thrill has gone so we do more motorcycle things with our family.The boys love to come out to our place in this desert and ride their quads and motorcycles. We fish/hunt and travel alot traditionally spending a few holidays down in Ocotillo Wells camping and riding each year with our kids and a lot of good people. I have to admit that my best friend/wife has been a real trooper all these years and has kept me in line, supporting my hunger for action (rodeo and desert racing) "she's a good one". Missed the 20 and 30 yr. reunions due to our busy lives and as my wife says "Adventures". Rumor was that I was killed on the vietnam evacuation back in 1975 (they tried). Anyhow I'm alive and well here in the desert and have been since my discharge in 1979. Would love to talk with you at the next reunion.

My name is Susan Greer, and regretfully I have to inform you that Michael passed on August 23, 2013; after a brief fight with pancreatic cancer.  He was diagnosed the beginning of March, and after a short visit in the hospital (for sepsis) the end of July, he was sent home on hospice care.

Tom Reilley

In 2001 my good friend Tom Reilley passed away, leaving a wife Carol and two beautiful children, Danny and Mariah. When we saw each other we often recalled the "summer of our lives" spent in Hawaii in 1976 for 3 months. Many fun experiences in Hawaii which included working on a boat for Windjammer Cruises and partying in Waikiki. One day (of many), we were sitting on the beach taking in the "scenery" when '74 classmate Paul Roberts walked by and literally tripped on our feet. Paul, surprised to see us said "what are you guys doing here?". Tom replied, "we were waiting for you, ya' big dummy" and we all laughed. Tom and I also "ran into" '74 classmates Laurie Talbot and Debbie Walmsley, whom we partied with in Waikiki. In Tom's eulogy I recalled the "summer of 76" and fishing in the San Gabriels. In Santa Clarita, I've "run into" more classmates than I can list and we all fondly recall the 74 Falcons.

We opened up our first Woof's Dog Bakery store in Gold Beach and three months later opened up our second in Brookings Oregon. We love what we are doing and can't imagine doing anything else. We have 4 children between us and 5 grandchildren. I love being a grandma! Would love to hear from any of my old classmates. Looking forward to our next reunion in 2014! [January 3, 2009)

Randy Wager
Glendale, CA
Marital Status: Still madly in love with wife of 34 years (and high school sweetheart). She's still madly in love with him, too!
Spouse Name: Kathi
Children: Megan (Wager) Smith- CV class '00, Bryce Wager- CV class '02 & Peter Wager- CV class '02 ( yep, twins!). Grandchildren:   Lucy Belle Smith (6), Cora Lynn Smith (3)
Occupation: Architect at Jet Propulsion Laboratory /NASA, Pasadena, CA
Comments (from his wife, Kathi):  Anyone who knew my husband in 1974, knew he was a young man of few words, with a huge heart. He worked hard and played hard, enjoying life with his girlfriend ( now his wife of many years) and his friends. Randy never cared to study much in high school, because life held too many adventures to be had! He was ( and is) a brilliant man, but during those fleeting teen years, classes and homework just didn't seem as important as a ride on a motorcycle or a lazy day on the sand with his beach babe (ha ha!).
In 1979, Randy graduated from Cal Poly State University, San Luis Obispo with a BA in Architecture, after working like a dog to fully support himself and his education. He was immediately hired by a prestigious architectural firm, did well and went on to work for and contribute his talents at some of the most important firms. That same year ('79), he married the love of his life and still counts her as such! 
Family has always been a top priority for Randy. He has been blessed with 3 amazing, brilliant children, one (daughter Megan) who has made him a "papa" to 2 equally adorable ( and adoring) granddaughters! 
Because of his selfless love for his family, at what could have been the pinnacle of his architectural career, Randy gave up big salaries, personal accolades and long days at the office. He traded these for precious time with his wife and children. In 2003, while balancing work & family, he earned his MBA by studying at night. He left the prestige and has had a satisfying career at JPL to this present day.
Randy is an awesome, incredible, fun, amazing husband, father, grandfather (papa) and friend!! Above all his many accomplishments, he is known best and most importantly as a man of honor. He is a strong believer in The Lord Jesus Christ.  Randy will tell you this is the bottom-line secret to his lasting, happy marriage and the essence of life. 
And yes, his heart has only grown bigger!

Comments: I was married for 29 years (to Mike Mayer) and have 5 wonderful children from that experience. I happily divorced and enjoyed the single life shortly. My children encouraged me to go online….sooo reluctantly I did…..and had a blast dating again. Totally different experience in dating! Richard found me by searching locally and we hit it off immediately. We married in June of 2006, in the Newport LDS temple. We certainly have a busy life with our nine children and their fine families. We are currently expecting our 20th grandchild! Richard teaches the deaf at a High School in Manhattan Beach (he just got a grant to be the first teacher in his district to instruct students with all iPad 2's) and we both serve in the Deaf Branch of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints in Riverside, CA. I have enjoyed finding friends again through the internet and hope you are all doing well.
