For the Glory
Janice (Harms '62) and I attended our 50th Class ReUnion at PSU this past weekend. Duane Alexander and Chuck Gaston were the only other TEKEs in attendance, but many of Janice's Gamma Phi sisters attended including Sue Paterno. Janice and I are now "Pioneers", so we will be attending the reunions on an annual basis going forward. We get back to State 2-3 times a year as I am involved with the Penn State Libraries. The Gamma Phi's also manage to get back for at least one football weekend; this year it will be Navy in September. I am so pleased that the response to the House Project continues to move onward and upward with several brothers increasing their pledges. Hats off to those who have been so supportive!

After 22 years as the CFO of Tube Processing Corp (January, 2008) I weighed my options and decided to try for an even 2 dozen. Not a bad decision as I watched the markets moving towarg the "bear" levels. My crystal ball shows new highs before 2010 arrives. My older son and his wife are both actors living in New York. They do mostly regional theater and an occaisional small role in New York based TV shows. The younger son and his wife live in Denver with our first grandchild. Our youngest (a daughter) is challenging her oldest brother for number of college degrees earned as she seeks to add another bachelors degree to the preceeding bachelors and masters degree. My wife and I continue to update a cottage that we buoght on a small lake near Traverse City, Michigan. We hope to have it ready to serve as a summer/fall home base when we reach retirement in 2010.

After a 33 year career in physical education and athletics (a result of being the TKE intramural chair) at traditional universities (Penn State, University of Alabama-Huntsville, and Frostburg State), for the past seven years I have worked at an online university, Columbia Southern, in Orange Beach, Alabama, where I am now Executive Vice President. Although there is no campus life, work here is still exciting as I get to travel and meet with students all over the world. If a position as an online university faculty member interests you, please contact me. I still enjoy playing racquetball and have improved greatly since getting a new hip two year ago. I also still referee soccer and basketball, and spend a lot of time hunting with my German Shorthair Pointers. I have just begun a four year term as the Chair of the Soccer Rules Committee of the the National Federation of High Schools.

After thirty-nine years as Social Studies Liaison and teacher of Advanced Placement United States History at North Allegheny Senior High School (in the northern suburbs of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania), I retired in June 2007. Although there were many opportunities to move up or go into business, I simply enjoyed teaching, found it to be an art for which I had a real knack, and felt I might be making a small contribution to the future.

As my wife and former pinmate Patricia (once known far and wide as "the one" who, when pressed to do so by the crowd at a social event, used a judo move to throw a certain frater to the floor in the middle of the house foyer) is also retired from the medical industry, we are now contemplating a life of routine gym workouts, travel, following Penn State and local sports teams, theater, catching up on a long list of books, and visiting our children and grandchildren.

Both of our sons are Penn State grads. The oldest is an advertising honcho with Google and the other is an FBI policeman and instructor in personal self defense tactics for the Bureau. (Apparently his mother was a great influence in his life.) We feel truly blessed and remember Penn State and TKE in the late 1960s as a wonderful time and place to become thoughtful young citizens.

In Sep 2005 I came down with severe pains on my side and Dec 2005 was diagnosed with bone cancer- multiple myeloma and had cancer in every bone in my body. 

In 2006 at the Univ. of Pa. in Phila, Pa. they harvested 6.4 million stem cells from me and in June they put 2 million back in. I guess the cancer had progressed so much that in the end of Sep 2006 they put in another 2 million. 

They did a biopsy of my hip in Mar of 2007 and they now have me in remission.

My wife, Lynne, and I have been living in Austin Texas for about 9 years, after a long stay in Houston. We love central Texas and Austin is a fun city, with lots of amenities. 

We have two sons in their 20’s, Eric and Jason. Eric is happily married and living in Austin. Jason is finishing his undergraduate degree at UT Austin.

Most recently I had been working for the University of Texas as a Program Director in the College of Engineering. Most of my projects dealt with student and faculty entrepreneurship. It was great fun. I decided to retire about two years and have been just doing some small consulting projects and volunteer work since. Lynne and I are enjoying some extra travel and I have been engrossed by family tree research. It tends to be an exercise in puzzle solving.

If any of my classmates are in central Texas, please come and visit.

Fraternity for life! This past September Dave Goss '69 and Jeff Bower '69 took a two-week road trip together -- to Germany, Hungary, the Czeck Republic and Austria. Thanks to some of Dave's relatives in Vienna, some re-traced steps that Dave and his wife, Kathy, had taken before and a reliable rental car, everything was great, and they finished their trip in Munich, celebrating Oktoberfest. They also visited an old friend of Jeff's in Gmunden, Austria, whom he hadn't seen or spoken with since the summer of 1972 when he, Jack Walmer '69, Mitch Work '69 and Ned Bulk '69 backpacked and Eurailed across Europe. Recommendation -- don't wait, just do it!

The class of '69 along with fraters from the classes of '67 through '71 held a reunion gathering over the Oct. 30th weekend. This event occurs every 5 years and continues to draw fraters from all over the country. Events included golf, a visit to the house, TV game viewing, tour of campus, a short jog, socializing at the Skellar, Champs Sports Bar and a great Dinner Saturday at the Nittany Lion Inn. Fraters crooned the old teke standards; Honey, Of All the Girls, and numerous Penn State songs. The event was attended by 35 tekes and guests. We extend an early invitation to all interested fraters to participate in 2009.

Hi Guys, It's been great to read about my fellow Brothers. After reading about so many retired Brothers, I don't feel so guilty also being ""semi-retired"". My wife, Kimberly and I have lived in the same home in Laguna Beach for the last 25 years. We have two grown children, Gordon and Kristin, aged 24 and 23 respectively. I suggested we start a second family. We did- and now have a twelve year old boy, Travis. It seems I have turned into a full time coach in Baseball, Basketball, and Volleyball. It's true, young kids keep you young, but exhausted!! For the last 30 years I have operated my own company, a small shopping center developement firm. My wife and I only do property management on our Centers now, thus the ""semi-retirement"". After seeing the great photo of Larry on his Vespa, I'm going to wait until I see some fat, grey, bald Brother's photos before I send mine. I have nothing but great memories of all of you. I'm very proud to read about your lives, jobs and, most important, your families.

After 35 years with Texaco, Caltex and ChevronTexaco, we (Barbara worked for Texaco for 20 years) retired to our home in New York. My latest assignment, which started in January 2000, was in Sydney, Australia. We moved there from Dallas, Texas, where I had an assignment with Caltex (then a 50/50 refining and marketing joint venture between TX and CH, which are now merged into one company). he Dallas HQ closed and moved to Singapore, ""forcing"" our small group of three out to the areas where Caltex did business. Just as when we moved back from Saudi Arabia (a Bush on our minds then too) in 1993, this has been a very snowy winter...........but when you don't need to get up to go to work who cares? Our son Nathaniel found the transition to NY public schools relatively easy compared to Anglican private school in Sydney.

Live in Los Angeles, teach in a wonderful school for girls, enjoying the warm weather and the activity of a young city. We have a place in the desert for peace and quiet but spend a fair amount fo time seeing the National Parks and traveling. Have visited the house a few times since graduation ('67) and have followed the rise, fall and then resurrection of TKE over the past few years. Feel confident that the efforts of all will have the house last another fifty years. Thank you for the web page. It is informative and I appreciate reading about the members from the 60's.

Steffy, D. Posted: 12/21/2006 9:13:53 AM
Class of 1966 Posted by an administrator
Like my first grandchild who just completed her first year of life (in some societies that means she could now be named), I stand at a point in my life that seems to hold great potential for the future. Elinor Peace Steffy gave every indication of being here to stay from day one, and so in keeping with the luxury of low infant mortality that we take for granted in this society, she has held both her name and an unbelievable potential for her future from her very beginning. I, on the other hand, have been somewhat in both professional and personal limbo for almost a decade now. But that might be changing. Personally, the woman whose company and nurturing I have been fortunate enough to enjoy for some ten years now, has just married off her eldest daughter and that one of her two daughters is, may I say it, finally out of the ""house"" (actually a modest New York city apartment). While her other daughter and I have enjoyed a very good ""replacement father"" and daughter relationship from the very beginning, I have lot been living in their household, because such was not the case with daughter number one. Now, if my ""functional wife"" can finally get divorced (several years ago she gave a lawyer money for a divorce, but he never produced and she could not afford to take any further action--she is only a special ed school teacher), there might finally be a remarriage in my near future. We hope to be living together soon anyway. But the fact that we have not been living together all this time, might just be the reason we have lasted as long as we have as a couple. Time will tell. With my first marriage, I learned that love does not ""conquer all."" Professionally, after having been shot down eight years ago by my college in the implementation of a cross-cultural learning project involving teachers, teachers to be and schools in NYC and Belize in Central America, I have finally repaired my self-esteem and decided to attempt the development and implementation of a modification of my original ""Their Schools and Ours Cross-cultural Teaching & Learning Project. Originally, I attempted to involve teacher education and anthropology student from my college, but because of the nature of my contract at Queens, I was not permitted to be away for any period off time. This time I intend to work only with practicing teachers in both societies and seek support for semester leave of absence from my job to make my contribution to the Belize side of the project. With the help of internet access newly acquired in Belize and my, since retired, informant and colleague from eight years ago, we hope to make a new version of the original project work his time. But time will tell here also, because we must find money for a transfer of technology to Belize. There are essentially no computers in schools there. My colleague, a retited Education Officer from the Ministry of Education (one of 16 in the whole country at the time of his retirement) doesn't even own a computer. If we can get support, we will be training teachers in Belize in the educational use of e-mail connectivity and teachers in both societies in the design and implementation of cross-cultural, e-mail-based learning experiences. The ultimate goal is to get students in NYC and Belize involved in cooperative, cross-cultural learning experiences via international e-mail, an impossible goal just a few years ago and not even dreamed of eight years ago when I failed in my first attemp to make a cross-cultural learning project work. Given the odds, we will probably not find the increased funding that this new version of the project requires. But if you don't try you will never know. Besides, failure gets easier to take the second time around. If any TKE brothers out there are connected to granting agencies or organizations and would like to explore getting involved in an extremely exciting cross-cultural educational projest, please contact me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. I would consider moving the U.S. side

Does anyone has some connections to help a lone inventor with publicity or contacts? I've developed a voting system that I can reasonably claim to be more secure and less expensive than anything else available. It's also at least as accurate as anything else, and easy to use -- even disabled and blind can vote unassisted. But so far, I haven't managed to get any county to use it. It's almost entirely software, and it runs (in ""practice mode"") on any IBM-style PC that can boot from a 3.5"" floppy. (That includes almost all of the machines being trashed today.) If you want to download it and try it, or just learn more, check out www.savioc.com.

I have developed a voting system that is even less expensive than the notoriously cheap punch cards, arguably more secure than any other, and good for the environment. It is mostly software and runs on old PCs that are being discarded daily. Details and completely functional downloadable software are available at www.savioc.com. Now, if I could just get some jurisdiction to use it.

Following retitement at the end of 1998 (motion picture and television end of the business with Kodak), Barb and I have continued to travel the world, visiting Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, the Amazon Jungle, Peru, Machu Picchu and the Galapagos Islands. Relocated to Tucson, Ariz., in 2000 where Barb volunteers as a story teller at a local pre-school and kindergarten (she was a teacher for 25 years before she retired). I volunteer at the local SCORE chapter (Service Corp of Retired Executives) and recently learned that Carl Troutman (Pi 1953) serves as the national chairman of the board. We are e-mailing back and forth regarding SCORE business. I also serve, pro bono, as the CFO of the University Film and Video Foundation, managing their investment portfolio which provides scholarships to university students throughout the U.S. and Canada whose major area of concentration is cinematography. In between times, I am trying to play golf as often as possible as we are right on the course. Days fly by, and there are never enough hours to do everything I would like to do. Don't know how I found time to work before I retired. Would like to hear from any brothers, especially years 1956 through 1962.

My Hobby Memoir by Joe Galiardi
Hello. It's Joe Galiardi, class of 1957. You may or you may not know that I claim to have the largest autographed golf ball collection in the country. The Guinness World Records is considering adding a new category to their annual edition and listing me for having the largest and most diversified autographed golf balls collection in the world. I wrote a book about my unique collection titled Hooked on Autographs. My book, published in 2009, is an unforgettable collection of anecdotes and yarns that highlight what it took for me to acquire my vast collection over the past twenty-five years. In my hobby memoir, I describe many of my favorite tales in garnering and gathering signed golf balls from best-loved golfers, famous Hollywood entertainers, notable sports figures, and even U.S. Presidents. I have seven signed ball by U.S. Presidents starting with Richard Nixon. My roster of autographs read like a Who's Who in the hallowed halls of celebrity legends. More importantly, I am donating the proceeds of my book to the Walter Reed Society, a non-profit Washington, DC, organization, established to give financial aid to our returning wounded soldiers. My sister, Rose Marie Mologne (PS Class of 1953), is the founder of the Society. Golf lovers will revel and non-golfers will delight in reading my one-of-a-kind book comprised of 16 spirited chapters,154 pages. Hooked on Autographs can be obtained from Amazon.com or directly from me. I personalize all books sold through me. Including shipping, the cost of my book is $16.41. To order my amusing book, you can either call me at (408) 996-1762 or e-mail me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. With the holidays now upon us, Hooked on Autographs makes for a perfect Christmas gift for yourself or for a close golfing friend. I hope to hear from you. YITB, Joe Galiardi

As many of you, the TKE Reunion was held in Wildwood Crest, NJ on the last Tuesday and Wednesday of May. While it has been more than 50 years since we played music together, Ken Lesight, Fran Taylor and I had the opportunity to play some oldies and goodies both evenings.

You may recall that during the 1953-56 time frame, we would have a jam session almost every evening before sitting down to a delicious dinner by our cook, Bill the Greek. 

It was indeed a pleasure to hear Ken play his flugel horn and Fran, his electric base, while I played a Yamaha Keyboard that I recently purchased.

Several of the TKE brothers and their wives said we sounded pretty good after all those years.

I just want to say that I had a ball playing with Ken, who is a professional musician, and Fran, who chimed in with his bass.

We'll look forward to a repeat performance next
Y.I. T.B.

Penn State now has a world class law school with the completion of the new law school facility on main campus and the new law school facilities in Carlisle. The two facilities represent a $200,000,000 investment in legal education. The buildings are worth a tour next time you are on the University Park campus or in Carlisle. 

I am continuing to chair the capital campaign for the law school and represent the school on the Penn State capital campaign which will be kicked off on Blue White Weekend in April. If any of you are going to be on campus that weekend, let me know, it would be great to see you. 

I continue to serve as a commercial arbitrator when the case in interesting and is a good location. The great thing about this work is that I can say no - a big difference from a career of 24 x 7.

Kathy and I continue to travel. This summer we are going camping - no, not that kind of camping. We are going to wine camp on the north fork of long island. We will stay in a wonderful bed and breakfast, eat gormet food, experience the wine making process from the fields to the bottle, and yes, drink some wine.

We have a number of weeks at the beach, a week in SaratogaSprings for the horse races, a week in San Francisco area and frequent trips to New York City.

While I was considered the "eternal pledge" (not making an All-U avg. for umpteen semesters), I finally made it to the "big league" and I have to say, before they throw dirt over my grave, that my years as a Teke was a fantastic experience. I entered the house as a "kid", was intimidated and awed by those Korean Vets and upperclassmen, yet came to know what being part of something was all about. WE really had the greatest thing going, really respected each other AND the fraternity--- and were winners! Wow! Unfortunately some bad stuff ensued over the years, and I hope they find their way back to the qualities of the 50's. 
As for me, I've been in Tampa for 11 years, being a heart transplant survivor for 10+ years and now awaiting a kidney transplant (due to the immune suppressant drugs I take for the heart) But anyway, life is good here in the "slow lane". Sure wish I could travel and get to see some of those "old guys" at their 50th reunion in June, but dialysis makes that but a fantasy at this time.

After I graduated in 1956 I did not keep in touch with the Teke House or my Teke Brothers. It remained this way for 50 years. Last summer I attended the annual reunion in New Jersey. I was so overcome with pride for Penn State and Tau Kappa Epsilon I vowed I would never miss another reunion. I returned again this summer and even had a better time. I am 73 years young, and as long as my health holds, I will make the reunions. Imagine what it feels like to see your Teke Brothers for the first time in 50 years!! What a great bunch of guys!

Duane, also know as Humpty, invited me to the TKE house in the spring of 1949. We met in Harrisburg while working summer jobs the year before. During the Thanksgiving break of 1950, he picked me up in Harrisburg to go to the Penn State Pitt game at Pitt. We stayed at Joan's home, it snowed so hard that the game was cancelled. What a great GUY and BROTHER!

Charlie roard in and we didn't sustain much damage, went four hours without electricity. Hurricanes aren't so bad. Then Frances came by and lasted four days with lots of rain and no electricity for eight days. We're tough and survived. Then Jeane came by and paid us a visit with a lot more rain. Five days without electric. Storms left tons of debre but very little damage to Mobile Home Park. High water almost drowned our rec hall and sewer pumping station but they were saved with a dike and sand bags. Three weeks later we are still picking up limbs, pumping water from the lake, and will be doing tree surgery the rest of the winter. Every time the wind picks up and it clouds over I get this depressed feeling. I wonder why? I'm glad Florida has a sunny winter.

Celebrated golden wedding anniversary with Robin in June 2002. Four sons, seven grandchildren. I usually get back to State College for 5-year high school reunion; the next one is June 2003. Fan of Teke's own Ben Novak, Joe Paterno and Seattle Mariners.

I have just executed my fourth retirement - here's hoping that this one sticks. Leaving more time for racquetball, golf and boating. Continue to live in VA, while spending the winters in Boynton Beach FL. Notify me when class of ""52"" plans a reunion. This email address is being protected from spambots.

Had an interesting bow hunting trip to Colorado, then went down to Las Crusis, N.M., to visit a customer. My wife went with me this year which was great. Have a new Brittany Spaniel, and we have been giving the quail a fit in South Carolina.
