San Francisco Superior Court Judge Donald J. Sullivan ’68, J.D. ’71 received the prestigious Judge of the Year Award for 2013 from the San Francisco Trial Lawyers' Association at its annual black tie dinner at the Ritz Carleton Hotel in San Francisco. Sullivan currently presides over a trial department in the criminal division.

Sullivan reports that he immensely enjoyed the 45th reunion of his class of ’68 and wishes he had had more time to spend chatting with his classmates. Sullivan lives in Mill Valley with his wife, Genevieve.
Freshman Dorm: Nobili
Carol Sexton ’68 writes, "Rob Sexton ’68 and I married in 1970, raised 4 kids both here and abroad. He passed away in 2008, having lived a full and rich life as a designer and artist. I practice guerilla teaching in business school, carefully undermining the Milton Friedman-esque mindsets of the younger generations. Currently at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo's Agribusiness department—labor issues in agriculture. Can't imagine retiring!"
Eighty-six-year-old Korean War veteran John Meyers MBA ’68 writes that he is being flown to Washington, D.C., with Honor Flight. He was awarded a Bronze Star and a Combat Infantry Badge while in Korea in 1951 and 1952. He plays golf three times a week and has 10 holes-in-one.
Huntly Gordon MBA ’70 has been dubbed "The World's Most Interesting Man" by the Santa Cruz Sentinel. That's because 35 years of adventure travel have given him countless stories: the time he ran with the bulls through the narrow, twisting streets of Pamplona, Spain; when he was trapped in Tehran during the 1978 Iranian Revolution; when he walked into a gun battle on a dark street in Cuzco, Peru; the time he encountered primitive Dani tribesmen, their fierce, naked bodies covered only by strategic gourds.
John Giovannetti ’68 has been inducted into the Lemoore Union High School Hall of Fame in the category of Friend of Lemoore High School. He served on the school's board of trustees for 12 years. He coached girls soccer for the past 18 years at both the JV and varsity levels.
A. A. Chanteloup '54 is retired in Sunnyvale. He writes that he's taking care of his very ill wife and enjoys Santa Clara Magazine.
