Comments:

Left Marin in the mid 70's to begin my engineering career in the South Bay for the next 30 years. I'm now living in the Santa Cruz mountains in Boulder Creek where I moved to in 1989 - 6 months before the big one! Survived! Left hi tech in 2004 and have been selling wine in the South Bay ever since - not as much money as engineering, but I'm drinking a lot of really good free wine! Am semi-retired and will schlep wine for a few more years until fully retired and maybe relocate to Sonoma County.
UPDATE: Sold the BC house in April, 2016, living in Los Gatos in our condo, and are now in escrow on that home in Santa Rosa (Oakmont Village). Happily married now to that wonderful woman, Nadine Toby for 1 and a half years now :)
UPDATE: Relocated to our new house in the Sonoma Valley (Oakmont part of Santa Rosa) in March, 2017; survived the fires!

Hello Cathy....been hearing covers of John Stewart's July, You're A Woman and others from California Bloodlines and am reminded of our Junior/Senior year of performing those songs with Bruce Kingsley... maybe you don't remember but we practiced a lot at your house in Tiburon....performed one night at some talent show in the auditorium at Redwood. .Hope you are well. Cheers, Bob

Bruce grew up in the Bel Air neighborhood in the Cove part of Tiburon, living next door to Bob Guider. Along with Mike Mosier and Jane Smith, we were roommates after graduation from RHS until he married Jane around 1973. Speaking for the period when we were close, Bruce loved music - together with Rob Yeager we played guitar to the songs of the times; partied with so many friends, socialized and worked hard to make a fulfilling life during the turbulent times of that era; Bruce could be contemplative, introverted, but always thoughtful of others. Looking back, we may have all been a little dillusional back then but remained optimistic for a bright future. And as some of us experienced at times in our lives, Bruce was challenged by personal demons but persevered in the end. He was a son, a brother, a husband, a father - he was a good human being and will be missed.

Please join me in posting any remembrances you may have of Bruce.

Rock on Bruce, Bob

Nice words Rick. I sat with Joanne and her husband at the 2000 reunion when she revealed she had cancer. I believe it was the next year that she passed. Very quiet, classy young woman. Bob

Ahhh, George, you bring back great memories of Mike. Bob Guider and I were working together at the Tiburon Cove Marin Wine and Spirits that sad day when Mike chose to leave us. I have fond memories of the parties at the SR house as well as my own parties at the 5th and Heatherton house with Bruce Iverson and later Mitch Jadot. Mike attended many - especially our Sunday morning football brunches. I see Guider often now that he's living near me in Scotts Valley and we remember Mike and his vibrant laugh and ear to ear smile. I often think of him driving into the eternal sunset in his Camaro with the top down and from the rear end all you see is "Had Any Lately? I'm Game". Rock on Mike, we miss you.
