Hi All 
Looking forward to catching up.  After high school I went to U of A and obtained a BComm degree, then articled and became a Chartered Accountant, returned to school for an MBA and joined Hudson’s Bay Oil and Gas.  Following HBOG’s takeover by Dome, I joined Home Oil, Interhome Energy, Home Oil again Fording Coal and finally finished my career as EVP of Canadian Oil Sands.  You might think that I could not hold a job but each of these entities was taken over by a another company and I left after the take over was complete.  
 
I have 2 beautiful intelligent daughters from a first marriage which dissolved after 28 years. Allison is VP at Oncolytics a biomedical  company and Christine is a scheduler at Plains Midstream.  Still waiting for grandkids but no marriages in site.
 
I am in a committed relationship with Shannon Seaman (nee MacDonald  ) who was also in our class of 69. We now spend 4 months of the year in La Quinta and balance of the year in Calgary at Shannon’s place in Heritage Pointe or at my ranch west of Millarville.  We enjoy golfing,  skiing , excercise, reading , pickle ball, and the Calgary Hunt Club. We do not hunt anything but spend the fall on horseback chasing a hunt master and beer truck.
 
Looking forward to catching up with everyone at the reunion.

Retired translator Married 3
After getting a B.A. in French Language and Literature at U of C, I came to Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, for a six-week French immersion program and I've been immersed for 47 years. My husband, Albert, is French-Canadian and we have three sons. When I first arrived in Trois-Rivieres I taught at an English elementary school (with no teaching qualifications...) and when my kids were little, I went back to university and got a degree in translation. I did free-lance work in a variety of fields (psychology, Parks Canada, nuciear power, to name a few) until I retired in 2011.

I am an avid quilter, and Albert and I enjoy travelling, cycling, skiing and pickle ball. We also love spending time with our grandkids (who speak to me in French), two of whom live in Switzerland, so we are 'forced' to go to Europe every year. Apart from Quebec politics, life is good! I look forward to seeing everyone in July!

John LILL
Retired Married 3
After Wisewood, I received a degree in Mining Engineering from Queen’s University.  Soon after University I had the great fortune to marry Phyllis Scandrett from Toronto. Happily together for the last 45 years we are proud parents of three wonderful and dynamic children and five delightful grand kids! 
Over the past 45 years our family have had the good fortune to experience life on three different continents and a host of different countries.  I have worked with a number of mining companies including RTZ, Rio Algom, Barrick Gold and BHP Billiton where I had the privilege to work with a number of talented and exceptional executive mining teams both on mining operations and development of several large mining properties.  Two years ago I retired from the working world and business travel to allow more family time and also to do some serious ocean sailing.  Phyllis and I enjoyed an extremely enjoyable time in the Mediterranean then I sailed our boat across the Atlantic to the Caribbean. We now live on the boat for the winter months where we enjoy sailing and visits from family and friends. The rest of our time is split between Toronto and our cottage in Georgian Bay.
I have fond memories of Wisewood and my classmates. I have not had much time in Calgary over the past 50 years so I am looking forward to catching up with everyone at the reunion.  I would especially like to thank the organizing committee for their time and good work to make this reunion a reality.

Commercial real estate broker Married 1
It's hard to believe 50 years has come and gone!  But having spent the past 4 months as part of the Organizing Committee, I am so very excited for July 20 to arrive! It will be a great evening - first-class but fun, classy but casual and lovely but lively. I sure hope to see as many of us get together as possible!

I've split my time the past 50 years bouncing between Edmonton and Calgary but the last 35 years here in Edmonton. I have enjoyed being a Master of being a jack-of-all-trades and my lengthy job history is proof of that. I've spent the past 14 years (and still am) as a Commercial real estate Associate Broker and don't see an end in sight. If any of you are in Edmonton and want to get together for a coffee between now and the Reunion, let's do so! noralmartin@hotmail.com or 780-499-9001.

I graduated from Queen's U in Economics and Commerce.  We lived in Pickering, ON until 1993 when we picked up the family and moved to North Vancouver to enjoy the West Coast climate and proximity to water and mountains.  I enjoy cycling, walking, reading and going to my grand kids soccer, rugby,  and baseball games and to dance recitals.  Life has been very good to me and I am looking sooo forward to seeing my dear friends from HWW.  It has been too long...........

Not sure whether or not I'll be there. Most of the kids I hung out with would be grad '70. If I can't come, meeting individuals for a coffee would probably be more comfortable for me than a big class thing. Egil and Vernon, where are you? Send Jim a MessageSend Jim a Message

Retired prmphotography.com Married 1
As declared in my bio in the 1969 Wise Wood yearbook, I did have a short career with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet. I went on to dance as a freelance performer in Vancouver and eventually made my way to New York where I danced on Broadway in the musical "Oklahoma" and worked as a choreographic assistant and dance teacher. In 1982 I moved back to Canada and married my high school beau,. Yup, you guessed it - Ian Milne. We have been together for almost 36 years. We have a beautiful daughter, Cecily, and our family lives in Toronto. Ian and I missed the last reunion, so we are really looking forward to connecting with old classmates we have not seen for 50 years. Wow! That is so weird to say that.  Send Patti a MessageSend Patti a Message

I  loved the reunion it was so special to see everyone again and reconnect. I hope we all keep in touch going forward.
 
Figured it was time to update my bio, so here goes… After graduation I left almost immediately for Israel. I was in Israel for a year and decided to stay, went into the army and served as an officer... I did a degree in microbiology at McGill and then return to Israel and went into medical school in Jerusalem at Hadassah hospital. I graduated and went into pediatrics also in Jerusalem and then transferred to hospital for sick children in Toronto. I completed graduate studies in Child and family psychiatry, worked in a developmental clinic in St. James town, and open up my own private practice in Toronto …
 
I worked in Toronto for several years specializing in psychoanalysis in cycle therapy as well as ADHD diagnosis and treatment. In 2009  I finally returned to live in Israel which I had sorely missed over the years. I have been working in Jerusalem as an ADHD specialist and I am planning to move to the north of Israel to home I am building overlooking the Mediterranean.
 
I was married for several years and divorced with one son and now two grandchildren, currently not with a special other. Life is good and I’m enjoying it to the fall

Retired Communications Consultant Married

First of all, many, many thanks to Dave, Pat, Tom, Nora, Allen, Jean, Michel, Murry, Brenda and Don for organizing our 50th reunion and tracking down so many of us with a personal invitation to attend. I am very excited to see so many familiar names on the guest list. After high school, I attended UVic, graduating a few years later as an English major who wasn’t keen to teach. In the early 70s, there weren’t too many other options but I eventually launched a career in public relations/corporate communications which allowed me to earn a living, write and travel. In the late 90s I enrolled at U of C as a part time student and earned a graduate degree in communications studies.

 

On the personal side of life, Frank and I have been married for almost 40 years – no kids, but lots of travels, fulfilling careers and just recently our third dog (of course, a cocker spaniel). We have been living in Calgary all this time and retired a few years ago. I will save the rest of my life story for a magical evening and get together with the HWW grads of 1969, just a few weeks away.

 

By the way, our June 6 graduation banquet dinner at the Calgary Inn cost the princely sum of $4 per person; the graduation dance that followed cost $2 per couple and featured a live orchestra. How times have changed!

Semi-retired Inv Banker; farmer/fisherman Committed Relationship 3
I am blessed with 3 spectacular daughters of dual CDN/UK citizenship: Jamie in London UK; Sarah in Houston/London & Calgary; Tamsin in NYC & all of the above. Their equally spectacular Mum is Debbie McBride although we are no longer together.

I currently split my time between Calgary, WestVan & the Farm as well as travelling a bit to see the daughters & grandchildren.

I started out as an engineer/economist then gravitated to the “dark side”. 

I became an M&A / Capital Markets / Corporate & Government Investment Banker. Did business in ~ 40 countries - gazillions of air miles. For a couple of decades London UK was the principal base though Calgary was on the route many months of the year.

Now most happy to stay as close to home as possible.

HWW was a fantastic home for 3 years of the glorious 60s!! Looking forward to a “catch-up” with some long-term friends.
