I've been married for 30 years this June, and have four kids. Our three daughters have all been through Penn State, and our one son is a senior in high school. We have been living in Audubon, PA for the past 28 years. We became grandparents two years ago. I work at Independence Blue Cross in Philadelphia, and am currently doing mobile phone architecture and development.

I'm a practicing Philadelphia civil trial lawyer and partner at the firm of Kline & Specter, PC. I'm traveling to Italy this spring with my wife, Gwen, to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. I live in Villanova, Penn. and I have three kids, Eric age 21, who attends college in Chicago; Jeff age 19, who attends Penn State at University Park and is a brother of Delta Sig; and my daughter Jen, age 16, who attends Harriton High School. I still enjoy playing squash, scuba diving, skiing, mountain biking and motocross riding. We also have a place in Longport, N.J., so I've been active with water sporting activities such as and jet skiing and fishing. Although I'm a licensed pilot, I've been too busy to do much flying lately.

I am a PSU Delt grad with a BA in General Arts & Sciences. I loved my Delt experience. Post-graduation, I worked for four different companies doing four different jobs. I finally decided to put my degree to use as a.....jeweler. I was lucky; my Mom had been a designer/fabricator of sterling silver jewelry for 30 years before I joined up. Now it's been 20 years of jewelry making and I've not found a better job yet. I sell our work at the People's Choice show in Boalsburg every year, so I do get up to Penn State country a good bit. Brothers who are interested can see my work at www.reflectionsinsilver.com . Pictures of my family and I are on the site also. Delta Tau Delta didn't teach me how to create jewelry but the many life lessons learned there have helped me be successful in good economies and bad. Wouldn't trade it for anything!

Michael Cherubini '82 (115 Marcil Ln., Hampstead, NC 28443-8930; This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) Thanks for the email and I hope everyone at the Shelter is doing well. I opened my second practice location in Leland, NC about six weeks ago. It is in the new and growing coastal community of Brunswick Forest. If any classmates of mine or interested brothers would like to contact me, try www.cherubsmiles.com.

Class of 1980 

Bob Penzelik '80 (3786 Wayne Rd., Munhall, PA 15120-3069; This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) All my brothers from the late 70's called me Ponzie. Although I graduated with a degree in Education, I quickly realized there weren't many teaching opportunities and went on to get a Computer and Business degree. After living and working in Center City Philadelphia for ARA Services (now ARAMark) for a few years I moved back to Pittsburgh and spent the better part or my career working for Federated Investors (16 years) and now UPMC the past 11 years.

My son Joe is currently a sophomore Biology Major right there in Happy Valley. He loves it in State College and is doing extremely well. He hopes to go on to medical school if he can only get through O-Chem. I've tried to get him to walk out to Hamilton Ave and visit the Shelter but he hasn't heard of any Rush activities so he hasn't had the opportunity.

My daughter, Erin, is a high school senior and the captain of her cheerleading squad. As you may guess, Penn State (University Park) is high on her list of options for next year but has applications into several schools and will weigh her options later this year.

Tracy and I have been married for 28 years and she is still putting up with me for some unknown reason. She is the best thing that ever happened to me and we couldn't be happier.

I've attached a few pictures of Joe and Erin as they grew up with the Lion, and a fourth of the four of us from this past summer at the beach.

I have been in the jewelry business for over 20 years now. Any delts who may be up for the 2010 PSU Artsfest should stop by the Peoples Choice show that runs simultaneous to the PSU show. I'll have a booth and would love to see anyone who wants to pop by.

Well, let's see, I just retired after 21 years in the Marine Corps. I went out as a LtCol and spent the last 16 years flying EA-6B's. Prior to that I was an Infantry Officer. Currently I am working at Dynamic Analytics and Test in Arlington, VA. I've got two sons in High School and still have that old Mach 1 of mine...restored now. I am now close enough and have time to get up to Penn State. Hope to run into some of you guys.

Van Baker... still rockin'

After nearly 13 years at Mellon Bank, I took a new position with CONSOL Energy Inc. in January in Pittsburgh PA and enjoy it. I'm single with 2 great dogs, no kids. I haven't been to the Shelter in years but would like to make it back for a game or two sometime. I still play guitar but haven't woken any pledges lately. I'd love to reconnect with any Delts from my era! Anyone up for a control party? I'll post some photos on the PSUDelts site sometime soon if you guys promise not to litigate. Look me up!

Diana, Tyler and I still live in St. Petersburg Florida. After the private investment firm I was a shareholder in was sold to a large Canadian company I took sometime off to hang out with Tyler, fish and work on my golf game. I then joined Raymond James & Associates. Raymond James is one of the premier financial services firms in the country and is based right here in St. Petersburg. I am the branch manager for the downtown St. Petersburg branch. I love my job since it allows me to work closely with some of the finest financial advisors around and also maintain a select group of clients. I help my clients navigate the complexities of their investment and legacy planning needs.
Both Diana and I are active in many charities and organizations in town and absolutely love St. Petersburg. If any Delts come to the Tampa Bay area, give me a yell and we will be glad to show you around.
I get up to the house about every other year, usually with Alan Hubbell and the RV and always parked on the front yard. Alan and I have talked about a mid to late 80's reunion on an off football weekend early enough to play golf. Any interest?
