1961--Married Pat 8/29/64--Children: Mark (31) Geri
(30) Grandson Alan (7 yrs. old). Parma policeman for
24 years, retired in 1990 due to injuries received in a gun
fight--enjoys doing investment research on the computer, playing
bingo, going on cruises (saved the life of another passenger on
one of the cruises) and getting together with other retired
policemen to talk about the good old days.
Mark and Geri are adopted. We got Mark on Christmas Eve
when he was 11 days old, and they gave us only one days notice,
What A Christmas That Was!!! Geri was 10 months old.
We didn't even ask for a second child, but the family that had
her could not keep her for some reason, and all of our paper
work was there from Mark...so they gave us a call. And now
they are too old to send back!

was dedicated to Karen on July 4, 2001, which would have been
Karen's 59th birthday.
The following article appeared in the Jan.-Feb. 2001 issue of the
West Tech Alumna is Remembered
Karen (Krach) Privitera, '60, will live on
in a special memorial donation made by her family to Kids Cove
playground in Lakewood, Ohio. Karen was an award-winning
teacher who passed away in 1995. Her husband, Angelo, '58
and children Anthony, Michael, and Karen Lynn made the donation so
that her legacy of 24 years of dedicated service in the Lakewood
school system would live on for many years. She was named
Grant Elementary School "Teacher of the Year" in
1981. She was president of the Lakewood High School
Boosters, founded the Gold Girls Mothers Club, organized
fund-raising for the athletics program, and was a founding member
of the Lakewood Animal Shelter. Angelo was a Lakewood H.S.
teacher and served as the head football coach from 1971-74.
