Gail Piserchia Beach

Here is a brief bio of Dave and myself.

Dave and I met at work (Western Electric back in late 1978 or 79).  We were married in May, 1982. 

I worked almost 30-yrs. For Western Electric, AT & T and Telcordia combined.  My job was downsized in Nov. 2002 and we decided to move to the shore area. 

I have been living in Waretown at Greenbriar Oceanaire since 2003.

Itís a beautiful active adult community for 48-yrs and older.  I like the community but itís a bit far from friends. 

I have a sister in Brick and my brother in Union Beach, NJ. 

I work part-time (3-days a work) for a physical therapist in Toms River. I also am a Sr. Consultant for BeautiControl SPA & Skin Care company located in Dallas, TX. 

 I also do SPAís and skin care  part-time.

 My husband is retired from Lucent Technology.  I have no children, but Dave has (2) wonderful adult children from a previous marriage. 

Michelle and David who live in Bayonne.

I love pets and love my little dog, Amber.  We like to travel when we can. 

 We finally saw Italy, in 2008 when we took a wonderful 14-day cruise. 

 Dave loves sports, especially football, and movies.  When heís not watching sports, heís watching a movie.

I hope that is enough information for now.  Looking forward to our reunion. 

Itís been long overdue since I saw my 8th grade classmates.

 Gail & Dave Beach

John McEvoy

I entered our Sacred Heart Cathedral Grammer school class in the 7th grade. 

I transferred from St Francis Xavier School near Schools Stadium after moving.

I grew up in the Stephan Crane projects on Franklin Ave and then moved to Lake Street between Park Ave and Bloomfield Ave.

After graduation I went to Essex Catholic High from '68 to '72.

After graduation from Essex I went right to work with the Newark Police Dept. 

I graduated the Police Academy in 1973 and was a Newark Police officer.

Anyone who remembers, I walked the beat every evening on Bloomfield Ave from Broadway to Lake St from Jan 1974 to mid 1976.

In 1980 I left the NPD and joined the Port Authority.  I am presently a Lieutenant with the Port Authority Police Department and will celebrate my 30th year there in October. 

I was lucky enough to survive the 911 attacks, which is the Port Authority's home and HQ, 

 but 37 officers who I worked with everyday and were my friends did not. 

I plan to retire in the summer of 2011.

I married Karen Farese from Newark.  She was from Lake St by way of Broadway, and she graduated Girls VoTech in 1977.

We have been married for 25 years and have 2 kids.  Kelly 21, who is presently in Fordham University.

John 10 who goes to St Dominicks in town.

We have lived in Brick Township NJ for 24 years
