John & Clea Taylor
John & Clea Taylor (see their picture!!!) have lived in Palmdale since moving from Sunland in 1972, when John was transferred with Lockheed.   Their address is 38755 Sage Tree St., Palmdale, CA 93551, phone (661) 273-0304.   "We are enjoying retirement and keeping active with church work and grandchildren.

Linda Taylor Madison
Linda and Chuck Madison live in Canyon Country, where she has been since leaving Sunland-Tujunga.  Their combined family has grown up, so kids come and go, between school and missions, and the oldest is married.   Life is good, even though she admits to being a member of the middle-aged club!  Their address is 28044 Winterdale Dr., Canyon Country 91351, phone  (661) 252-2682.  Since our marriage in 1988, we have had enough experiences with our blended family to write a book!  At one time, we had 7 under the same roof (Chuck has 5, and I have 3).  The "merge" included 5 boys, all with different names, two girls named Jennifer, and we both had cats named Sammy.  Nobody wanted to change their names, so they became "Sammy White" and "Sammy Gray"!  That was a good way to resolve our first family conflict!  The three Swaner kids [picture] are keeping busy:  Jeff & Jamie [picture] live in Northridge and own and operate a beautiful salon called "epic", located on Ventura Blvd., in Encino. They are a hard-working, adorable couple. Go see them and come out with great hair!  Jennifer (27) served a mission in Scotland, which she absolutely loved.  She graduated with honors in English and Sociology from the University of Utah, and is now a teacher at Hart High School, in Valencia. Seems like she should still be a student!  She loves the beach and lives in Ventura, where she can enjoy it every day!  Brian (23) served in the Calgary, Canada mission. What a great experience and a special time in his life. He is a student at BYU, in Provo, Utah, and continues to amaze us with his focus and great grades.  He is a great example of getting serious after high school!  Our next son, David Madison (22) returned in March from serving a mission in Macon, Georgia.  It was a perfect place for a kick-back guy with a great smile, who loves everybody!  He is living with us, working, and trying to figure out what he wants to do for the rest of his life!  Danny Madison (20) also is back living at home.  He is always busy at work and working hard on plans for his future.  The three boys [picture] grew up to be true buddies and brothers.  We have one little adorable granddaughter, Taylor (what a great first name!) [picture] who is three years old and lives in the Bay Area , and one new little grandson who also lives there, so we don't get to see them near enough.  Chuck does commercial refrigeration and air conditioning--you can see his expertise at most major markets.  I work about five minutes from home, managing an insurance adjusting company.  It's nice to not have to commute!

John Taylor (Jr.)
John is living in Fort Collins, Colorado, with his wife, Linda, and their two children, Sara-14 and Michael-11.   Their telephone number is (970) 223-4684.   John works as an Information Technology Manager for Hewlett-Packard Co.  Additional information can be found on their web page: 

Paula Taylor Jones
My husband Jay and I live in Quartz Hill, California with our 2 year old little boy, Dylan Jones, and our older chldren from my previous marriage: Jason Willis 19; Charla Willis 18; Jeremy Willis 14; and Robynne Willis 12.  In adddition to raising five great kids, and being active in our church, we also have our own pool business which keeps us extremely busy.  In our spare time, (what spare time?) we try to have lots of fun and enjoy our life.

Steve Taylor
After spending 18 months in solitary I was able to join the general population and gain new work skills in the prison laundry.  Good behavior allowed me to get an early release and . . . (Uh, maybe I should start over.)  I've lived in Bakersfield since 1988 and work as a Marketing Director for an RV dealership chain.  I finally got married in 1996 to my lovely wife, Sandie, and have two beautiful daughters, Melissa (nine last August) and Alison (three last July) and you can see their picture by clicking here.
