Chuck Venezio, lives with his wife, Joanne, in Ione, CA 95640. Email:  Upon departing Campbell High in 1950  with, I'm sure, the great joy of Mr. Hill and his staff, I ventured out into the great world. (This concluded 12+ years of education in which I attended 26 schools)  My diploma was mailed to me some months later.  I do regret (as did my mom) that I did not return for the June ceremony.  I went to work driving truck for my step-dad immediately and had a great summer until the draft became interested in my future.  In December 1950, with Don Coronado and two former SJ High buddies, I joined the Navy.  This started four great years of my life.  I went aboard the USS Des Moines (CA134) and sailed the Atlantic, Arctic, Mediterranean and Caribbean seas for two years as a Radioman.  I went to submarine school in 1953 and reported aboard the USS Wahoo (SS565) and sailed Pacific and Asian waters for two years.  I returned home in early 1955 and had a short marriage and one son, Bob and an adopted daughter, Debra.  I then attended SJ City College, received an AA degree and then to SJ State and a summer session at Santa Clara.  I regretted never finishing. I worked at Southern Pacific while attending college then drove a truck for a couple of years. In 1958, I met a beautiful blonde girl and this really changed my life style.  Joanne Woosley graduated from Los Gatos in 1952.  She had three children; Larry, Michael and Deborah (Kewt).  We were married in Sep 1959 and had two children; David and Charles (Chip).  So we ended up with yours, mine and ours.  Unfortunately, we lost Michael in 1982 at the age of 28. At this time, I thought I should get a "real job" so I got off the truck and went to work for Safeway and spent five years at the Los Gatos/ Santa Cruz Avenue and Kooser Road stores.  I left Safeway in 1965 and managed liquor stores for 14 years (West Valley Bottle Shop at Prospect & Saratoga Aves and Foothill Plaza Liquors in Los Altos)  The stores were sold so I went on the street for 22 years selling liquor and wine. (Regal Beverages - Redwood City and House of Daniels - Novato)  My territory was San Mateo, Santa Clara and Santa Cruz counties.  I supplemented my income by bartending in the local area.  Joanne retired as a senior escrow officer after 25 years with Old Republic Title.  We recently sold our home on Ridgeley Drive in Campbell and our "get away" home in Capitola and moved to a new home on Castle Oaks Golf Course in Ione, CA.  We enjoy traveling, cruising, entertaining and visiting unknown locations.  Joanne enjoys gardening, antiques and working on our home.  We recently visited Oregon.  It was ďMy 50th StateĒ - never set out to accomplish this feat - all in all, it has been pretty good ride.  I am still active in the United States Sub Vets and I have been trying to get a ride on a "Nuke" (Nuclear Submarine) but my time is running out.  My best to you all and I hope to see you soon.(Jan 2003)
