LOST: James "Jim" Terlesky - Last known address: Oklahoma City (or environs). Last known assignment: Analyst, Tinker ASC, 1966 to 1973. Also believed to be from Michigan originally. He may have retired and settled in the Oklahoma City area. No further information - Contact: webmaster - May 11, 1999

Jim, was still working  for Western Union (GSD) at Ford Area Space
during the Autodin II Contract,  He was back in Mclean after that.
After our group was sold to American Satelite, he was still in
programming, and worked, I believe in Rockville, Md. Our last
conversation was in the late 80s or early 90s, we chatted about how
the Contel/GTE merger would affect him.  That conversation was in
Chantilly, Va. Surely someone from the Chantilly area would have some later
information. He never mentioned any desire to return to Oklahoma.

Harpie Pettiet

FOUND: Living in Virginia. The address was lost during the ITL1 server crash. 1999. No immediate contact made. webmaster - January 02, 2001

FOUR11 (Yahoo) SAYS:

Lowell, bonnie Stevens
261 Wyngate Dr
Frederick, MD 21701-6257
(301)662-8644

webmaster note: maybe some Autodiner who lives in the 301 area could call and inquire if we got the right fellow? A search for an email address resulted in "There are no matches for the search you submitted."

So I don't think Frank has an email.  However, like the WUALP webmaster, I have sent email to Steve261@aol.com and received no reply.  I wonder who that is??  I wish there was some way to put in an email address and search for the owner....  I would like to get in touch with Steve, as some of you know we were roommates in Hawaii, it was he who dated a phone operator and set me up for a blind date with the operator's friend -- a young lady named Luella.. Does anyone remember from Norton ASC if his (Frank, "Steve") wife then was named Bonnie?  (See above.)
