RECENT: Continues to exercise love for opera and music in SoCal, including Orange County School of the Arts program.
NOTABLE: He and his wife, Marybelle, big Chapman supporters: Italian Studies program, Musco Center for arts, music, nursing school at Brandman University. Prefers low profile but always good for a quip or quote about age, hard work—he heads into office in his 90s.
