Comments:

I moved from Wichita to San Francisco to go to San Francisco State University and I went there until My mother shamed me into graduating so in 1979 I got my BA in Theatre Arts with management being my emphasis. I worked long enough in the theatre to find that it wasn't quite my cup of tea and moved into retail management in upscale clothing stores. I was introduce to my wife by Gaylon Kerr in 71, married her in 72 and despite me being me we have been married 37 years. I lived in San Francisco 16 years, moved to Portland, Oregon and lived there for 14 years. In 2001my wife and I moved back to the Bay area and have been here 8 years with most of that time in Fremont. We both work for FEMA, me in the field and Aileen in the office. I spend around 9 months a year on the road throughout the states. It can be lonely but it can have its rewards in all the different people you get to meet. We plan to drive to the reunion in 2010 so as to stop and see family and friends along the way. We plan to spend 5 days in Wichita this time to touch base with friends and family. Time slip pass you so quickly that some of the conversation you had planned to happen will not be so becuse of death. I have finally came to the realization that I am growing older and so is every one I care for. I like to believe that I am the same as I was when I was 18 by the best way to know that is to be with people who knew you when you were 18.
I have just turned 69 and feel pretty good about being here, I'm reasonable popular with my grandchildren and that's a good thing! Covid-19 kinda forced into retirement but I'm looking for something else to do. I'm happy and have been married 49 years this June 22, 2021. I didn't know my wife liked me so much! It is sad that Calhoun,Guice and Joel are gone, good dudes that should have become very old men. Memories they gave us all. North was a great place to go and the happiness we all share will live on in our children because feelings that good can never be extinguished.

School Story:

Do anyone remember me on the journalism float dressed as an Indian and my camp fire blanket catching on fire over the campfire that was suppose to be non-flammable?
Virginia Kellogg and I were on the intercity student council and we gave the school superintendent a bad case of heartburn but we did have a pretty cool student lounge with a jukebox. Fresh fruit in the vending machine our student government was pretty cool for 1970.

What Junior High School did you attend?

JOHN MARSHAL

What Elementary School did you attend?

Waco,Skinner,Dumbar and Cloud.

James who went by Darryl was my buddy and group member in KC and the Marvels a neighborhood dancing group who later form the band Colored People in which Darryl played the keyboards. He had a sly sense of humor and drove a corvair. We had many adventures performing in Wichita "chitlins circle clubs". His mom Mrs.  Henly was our manager and the most positive person I have ever known.  James stay thin his entire life, how? No one knows. He was a good guy, a fun guy and we shared many memories together at North. His sudden death caught all of us by surprise, he ws never ill, his family, sister Jackie and brother Larry will miss a guy who never said a unkind word about anyone. I will miss him most because he was one of my friend with many of the best  links to my teenage years. The planned conversations of old men will never happen now, he's gone but never forgotten.

GLEN, my man!!! I see you're going to the Reunion, and I was wondering how are you getting there ... Plane, train, or drive? Well, you don't know this, but I've moved back to the place where I was born, Las Cruces, NM, and would it be too far out of your way to pick me up? I could help with fuel and all. Driving that distance alone isn't smart. I may have to fly. I'll have my therapy dog with me. You can call me att 575-400-74008, or text me at "slaphappykat@gmail.com". I really want to see you and your family! I'm alone, except food my dog. Grandkids are in Kansas. Holler, lol, sweetie?

I've known Don since the fourth grade and never knew him to not be a complete gentleman even though he was even then the best athlete in the school. Always cool, always the best in sports, big,fast and strong but never one to put it in your face. Many a games when the crowd riff was Calhounnn! He brought a lot of pride to North High and the only class member to play pro football. Never saw him after high school but in the fifty years after, never heard a single rumor about him. It is sad when good men leave us if for no reason other than that there is not a whole lot of them. Some of the best memories I have of High School include Calhoun. The memories still linger even though the memory maker has left us. They say no one dies as long as they are remembered, I will always remember Don Calhoun.

Hey folks! Remember when Joel was the first kid to grow a mustache at John Marshall?

There are some people that are born cool and instantly likeable. Joel was the best athlete of our class. The pride of John Marshall. At North he held his own, he wasn't "Don Calhoun"but he was no slouch! He was cool in high school, and let us not forget those were the "sixties". There were a lot of pretender and it was not him. Joel was the same guy at fifty as he was at fifteen. We had our moment but we both grew beyond it and became better men. Joel was a man of character and a overall good guy. I will miss not having him at our fiftieth class reunion, he was a big part of us and we are less without him. I waited to comment to give others who were closer to say their piece because I wasn't a close friend but I always enjoyed his company and he was a man I respected. I will miss him.

Willie was a cool  guy with quick wit and a "man in charge personality" I knew him well all three years at North High, a pretty fastrunner and better looking than the aveage guy. I never saw Morgan after gradutation which I regret because he was an intersting person. He will be missed by his family and friends, he was a man that was interesting and fun to know.

Cris, was a nice person with subtle good humor. I can never remember her at odds with anyone. I always thought of her as a "good chick." Travel well on your new journey.
