Comments:

We split our year between The Villages, Florida, in the winter and Holland, Michigan, in the summer.
After MHS I went to the University of Dubuque, played football and graduated with a Business Administration degree in 1966. Married Sylvia (Olson)(MHS '62) on August 6, 1966 and then went into the USAF from '66 to '71. Came out a Captain. Worked for John Deere for 30+ years. Retired since 2004. Served two terms as a Moline alderman. Served on Moline Plan Commission and on the Moline Police and Fire Commission.

School Story:

I met Sylvia in Miss Hulse's Chemistry class our junior year. We first went out right before our senior year. We kept seeing each other through college, even though Sylvia went to Western Illinois University and I went to Dubuque. We both graduated in 1966 and got married in August of that year. Good ol' Miss Hulse.

In our Coolidge Jr. Hi days Bill and I had an interest in model railroads and hung out in a hobby shop on 23rd Avenue across from Hafners.  Over the years we'd run into each other and Bill was always friendly and outgoing.  I believe the last time I talked with him was at a JD Golf Classic Tournament.  As with so many of our classmates, Bill will be in our hearts and part of our memories of the good ol' days.

Miss Steckel was my history teacher when I was, I believe, a sophomore.  It must have been really early in her career in education.  By the time our two kids went through MHS she had gone into administration and was assistant principal before her retirement.  Sylvia got to know her after they had both retired from Moline High School and both attended retiree functions.  Serious, conscientious, and friendly were good descriptives for her, in my experience.

When I was at the University of Dubuque, one of the guys on our golf team found out I was from Moline asked me if I knew Jim.  His name was Bill Kramer from Cliinton, Iowa, and he knew Jim through Mississippi Valley Conference play.  Bill said Jim was well known in the conference for his dominate play.  Another proud "Maroon Moment".  Rest in Peace.

Sylvia and I are so sorry to hear that Roxanne passed away.
She lived so bravely with this for so long. Her store for survivors and her willingness to share her story gave support to many others and was an inspiration to us all. Throughout it all, Roxanne remained the life of the party. That's how we'll remember her.
