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.

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.

Great picture, Woodie. I agree you look very much like a class president should. More importantly, Woodie, you were obviously the right choice for that position. I don't know of many other class presidents who have lived up to their responsibilities for so many years. Thank you very much. Just one of the many reasons I'm proud of MHS Class of 1962!

Rick Anderson has a birthday today.

Holy smokes, Skip, you sure have a full family tree. And it sounds like all is well for you. Thanks for the update. Always good to hear about you. Did you take a look at the reunion pictures. Fortunately we have been able to get back for all of them except when we were in the USAF (5 year reunion) so we kind of kept up with appearance changes and know who is whom. Take care, Skip. Always enjoyed you.

Rick,

Am terrible at checking comments and will try to do better. Geri and I do like the west after 2 years at BHJC, went to University of Wyoming and graduated with B.S.C.E. It was RVN as a USMC Helicopter pilot and when I got out came back to the Rockies. We retired along the Big Laramie River, 30 SW of Laramie, in 2010 and try to stay active.

Did participate in the WY SO (small pond) last year and did OK. Trying not to let my ego get in front of my physical abilities and am training for some T&F events this year hoping to qualify for the National SO in ABQ in 2019. Trying to make the body do things it hasn't done for awhile.

Hope all is well and if you are "Roamin Wyoming" give us a yell! God willing will be back for the 60th in 2022!

Go Pokes,
Jerry,

That is a nice comment, Penny. One that expresses what a lot of us feel about Mike.

Peggy Willey Clendenin sadly reported that Cheryl passed away in early 2016.  I remember Cheryl as always being pleasant, personable, and friendly.  And she was obviously very smart!  Sorry to hear of her passing.
