Dave,

Hope you recovered - dehydrathion can sneak up on you. The climate here in WY is very dry and you have hydrate with any physical activity.

I see Don E. Rose is living in Moline according to hs profile and after a little exploring lives on 1st St. The following are a couple phone #'s (309) A.C.'s 797-5412 and 764-2788.

We used to live a few doors away from the Rose's when they lived on 12th Ave. & 53rd St.

The BB player he played with at NMU was Mel Daniels. It finally came to me because I went Black Hawk JC a couple years before gong to U of WY. Keith Smueles has a cabin a few lots down on the Big Laramie River and we have talked about when he played BB at the Hawk, Burlington JC came to Moline for a game. They had a loaded line up with notables - Mel Daniels and Bobby Jo Hill. Keith said he knew the Hawks were in trouble when Mel Daniels hit his head on the rim in warm ups.. Bobby Jo went off for 50+ that night.

The Great Spirit Willing will see you at the 80th!
Jerry,
UW Cowboys shoud have a top 25 team this year. Keith has been doing their stats at the games for years.

Ken,

Good to see you at the 60th (a photo from 60th and one of Geri & I at home attached). Enjoyed the conversation about how we have passed through the last 60 years - the good, the bad, and the ugly. I like you have some RVN demons, but also some good friends. Am going to try to complete "A Bright Shining Lie" by Neil Sheehan this long WY winter (780 +/- pages). It was highly recommended by a "Jarhead" RVN Grunt Friend. Will give you a short opine when I am done. And thanks to you and Ken Storm's examples will work on my MHS Class of "62" Life Bio this winter Hope to see at the next MHS Class get together. Go Maroon, Be Safe, Jerry

Jerry W Soukup has left an In Memory comment for Jim Seeley.
Nov 25, 2020 at 4:03 PM

I did not know Jim Seeley well, but I wanted to express my condolences to his family. I also wanted to express my good fortune to be part of one of Jim’s early demonstrations of his athletic ability. As a 5th grader at Ben Franklin Elementary, I tried out for the McKinley / Franklin baseball team and managed to be picked as the starting left fielder. The season progressed and we did well going undefeated. I had the chance to see some excellent athletes i.e. Jim Marsh and Jim Simon to mention two that I can remember. We won our league and were scheduled to play for the Moline Elementary School Baseball Championship. We were to play Irving, who I learned from Keith Smueles (MHS Class of “61”) a neighbor here in Laramie, WY, was where Jim Seeley went to Elementary School. The memory is slipping, but here is my remembrance. McKinley–Franklin versus Irving was a game of two legendary MHS future athletes - Jim Seeley, pitching for Irving and Curt Cook, pitching for McKinley-Franklin. I don’t remember the final score, but do remember M-F won the game. I also remember with these two (2) great pitchers dueling, it was a tense and low scoring game. Rest in Peace - Jim

Jerry W Soukup has left an In Memory comment for Huel Boyer.
Jun 08, 2020 at 6:27 PM

Huel was a very quiet reserved person.   As part of the east side 53rd St. area, we both attended Ben Franklin Elementary.  There were three families in the area where we lived with tree sons - Boyer's and ours were two of them.  We didn't always get along, but I remember Huel as always a calming peace maker, who could de-escalate youthful dissention.  

We moved down 53rd in the 60's and didn't see as much of Huel except in school.  He was at both my parents funeral home visitations when they passed.  

Rest in Peace Huel,

Jim, Mike, Tony, and Jerry had the good fortune of knowing Steve better than I.   My meomories pretty much come from Coolidge, MHS, and BHJC.  Steve was a person one always enjoyed seeing, no matter the situation.  His positive outlook and humor were contagious.  He would make your day more enjoyable no matter the weather.  Rest in Peace - Steve.

Tom was in a number of my MHS classes, but I didn’t know him that well, other than he was a bright, approachable, friendly and fun loving person who appeared to enjoy school.  But Tom left before graduation to join the Air Force, for what I learned later were very personal reasons.

Didn’t see him until about 1965 – 66, after his military service was completed and he was back in the QCA.  He had trained and worked in computers in the Air Force and had completed his GED.   We had some great times that summer including a number of “party hardy” episodes. 

I remember a time a number of us went to the Muscatine “sand pits” and had a day fin in the sun, swimming and enjoying a beautiful summer day.  Tom was an excellent swimmer.  I remember in a game of keep-a-way, that if you had the ball, you wanted to watch for this large swell of water coming your way, for in one motion Tom would breach the surface, grab the ball with one hand, and shove you underwater with the other.  He was a force.

Lost contact with Tom over the years, but saw him at one of the MHS Reunions, which allowed us to renew our friendship.  I managed to see Tom about a half-a-dozen times over the years.  He worked for IBM and retired as a Division Vice President, moved to FL and continued to work in IT services.  He got his pilot’s license and was very proficient flyer, who really understood the computerization of aviation.

I last saw Tom and Barbara at their Airport Community Home in Ocala.  He was still flying, riding motorcycles, and enjoying life!

Tom will be missed.

Jerry,
