Yes! Attending Reunion
Your life since graduation:

I spent a few years in the navy. Moved to Australia for awhile where I worked as a printer and met my wife Joan. We have lived in the Puget Sound area of Washington since our marriage in 1968. I am retired from the Snohomish County Assessor's Office and my wife is a retired math teacher.

Currently we are snow-birds living in Lake Stevens Washington in the summer and Desert Hot Springs California in the winter.

God has been good to us.

School Story:

To gain access to the school library you needed a pass issued by a teacher. I presume this was to keep kids from using it as a general hang out. My love of reading demanded that I have free use therefore I forged my own passes complete with the signature of head librarian Mrs. Firth.

Needless to say I was eventually found out and called into Mr. Griffen's office who had one of my forgeries sitting between us on his desk. His reprimand included the forecast that because of this I would someday end up spending my life in prison, a prediction that still hasn't come to be.

Travel/ Places you've visited.

I have been all over the world - too many places to list.

Current Hobbies or Sports you enjoy.

I lead a very active lifestyle, hiking, caving whitewater and traveling abroad with my wife.

Jim Harp has left an In Memory comment for Louis Schwanenflugel.
Jul 28, 2015 at 8:33 PM

Louie's path used to cross mine periodically from about the forth grade through the end of high school. The kids in our neighborhood which was the area around Ralston between Old County Road and the freeway all called him Louie or Mickey. Mickey is what his parents called him.
 
He used to claim that he was descended from German aristocracy and that his legal name was something like "Baron Louis Dritte Von Schwanenflugel III".
 
I remember his folks bought him a brand new motor scooter when he was about twelve years old. He would occasionally ride it around when his folks were away and hope the cops didn't catch him or the neighbors wouldn't rat him out. No doubt there was some jealousy amongst the kids because of that.
 
The last time I saw him was when I visited him in Santa Cruz where he was batching it in a small rental unit near the amusement park and working as a fork lift driver.
