Moved to the San Francisco Bay Area in January of 1975 and I'm still in awe of the weather, lack of bugs and humidity and so many things to do. Ski in the mountains one day and surf in the ocean the next. We feel truly blessed to love living part of the year in California and part in Hawaii. The wonderful midwest people, especially those in and around Crystal Lake will always hold a warm spot in my heart and Cher and I always look forward to our reunions and one or both of us have enjoyed them for the last 45 years but for many reasons we will miss our 50th. We wish all class members love and a good time, we will be thinking of you.

Son Ryan works for Amazon Web Services and lives on the beach in San Francisco with his very smart and beautiful wife, Anne, who works for a law firm in SF. They met in college, married in 2014 and are now proud parents of Stella and Heidi and

School Story

So many great memories! I spent a lot of time over at the Muellers having met Larry and Linda at South School soon after they moved to Crystal Lake from Arlington Heights. Learned to play Monopoly with all the Muellers, played football in our back yards, rode our bikes (I had a Schwinn Corvette, muthafucka!) everywhere, went to the "show" often and I'll never forget spending $1.19 on the 1959 Chicago White Sox color glossy picture of that Pennant winning team at Woolworth's.

When we got older I often double dated with both Larry and Linda and I'll never forget one funny incident. Larry was going out with a hot new Italian girl at school, Maria, who didn't speak real good english and understood less. Once after a show the four of us got into the car and Larry turned to Maria and said "I need the antenna to start the car so please get it out of your purse" Maria kept looking, it seemed like a painfully long time for something she had no idea of, just kept searching and searching.

I'll also never forget Mr. Mueller towing us behind their Toronado on a toboggan in winter with a rope way too short attached to the bumper and going down Broadway!

Finally, I remember the many times we double dated and went to the drive ins. If Crystal Drive In didn't have our favorite movie we would have no problem going to Dundale and almost always had a cold case of malt liquor inside the trunk often with the second couple in there keeping watch. That's 6 six packs so each guy would get 2 six packs plus whatever our dates didn't drink. We threw the cans out the window around our car and often got the other couple out of the trunk before it got dark. Never got in an accident coming home from the drive ins and that's what makes me believe He had plans for us.

Happy Birthday Rono and may you have as many more as you want. As we discussed you may be spending your special day fishing for Crappie. That might entail ice fishing this year! HB!

My deepest sympathies to all of Jane's family. I too will always remember Jane's wonderful smile. Seems like every time I ran into her she beamed a beautiful smile of Love and friendship that lit up the room and just made me feel warm and wanted and content. Oh how I would love just one more of those smiles but I have no doubt Jane is busy spreading her love and warmth from Heaven to so many now. 

Just think of her now; it will brighten your day!

Got email about this being updated but don’t see that here. Please call me the minute you really retire so I can light up a Cuban in your honor. I retired when 56 and have loved not having someone else telling me what to do-except my CPA, a Northwestern grad. Love ya, Kingfish
