Welcome to the website for the Defiance High School Class of 1965.  I will be continually updating this website as I accumulate information - much of the information which I am hoping will be provided by classmates.

Please forward anything that you have that you would like to see posted and I will attempt to get it uploaded to the site.  Portions of this website are interactive and allow you to post things like profiles, comments, photos, messages to classmates, etc. directly.  Music is highlighted in this website, with separate playlists created for each section in which I am allowed to add a playlist - enjoy the concerts.  Check back often to keep up with the changes.  

Detailed information and photographs from the 50th class reunion will be provided as quickly as I can upload them.  If you have some photos from the 50th Class Reunion, the Veterans' Welcome Home Reception, 70th Birthday Party, or from other life activities that you are willing to share, please send them to me as attachments to e-mail at my e-mail address,,  and I will find a place to showcase them on this site.

I hope everyone has had a happy, healthy, and productive life - and it was great seeing all of you at the reunion and the birthday party.

All the best.

Mike Easley
