Harold Pierce - this is a voice out of the past.  When you were stationed at Randolph - we had a blind date.  We didn't know it at the time that we had gone to high school together.  I hope you are doing well.

Hay Danny McCoy, good to hear you're doing well. I remember that to die for '57 Chevy you had. It was the envy of Sam Houston boys. You got it right "God is good." I'm living in Warda, TX where I manage a Christian campgrounds & retreat center. Been here 8 years now. My wife of 52 years went to be with Jesus on January 30, 2021. She's not lost because I know where she is. Keep the faith my friend. Blessings Randy Tolman '67.

RAINBOW ROLLER RINK ... Spent many hours there, it was a passion of mine.y skating partner was Dickie Phillips. We met again years later. We had both saved our skates and outfits from competition. It was great to share old memories. Silly but this stirred up a desire to skate again ... Ha! Probably just bust my butt!!!

Liz, Les was my father and he owned Rainbow back then. Dickie, John Allen, Herb and many others worked for us. Dickie and John bought the rink many years later. John actually owned a Rainbow Roller Rink in Conroe till his death couple years ago. Don't know if you remember the Pettegrew family but my partner was Sheryl Kay. Was your pro Mr Kennedy or one of the others. Many many good memories going in circles.

Diane Grayson (Goloby) (1971)

My brother, Mike Grayson, class of '65, passed away May 19, 2021 from a long illness. His wife Linda Brown Grayson '66, preceded him in death April 2020. They have two daughters, Jamie Grayson and her son Max, and Karen Grayson Kostor and her husband Dave Kostor.

We are grateful to Karen and Dave for their diligent care of Mike and Linda for the past few years, keeping them together at home, and being there with them when they each passed from this life. Their dedication is appreciated by family and friends.

Mike played football at Sam Houston as a quarterback, and baseball with the local teams, the Colt 45s and the Red Sox. He drove his 60s Volkswagon Beetle loaded with his 9 foot surf board on the roof rack, and surfed the beaches of Galveston and Surfside on many weekends, and a few school days!

In August 1968, Mike married Linda Brown '66, and he soon joined the Marines. They were stationed at Camp Lejeune for the rest of his service where their daughter Jamie was born. Mike was a sharpshooter and was on the Marine Corps Rifle Team where he won many competitions. When his stint was done, Mike, Linda, Jamie, and poodle Sean, headed back to Houston where Mike attended the University of Houston for a Bachelors in Accounting, and later a Masters. Their second child, Karen, was born and they lived in Katy, Texas.

Mike's Sam Houston High relatives include cousins Carol Grayson Buchanan '62 and her husband Tommy Buchanan '62, Duane Grayson '68, Bill Grayson, and sister Diane Grayson Goloby '71. He will be missed by family, friends, and Sam Houston classmates.

Diane, thank you for letting me know.. I have good memories of your brother at SH and playing summer baseball. Mike was a solid person. Always with a spontaneous smile and a kind demeanor. The mention of Mike evokes an instataneous erasure of years. Thank you for sharing a snapshot of Mikes life and family. Mike is now in our furure.

Kathy Culpepper (Gunderson) (1968)

Thanks to all who have served and are serving this beautiful country. And especially those Sam Houston Tigers who made the ultimate sacrifice.
NEVER FORGET
 
In Your Honor

Unselfishly, you left your fathers and your mothers,

You left behind your sisters and your brothers.
Leaving your beloved children and wives,

You put on hold, your dreams-your lives.
On foreign soil, you found yourself planted

To fight for those whose freedom you granted.
Without your sacrifice, their cause would be lost

 But you carried onward, no matter the cost.

Many horrors you had endured and seen.

Many faces had haunted your dreams.
You cheered as your enemies littered the ground;

 You cried as your brothers fell all around.

When it was over, you all came back home,

Some were left with memories to face all alone;
Some found themselves in the company of friends

 As their crosses cast shadows across the land.

Those who survived were forever scarred

Emotionally, physically, permanently marred.
Those who did not now sleep eternally

 'Neath the ground they had given their lives to keep free.

With a hand upon my heart, I feel The pride and respect; my reverence is revealed
In the tears that now stream down my upturned face

 As our flag waves above you, in her glory and grace.
Freedom was the gift that you unselfishly gave

Pain and death was the price that you ultimately paid.
Every day, I give my utmost admiration

To those who had fought to defend our nation.

Carol Roberts (Ross) (1963)

Jerry Deason, thank you for the information about Dorothy Faye.  She and my brother(Paul Roberts, who died earlier this year) were friends at Baptist Temple.  She was such a sweet person and I enjoyed spending time with she and Beverley.

Jerry Deason (1962)

Carol ,I am glad you responded. I did not know that Dorothy went to Sam Houston. I lived on Yale Stree( near Tidwell) and I believe she in the GARDEN OAKS area; yet hardly saw the Conway family. I know that her sister, Beverley, went to Waltrip. I sorry to know that PAUL had passed  away. Did PAUL go to SAM HOUSTON?

Carol Roberts (Ross) (1963)

Jerry Deason,  Paul and I knew Dorothy Faye and Beverley thru Baptist Temple, although if my memory serves me right, Jim Dupree went to Sam Houston.  My brother graduated in 1959 and I graduated in 1963.  I have kept in touch with Beverley thru the years.  I believe I met you and Jane one time many many years ago.  I have no idea where but I was aware that y’all were cousins. Hope all is well with you!

Lynda L. Voswinkel (Boehm) (1962)

Carol Roberts. Did you know the Caulkins twins (Ron and Don) at Baptist Temple? They are my first cousins. Jerry and Jane went through elementary and highschool with me as I am class of '62. Small Northside world we were in.

Jerry Deason hope you are doing well.

Jerry Deason (1962)

Carol, I glad you told about Jim Dupree. I plan to check my 1959 year book on Jim  and Dorothy. I start Sam Houston on Jan. of 1959. I'll will check out Robert.

Jerry Deason (1962)

Linda, thanks for your concern. DOING VERY WELL. Have some medical problems, but with age you have some problems; such arthritis, blood pressure and unbalance ( no cane or medical eguipment). My Prostate is no longer a problem. Thanks.

 


06/02/21 10:11 AM #4867    

Carol Roberts (Ross) (1963)

Lynda, I don’t believe I knew your cousins.  We went to Baptist Temple from the time I was in first grade until after I graduated from high school.  We were about the only kids that went to Sam Houston that went there.  Most of the others went to Reagan or Waltrip.

Gloria Turner (Morrill) (1961)

Frances Donner Gates and her husband Harold Gates graduated in May 1961. They are looking for pictures taken at their prom in  May 1961; the day they became engaged.  Their own prom pictures have been misplaced.  In September, 2021,  they will celebrate 60 years of marriage and they would appreciate a picture or some pictures commemorating  that spcial day.  Please response on the message forum if  you have any pictures of them at that 1961 event.

Thanks so much,

Gloria Turner Morrill

Just want to report that the Class of 1973 lost two precious Classmates, one last week and one today.  Roy Olivo passed away last week and his services are at Brookside Friday afternoon.

Today we lost Lonnie Phillips...part of our GLUE.  We are all stunned and know every Tiger can relate to these losses.

Prayers for comfort and peace as these families go through this difficult time.

Tammy Garner, Class of '73
