Re: Don Pierce (NAB-RIP)

I was saddened to hear yesterday that we lost Don Pierce
(married to Patti COLE ('52). Don and I were roommates and
football together at Central Washington. He was a blaze of
speed and tore up the then Evergreen conference. I remember
one game in Portland he got knocked out and I had to hold his
head up from going under the sledge.

His speed is still remembered, I am sure his best speed in the
100 yd dash is still a Central record. He ran 9.5 in the NAIA
national meet in Abilene, TX but lost to Bobby Morrow who went
on to many honors.

I send my best to you Patti, may God bless you in these
difficult times. Many fond memories of the great Cole family
on Cottonwood in my memories.

Apropos of absolutely nothing, though I would give a shout out
to "Jimbeaux" ('63) on this commemorative day of his birth.

-Bob Carlson, aka Mike CLOWES ('54) ~ Mount Angel, OR  where 
	the weather has calmed down, the fires are being 
	contained and I-84 may open someday.

To: Ed WOOD ('62)

Our class will be well represented in Tanzania this year, I
will be visiting there in February, 2018, on a UW tour with 
my friend from UW graduate school. She and I are exercising
faithfully to be able to keep up with the group, as we suspect
many will be younger than us 70+ year olds.

Another classmate of ours, Carol RICE ('62-RIP) also visited
Africa in the early 2000s and lived it. She always wanted to
return, were she still alive she might be joining me Too.

-Helen CROSS Kirk ('62) ~ from very hot west Harrison, IN 
	where after weeks of comfortable low 80s we've had 2 
	hot humid days getting up in the 90s??

Re: Missed a nuther one rook...

Wheeeeeeeeeeeew... dunno how I managed to escape what has
become a well known (to me) reproach when I mess up... I can
admit that somehow I missed fellow barrister Dean HEILING ('63
9/21), Ned BARKER ('59 9/21) Toni SHEPARD ('64 9/22) and
JoAnne BUCHOLZ ('65 9/22)... I have no excuse and will take my
punishment (I may regret those words)... so today we gots some
great Bombers celebrating... in fact, I just spent the weekend
with one of them and the Forever Young and lovely ('65)...
well, if benches count, I also spent time with another one 
who will be missed but is always with us... now I can't prove 
it but I did see one of these guys taking notes at our 70th
dinner party and will know if he plagiarizes at the '63 55th
reunion dinner presentation... somebody remind me next year...
so HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Jim (Jimbeaux) HAMILTON ('63), Steve
SIMPSON ('65-RIP) and George ZIELINSKI ('65) on your special
day, September 23, 2017!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
