George and He
I dated roommates while at D.U.He was my dating mentor and 54 years later, I still have fond memories of tall George. He was a great guy.

I just learned today that George joined many of our other South High classmates in Heaven.
We lost contact after graduation in 1954 when I moved out of state. However, I saw him at class reunions and we usually chatted for a few minutes.

He e-mailed me after the 2004 reunion and told me he was living in Salida and I know his heart was was in that area after his retirement

My memories of him are that of a tall, very good looking, Dutch young man, who was loved by everyone, especially the girls. I also had a crush on him in junior high school. He used to look out the window of his home room and "talk to me" with his hands, as I sat in my home room, a portable classroom (by the window, always).

In high school, we sat next to one another and I helped him with his College Prep studies and home work. He probably owed some of his success as an Attorney to me because of sentence structure (most of which I have forgotten.)

Even though this is quite late. I send my sincere sympathy to Susan and his daughters and his many, many friends, whom I know share in his loss.
