I have so many great memories of growing up and our good times around the nieborhood. I'll always remember our G.H.S. golf matches and riding in the packed Ford stationwagon. Sorry for your loss. John

Sorry to get the news of Willards passing. My brother and his wife kept me informed of his brave fight with his cancer. So tragic. I last saw him at my brother's house for a cookout. It was great to catch up with him and remember our time together at GHS. We will miss Willard's smile at our class reunion next summer. Mike and Robin Minott Welenc.
