Steve Cirillo Passed Away

I just received word via Facebook that classmate, Steve Cirillo, has died suddenly of a heart attack. He will be missed by those of us who had the pleasure of knowing him in high school and were able to stay in touch with him throughout the years since then. My personal condolences to his sister, Linda.

50th Reunion Steve Dave and Bob

Great Video of the Stones From Gerald

I believe that Gerald missed his true calling as an event photographer. The Stones are still a great R&R band.

Per Gerald: 

Barbara and I went to a Rolling Stones concert with some friends last week.  They, like us, are getting a bit long in the tooth but they put out a great concert.  Here’s a link to a slideshow I put together of the event.

Dear Friends:

On Tuesday, April 7th my beloved husband and best friend died from a brutal beating during a major robbery

In our Bed & Breakfast.  He would want you remember him with a smile and a light heart and when you play the

Porgy and Bess CD in your home.

Peace and Love, Suzye

Mr. Skeele Has Passed Away

Those of you who are on Facebook are probably already aware of this sad news. Mr. Skeele passed away on August 14th at the age of 92. He had been living in Medford OR for the past several years.

Here is a link to an article that talks about his later years. I suspect that many of us had him for at least biology and have our own fond memories of him.


As a teacher and person they don’t come any better.


The Leuzinger Legend

I saw this YouTube video posted on Facebook. Those of you who are Facebook followers probably have seen it. For those who are not on Facebook, here is the link.

The Leuzinger family was very prominent in the Inglewood/Hawthorne/El Segundo area throughout the first part of the twentieth century.  Leuzinger High School in Lawndale is named after Adolf Leuzinger.  This video depicts the family and farm that was located at the intersection of Aviation Blvd. and El Segundo Blvd.
