Some classmates located by Det. R. Carlson

JAMESTOWN, New York - Randy Carlson, aka, Det. R. Carlson, reports that after relentless work and burning up some shoe leather, he has tracked down classmates Jack Nobbs and Dave Jones.

OK. Maybe he didn't exactly track them down, per se, but Jack stopped by to see Larry Nelson and reports that he now lives in Washington state. It's still good detective work, right?

Here's Jack's contact info:

Email: JAnobbs@aol.com

Address: 1924 W 10th Ave Kennewick, Wa 99336

I was too lazy to pull out the yearbook and snap a shot to show Jack in 1966, but I had this shot of he and his wife Linda from 15 years ago. (By the way Jack, I borrowed $5 from you at The Main Event bar that reunion. I figure with interest, I owe you, well, let's call it square, shall we?)

Det. Carlson didn't let on how he found the contact information for Dave Jones (trade secrets, no doubt) but here's Dave's info:

Dave Jones
42 Turnberry Ln
Chillicothe, Ohio 45601-1100.

OH! And if you lost Ken Sonne's email, here it is:


I can't tell you how nice it is to post some happy news.

Here's a shot of Det. R. Carlson and Larry Nelson from this summer while they were on a case outside the SeeZurh House:

Classmates: Sue Pratt has passed away

SIOUX FALLS, South Dakota -- I received word from Dan Beckstrom and also Bob Swanson over the weekend that our classmate, Sue Pratt, has died.

Her obituary from the Jamestown Post-Journal is reprinted - without permission, thank you very much - below.

I looked up Sue in my yearbook and noted that she didn't sign it, though I do remember her. She wasn't very tall and I remember she always seemed to be moving really fast when classes were passing. I also remember her with a smile most of the time.

It's pretty sad how many of our classmates are passing away. We are not that old, people!

Here's Sue's notice:
