Rick and I were good friends in high school on the Track Team and back in those Friday night  quarter keg get togethers up behind Lake Lucerne, Right before he passed away we had talked about taking a bike ride on the Metro Parks bike trail but I didnt hear from him in planning our rondevous. Thats when I found out that he had suddenly passed away. 

We are going to miss Rick and all the good time we had together at SHHS. God Bless!

Sad to see George pass away! I spent the day with George about a year and half ago when he was passing through Chattanooga with his grand daughter on their Jet Ski's on a rally headed up river towards Knoxville. George and I where never that close during High School, but occasionally I would see him watching Rick Stotter and I on the track team throwing the shotput and discus.

I just learned of his passing today and regret not having spent more time with him since we lived about 70 miles or so apart in Tennessee.

We will miss you Big George! God Bless

Hi Caryl......., looks like that desert living has treated you well? I hope you have a wonderful birthday celebration and keep doing what your doing! God Bless.

Happy Birthday Micki.....It was a pleasure reading your "School Story" and your assorted adventures along the way. Every now and again I find myself attracted to this school website as a way to reminisce on how much fun it was at Shaker. Be that as it may, having attended the 55th with my wife it was a real shocker to find out how many of our classmates are no longer with us. So any opportunity I have to make up for lost time I take advantage of it! Have a great Easter Holiday Micki.........and God Bless you and your family!

Hi David, I am a veteran USCG Operation Deep Freeze and as you can imagine did a lot of traveling up and down the coast of North & South America......but can't hold a candle to your traveling exploits. What is your secret as a world traveler?

Hi Larry, Just a note to tell you that I still have your daughters Photo on my office note board..... A great reminder that there are still those of us that support Israel and the importance of having a great and faithful ally over there in the middle east.

Well another year has passed and it is time to come down the river again at the end of the month. We will have a layover day in Chattanooga again but this time on Monday the 23 rd. Maybe this time I can get you on one of my jet skis and ride down to Hale's bar and back if you can make it. Hope you are still well and able to enjoy life. Photo was from a couple of years ago with my closest friend Mr. Pat Moeller when we we're out on Lake Powell He was 93 then. Sorry to say he passed away last month and I really miss him as we talked several times a week. Big George

Hi Susan......

In my effort to wish you an upcoming Happy Birthday I noticed you also reside in Tennessee. So as one Tennessean to the other...... HB Susan! I'm just down the Interstate from you in Chattanooga. Also Happy New Year to you and yours!

Larry goodness! I'm glad that this alumni venue has kept everyone in touch especially in this case. I know you and I never maintained a very close relationship at Shaker but it obviously was enough to get my attention in any case.

Be that as it may..... I too am a veteran and found what I am assuming is your daughters photo with the assault weapon in an elevator "Right On"? That has "Poster of the Year" merit. God Bless her!! That is probably standard equipment over in Israel..... That is if that is where it was taken.
As a Christian and strong supporter of Israel and its leadership...I feel very strongly that the US should do whatever is necessary to defend our friendship and joint heir ship with the nation of Israel. Now that I know that your daughter will be living over there soon I will be honored to keep her and her husband in my prayers!
By the way..... I am looking forward to attending our next reunion in August and I hope you are as well.

Jeanne.......Interesting Bio! I love the part about Stephen Ministry and your support for the military. I am a veteran as well as my son and look forward to joining our fellow classmates at next years reunion. Hope to see you and Dean there as well.
