Attending Reunion



Jerrie and have enjoyed 41 years of marriage. Our son Geoff (LNE class of '90) and daughter in law Angela (Jenkins) (Hastings High class of '91) have blessed us with granddaughter Kaitlyn, age 6, and Isaac, age 2.
On a personal note, I have retired twice, but am still working. I served 20 years in the U. S. Navy, retiring as a Chief Warrant Officer (CWO2). I then finished a degree in accounting at U of Nebraska, and worked for Nebraska Book Co. (wholesale division) for 23 years. I now drive 3 or 4 days a week for a wholesale florist, delivering cut flowers and live plants to florists in Nebraska, Iowa, and Kansas. What a great job, being paid to look at scenery in our beautiful great plains. I saw some of the first sandhill cranes of the season near Grand Island on Friday March 6th.

School Story:

I remember vividly Hank Willemsen always on my case during football practice, trying to help me become a better player, a daunting task for him. I also remember always facing Reynold McMeen in the tackling drill, he being our best open-field-runner, and me being the worst tackler on the team. I remember sitting at the front table in Mrs. Krause's guidance class with Larry Hammers and Clifford Welding. My best class was Marching Band, and my worst class was 8th grade science which I failed due to my intense personal dislike of the teacher, Mr. Oakes. So I guess I really showed him!

On our long bus ride to Sidney during our senior year, Larry brought along a big stack of Sports Illostrated to help us while away the long hours.   This was typical of his thoughtfulness .  He was a friend to EVERYONE  in LNE cklass of '59.   In football he played guard at only 130 pounds, until coach Bauer  convinced him that he would better serve the team as student manager.   He did so with enthusiasm and pride. and was our best   and most enthusiastic team supporter.
