My High School Memory:

I remember that from the time I was a freshman I was piano accompanist, first two years for the B Choir and last two for the A Capella choir. I was in a 20-person ensemble the Pony Pipers for 2 years and enjoyed all the (seems like) almost 200 performances we did evenings around the community.

I also remember traveling by bus the last 2 summers of high school to Lake Tahoe Summer Music Camp with our band to learn classical and other types of music and perform them. I also sang in a trio with Bobbi Barker and Sue Kreitler and remember singing for a school Christmas program. I participated in the Operetta Brigadoon that many singers also became adept at dancing in, but I remember rehearsing the soloists their numbers with them with the piano before they tried it with the orchestra. Judy Welch and Merrilee Fields, one of the actresses, were outstanding piano accompanists, too.

I have a memory of beginning a 4th year of math my senior year, only to receive a request by my long-time high school choir director Gilbert Timothy to be piano accompanist for another singing group the same period as the advanced math course was, so I withdrew from the math class. I had received a 4-year honor roll pin and many times still found time to get straight A's occasionally, lucky enough not to get anything under a B. So I had to try to be very self-disciplined at home to fit things in as I tried so hard to keep up my good grades to go to college. Mr. Timothy drove me once to his Alma Mater U of O to introduce me to the profs at the Music School there, and I graduated with a music ed degree.

Ron, may I offer my condolences and may God's peace be with you at a time like this. I cling to God's promise of being reunited with our loved ones some day as I just lost my mom a few months ago and the sting of her death is still with me. My prayers and thoughts will be with you and your family, Ron. Take care.

Happy birthday, Pat. This is my picture 5 years ago Dec. 2010 three months after our 45th high school reunion, which I attended. Sorry I missed the 50th. My brother's birthday is today, also, on Ground Hog's Day. Looks like we'll have 6 more weeks of winter as no shadow to be seen! Have a good one.

Since attending Milwaukie High School, my youngest daughter has become close to a man by the name of Timothy Oliver. Is he any relation to you? He has lived in Portland for most of his adult life and is 43 years old.

This is Nancy Anderson here.  May Larry rest in peace.  I went to school with him, from my earliest recollections, from the very early grades of grammar school either 3rd or 4th grade on through high school.  At one time about then I had a crush on him and another classmate (maybe Jim Short) at the same time.  I was very shy so no one knew.  I thought he was the cutest boy in grade school or at least in my classroom.smileyheart

This is sad that Larry didn't even stay around for his senior citizen years.  We will all miss him very much!  May his family have very fond memories of him also!
