                               Newsletter October 2008- Updated February 2009

This newsletter started out to answer a question that I have been asked by a number of classmates, “Whatever happened to so-and-so?”
As time marches on, our classmates continue to move around. Others have passed on, and I would ask for a moment of silent prayer
(in your own fashion) in their memory. I’ve compiled a new class roster that I sent out separately, and this is an attempt to give a little
detail to peoples’ activity. This newsletter is also posted on the Class of 1960 website hosted by Gary Nuibe and his wife, Lynne.
See address of the website at the end of this letter.

If any of you have new information on any of our classmates, please send it Doug Kinley.

I began the newsletter last year with a summary by Leon Laquihon of the Radford Jubilee held to commemorate the first 50 years
of our alma mater(Radford began in 1957 as students transferred over from Pearl harbor Intermediate (fondly known as PHI, not

of his email is attached to this newsletter
