I got to know Sue through other BHS65 classmates. Sorry to read about her passing. I thought a lot about her. At class reunions, Sue always took the time to talk with me. She liked to talk about her Polish family tree, in high school, and at reunions and wanted to know about my Polish tree as well. I respected that very much. She always had a great positive attitude about things. I enjoyed her company very much. I am kind of taken back at this so sorry if I ramble...

Jeannette was another of the people Nancy & I grew up with. From K thru 12 with her. She lived on Baptist Rd. near McKee Dr., I remember her as a nail-biter of all things! At our 50th, remember taking with her and the Wickster at some length, just the three of us chatting. Sorry to hear about her passing away.

I was not close to Tom as we grew up. But I do remember that he could pitch. Remember Tom's father as well, very nice person. Not like the typical parent of a kid who is playing a sport! I think his dad attended every game Tom played, and I know he was there when Tom was scheduled to pitch that day. Through organized baseball leagues of Baldwin Whitehall, he threw a no-hitter against us in what was called the Teener League. Then in a different season, we were on the same team. I caught him that year and we went on to play in post season games made up of all players in the league, as All Star team. Tom was very, very good! I just remember Tom as a overall great guy through high school. Sorry to hear of his passing away. Thank you Linda for the post.

We know so little about Paul's death. However his younger brother Pat (BHS68) passed away in November 2016. He and Paul both lived in Farmington, PA. I have no additional information about Paul, appears hiis mother is still alive still lives on Highgrove Rd where they grew up...
Here is the obit on Pat:
Of Farmington, PA, passed suddenly and peacefully in his sleep, Sunday, November 6, 2016. He was predeceased by his father, Patrick A. Wick. He is survived by his mother, Mary Jane Wick of Pittsburgh; his brother, Paul R. Wick, of Farmington; longtime friend and companion, Robert W. Toye and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. The Wicks and Mr. Toye would like to invite friends and family for a celebration of his life on November 11, 2016, at the Stone House Restaurant, Chalk Hill, from noon to 3:00 p.m. The family requests that memorial donations be made to Fayette Friends of Animals, PO Box 1282, Uniontown, PA 15401. Arrangements are under the direction of the DONALD R. CRAWFORD FUNERAL HOME, Farmington, PA.
Ed was a childhood neighbor and a good friend back in the day. Back when Rich Nebash then Larry Miller passed, both Ed and Paul Wick were on board as we talked back then. Ed & I shared hobby interests with high end audio equipment. The adult boy toys where audio interconnect cables runs into the hundrends of $$$ each. Let's not talk about speaker cables prices! But the rewards at full volume are almost priceless, even at half volume. Sorry dogs! I knew Ed had multiple health issues going against him. Talked at length about them over time, Nancy being a Nephrology nurse gave him encouragement as well. Knew he would never be able to attend any reunion that was planned. Damn shame that when you retire and have a good retirement in place that health issues robs you of as in Ed's case living in the desert and enjoying life. I will miss him but always thinking of him. Rest in peace my friend. Thanks Craig for the post.

Happy Birthday a few days late, Dorothy Lau Brewster
Hey Dan - Happy birthday. Life is good - enjoy yourself. Myy best to Nancy. Bob Fehl
Many of you may not remember Jim Marino. Jim Marino like Howard Gorman did not appear at BHS until our junior year. I checked my 64' Balthi, Howard is there, Jim's photo was listed not available. Both went through the Catholic school system. They both started out at St. Gabrials then St. Basil which ended at grade 10, then it was Central, South Hills, or North Hills Catholic High schools back then. Like Dave Allison stated, Jim grew up between the two of us, I guess I lived three houses away. He was a hell of a good pool player. The then Pittsburgh Press did several stories on Jim over the years as he grew up and developed his skills. I remember spending limited time in his basement where the pool table was set up. A very unique individual, sorry to see that he has departed us.

BHS 65' Reunion Committee & all. Talked today with my neighbor, He is class 1952 and class president at Union Bridge, Md. His class size was 28 people in a school that was grades 1-12. Of the 28, 13 still alive with 8 guys still around. These 8 still get together every other month or so for luncheon in Union Bridge, tight bunch. That is keeping together! Let's dig up some classmates and welcome them aboard. We can get a 60th or 65th out of this one E-Z!

Dave Allison and I grew up with Carol, and knew her before first grade. She touched both of us in many ways throughout our school lives. After I spoke with with Dave I discovered her obit by accident.
