I got to know Tim senior year, and I remember that he was warm to be around and smiled more than the rest of us. The town where he's lived for a while, Port Ludlow (not far from Seattle, where I am), is in a scenic, peaceful little inlet at the mouth of the Hood Canal in Puget Sound. Washington State has many small towns like this, increasingly populated by retirees and some younger families escaping city life. The town, and the world, will have lost something with Tim's passing. We need people like him more than ever.

Bill was a good soul with a great sense of humor. This one hits home. Rest in peace, Bill.

Bob and I lived just a few houses from each other in Garrett Park Estates. I enjoyed talking to him at reunions. I guess we should get used to losing so many, but it's hard.

Wow! I didn't know him but I just bought "The World as I found it." Obituaries in New York Times and Washington Post. Wikipedia article. Worth spending some time on.

Bruce and I grew up a few blocks from each other, though we didn't know each other well until junior high, since we went to different elementary schools. Two of my nieces were born about the same time as his daughters, and we used to swap funny stories. I remember the rigor with which he worked on "The World as I Found It" -- since he had to have a day job at the same time. Such a great take on life, too. So sorry to hear he died.

Wow! I am so sad to hear this! She was such a gas to hang out with at the reunions. I loved kidding her about the inventive way she turned me down when I asked her out in high school. And her story about the pet monkey she had in college (did she make that up to pull my leg?). She was always fun, with a great smile. I'm with you Dave, I miss her too.

Vagrant thought. I noticed how many August birthdays there were. I wonder what our parents were doing in November 1950. I guess we know one thing...

Such a shame. We went to Holy Redeemer Grade School together, as well as WJ, and had a great conversation at the 45th reunion. She had a great sense of humor.

I remember Jim as a sweet guy and am glad, Carol, that you have a son you both loved.
