He is also survived by his many friends and family, including his close friend, Scott Wood.

Golf Outing Today at Boonsboro!

Great Day on the Boonsboro CC golf course today with EC Glass Classmates from 1966. Had 16 players today. Picture below shows 15 as Larry Wood had to leave early. Those that played included Dewey Oakes, Wayne Harris, Keith Fisher, Tim Shelton, Malcolm Sydnor, Phil Ramey,  Wayne Smoot, Rich Saunders, Herb Braun, Hill McDaniel, Tom Preble, Bobby Brown, Tom Hodges, John Kidd and Jon Clement.. The Team of Bobby Brown, Herbert Braun​. Wayne Smoot​, and Tom Hodges placed first. Bobby also won for most points and Dewey was 2nd. Jim Green and Ed George were unable to play but came by to wish us well. Great to see old friends and classmates. We had a great time and hope those of you that have not played or could no play this time will join us at our next outing. Special thanks to Malcolm Sydnor​ for the arrangements and setting this up!

Roberta Cooper Logwood and Mary Janet Blencowe Murray recently got together for a recent Saturday. Roberta allowed me to share this wonderful picture

 

Roberta stated -"Ken and I spent a wonderful part of Saturday with Bean (Mary Janet Blencowe) and Paul Murray." She said "And yes, it was a delicious visit. Bean's simply the best woman ever, and her Paul - a Prince.  My admiration and delight deepened by the minute."

It sure is a treasure to get to see old friends and renew those friendships as we get a 'tad' older.

From Parade Magazine 12/25/2016:

Why is it that our high school experiences occupy such a prominent place in our memories?

—Amy Coldwell, Chicago, Illinois

During high school, we develop the most vigorous adult bodies we will ever have. At the same time, we possess the least amount of sense we will ever have. This combination produces many memorable moments! Marilyn Vos Savant

Letter from David Sutor:

ATTN: TIM SHELTON

REUNION  COMMITTEE

E C GLASS HIGH SCHOOL

Dear Tim:

I am very sorry to have to send my regrets in that I am unable to attend our Class Reunion. I had sincerely wanted to come and see everyone, but as the time drew nearer, I could not rearrange my schedule in order to attend.

When I was in Lynchburg in May visiting family, I stopped by E C Glass one afternoon and asked the front desk if it was permissible for me to look around. I had never set foot in our Alma Mater since our graduation day.

The staff was very nice and allowed me to roam around. People often say that, when one revisits a location from their youth which seemed large back then, that they are surprised at how small it is today. To my pleasant surprise, this was not the case with E C Glass.  It is a vast, monumental complex, and I was tremendously impressed.  In fact, I have seen other high schools in other cities, and none of them have ever compared with the sheer size, character, and reputation of E C Glass High School.

Many memories returned as I walked the halls, our beautiful auditorium, the impressive library, and the extraordinary additions to the Athletic Department.

But, of course, the "school" in my memory is actually all of us. Is my memory correct that ours was the largest graduating class in the history of E C Glass High School? We were the peak of the baby boom. I am very proud of our class and how our numbers have scattered around the world, with many successes, and exemplifying the good character of our great school.

Again, I am so sorry that I cannot meet with you all, but I know that we will be doing this again, perhaps in five years. Thank you very much, Tim, for having produced this great Reunion, and I am certain that all of you who do attend will have a wonderful time. Myolder brother, Tommy, was extremely impressed with his Reunion two years ago. Meeting with his classmates from Glass was extraordinary.

I request that, if you have any involvement in planning a future Reunion, you please let me know, and I will do everything possible to be there with you all.

My sincerest wishes of great success to you all. What a crowd.
