The news about Richard's passing was a shock to me as I know it was for everyone.  I feel blessed to have visited with him at the reunion.  I'm glad he came to our 50th and had a great time.  He was a very interesting person and funny.

I know Karen Busch Withner took a lot of pictures that she plans to send to George  Heyworth.

I thought you might be interested in this article VA study shows parasite from Vietnam may be killing vets.

 

A half century after serving in Vietnam, hundreds of veterans have a new reason to believe they may be dying from a silent bullet — test results show some men may have been infected by a slow-killing parasite while fighting in the jungles of Southeast Asia.

Stan, I had not heard about this parasite that you mentioned for veterans who served in South Viet Nam. I was there in 1971 in the northern part of South Viet Nam in an Army infantry platoon (not far from where the closed Marine Base Khe Sanh was located). I am wondering if this parasite was primarily from the Central Highlands or farther south to the Mekong Delta. I was very fortunate to not have seen any combat during my tour of duty. However, my only war wound was a mosquito bite that left a scar on my right leg (I actually have a picture back then showing the bite!). I will have to research this parasite. The area that we operated in had been defoliated with Agen Orange, but we did not see any actual spraying of this chemical. This reminds all of us that we can be affected by some things from our distant past no matter what direction life took us!

I was in Horace 'Dutch' Propst biology class my junior year. Mr. Propst asked me what my father's first name was. I indicated my dad's name was Curt. As it turned out, Horace and dad were acquaintences in the 1950's. My grade point average was beginning to slip in my junior year from what it was my sophomore year, and I thought to myself, maybe I can get an "A" in biology, since Mr. Propst knows my Dad! I did not get an A for that biology class from Mr. Propst; however, I did get a B for the class (actually, I think I should have gotten a C+). Rest in peace Mr. Propst.

 Van and I are sorry we missed the reunion picnic. We did catch lots of fish in Canada and had a great time. What are dates for next year?. We are always gone the second week in August. I hope you plan it earlier next year so we can come. We are already booking our lodging for August 2020.

Hello Robin and Van  !  We had a committe get together after the picnic  to go over how everything went was hard to find anything that went wrong , however what we are planning for next year, More will come on website from Dave. We ended up selecting Aug 15th because the first short weekend is the 1st , the second weekend is class 66`s picnic and we have several 67 classmates who have spouces in that class, so we chose the 15th. What dates did you pick to go North to fish , I hope this works > Ill share this information with the committe on Nov 11th whe we get together  again. I`ll try and give you a call , i wpuld like to see how fishing was and possibly some infromation on the place you two go to. This was the first year in over 40 years i did not go to Alaska to fish. Might be interested in something different to try.

I think I am getting those 'dish pan' hands from washing so much. You have probably heard of humming or singing this: Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear 'so and so", Happy Birthday to you (and one more verse) will be twenty seconds. I use this one: Mississippi 1, Mississippi 2, Mississippi 3, Mississippi 4, Mississippi 5, ... Mississippi 20. Teresa tells me not to say it so loud! Just kidding! Stay safe and wash those hands!

The other option is the one we use during CPR......"staying alive"! Seems rather appropriate right now. Take care and stay safe.

 Dave, I really enjoyed your picnic recap. It’s amazing how wonderful it all turned out even though there were no people involved! I hope it turns out as well next year! Seriously though, good job-you have some major writing talent! Also gotta say, Shirley Canfield's response was quite clever as well! Good job Shirley!

In regard to the former police chief of Lynnwood, the spelling was "Glandt" and all you little hoodlums from the "Glass of 67". (Yes! Glass) are lucky he didn't use the same tactics he used as a Chicago patrolman in the 40's and 50's.  Your problem was . . . You got caught!  Chief Glandt's daughter was in the Class of 65, that had to be tough getting dates, your dad is the Chief of Police!

While working at McDonald's on 196th my senior year I saw the chief pull over some " hippies ".  Next thing you know the long haired driver is being dragged to the front of the car and face planted into the hood.  Memories.

I have never posted on this before.  I graduated class of '67, but what has brought me to the need to post is the statements about Al Giant in Lynnwood.  My dad owned the Chevron gas station, or ran it for Al Forsgren.  I'm not sure how that worked.  The station was right next door to Conklin Appliance.  Anyway, I remember my dad coming home one evening very angry at the Chief...Glant in his 'Joe Friday' kind of style, had pulled his gun on a fleeing thief, not sure who or what the thievery was about.  Anyway, Glant fired on the street and his wild shots came through the window of my dads station.  My father wasn't one to get too pushy, but seems there was nearly a fist fight , certainly Al got a tongue lashing minimally.  That's all I recall...

Local leader John Garner: ‘A glowing example of a gentleman’

An accomplished athlete went on to become a teacher, coach, principal and county councilman.

  • John Garner

John Garner

MARYSVILLE — John Garner had a remarkable knack for leadership as an athlete, Navy officer, teacher, coach, principal, city administrator and Snohomish County Council member.

He also is the correct answer to several questions for local sports and education trivia buffs.

Question: Who holds the Everett Junior College football team record for a 99-yard interception return?

Answer: John Garner

Q: Who was first baseman and team captain for the EJC Trojans baseball team that won the state championship in 1951, and team captain the following year at University of Washington?

A: John Garner

Q: Who, in 1963, was the first football coach at Meadowdale High School?

A: John Garner

Q: Who was principal when Marysville and Pilchuck high schools merged in the 1970s?

A: John Garner

And the list goes on.

His accomplishments — from Edmonds School District and Everett Community College Hall of Fame athlete to Boy Scout, Rotary and YMCA board member — covered a wide swath of Snohomish County over many decades.

Johnnie Lemar Garner Jr., born on New Year’s Day in 1931, died Feb. 21 in Bellevue. He was 90 and had been diagnosed with prostate cancer and Alzheimer’s, according to a family obituary. He spent his final days surrounded by loved ones.

Garner’s lifelong dedication to bettering the lives of those around him will be missed by many, including Bob Drewel, a colleague and friend of 45 years.

“John Garner was one of those people I never heard anybody say a bad word about, and that’s a rather significant achievement when you hold a position in elected office,” said Drewel, a former Everett Community College president who served as Snohomish County executive from 1992 to 2004. “I think the word gentleman was created for him. He was frankly one of the most kind, sincere, honored, principled people I ever had the honor to work with.”

Garner was born in San Diego, California. After a series of childhood moves as a Navy brat, Garner settled in Snohomish County with his family. He graduated from Edmonds High School in 1949. Garner went on to attend EJC for two years. He then completed his Naval Officer’s Training program and returned to Seattle to finish his education at the University of Washington, where he played baseball. He retired in 1973 as a commander in the Navy Reserves.

In 2016, he was inducted into the Everett Community College Hall of Fame for both baseball and football.

From 1970 to 1982, Garner was principal of Marysville Pilchuck High School. He went on to serve as Marysville city administrator for six years and was elected to the Snohomish County Council in 1993, where he served four years.

Connie Mennie, communications administrator for the City of Marysville, worked as a legislative aide for Garner when he served on the council. She said Garner was one of the first people to make her feel welcome when she moved to the county at age 25 for a newspaper reporting job at the Marysville GlobeSince then, she’s always looked up to Garner, both in career and character.

“His reputation? Smart, principled and always fair. When I interviewed him for news stories, John reinforced those attributes over and over,” Mennie wrote in a thank-you letter dedicated to Garner she posted online in 2015. “Working with him was always a joy, and I aspired to someday be the kind of person that he was.”

Garner is survived by his second wife, Maxine Paige, sister Mary Olson, and children, Jeff Garner (Mary), Kyle Garner, Jane Garner Roe (Robert) and Jana Garner Koeberle. He is also survived by seven grandchildren, Jayson and Landon Garner, Andrea, Chelsey and Matt Roe, Olivia and Colin Koeberle, as well as six great-grandchildren.

His first wife, Noreen Garner, died of ovarian cancer in 2002, just days before their 50th wedding anniversary. Donations in John’s Garner’s memory may be sent to the Noreen H. Garner Nursing Scholarship Fund at Everett Community College Foundation, 2000 Tower St., Everett, WA 98201 or made online at everettcc.edu/foundation or to the Cure Alzheimer’s Fund at 34 Washington St., Suite 310, Wellesley Hills, MA 02481 or made online at curealz.org/giving/donate/.

“If you run into people in Marysville and Everett and say ‘John Garner,’ people’s faces just light up,” Mennie said. “He was just a glowing example of a gentleman.”
