#6 - Bobby Turpin ('58) of VA - 06/27/04:
Wonderful site you have produced.
And a good morning to you and yours! I still live in NN.
Retired from Newport News Ship (Oct. 2002).
I am enjoying retirement very much. I married Anne Sawyer (NNHS Class of 65) and we have 2 sons.
Thanks for all you do in keeping NNHS classmates informed and together.
OH, NEAT! I did not know that! I don't believe I've seen Anne since graduation! Such FUN I'm having!
#7 - Anne Sawyer Turpin ('65) - 06/27/04
I think I shall never forget all the fun we had in Mr. Waida's Art 3-4 class our
What a HOOT!
WOW - a big weekend for Newbies! Welcome one and all!
From my brother-in-law, Miles Nowitzky (Granby HS - '50, VMI -'54) of NC - 06/26/04:
I'd like to contact a
couple of my former classmates,
and my Brother Rat, Charlie Nuttycombe.
Hmmm.... those names do sound mighty familiar, Miles, mighty
familiar.......Perhaps someone has an email
addy for them. Anyone? Anyone???
From Joe Drewry ('58) of VA - 06/25/04:
At my request
(I know - why do I torture myself this way?!?), Joe sent us a list of about 16
to be added to the In Memoriam page for the Class of '58. I have the pictures all scanned and posted.
Perhaps by the time you read this, I will have finished listing all their high school activities. I ran several
of them through the SSDI, and was able to add more birth and death dates for a few. If any of you are
aware of colleges attended, or military service rendered, or have images or remembrances to post, please
send them along. This applies, of course, to all of the memorial pages for all of the classes.
Thanks so much, Joe.
That's never an easy task for me, but I do feel that it's one of my most
however much I'd rather bury my head in the sand.
Oh - and thanks for
passing along word of our site to your class members! We always enjoy
from fellow Typhoons, and the pages become more interesting with each added perspective.
Again from John Murden ('60) of VA - 06/25/04:
Super! Thanks, John!
Empty nest, hmmm? Well, my six sons (being nearly 34 down to barely 20) appear to be grown and gone, but I still have a daughter at home who'll be turning 17 in another month. You raise an interesting thought, though. A bit foreign to my head, but still interesting....Thanks again!
From Ron Smith ('65) of VA - 06/25/04:
Just to let you know I have Bobby (Yevak -'65) working part time at the (Peninsula) funeral home.
Wonderful! Thanks, Ron - and Hi, Bobby!
From Brownie Shaffer Haracivet ('62) of the Virgin Islands - 06/26/04:
How incredible! When we drove by there on October 18 so I could
images, and perhaps
see what had become of the beach, it seems there was a domestic dispute in progress with the police trying
to calm an angry man. By the time we had rounded the bend to snap the picture of the sign, we thought we heard
gunshots. When we completed the circle and were heading back down 16th Street, there were sirens and fire engines
and all manner of exciting things happening.
That was exciting, but this new type of excitement would seem to be preferable....
And tell Sallie hi, please! (Not that I ever actually knew her, but why
trifle with details
after forty-eleven years?)
From Pauline Collins Shofner ('65) of VA - 06/26/04:
My granddaughter and I were looking at the Buckroe web site moments ago.
It gave me an opportunity to share
memories with her regarding my parents.
My mother used to take the train from Richmond, where she lived, to Buckroe
Beach. She told me that people would jump off the train as it was slowing down,
including herself, to find the best picnic table first. My mother met my dad
at Buckroe. Her stories of those days were always a pleasure for me to hear.
I have some really cute photos of them taken together and of her alone.
It's always a pleasure to read and be able to share!
What a romantic story!
Thanks, Pauline! As you know, Buckroe was one of my favorite places on
I have more things I've been meaning to post there all week. Stay tuned...
From Dave Spriggs ('64) of VA - 06/26/04:
Poor Mrs. Wright. She has no MIDI. Well, she taught English. And we have
already used "Romeo & Juliet" for Mrs. Cameron.
However, here is a song uniquely associated with England, and which should
evoke just the right degree of recognition and dignity for this wonderful lady.
Ohhhh, what a lovely choice for
Mrs. Wright's page! Itís up and running
now Ė and so beautiful!
Thanks so much, Dave!
From Bill Black ('66) - a.k.a. radio's "Jim Quinn" of GA - 06/26/04:
How very cool! This was
more than likely given to you at the Mouse Assembly. Iím putting it on
Odds and Ends:
At the moment it just links
to itself, but very soon itíll have a page of itís own Ė same place,
just gussied up a bit. Thanks, Bill!
From Joe Madagan ('57) of FL - 06/26/04:
http://www.nnhs65.00freehost.com/wgh.html - scroll (slowly) to the bottom for a wonderful memory.
Oooooh, thanks, Joe! What a great closing note to our Newsletter (sorry - I couldn't resist the pun!)
Y'all have a good weekend, and take care of each other.
Love to all, Carol
