Greetings 1960 Panthers,

 

How can it have been 55 years since we donned caps and gowns and marched forward into the world of tomorrow, most of which is now the world of yesterday. From this vantage point, the cause to renew old friendships and celebrate the ties that bind seems tantamount, and every ten years not often enough. To that end, this Reunion Committee has worked diligently, together with our loyal friends at SW Reunion Planners, to design an opportunity for classmates and guests to celebrate together in comfortable surroundings that are, hopefully, reasonably affordable for most.

 

Our 55th Reunion will take place at the Westward Look Wyndham Grand Resort and Spa which most of us remember fondly as “The Look,” on Saturday evening, October 17. Full details are posted on our website, www.amphi60.com. While the official occasion will be one night only, comfortable space will be available within the resort where those who wish to gather informally on Friday can do so, and desirable breakfast destinations will also be posted for those who wish to get together Sunday morning.

 

A 55th Reunion does not normally draw as many respondents as previously, so we are working with a rather tight budget. It is therefore critical that we know how many people for whom to plan at the earliest possible time. We sincerely hope each and every one of you can be part of this joyous celebration, and encourage you to set your registrations quickly. Early confirmations will enable us to reserve the most desirable space. 

 

Many who attended the 50th Reunion expressed a desire for something a little quieter and less “energetic,” to provide greater opportunity for enjoying one another more personally. Your voices are heard, and every effort will be made to accomplish that end. There will be music of our era, but it will be softer, and there will be opportunity for those who wish to dance, but it will not be a major focus of the evening. The microphone will be passed, for those who want to briefly share a special memory, hopefully something to generate laughter, and any who wish to bring old photos or memorabilia to share are encouraged to do so.

That we may not be as many as before is no reason that this cannot be the best Reunion ever. Let us all make it so by the special gift of presence.

 

With sincerest and fondest regards,

 

The Planning Committee

ANNOUNCEMENTS
Hi, everyone. This is Randy, reporting some unhappy news. Mike Carroll's obitiuary was in today's "Arizona Republic." He died on Christmas Day. The obit described an admirable history of military service, and of legal practice in Maricopa County, and included a picture of a very handsome, distinguished-looking man who still resembled the boy with whome we grew up. There is a memorial service at his Episcopal Church in Paradise Valley on Tuesday afternoon, January 5. I plan to go to represent the class.

Looking forward to seeing all of you at the 50th in October.

Greeting everyone, 21 Feb 10y
Picking up the Arizona Republic today I find that Paul Holloway past away on 18 Feb 10 after a long bout of cancer. A memorial service will be held on Thursday 24 Feb, at 5:30pm at the Phoenix Art Museum, 1625 N. Central, Phoenix.
Be well,
Ron Travis

Greetings to all classmates. I attended Paul's public Memorial Service last evening, and thought perhaps you would like to know about a life that was obviously well lived. The service was in the theater at the prestigious Phoenix Art Museum for which Paul was both a patron and a benefactor. An overflow crowd of several hundred filled the auditorium, many of whom were the most respected names and faces from the Maricopa County legal community - attorneys and judges. Moving and inspiring tribute was paid to a man who was obviously respected and loved even by his adversaries. Paul's only daughter, Kelli, led a parade of about ten men and women who honored him, his life and his work, evoking both tears and laughter. Kelli spoke of her father's Amphi years, beginning with first grade at L. M. Prince School where he and I were classmates, together with about a dozen or so of you who went through the whole twelve years together. One of his closest friends, a college fraternity brother and legal companion, referred to him as "Peter Pan in a Mills Touche' suit." There was loud and joyous affirmation from the audience. Following the service, which lasted for about an hour and a half, there was a very gracious reception in the great hall, hosted by the law firm of which Paul was the senior partner.

Paul had apparently waged a battle with cancer for more than fourteen years, managing to hold his ground and enjoy a quality nd fulfilling life until the last month. When just two weeks before his death his physicians told him there was nothing more they could do and that he would be transferred to Hospice, he had his wife drive him around to personally visit each of his current clients in order to say farewell, and to assure them that they would be well represented by the other partners in his firm.

It seems to me ironic that both Paul and Mike Carroll were football team mates and buddies in high school, both were prominent and highly respected Phoenix attorneys, and both died far too young of vicious cancers within less than two months of one another. May we all be reminded to cherish our memories and one another while we can.

Blessings to all,
Randy

I don't know whether many of you knew John Doty whose Sister Margaret Doty was in the class behind us. John was in the class of 1954, but those of us who were active in 4-H knew him because of his leadershp roles in Pima County 4-H. John's obituary was in today's Arizona Republic. He died June 18, at age 74. Margaret and her husband William Mundy live in Amherst, VA.
