Many were not in the graduating class
- I don't know what happened to John Alquist, or Roger Miller. John Englert told me that Tom Blake transferred to McQuaid during our freshman year in order to get more playing time in basketball.
- Larry Lidfeldt was in the class on opening day, but only for a few days. Lidfeldt is now a lawyer with a firm in Florida, and his details can be seen here.
- I vaguely remember John Copeland being there on day one, but can't tell you a thing about him other than that he was a big guy.
- Jim "Indiana Hook" Panaro: I never heard a word about him again after he left our class until January 2007, when Chuck Ange told me that Panaro eventually graduated from Ben Franklin.
- Gerry Larew, and Gregory "Scott" McGregor didn't graduate with us, and I think they left the class in freshman year. Gerard Larew was an exceptionally bright guy from Blessed Sacrament parish who had been awarded a full four-year scholarship to BK, but soon transferred to Monroe High School for reasons unclear to me. The Monroe Class of 66 website mentions him, but has no info. "Scott" McGregor had been awarded a half scholarship. I don't remember why he left, nor very much about him, and I don't know what happened to him in later life. I seem to recall that he was a redhead. Maybe some of the people from St. Margaret Mary would remember more.
- Bob Magere joined the class at some time later in the year. If I remember right, he was the older brother of football star Rick Magere, who coached for BK in the 80s.
Hard to believe we had 50+ boys in our freshman homeroom, of which 46 graduated. That is now approximately equal to the total number of boys in the entire graduating class.
