From David Wiest on February 7th, 2018
Paul Andrews was a South Oak Hill neighborhood kid.  We played baseball together on the neighborhood sand lots and Paul was actually a pretty good ball player.  He became BFF's with Jim Corniea and when Jim died from Hodgekins Paul took it very hard.  The last time I saw him was at a reunion, I don't remember which one, I think 20 or 25.  He was despondent and even that festive atmospher didn't cheer him up.  It was not long after that that I was told Paul ended his own life.  A real shame.

From Clyde Kodadek on September 19th, 2018
The last time I checked this section, Mike was not here. I was shocked to see him listed today. As far as I know, Mike and I were the only ones from The Class of 1968 to have careers in law enforcement. I was looking forward to seeing Mike at the reunion to exchange "street stories", since I had not seen him for 30 years. On my last visit, Mike gave me a tour of his police department. His was proud of the Brooklyn Park Police Department. I was impressed with how progressive and well equipped his agency was. Mike was a class guy. He was a credit to the Brooklyn Park Police Department and the law enforcement profession. 
 
 
From Judy Golden (Ogorinsky) on August 20th, 2018
I grew up knowing the Baldwin brothers (Mike and Steve) from  Elliot elementary school.
Twins, but very different in their personalities.  I was saddened to hear that Steve had passed away and was hoping to possibly see Mike at the reunion.  Unfortunately with the notification of his recent death, that will not be happening.
May they both rest in peace.

Nancy Nielsen (Czerwinski)

Czerwinski

Nancy Louise Czerwinski, of Castle Pines, CO, passed away Saturday, June 7th after a brave battle with severe pneumonia, Sarcoidosis, and beginning Lymph cancer. She was born in Minneapolis, MN. on September 6, 1950. She passed away at the age of 63, after 42 wonderful years of marriage. She died in her husband Michael’s arms.
Nancy was preceded in death by her mom Dolores, her dad Borge her step father George and her daughter Erica Starr Czerwinski. She was survived by her husband Michael, her son Robin and wife Jenifer and her brother Robert.
Nancy was a warm, generous and passionate mother. She made it her job to feed every stray cat, dog, or animal. She was able to live through the pain and suffering of losing our daughter Erica Starr to an intoxicated driver on March 14, 1999 at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, TX. Her last two items left to accomplish in life were to see her son married and to finalize the Erica Starr theatre naming so no one could take it from us.
She was a strong woman who told the story straight and never wavered from the facts. We will remember her for her love of animals, her family and shopping. Memorial Service, Monday, June 23, 2014, 2:00pm, Horan & McConaty Family chapel, 1091 South Colorado Blvd. in Denver.

I attended Sadie Hawkins Day dance with Deborah in 1965 or thereabouts - I probably would have asked her if she hadn't asked me. And then reconnected all too briefly on Facebook recently. I was shocked and saddened to learn of her passing - she was a sweet soul.

From Nancy McKeon Moline on March 3rd, 2018
Kathy was a good friend of mine (we were room mates after high school) and Mary Roster Underfurth "68" (who still lives in Mpls) and Jo Ellen Stebbins "68". Kathy married Donald Dickey and they lived in Richfield.  When Kathy was young she suffered from serious intestinal problems and almost died then. I remember being in the hospital after surgery with her when she had a very high fever and them putting her on a cooling bed which she did not like. Those problems may have lasted her entire life and may have been what she died from.

Thomas Ehrenberg

February 25th, 1950 - October 8th, 2013

Thomas Ehrenberg

1950-2013

Thomas Monroe Ehrenberg, a longtime Eagle local known for his generous spirit, infectious laugh and tenacious work ethic, died Oct. 8, surrounded by his family.

Tom was born Feb. 25, 1950, in Minneapolis, and he attended Minnesota State University in Moorehead. He arrived in Vail in 1975. Tom worked for Rocky Mountain Airways and as a Sno-Cat driver for Vail Resorts before moving to the Eagle area where he bought 10 acres in the Mosher subdivision up Brush Creek in 1980. He began residing in the Eagle town limits in 1989 and he was a longtime employee for Eagle County Buildings and Grounds.

Tom was a civically minded citizen and he proudly served on the Eagle Planning and Zoning Commission from July 1992 to April 1996 and on the Eagle Town Board from April 1996 to April 2004. He also served on the Greater Eagle Fire Protection District Board, the Eagle Golf Course Advisory Committee, the East Eagle Restoration Project Committee and the Eagle Pool and Ice Rink Capital Improvements Committee.

Like any good Minnesota boy, Tom had an abiding love for hockey. He was instrumental in starting Eagle's youth hockey programs and, for more than a decade, he volunteered as one of Eagle's Zamboni Brothers — a group of dedicated hockey enthusiasts who laid down and then maintained the winter rink at Eagle Town Park. Along with this fellow "brothers," Tom could often be spotted behind the wheel of the Downvalley Zamboni — a pickup truck with a 300-gallon water tank cobbled together with a spray bar and sweeper — during the predawn hours. Then at lunch hour, locals could often find him in the middle of a hotly contested pick-up hockey game.
 

He was a proud father and a loving grandfather.

Tom is survived by his wife, Trina Ehrenberg; his daughters, Megan Ehrenberg, Jessica Medsker and Casey Medsker; his sons, Jason Ehrenberg and Michael Medsker; and his sisters, Janet Reed and Nancy Burchfield. His cousins, nieces, nephews, grandkids and friends will all miss him deeply.

Megan Ehrenberg and family would like to invite all friends to a celebration of the life of Thomas Ehrenberg on Saturday, Oct. 26, at 11 a.m. at the Eagle County Fairgrounds Exhibition Hall.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund has been set up at Alpine Bank in Eagle under Tom Ehrenberg Memorial Fund. Donations will go to Seniors On Broadway to create a memorial garden in Tom's name at the Golden Eagle Senior Apartments.

From David Wiest on February 7th, 2018
What can I say about Mike!  Probably too much.  Mike and I met at age 6.  His family lived in a quanset hut on Blake and hwy 7 before moving to Edgebrook.  He lived 5 houses down from us and it was ordained that we would become friends.  The first time I met Mike he threw rocks at me. How can I adequately share 60 years of that friendship.  We built forts, Mike threw up in my backseat on Barry Gilmer's girlfriend, we went on road trips,the longest to California,we rode bicycles and motorcycles on and off road.  We got drunk, had parties, went to dances (Mike woulldn't dance), played pinball everywhere.  Mike ended up with 10 pinball machines in his basement.  Went to concerts.  Got in fist fights with each other as well as many others.  There were 7 of us that were thichk as thieves and 3 are now gone. But we never forgot about our friendship.  Mike got married later and when his wife Nancy died of breast cancer Mike raised his teen age kids.  His responsibilities were enormous but he didn't complain.  He and I were going to a few concerts and having a beer every now and again, ususally at Park Tavern.  One day he told me he wasn't feeling well.  I talked him into goingto the doctor and they diagnosed him with kidney failure.  Over the next year he repeatedly went to doctor who gave him several different diagnosies.  Finally he went in for a colonoscopy and they couldn't even get the scope past him tumor.  He ahd stage 4 colorectal cancer.  Over the next 10 months he slowly got sicker and sicker.  Finally he asked me to help arrange someone to draw his will.  I helped him do that and two weeks later he was in a hospice facility.  He passed one week later.  He is buried next to his wife Nancy at Lakewood Cemetery.  I miss Mike and think of him and our days together frequently.  Mike was one of a kind.

I loved Mona she was so funny even when she was hurting inside. We would talk for hours on the phone. I wish I could have eased her pain in so many ways.
 
From Denise Franzen Schmieg on April 23rd, 2018
Mona was my best friend starting at age 3. We played together, went to church/Sunday school together, & got grounded constantly as we were growing up. Through the years we stayed in touch, her in Oklahoma, me still in Minnesota. Her phone conversation of cancer getting worse, brought almost 50 years of memories flooding back to me. Only recourse was to drive down to spend time with her before her passing. Along on this trip was our mutual good friend & classmate, Barb Wilensky. It was very emotional but Barb & I had each other to share our ‘coming to grips’ with losing a long time friend, on the very long ride home. 
Love you Mona June & miss you, still.

Greg Gilmer

From Greg's sister, Barb, via David Wiest:
I believe we moved to Robbinsdale in 67.  Greg would have been in 12th grade, but it seems he didn't attend?  He was getting into all sorts of trouble. We all were.  His DOB 8-9-1950.  I have no high school pics except the one I shared on Facebook when he was in that band.  So for the heck of it I googled Greg Filmed wears US flag, and got a NY Times article on his arrest on the West Bank on the birthday of our nation.  Greg was 18 so that was a year out of high school, but paints a picture of where his head was at the time.  He did work house time and I remember Mom got crank calls from avid patriots.  I wonder who ended up with the Mpls. Newspaper articles the letter of apology from Greg and the photos from that incident."
Here is a link to the NY Times Article, 7/5/1971

From Marcy Shapiro Huggins via email to the reunion committee:

Dear Howie,

If you could post the following:

Just a few months after graduation, Chuck became my stepbrother when our parents married.  Though we never lived under the same roof, our friendship throughout our school years made us closer than many steps.  Chuck spent a few years at St. Cloud State, then moved to Mexico.  He married, divorced, and then married again.  In his second marriage he had three children and lived and raised his family in the village of Compeche, on the eastern coast of Mexico, closer to the Yucatán Peninsula than the US.  When his children became old enough for school, they split their time between Texas and Mexico.  Shortly after Chuck attended his last class reunion, I believe it was our 35th, he told us he had pancreatic cancer and died just a few months afterward in a hospital in Texas. Chuck had asked me to attend that reunion with him and I didn’t go.  This remains a great regret.  I continue to miss him and look forward to seeing everyone at our 50th in honor of my brother.

From Phil Hirsch on February 1st, 2018
Chuck lived up the block from me on Idaho Ave. We played on the same rec league basketball team and, as a catcher for the Pony league Cardinals,, he never threw me out stealing a base. Not once. It used to to drive him nuts.

From then until recently, from St. Louis Park to somewhere in Mexico, the accounts of Chuck's whereabouts and activities. were always ineresting, tinged with mystery, probably exaggerated, and apparently at least partly apocriphal.

RIP, Chuck.

My dear friend, Sue:  We met in 10th grade and were close friends for over 30 years until your death in 1995.  You enjoyed going out for breakfast
before school, bowling and especially music.  We shared with each other
our hopes and dreams for the future.  When cancer entered your life at
age 29, you fought courageously until the end.  The last time we went out
for lunch we also took a self tour of the high school.  It seemed you knew
it would be thd last time at the school.  I will never forget you, Sue, and 
will forever miss you.  Love, Shelley

From Dave Zakariasen on September 13th, 2018


Only Fritz would skip school on the last day befor Christmas vacation to go skiing and break his leg.
The next week we were at my parents cabin and the old plaster of paris cast did not fair so well. It got soaked in the snow and run over by the smowmobile several times. We even tried holding it together with athletic tape but it didn't help. That cast was wet, mushy, and smelly as an over ripe black banana. The best we could do was give Fritz a special place in the far corner of the cabin.
We always had a lot of fun. Barb and I do miss him.

John Lobsinger was killed in action in January 1968.  You can view him on the Vietnam Memorial wall.  
This info is from Terry Kirberger:

I met John in 7th grade at Westwood. He must have gone to Aquila grade school I’m guessing because he lived close to that school.
He lived in a very nice house with a in ground pool in the back yard along with the Minnehaha creek in back of there property. The summer between 11th and 12th grade John and his father had a argument witch resulted in his dad taking John down and signing him into the Army.
The last time I saw John was three months before he was killed, it was at his moms funeral . She died of breast cancer.

You will not find a picture of John in our year books because his dad always made sure he had super short hair.
John was a great guy. I miss my friend.

From Jeff Liss on June 10th, 2018
I knew Sam a few times during my life. We first met in junior high and connected again in high school. The last time Sam and I corresponded was late in his life, about 6 months before he received the devistating news from his doctor. Until the very end, Sam was a kind, loving, caring and geneous friend. He guided me through some tough spots and remained a very special person until the very end. I think about him often and miss him every time I do. R.I.P. Sam

Sam and I had been friends since elementary school  We shared many friendships and spent hours together singing folk songs and playing our guitars until the wee hours of the morning.   After college we both went our separate ways, but years later we were able to touch base again.  Unfortunately, Sam became ill and passed away only a few years after we began to reconnect.  He was a warm and caring individual and I cherished his friendship.

From Phil Hirsch on February 1st, 2018
For me, a friendship with Murph illustrates part of what's weird about high school - wonder if its still this way today: In high school, I was never sure if even knew my name, We'd say 'hi' sometimes in the hallway, but no more than that. Later, at one of our reunions (10th, 25th???) we connected, spent quite a long time talking and catching up. He was warm, genuine, engaging, friendly, and interested me and in sharing his story. Go figure. I'm sorry to learn of his passing.

From Judy Golden (Ogorinsky) on February 20th, 2018
 Barbara Kvasnick was called 'Boko' or just 'Bok' for short by all her close friends.  The name stuck after she had signed one of her psychedelic and Jimmy Hendrix inspired paintings from Ms. Neimes' high school art class with her initials – B.K. and had drawn round circles instead of periods after the initials.
From high school until her death in 2013, Barb lived the life of an artist.  Her home, surrounded with artwork and pieces she had collected from her many travels and friends, was also her studio.  She was an extraordinary individual - full of talent and emotion and a very close friend throughout my life.

Jerry is survived by his best friend and wife of 34 years, Colleen O'Neill; daughters, Molly O'Neill (Marquese Brown), Caitlin Attwill (Kim); adored granddaughter, Mya O'Neill and his sweet dog, Sugar. Jerry held a strong belief that doing what you love enriches your life and the lives of others. This was driven by a solid work ethic. He held three union cards in construction yet he returned to school when his children were born to care for them by day while attending school at night and graduating with honors, earning two Associate degrees. He was a licensed real estate appraiser and became one of the first Home Inspectors licensed in Minnesota by the American Society of Home Inspection. He was proud of the home inspection business he built with a foundation of honesty and experience. He lived a rich life, loved a good story and always had a joke ready to brighten somebody's day. He will be greatly missed, but we are better because of his love, strength and humor. There will be a celebration of his life on April 9th, 2015 in NE Minneapolis.

William Olander

William Olander, 38, Art Curator, Is Dead

Published: March 21, 1989

 

William R. Olander, the senior curator at the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York City, died of AIDS Saturday in Minneapolis. He was 38 years old.

Mr. Olander lived in New York but had returned to Minneapolis, his native city, to be with his family.

Since his arrival at the New Museum in 1985, Mr. Olander had been very much involved with video and performance art and with the theoretical issues and language of post-modernism.

Mr. Olander's 1986 exhibition ''Homovideo: Where We are Now'' included several videos responding to AIDS. In 1987, at his invitation, the group Act Up (AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power) presented an installation, in the museum's window on Broadway near Prince Street, juxtaposing information and statistics on AIDS with apparently indifferent, callous or manipulative responses to AIDS from national figures.

Mr. Olander received a Ph.D. in art history in 1983 from the New York University Institute of Fine Arts. In 1983 and 1984 he was acting director of the Allen Art Museum of Oberlin College, where he had been curator of modern art since 1979.

His longtime companion was Christopher Cox.

Mr. Olander is survived by his mother, Isabelle, of Minneapolis; a brother, Robert, and four sisters, Janet, Cathy, Pamela and Sheri.

From Judy Golden (Ogorinsky) on February 20th, 2018
Bill Olander taught me how to draw faces with oval-shaped heads in kindergarten.  My family had moved to St. Louis Park from the Northside of Minneapolis and he was the first friend I made at my new school-Elliot Elementary on Cedar Lake Road.  We continued to be close friends throughout the years sharing together our love of art.  After high school I lost touch with Bill and only recently was able to find this article about him on the internet.  He was a talented individual with an exceptional sense of humor.  I will always remember him with a smile.  

William Olander is probably best remembered for his activist work within the art world, particularly for his invitation to the collectivist organization ACT UP/NY (AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power, New York) to fill the main show window of the New Museum's building at 583 Broadway. Unveiled on November 20, 1987, the landmark installation is known as "Let the Record Show…," after Olander's statement in the accompanying brochure: "Let the record show that there are many in the community of art and artists who chose not to be silent in the 1980s." The display incorporated a bold neon sign stating "SILENCE = DEATH," which brought the group's slogan to a wider public awareness.

Steven Plath

Submitted by Sid Wood:

 He died during a highly publicized and brief attack (1 hour) in the early morning hours of March 28, 1971. 
 
 
1/46th Inf, 198th/196th Bde. Americal "The Professionals"
POSTED ON 3/2/01 - BY VETERANS, 1ST BN. 46TH INF. 198/196 BDES. AMERICAL
Slip off that pack. Set it down by the crooked trail. Drop that steel pot alongside. Shed those magazine-laden bandoliers away from your sweat-soaked shirt. Lay that silent weapon down and step out of the heat. Feel the soothing cool breeze right down to your soul ... and rest forever in the shade of our love, brother.

Steven Dale Plath was a member of Charlie Company, First Battalion, 46th Infantry, 196th Light Infantry Brigade, Americal Division. He is honored here by the veterans of 1/46th. 

"The Professionals," of 1/46 came in-country via the USS Upshur on October 4, 1967 as part of the 198th Light Infantry Brigade. The 198th became part of the Americal Division. After one month of orientation at Duc Pho, the battalion was deployed north of Chu Lai and patrolled from Hill 54, Hill 69, LZ Young and LZ Baldy in Quang Tin Province. In March of 1969, the battalion moved to LZ Professional, in the mountains southwest of Tien Phuoc, Quang Tin Province, to relieve a battered 1/52 Infantry of the 198th. In July of 1969, 1/46, which had been operating under operational control of the 196th LIB of the Americal, became a permanent member of that brigade. The battalion operated from LZ Professional until August of 1970. In February of 1970, the battalion established a temporary firebase at LZ Mary Ann, at a remote mountain site near Hau Duc, Quang Tin Province. The battalion returned to Mary Ann in the summer of 1970 and operated from there and LZ Young, which was between Tien Phuoc and Tam Ky, during 1970 and 1971. The battalion left Mary Ann in April of 1971 when the Americal Division was deactivated and the 196th Brigade reverted to its status as an independent brigade and deployed at Danang, to provide security for the port. In June, 1972, 1/46 left Vietnam. Of the names on this wall, 233 of them, close to half the battalion's actual field strength at any given time in Vietnam, were members of 1/46, or died while deployed with us.

Dick and I were in Boy Scouts together.  He was brought by his neighbors Rocky and Gary.  Dick was an instant hit and leader.  He dealt with his diabetes took care of his shots and insulin and wouldn't let it stand in his way.  He was always very loud, positive, and unafraid.  Dick once told me that with what he had dealt with all his life there was nothing in the woods that would scare him.  I am proud to have had my life influenced by knowing Dick Slice.
 
From Dave Wiest on February 7th, 2018
Dick was one of the Oak Hill neighborhood kids.  He lost his father quite early and I think that along with being a type 1 diabetic is why he got into some of the things he did.  He became the President of the BPM's a notorious MC club.  He was a small guy and it struck me funny when I saw him at Wagner's on his bike wearing his colors.  I tought it was a joke but Dick straightened me out, it was no joke. The last time I saw Steve Donahue, at his fundraiser, we talked about Dick for awhile. He was only the second guy I knew that was a type 1 diabetic.  Before dieing at a young age he lived his life te wway he wanted to.

Gregg Strohmeier

May 8th, 1950 - July 30th, 2015

Gregg Layman Strohmeier was 65 years old on May 8, 2015. Born in 1950 and proceeded in death by his parents, Donald and Verna Strohmeier. He was survived by his brother Jim of Duluth and his loving family, his wife of 34 years, Sandi, children Robert and Rebecca and granddaughter Peyton Joy. Gregg was a devoted man to his family, his church, his passions and the people he cared for most.
Born in Minneapolis, he grew up in St. Louis Park with many of his lifelong friends from Cedar Lake Elementary to St. Louis Park High School. Some of these were friends that he maintained for over 60 years. When he went to college, Gregg wanted to go into the astronaut program. NASA was winding down in the Apollo program and the Shuttle was only a dream. So he decided he wanted to graduate with a degree that met his passion of astronomy where he created and was the first to graduate from Mankato State College with a Bachelors in Space Science.
However, his father needed him more than astronomy and he went back to Minneapolis to join his brother as the co-owner of Pierson Wilcox Electric from 1977 to 1984. When his son Robert was born, he went to work for a longtime family friend at Williams Electric. In 1996, he further followed a long time passion of his love for firearms when he went to work for Federal Arms. He was an avid gun collector, a passion that he shared with his father. He decided to change his direction to another long time passion he got from his father, coin collection. He then went to work for Investment Rarities as a gold and silver broker. He loved the people he worked with including people those who were his customers for many years and relied on his advice.
He had other passions and values that were his church, hunting and the work of the Boy Scouts. He always wanted to give back. Through the years he has played a major role in Boy Scouts which started as his son’s troop leader. When his son left the Scouts, he continued and became a Commissioner. Even when that was done, he offered his cabin to his friend Dolf and his troop as they did weekend survival skills camp.
He worked with and was chairman of the properties committee at Westwood Lutheran Church in St. Louis Park for many years. Gregg was a Free Mason. He pursued his passions and what was important to him. Gregg was an also avid hunter and gun collector. A lifetime member of the NRA, he was a firm believer in Second Amendment Rights and was writing a book about Colt firearms.
More than anything, he loved spending time at his cabin in northern Minnesota with his family and friends. Built in the 40s by his parents, it was always a retreat to nature and time to spend with his family and friends. He valued his family above everything else and the Strohmeier house was always open and welcoming to the friends of his children. They too are grieving the loss of this very special man. He was loved by many and always cared more about his family than anything else.
Services will be held at Westwood Lutheran Church, 9001 Cedar Lake Rd, St. Louis Park, MN. Interment will be at Lake Kego in the fall where his ashes will be placed in a BioUrn so that he will grow into a mighty oak, representing the strength he always provided his family.
He will be missed for his gentle, kind spirit and his devotion to those he loved.

A man came up to us a little later, and asked about the missing sign.
 
From Brian Wuollet on April 27th, 2018
One of my many memories of Gregg:
 I remember when Gregg and I were 13-14 years old. One weekend, Gregg was mowing his lawn, with their new riding lawn mower. I had always wished for one myself...so, without him even having to ask...I agreed to "help" him mow. At that age, it was one of the most fun things to do before getting our driving permits...and we were actually working!
While I mowed, I noticed that he was getting pretty P.O.ed about something. It seems, someone had earlier put a large "Vote for Me" type, political sign up in the far corner of his yard. Gregg continued arguing to himself, saying that no one had the right to put up a sign in his yard without his permission!
I immediately agreed...and following Gregg's lead, helped him take down the sign and it's posts...proceeding to burned it all in his outdoor trash can.
I remember us commenting how fast it burned!

To know Gregg was to like Gregg. Outgoing, smart, sociable, funny...this could go on and on. Gregg and I go back to the pre-K days, about 1954. He was the kid who made faces at me in the 1st grade as his class would walk past my room drawing looks of disapproval from Miss Connors. The fun went on the rest of our school days and through our adult life. Our pre-marching band parties, his garage band parties, Super-Bees, motorcycle speed runs, my inflight pilot training in his plane so he could take a quick nap, many Viking games, boating, assembling the "Husky Lumber Jacks" (complete with song) to cut down a menacing tree at his cabin on Lake Kego, our family parties celebrating anything...like I said, this really could go on and on. To know Gregg was to like Gregg. He was my confidante, my buddy. ...my life long friend and I miss him...

My clearest memory of Gregg is this: He had an uncanny ability to wait until Merv Lysing wasn't looking and then issue a huge bleat from his tuba - something that Merv hated.

Poor Merv would spin around, only to see three tuba players, looking angelic. He knew exactly who had done it, but couldn't say a word 'cause he didn't see it. I'm sorry to learn of Greggs. passing.

From Barb McGlynn on February 3rd, 2018
When he passed it was a big shock for everyone.  I heard he just had a full check up before he died. I don't trust doctors any longer. Always get a second opinon. That saved my life. Love to all
 
From Ellen Joseph on January 28th, 2018
Steve was one of my best friends, starting in grade school at Fern Hill, up until the day we lost him.  What a guy.  
I remember how he got me busted in 3rd grade...Miss Kjos's class...me?  Busted by bad behavior?  He did it by bouncing a pencil on the floor by the eraser and then happily blaming it on me.

From Ed Fortier on May 4th, 2018
Chuck was really a great guy. He helped me in graphic arts class with his knowledge of printing presses. He was also one of the first friends I made in kindergarten. He showed me the art of pulling threads out my "rest" rug, soaking them in my mouth and flicking them at our fellow classmates. Ran into Chuck several times at Menards where he was purchasing supplies for his construction business. Also in Duluth where he was getting some R&R time with his wife, children, and grandchildren. Was very sad to hear of his passing.
