After New Trier, I attended Parsons College in Fairfield, Iowa from June 1963 to February 1964, and again from February 1967 to June 1968. In June, 1968, my college sweetheart and I left school to get married, and I began my career as a radio announcer. Was divorced in 1971, married my present wife in 1972, and ultimately spent 34 years in radio broadcasting. Left radio in 2002 and spent the next 9 years as a Registration and Scheduling Specialist at Lahey Clinic in Peabody, Massachusetts. Retired from Lahey on 12/31/2011 (details on my facebook timeline). **UPDATE** As of 2018, I'm back on the air...sort of. I and several other former announcers from the original WJIB-FM in Boston are on a web stream re-creation called "JIB on the Web". Lots of fun!!

School Story

I arrived at New Trier in June 1959 to attend summer school (pre-algebra). I was in Mr. Morey's homeroom, and my favorite class was the mechanical drawing course I took during my senior year. Most notable personality I met at New Trier: guitarist Mike Bloomfield (we were both in the same pre-algebra class during summer school in 1959). Activities included Traffic Squad and Usher Corps.

I knew Rick throughout high school and Parsons College in Fairfield, Iowa, where he, Barry Gerber and I were roommates in the fall of 1963. During our New Trier years, the three of us spent a lot of time over at Barry's house, tinkering with Barry's Chrysler 300F. Rick was forever under the hood, on a creeper under the car, always with a socket wrench or something in his hand. Rick was one of my closest and dearest friends, and there are many funny, fascinating and even tragic stories I could share in a different forum. The last time I spoke with Rick was at the 50th Class Reunion back in 2013, when a group of us set up a Skype call to him at his sister's house in Wisconsin. At that point he was living in a nursing home, but he was very excited to be able to connect with us that day. I will always remember him with great love and affection. Rest in peace, old friend...

I didn't know Dick other than his being one of my classmates, but I do remember him being in a few of my classes during my four years at New Trier. He was always a happy, upbeat young man and very popular. It's always tough to hear about the passing of one of our classmates, and I know he'll be missed a great deal. R.I.P., Dick...

Steve was a very good guitarist, and although I never played in a band or anything with him, I heard him play numerous times at various New Trier student functions. I, too, was shocked to hear of his passing many years ago.
