    I could not find obit for Craig Timko. Does anyone know if is listed somewhere?

      Oh no, did Craig Timko pass? Hope you are wrong. Please post if you hear anything. His locker was next to mine and he is a great guy. How very sad if this is true.

    Dear Class of ’64,
    Can it be 55 years since we graduated? Amazing! I have very fond memories of our days at RBHS, especially homecoming and building floats for the parade. Do they still do that?

    Thank you, Kevin Keogh, and everyone on the organizing committee. You’ve done a great job in getting this reunion together.

    Unfortunately, I won’t be able to attend. I’ll be in Oregon on a Roads Scholar trip with my husband’s stepmom. She wanted to see the Oregon Coast, and I agreed (long ago) to accompany her. However, I very much hope to see you all for the 60th reunion.

    Best wishes to all, Carol De Vita

    Thanks for the invitation. It does not seem like 55 years. Thanks to everyone who has worked so hard to make this reunion come together. It may seem like a thankless job but everyone who you have invited and those who attend will benefit from your efforts. The memories you have prompted are priceless. I have been in Texas for the last 24 years. My October is filled with family events. Children Grandchildren and a Cruise will not allow me to come this time but I look forward to 5 years from now.
    Thanks again and have a Ball.

    The Homecoming game will not be in Shuey Stadium. Sadly since the new grandstand has been built, the stadium has been renamed Kennelly Stadium after the former mayor of Chicago.

    • Joe Hrach June 4, 2019 at 9:14 pm #

      Interesting! He didn’t do anything spectacular in his 2 terms as mayor like Anton Cermak who took a bullet for Roosevelt. They should have named it Cermak Stadium in honor of Anton Cermak.

    Still trying to find out how and when to pay for the reunion.

    I will not be able to attend the Riverside Brookfield High School 1964 Class Reunion.
    I am Retired. I worked at A.O. Smith Corporation in Milwaukee, WI until I moved to Phoenix, AZ area.

    Doubt if I will make it to the reunion, this would be only the second one I’ve heard about, glad you found me. Think of those days and friends often!
    ( receiving this makes me feel like it’s a “special” request invite!) Love and peace to all (if you couldn’t tell I now live in a Bible Belt community in mid florida)
