We are sorry to announce that on July 4, 2010,  just two weeks before our 45th class reunion, William Henry "Bill" Knox died while flying his exhibition/air racing Schleicher ASW-20 glider near St. Louis, MO.  Bill was an avid glider pilot and had soared in many areas of the country.  He died while pursuing a hobby that he loved.  He took his first class in calculus from the University of Kansas when he graduated from grade 8.  He graduated from Circleville High School in 1965, earned a bachelor of arts in mathematics from The Ohio State University in 1969, and received a masters of arts in mathematics from the University of Maryland in 1974, and served a tour of duty in the U.S. Army.  He worked for the Naval Research Laboratory and then with a series of aircraft manufacturers working on military contracts.  His current employer was Boeing where he worked as a senior technical engineer.  Bill is survived by his son Samuel, wife of 39 years, Deana (nee Bushee) Knox of Litchfield, IL, his parents Kenneth L. and Margaret Knox and his sister, Sarah Knox, all of Cincinnati and his brother, Peter L. Knox of Brookline, Mass.  Arrangements were completed by the family.  Donations in his memory to the Saint Louis Soaring Association or the Mid-Atlantic Soaring Association would be appreciated.

After sending out the invitations for our 45th class reunion, we received a note from Myra Patchen, (Bruce Lindsey's wife) saying that Bruce passed away on October 30, 2009.  He was on vacation cruising in the middle of the ocean, having a great time and died suddenly in the night.  She said she knew he enjoyed the reunions and would want us to know.  Myra's address is: Myra Patchen, 11804 Green Look Place, Fairfax, VA  22033 to send your condolences..

With regret, we have lost another classmate.  George Douglas Roth  passed away at his home in Seneca, SC on Friday, February 12, 2010.      We were told he had a seizure a few weeks ago and went to the hospital for tests and nothing was found.  Friday, February 12, 2010 his wife came home for lunch and found him dead.   This information came from Bruce Helwagen, Doug's cousin.   If you want to send cards, his wife's name is Aleda Roth, 606 Cross Creek Drive, Seneca, SC  29678-1107.  Doug will certainly be in all of our hearts this reunion year.  Obit can be viewed on Wellman Funeral Home website.
