I'm starting up a nonprofit to pay education expenses for gifted, lower income music students. We hope to begin mentoring students spring 2015 with the thought of eventually covering music school tuition.

School Story

I am a terrible dancer, but somehow I was asked to perform in the Rhythmette Revue. Some guys learned the steps the first day, but I had to come in for extra practice, still couldn't get the hang of it. Miss Stuckey wanted to kick me out, but I finally started to catch on, and by the time the show's run was over I had it down, could even smile on stage. I can still remember the routine to this day.

Beverly and I were in the same fourth grade class at Paradise School, occasionally in classes together after that. When we chatted and danced for a minute at the 40-year reunion she mentioned her family, how proud she was.  We were never close friends, but I remember her as serious, quiet, intelligent, a contributor.  I'm sure she was a wonderful elemntary school teacher.

Very sorry to hear about Quincy Bolden and Jim Gibbs right after the Ronnie Vause shocker. I didn't know Quincy, but was friends with Jim and Ronnie with a sense of what they were about.  Junior year Jim, Ronnie, and I were in the same home room, American History taught by Mr. Knapp and Mr. Alleman.  It is clear military service influenced the lives of all three departed.   

As I remember him from high school Jim studied, followed the rules, sometimes snuck in his dry humor but took life seriously.  He struggled with mixed feelings over his Vietnam experience leaving him a heightened philosphical awareness.  Eventually he became something of a free spirit removed from the mainstream.

The young Ronnie focused on having a good time, didn't much care about good grades or perfect attendance. He came out of the Navy with self-discipline, direction, understanding.  He never lost the ability to enjoy life, but he pursued a career at the heart of the establishment, bought into the American way, waved the flag.  

Ronnie and Jim both succeeded at life but evidence suggests they exchanged places along the way.  I'd be happy to see comments on this from those who knew them.

Jim, Remember lunch basketball at Fremont, destroying your San Remo Italian boots on the blacktop? It didn't really matter for me since I only wore Carl's shoes. Also finessing each other through Mr. Priest's Algebra class by passing homework we were supposed to correct ahead to the next student, then exchanging with each other. He was very happy with you as a partner in the dental practice, but my cousin Dwayne Ence once told me with your talent you should have been an artist. Looks like you've fixed that now.
