My wife's brother has passed away. We will not be able to attend the reunion since there is a conflict with his services. He has suffered with diabetes since he was 12. My wife donated him a kidney in 1990. I enjoyed my 6 years in El Paso attending Crosby in the 7th grade and leaving for the University of New Mexico after we graduated. Many may not remember me for I spent most of my time at the tennis courts where my Dad was actually the tennis coach.
In 1972, I entered Baylor College of Dentistry where I met Anne who was in Dental Hygiene School. We have two daughters who attended Baylor in Waco. Kelley is married and has a boy 8 and a girl 5, Tate and Blakeley. My younger daughter Hayley is engaged to be married next July. We live in the Lakewood area of Dallas and enjoy what it has to offer.
I practiced for 31 years and then was an instructor at Baylor for ten years, retiring in 2012.
I have found golf as of 8 years ago and it has been an enjoyable adult Easter Egg hunt. We have a place in Bosque county Texas we have enjoyed. We visit Albuquerque and Santa Fe often to keep in touch with college friends.
I surely miss the desert and miss the early 60's in EP. Best of times.
Hope all have a great time at the reunion. Prayers for all. God bless, Van.

Ken, great to see you on the 66 site. Do you know Bill Stern? He's on my assigned list for locating and notifying of the 66 Reunion next October. I'm told that he lives in Chaparral but I can't find a number, address, or email for him.

Having lower back surgery, scheduled for 9/28/16, so probably will be in no shape to travel to El Paso for the reunion. It would be fun to see everybody again. :-)

John Phillip Cancellare was a member of a large Catholic family headed by by Anthony Cancellare, who frequently worked as a substute at Irvin. All of the Cancellare boys served in the Armed forces.  John was a Vietnam vet. He died on December 30, 1999. He was in my Englsh class with Miss Yates, where he kept us all laughing.  He was good at keeping the class distracted and frequently got us out of taking a test due to the uproariious laughter in the classroom. May he rest in peace.

I have added a new webpage so we can all see who will be attending the 50th reunion and what event they have signed up for. The new webpage is called “Attending Events at 50th Reunion”.

I have noticed that there has not been a lot of classmates sign up for the Irvin High School tour for Saturday morning. I just want everyone know that this tour is not the tours we received in past reunion. IHS tours have gone to a new level and now the students post a video of the tour on YouTube. I talked to a lot of the classmate from 65 and they said the tour was amazing. The class of ’65 50th reunion YouTube video can be seen from the link below:

I guess our website has gone international. I received this e-mail from Guy Eveillard who now lives in Toulon, France. What a nice surprise and a compliment for our French teacher Mrs. Margaret S. Tolbert:

From August 1965 to August 1966, I was a French Air Force student in Fort Bliss. I met Mrs. TOLBERT and I used to go to her French class in Irvin High School to read French texts and to discuss with students. Some of these students were from 67 but I remember some of 66. I still have the "year book" of 66 class. These moments are among the best of my life. Thanks to make a communication from me during your 50gth reunion. Guy EVEILLARD

To celebrate our 50th Reunion, Ruben Rosario designed and created a poster to be on display during our 50th reunion. I have replaced the picture of our school in the top left hand corner of our website with the image of Ruben’s poster. To see a real size image of this absolutely fantastic poster select Photo Gallery at the top of our website and in the drop downs select Reunions. On that webpage you can select 50th Reunion and then select the picture of the poster to make the image larger. Thanks Ruben for all your hard work, well done amigo.
