Twenty-twenty three ... if only, knowing "then" that which We know now ! Nineteen forty six - nineteen sixty four, brief in scale to the span of life !
Our "paths taken", bifurcations abound, those choices formulate, adding to Our wealth of experiences ! We are the "numerators", this forum is the "common denominator" in the equation of life as We know it. Interchange of thoughts as well as ideas is crucial for Our joys and Our sorrows. "Retired" connotes ( fill in Your interpretation) a myriad of opportunities ! Twenty years retired, shifted paradigms allows for plus chapters in "My book" .
Regardless of graduation chronologies, dare to be a part of something larger, be another "town crier" for Claremont, CA !! Accolades sent to Sharon
Esterley, CHS- nineteen sixty one !!!!

Erik Seineke has left an In Memory comment for Clive Avon "Pete" Fullerton.

The Pete Fullerton...he was a childhood friend and neighbour! The mid 1950s...the best time to be a kid in Claremont, CA! The "kids" were better at socializing and being adventurous! My fragmented family moved away from St. Bonaventure Drive in 1959, 12 years young, and will remember those days of innocence and laughter! Pete and Gaylord would always be involved in the street games when We stayed out until it was dark! Honored to have known the earlier version...with all his potentials yet to bloom! Rest knowing Your amazing contributions are Your legacy !!!

Lost but, not forgotten...or has he simply outlived his loved ones ! Imagine...his life lived as a Geologist, events to take him "into the field" and yet, apparently, made his home close to Claremont in Pasadena, CA !!  Perhaps, as You read this, You may be inspired to author sentiments here and/or otherwise souls !! R...I...P !!!

Billy Barbour...a fellow classmate  at Oakmont Elementary School. The summer between 8th and 9th, I had to move away from Claremont and all My friends. Fast forward to 1984...My wonderful wife, Marsha, accompanied Me and when We registered on Friday, he was just behind Us in line. 24 years...was how long it was since seeing any classmates, not enough time to attempt to "fit back in"! He was MIA here and on Facebook and now his story remains  untold, RIP My long lost friend !

Alex Hughes - I have, finally, solved "The Great Mystery of 1961" - in the summer of 1960, My Dad moved My older sister and Myself to live with his fiance (she was 28 - Dad was 51). i started 9th Grade in Fontana at Fontana Junior High. Mr. Hughes taught Student Government and Civics there and signed My 1961 Yearbook "Ladle" (part of the steel-making process). I asked him to sign next to his photo. Found that yearbook today, Jan. 9, 2021 (Joan Baez's 80th B-Day) published 60 years back! He was an excellent teacher, I let the teachers I enjoyed sign, very likeable and gave respect where respect was given. I read that He started his Claremont Career in 1966 - I believe He left the Fontana School District after 1964.smiley

Coach McCarthy - lost but not forgotten !

He was intense in his style - either You were in or You were out !!

His agenda was perfect for Me - childhood Asthma & extensive allergies kept 

Me back from other sports. He pushed and I responded - He took Us through

the U. S. Navy Survivor & Rescue training @ CJHS. Through the years, I have

developed a respect for all things "H2O" - whether it be body surfing in California

and Hawai'i OR rafting many of the rivers in the western U.S. ! My 8-day, 270 mile

raft trip down the Colorado in the Grand Canyon was the best !

Thank You for instilling, in Me, the confidence I needed most !!!

Rest in Peace (with Your life jacket on) - Erik Seineke in Prescott, AZ

Erik Seineke has left an In Memory comment for Patricia Peterson Rohrs.
Sep 23, 2019 at 9:33 AM

Mrs. Rohrs was My 2nd grade teacher at Oakmont Elementary School circa 1953 - I

remember how she would excite Us into learning and absorbing in those formative years.

I think My sister was friends with the daughters and had a crush on Fred, Jr. !

I hope this message is read by the survivors in the family.

Deepest condolences and a tribute the long life of a fine person!!

Respectfully, Erik Seineke in Prescott, AZ    

Post script : I still have the class picture from Our 2nd grade class !!!

To Mrs. Hargrave and Your extended family - May i call You Katie ??

I grew up in Claremont, CA as well and have wonderful memories !

Reading "In memorium"  is very sharing and portraying a full life lead by Randy and, of course,

Yourself and family to continue to "carry the torch" for all things Hargrave !

I was Class of 1964 and remember riding My bicycle around town and spotting Randy in

His brand- spanking- new 1957 Chevy BelAir - wow! He had it converted to a stick, as I recall,

the front suspension dropped, chrome reversed rims and the entire front end flamed !!

I was 12 years on this earth at the time and so impressed that I vowed to, one day, own My

first car and it would be the same color and model as Randy's '57 !! I moved out on My Own at 17

and by the time I got My drivers license at 18, I bought a '57 Belair i saw at the Mardi Gra at UCLA.

That was 1965 - took some time for Me to fulfil the promise to Myself. I, too, followed a path of 

drag racing, muscle cars and one of the founders of the Z28 Club of Southern California & club racing

at Riverside Raceway! Thank You Randy, RIP- Erik Seineke in Prescott, AZ.
