Go to Class of 62's 45th Reunion
2/15/205 8:25 AM
Becky, I don't think you remember me, but my brother Leonard (AKA: Len) and I were at Milo Academy in 1961 and half of 1962 before going on to Lodi Academy and graduating with their Class of '62.
I was surfing the web and saw your site with the 1962 alums. Believe it or not, I recognize some of the names.
You may find out more about me if you go to: http://www.qrz.com/ and type in KD3FB where it says "Get Call Sign."

Hey Lawrence (didn't we call you Larry?)
It was great to hear from you! Also had fun reading about you, and seeing you upon that beautiful Fatboy! Both my husband and I have 2 Harleys each-----a lot of fun! Would you mind of we put your photo and Bio up on our Milo page? You should come out to a reunion sometime---------Milo is a very beautiful place-----try to tell that to a 16yr old! Where is your brother? You are twins, right? I think Ric Hufnagel also left Milo and graduated from Lodi. Sandy Anderson Smith lives in this area, as does Rudy Yost and his wife Ginny Garvin Yost-----Do you remember Dale Bernard? He also lives nearby.
Thanks for the email , and let me know about using your photo.

Yep Becky, they call me Larry and my brother and I were twins. I do recall, now that you mentioned it, that Rick Hufnagel also graduated from Lodi. Yes, I remember Dale Bernard. Some apples never fall far from the tree, do they? :-)
The sight to which I referred you is actually an Amateur (ham) radio web directory, but you can use it if you wish. My brother is also a Harley rider and a Police Officer for Los Angeles. He and a friend shipped their bikes back here and we spent two weeks touring the North East.
I am forwarding this email on to Len. Perhaps, we can make it to a reunion one of these years.
Good hearing from you. It looks like you've had an active and interesting life.
Stay in touch.
