Married to Betty for 46 years. Spent 26 years in Radio-TV-Film, then joined SAS Institute and switched to Statistical Quality Control software marketing, and programming for 18 years.

Have been in Austin since 1989. Since retiring, I'm active in the Austin Pond Society, the Austin Area Garden Council, and now build garden railroads all over he country. KLRU's "Central Texas Gardener" did a feature on me and my railroad that is on YouTube at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XVmFlySywxU.

I thanked you and Carol for the kind comments about Butch. Unfortunately, I see where the site only shows my thanking Carol. So thank you too Florence. :-)

While looking for a lost classmate, Richard “Butch” Reiter, sadly I came across an obituary published in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on May 3, 2111. So, I think Butch should move from “Lost Classmate” to “In Memoriam.” Butch and I had been friends since 7th-grade, had a “Fandango” summer after graduation, and were roommates at UT Austin the first semester (that’s all I lasted!). My hope is he would pull a Mark Twain, join this site, and say reports of his death were premature. But the age and ancestry fit. L’chaim Butch!

I saw on the news that Hillcrest had a 25-yr old basketball player last season. Thought it funny, but the player is in big trouble.

A big "Thank You!" to all that helped put on a wonderful weekend. It was LOT of fun! I also want to thank all the spouses and significant others (including my wife) who attended even though they didn't go to school with us. I met many nice partners of our classmates. It was great to see so many friends after so many years, though sad not seeing those no longer with us.
