Memories Before High School (neighborhood, elementary & jr high, etc.):

Growing up in Shelby, NC, moving to Gastonia in 1955, going to Victory School for 8th and 9th grades, and making lots of friends. Making money caddying at Municipal Golf Course, mowing grass and washing cars.

Special School Memories:

Forming close friendships, hanging out and learning to smoke because it was "cool" (thank the Lord for helping me quit this nasty habit on March 8, 1980), going to ball games, Hamps after school, working at Smith's Drug Store, dating younger girls because girls my age were "too old", Gastonia Boys Club initiation week, and beach trips. Having Mrs. Taylor for senior English and having to learn and recite the first 12 lines of the Canterbury Tales in Old English. More great times than space allows.

Since School...:

Graduated UCLA * March 1964
Started with IBM in Charlotte April 1964
Married Linda Alexander from Hayesville, NC, May 1964.
Became a father in Greensboro in September 1968.
Retired from IBM in Raleigh, April 1994.
Became a field hand in Hayesville, NC in September 1994.
Became a grandfather in Birmingham in December 2005.
Became a BOOBs club member in Cullowhee in July 2009. (Burned Out Old Buddies) See below.

That's it... Those are the really important dates in my life so far. More to come I hope.

* UCLA = University of Carolina Left of Asheville, otherwise known as Western Carolina College.

Happy birthday a day late as usual and more'n a dollar shirt as usual. I sincerely hope you had a nice relaxing day doing whatever you wished. You are certainly among a very select group of my favorite lady classmates. Say hey to Frank and I'm sorry I couldn't spend a little more time with y'all at our reunion. If we ever have another one, I hopd we will be given more time to mingle and maybe a little less handing our prizes and praying. Praying is a mighty good thing to do so I'm going to pray for more time with friends. As always, I wish you and Frank the very best of everything. I am currently at my quiet place in Hayesville.

Happy Birthday again Chipper! I hope you’re having a great Special Day! Hope
the weather in Raleigh is good and you can get out. I would suggest that you go over to the NC State campus and enjoy the academic atmosphere. Ha!

Chip Brunnemer has a birthday today.

Chipper, I’ve often wondered how you got taller than me, how you always have a smile and have a positive attitude and don’t complain about your aches & pains, etc.
I think I may have the answer: you’re 31 days younger than me which allows you to tell others (that don’t know the truth) that you’re only 80 and Moon is 81 years old! You just wait old buddy, someday soon you’ll catch up to me! Then everything will change like it has for me (if you’re lucky)! Ha! I Love Life and you too!

I regret that I will be unable to participate in this reunion. It will be the first one I have missed. I am well, but Linda is not and I can't leave her by herself. Her issues are related to a recent shoulder replacement surgery and continuing back issues that came about as the result of a really bad fall in 2019. I will really miss seeing all of you. I love you all, and yes, even the guys. We'll call it avuncular love. I know some of the guys will have to look that up.

What an absolutely wonderful obituary! Reading this wonderfully expressed tribute to Gayle would convince anyone that she was a women who loved mightily and was loved in the same way. Rest in peace sweet lady.

Just received the sad news about our friend and classmate, Nick Mentavlos. Nick has always been such a nice and gentle person. It's hard to visualize him as a rough and tough Secret Service agent protecting the life of George H.W. Bush. I am so saddened by this news and wish all his family the strength they need to deal with his condition.
