In Memoriam: Pat Owen updated the 'BP Deceased List' 28Sep15. (Also, see the Oct.15 'Bushy Tales')
This is email message [excerpt] was sent by Gary on 30Jul16 with the July '16 issue of "Bushy Tales" - "The May 2016 issue of "Bushy Tales" presents a few tributes to Gerald "Gary" Earl Schroeder (14Nov36-26Mar16.) He was truly amazing. His compassion and generosity to others is beyond what many of us can comprehend. As you can clearly see in the attached tribute by the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary folks with whom he worked, he was not your average Coast Guard Auxiliary member! Gary was all in with everything he did. Those of you who are moved to write a tribute to Gary, please do so and send it along. The tribute edition of "Bushy Tales" dedicated to Gary Schroeder is at: May_2016_issue.pdf (.pdf)" -- Your Editor, Bill Rumble.

Sadly, Wanda, a LCHS alumna (Class of '60 photo) who created and for many years maintained this Web site: http// for others's memories, has left us.
