Sue Gorrindo, ’64, 1946-2018


Sue died after a long illness on August 29, 2018. 

She attended Fullerton Junior College and graduated from San Jose State. She worked for Hewlett Packard for over thirty years. 

After Sue retired, she took up raising and caring for alpacas, an avocation that suited her kind, gentle nature. 

She was a loyal Class of 1964 Lancer with dozens of good Lancer friends all her life. She was a enthusiastic member of many ’64 reunion committees, where her classmates could depend on her implicitly. 

Sue was a hearty, loving woman who enjoyed life tremendously. She loved to laugh and alway had a good joke ready. She was also proud of her Basque ancestry. 

Sue’s departure from this earth will leave great sadness in the 1960s Sunny Hills High School community, but when the time comes for every one of her friends, she’ll be waiting at the Pearly Gate with a big smile and a warm hug.

Thinking of Sue today. I miss her terribly. She was always someone I could count on to talk to at H-P and gave great advice. When my infant son died, she called me every day at home to check on me. That is a true friend. I hope I can be that same wonderful person to some one in the future. She was a great example of what a friend should be. Miss you Sue. Until we meet again??

Sue, Becky and I were great friends. Becky was my maid of honor when I married at 17, we kept in touch over the years and we'd meet up as often as possible. I was always going to go up and check out her Alpaca farm.I was heartbroken to hear of her passing. She was a fighter and very tender-hearted, this world will not be the same without her. Rest easy my dear friend, and you and Becky, I'm sure, are having a great reunion! I shall miss you until we meet again.??

Sue was everyone’s friend. She was truly a wonderful friend to virtually everybody who knew her. I loved her positive attitude and always upbeat personality. Her presence will be missed at all of our future reunions.
She’s in good hands, cuz God needs people like her. GX8mK3
