There is a memorial for Fullerton's war dead at Hillcrest Park and Vietnam deaths are included. Stan Fuller is one but there are others that sound like people that had been at SHHS. There's a Jim Crawfor and a Scott McKinley.

Just before Christmas in 1968 (I was at Fort Bliss studying Vietnamese),I saw a picture of Stan Fuller on the front page of Army Times. He was jumping rope for some Vietnamese children.

The morning after I got home for Christmas leave, my dad told me that he'd heard on the radio that a Sunny Hills grad had gotten killed over there. I thought of the picture of Stan and asked if it was Stan Fuller. Dad had this odd look on his face and said it might have been. I wondered about this for years until I went to Hillcrest after the Vietnam names were put up about 1991 or so and there was his. The auditorium at Huntington Beach High School has plaques with OC war deaths and Stan is there too.

Is the Class of '67 having a 45th reunion? I missed the 40th.

Thank you, Paul, for this incredible website. Finding friends/teachers on the Internet has long been an interest (and a challenge), but this makes it all much easier. Perusing the different sections has surfaced many different emotions. The passing of Mrs. Gary and Coach Payne hit me very hard. I loved those guys. In different ways, both were major influences on my life, certainly then but often in the years since graduation. I spoke to Mrs. Gary in the mid-1990s and told her how much love and respect so many of us had for her. Damn. Like many others, I was struck by Stan (Martin) Roberts' very touching eulogy for Eric Yoder. Beautifully done. I want to thank Candy Moore for her comments on my mom's passing. Very thoughtful and appreciated. I remain in touch with Rob Parker (Virginia) and Bob Barrington (California). Does anyone know how to reach the remaining Fuller brother (Stanley and Gary have passed)? Wishing you all well. Bob (bobpolky@gmail.com)

Thank you for creating such a wonderful web site! I found it today, thanks to Bonnie Rodecker and her posts on the "Growing Up in Fullerton" page on Facebook. I'm sad to see so many of my friends names on the Memorial page but enjoyed what you had posted about them. I was good friends with Eric Yoder and was very touched by Stan/Martin's eulogy.
I went to Hermosa Drive, Ladera Vista and SHHS but had to leave in my senior year (horror of horrors!) as my family moveed to Palos Verdes Estates but have always considered myself a Lancer first, Class of '66.
Please add my name to any lists you have created for the web site. I'm going to make sure others I know from SHHS are aware of your site.

Love the site, Paul. You need to list George Needham '67 under "pilots." He is just retiring from 34 years with American Airlines. He flies 777s to India every couple of weeks. He and I used to go down to the Fullerton airport before school to see how many planes we could identify. He followed his dream!

Glad you're here, Mike. A few other people here are also retired and did what you did. Make this little website your second (or third, or fourth) home, OK?

I haven't heard anything myself, Richard.

You should probably ask the 1962 and 1963 reunion committee leaders. I'm not sure who they are now.

Just noted that some info listed for me was incorrect. I was principal at Sonora High and Fullerton High but was never principal at SHHS. I taught high school English (as a foreign language) in Iran for two years, but I never taught high school English in the States. Thanks for the "Spoon." I appreciate the news.

I attended the memorial service for SHHS Coach Wayne Payne on Sept 16. For those of us who knew him, our lives were forever enriched. For those of you who didn't know him, he was one helluva man. He left SHHS in 1966 (our loss) to coach at Sonora. His infectious smile, deep, gravelly voice and caring manner were trademarks of a special man.
He was born to teach and coach and he touched the lives of many people. I was one of the lucky ones who were blessed call him coach.
RIP my friend.

I haven't checked in for awhile and I was unexpectedly saddened to see that Miss Gary, my sophomore English teacher, had died last year. She was a very caring and helpful and smart teacher. I was a bit surprised--I shouldn't have been I guess--to see that she was only a few years older than we were: less than a decade. Of course after all of these years I don't remember much specifically but I do remember that she gave us all a mimeographed handout, "The Key to 100,000 Words" I believe it was titled. It provided a list of common Latin prefixes, suffixes, and roots and was helpful in working out the meanings to perhaps unfamiliar words encountered for the first time. I kept it through college and may still have it in a box somewhere but I haven't seen it for many years. My condolences to her family. She was hugely influential in my education and I've appreciated her more and more as the years go by. Requiescat in pace et amore, Miss Gary.
