As we reminisce the good old days, we also mourn the loss of classmates passed away and share the sad remembrance of losing our beautiful class valedictorian, Rene’ Routon, just prior to our 10th class reunion. The parents of Rene’ wrote a thank you to the Class of 1979 for flowers sent. The letter was read to all at the reunion in 1989. Rene’ was intelligent, kind, and beautiful inside and out.
Pete was someone very special to the Art Club as well as to all his friend. He was a fun-loving guy with a smile for everyone and a special one for a friend. because Pete set such a good example, his lead was often hard to follow. His friends could always depend on him to be friendly, happy, and to enjoy life with every passing day. He possessed a warm glow that radiated in his presence. All who know Pete will miss him, but they can live for the day when they will see his smile again.
