Congratulations to my classmate Benny Holt for retiring after 47 years of being a life guard and more years of being a mentor, role model and pal to the youth of South Bay. All of the awards and accolades you received were well deserved. You do the mighty class of '61 proud Benny. Kudos to you.

Hello fellow Mariners. I just got back from IB and saw some old friends, Bob Ferons, Dale Reese and Curtis Brackeen. We tipped a few at Ye Old Plank Inn and gossiped about old times.

Dale said some of you might be interested in a play I wrote and is published through Trafford Publishers. It's also available on Kindle through Amazon. It's titled MARINERS: http://www.amazon.com/Mariners-Ernest-J-Patterson/dp/1490711147

Hi John,

I have not yet received any information on a class of 1975 reunion. But just because I haven’t been notified doesn’t mean there isn’t one in the works.

All I can advise at, this point, is that you check back periodically to our Reunion page for an announcement of it. Any information I get about reunions I will post there.


....and the beat goes on....

Your Mariner brother

BURKE

W. Burke Mills was an English teacher who showed us how to read and critique plays, essays and novels and for plot and subtleties.

He was director of the adult school summer “one act play festival” where he taught us how to act in and direct one act plays and have a great time doing it.

He taught driver’s education and I learned how to drive a car without burning rubber. He taught us all the limits of poor behavior with his infectious smile.

He edited the “Summer Breeze” school newspaper where he let me write book reviews under the pseudonym Sterling Paradise and then kicked me off the paper for my controversial praising review of Jack Kerouac’s “On the Road.”

He put me on the school yearbook staff and he gave me a “perpetual hall pass” to get me out of classes to take photos which I may have used a little too often.

He treated me like a person and a friend. He gave me confidence to try new things; he encouraged me to be more than I thought I was.

He was always well groomed. He helped me with my manners and taught me how to tie a tie.

I was a guest in his home many, many times ... my friend Ed and I made many walking trips carrying furniture or his latest treasure from “Jessie’s Opportunity Shop” a few blocks away to his garage as it became his den.

We loved watching his unique way of commenting or “double talking” over TV newscasts.

Burke along with my friends Ed, Eileen and Don are the reason I went to college and became a teacher.

I named my son for “Geoffrey” Chaucer and W. “Burke” Mills because of his influence.

I and my wife, Eileen Luna, last saw him right after the turn of the century at his home in Imperial Beach before he got sick. He was my teacher and my friend and like many others I too owe him much.

I just noticed my best friend, Carol Henigan '62, has completed her journey. My prayers go out to Gale and their family. She was special to me because she was always my "friend" and it didn't matter what the "cliques" thought; she was always there for me. We enjoyed a lot of good times together, and I have many fond memories of Carol. God bless.
