Sunset High School
Class Of 1961

Woody and I have moved to Wilsonville, OR in the Charonneau area. We have been here since April of 2017. Love the area and we are closer to family.

Just a little announcement that I am now officially retired - starting a new chapter in my life. Hey, and now I am really available for LUNCH!

Hey there, thanks to all on the committee,it was great to re-connect with everyone and the website with its security and ability to display comments, resumes' and pictures was outstanding..!! I was sorry that previous plans kept me from attending and that I could not attend to promote my idea of building a scholaship for deserving Seniors. As a small class we seem to have achieved a lot of high levels in many different areas.... Candy, Skip, Jud, Mark, and many more the number of college professors that not only taught many years and students but achieved Emeritous status...! And then there were the civil servants that worked in many fields (some were at the "breakthrough" time of there existence) like computers, public safety and more were great parents...really neat. Thank you...bob Cravens


It is with sadness that I tell you of Del Pearson's death on Oct. 15th, 2011. His service will be on Friday, October 28 at 10:00, Willamette National Cemetery. He had a long illness and was glad to leave it behind. Mark Greathouse and I visited him. All his Cedar Mill Grade School and Sunset High friends will miss him.

>                                 I'll never forget the first time we met;
>                                 We tried so hard to impress.
>                                 We drove fancy cars, smoked big cigars,

>                                 It was quite an affair; the whole class was there.
>                                 It was held at a fancy hotel.
>                                 We wined, and we dined, and we acted refined,
>                                 And everyone thought it was swell.
>                                 The men all conversed about who had been first
>                                 To achieve great fortune and fame.
>                                 Meanwhile, their spouses described their fine houses
>                                 And how beautiful their children became.
>                                 The homecoming queen, who once had been lean,

>                                 Another was given to the grad who had driven
>                                 The farthest to attend the feast.
>                                 They took a class picture, a curious mixture
>                                 Of beehives, crew cuts and wide ties.
>                                 Tall, short, or skinny, the style was the mini;
>                                 You never saw so many thighs.
>                                 At our next get-together, no one cared whether
>                                 They impressed their classmates or not.
>                                 The mood was informal, a whole lot more normal;
>                                 By this time we'd all gone to pot.
>                                 It was held out-of-doors, at the lake shores;
>                                 We ate hamburgers, coleslaw, and beans.
>                                 Then most of us lay around in the shade,
>                                 In our comfortable T-shirts and jeans.
>                                 By the fiftieth year, it was abundantly clear,
>                                 We were definitely over the hill.
>                                 Those who weren't dead had to crawl out of bed,
>                                 And be home in time for their pill.
>                                 And now I can't wait; they've set the date;

Just opened The Roxxy live music venue in Salem with some friends! Great music, light show, food and drink. Come visit us at 220 State St in Salem or check out our site on Facebook: The Roxxy Northwest! Hope to see you there! Wick

Steve and I would like to also thank Bill and his committee for all the hard work that went into preparing for our fabulous reunion. Even though we were only able to attend one evening (Saturday), we absolutely loved every minute of it. We did have a great class and it was wonderful to re-connect.

Already looking forward to the 55th!

I want to thank those responsible for organizing the reunion. I love reunions, and have attended a good many of them over the years However, this one had special meaning to me. You were not only the first graduating class of my career as principal, but you were a special group of "kids" with a lot of combined talent. I appreciate the fact that so many of you came to talk with me Friday night. I came to the event with the expectation of staying just an hour or so. (My health is not all that great.) and ended up staying from 6:00 to 9:00. It was so great that I didn't even feel tired when I got home. That much effort normally leaves me gasping for air these days. This even just left me gasping about how great it was. Thank you all.


The very small handful of our classmates who put their hearts and minds into organizing the reunion have joined the ranks of my personal heroes...because their efforts allowed me to experience again--face to face and hug to hug--the rich relationships I had from 1958-61 at Sunset. I can't thank you enough for this gift that you have bestowed on each of us.

My feeling has always been that it was a "privilege of destiny" to have belonged to this group of humans...and I have always felt blessed to have been given the success I was given.

Thanks to Skip for letting us know about Candy, I have tried for years to track her down for OSU and sorority reunions with never any luck. It was nice to read that she had a successful career. She was my roommate at OSU our freshman year-and afterwards I lost track of her. I so wish I could have contacted her via our reunion website prior to her passing. Makes you realize how precious friendships are....and so worth caring for them. Connie
