After reviewing the "In Memory" section of our web site, I was taken a back

by the number of classmates that have passed. In paqrticular Dave Renn really threw me for a loop.

Dave was an outstanding basketball player and earned all-state honors in his senior year. There were

others that shocked me too, Jack Alvis, Kenny Guest. and Buddy Eckhardt. It's to late to tell them

how much we appreciated their dedication and humor, but it's not to late for the rest of us


Life is "Infinite" it will end. The only thing that matters is how we go out...on our knees or standing up.

I choose to stand up and live life to it's fullest.

Boy were we lucky that Dave transferred to BTHS.  Such talent on the basketball court and an all around nice guy.  I talked to Dean Renn (his brother, our driver's ed teacher and assistant football coach) and he told me that Dave retired in May of 2011 and was looking forward to just chillin'.  He became terminally ill that summer and passed in the fall of 2011.  How sad.  I'm sure he would have enjoyed visiting with his former teammates.  He IS remembered.

David and I had history together our junior year.  I remember sitting across the isle from him and I am sure we spent more time chatting than actually listening in class.  I believe the teacher's name was Charles Roome, and he may have only taught at BTHS that one year.  As I am looking at our 1963 yearbook, I see that David wrote he really missed me our senior year and that the previous year he had had only one class to look forward to!

Years later while I was visiting my Mom in Belleville and we were eating at Fisher's Restaurant, a voice behind me suddenly said, "hi  Sandy".  I turned and it was David.  He said he recognized my voice and sure enough it was me.  I really don't remember where he was living at the time, but it was fun to see him again. 

I was very sad to hear he had died and certainly have good memories of him.
