65th Reunion letter from Dona Bertain

Click to send comments

My dad, Robert �Bob� aka Fibre McCombs just entered the hospital and is severely neutropenic. He�s been
given a few weeks at the most on this little blue ball we call Earth.

If you wish to reach out, he and my mom, Dodi, will read your messages while they prepare for this transition.

Please know that dad has MANY fond memories of being a Pirate and loved being part of the football team.
Those days fill him with pure joy, (of course he�s blocked out the actual studying portion of those days!??).
He has had a fulfilling, adventurous and successful life as a Pirate, Beaver and Duck. He has your camaraderie
to thank for that great foundation.

Go Pirates!

With Respect,

Shannon McCombs
Bob�s daughter 

We will all miss him.

8/31/2018 Just a thought. How about having our 80th birthday party in May on weekdays?
Could a lower room rate be negotiated? Airline flights and rent cars would be cheaper. More interesting, we could meet in assembly with the graduating seniors. Educational break for the kids that administrators would welcome, and fun for us. And publicity. The World and TV would love it!
What do you think?
8/20/ 2018 Dear Steve,
You are amazing! I think the website is every bit as good as the party itself. I have heard that there are several of our classmates that have viewed it daily since last weekend. I will be sending out a follow-up with the website on it again. What a great contribution you made to our class. I will always look at numbers differently after hearing you talk! Great getting to know you better was a very positive part of our party! Thank your wife for being so patient with all of us. We get into the chatty, what have you been doing mode and it must be hard for spouses. Think that is why my husband prefers to make these types of events fishing expeditions rather than coming with me. As ever,
Dona -- Dona Foote
Thanks Dona,
That really means a lot to me. Tell your husband I'll be looking forward to meeting him-- Steve Warr.
8/13/18 Even though I was not able to attend, Steve, I enjoyed looking through the "annals of time" -- Ann Felkner
8/13/18 Will this website be a place where people can write in with any future words, adventures,etc...? Kay Holman
8/13/18 This webpage is very special! -- Tom Jenkins

Nobody reminded me to get a group shot, so.... I think I got everyody -- even Waldo.

    My brother Barry and I attended Bart Eames' funeral in Mesa, Arizona.  Bart was one of the Coos River Rats
    (I think Kay coined that phrase).  Bart's father, Henry, was principal of Coos River School and my 6th grade
    math teacher.

    Today I was printing out the deceased list for a classmate and I noticed Ted Mahar's name on it, and wrote to Dona
    to let her know he was alive.  How wrong and shocked I was to hear he did indeed pass away October 19, 2016.  A very
    wonderful tribute to him is in the Oregonian.   I just put in TED MAHAR OBIT in my browser and up came the long story.
    He had a great life... I know his wife was followed by many with her garden contribution to the paper.  Dona had
    mentioned Pat Petford Higgins and hubby had gone to his estate sale, but it flew right over my head, thinking estate
    sales don't mean a death sometimes...  Some just have estate sale when they are downsizing, moving,etc..  Anyway,
    I was so wrong, but had no idea...  It seems like only yesterday Ted had emailed me his picture and we had conversation..

	Kay Holman

    I think he just went back to Mars?  When Ted first came to Marshfield, his story was that he had come from Mars.  The great
    story-teller he was,  almost convinced me it was the truth.

    Steve Warr


    Now the Voice of the Pirates are all  gone..  Dennis Celorie, Bob Werber and Ted.
    I never knew him well in school, and certainly never heard the Mars story. Funny.
    Well, the weekend is nearly here..............

	Kay Holman


	One and a half minutes?  I am 77.  Shouldn't I get 77 minutes, or at least 7.7 minutes?
	I have some concern that I have a mess to walk through -- if it is bad just jump on me.  I guess I could do pony express.
