Comments:

I left PAHS in June '60 when my father transfered to Ft. Benning, Georgia.

I graduated from Jordan High School in Columbus, Georgia in '62.

I graduated from the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, Arkansas in '66.

I married my college sweetheart in 1975.

I worked in the apparel manufacturing business for over 40-years.

Both my mother & father are burried at Arlington National.

I'm retired now and just "kicking back" and enjoying life to it's fullest. Jamie and I still love to travel; enjoy flying, sailing, and playing golf.

God bless the PAHS class of '62. I have such wonderful memories of this time in my live and feel so fortunate to have spent these years in such a wonderful and exciting setting as Paris.

School Story:

What a magic period in my life that I will never forget and times that will always be cherished.

We lived in Fontainbleau and I rode the weekly bus ride into Paris every week to live in the dorm.

I played center on the PAHS football team and was a starter my Freshman year when the regular center and upperclassman broke his leg (can't remember his name). I remember and looked up to guys like John Davenport, John Foxworth, and Pete Hildago.

I also remember how proud I was to wear my Red & Black letter jacket with the big Red "P" on the breast and Paris accross the back. I can also remember wearing my Black Watch sport coat (with matching tie) which I thought was pretty cool at the time.

What great times these were and a period in my life that I will always remember.

Happy BD Erich! May this next year be one of the best ever for you. Still remember the football days we shared at PAHS. Was our coaches name Hillingberg or something like that - I can't remember?
