28 OCT 2013: Murl Huffman Update - Doing Well!
---Gang, this is from Ann Huffman Warner, who is the daughter of MURL E. HUFFMAN. Please scroll down to read the text. MEH was present at a couple of our recent events of alumni weekend, but many of you were not. So you'll be able to stay current, if you read this, as regards his contact info. I'm still working on the next bulletin and hope to have it distributed over the next 2-3 weeks. Stay tuned and best regards to all!
Subject: A thank you from Murl Huffman
A thank you from Murl Huffman: I probably can't do justice to the message Dad wants me to share with his WC/Pirate community. But, he has asked me to try, since it seemed that my Facebook and email updates about his open heart surgery did reach many of his old friends and previous students. He wants me to share that he is thankful for all the love and support he received over the past months -- so many cards, calls, visits, rides for Marj and for him, and incredibly kind words shared with me. He doesn't communicate much by email or other electronic means, but he would love to personally thank anyone who wanted to call him now that he is feeling so much better - he just wants to personally say thanks for all the kindnesses he received. The phone numbers where you are most likely to catch him are: his cell - 937-830-6567 or their home # at Marj's - 937-435-1105.
--Ann (his daughter - also tremendously thankful for all the support the WC folks extended to Dad)

HOMECOMING 2013 and MURL HUFFMAN REPORT...
---It's always a joy to write special bulletins which are of a positive
nature, as is this one. For so long, it seemed as though the specials were
all about someone dying. Anyway, I've recently received WC news which is
terribly exciting ofr me. It just so happens I've learned this year's WC
Homecoming Grand Marshal is going to be 1987's SHARLENE N. MERKER. This
event will take place Oct. 12. As most all of you are aware, there's a
whole network of WC genes at work here. Sharlene is the daughter of 1960's
SHIRLEY J. TUDOR, the spouse of 1985's JEFFREY A. SIZER, the daughter-in-law
of 1959's GARY L. SIZER, the niece of the 3 late Tudor sisters, 1955's DONNA
G. & DORIS D., and 1957's DEANA C. Sharlene and Jeff are the parents of the
football team's ANDREW W. SIZER, Class of 2014, and of NICOLE LEE SIZER, and
I'm thinking she may be Class of 2016 or maybe 2017. She's the sister of WM.
J. MERKER, JR., and I think he was Class of 1981. Then if we branch out to
the Sizer side, we get into 1957's NEIL H. SIZER, as well as all the PARKS
clan, since Neil's wife is 1959's SHIRLEY R. PARKS. So you're getting my
drift here, right? This is practically like a log book---pun intended---of
WC Pirates, and Sharlene is our WC Homecoming Grand Marshal. We all offer
you heartiest congratulations, Sharlene. (By the way, for those of you who
may be unaware, it was me who officiated at Jeff and Sharlene's 1994 wedding
held in my front yard in Florida. I was a Notary Public there for 30 years
and NPs are empowered to marry people in that state. So I'm proud as I can
Here's yet another great tidbit. Their son, Drew, as he's addressed, has
been accepted into the Navy SEAL program and will go after his graduation.
Wow! That's a biggie.
Finally, get your reservations to the home of 1970's GARY E. JOHNSON, post
haste. It's right down to the wire, now. I believe Monday is the final day
The word on the street is that of our iconic civics teacher, MURL E.
HUFFMAN, being fit as a fiddle again, and ready and rearin' to attend the
functions of next weekend. So as Fonzie might say, "Be there or be square!"
Best to all. Bonnie
