Gordon Langenbeck has been diligently tracking down lost classmates.
Please check out our Truant Page and see if you might know where any of these lost folks reside or how to contact them.
Here are Gordon's comments regarding his search:
Talked to Dennis Allen in Lewiston, ID where he is semi-retired from the rug cleaning business. 
Got Bob Mayo's address from him. Bob is now living in Missouri City, TX and is retired from HR for Shell Oil. 
Also located Ken Berryhill deep in the heart of Texas. 
In trying to locate George Barber, discovered he was shot to death in Feb. 2002 by his next door neighbor in Fresno as a result of a long standing feud. The guy was tried twice and walked. Verified that it was our George Barber as I talked to Delmer Hutchison who also lives in Fresno and has recently retired from thirty years of teaching industrial arts at McLane High School in Fresno. Said he saw George a couple weeks before the shooting. 
Also talked to Trini Amador who is living at an undisclosed location in Northern CA and says he has his life back on track.
