Faces, the early Sixties in Murray, Iowa...........Week 30
Because it is my older brother's class, I kept an eye on all of them and watched them while I was growing up. My brother is in the top row and a first cousin of mine, Gerald Brown, is on the right of the second row. Of all my cousins, I feel he was the one who inherited the facial features of my Grandpa Leroy Brown.
Last names names of of few would be Brown, Edwards, Files, Creese, Bustad, Dinham, Bettis, Crittenden, Mathis, Gonseth, Dugger, Jones, Hughs, and Mills.
First names at the time were like Ray, Tim, Merril, Gerald, Barbara, Arlene, Tom, Karen, Linda, Nancy, and Carolee.
Of the history of these members of the class of 1960, I don't know now so much about them. I know of three of them that are not alive. One of them is still a close friend to my brother, Ray Files, and the one on the bottom right corner lives in a town near here.
Did you notice the influence of Elvis Presley on this class or maybe James Dean? The three sponsors are all gone now, as the one on the far top left was Mr. Kirby, who actually returned and retired in Murray, Iowa.
A bonus set of pictures are the one here of my brother Rex Thomas Burgus, 1942- , and this could be a photo of him in '58 or '59. He was a sports buff all four years in high school and you can tell that from his tan. Below was his high school sweetheart. Janet Dugger.
My brother Ron married the year out of his 3 year stint in the service to Julieann Liggitt and they have three grown children today with two grandchildren. He still owns a printing business in Mesa and his one son helps to run it.
