I'm retired from Allisons.
My wife's name is Brenda, and she's from Corydon, Ind. We meet while she was attending IU Medical at Indianapolis and married in 1986. She has two sons, Chris (31) and Wayne (35). They both live in southern Indiana.
My first wife was Sharon Alsman from the class of '66. We were married from 1967 to 1985 and had two kids, David (36) and Heather (30). I have 4 grandkids: Nik (15) plays football & hockey at Center Grove High School, Jacob (13) , Wes (2 1/2), and Shawn (1).
After high school I joined the Navy and worked as a shipfitter.
When I got out of the Navy I started a plumbing business with Dave Benjamin (class of '66). Spent most of the 70's doing plumbing and excavating. We closed up shop and sold our equipment in 1979, when I started working at Allison's as a pipefitter.
I took medical retirement in Nov. 2001 after being diagnosed with Mantel cell lymphoma cancer. I had two treatments. The second was a stem cell transplant, and now I'm doing great and in complete remission.
I've been fishing for tarpon in the Florida Keys (caught a 160 lb. tarpon!), and I've been to Manitoba, Canada 3 times (44" pike!) after my cancer treatments.
I was a member of the Bridgeport Volunteer Fire Dept. for over 15 years.(I'm also a past EMT) in the 70's & 80's
I flew hang gliders in the 70's & 80's all over the US. Flew the mountains, towed behind boats and flew an ultralite powered glider. I hunt, fish, boat, ski and travel over most of the US and I do some international travel too.
Brenda and I enjoy the grandkids, traveling and our home deep in the Morgan County woods on a small lake. We plan on going to the 40 year class reunion if the Good Lord's willing and the creek don't rise.
It is good to read about everyone.

Laughter, Tim (2000)
Tim died on July 15, 1996.
An internet search netted this, from actor Chris Noke:
"My first paying gig was at the Brown County Playhouse. I was cast in I'm Not Rapaport directed by this guy named Tim Laughter (Pronounced "Lawter"). Tim was frustrated with my "subtle" performance of Gilley, the kid who mugs the two old guys. He expressed this frustration in earlier rehearsals, but he finally directed me to "do it this way" and proceeded to perform the role. When he finished, he said with emphasis, "Do it like that!" I did, but I was furious and humiliated.
However, I have to look back and recall what Tim taught me about myself. I like to work with people who inspire me and whom I inspire.
The above is my "worst day" of acting. My best? Same day. Thanks Tim. Rest in peace."
And this came to my mailbox unsolicited:
Tim was a very fine actor and a gentleman and I am sorry to just now learn that he passed away.
I met Tim at Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis in early 1978. We were both auditioning for the role of Hamlet at the very fine CTS theatre, and I remember looking at him perform and thinking, wow, this guy is really passionate, just very good, and perhaps I should read for some different part. But I soon learned there was something even more impressive about Tim. You see, I got the part. I played the Hamlet that maybe he should have played.
But he was completely supportive of me during the show and afterward. He really had something to teach about conducting one's self with grace when others are placed before you.
I've thought about this many times since then, and will always remember this man's kindness. Please pass this on to his family and friends if possible.

I got married in Sept '65 to Linda Rayles (Brownsburg '65); best thing I ever did!
Uncle Sam wanted me in '66 and gave me that all-expenses-paid trip to Southeast Asia. When I got back in '68 we had our first child, Thomas, who is a contractor and owner of his own home improvements company: "Law Enterprises."
Our second child Rhonda showed up in '70. She's married and living in Westville. I quit drinking the water after that! Rhonda has given us a granddaughter who owns her grandpa whenever she wants something. Her name is Kayla and she is six.
I had a round with cancer in '80, but I beat it. Thanks, cigarettes!

I graduated from IU after the Army. After working for General Motors, I began Insurance Adjusting and eventually moved back to Alaska where I had been stationed during the Army. I lived in Fairbanks, Anchorage, and Wasilla for almost 20 years--but traveled extensively throughout most of Alaska. It was awesome!
I'm married with four kids--none at home. Two are in California, one is living in Colorado, and my youngest, Ryan, is a Marine fluent in Serbo-Croatian is now headed for Camp Lejune, NC. We have 3 granddaughters and one grandson.
I returned to Indiana briefly after leaving Alaska in 1993, then lived most of 10 years in Hot Springs South Dakota (while briefly living in South Carolina, Nebraska, Iowa, and Oregon for employment). I have been working at Fort McCoy, WI for the past 2-1/2 years under contract; I just accepted a permanent position here and like it very much. I'm involved in a great church in Onalaska, WI but still maintain http://SHEFchurch.org for my church back in South Dakota.

Got this note from his daughter: "My dad graduated in 1965 I don't believe that he is in the yearbook. That might be the reason for some of the confusion in not being able to identify him . My dad never had pictures taken that would be in the yearbook. His name is Billie G Long he is known as Bill Long to friends and family... He told me most of his Education focused in Industrial Arts area . We played in a band with his brother and 2 others they were called " The Coast In Longs" He played alot of weekends at the Firehouse dances on west side at firehouse off of Raymond street ( I think that is the street). It was so neat to see the pic of the yearbook and class ring on the website I have seen the 1965 yearbook many a time with my mom's year books and that class ring looks mighty familiar as well!!! My Mom and Dad also still have the senior cords too!! It was neat to see the senior cords on the website !!! That is one tradition I wish could have stuck They are so cool !!!

I dated Gary Lowry a few times the summer between my Junior & Senior Year at BDHS...we got together at the Wed nite Westlake dances...He always loved the Supreme's song "Baby Love".... we would all do the old "Circle Dances" back then and when they played that particular song he would always find me and we would dance to it!!! He drove his mother's cool black Pontiac on our dates and was a real fun guy. He was a neighbor and friend of my best friend at BDHS - "Susie German McKay" who kind of played match maker... He was a real nice guy, fun, laughed a lot and was a great B-Ball player. I saw him at our 30th HS reunion when I came back home to Indy...was glad to see him again and am so sorry to hear of his untimely passing. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.
