55 Year Reunion Youtube Slide Video

Hi Everyone:

The classreport website only allows for 4 slide shows. I really don't want to "disable" any of them and insert the video from our 55th reunion. Therefore to view the pictures, copy and paste the following URL to your browser. There are over 20 minutes of pictures that you won't want to miss. Janet Stair, wife of Dick Stair, created the video with input from our reunion committee who worked very hard on this project. We thank you...!

https://youtu.be/aG7Bzsf-rMo

Another way to access the video is to go directly to www.youtube.com. In the "Search" engine, enter: WASHINGTON HIGH SCHOOL CLASS OF 1962 55 YEAR CLASS REUNION, PHOENIX ARIZONA

Best Regards,
Marianne Usko Brown,
Class Administrator

Today's Featured Biography

 

 
John Brinnon


"Where were you, in '62" ?

I grew up in West Phoenix, arriving in Arizona in 1946. We lived on 29th Ave/Hazelwood near GRANADA School. Class of '58. My name then was John E. Garbutt. I reverted back to my birth name (Brinnon) after my parents divorced in 1959. One step Sister, Ann Maree(Earl)Thompson Washington High, Class of '65. ASU Alumni. She resided in her beloved Payson,AZ. and sadly passed away July 27,2016 at age 69.

I attended WEST HIGH School for two years, 1959-60,CENTRAL HIGH 1961, and graduated WASHINGTON HIGH 1962.
CANADA COLLEGE/Redwood City,CA 1973-75 Commercial Art

I spent many "Endless Summer's" in Avalon, Catalina Island,CA (1959-65), and Hermosa Beach, So Cal before finally giving up my beach bum existence for the Air Force in July of '65.
USAF: I was a Lockheed Starlifter C141A jet engine mechanic at Travis AFB, Fairfield,CA until discharge,12/18/68. Hired on at United Airlines SFO(eng/aircraft mechanic) January 13,1969. Retired from UAL December 17,2002.

Windsurfing was my passion for over 20 years, especially in Hawaii. Flying was fun then! My wife (Halina) and I now relax at beautiful S. Lake Tahoe, CA.,our favorite getaway. Life is good!

I have been happily married for 40 years (Halina, born in Hohenfels, Germany). One Son and one Daughter, and three grandkids, ages 19 to 23.

I have been a car guy all my life. Many fond memories of "cruising Central Ave" on warm Friday nights in Phoenix and listening to all the great music of our times. My DJ Father (Virg "Moondog" Brinnon) DJ'd with rock 'n roll legend ALAN FREED at WJW-Cleveland in 1954, and local high school concerts.

In the early '60's in Phoenix I owned a 31A Ford hot rod, orange 31A pickup,'34 sedan, and a true barn find '40 Ford Woody I found on Belmont Ave, just North of WHS. We lived on State and Hayward Ave., not far from Washington High.

I have to admit,back in '62, I spent more time cruising Central Ave and Bob's Big Boy, then I did attending any events at Washington High. That year went really fast. Just got to know some new classmates and all of a sudden it was time to graduate. Thank you, Mr. Ron Murphy, WHS,for my passing grade in U.S Government! (Whew!) I do recall we had a great football team that year. Attended our 20 year reunion in 1982 but unfortunately missed the 50 year reunion.

"Music is the Soundtrack of Your Life"
