John Wilson receives deceased brother Ricky (WO'73)Class ring back after being stolen 20 years ago!

August 2015 There was a "found" WOHS '73 class ring dated 2007 on alumniclass.com/westottawa/lostrings
---------------------------------------
"I found a 1973 West Ottawa class ring with the initials R W on it. There is also an inscription on the inside (first, last, and middle initial). Will gladly return to owner who can identify middle initial and has I.D. to prove identity. Posted October 15, 2007"
----------------------------------------
Barb Jacobs Cajka (WO'73) sent an email thru the website a few weeks after their 60th Birthday Bash in July 2016. After many weeks and emails exchanged, it was narrowed to Ricky Wilson, deceased. Barb WO'73 was able to get in touch with Ricky's brother John. After they exchanged many emails and months had passed, John Wilson and Paul from Zeeland were able to meet up. Paul was a little worried when John showed up to claim his brother's ring when he found out that John was an Allegan Co Deputy (retired). Turns out the man's father had also found and returned rings as a hobby in the 70's but charged a "fee" and the dad was almost arrested for trying to sell "stolen" property - he was assured that he was not being arrested! According to John's story, Ricky's class ring was stolen 20 years ago. Paul found it in a lake but will not disclose the location of the lake. Ricky D Wilson passed away at the age of 52 of a heart attack on July 9, 2007. (3 months before the ring was found!) John Wilson received Ricky's class ring which was given to Ricky's son Luke who in turn gave it to Ricky's grandson Caleb.
Happy ending for the Wilson family!

Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Pam Stolp Bogus


Tom & I have been married for 33 years and have 3 sons - love those lucky 3's. Scott lives in Lansing, Casey in Farmington Hills, and Nick just moved back to Holland. No grandkids yet, but Nick is moving in that direction. Tom still has his CAD services company, LakeFX, and that keeps him hopping. I am currently working at DeLong & Brower, PC in Holland as a CPA, which keeps me pretty busy too. Looking forward to seeing everyone at the reunion!
