Who is this guy? He was in our class in '84.
Anyone? ... According to Captain James T. Quirk, "If I can remember
right, he was only around for 1 year and had really long straight blonde
hair. Kind of a tough guy. May have threatened you a few
times and you were too traumatized to remember." ... Jason Miller
thinks Kenny Butzer lived in the Bedard house near Eric Delewski on Haag
Road. "If this is the same dude, both my sisters had huge
'crushes' on him. My dad wouldn't allow him around since he
wore makeup and parachute pants."

Marine in the family. Nathanael is the sneaky one, and was
recently found running down the street in his pajamas chasing the
dog. The Monroes now plan to lock their doors! ... His family use to

Mike was the shortstop of the Antietam
Traveling team back in 7th grade. Here's an amazing fact: I tied
Mike for team lead in home runs with 4 (all over the fence) - hard to
believe, I'm sure, but I actually knew how to swing a bat early in my
life! ... Mike used to have a shirt that said "On a scale of 1 to
10, I’m an 11." ... Like Bob Pettit, I think Mike also left Mt.
Penn to play football at Central Catholic.

who cleared up the rumors of him being struck by a car not long
after graduation: "I was struck by an auto after leaving
Stopper's Pub in 1988. Allegedly, we had parked on the opposite side
of 422 and I made it halfway to the car. I don't really remember
anything about the accident, so I pieced this together through
medical and legal documents.
I sustained 4
craniofacial fractures, my jaw was wired shut for 7 weeks; a closed
head injury; tore 3 ligaments in both knees; and avulsed have my
left hamstrings. I spent several days in ICU then ~3 more weeks in
the hospital Jim Cinneli's dad sewed me back together. Then my
hospital room was moved to my family's living room and my
grandmother moved in to take care of me. I had a cast on both legs
for six weeks. It took about 6 months until I could walk without
assistance. I can't complain though, I'm alive. And in a strange
way, the night I got hit was the best day
my life. I am a better person for it. Next time you are driving down
422 check your speedometer when you go by Stopper's, if it is still
there. The cement dividers were not there when I was. A good
friend's father was killed in a car accident about 100 yards down
from Stopper's, the dividers went up after that."
from Dave: "I graduated from Albright with a BA in psychology.
From there I went to Washington D.C to attend American University. I
received an MA in psychology there. I also met Laura who eventually
would lower her standards and marry me. An aside: I've learned if I
set my goals lower I can attain more of them, it's good for the self
confidence. After American U, I lived in D.C. for another 4 years
and I worked with the chronically mentally ill. I look at the 4
years as my pay back to society. From D.C. we moved to San Antonio
so Laura could do her internship at the V.A. hospital. Once we moved
I enrolled in college again to take biology, chemistry, physics etc,
all the hard stuff I skipped in my prior life, so I could apply to
PT school. I graduated with a master's degree in PT in 2001, that
amounts to 11 years of college after high school. At that time I
back to the east coast, I really missed the change of seasons, but I
did not enjoy the winters above the Mason-Dixon line. So we just
kind of picked a place on the map, packed all our stuff in a U-haul
and headed east."
* Per Marta Weitz: "His brother Bill went to West Chester U. at the
same time as I did. My sophomore year I dated a guy who lived in
the apartment next to mine. One day I went over to see John, and
there was Bill (Strickler.) It turns out he was the new roommate -
how weird! A few times when I went home to see my parents I gave
Bill a ride back to West Chester. (Mrs. Strickler would drop him
off at my house - that was weird!) Bill is a really nice
guy. I realized that once he became my neighbor and got to know
him. He's now a Reading cop, and has been for quite a while."

husband works with Bill as a police officer in Reading.
