Sculptor and City Museum founder and leader Bob Cassilly was found dead in a bulldozer today at the site of his new "Cementland" in North St. Louis. The 'dozer had rolled down a hill sideways and he was not wearing a seatbelt; it's being called an accident on the TV news. Bob was a well-loved St. Louis figure of our generation. Born in 1949, he grew up in Kirkwood and graduated in 1968 from Vianney. Watch the St. Louis Post, Facebook, and The Beacon newspaper for more news. I'm sure he'll be featured in Riverfront Times and Webster-Kirkwood Times also. There is a Facebook page to remember him, it is here. If you're interested watch tonight's news around our area, and the Internet. His sculpture is also found in Dallas, Brooklyn, NY, Virginia and San Diego to name some other places. Here we see the turtles along highway 40 as we head eastward and of course the City Museum is his main site. Cementland has been under construction for 10 years up on Riverview Blvd. Bob was trained as a sculptor, and graduated from Fontbonne. St. Louis will be less without him.

"Sharon Purdy stopped in Phoenix overnight with her husband Sam on the way to visit their son in Hawaii. Francey took Sharon, Sam, Cindy and I on a fabulous tour of the Phoenix Art Museum where she is a docent. Then on to dinner at a famous local Mexican joint. Great time and fun visit! I've attached a photo of the three amigos that always sat in a row one behind the other in classes seated alphabetically."
Notice 46 years later they are STILL in alphabetical order, old habits.......

In going through Paul's scrapbooks in his study tonight, I found a few pix of the Friday evening hotel hospitality room set-up the night before our Silver Anniversary Reunion party. Not only is Paul gone, but so are two of the folks in the pictures. Check them out at the website, khs65.com they are in the 2011 album. Chuck Cross was such a great supporter of KHS65, and loved working on the reunions so much. His life was way too short, a great loss to those who were privileged to know him. One of these days I'll look to see what other photos I have of that reunion, I know I have some.
I decided to post this one here. Paul was notorious for taking pix of female rear ends, here he caught Joanne Cross helping stock the eats at the bar in the hotel hospitality suite. I can't believe I am knowingly posting a photo of me with curlers and a scarf! It looks like I just took a swig of that Coke or ate a cracker, dumb look on my face and dumb picture, but it brought a smile to my face all these years later. Can we believe it is nearly another 25 years since that magic night in 1990???
