Another classmate has left our community of KHS friends.
Thank you to Bob O'Neill for alerting me to the passing on September 28th, 2019 of our classmate John Harris. While I did not know John at KHS, and he did not participate in our reunion activities over the years, Bob and he, and others, were friends during and after KHS. John, Bob and Art Stout all shared the wonderful train hobby that Bob still follows passionately to this day. After graduation Mr. Stout took Bob and John on a trip to see a particular special train exhibit. John held an electrical engineering degree and worked for an insurance company, at least part of the time inspecting mining operations in the US Southwest. He had a van and two motorcycles which he used to travel the country, using the cycles to access hard to navigate places he needed to inspect. John died of cancer peacefully in his sleep in the hospital, having also suffered COPD for some time. He lived at 1209 Lockett Road when we graduated, perhaps some of you remember him. He was living in Kirkwood when he died. He earned a Gold K, so obviously he was a good student!! May he rest in peace.
