Roger, I saw your comment on Tom DeCerbo’s page and just had to reach out to say “hi’ and see how you are doing. In reading your profile, I noticed you worked at Sikorsky. After Butler Business School, my first job was at Sikorsky and then I left a few times to have children and finally went back in 1982 and stayed there until I retired in 2012. I worked in several different departments and finally ended my career in the Executive Suite and supported the last three presidents. It was a good place to work and I have a lot of good memories. We are planning a 60th reunion in 2021 and would love to see you there - we could catch up on our days on Woodbridge Circle - those were the days.????
I agree with all the fine comments made in the passing of our classmate Edward, He was certainly somethig quietly special....destined for a future able to deal with situations requirung sensitivity and the ability to be a good listener. I remember him most for these qualities. Does anyone know if he came to Central with the Trumbull group? I believe he did not,..was one of the Bridgeport regulars. I took me a moment to remember him....but when I did got a very good, clear memory of a very sharp, quiet person. Will miss him along with the others that have gone before.
Roger, wishing you a very Happy Birthday. Wish you had attended our 75th event in October. It would have been so good to see you again!
The "Purv" is Back...all is right with the world!

Carl, I thought I knew most things about the computer, but your hint about holding down the control key to zoom in on a photo whorks like a charm!!!!
Thanks, Roger "Rod" Hinckley
I believe Barry may have died in Kentucky, August 12, 1983 and if so, is buried in Jenny Ridge Cemetery, Golden Pond, Trigg County Kentucky. His cemetery information shows born September 1, 1943. Name on stone: Barry W. Drew.
Not sure of his actual birth date and where he was born. To be sure, we would need this further information to confirm.

I remember him as very out-going, nice guy.

Although I didn't know him well on a personal level, it was obvious to me in my contacts with him, that Ron seemed to have a deeper understanding of life and a different outlook than many of our other peers in the class. It wasn't overly obvious at the time, but you kind of knew that he had a sensitivity and respect for others that was almost spiritual in nature. Well as it turns out, these early qualities served him well in his service to others in need. He hit the high point in serving his religion and humanity, something which all of us respect and honor him for. I agree with the Reverend Donald Parker's comments- who incidentally married me and my wife in 1976.
