With sorrow, I report the death of classmate Richard E. Dake, who passed away on February 23rd from a heart attack and resulting complications. Dick was a faithful attendee at our class reunions. Although I didn't know Dick very well when we were at Amherst, in conversations with him at gatherings of classmates I found him to be a delightful person, who was devoted to the College and our Class. I know you join me in sending our deep condolences to Dick's wife, Ann, and to his family. Ann's address is 71 Ansel Rowland Rd, Centerville, MA 02632.
Many of you knew Bill Schlangen's wife, Marilyn, who died on February 9th after a long illness. Marilyn was one of my very favorite persons in our extended Class family. She was a lovely and charming lady, who was a wonderful wife to Bill and mother to their son, Charlie. She always accompanied Bill to our Class reunions, most recently our 50th, where I'm sure many of you enjoyed being with her. To Bill and Charlie, our class sends its most sincere sympathy. Bill's address is 1000 Buckeye Rd, PO Box 189, Kenwood, CA 95452.
My best regards,
