Comments:

Actually retired 6 years ago - then bought another practice and hired an orthodontist to do the work, didn't work out well, so now taking over, working just 1 or 2 days a week, still enjoying patient contact.
But so much more in digital entry, technology etc.

School Story:

Peter Jackson and I challenging each other in our old Ford cars; we decided to cross Putah Creek, spin around, then come back across and back up the levee. His '48 V8 did nicely, great spinning around - my derelict '49 flathead 6 made it across, good spins, but clutch gave out on the way back at the deepest part of the creek!
That is NOT" the rest of the story!" Peter and I jobbed ethyl alcohol from organic chem lab, and managed to consume it just before a dinner time. I was usually pretty quiet ( except for piano playing)...came bursting in late and explaining to King John Hardie (bless his memory) that 'everything was under control'!!! It wasn't.

How about 'Lunch with Jere'? It is clear that demise is NOT in your immediate future, so why wait?! Oh, right, no open restaurants!

Shocked and saddened.  Knew Michael mostly by his presence at our 'Lunches w Charlie', a big friendly Theta Xi brother  with strong investment advices!

See you at the next Lunch with Charlie? You have 2 months on me, Happy Birthday old man!

Too early demise for such a sweet quiet guy.  I didnt have much connection with Jerry, more ridiculous immature loudness with Peter Jackson.  God rest both their souls!

Peter and I were close in more ways that 95-96. Not memories of academic accomplishments, sports prowess, or musical pleasures...no.   Memories of goofy, ridiculous stunts;  as in racing our old Ford cars BACKWARD on the suburban Sacramento streets...fording Putah creek and getting stuck in the middle  (Mine with the slipping clutch, not his)...jobbing Ethyl alcohol from organic lab and coming to lunch wasted (Hardt was president at the time!)...lighting farts and pajama fuzz (and Ron Loars chest hair!)...Going to his parents' home when I was sick and being treated to Royal (his mother) s special curative, milk, whisky, honey and pepper (exceptionally sickening!), and the dumbest of all, our behaviour on double dates!

       I am really bummed by this event.  Anybody have a way to contact his younger brother Mike???
