“I, along with Barbara Erickson Thompson, have become the unofficial keepers of updates on classmates from the Lake View - Auburn Class of 1966. On behalf of the class we extend our condolences to Steve's family. We are sorry to hear of his passing. The Class of 66 had 44 members. With Steve's passing, 7 have passed away plus 2 who did not graduate with us but were considered classmates. With each passing we think of the good times we had with those classmates through the years attending LVA, from elementary through high school. Steve will be missed by the class members.

Mark Hanson”
