Originally sent Sept. 14
I am sorry to report the passing of Lewis Van 'Butch' Horton, 71, living in Ft. Smith, AR. Butch died Sept. 11 and a private service "will be held later."
Butch was originally from Hartshorn, OK, attended LHS but not sure what year he graduated - be '54 or '55?
He married Pat Glandon - class '58 - they divorced years later. Butch owned & operated R & S Sporting Goods here in Lawton for many years. He is survived by two sons, Michael and Mark and their wives and daughter Janet and hubby Jim Crow. (photo below) Obit is in Lawton Constitution, 9/14.
I ran into '59 classmate Glen Harris at the local IHOP recently. Glen was doing fine. Glen doesn't have email but said his sister Geneva McIntosh keeps him up to speed as does good friend Jerry Morgan.
OK...this is IT!!! Class '52, TONIGHT - Friday 14th, 6:00pm at Fire Mountain Restaurant. Pre-reunion get-together for class 1952.
TOMORROW - Saturday night 15th, classes '49-'50-'51-'52, 6:00pm social hour, 7:00 dinner. Museum of the Great Plains. My Bill is '52, so I'll be seeing some of you!!!!
Don't toss those old LHS yearbooks. Have people interested in acquiring if any you would like to part with any years of the 1940's & 1950's.
All for now and regards from the 'home town'........ Georgia
