I received this info on yet another passing.....Al Terry Joern passed last Sunday, July 5, in Montreal, Canada where he had lived for many years. He was a track star at LHS, graduating in 1964. (later correction: graduated in '62).He gave up his medical practice some years ago due to health problems. He is survived by his wife, two daughters and a son, and his parents, Al and Dimple Joern. Per his request, there was no funeral service.
Visited with Bill Stamps and Sharon a few days ago. Bills mom - Gents - fell and broke her hip. She is doing 'ok' but rehab may be a long process. Bless her, she just turned 90. btw...she is also mom to Sue. So hope all goes well.
