RHS Class of 1967

Sunday - October 2, 2022
Noon to 6 p.m.

Yorba Regional Park
7600 E. La Palma Avenue
Anaheim 92807

In an effort to be as COVID-safe as possible, we've scheduled an informal reunion picnic at a lovely park that offers plenty of open space for social distancing.

We'll cater lunch using the services of an Orange County-approved vendor - perhaps a barbeque company that will do the cooking onsite, provide all of the paper goods & supplies, and take care of the clean-up.

The cost-per-person will include all expenses associated with our reunion event - including park rental fees, the cost of lunch, advertising, postage, and other expenses associated with the event. Know that we'll do our best to keep this event affordable for everyone.

In addition to whatever the price-per-person will be, there will be a parking fee ($5-$7) collected by Orange County Parks & Recreation as you enter Yorba Regional Park.

Save the Date - and look for an update regarding our 55-Year Reunion Picnic SOON!!

GARY MOTT and his wife, Jean, have settled into their new home in Blanchard, Oklahoma. You may remember that Gary was unable to attend the reunion last summer because torrential rainstorms and bad weather in the Midwest impacted construction work on his homesite. Gary, who really enjoys golf, had been looking forward to vacationing from his Air Force duties in Oklahoma and playing in the Sunrise Golf Tournament with us. You may contact Gary at his new email address:


GEORGIA (FRENCH) NELSON and husband, David, are living in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Georgia, a senior executive with Southern California Edison/Edison International for many years, retired after a successful and distinguished business career. Georgia is not really "retired" however... She still works several days a month on behalf of various interests and involvements. Georgia can be reached at


While vacationing in Cherokee County, Kansas, I got to spend a day with JACKIE (ZIEGLER) STROBL, who lives in Webb City, Missouri. Jackie, formerly a loan officer in the automotive industry, now manages her real estate holdings and owns an online antiques & collectibles business. Her son, daughter & son-in-law, and her two cute-as-can-be grandchildren, live nearby. Zipping around town in Jackie's BRIGHT ORANGE VOLKSWAGON, we attended a farm auction and visited Jackie's booths in a local antique store. You can send a note to Jackie at

UPDATE - JUNE 18, 2008

Aloha Dear Friends & Classmates,

Funeral Services were held for RHS '67 Classmate & Friend Baldwin "Bud" Nainoa Kalama, Jr., on Tuesday, June 17, 2008, at the LDS Chapel in Yucca Valley.  Bud suffered a fatal heart attack on June 10, 2008.

Our floral tribute, a beautiful, oversized, triple-orchid lei, created for us by Cindy's Leis in Honolulu, was draped on the altar behind the casket throughout the service. On the front of the card, attached to the burgundy-maroon lei ribbon, was a hand-drawn RHS home game football jersey, with "33." On the reverse was Bud's senior high school photo surrounded by a lei. The text, "Aloha Nui Loa Dear Friend & Classmate - RHS Class of 1967," was beneath the photo.

Following the family viewing (8:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.), in which I took part, the casket was closed and Pallbearers Ron Kalama (Bud's brother), sons Nainoa Kalama, Ilima Kalama & Lukela Kalama, and family members Tyler Rivas, Kevin Cook, Jeff & Nainoa Nicholsen led the procession into the chapel. The family casket piece was a magnificent arrangement of white anthurium, white Hawaiian naupaka, white Hawaiian protea, white double carnations, long-stem white roses, and white ti leaf.

Bud's younger sister, Keahi Scholer, served as chorister. Cousin Wayne Kalama offered the opening prayer. Bud's daughter, Lani Nicholsen, was the first of the four Kalama children to eulogize their father. With remarkable poise, Lani, Nainoa, Ilima, and Lukela each shared thoughts and insight regarding their father. Bud's brother, sons and nephews harmonized in beautiful, memorable acapalla voice to sing "Going Home." Bud's brother, Ron, and fellow San Bernardino Sheriff Officer/LDS Bishop Jeff Prudholm were the speakers. Bud's sister, Kathleen Kelsey, finalized the service in prayer. The recession music was "Aloha Oe'."

It was during the recession that I noticed that every pew in the chapel was completely filled, the sliding curtain at the back of the chapel had been opened, the entire basketball court, stage area, and foyer was completely filled with mourners. It was "standing room only" throughout the entire complex. There were well over 350 people in the building.

Following the service, our lei tribute was draped over the family piece, where it remained throughout the burial service and internment.

At Montecito Memorial Cemetery in Colton, Gary Alba and I watched as the gravesite was dedicated by Bishop Carl Fonoimoana. The San Bernardino Sheriff's Color Guard, including a bagpiper, were a part of the gravesite service. As mourners gathered together under trees to await the arrival of the hearse, a windchime tinkled in the soft breeze.

It was a very warm day and the final service was brief. As the casket was lowered, Bud's widow, Carol, led the group with her floral aloha. Family members and other attendees followed. In addition to a collection of shell leis and Hawaiian salt from the Kaululaau 'Ohana, I left a kukui nut and mock orange lei from the RHS Class of 1966 on behalf of Mark Bell and his RHS '66 Classmates.

Led by Cousin Valerie Kalama, some family members gathered to sing "To You Sweetheart, Aloha." We stood together around the gravesite and sang "Aloha 'Oe" in Hawaiian and English to conclude the service.

Although I needed to head for home, the day concluded with a repast held at a hall in Menifee.

I pray that each of you will remain strong, well, and in God's hands.

-- Becky
