Does anyone know if the obituary a few days ago for Milton Johnson Jr. Was the Milton Johnson who graduated in 1970?

I was wondering the same.  I know he lived in Springfield, il.  He and his wife golfed with us in the reunion golf e ent.  His son, who was an administrator at Alton high, lived in town a few years back.  I think he may of had some medical issues.

I've sent a message to Cathy Williams Funeral home to try to get a copy of Milton's obit. If they respond I'll post it for all to see. What kind of funeral home doesn't have a web site these days??? If anyone local can stop by there and pick up a copy, send it to me and I'll post it. Take are all.

I still have a copy of our Commencement Booklet which has a class roll of 732 students listed in it.  It is dated Tuesday Evening, June 2, 1970.  A newspaper article which came out the following day (Wednesday, June 3, 1970) states that 706 of us actually attended the graduation ceremony and received our diplomas that night.  It is safe to say that not everyone who originally started out in our class actually graduated.

I thought there were 792 of us!  Guess John and I both skipped math class that year!

Was Greg Tanler (spelling may be incorrect) in our graduating class or did he move to our area later?  Does anyone know where he is now?

Thanks.

Boy looks like there is no clear number, I thought I remember 738 that night. I was like what I thought was 735.
