Gary David Anderson
6/27/2017
BHS 1968

Gary David Anderson departed this Earth in the early hours of June 27, 2017.  Given the name “gentle giant” by family and friends, he was indeed a big, strong man blessed with the kindest heart.  A loyal friend and amazing father, he stayed true to his sweetheart, Rebecca, for 42 years.  A Civil Engineer by trade, he worked 40 plus years in the hop industry, and he loved what he did.  In his spare time, he built rat rods, assembled functioning art pieces from metal and wood, and could hold a conversation comprised solely of movie quotes.    Gary was proceeded in death by his parents, Dave and Hannah Anderson of Bellingham, his tonsils, and many beloved pets.  He is survived by his brothers, Cory and Darrel, sister Lisa, his wife Rebecca and daughter Roz.
The family would like to thank the kind, hardworking caregivers of Heartlinks Hospice for their support and care in his final weeks. 
If you would like to honor his memory, please visit http://gofundme.com/gary-beki-roz-memorial in lieu of flowers or gifts.  A private memorial for close friends and family will be held at a later date.   Those wishing to sign Gary’s online memorial book may so at www.funeralhomesmith.com.

No Ray's Summer Party 2017 :(

Ray will not be having his Summer Party this year. We'll miss this great event. All the more reason to attend this year's BHS Annual Potluck on August 26, 2017!

See below for details. Watch your email for an EVite (if you don't get an eVite, contact admin@bhs1968.org) and make sure to RSVP. Info also on our Facebook page.

BHS 1968 50-Year Reunion in 2018 update

Our planning meeting on Saturday, Nov. 19th, 2016 at Barkley Bob's went really well! We had 16 people there and that was without 5 or 6 of our regulars. We made a number of decisions, including the Date, and were able to assign volunteers to areas of responsibility.
The 50 Year Reunion will be August 11, 2018. We are currently in negotiations with Bellingham Golf & Country Club for use of their facilities.

**If you haven't taken the latest 2018 Reunion Survey yet, please do. We need your input so we can estimate attendance and plan for it.

Official Notice:
BHS 1968 49-Year Reunion Potluck Party, August 26, 2017!

August 26th, 2017, 3:00pm (Happy Hour at 2 pm) at the Larson Family homestead, 3188 Unick Road (click for map) in Ferndale (same as last year).

You can go to View eVite anytime and see who has RSVP'd and if they are coming. Go to the menu on the left side and select "Activity" for comments and "Guests" for guest list and status.

Potluck and BYOB. As we did last year, Karyn Bring Daniels will pick up mass amounts of Chicken from Safeway Deli for all, the cost of which will be covered by our BHS Reunion fund.
There will be a small cover charge of $5.00 per person to various cover costs.
Happy Hour will start at 2:00pm, Group pictures at 4:00pm. Dinner around 5pm.
We will be looking at photos and videos from past reunions and also Grade School and Jr. High photos (bring more if you have them).
Sehome '68 Grads are Welcome to attend. Feel free to invite your friends from Sehome. We do ask any Sehome '68 Grads planning to attend to let us know for organizing purposes. (contact admin@bhs1968.org and provide names and contact info/email and we’ll send them an eVite).

Any questions go to www.bhs1968.org or contact admin@bhs1968.org

Some reminders:

  • This is a Potluck and BYOB so bring something to share.
  • Chairs: try to bring a chair or two if you can. We’ll have some chairs there, but not enough so if most of you bring one that will help a lot.
  • Tables: Again, we have some tables but can use more, so if you can bring a fold-up table that helps too.
  • Canopies: We had 4 or more portable canopies last year, and boy did it help. It was really hot and allowed people to sit in the shade. So if you have one, please try to bring it.
  • Main Entrée: There is no Turkey Deep frying this year, but Karyn Bring Daniels will be bringing mass amounts of fried  Chicken for all courtesy of your Class Reunion fund.
  • Facebook: Some of you also may be additionally invited through a Facebook event in an effort to reach everyone. But eVite is our “official tracker”. You can go to the eVite site and see who has RSVP’d and if they are coming. Please remember to RSVP to your eVite (even if you replied on FB).
  • Sehome classmates: Some of you have asked previously about having Sehome friends come. As we have stated in the past, this is not an official Joint Reunion and we have not contacted Sehome organizers (if we knew who that was?) about it, but we have made clear that any ’68 Mariner is Welcome to come. So if you have a Sehome friend you would like to see there, it’s up to you to contact them and give them the info or direct them to admin@bhs1968.org or our www.BHS1968.org page and encourage them to join us. If you send me their name(s) and emails, I will send them an eVite.
  • If you need to refresh your memory on anything to do with this event, just go to www.bhs1968.org and find all the info there, including a link to directions and a Map. Just click on the Larson’s address and it will take you to Google Maps. Or, just click on 3188 Unick Rd Ferndale, WA 98248 and it will too.

New feature! You can now view the BHS 68 Shuksan Yearbook online

Just click on the picture of the Yearbook to go to a web page running the Yearbook. You can page through it one at a time using the arrows or just clicking near the outside edge of the page. You can also go directly to any page using the slider, as well as run a slide show. Try it out! Note: When loading it may take a little longer the first time you load it, depending on your internet speed and other factors, but will be faster loading after that. So be patient.

If you have a problem such as your device doesn't support Flash or have the right browser extensions, you can still view the yearbook as a PDF file. Click here to view or download the pdf file. (Be patient, it is a large file and takes awhile).
