YOU CAN FILL IN THE BLANKS WITH WHAT MISCHIEF WE FOUR COULD DEVELOP WITH TRANSPORTATION.

     IN THE NINETIES I MADE CONTACT WITH BO AGAIN IN SAN FRANCISCO VIA INSTANT MESSAGING ON AOL, YEH TECHNOLOGY.

     WE CONVERSED FREQUENTLY THIS WAY AND THIS IS WHERE I CAME TO KNOW BO AS AN ADULT AND OF HIS LIFE IN S.F. AS A CAMERMAN WITH ABC TV AS WELL AS HIS CHILDREN AND THEIR STRUGGLE TO CARE FOR HIM IN HIS ILLNESS.

     BO HAD CANCER. IT HAD SPREAD INTO HIS SPINE AND CLAIMED HIS LIFE AND ANOTHER CLASSMATE IS GONE.

Betty Jo Lykins  ::  1965 Betty Jo Lykins Seibel  ::  1997

    In Memory of Betty Jo Lykins Seibel

Full Name: Betty Jo Lykins Seibel

Last Address: 2904 Five Oaks Dr., Lilburn, Georgia (a suburb of Atlanta)

Last Occupation: Homemaker

Date of Passing: September 1, 2000

Husband’s Name: Ralph G. Seibel

Children: Nikole Sue Bonds - Lawrenceville, GA AND Rochelle Jones - Magee, MS

Parents: Mr. & Mrs. Herschel Lykins, Centerville OH

Siblings: David Lykins, Dallas TX Barbara S. Trump, Centerville OH

Grandchildren: Laurel Christine Bonds and Chloe Elizabeth Bonds

Do you know what she would think she accomplished? Jo was proud of the great marriage she shared with her husband and of her two daughters that had grown into happy adults.

Interests/Hobbies: Interior designing, antique collecting, reading

Memorable Trips/Job Assignments/Activities: Assistant Manager of the district Election Polls, Staffed the local food pantry

Do you think that her job/life is where she thought it would be when she was in high school? No

Why/why not? I think her life was much more special than she could have imagined it possible in high school. In 1978 when she was 32 years old Jo was diagnosed with terminal cancer. It had spread throughout her lungs and chest as well as in her esophagus paralyzing her vocal cords so she could not speak. She was given 3 weeks to live. The prayer of her heart was that God would allow her to live to raise her daughters who were 6 and 3 years old. God answered her prayer and she was completely healed with no signs of cancer and her vocal cords healing so that she could speak again. She then traveled around the country with her husband sharing her testimony in his ministry.

Do you think if she could start over, she would /would not make the same choices she did the first time around? Yes

What do you think she would have done differently? No, she was very happy but especially thankful for her life.

Is there any final thought that you would like to share with us? I was 10 years younger than my sister and don’t remember much of her high school days. She was shy and maybe many of you never got to know her. Her family would like her to be remembered for the soft-spoken, gentle heart that she was. She was a very devoted wife to her husband of 31 years and was a friend to every person she came in contact with. She lived to raise both her daughters, see one married and the other graduate from college to pursue a Nursing career. She even got to meet and spend 2 years with her first grandchild. Her life was so full and she was very fulfilled. We miss her every day and at the same time are so thankful for all the years she was with us.

Please share the circumstances of her passing: Jo became weak and began getting sick frequently in 2000. She was admitted to the hospital the last week of August for kidney failure and developed DIC which caused her death on September 1, 2000.

Respectfully Submitted by,

Her Mother, Sister, and Daughters

Michael Flynn Novak  ::  1965 Michael Flynn Novak  ::  1998

   In Memory Of Michael Flynn Novak

Full Name: Michael Flynn Novak

Last Address: 605 San Bernardino Trail...Union, Ohio 45322

Last Occupation: Clinical Social Worker in private practice

Date of Passing: January 29, 2001

Wife’s Name: Linda Cox Novak...Married on April 20, 1968

Children: Ross Novak, Age 31 - Director of Residence Life at Manhattanville College, Purchase, NY. AND Melinda Glovka, Age 28 - Social Worker in the Emergency Room at Miami Valley Hospital.

Parents: Harold and Marian Novak

Siblings: Ron Novak

College And Other Education: Mike graduated from Wright State with a Bachelor's Degree in Rehabilitation Counseling. Then he received his Masters Degree in Social Work from Ohio State.

Interests/Hobbies: Mike enjoyed reading trivia books and watching Television to relax.

Accomplishments/Achievements: To me a major accomplishment of Mike's was to complete his masters Degree after having his right leg amputated above the knee. He would work all day, then drive to Columbus to attend classes, then getting home around 2am. He did this to make our life better. Also, the last six years of his life, Mike was unable to work, which was devastating for him. He handled the situation with such spirit that he was an inspiration to those around him. He was quite a man!

Do you think that he accomplished in his life/job what he thought he would be when he was in high school? I think Mike accomplished much more than he ever thought he would. Life played some tricks on him, but he made the most of each situation.

Is there any final thought that you would like to share with us? Mike had the wonderful ability to get along with most people so much, that even people he just met would tell him their life story. After his death, I learned just how many lives he had touched. Mike made the most of his fifty-four years.

George Steinert  ::  1968 George Steinert  ::  2002

  In Memory Of George Steinert

Full Name: George D. Steinert

Last Address: 2725 Evermur Drive, Dayton, Ohio 45414

Last Occupation: Sales Rep. for heavy construction equipment

Date of Passing: November 20, 2002

Wife’s Name: Nancy (Marker) Steinert Class of 66’ Fairview

Children: None

Parents: Deceased

Siblings: None

Grandchildren: None

Do you know what he would think he accomplished? A wonderful 34 + year marriage and a life filled with many friends

College/Other Education: Wright State, B.S. Marketing

Interests/Hobbies: Boating, guns and dogs

Memorable Trips/Job Assignments/Activities: Traveling to Bermuda and Hawaii, but favorite place, Southern Kentucky and creating a second home on Lake Cumberland

Regrets: None, did not think about the future

Do you think that his job/life is where he thought it would be when he was in high school? He may have been having too much fun in high school and not thinking of the future

What do you think he would have done differently? We agreed that we would have done many things differently, but didn’t really live with regrets. .. Just things like job choices and home choices. I’m certain he would have made the same marriage choice!

Favorite Memories/Teacher(s) of Colonel White HS: Fannie Chazin and Bing Davis

Classes/Courses: College prep.

Activities: Not involved with any activities associated with school that I know of – Just interested in cars and boats

Classmates/Pals: John Wheatley, John Macher, Dale Holloway, Fred Thompson, Steve Ralston, Bob Irwin, Greg Marsh

Weekend Events: Probably never even attended a football game or play

Is there any final thought that you would like to share with us? George and I didn’t spend much time these last few years "making plans", but instead were living each day pretty fully. We felt that while many are planning for the future, God is chuckling.

     George died suddenly of an apparent heart attack, losing consciousness while cleaning leaves from the gutters of our house, after a full day working, and about a month after "beating" cancer the second time in 4 years. Until that afternoon, he was never diagnosed with heart disease.

     Because he was pretty quiet in school (except with his friends/family away from school), most of you don’t know how smart and funny he was. He was a loyal friend, husband and uncle who entertained everyone with whom he spent time. George Stories are legend in our family and circle of friends.

     We are very grateful that you would take the time to share this information about your loved one with those of us who shared four or more important years with him.

Respectively submitted by his loving wife,

Nancy Marker Steinert
