My name is Bob Poksay, HHS class of '53, formerly living in Cornell Heights. My dad owned the store at the bottom of the hill. I appreciate your work in keeping HHS classmates informed. I am enclosing the obituary of my brother, Lawrence "Butch" Poksay. Like many of his classmates, he left HHS toward the end of his senior year to enter the service. He piloted a B-17 during WW ll and later flew Airforce Two for several Vice Presidents of the USA. Perhaps sometime you will have use for info on one of our departed heroes. I believe he was in the class of '43.

JUNE 20, 2007, THE FOLLOWING UN-SIGNED EMAIL WAS RECEIVED FROM A RELATIVE OF THE MESDAY FAMILY. YES, CLARENCE WAS THE NAME THE WRITER HELPED ME TO REMEMBER. SORRY I CAN'T CITE THE SOURCE OF THIS EMAIL BUT IT WAS OBVIOUSLY WRITTEN IN HASTE.
He was next to the youngest.... His name was Clarence. Recently, the last Mesday brother, Harry passed away. All of the brothers, visited Poksay's at one time or another. Me too! lol
