  1. Can’t believe this. Talked to you a lot on the phone. Will miss you. FJ. I was the reason for the wee early morning trip to okla. FJ told me that. Mary nunley Howerton

  2. The ranks of the “old” timers gets thinner and thinner. Another notable? of MHS has attended his last school reunion. Condolences to the family
    Robert, ’59

  3. My condolences to FJ’s family, I had the pleasure of assisting him with the purchase of a couple of trucks, may he Rest In Peace.

  4. FJ’s family, I have many memories of him: band ( I think he quit during the year) and of course his family cafe in town.
    He has been at many school reunions in the past 50 years and I will miss seeing him. Prayers for your family, Patty Jo Dixon Foose

  5. You feisty, big-hearted guy. The original six of our Hard Scrabble Rabble group has been cut in half, so who’s ‘gonna handle the next “board” meeting without your sage advice? We relied on you for a lot of things, i.e., bronc riding in the Sheridan Lake railroad corrals at 3 a.m., unplanned trips to Oklahoma in the wee hours of the morning, Friday night pitch games with you, Marie and Mickey; wrestling matches with you and Harold where you’d say “no biting you #!!!*”…and oh so much more. I’ve asked Steve to gas up the ’56 Ford wagon for a repeat of that Oklahoma trip. But I don’t want to sleep in a baby bed this time. Okay, it was a youth bed. Get ready. Dress up. White shirts and Levis stuck in an AWOL bag, Buck Owens on the radio. You’re the best ‘ole friend. Rest in peace. Love, Jim Kern and the HSR group.
