DEATH OF CALVIN CADY:  Our KHS1967 classmate Calvin Cady died at age 71 on April 4, 2021, at Longs Peak Hospital in Colorado with family at his side.  Cal had been diagnosed with head and neck cancer in early February, and died from complications of his cancer treatments.  Born in Merriman, Nebraska, he also lived in Colorado, Wyoming, and Idaho before moving to Firestone, Colorado.  Cal worked at Idaho National Laboratory and AMWTP.  Our condolences to the Cady family including sons Scott and Jeff and daughter Stacey who are planning a celebration of life trip in June.  UPDATE:  Calvin's obituary has been published in the Kearney Hub and is posted on our "In Memory" page where KHS1967 classmates can share their memories of Calvin.

DEATH OF TOM NELSON:  We just learned of the death in 2013 of our classmate Tom Nelson.  After graduation, Tom served his country during the Vietnam War as an Airman 1st Class in the U.S. Air Force.  Born on December 4, 1947, Tom died at the age of 65 on June 27, 2013, in Omaha.  Tom is buried in the Kearney Cemetery where his gravestone was marked with a U.S. flag and Veteran medallion this past Memorial Day.  KHS1967 classmates can share their memories of Tom on our "In Memory" page. 

DEATH OF DAN ELSE: Our KHS1967 classmate Dan Else died on May 11 at Creighton University Medical Center - Bergan Mercy Hospital in Omaha.  After graduation, Dan served his country in the U.S. Army as a Green Beret paratrooper during the Vietnam War, then married his high school sweetheart, Trudy Martin (KHS1967) in 1971.  Dan and Trudy would have celebrated 50 years together on June 6.  A memorial service was held in Omaha on Wednesday, May 19, at St. Andrew's United Methodist Church in Omaha; a "Celebration of Life" service will be held in Kearney at a future date.  Memorial donations can be made in Dan's name to Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha at https://donate.omahazoofoundation.org/give  KHS1967 classmates can share their memories of Dan on our "In Memory" page where you can also view Dan's obituary and family photos.  Our sincere condolences to Trudy and Dan's family!

DEATH OF CHARLOTTE WILKEN WEBB:  Our KHS1967 classmate and Class Secretary/Treasurer Charlotte Wilken Webb died on April 24, 2021, at age 71, passing peacefully at home with her husband Lonnie Webb (KHS1966) at her side.  Charlotte was diagnosed with sarcoma cancer three years ago.  The couple moved to Kearney two years ago to be closer to their four children, eight grandchildren, and close friends who were able to visit Charlotte while she was under hospice care.  Charlotte graduated KSC with a teaching degree and taught in Virginia and Florida, while Lon served in the U.S. Navy for 25 years before attending law school in Lincoln.  Charlotte's body will be cremated, so no funeral or burial service is scheduled, but Lon may plan a celebration of Charlotte's life at a later time.  KHS classmates can make a donation in Charlotte's memory to the non-profit Sarcoma Foundation of America using its website at https://www.curesarcoma.org/donate/ and can share their memories of Charlotte on our "In Memory" page where you can also view Charlotte's obituary.   Our sincere condolences to Lon and the Webb family!

IN MEMORY:  We fondly remember 40 of our KHS Classmates who have died since 1967, including Cinda House Bertrand, Jerry Jelken, Jim Lane, and John Ransom, each of whom died in 2020, and Sally Zikmund Husen, Jackie Pahl Lashley, Calvin Cady, Charlotte Wilken Webb, and Dan Else who have died in 2021.   (Sadly, four deaths in all of 2020 compares to five deaths so far in just the first 5 months of 2021.)  Our sincere condolences and prayers are with them, their family, and friends.  If you have any memories about these Classmates that you'd like to share, please visit our "In Memory" page on the black vertical menu bar, then click the link under their name and yearbook photo.  If you know of any other KHS1967 Classmates who have passed away, please click the "Contact Us" link on the black horizontal menu bar to send us an e-mail.
