  1. I grew up in Santa Clara . Lived there until 1970.Went to Buchser high until 1970. Went to Curtis Junior High and Sutter Elementry. I have been wondering about some of my former classmates. I hope I can make the picnic in August .

  2. Tom Tritch is listed in the Memoriam section, class of 1966. It says om Tritch, not Tom Tritch. Thought I’d mention it.

  3. Sadly, Jack Girdis, Class of ’66 passed away this past Spring. I don’t know the exact date. He was married to my sister for over 15 years before they divorced. My sister doesn’t use email so thought I would let his classmates know. Jack lived in Florida when he passed away.

    • Thank you for letting us know. We have updated our records.

    • Recently pulled out a yellowed LP w/”Girdis” written on it…knew Jack Girdis from my hippie days in Los Gatos CA I.e. he was part of our tribe. It grieves me learn he’s gone. He gave me a perfectlydelightfulcuttingedge LP “Reflections In A Crystal Wind” circa 1965 therefore he will always be remembered as long as I live.

    • Judy Grossi- Was Jack related to Rob Girdis class of 71 who died in/ near Seattle WA in 2009

  4. I wanted to let you know that Sharon Reimer , class of 1970, died Feb. 18, 2011. She is missed by many of us.

  5. Kenneth Duret, Class of 81, passed away on January 7th. Here is his obituary. Everyone is invited to attend his memorial service.

    Kenneth John Duret, age 52, passed away on January 7th surrounded by family and friends in his home after a 9-year battle with chronic Lyme disease. Ken was born in Niagara Falls, New York and came to California when he was 8 years old. Ken graduated from Buchser High School in 1981 and moved to Santa Cruz where he would spend the rest of his life loving the ocean and redwoods.
    Ken was a private pilot, surfer, fisherman, hiker, bird watcher, musician, photographer, lumberjack, construction worker, web designer, entrepreneur and small business owner. Really, there were few things Ken was afraid to try. One of Ken’s passions was gathering wild mushrooms. He would cook them up at family gatherings and smile as we cautiously tasted his find of the day.
    Kenny, as his sisters call him, is survived by a large, loving family: His parents Arthur and Camille Duret; his brothers and sisters: Mike (and Becky) Duret, Jennifer (and Yavar) Duret Khaleghi, David (and Lindsay Taylor) Duret, Camille (and Steve) Wheeler; his 8 nieces and nephews: Daniel, Stephanie, and Matthew Duret, Maral Khaleghi, Osha Duret, Ava, Charlotte, and Lauren Wheeler.
    Ken’s life touched many people in many ways. Please join us on Friday, January 29, 2016 at 2:30pm at the Pacific Cultural Center, 1307 Seabright Ave, Santa Cruz to celebrate memories of Ken’s life with his family and friends.

  10. Buchser High classmate of 1960 Bonnie Tagami passed away in 2015. She was a dear friend of mine throughout my years at Buchser.

  11. Joe Schmidig passed away Dec. of 2017 RIP Slim. Also Bob Liberman has passed. Both class of 62.

  12. I found out I need a copy of my graduation certificate. How do I get it? Our school doesn’t exit any more. Class of 1970

  13. A Buchser HS ring was found. Must have been from someone who attended but didn’t graduate from Buchser as it was closed before that class graduated. You must have bought your ring as a fresh or soph. It says Buchser Class of 1983.
    I was contacted by someone who found this ring 35/36 years ago, forgot about it and came upon it again and wanted to find the owner. They contacted me. The initials on the ring are JW. Please contact me for further identification. Hoping for a happy ending.
