Class of 1980 should have Michael Herndon. My little brother died from a brain tumor and incompetent uncaring doctors. My brother Robert L. Herndon was class of 1976. He is still kicking in Germany. Thank you.
Thanks, we will take care of it.
Mike Herndon and his father were fantastic people. I can remember playing little league with him and his soft spoken, class personality. His dad was just amazing! Although, I never saw Mike after youth baseball, I will never forget him or his wonderful father!
Hey John I remember you brother that year. He sat next to me in math class.
I have fond memories of Mike. He and I were classmates and Little League team mates. It was tragic to lose him so young.
Peggy Knowles (O’donnell) passed away last year (2014), class of 1973.

I heard today that Tom Juiian class of 82 died in 2008.
Tom Julian was a great kid and class act! His mother was a nice lady and I can remember my childhood hanging out and playing baseball with Tom. I always admired Tom and his family. From little league up!
Thank you John Tofflemire for teaching me chemistry. I’ll miss not seeing you in Aptos Village anymore… RIP.
Mr Tofflelmire was a great teacher. I had him in 10th grade chemistry. I did not know he was still alive when he was. I though him some years older than my 1930 mom.
He told of of his plan accident and injury. Lucky but great person. I never saw him as an adult- wish I had. 1971 Class Oh the slide rule- he taught us how to use it.
Class of 63. I live in East Tennessee and have had correspondence over the years, with Rita Evans Dyer who lives in Oregon.
JoAnn Okada Sperlinski (66)

My sister Michele Campbell Tokiwa passed away 2011 she was class of 1982.
t’s Donna Quon(Yuen). For our BHS class of 1981, Albert Hughes passed away back on April 23, 2005. Back in 2005, I read his obituary in the San Jose Mercury News and I cut it out and kept it. I’ve known Al Hughes since Sutter School Elementary where we went to school together. I believe he and Steven Bilycia, who was also a 1981 Buchser alumnus, lived near each other. Steven Bilycia also passed away in 2012 as it says. Please update the site to include Al Hughes’ name as one of our classmates who has passed away.
Please update the site to include Paul Backhus as a 1982 classmate that passed away. He was my brother-in-law and my daughter’s favorite Uncle. He is sorely missed. He left the earth in 2002, but will always be in our hearts.
I knew Paul and he was a great kid. I remember your family had the Backhus Inn on the El Camino. Nice family. RIP to a wonderful person!
Class of 1970, Janie Hansen Wilson passed away May 24, 2001
Class of 1969 William (Bill) Wilson passed away October 3, 2003
Thank you for the dates Denise.
Bill Wilson was my next-door neighbor. So sad to see he is no longer with us.
I taught in the metal shop for five years until I moved to Bend, Oregon to teach in 1976. Buchser was my first teaching experience and it was a very positive one. A great faculty and the chance to work with some great kids. It saddens me to see that so many of my ex students have passed away.
I feel the same. BHS was also my first full time teaching job with starting the first auto shop program. It was a brand new facilities occupied around December 1976 without heat.
There are many students who have passed on so early before us. Those years at BHS were 3 of my memorable 42 years of teaching. I looked forward to going to “work” to have fun everyday and even get paid for it. BTW, I finish my career in a new auto shop I helped design.m
Take care, stay well. God bless!

April 9 2019 Class 1971 was there for most of the years Pomeroy, LC Curtis, till maybe his senior year till he dropped out!! should bne in Ricky J Micheletti 9my next door neighbor 1963 fwd past HS
On March 7, 2020 my brother Jay (James Jay Bohme) class of 1971 died of COPD. He was always slender 5’8 under 150 but wasted away to 90. He was born in Elizabeth NJ because my California mom married Mr J J Bohme who was a Sailor at Moffett Field and he believed she would love NJ,.which she did not. They returned home to Palo Alto and had me 7 mos later, just in time to make me a California native. Jay was fairly quiet never read, and never kept in touch much. In 1968 he’ took a bullet’ for my mom and went back to NJ to keep my ANGRY DIVORCED dad at bay. That’s why he did not do his senior year at Buchser, Jay graduated Cedar Ridge H.S. 1970 in Old Bridge NJ, the first graduating class. We had both gone to Madison H.S. near there in 1968 when I was an 85 pound 4’8″ Freshman, kept over for a long summer. Luckily we checked into Buchser by November ’68 . Jay joined the Navy in Nov 1970-74 saw many places as a Seabee. Jay was plagued 3 time with Polio aggravated Encephalitis 1st at 3 April 1955 when he got the Salk vaccine made in Berkeley by CUTTER LABS (wikipedia) He was given flawed of 40,000 live activated dose’. Type 2. It affected largely his brain and behavior. Well he was always a bit bigger than me till I got fed in the Navy too. He was married twice no kids he adored his last wife Wendy, who he cared for till her death from Diabetes and Kidney failure in early 2000.He only attended the one Buchser Picnic in 2005 and was never driven to do much other than play the slots in the hills & Reno. My mom had cared for him in Manteca these last 20+ years. Now she’s stuck with me at 89.9 . She’s a 1948 Palo Alto H.S. grad. and still driving. Descd. from Mountain View Pioneer great grandparents (Henderson/Tandy Strong/Wiles) who came in 1851 Many students are related you know. Terry Bohme 1971Buchser
Derrol J Hammer,  (209) 612-7732, Tracy, CA I just scrolled up and saw my friend Derrol died March 4 2020 (Fry’s Mort.). I am shocked to see his name cause he was alright as rain in August. He was well retired from UC Berkeley had a solid place in Tracy for years and was just getting in his retirement of 30 plus years. He was deserving of much more for being so disciplined & happy, and taller and more hair than most of us. Anyone know more?
Hi, Please add Johnny Burnett class of 1977 and Gigi Burnett class of 1978. Thank you
We received the information about Derrell from his daughter, but I’m sorry to say I have no further information.
MY TYPO. Fix please, My brother Jay Bohme is class of 1970, we lived next door to Tony & Infamous “Ricky” Martinelli since 1963 on 975 Live Oak Drive. Lots of stories for those years, as everyone has theirs also.

David Dawes class of 1966, please add his day of death December 28, 2003.
Updated. Thanks, Wayne.
Dear Bruins Who Preserve Our Legacy,
Thanks for this. Life has kept me busy and away from the Buchser community these last many years. Exception was when two of my brothers and I (all Bruins) attended Joe Kornder’s wonderful memorial service at the school.
The passing of our amazing Principal Don Callejon recently sent me onto memory lane. Very saddened to see how many old friends are no longer with us. Every day is a blessing.
John Bronson, Buchser HS 1967
Albert Bateh (’71) passed in March 1993, age 40. According to his widow I ran into working at a bank on Hamilton Ave back in 2002, Jimmy Dolen (also ’71) helped with burial arrangements at the time. Albert and my claim to fame is that we were the first one’s to dive in to the International Swim Center Diving pool when it opened to the public back in the 60s 🙂
I moved away in 1970 and graduated elsewhere in ’71, but still enjoy visiting this site for updates. Thanks for the hard work and contributions.
We added Albert to the In Memoriam page. Thanks, Tim.
Richard “Dick” Johnson passed away January 2020. I believe he was one of the earliest classes of Buchser. Around 1960 or ‘61. He was my neighbor growing up. He hung out with Mike Pitts, Jim Buck, Jim McGuire. He played on the football team as did all those guys. He was a kind gentle soul throughout his life. Always jokes around and laughed.our neighborhood was special having him in it. Our neighbors included the Schmidt’s, Dearungers, Dawes family, Honda family, Wershiners, and Skip and David Stewart as well as Sally Weineke and Donna and Betty Smith. We all grew up together practically from birth so we were like brothers and sisters and had a neighborhood filled with mothers to all of us. Our mothers made sure us kids were their main focus. Our weekends, holidays and summers were always filled with fun and love. A neighborhood like ours is hard to find anymore. He married Cindy Laisure and they had one son. Their son, passed away suddenly October 2020. Could you please add Dick’s name to the list? Thank you✨
Janice – I’m sorry to hear about Richard. I have posted this for you on the Buchser Alumni page on Facebook.
It is indeed a small world – my niece’s daughter married Harold Laisure from that family.
I’d also like to add that Dick Johnson served in VietNam✨
Thanks, Janice, he has been added to the In Memoriam page.
Thank you Tom. ✨
Spanish teacher, Gary Edwards, passed away on August 8, 2020 in his Los Altos, CA home at the age or 82.

As I scanned this honor role, brought back many great times as a Buchser Bruin. We were fortunate to be a small, tight knit school.
We all appreciate you all for keeping our Bruin family updated.
I’ve updated the In Memoriam page with info on Jonathan. I’m so sorry to hear you’ve lost two brothers. I knew Joe and that he had passed away. I was in Chess Club with him and sat next to him in at least one class. I really liked him. Good guy and a great sense of humor. I was sad when I first heard he was no longer with us (BTW, if you’d like to provide the dates of their passing I’ll add that to the web page).
Thanks and take care,
