I was just informed by Phil Little's Pastor Don Carpenter, that Phil passed away last month due to aggressive form of cancer. These are Pastor Don's words " His faith was strong and we believe he is in a better place, a place of no pain or sorrow." I had not heard from Phil for months until I contacted his place of worship and was informed of his passing. I was glad Linda and I had a chance to see him this past summer when he was in the hospital. Phil no doubt was an interesting and independent guy. Rest in peace my friend

On Monday, June 18, 2016 Linda and I stopped to see Phil Little, in Winsted, Ct. on our way to Vt. Unfortunately, Phil was not at home but a his neighbor informed us he was in Torrington Hospital, so we went to Torrington Hospital. We found Phil in good spirits but clearly dealing with some serious health issues. We had a great visit, and Phil was certainly pleased to see us. As stated, Phil is dealing with some challenging health issues but his faith is strong as is his desire to beat those health problems. Phil is somewhat off the grid, he has no phone but does receive snail mail and on occasion does respond to letters. His address is Phillip Little, 140 Wetmore Ave. Winsted, Ct. 06098

On Friday, June 23,2017 I had the pleasure of having lunch with Jim Scott and Rick Fruechtenicht, at Jim's club overlooking downtown Birmingham, Ala. It was great spending time and conversing with two guys who grew up together, lived in that awesome town of Churchville, Pa and went to both Richboro Elementary and CR together. I also had the pleasure of meeting Jim's lovely wife Jill and being shown Jim's great house and grounds. My thanks to Rick who I followed out of Jim's residence to get me back on the right interstate and headed back to Montogomery, Ala. A great afternoon spent with some quality guys-take care.

On Saturday, November 19th, 2017 the long awaited golf challenge match of Team Knott vs Team Dolton-Traister was held at the Oak Hill Golf Course, Milford, NJ. For some unknown reason the Golf Channel opted not to carry this historic match. The outcome is not important but team Knott is headed south this winter for intense therapy and golf school. The main point was the day was fun, filled with laughter (and a few words we can't mention) between three "CR 65" classmates and one young guy. Team Knott consisted of Jim Knott (second from left in the picture), captain Kurt Knott, ( poor guy had to put with all those stories from high school but he did fine). Team Dolton consisted of myself on the far right and my team mate and captain Tim Traister. The challenge will continue as the match moves to Team Knott's home course in the spring, providing the snow melts by then. It clearly was a great day between old friends and having Jim's son Kurt with us added to our day. Thanks to our team photographer Patty Traister for taking this picture

On July 20 we took my grandchildren, my sisters grandchildren to Philly for the Franklin Footsteps Walking Tour. Our colonial guide was Steve Zettler, the person in colonial dress and one of our "65" classmates. Steve did an excellent job. He was informative, knowledgeable, entertaining and the kids and the adults had a great time. It was great seeing and catching up with Steve as well as taking part in the tour. If your in Philly, definitely take his tour.
Breadman, Great to see you on the site and finally hearing from you. Great looking daughters and grandchildren. i have two grandchildren, Aaron and Elise who live in Boca Raton, great reason to travel south. I'm very familiar with Falmouth, Maine, my ex's sister lived in Falmouth and i spent a lot of time in that town. Portland has a great bike path and a ferries that takes you to the small islands. You are also in hikers paradise with Katadin and the White Mts. being so close to you. Obviously, I don't frequent Falmouth as much as I use too but it is still is a great place. Enjoy your grandchildren and stay healthy, and in touch. .

For the last few months I have had contact with Phil Little through snail mail. Phil is basically off the grid, (the reason for snail mail) he does not own a car or a computer but does have a cell phone with limited minutes. I have actually spoken with him a few times and he sounds to be in great spirits and good health. Those of us who know Phil, the fact that he is somewhat off the grid comes as no surprise, actually it would practically be expected. Through our communications, I have sent him updates on classmates and their addresses, so if you by chance you receive a letter from him, I probably gave him your address. ( If this violates your privacy, please register your complaints with James Knott & Tim Traister, they handle all my complaints). If you would like to contact him the most effective means is through snail mail, his address is Phillip Little, PO 184, 140 Wetmore Ave. Winsted, CT 06098. His phone number is 860-485-3161, Good luck with that venture. I'm positive he would really enjoy hearing from members of the Class of 65.

On Saturday August 1, i had lunch with Rick Fruechtenicht and Jim Scott in Montgomery, Ala. the first time we had seen each other for some 45 plus years. What a fantastic time catching up and just telling stories from our CR and college days. We met at 11:15 and did not leave the restaurante till 3:30. What a greart day seeing these guys and spending quality time with them-where has the time gone?

The picture below is Tim Traister, who still looks like he could plow into any defensive line. The white haired fellow in the tux is Jim Knott, who just gave away his daughter in marriage on this day. On Jim's left is me, laughing at something Jim said but this was April 11, 2015-can't remember that far back what it was but it was humerous. What a great time, the wedding and spending time with these two guys.
Awesome. Another Churchvilian added to the list. (poetic licence on the word Churchvilian). Glad your on the site and I hope you and Scotty can make to the reunion. Take care.
I grew up with Chris and he was one of my first playmates. We where great friends through Richboro, CR and stayed in touch as we began our teaching careers. Chris for many years worked on the Ocean City Boardwalk in the summer and both our families spent time together. There are some interesting stories from those days in O. C. Chris was a natural leader, a valuable friend and a loyal, dedicated family man. He is missed.
