Chris was a true friend, he looked out for me like no other. I’ll never forget when we were freshmen a guy who was a senior was really bothering me everyday. I told him about it which maybe I shouldn’t have, we were outside between classes and here comes the guy......... uh-oh!!!!!!! He literally Picked the guy up off the ground and said....” your not going to bother her anymore, RIGHT?” I thought the guy would pee himself. He never bothered me again. That was just one thing he did for me.
We wrote back and forth a lot when he went in the army. I was heartbroken when I found out what had happened to him. WONDERFUL PERSON I truly loved him.
From Scott Montgomery on April 11th, 2019
Chris was quite a guy, I first met him when my brother was dating his sister Kitty. Everyone I met from that family was wonderful, including Chris, but he had a real "Wild side" to him. I particularly remember a time when the windshield on his Camaro cracked so he took it out and we drove 70 MPH with no windshield! That was quite the ride... RIP old friend.
From Jeanette Bennett on April 11th, 2019
my family lived across the street from the Dellwo’s. I started my babysitting career taking care of the little kids. One time I got scared and called home. My sister brought over our Herman Shepard dog! The Dellwo’s were good people and great neighbors!

Bonny was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on January 10, 1952 and grew up in White Bear Lake, Minnesota. She graduated from White Bear High School and attended Gustavus Adolphus Academy and studied computer science at Portland State University. She married David Erickson on July 3, 1972 in a small ceremony in Los Angeles. Bonny worked at 3M and Pacific Power for many years before retiring at the age of 43 to focus on her family and her art. She moved from Portland to Dexter Oregon with her family and became an intergral part of the community, helping to both found the Dexter Library and start up the Dexter Farmer's Market. She is survived by her devoted husband David, her three loving children Faye (Erik Krippner), Naomi (Kris Kohl), and Daniel, as well as her 3 beautiful granddaughters, Sohpia, Norah, and Audra, on whom she doted. She is also survived by her parents Phylis and Bill Huck, and her sister Sandi Doane.
Wonderful Bonny who I had known since 5th grade Mr. Ouimette's class at Bellaire School!
We became good pals through horseback riding lessons, church activities, and Harry Meyers Concert Band. I learned to play oboe from her, though my main band gig was the alto sax since the boys in that section were really cute. (You know you are, Mike McGrath)
As fellow Pacific Northwesterners, we reconnected a few years before her passing. She was vibrant community organizer in little Dexter, Oregon. A kind, intelligent soul, I miss her.

Linda and I were best friends! When I was on South Africa on my exchange year (1969) we kept in touch. When I got home we picked up where we left off. During the 1970 year we skipped school a lot. We went to the St. Paul library, and to a murder trial downtown! We went to Moorhead State College in 1070. She was so intelligent and a talented artist. She helped me a lot when we took philosophy together! We shared a dorm room together that year. Then we moved back to the twin cities, and ended up going separate ways. We kept in touch occasionally. I was devastated to hear of her death. It continues to be difficult at times. She was always there when I needed her. She was an amazing friend!!
From Stephen Phillips on March 21st, 2019
Linda was a brilliant, beautiful person whom I'd known since we progressed through our grade school years, together.
Along with Lucia Fellows and Jim Landkamer, we were "drafted" together in our sixth grade class as a four-some, to participate in Hamlin Hagander's masters thesis - a program that was utterly invalidated and futile, as he merely handed out the extensive materials and never followed through with the group meetings and discussions that were mandated).
Quiet, reserved, she was nonetheless brilliant, with a wry sense of humor.
Several years after graduation, I tried to look her up - only to discover to my abject horror and devastation, that (at the age of 23) she had passed on January 22, 1975 - the victim of her "husband", who took her life before ending his own.
I often reflect on that tragedy, and will always wonder if things might have been different, had I kept in touch...
Linda, you are sorely missed and much loved by many.

Cheri was one of the nicest persons to ever be friends with. She didn't have an unkind bone in her body. All those who knew her would agree. She just was so kind to everyone.
All the years I had known her, I never heard her say anything negative about anyone.
I am proud she was a friend. RIP Cheri.

I remember Dan being one of the fastest, strongest athletes in our class. When we were in elementary school, like 4th-5th grade, a lot of us played "Flag Football" in the summer "Rec" league. The only team we could never beat was Dan's team because Dan was built like a brick you know what, and he could just run right over you! Between him and Lenny Dupre we were always outmatched as they could knock you down like bowling pins whenever they had the ball, very frustrating to say the least! Like a lot of our classmates he was gone too soon. RIP Dan.

John was my best friend growing up just a couple of doors down from our house. They moved in around 4th grade and we spent many hours and days playing football, baseball, golfing and swimming at the beach. One of the nicest guys you'd ever want to meet, he always had your back. I still miss him to this day. RIP old friend....

'Let us not cling to morning, do not stand on my grave and weep. I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow, I am the sunlight opened grain, I am the gentle autumn's rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand on my grave and cry. I am not there, I did not die.'.
