Bethlehem Central High School, Delmar, NY

 

Deceased Members of the Class of 1964

 

Webpage by Clifford Lamere

September 10, 2014.  Last revised October 8, 2017

 

 

 

 

I received much of the information below on September 9, 2014 from Susan (Smith) Slusarski.  Information had been provided to her in various formats by many members of the BCHS Class of 1964.  That information has been revised for presentation here, an index has been created, and yearbook photos have been added.  Click on a name in the index to be taken to a photo, and either the person's obituary or comments about that person.

 

For each person whose obituary has not yet been found, a search has been made for it on the following websites:

   Legacy

   Spotlight newspaper (Delmar, NY)

   Altamont Enterprise in NYS Historic Newspapers

   Fulton History newspaper site - over 30 million newspaper pages, primarily New York State, but also nationwide

   Obits for Life - obituaries can be posted on this site by funeral homes

   Obituary Daily Times Index, 1995-Present on Ancestry (fee-based)

   United States Obituary Collection on Ancestry (fee-based) (contains extracted facts only; not very good)

 

If no obituary has been located, additional searches have been made on the following sites to find dates of birth and death.

   Social Security Death Index on Ancestry (fee-based)

   Find-a-grave -- gravestone photos and information

 

If you are a 1964 graduate of Bethlehem Central High School, after viewing this webpage you should continue on to your exceptional class website where you can register and see much more information.

 

Your help is needed

If you know of any class of '64 members who are deceased, but not reported here, please send me the information at the email address above.  If you want to look for an obituary, the first three links above would be the best to try.  For Legacy, click on the link, then click on "More Options" in the search box.  Choose a time period if you know when the person died, or choose "All Records".  Search for a female classmate using her married name (unless she didn't marry or she returned to her maiden name after a divorce or death of a husband).  If you find an obituary, copy the link found in the address bar and send it to me.

 

  On the day that a person's name is added to this webpage, a red NEW button is inserted after their name.  It will remain on this webpage for at least three months.  Once you have looked at everyone that interests you on this webpage, if your next visit is within three months, you need only examine NEW buttons to learn about changes or additions since your last visit. 

 

This person was a U.S. military veteran.

 

  This symbol indicates that you should continue reading, because more information, maybe even a second obituary, follows.

 

Often, when I make informative comments below, if I think that the viewer may misinterpret who is making the comment, I put my comments in square brackets [ ].

 

The Class of '64 had 276 classmates named in the yearbook.  For three of them (Marshall Baker, James Frueh, Laurel Rasker), information was provided but the space for the photo was blank.  In the index of deceased members of the class (below), persons are arranged alphabetically by their surname in high school.  Following the maiden name of females, the marriage surname is shown in parentheses, if known.  At the point when there were 45 known deceased class members, 22 were male and 23 were female.

 

INDEX OF 52 DECEASED MEMBERS OF THE CLASS OF 1964 (with 42 obituaries or published death information)

    A double asterisk (**) following a person's name in the index means that no obituary will be found on this webpage, although a yearbook photo (and usually other information) is available.  If obituaries gave no date of birth, the Social Security Death Index and Find-a-grave were checked for birth and death information.

She also married her husband, Ronald Stroh, that year and together they had three children. Due to her husband’s occupation, they moved their fair share; however she always made a beautiful loving home wherever they went. They settled in Cape May in 1999 where Diane was actively involved in the Cape May United Methodist Church, The Garden Club of Cape May, The Nature Center, and the Soroptimist Club.

    Diane was predeceased by her parents Harold and Margaret Byers and her granddaughter Kate Sevcik.  She is survived by her beloved husband of 43 years, Ronald D. Stroh; her daughters, Kimberly (and Michael) Mileszko of Shamong and Melanie (and Joseph) Sevcik of Newport News, VA; her son, Jeffrey (and Alison) Stroh of San Francisco, CA.; two sisters, Suzanne (and Thomas) Menegus of Egg Harbor and Kim (and Harry) Byers-Granito of Ann Arbor, MI. Diane was also blessed with eleven grandchildren, Ryan, Matthew, Natalie, Grace, Hugo, Anna, Nicholas, Luke, Olivia, Isabelle, and Augustine, as well as nieces, nephews, cousins, and many friends.

    The family wishes to express their deep appreciation for Diane’s doctors and caregivers at Duke University Medical Center in North Carolina, as well as all who have helped her and her family these past two years. The loving, compassionate care she received blessed her immensely.

     A Memorial Service, and time to meet with the family, will be offered from 1pm to 3pm on Saturday, April 23rd, in the Cape May United Methodist Church, 635 Washington St., Cape May with the Memorial Service beginning at 1pm. Interment will be private.

Deitz, William Joseph "Bill" Jr.

     

     

     

   [William died November 3, 1969.  Deitz is very often misspelled as Dietz in newspaper articles.  A 2010 phone book has four entries for Deitz in Delmar, but none for Dietz, which would pretty well confirm that his yearbook spelling of Deitz is correct.  My thanks to Neal Relyea and Claudia Phillips Cunningham (see next) for their comments which gave clues that allowed me to find death information. -- Cliff Lamere]

It was the year the towers went up in downtown Albany. I remember it had just happened when Bill was working on one of the buildings and fell through some kind of a shaft to his death. I remember the building was on fire (at least one of them)....a small fire, but it was a big news event. I was there with my fiance, Dennis, and we were watching the t.v. and radio people covering the building as it burned. George Lezotte, a d.j. from I think it was WPTR, was on site. I remember that. Anyway, if you look up the year of the fire, that is exactly when Bill passed.—Claudia

Subject: Re: Bill Deitz

 

Tim- Most of what was said on your website was close to the facts. Some was correct. Just to clarify and add some detail:

Someone said Bill was in the Army / paratroopers. He actually volunteered for the Marine Corps. I have a photo, somewhere, of him in dress blues, just before shipping out to Viet Nam. Yes, he was a door gunner on a Huey (helicopter- VERY dangerous duty, as the enemy targeted these helicopters). His helicopter brought out the dead and wounded, as well as transporting troops into fire fights and fire zones. He was involved in several fire fights, returning fire to support and protect his precious cargo.

He died a few days short of Halloween, 1969. He was working for his father's construction company, on the Empire State Plaza, in the Corning Tower.

Bill was a mason's helper, working on the retaining walls in front of the elevator shafts. He was working out of a construction elevator. The investigation into his death determined that he stepped back into what he thought was the elevator car, for building materials. Unfortunately, someone had accidentally pulled the elevator car up. The investigators found Bill's tools on the 22 floor and thereby determined that he had fallen 22 stories to his death. Bill's dad found about his son's death on the car radio, on the way home from work that terrible day. It was a closed coffin, due to the severity of his injuries. Most of this info came directly from his father, some from his mother. Bill's mother and mine were sisters.

Thank you,

Neal Relyea

 

 

Engle (Webb), Barbara Cole      [December 3, 1946 - March 8, 2009]

    Barbara E. Webb, a former girls basketball and swimming coach in Williamsville schools, died Sunday in Cornerstone Hospice in Tavares, Fla., after battling cancer. She was 62.

    Born Barbara C. Engle in Albany, she earned a bachelor's degree from Cortland State College and taught briefly in the Hamburg school district before moving to the Williamsville district in 1969. She taught physical education for 32 years, mostly at Williamsville North High School, where she also coached a variety of girls sports, including swimming and basketball.  Mrs. Webb was an accomplished athlete, and in 1972, she was invited to tryout for the U.S. Olympic Team Handball Squad. More recently, she excelled in softball, pickleball and golf, among other sporting activities. “That was absolutely her passion," said George Webb, her husband of 32years.  Since Mrs. Webb's retirement in 2001, the couple lived most of the year in Florida and spent summers in Western New York and Canada.

    In addition to her husband, survivors include a brother, Peter Engle; a stepson, Brian Webb; and a stepdaughter, Christine Tokasz.

    Published 2009 in The Buffalo News (NY), Section: Local, Page: B4  [not found by Cliff Lamere]

BROTHER:  Peter-- She was a good athlete even in retirement (pickleball champ of FL, softball, and golf). She was in such good shape that the Doctors told her that the lung cancer probably didn't show any significant symptoms until it was way too late. Barb and George were in Greece a couple of months before she was diagnosed, and Barb was outdistancing the other tourists climbing the historic sites.The only thing that I have is a DVD that was compiled by Barb's friends in Florida with photos (slide show format) from her childhood forward to 2009 when she passed away.  So, I don't know if I can give you much information other than Barb passed away in March 2009 in Leesburg, Florida after a brief illness (lung cancer even though she was a non-smoker).  She taught for over 30 years in the Williamsville, NY School District.  Barb was a Physical Education teacher and Coach. She graduated from SUNY Cortland in 1968. Barb was married to George Webb of Buffalo.  She was step-mom to Brian and Chrissy Webb. Barb and George had homes in Ontario, Canada and Florida. In retirement Barb was very active, playing golf, pickleball and softball.  I believe that she was a Florida state champion in pickleball in her age group.  She also had a very low handicap in golf and often played in foursomes with the men.  Barb and George traveled extensively in retirement in addition to enjoying their homes in Florida and Canada.

More comments from Peter Engle:

Yes, Barb was quite an athlete.  She was in such good shape that the Doctors told her that the lung cancer probably didn't show any significant symptoms until it was way too late. Barb and George were in Greece a couple of months before she was diagnosed, and Barb was outdistancing the other tourists climbing the historic sites.

More from Peter Engle:

    Thank you for the thoughts about Barb.  She was a good athlete even in retirement (pickleball champ of FL, softball, and golf).

I went through my stuff and realized that I don't have an actual obituary for Barb.  The only thing that I have is a DVD that was compiled by Barb's friends in Florida with photos (slide show format) from her childhood forward to 2009 when she passed away. 

    So, I don't know if I can give you much information other than Barb passed away in March 2009 in Leesburg, Florida after a brief illness (lung cancer even though she was a non-smoker).  She taught for over 30 years in the Williamsville, NY School District.  Barb was a Physical Education teacher and Coach. She graduated from SUNY Cortland in 1968. Barb was married to George Webb of Buffalo.  She was step-mom to Brian and Chrissy Webb.

    Barb and George had homes in Ontario, Canada and Florida. In retirement Barb was very active, playing golf, pickleball and softball.  I believe that she was a Florida state champion in pickleball in her age group.  She also had a very low handicap in golf and often played in foursomes with the men.  Barb and George traveled extensively in retirement in addition to enjoying their homes in Florida and Canada.

Note from Cliff Lamere:  I am including the wedding announcement for Paul Gibbs because it tells where the newlyweds were going to reside.  It might be a clue to where he died.  The Army ROTC summer camp article at Fort Bragg, though not part of the US Army, might show his intention to join the Army since it was so far from his home.

My memory is suspect when it comes to Mike Hickok, but as I recall he died when he was riding his bike and was hit by a car.  I think it happened near Kenwood and Borthwick.  I also remember that his father was a well known DJ with WPTR, and they moved soon after Mike's death.  I wonder now, with everybody wearing protective head gear, if that would have made a difference back then.  Probably.  I wear one now, and given the standards of yesteryear, I feel kind of dorky.  We would have been severely ridiculed if we wore anything like that back in the 50's.  I was also remembering how I had a standard Columbia bike, which I thought was wonderful, but pretty soon other guys were getting English bikes, and they were much faster.  Not that I could have kept up with Terry Thornton anyway.  Just think, those nifty English bikes had THREE SPEEDS, and skinny tires—Tom Bromley

Jim and Bill Lorette (twins) were in our class in junior high (8th, 9th grade).  Both boys were very quiet and kind of kept to themselves. I think they were also in our ninth grade class. I don't know if anyone remembers them, but I do.  --Claudia Phillips Cunningham
