Leo High School 50-Year Reunion

From Mike Barry:  Thought you might be interested in this picture. Some of you probably know several of these guys but you may not recognize them, given the passage of time. The names have been added to help with recognition.

The 50 year reunion of the 1963 class from Leo was held over April 25 – 27 on the Southside of Chicago.

A golf outing was held at Silver Lakes Golf Course on the 25th, the reunion itself was part of a Leo Alumni gathering the night of the 26th at the Lexington House and on the 27th an informal dinner with spouses was held at Traverso’s Restaurant.

According to the 1963 Leo yearbook, there were four fellows in addition to myself from St. Ethelreda. They were Pat Adams, Tom McHale, Jim O’Connor and John De La Mar, none of whom attended the reunion. John De La Mar actually attended St. Dorothy’s with me in early grammar school years; I do not recall him (in our class) at St. Ethelreda. Perhaps the Leo yearbook had his parish incorrectly listed. I am guessing but I think he may be married to Melody McCormick; her married name is De La Mar, her husband’s name is Jack and they both live in Champaign, Illinois.

In any event, I suspect that all of us will be having 50 year reunions this year. Leo’s was great fun, renewing old friendships and recalling some wild & crazy times.
