Largo Senior High School
Class Of 1963


God Bless the USA


In Honor of the LHS Class of 1963 and the Class President, our friend,                  Mr. John Pecarek.

At the new Largo High they have built a walkway called the "Packer Walk of Pride". The LHS Class of 1961 and the Class of 1964 each donated a blue bench to be place along the walkway. With money left over from our 50th Reunion the LHS Class of 1963 donated the third bench on the walkway. The well built steel bench should last many years into the future. Hopefully many more Largo High Classes will add benches to the Pride Walkway. 

The bench was donated in the name of out Senior Class President and friend of all, Mr. John Pecarek. On Friday, September 20 before the Largo Packer Football Game the bench was presented to Largo High School. Mrs Paula Pecarek and Daughters Holly and Beth joined several LHS '63 class members as the bench became a part of Largo High History. 

Largo High Class of 1963 members should be proud indeed. On behalf of the entire Class we THANK Mr. and Mrs. Jim McGee (Bonnie and Jim) for their outstanding leadership in this fine accomplishment. 

John, as you look down on your beloved Largo HIgh know the pride all of us had in knowing you, and having you call us a friend.  Editor's Note: John's Father Stan Pecarek was Editor and Publisher of the old Largo Sentinel Newspaper. I can hear him yelling now.....STOP THE PRESSES...."We have a news story about my Son, John




Remember these beautiful young ladies?

A classic photo from the late 1940's

This photo from Clearwater Beach in late 1940's clearly shows the Beachcomber Restauarant...still one of the best in all of Pinellas.

How many of you remember this old school building?

The original Largo High School, built in 1913-14 it opened it's doors in the fall of 1914, Just think the tails that building could tell, lasting through WW1, the great hurricane of 1921, the depression, WW2, and the great 1950's.




Can you help me ID the Packers in this photo from 2002. Email me at:
