A Sad Announcement

It is always a sad day when we announce the death of a former Classmate

We were just informed of the passing of Nancy Brocht Verville. Nancy left LHS in her Junior year.

We remember her for her great smile and as being a very friendly person. Nancy lived in Old Town, Florida, she was 73 at her death.

RIP Nancy



Donna, the Class of 1963 wishes you the BEST Birthday ever, and naturally special Birthday wishes from the Editor!




November 6th


Make sure YOU vote!





The cute little girl who as a teen became the beautiful Carol Cheetham at LHS. 

Carol moved to Alabama, married had a family then....when most of us are thinking about taking it easy...not Carol! Carol volunteered to be a FIRE FIGHTER, yes I said a FIRE FIGHTER.  After years of fires, and emergency calls our Carol is going to retire. Pictured here our little lady receives her badge and retirement.

Carol from all your LHS 63 friends we wish you the very best, and thank you for all your service. We all LOVE YOU CAROL!

Can You Name this Beautiful Young Lady? The picture was taken on June 10th 1963

  Truly Wonderful gal, and Packer!

Anne Solomon


Heard from Loni Marsh the other day, she is doing well, lives just south of Largo these days.

Loni back in 1963 and just a year ago when several of us met out at the Pub on IRB. This is Carol Cheetham and Loni.

Loni and date at the Prom, May, 1963


Use this web site and send Loni an email

The Class of 1963 grew to love this beautiful young lady named Anne Jeanette Solomon. Many us us got to visit with "Annie" 50 years later in 2013 when Annie came back to Largo for our 5oth Reuion. She was the same person, we all loved her the same. 


Annie and Harry Jett celebrate with a drink when Annie visited in 1993.



How Proud We Are of You 

Carol Cheetham, Sweetheart the entire LHS Class of 1963 Loves You!   At the young age of 39 (ha ha) Carols is still out volunteering as a fightfighter. Carol you are indeed a credit to our Class. Bless You Hon!




This Colored Pencil drawing of the late Rock and Role singer, TOM PETTY was done by our own classmate 

Darrell Schreiber

What a wonderful job Darrell did on this drawing. Send Darrell a message and let him know how we appreciate his work.











Class of 1963 members who were at the 2018 Historical Socity Cracker Supper. All had a really fun time. Jim McGee and Charlie Harper also attended but were, as usual working their butts off at the time of the picture. Thanks to all for attending...and everyone else should join in next year.




If you are up in NC stop by pay our buddy Ann a visit.

Do You Remember 

Two BEAUTIFUL young LHS Juniors. Photo taken in December of 1961.  Remember who they are?

Joanne and Meredyth



Classmates...We need your help in keeping this web site going. Information on our classmates from LHS 1961, 1962, our own 1963 and 1964 is very important to  us. All of these folks were our friends as well as classmates!

Very important that  you keep  your profile up to date...that you keep in touch from time to time so that we know you are OK, and where you are. Believe me, no one except Jim McGee and Charlie Harper have access to any private information such as your address or phone number. It has been 55 years since graduation, most of us are now in our early 70s, time continues to fly on. 

As you look at these old photos and see yourself or your friends remember that those friends are still wanting to hear from you.....please send photos or write a message soon. 


Yup, I'm really getting older...
