So great to be among old friends again! The 45th reunion was incredible - We got our OHS assembly band back together and ROCKED THE HOUSE! Definitely looking forward to the 50th. I've rekindled 3 friendships as a result of our reunion and "the computer age", who will now be friends for life. This is a wonderful website!

School Story:

Appeared in the first "Rock and Roll Assembly" with a band consisting of Ed Preman on lead guitar, George Moravek on bass, Billy Buckman on rhythm guitar, Dennis Riley (from Edison) on drums and me doing the lead vocals.
Susan Rich and Tootsie Smith were our Go-Go girls. At least one teacher walked out during a Rolling Stones song. It was priceless

Margie was a sweetheart.  She's dealt with a lot of health issues, and she's at peace now.

All the best to her family and friends.

Al was one of the good guys.  Always friendly, funny, and very kind.  I got to know his family in later years through mutual friends, and Al's son Brett and I bonded as guitar players - he actually played a few tunes with me on occasion, at their family events.  Olney HS had so many wonderful people, and Al was certainly one of the best.  RIP, old friend.

Oh, man....Cathy and I were great buddies in homeroom.  A very sweet lady, lots of fun, and always smiling.  We shared a wonderful hug and conversation at the reunion.  I'm very sad to see this.  RIP Cathy.

Maury was a true comedy classic.   We met in Wagner Jr High, and kept each other in stitches through Spanish class, and I'm sure a few others along the way.  It's cool that he enjoyed his life in such unique ways, with his business and hobbies, and it sounds like he definitely had quality time while he was here.  A good guy!

Beth was a beauty inside and out - sweet, funny, and kind.  We traveled in the same circle of friends for a few years, and dated a couple of times but never got serious.  When I heard of her passing, it was devastating to me, and naturally, it made me think of what could have been. There's no doubt that this beautiful woman is enjoying her heavenly home, and I look forward to seeing her again someday.

I always thought that Dap was the ultimate cool dude - good looking, great dresser, and superb athlete.  Sad to see that he's gone.  RIP.

A true friend is someone who, even though you may not see or speak with them for years, picks up the conversation and good feelings right where you left them off the last time....  George was one of those special friends to me.

Back in the 60's when the music scene was exploding, a bunch of us Olney boys decided to follow in the footsteps of our heroes, and some of us who aspired to be the "Next Beatles" actually found enough talent in ourselves to learn how to play the guitar, and yes, carry a tune vocally.  Even though we formed separate bands with other friends, George, Ed Preman, Billy Buckman, and I bonded as the guitar-playing Olney Guys, who would eventually get together and form our own band of brothers, and along with Dennis Reilly, rocked the house at a few assembly programs; experiences that permanantly bonded our friendship - so much so that we were able to put our band together again for our 45th reunion, which was truly an amazing experience.

It's been made that much more special now that we have realized that it was the last time the five of us would do it.  God willing, we'll do it again at the 50th, and George will be with us in spirit.

George was truly a special guy; passionate about music, politics, friendship, and especially....humor!  He could light up a room with his effervescent personality, and his laughter was one-of-a-kind; I would laugh just hearing him laugh.  Jeanne and I got together with George and Cindy a few times over the years for Keswick Theatre concerts, and it was always fun, and special.  I'm happy to have known such a character, buddy, and dear friend.

Rest in Peace, my dear pal.  I look forward to our next reunion.

I just took delivery of my new CD, BOOMER TUNES - my acoustic versions of 21 classic "Baby Boomer" songs. You'll know ALL of the lyrics! Donations for the CD are given to the Christopher Reeve Paralysis Foundation. Send me a message if you'd like one. Thanks!
