I feel that the short bio entered for Kay considerably understated his accomplishments, and I am sure I didn't know but a fraction of them. Kay was a "one off" type of guy. He would sit in some classes doodling math problems but ignoring what he was supposed to be doing. Most of us were not aware of his intellectual firepower until he was announced as one of the five! National Merit Scholarship Semi-Finalists from our class. For those who may have forgotten, that number of winners placed MHS Class of '58 among the highest ranks of all of the High Schools Clases in the US; I believe it was the highest number of winners for any High School in the entire West. The other winners from MHS were Nolan Clark, Lance Taylor, Joan Ream and Linda Crane. Cudos to them. Kay was the surprise to me as he didn't push himself very hard in High School and didn't come out with particularly high grades. As a consequence he wasn't accpepted at some of the Name schools but ultimately matriculated at Tulane in New Orleans. I lost track of him from there so if any of the readers of this note can add to the post college career of Kay please do. Kay certainly marched to a different drummer but I respected and liked him a lot. He was a credit to his family. Larry Grimes, March 6, 2019.

Life has been good for Denise and myself We still live in Cardston, but spend 4 months each year here in St. George while the winter wears itself out up in the more northern climes.. My best to your and yours always!!

Hello Sheldon. Happy happy happy. That's a mighty fine-looking airplane. I remember fondly the two of us doing When the Saints Go Marching In at an assembly I can't believe that in those days they allowed one to Blacken the face which I did in my invitation of Satchmo. Fond memories good luck and many more years for you Larry
