Holy Redeemer High School
Class Of 1969
Holy Redeemer Memorabilia Goldmine!
Kathy Suchyta (class of '66 and sister of Greg Suchyta) has made a website of Holy Redeemer memorabilia. Many items have been taken from school newspapers, yearbooks, etc. These were items she salvaged when the school closed. Thank you, Kathy!
Class of '69!
A number of classmates have expressed strong support for an idea presented by Ken Seguin to fund the education of one student at Detroit Cristo Rey for one year. The cost is $2,500. We were all so blessed to receive a Catholic education and many of us are able to help a student attending our former high school. The Class of '69 was always known as the most spirited and now we can be part of a greater plan. We are working with Mike Khoury (Detroit Cristo Rey) and Therese Henri Thorn to formulate a plan. Please stay tuned for more information. We are hoping to pool Class of '69 contributions annually to fund a deserving student. Go to www.detroitcristorey.org for more information about the school. We can do this together!
Despite the meager turnout, we had a great time reminiscing about the Big RE!

Coach Bill McCartney
Coach Bill McCartney, who coached at Redeemer from 65-69, was recently inducted into the National College Football Hall of Fame. Here is a great article about him. Thanks to Ken Seguin for his alert to this.
On behalf of Dave's family (and myself), I want to thank everyone for the kind thoughts and a special thanks to those who attended the services whether the funeral home or mass.
On my way home, listening to my iPod, I was listening to Styx and thought I'd post a few verses.
"...reflections in the waves sparked my memory
Some happy some sad
I think of childhood friends and the dreams we had
We lived happly forever
So the story goes
Somehow we missed out on the pot of gold
But we'll try best as we can to carry on.
