1867: Martin Schwartz   (hope you don't mind … — Marty Soup Campbell)

Rommie, what a great idea and a great tribute to one of our most memorable classmates.  Bob Bost (Doctor "X") and I first met as tesmmates on our Gillette Music little league team when we were 11 years old.  We played baseball together through high school and American Legion ball until Bob got signed to a professional contract with the St. Louis Cardinals.  We became great friends and I can truly say he was one of the funniest people I have ever known.  Whenever I would see him in later years we had tons of laughs rehashing old times.  We lost Bob way too early.  I, too, am in Florida and can't make the game but would love to be there.

Lois Shelton has just published her first and only book in her life, her whole-life memoir. She cannot post on our website. I am posting this for her:

In 1951 my mother took a Greyhound bus from the snowy north woods to Chicago with me in tow and $10 in her pocket. She quickly found a job in Evanston which was her target town and a good choice. While we had rough years getting stable housing, changing schools, securing work it eventually paid off.

My mother was the daughter of Finnish immigrants that had 8 children and died young leaving my mother as the care taker of the younger children at age fourteen. At twenty she went to Pasadena as. Rosie the Riverter to make Bombs and in 1947 I was born.

My life was unstable with many ups and downs but ETHS gave me the foundation to go in a better direction. With an education,adventures and taking risks. To reach goals my life could be called non traditional but there are many ways to live a meaningful and fulfilling life.

(book available at BOOK BABY BOOK SHOP, Barnes & Noble or Amazon).

Marty Campbell has left an In Memory comment for Stephen Cohlmeyer.
Jan 04, 2022 at 4:16 PM

I knew Stephen relatively well and mutually kindly from 2nd grade through Orrington elementary, Haven Jr High, most expecially through pre-senior-year sharing basketball practice at ETHS, though never in class as i recall, and i doubt in the same hall (mine south), and all along before-and-likely-during college (those years a wild blur to me in both his and my lives, but i know we shared them with each other by some significant means, and followed parallel mutually driven paths) we shared occasional deep & family embraced visits within his large family home(s, 2 successive) of at least 3 "boys" home, and possibly also my 2 boy family home, i'll halve to ask my brother, which is a hard thing to do at this time perhaps for all of us boys now in 4th quarter together, i dunno.  it became very hard very sadly for Steve and I this last decade or two, when he felt my personality change in our adulthood after we had both left our family homes after college by respective long distances and had kept in touch with my remotely occasional visiting him and Cindy in their sequential parts of Canada.

The last time I saw them was in 1987, a preplanned visit that fell by chance immediately upon the tragic death of my travelling companion, a fact alone that may have colored Steven's eyes and heart considerably.  (89 was an ever increasing fateful year for me, including Hurricane Hugo back on Saint Croix USVI, and loss of contact with my only sibling due to anger in Tom's whole family and his own bipolar continuing episodes to now today, since that date of trigger.)  anyway there was a lot of silence until finally in May 2020 he wrote me a typically beaautifully written and succinct page explaining, in his eyes, " … Marty was always full of cheerful, or sad, energy, but that his (your) focus was always on himself (you).  After lots of good times, but always with this one-sided character, …." 

In honor of my now late and very dear friend, neighbor, class, and teammate Stephen, I would not post this obit, nor make this long comment on  except in solidarity that this whole site represents, and that i know Steve and i felt and indulged enthusiastically together at the time.  i do this for us. 

in our senior year as i recall, he was supremely strong in soccer and in (i think mostly visual) art.  i did not participate in either, and was my self out the last and most glorious half of b-ball season with mono.

i know Steve wanted nothing to do with  i encouraged him to join, and others probly did, several times.  i fwded him pastes of this site exchanges occasionally, especially in relation to soccer.

i have numerous answers to many questions already here, and several unasked yet that he and i shared our common answers to.  but i will refrain from doing more damage to his own strong-held intentions, until i contact his wife who i know as well as he in full adulthood, and his son who i don't know but envy, and show them this damage so far, and humbly ask their blessing for any more, and beg their blessing for this much.  this could take some time.

steve is second of my only two dearest friends from all of h.s. continuing.  i will not go into the first at this time, but i have already and will again, Oh Wordless One spare life.  — grateful ole marty to thuh class of 64

Chet.  Thankyou for making these amends publically in this in memory forum.  Thank you for joining our website for the very purpose you did.  I think this is most appropriate, for me and all of us.  And your amends are deeply accepted, at very least by me.  Bless you.  Bless your recovery.  Bless your sincere mourning in this instance, this poignant and unique celebration of Susan's life.  Selah
