Bill Priday, Class of 1970, passed away from a hang gliding accident on October 1, 2005 in Whitwell, TN. For the information and memorial donation and condolences info, CLICK HERE (PDF file) for pertinent notices from his hang gliding club newsletter. Thank you to Tom Stambaugh (1970) for letting MSO know of this tragedy:"Bill and I played together in my first band, he and I were in the drum section of the Pipe Band together, and he taught me how to play the guitar. Bill apparently died the way he lived -- full of energy, daring and heart."
This Class of 1970 Information Section will eventually include the
content of the former 1970 website. Thank you for your patience!

Linda (Lynn) Ridgway (would-be Class of
1970) was tragically taken home to join her other sister Rachel and
the family's father on March 27, 2000. Lynn attended Peary for her Freshman and Sophomore years. Art Ridgway
graduated from Peary in 1966 and Missie Ridgway Rubin in 1968. The person who took her life also took the life of
a beautiful mother of three teenagers. Other sister, Rachel, was killed in February 1980. If anyone from the Class of
1970 knows how to contact Rick Anderson or Jim Wyman, please let Missie Ridgway Rubin know as these two fine
men were friends of Lynn's while at Peary. Our condolences to the Ridgways.
