PS duPont Class of '59

Wilmington, Delaware

On Larry Emmett’s Passing

LarryEmmettI have fond memories of Larry, a very deep guy, to say the least. But he had an amazing wit. I have a vague recollection of SNL type skits that Larry created: one where he comes into an office waiting room and starts ‘drumming’ on his briefcase. In another, he spoofed something or other by singing in an operatic voice or maybe it was opera he was mocking. But of course, Larry loved classical music in general.

I remember Larry and I cramming for a German test on Goethe. We went to the public library intending to steal a synopsis of Goethe’s Faust, but someone else beat us to it.

As Larry wrote in my yearbook, “May life be to you, as German is to me … mystifying.” Yes, my friend, life is mystifying, but it was worth the trip knowing you.

Chuck Deaton (Charles A. Deaton, Jr.) and Thelma Lee

I received an email from Chip Deaton, son of Chuck Deaton (Charles A Deaton, Jr; deceased) and Thelma Lee, also of our class, alive, but not well. Because of the private nature of the email, I will put anyone, who inquires or wishes info, in direct contact with Chip.

Special DVD Presentation “Remembering” now online

For those classmates who were unable to attend the Reunion and would like to see 50 years of memories in 15 minutes, check out the low resolution previews [DVD]. Due to copyright restrictions of the audio on YouTube, for public viewing, I had to replace the audio track of one of the videos with music from the Barber of Seville — buy hey, our lives these past 50 years have been one gigantic opera.

For a copy of the high resolution DVD, contact

Remembering Marcia Silverberg Lobman

Marcia - 1959

From 1959 Yearbook

I am Marcia Silverberg Lobman’s brother, PS duPont class of 1963.  I stumbled upon the reunion web site the other day and noted that it reported Marcia passed away.  Marcia died in Anchorage, Alaska on October 4th and a wonderful memorial service was held in New Orleans on October 14th.  I would very much like to hear from Marcia’s high school friends to learn more about Marcia’s high school years from the perspective of her friends, of which she had many.  Could you put the word out that I would welcome calls or emails from Marcia’s friends.

[You may also leave a Comment below for all to appreciate].

Thank you very much.
