Carolyn worked with some wonderful and special children at McFarlin Day Care for over 25 years. Carolyn had a unique memory for statistics, which served her well in following her passion for sports, especially University of Oklahoma teams, both men’s and women’s. She loved listening to local sports radio and conversing about anything sports related. Until her automobile accident in 2006, Carolyn was an active member of Alameda (formerly University) Church of Christ.

Carolyn is survived by her  brother and sister-in-law, Carl Edward and Paula Ann Kelsoe Amend,  nephew, Michael Jeffrey Amend, niece, Jennifer Michele Amend Lee, her husband Christopher Warren Lee, and their daughter Emerson Jade Lee; eighteen Amend-related first cousins, one Anderson-related
“uncle-in-law”, L. E. Wyrick, and three Anderson-related first cousins.

Public Viewing will be on Saturday March 12, 2016, from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM, at Primrose Funeral Home, in Norman, OK.

OK. So if you can read, you already know it's Gary Tom Scott.  And even though he graduated 13 years after we did, he's still a part of the 'Antlers Family." 

Since this website is about friends and family of everyone from the Class of 1969, this is news for all of us.

First of all, Gary has a blog "Mr. Oklahoma at Large A Year to Remember." 
To read his blog,  CLICK HERE. 

Gary was  named Mr. Gay Oklahoma USofA at Large in September and will be competing for the National Title on November 8 in Houston.

Gary is on Facebook for anyone wanting to stay in touch with him.  CLICK HERE

 

Gary says, "I am blessed that Lorianne Brown, Missy Tucker, Stephanie Matthews, and Carla Hatcher were all there at the contest in September to watch and cheer me on. It was heartwarming to have my childhood friends there cheering me on that night. Made it even more special to me to be honest."

 

How many of these classmates can you identify ?

Even though Rick Wells did not graduate in 1969, he is still an Antlers Bearcat,  a VERY successful Antlers Bearcat, and deserves recognition here.

If you are ever in McKinney, Texas, stop in at Rick's Chophouse, located at 107 N. Kentucky Street, and enjoy something off his menu.  (214-726-9251)

This is from Rick's Facebook Page:

" I would like to brag on our Rick's Chophouse team! We just received the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for 2012. Please join me in toasting Ian, Donald and everyone that has worked so hard to make it happen! "

 

Rick's mom and dad are Wanda and Tom Wells who owned a restaurant in Antlers for years.

I still remember ordering their chicken-fried steak, green beans, mashed potatoes, and gravy EVERY time we ate there.


Just in case you don't recognize the older man in the second photo, these might jog your memory.

Congratulations, Rick, from the Antlers High School class of 1969 !

Welcome to the ANTLERS HIGH SCHOOL CLASS of 1969 web-site. It is a work-in-progress and will be updated on a regular basis. Here are a few reasons that it was created:

1)  to assist in planning our 45th reunion 
2)  to locate classmates who are hiding from us
3)  to remain in contact with each other
4)  to post photos of our 40th reunion for those who could not attend

The web-site cannot be successful without everyone's participation.

To protect your personal information, your registration includes an option that allows only registered classmates to view your profile. If this option is selected, search engines and the general public WILL be blocked from accessing your information. Any registered classmate who is logged in, however, WILL be able to view ALL classmate profiles.

Class Creator, our site host, assures us that our site will NOT be subject to advertising, that information posted on our site will NOT be sold or rented to a third party--all information is strictly confidential, and that their spam protection system WILL protect us from spam.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to solely, covertly be an integral part of being an active member on the site and updating your profile on a regular basis.  Your computer will self-destruct in five minutes if you do not participate.

To those who are just visiting and may be planning a reunion, if you do not have a web-site, may I suggest that you RUN, don't walk, to the Class Creator link at the bottom of this page. This will take you to a step-by-step video that is easy to use. The technical support that you will receive is personal and faster than the speed of lightning. Brad and his crew are there to help you create a tool that will insure a successful reunion and also be a special tool to stay in touch with your friends.

Sincerely, 
Kathy Smith Schmoldt
Site Administrator
