Happy Birthday, Janet. May you enjoy many more. Be well and stay safe.
I' so sorry to hear about the loss of another classmate. While I didn't know John well. I always admired his confidence and ability to engage and lead people.
May God continue to comfort and bring peace to all in this difficult time.
Happy Birthday and many more wonderful ones! Have a great year forward.
My first memory of Mr. Ronan was in summer school typing class in 1961 even before I was a freshman where he was the teacher and I was trying to learn how to navigate my recently acquired Royal manual typewriter, a gift from my parents for having just graduated from Madrona 8th grade. I didn't know that the short man teaching the class was to become my class counselor for the next four years. None of us knew at that time how important keyboard skills would be in the decades that followed when computer monitors would replace sheets of paper and our brains learned how to convert abstract thoughts directly into Word docs and emails.
I didn't have a lot of interaction with Mr. Ronan during my time at THS, mainly because I managed to stay out of trouble and, being a band nerd, I had little time outside of the band hall during and after school. We had three different band directors during my four years there, but he was the one constant influence on me at school and I did get to know him at some class activities and events. In particular, I recall his guidance for our senior committee charged to select a painting too hang in the auditorium foyer. My time at Torrance High was happy and I made some good friends, although my family moved just after I graduated so I lost track of my classmates.
Godspeed Mr. Ronan

Eager to see you at the reunion. I am glad you are doing well (though sorry about your first wife).
I am glad I was able to write a note to Mr. Ronan before he passed. He was a truly good man. It was good to see him at our 50th Reunion. I shall long remember him.
I will always remember his amazing memory for all the students he counseled. His encouragement , caring heart and genuine interest in everyone he met brightened everyone’s day.
Happy Birthday on another year. Hope all is well. We are all grateful to you for all the diligent work you do on our THS
