Waltrip High School’s class of 1984 held its 35-year reunion last weekend at Karbach Brewing Co. A very good time was had by all.
If you think about it, that should be no surprise because these classmates hail from one of the most rad eras of all time: the ’80s. Radical, dude!
It was a time of bodacious big hair, polka dots, leg warmers, bright colors, spiral perms, anything related to California as well as parachute pants and Members Only jackets – and everybody was trippin’ to iconic music. One of the most notable memories for this particular Waltrip graduating class was the year Waltrip’s football team earned a spot in the playoffs and played on the Astroturf in the Astrodome.
A few of the totally tubular chicks and dudes chillin’ at Karbach, sharing memories of favorite teachers and reliving good times, were Robyn (Carroll) Culver, Vonda (Henry) Bonte, Mike and Rachel Roffall, Kim (Capers) and Paul Kucherka, Susan (Moreno) and Warren Davis, Ann (Mullins) and Mark Herzog, Lisa (Daniels) and David McMillian, Darren and Holly Noak, Juli (Mraz) and Paul Davis, Steven DuBois, Evan Bircher, Mark and Kristi (Kerr) Ritch, James Cordova, James and Stacy Bordwine, Jo Marie Fortner, Sonya (Jordan) Sanzo, Kim (Hamilton) Faldyn, Diana (Lasco) Henk, Donna (Rios) Gordon, Laura Facundo, Sandra Facundo, Chuck Osterhaus, Mark Childs, Kurt Farenthold, Mike Hudson, Pam (Conley) and Dennis Brown, Brandolyn Moore, Patricia (Quick) Allen, Theresa Renee (Orrell) Ariaga, Michael Poe, Joe Huizar, Mario Reyna, Lynn (Fucheck) Ray, Patricia (Quick) Allen, Virginia (Carwile) Dennard, Tracy (Adams) Dacus, Janice Dabney, Celeste Dancer-Dennis, Vickye Neal-Hardy, Lisa Smith-Green, Cheryl Brown-Tims, Towanda Johnson, DeAndrea Wilson, Kimberly Carey-Collin, Courtney Cloud, Demetria Carr, Mark Atchison, Debbie (Nieto) Ace and more.
